Jesus.. add a f*cking switch FFS. Not 50 pads to constantly move your wires to while testing.
You need this to improve your coolrunner, now come out with something to improve this BEFORE people buy it.
(agreed it should come bundled with kits -- resellers should be offering this item at cost for customers who have already purchased a CR)
A switch doesn't work - it plays with the impedance of the line - there was a big discussion about it on IRC. You dont think this stuff is tested while its being made ? So naive.....
And why should free ones be offered ? this is a tool to make a job easier - not to fix something that was broken
All you armchair complainers - why dont you make your own solutions instead of whining like little bitches ?

This is getting out of hand with all these silly wire lengths and loops.
If you install your CPLD board right next to the CPU_RST point, and keep the wire under 1" there shouldn't be any interference on that signal. Why does everyone insist on putting it on top of the AVIP? Sure it's easy, but you're giving yourself bigger headaches.
If you try different timing values in the CPLD you can also optimize the timing for your particular console. Why spends days playing with wire lengths, spend an afternoon to learn to compile you own JED.
50 cm wires with loops? Come on, KISS.
Your comment was useless and ill informed about why this is required in the first place
its nothing to do with resistance and everything to do with timing.
if you think its as easy as making your own CPLD code then go for it and share with everyone.......
You have to laugh at some of you - you post like you're technical in any way and that you know more than the engineers who work at places like Xecuter lol

Very lame PCB ,
many solder pads for deferent size , why not to use 1 pad for a wire and jumpers ?! even solder jumpers.
and why not to found away to fix the CPU_RST in the first place and make it more stable without all this lame tricks.
Jumpers were tested - as well as switches - they affected the impedance. if you had any clue you'd understand this. Same reason as to why a cable hardness wasn't used on the coolrunner. You don't think all this is tested first ? Similar conversations on IRC about it and you had to laugh at the kids who thought they knew more. the naivety is staggering - but its video games scene - what do you expect?
maybe you should fix the CPU_RST issue in the first place because you are obviously smarter than Tiros who spent over a year designing the hack......This post has been edited by xiaNaix: Dec 5 2011, 08:37 PM
