I forgot, but there are some more intesting pages : http://www.abandonware-magazines.org/af ... &album=oui

They covered the KIC's 91 in a previous issue. As usual, they are selling dreams and are totally clueless about how it works (I believed they thought of the superguns as Neo-Geo consoles, where the carts only contained data and all the hardware was into the supergun itself. :lol:

But, for the time, it was just incredible for us. :awe:

Anyway, on a brighter note, I did translate the COMBO AV EX+ Yahoo listing. Please remember that English is not my mother tongue, so feel free to correct me or ask about any meaning.

The ultimate control box

COMBO AV EX+

Please read the « Extasy » as an old man’s gag.
(Note: I'm totally not sure about this one, I guess I miss context.)

A COMBO AV EX++ (ELF only) is also available.
(Note: here, イーエックスプラプラ is only the way it is meant to be pronounced, which is « E - X (spelled letters) pula pula (plus is purasu in Japanese, which is shortened into pura, pronounced pula with the l slitghtly r). ELF only means that the ++ is dedicated to work with ELF multiboards.)

This is a never seen before control box which not only support LCD monitor (VGA), but also video, S-video and professional 15KHz RGB monitors (HDMI output is optional).
Moreover, it does video and S-Video output with 24KHz boards and can be used as a source for 24KHz video and DVD recording.
Of course, a 3,5mm jack plug is present.

※ Video and S-video outputs' vertical and horizontal sizes can be adjusted.
You can also adjust the brightness and contrast of the screen.
If credits or highscore are not visible, you can fix it.

◆ Made with beautiful robust and durable stainless steel.

◆ The 2L-12B wide panel is carbon styled while the levers and buttons are made by Seimitsu.

◆ Panel is 50cm wide.
(It is the same as the likes of Street 2 or Aero)
(Note: here, they obviously refers to the Sega Aero City panel and to the Street Fighter II button layout.)

※ The interval between the 2 levers is optimized for the best Street Fighter II experience.

◆ The top panel portion can be easily opened and closed for an increased maintenance while the levers and buttons all use quick disconnect terminals, which allows for an easy adjustment and exchange.

◆ Equipped with a rapid-fire circuit (supports the 12 buttons)
Can be turned off to keep buttons to their normal usage.
Speed can be adjusted to six levels and each button can be activated or not.

◆ Volume adjustment and jack are present. (Can also be used for video recording.)

◆ From now on, supplied with an extended JAMMA harness (50cm)
A voltmeter (+5V displayed) will also be included.

◆ Please understand that as it is an handmade product, it has a prototype feeling on certains places.

◆ Separate power source for avoiding noise and ensuring a stable video output.

※ You can immediately play if you have a JAMMA board (buttons 4 and 5 are also supported).
XXXin1 and ELF boards can also be used after some rewiring.
If needed, a JAMMA⇔ELF switch can be installed.

※ It is also possible to use pre-JAMMA games if you create a conversion harness.
The game boards in the pictures are not included.

◆ You can immediately use it if you connect a JAMMA compatible game board.
(Gonbes’ latest version of the GBS-8220 is compatible with most boards, including Sega Model 2B).
The third picture of the listing confirms that it works.
(Note: I once again miss context, but I guess they refer to a picture showing a working Model 2B game.)

◆ Please refer to the picture for the internal and external appearance of the control box.
Some pictures may not be viewed correctly using a smartphone.
Please use a PC browser to read this page and easily check the pictures.

※ An HDMI converter with a 2-way cable included can be optionally purchased for ¥5.000.

◆ About the HD converter
It converts the arcade boards (15kHz, 24kHz) to PC monitor (VGA 31kHz)
HD converter is brand new (it is Gonbes' latest version GBS-8220)
Operating manual is included (explains in English and Japanese how to set up and adjust the picture)

※ If you still don’t understand how to use it or have questions, I will ensure e-mail support after a successful biding.

◆ Specifications (The pictured game boards are not included)

HD converter (Gonbes’ latest version GBS-8220)
Switching power supply +5V 11A, +12V 4A, -5V 1A (made by Smun)
Video, S-video output converter,
two 8Ω speakers, JAMMA connector extended harness,
12 buttons rapid-fire circuit with 6 levels of adjustment


Also, they made a new model. :awe:
Still named COMBO AV EX+ in order to avoid confusion. :problem:
And coming into different flavors so that avoided confusion is more confusing. :think:

I'm almost done with the translation of the selling page of this new model and I will post it if people are interested. I also plan to translate the manual like I did with the Boardmaster, do a review and maybe give some leads and how to for customization (I have some ideas :penser: ), but that will have to wait.

Brilliant find on the kics article, I've just sort of muddled my way through reading it, think I understood it, well most of it :lol:

I'd be very interested in reading your translation for the newest combo AV ex+ 8-) you don't happen to have a picture or a link do you?

To be honest I'd be interested in reading or seeing new pictures of anything control box/ supergun related.

And here it is !
Included italic notes are my own notes, not what comes in the original text.
Also, I merged all four separate texts, so, sometimes, I will add a note telling when a part is not coming from the regular package, as I used it as a basis.

Control box COMBO AV EX+

Notes:
It comes in four flavor:
1. Regular (no particular name)
2. Silent package (using Sanwa silent levers and buttons)
3. Clear color package (using Seimitsu transparent levers and buttons)
4. Full package (with the other packages options included, see after)
Also, it can be ordered
- Without harness

- With harness (with voltmeter display)


Item details

First of it’s kind, equipped with HDMI and VGA high-quality output!

It is a control box that can play arcade games on consumer LCD TV (through HDMI) or on LCD PC monitor (through VGA)!

The HDMI picture is perfectly converted from VGA, so that the picture quality is the same!
(There is no deterioration of picture quality like when converting from video os S-video to HDMI.)

Since the HDMI and VGA are output simultaneously, it is possible to record the game without the need of a splitter.
It can also be connected to a legacy RGB monitor.

◆ The body is made of durable and beautiful stainless steel.
The moderate weight of the stainless allows for a stable play.

◆ The panel is carbon styled and the 2 levers and 12 buttons are all Seimitsu made.

◆ The panel is 50cm wide (it is the same as the likes of Street II or Aero). That means Sega Aero City and Street Fighter II panels.

The levers and buttons all use quick disconnect terminals, which allows for an easy exchange.

Wow - this is quite the extensive list. Very nice. :awe:

What strikes me is that, apart from the Sega & AVx000 units, they are all so enormously ugly :wtf:
How on earth could somebody come up with such bad commercial visual designs? Anybody know the story behind that?

Re: List of Japanese Control Boxes / Superguns - Info & photos

I thought about it and, indeed, I guess I have an answer for the designs.
We need to remember that all these superguns are made by very small companies. Japan is a country where it is quite easy to start a company and it has a a lot of these small companies. This is not professional work by our standards, it is more handmade products. Really think "otaku" here.

In fact, I would say that it is impressive that so few people produced so great items. And, of course, they don't have designers at hand.

I have yet to receive my Combo AV EX+, but I think I saw the service and operator manuals and, well, I wouldn't even call that manuals. They are just a joke. (But the good thing is that they are going to be quite easy to translate, there's nothing much to translate, indeed. ^^

When I see what the likes of Jansen do, well, we have nothing to be proud compared to what a Japanese do. :oops:

How on earth could somebody come up with such bad commercial visual designs?
