Some Framemeister firmware and power supply questions

by alienjesus Thu Apr 27, 2017 1:45 pm

Hi Guys,

I took the plunge and got myself a Framemeister. It's arrived, but I wanted to check a few things.

1. I've heard that I can use a UK PSP power supply as a replacement for the Japanese power supply that comes with the unit. Is this true? I don't want to assume and burn the thing out already!

I've checked the plugs and they seem the same to me, but I've included some photos of the respective power supplies so someone more in the know about these things can make a comparison for me:


2. I know you need a Micro SD card to update the Framemister firmware and profiles. I don't have one spare - does the Micro SD card need to stay permanently in the Framemiester unit, or can I remove it after the update process? I'm going to order a spare anyway, but at least I can see if I can update it now.

Thanks in advance!

hi alien , i have a Framemeister too and for Profiles you need to leave the Micro SD Card in the scaler. To update the Firmware you just install it and then you delete the update from the SD Card.

also check out Firebrandx's Profiles below............

there is a dedicated Thread over at shmups forum for the Framemeister , you may find an answer there for your PSU question. ... 1d8be27bd0

My Framemeister's power supply is rated at 5A 2500mA output. The PSP adapter you have is rated at 5A 2000mA which slightly less power but not enough to hurt it. If it power on, you should be good to go!
