    Atomiswave always goes into test menu.

    I think the issue might be the test service button or something like that being burnt out because I can manage to get the game. But in a weird way. The game would only boot with the I/O expansion plugged in, but I cannot use the joystick I have that is plugged into my supergun or access the test menu pressing the test service button on the back of my supergun, it's as if the joystick and the service buttons don't work. If I take off the I/O expansion when the Atomiswave is on and the game is already loaded, I can just press the start button and I can play the game normally as complete functionality returns to the joystick and i can go into the test menu by pressing the test service button. If I were to turn on the Atomimswave without the I/O expansion slot plugged in, it would always go straight into the test menu and i can't get into the game at all.

    So in order to get into the game and play it, i have to boot up the atomiswave with i/o expansion plugged in, then pull it off once the game is loaded. I have to do this everytime which is a minor annoyance. If i start up the game without the I/O expansion plugged in, it will just boot to the test menu as stated above.

    When i'm in the test menu, I can see that all the buttons are set to the OFF position and will change to ON when the proper button is pressed. So i think the issue has something to do with the test service being burnt out.

    I also have zero knowledge and skills when it comes to soldering and the such.

    The game i'm playing is King of Fighters XI
    The supergun I have is the slingshot model that I bought from D-Lite from the neo-geo forums

    Can you also see if the test button is on or off in that screen? (I don't remember what it looks like). If you can't you should get a multimeter and check if there is continuity between the test pin on the jamma connector and a ground pin.

    It's off in the screen, but when I push the test button, it goes to "on" and back to "off" when i release the button.

    OK. So what else could be causing the system to go into test mode... is DIP switch #2 off?

    No! It was set to on! I turned it off and it fixed the problem, thanks! I didn't think that if it was set to on, that it would make it always go into the test menu.

    Can you explain to me why it does this?

    Because DIP sw #2 is... test mode!



    Glad to see it was an easy fix

    Haha, damn! thanks again for the help, do you also know where I can find the AW manual online? The person I bought it from did not have the manual with the AW board.

    Hello, I am new on the forum, I have an eurogame border with a mobo atomiswave and I have a problem when I activate the dip switc 2 of the menu.
    Here is an explanatory video.

    The button SERVICE "R" is thus connected no risk of button which remains pushed.


    An idea of the problem?
    Thank you.
