Alright. No stranger to Whitestar, but sound issues in Whitestar, oh yeah.
Let me give all y’all some background on this one.
I picked this game up from a guy who did a bulk warehouse buy. This thing had been sitting for a VERY long time.
The CPU that game with this game is destroyed from battery damage, it’s not salvageable. Also, some water damage and mold is apparent.
I decided to swap all three boards from Striker Xtreme to make this game boot.
I cleaned the CPU chip as best I could, I have a new one and the display one to match coming soon.
Anyways - the largest issue at this point: the sound is coming in fine - except for an extreme amount of static.
I do believe the ROM chip is bad as every third boot or so will cause a factory reset.
Is this the speaker? The lines look fine. Is it the ROM? A connection on a board?
Any advice would be appreciated.
