@Vojin, do you believe Phase5 is going to come back for sure? And actually create and sell new Blizzard accelerators?
Whole product range? With no production and repair? Seems he will TRY to have something to sell.
If he got the original prints for the boards, he would have all the layers, even the ground layer. Correct?
With the benefit of a doubt, the print for the ground layer could have been lost, or the pcb manufactorer could have messed up and missed a layer.
This is however quite implausible. To a new customer, a company creating pcbs would want to show that they can be counted on.
Ok, so I realize that you donít know me or what I know or do not know, so I will tell you.
I am 37 years old. My first real electronics project was converting a joypad to work with my Amiga 500. I was 14 years old. At 16 I had an internship at an electronics company in my home town. At that time I had changed the 1.2 rom to a 1.3 rom in the same A500 without anybody telling me how to. I just understood how that worked. I learned more stuff at this company where I was. I actually built machines there, and later in college, I majored in electronics.
Thatís very brief, but just this brief insight into my past should tell anyone who knows anything at all about electronics, that I should know that the ground layer must exist on the boards, OR that at least connections from one ground point to another, to the next, and the next after that, and so on, MUST exist!!
There is NO question about this, what so ever, for those who knows something about electronics. With no ground, you WILL have an incomplete circuit.
So, his bad ways of comunicating with other people aside, he can be rude or mean, or just bad at PR in general, but if you donít test the connections on boards that you order, so you will know that it will work, you donít know jack shit about electronics. Thatís him, this ĒVDĒ of ĒPhase5Ē.
So ok, letís say that he is actually serious about selling working Blizzard accelerators, he will need to hire an electronics engineer, or at least someone knowledgable enough to solve the problem. I could have solved it, but him alone? Not a chance. If you sell those cards and claims that the one who bought the Ēbroke themĒ (seriously?), he either doesnít care about his reputation, or doesnít understand that he is ruining it.
Vojin, I respect you, but I just want to tell you, and everyone else who believes this fraud, just let it go. It is very unlikely (unfortunately) that Phase5 will really resurface
