Lately i'm in a bad luck strike! XD. i have a PC Engine Core Grafx II. It was sitting in my home waiting for a SSDS3. I finally got one, only to discover that my console had a problem. I have a original PAC LAND HuCard, and the game works flawlessly. However, other games such a Youkai Douchuuki have minor or heavy graphical glitches, rendering them impossible to play
Also, SSDS3 shows the same errors, and CD games won't even past the "press run" screen
Bonker looked like this:
I began troubleshooting RAM modules and HU C6270. Reflowed RAM and stayed the same. However, when i reflowed the Hu C6270, seems to be that i shorted / overheat something, the problem got worse and then the console only shows a white screen. I only applied solder flux and reflowed the connection pins. Also, checked the rear pins, they are all perfect, also cleaned the contacts and no signs of corrosion or anything related.
How to test if i really killed that module? I ordered a RAM replacement and i'm trying to buy some bad pc engines to remove and replace parts.
Here is also a picture of the board, no broken traces at sight
I'm waiting for a heat gun to arrive, to proper desolder the HUC6270 chip and check for broken traces below it.
spenoza: So Power Golf and Lords of Thunder are too laggy to be much fun, but most of the other shooters are pretty sound, owing to being pretty damn responsive in their original form.

spenoza: All retro prices are up. Something about people being stuck at home and desperately needing stuff to do. It's why Netflix viewership is up and why Disney+ accidentally stumbled into the perfect launch window.
