h4kp2n Posted October 4, 2017 Report Share Posted October 4, 2017 Hi, I just received a Papilio Pro from seedstudio(china) and the two megawings (retrocade synth and arcade) from a german distributor about two weeks ago, and the megawings both don't work. I post this in the Papilio Pro board to find out, if the PP is broken, or both MegaWings are broken (might also be, they look a bit used) I tried the retrocade synth first with papilio loader 2.8: - writing to SPI flash works, verifying also, but the time it takes seems to vary a lot -> verifying was OK every time I tried - writing to FPGA also seems to work fine, I also switched the loader to expert mode like suggested in another thread - no reaction to MIDI input (double checkt the cable and keyboard I used) - at one point, a demo started to play ("welcome to re-re-retrocade" and then some music), but it sounded really glitchy (first some voices sounded like they skipped a few notes, but it got worse to the point that hardly any notes were played) - most times the display stayed blank, once I got to the space invader menu where i could select midi channel etc. with the joystick, but still no reaction to the keyboard - when I started the programming operation, the space invader thing showed on the display during the programming process, but disappeared when the programming was done Then I also tried the Arcade MegaWing with the latest version of the software, loaded a game, but my VGA monitor didn't display anything. I didn't test this one a lot though (if it would have worked I could have been sure the Retrocade Wing was malfunctioning). I use Win10 and enabled the Testmode to install the unsigned drivers before I installed both MegaWing's software. Question: Is there an easy way to verify that the Papilio pro board is the broken one? Some diagnostic tool or something? I don't really want to send it back to china before I know for sure which board is damaged. Would be happy about any suggestions what else I could try. Thanks in advance, Henrik Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
