How would you upgrade the video output?
To anyone enjoying AES with headphones, the easy solution to reversed L/R audio AESes follows...
As noted here and elsewhere, SNK actually manufactured some AESes with an engineering error: The Left and Right audio channels on some AESes are incorrectly reversed through the headphone jack. This means Left audio channel comes through the Right side, and vice versa. An easy way to tell if your AES does this, using a common cart, is play Fatal Fury Special with headphones and use any power move that temporarily knocks your opponent to the floor on either side of the screen - the side of the screen your opponent falls on is the side you should hear the sound effect of the body hitting the ground through headphones. If you hear it in the opposite side, then you own an AES with reversed audio.
The above is common knowledge to some people. However some AES owners may not have noticed. If this is news to you, and your AES is affected, then whenever using a 3.5mm-headphone-to-dual-RCA cable for connecting your AES to TV/hi-fi, you should plug the Left RCA plug into the Right channel on your TV/hi-fi and vice versa.
I hope it is ok to post this here! I am having a weird audio issue with my neo geo aes and am stumped as to what to try next. It is hard to explain so i made a video which you can view here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZdJGw9GvNw
Sometimes the audio works and sometimes it does what the video shows but i have never ever been able to hear the starting neo geo tune on system turn on.
Any help would be appreciated and again if i shouldn't have posted this hear please delete this
You have some broken traces from the cart slot for sound. They need to be repaired. But if it only happens from time to time, it's most likely just a dirty slot.
Hi Xian, thank you for the reply. I just tried cleaning the slot with some alcohol and get the same results. It used to be from time to time i would get sound but now it does what the video does 100% of the time. It's weird because different games have different audio glitches. I tried looking for broken traces but could not find any. I found some traces where the lacquer is missing but i tested with the multimeter and they ohm out at 0. Should i try replacing the YM2610 sound chip?
On 3.3 it didn't fix for me. If you fix it please tell me what to doI've never had a AES3-5 with the noise issue.
However, MKL was right, the AES3-3 has the same noise issue as the 3-4. For the 3-3, is the fix still the same? I'd like to try and remedy it the next time I'm inside the 3-3.
