On this cold sunday morning, i decided to go in the basement to get some milk for breakfast. Suddenly on my way back uppstairs, Sinterklaaske36 appeared himsef !! He looked at me and said with a strong eastern accent :



Like any kid receiving a gift , i rushed to open the gift ! And what a gift ! a outrun control panel  . THANKS SINTERKLAASKE36



along with the cp , i got a power supply, pedals assy and force feedback pcb.



And even a original sega pengo pcb


And the "plat de resistance" a complete Turbo outrun pcb coming from the abandonned warehouse. I asked this to sinterklaas in order to try to fix my original outrun pcb as turbo outrun is just a upgrade of the original.


The pcb still looks good despite his storage condition. It's a suicidal pcb, so i did not have much fate , but i decided to give it a try



TADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA it's working with full sound !!! I'm so happy , that means my outrun cab will have a outrun pcb soon Smiley

Many many thanks Sinterklaaske36 !!

ps: fyi , Sinterklaas is a tradition here in BE,NL,FR .On the evening of the 5th december , if you've been a good kid and if you left some milk (my father prefered beer ^^) and carrots near the firepit , the next day in the morning, sinterklaas will reward you with toys and candies.

France ? Do they really have Sinterklaas in France ?

I do know about Belgium and I think maybe the western part of Germany too ?

Great thing that it works ! Can you convert it back to Outrun ?

It's quite normal that the PCB is working: you should know that Saint Nicolas brings defect toys only to very naughty boys  Grin

We also have the similar tradition in Hungary called Mikulás (Santa Claus)! Grin
The kids love it, they put their cleaned shoes to the window on the 5th of December and they find it with full of candies in the next morning! Grin

i think it's only in north of france.

It can be converted back to an outrun as it seems that turbo outrun is just a roms swap according to this manual http://tamdb.net/index.php?page=ManualDetail&id=3216
Considering that my faulty pcb outrun passed the rom check, it should be easy :p

now i'm hesitating a bit to kill the turbo , but the prequel is better, and nothing prevent me to get the decrypted roms of turbo outrun later
