Re: Running Sega Lindbergh on a Blast City

Thanks for all the input folks! Looks like the power part is settled. Also good thing to know Silver contains the actual motherboard as well. Looks like the question now would be whether games require an internet connection in order to run, for a game like VF5 Final Showdown which does have online r...

Running Sega Lindbergh on a Blast City

Asking for a friend, who's eyeing this silver Lindbergh unit on Yahoo JP: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9qxi6m_QG84/VX8DlgdooGI/AAAAAAAADHA/qAURGPfr3Ec/s1600/red_server1.jpg (Googled pic, not from actual auction) He owns a Blast City cab with the Capcom JVS I/O, and was wondering what other pieces of th...

Just found out about this thread, awesome.

I own one Sega Blast City, and I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

No problem, thanks for confirming they are indeed niche :shifty:

Please do update here if you ever come across them though, I am always interested in ordering one of each. Thanks!

I figured this would be the perfect thread to ask: Does anybody happen to have the actual marquee or a high res scan of these VF3/3tb designs please? The last one on yahoo jp auctions was sniped from me so I'm out of options :lolno: http://nms.sakura.ne.jp/37996.jpg http://nms.sakura.ne.jp/37978.jpg...

Re: Virtua Fighter 3 Model 3 filter board harness on a Blast City

Thanks @nem and @hikaru! Great to know there's a female adapter to hook up the 001 cable. 600-6738-20 loom seems to be the best solution to play model 3 on Blast City for sure, but upon extended searching, this loom seems to be even harder to find than the 001, eek. Anyway, this should be enough inf...

Re: Virtua Fighter 3 Model 3 filter board harness on a Blast City

Thanks so much nem. One follow up question: Jamma doesn't have 3.3V, that's why there's the transformer in the middle of the harness (which is slightly superfluous in this case, as the Blast City outputs 3.3V. However, of course you would need to tap it). Could you please elaborate a little on how t...

Virtua Fighter 3 Model 3 filter board harness on a Blast City

I just got back from Tokyo! Boy do I have pictures for y'all, I visited all the arcades I could find, as well as arcade parts/PCB shops. But before that, a friend sent out a SOS call concerning his newly acquired Blast City and a Virtua Fighter 3 board set (rom + filter, the whole nine). His situati...

I/O board + Power for playing Naomi in a Blast City

All the Capcom I/O boards I have found so far are going for $180 USD or above after shipping . So I'm trying to come up with a more economic solution, would it work the same way if I use a Sega 600-7143-003 loom (provide power and receive stereo sound input): https://preview.ibb.co/hbRPtv/IMG_201702...

Re: Nanao MS-2930-S 31khz Display issue with Naomi

This makes me think something is defective with your dip switches -- if the second switch is up, it should be in 15khz regardless of the first switch position. When I test, DOWN UP UP and UP UP UP both behave the same for me -- they sync to 15khz. This could very well be the case - upon taking owne...

Re: Nanao MS-2930-S 31khz Display issue with Naomi

Hi, I came across your post as part of research during my restoration of a Blast City with MS-2930 monitor. Just thought I'd share my findings: Using a dreamcast to test the monitor's on-board VGA input (since I don't have any jamma boards yet) I initially got an out of sync picture: https://preview...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

Greetings! Steve here from beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Recently I was fortunate enough to become an owner of a Sega Blast City cab, and from my weeks of research this forum has provided so much info about this cab. Without this knowledge I wouldn't even know how to dissemble the giant thing ...
