Re: Automatic 15/25khz switching for Nanao MS8/MS9 for everyone - interest check

We also still need to think it a non invasive way to interrupt the 100vAc to the monitor. The easiest way for the end user would probably to have an inline 15 pin AMP UP pass though. Basically a 15 pin female and a 15 pin male connector with RGBS/GND and demag wires connected straight through. You ...

Re: Automatic 15/25khz switching for Nanao MS8/MS9 for everyone - interest check

It's connected directly to the chassis via the 15 pin AMP UP. Needs to be a momentary switch.

Sorted the home linking out.
Good stuff cools, that was the only thing I had noticed, glad to see it's been fixed already.

Just out of interest, are there any forum enhancements that come with phpBB3 3.3.0, either front or back end?

Re: Automatic 15/25khz switching for Nanao MS8/MS9 - interest check

I didn’t know they were so rare, I bought one last year from a guy in France who sells recapped MS9 chassis, and I’m using it in my Egret 2. Will still be interested by your solution though. I'm not so sure either now after googling a bit earlier, it looks like [ brad808 has three auto switching ch...

Re: Automatic 15/25khz switching for Nanao MS8/MS9 - interest check

Good stuff, looking forward to seeing the proto type :)

There is a (rarez) revision of the MS9 that has auto sync sensing/switching. There's a bit of information in a thread [here]. I don't know if finding out the specs of those relays etc would be of any use?

First of all, you guys are all the greatest. The fact that you would all help a total stranger (who probably knows too little about the topic to even be welcome here) is beyond words.

Re: Please Help Me Get My Astro City Working!

Apologies for the late reply, busy old week.... There are a few ways to crack this particular nut but this is probably the easiest.

Re: Remote for 15/24kHz switching on Nanao MS9

I wouldn't want to try switching resolutions with the monitor turned on. I always turned the cab off before flipping the 12v switch. If it's set to off then the relay will be in it's '15kHz output' position and the monitor will run at 15kHz. If it's set to on then the relay will be in it's '15kHz ou...

Re: Please Help Me Get My Astro City Working!

Yes, it works!!!! So, if you still have patience to help, any advice for the kick buttons? I have a kick harness dangling down, and I also have wires for buttons 5 & 6 for Players 1 & 2 from the crappy game board, but which goes into where? Glad to see it working, especially after sitting in an unk...

Re: Super Nintardbros!

I downloaded it and ran it just to see if it worked but it was running a bit quick. There is a fix for it but I decided not to play it as Ninty are supposedly releasing a load of remastered Mario games, including SM64, for the Switch for the 35th Anniversary. I thought I would wait for that to play ...

Received already the connectors, relais and contacts :awe: still missing AWG18 wire - do you think AWG20 is fine too? No idea :awe: It's a very short cable length so I can't imagine the difference in cross section making that much difference but I'm not an electrical engineer. I know 24/0.2 (18awg)...

Re: Remote for 15/24kHz switching on Nanao MS9

We don't know for sure but from the testing that emphatic and ckong did it looked like wire length may have been causing issues on their original version. It's hard to tell for sure. dieKatze88 came up with the idea of using relays to keep the yoke wiring at a minimum length. I tried it and it worke...

Has it really been ~9 years :wtf: Saying that, the 'quality' of the wiring in those photos certainly looks old enough :lolno: I've just re-hosted the photos so they're no longer on **** and shouldn't disappear in the future.

Re: Namco System 23 Power up

I take it you've searched for a manual/wiring diagram?

There's a Time Crisis 2 DLX (System 23) manual [here]. There's a wiring diagram with pinouts on the last four pages.

Re: Super Nintardbros!

Yeah I'm not overly keen on the buttons/Dpad. I've contacted ExtremeRate to see if they sell coloured Dpads separately. If they do offer them I'll change out the Dpad and buttons.
