Sounds good! :)

After this campaign you should consider making a Sega Saturn PSU ;)
The design could be very similar to the Dreamcasts.


Your not the first to mention a saturn PSU,
I have looked into it and its going to be slightly more complicated because of the 3 types of power supply, with the first one being the biggest ass to deal with. I will hopefully get round to doing it, But i need to get hold of the 3 different power supply versions first :D

I have two busted saturns I use for parts, a model 1 and model 2 both are ntsc systems. If I can dig them out id be willing to donate them

I know the model 2 power supply is good. the model 1 supply may need a new fuse.

I should have picked that up from the NTSC systems statement... lol.
I'm in the UK, so shipping might be expensive, but if your willing to ship then i'm willing to pay.

Just found out about the DreamPSU which seems like a perfect fit for my workhorse Dreamcast and my sealed NOS at some point...

Ordered a triple pack, hopefully this is not too late since the campaign is over?!

I put the campaign into "InDemand" mode whilst im getting everything else finalized before manufacture, i will close the campaign a couple of days before manufacturing starts, so your order will be made :)

Thanks for the contribution.
Chris.
