Let's start by saying some facts of what this Ultimate 3DK Multigame kit entails...
Do I need to send in my PCB to get the kit installed?
You DO NOT have to send your PCB in to get "upgraded"! You can save the shipping and install yourself in approximately 15 minutes! No soldering is necessary. Check out the new installation video guide. Who needs a PDF anymore? Sheesh...
Wait?!? I can install it myself? Yes.
Does the 3DK Multigame kit sound correct? [Click link for sound comparison video]
There are options that you, the buyer of the 3DK Multigame kit, can select in the interactive Game Settings menu, to allow for the best sound possible to your ears. We all know the original sounds, now you can play each game the way it should be. The "walking", "climbing", "falling", "jump" analog sounds are being used from DK on DKJr game inside the kit. There is also an option to use the NES version of sounds for DKJr analog. There is also a 100% accurate sounds, external module that is on your kit, this is set in the settings as default.
I've heard that you can only run both games on a DKJR PCB?!?
Well, you've been told wrong for many years. Some also said that DK3 won't run on a DK PCB too, again, that's not true. As you can now see on our YouTube Channel.
This kit plays on a Donkey Kong Junior PCB. Not a DK, not a DK3.
Let's get to some of the fun stuff! See below.
- Kill screen switchable - Live on man, live on! Able to turn on/off in DIPs (only on standard DK/Pauline)
This is the best Donkey Kong Jr multigame save kit
Really like the standard game list. Rearranged Edition is so cool
Works perfect in my DKJR Cockrell cabinet
We love Rearranged edition!
This is the greatest multi kit ever invented!
My installation was easy. I read another review that said they had to solder in a socket. NOT HERE! Took about 20 minutes from start to finish and I was playing some Rearranged!
Works great -- but it will possibly require soldering
Despite what the description says, you MAY need to do some soldering -- or rather, desoldering, to install this kit. My DKJr board did not have a socketed 8035 - it was soldered to the motherboard. There was no evidence that this board had been worked on before (factory soldering job, no flux residue from repair jobs, etc), so I think it's safe to assume it came from the factory like this. I had to desolder it first, then install a socket prior to installing the kit. Check your DKJr board before ordering this if you don't have the proper equipment to safely remove soldered in chips. Maybe my board is an anomaly, I can't say for sure.
Always wanted a kit like the 3DKJr! Amazingly easy install (did it myself)! Great save kit with a lot of options!
Do I need to send in my pcb to get the kit installed?
You DO NOT have to send your pcb in to get "upgraded"! You can save the shipping and install yourself in approximately 15 minutes! No soldering is necessary. Check out the new Installation Video or the Installation Guide PDF.
Wait?!? I can install it myself? The answer is yes.
Does the Ultimate 3DK Donkey Kong Multigame Free Play and High Score Save kit sound correct?
What about the sounds?!?
There are options that you, the buyer of the 3DK Multigame kit, can select in the interactive Game Settings menu, to allow for the best sound possible to your ears. We all know the original sounds, now you can play each game the way it should be. There will be an additional modual at a later date after the kits release for those who choose...
I've heard that you can only run both games on a DKJR pcb?!?
Will this kit be able to play on a 4 board DK stack?
Short answer is no. The daughter cards that are for this 3DK Multigame kit only fit on the 2 pcb stack. Will I change the layout of the kit to accomodate a 4 board stack? Possible, but, do not hold your breath.
There are other projects way ahead of a "cocktail stack" kit. Sorry. Will the 3DK kit allow you to play in a cocktail table? Only if you have a DKJR cocktail, with a DK 2 board stack inside. A normal DK cocktail does not have the room to put a 2 board stack inside. Hope that makes things clear!
Do I need a PCB Switcher and other kits to make this work on my DK PCB?
This in all enclusive multigame kit that install on a 2 board DK PCB.
No more switchers, no individual kits. This will do it all!
How do I unlock the new Editions?
Unlocking the new Editions....great question. While I will not say exactly HOW to unlock each Edition to earn the ACHIEVEMENT of new editions to be added to menu screen, I will say they are only unlocked inside the Rearranged Edition... ;)
There is a vid on our YouTube channel showing how to unlock the Black Hammer Edition!
How do I get into the settings menu?
This is a standard in all of our kits! Click the button for even more Tips & Tricks!
My Menu is corrupt! What do I do?
This is the pic Adam had on his screen -
Let's start simple...
What does each daughter card do on the kit?
- 2e+2f = colors only | 2n = colors of characters (no objects!)
- 3n/3p = character set
- 7c,7d,7e,7f = objects (sprites)
Colors seem to be ok (so, not 2e-2f), Character colors seem to be ok (girders have the correct color) -> So, not 2N,
Charactes are ok (girders are girders) ->So, not 3n/3p.
Only the sprites are not correct, I would bet on the cable with the grabber off the 7c-7f daughter pcb or, just reseat the whole 7c-7f pcb
