Re: DDR Cabs

I've no idea ,but will watch your mid life crisis with interest :D :awe: I'm not bald or fat enough to buy a 911 (although I probably have the pre-requisite small willy), so a new cab it has to be. Other idea is to build a Megalo clone cab, since 50" Rear Projection screens are cheap here. I'm temp...

Re: DDR Cabs

Looking like the cost is going to be the major factor here :awe: since the NZ Peso conversion rates to real currency means everything is a **** more expensive, then shipping on top! Looking at building a controller platform, then linking to either a console, or one of the windows based systems - sin...

DDR Cabs

Hi, Think I'm starting my mid-life crisis phase :awe: and for some reason have decided I want to get a DDR machine. Wife & kids are up for it, but I'm not sure which I should be looking for. Can I buy an early version and use later software, or buy a later one and use earlier versions? Just want the...

Light-gun Screen Height

Not sure if this should go here, or not... I've managed to score a 29" 4:3 CRT for $10, and the main use will be for light-gun games using consoles. What sort of height should I have the screen for stand-up use? I'm planning to knock up a stand for the CRT, but don't have anything I can use to tempo...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

OK, Now I am totally confused :eh: I've tried a quick & dirty fix on the IO with the stuck P2 down input, by cutting the trace out of the Opto-isolator. In the JVS test, I now see the input is at 0, and the P1 inputs test fine on both JVS nodes. What is confusing the hell out of me now is that when ...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

So had a bit of a prod around, but not much to tell while it's not powered on. I'm suspecting that the opto-coupler is duff, but will need to test that while I've got power going through the I/O and see what the other pins are up to under "normal" operation. At this point (assuming the opto is the i...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551 - Updated 24/3

Well swapping the I/O's made no difference, as the riverservice obviously see's the P2 controls regardless of which IO is where. So I'm looking at fixing the stuck pin on the IO - anyone tried this before? Can't find any hardware specs on the IO online, but I'm wondering if the bank of ICs near the ...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

OK. It's only taken me the best part of 11 years, but I fnally have the Mushiking cabs linked & working. :awe: One issue I have now discovered is that I seem to have a stuck input on the P2 side of the slave I/O :mad: The Joystck Down input is stuck at 1 regardless of if there is a cable connected t...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

So, success with the VGA "Y" cable. Picture is good on both monitors which is nice. Now I find out I have a load of the I/O connectors, but no pins :mad: :mad: so going to have to butcher a loom or 2 to get something working. Part of that involves working out which is the P1 Analogue connector (whit...

Re: Lindbergh Amp.

Wiring diagram is on the wiki (linky below) page 87,

https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/images/f/f ... abinet.pdf

but this has a different Amp. I'd hazard a guess that the 5-pin is the power, 4 pin is the speaker out, and the 3-pin for the volume.

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

OK, Managed to borrow a VGA splitter from work, and can confirm it won't work with the Naomi set to 15k. Might just be the brand be have (ATEC), but I suspect it's not locking to the signal correctly. Off to find a DB-15 Y-splitter cable today, and just **** around with the monitor settings to get a...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

Thanks for that. Shame Riverservice didn't think to do the same thing :mad: Can't find my other 60-pin loom, so looks like a weekend of crimping & soldering for me :awe: Anyone used a VGA splitter box for 15k signals? I'm assuming they just split & amplify the input signal, or will it only work with...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

So good news & not so good news. I setup a 2nd I/O as the last in a chain, so Naomi > "Main I/O" > "Slave I/O" I'm turning the slave cab on 1st (to power the I/O) and then the main cab. Only have 2 buttons (Start & Fire) rigged up on the slave cab, as can't find my JVS>Control Panel loom. Fired up C...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

Hmm,

I guess I'll give it a go & hopefully don't blow anything in the process.

Video is easy, either a VGA splitter for Naomi, or the riverservice has dual video / audio outs.
Audio is a single RCA lead, as the Mushi's are only mono.

Thanks

One is running a Sega 837-13551 I/O, and I have a riverservice JAMMA thingy for JAMMA games. The 2nd cab ispretty much empty, with just monitor & SUN PSU and is going to be ...

Re: Wiring two cabinets for back to back play

I'm currently in the process of doing this for my 2 Mushiking cabs. Ideally I want to get decent mutli-core cable to keep it tidy, but it seems anything over 7 core is either like rocking horse ****, or $$$. For the MKs, I'm just running everything from a single JVS I/O in the "master" cab, then run...
