Re: Hello from Japan

Welcome Seth! I haven't had to rebuild a new PSU myself, but all the info on what voltages etc etc are here, so it shouldn't be too impossible. Also, modern PCB design and fabrication means a custom board is a single click away. Let me know if you need any additional help. First thing I'd be looking...

First Post for 2022

I decided it was looking a bit quiet around here :-) What are all our CreatiVision plans for 2022? Mine are: Replace all the power regulators in the Wizzard - It gets twitchy when hot. I suspect it's something around either the 5v regulator or the 12v regulator. Build the keyboard adapter developed ...

Re: Dick Smith Wizzard TV ad

That's... something special.
Thanks for posting that. I don't remember seeing it at the time. However, I was in regional Australia to it may not have made it to local stations.

Re: Correct connector for CreatiVision replacement keyboard / joysticks

Been working on a new version. I don't have it quite right yet but we're getting there. DSCF2580[1].jpg I'm having adhesion problems with the overhangs. I might try printing it at an angle.

Correct connector for CreatiVision replacement keyboard / joysticks

So, if, like me, you have tried using DuPont connectors to connect your home brew joystick / keyboard adapter to your Creativision, you've probably found the connection less than perfect. WHen I last opened up one of the controllers, I looked inside the connector end and thought "that looks suspicio...
