Re: How can I make my Net City Jamma?

I made them because I wasn't entirely happy with what was available. Tri-Sync Helpers are on the way, no ETA but guesstimate about 6 weeks.

Doom Eternal

Anyone else picked this up? So far I like it, new key-bindings are a little confusing and after getting a little frustrated I reverted back to I'm young to die :awe:

Re: JVSPAC & keyboard/mouse > console converters?

Has anyone tried a JVSPAC 1 (MAME firmware) or 2 with one of those converters that lets you use a keyboard & mouse on a console? I'm pretty sure a 1 won't work at all (because it operates as 3 keyboards), but a 2 - maybe that would @invzim ? Although I can't see any of them working as a keyboard > ...

Re: JVS-PAC feature requests

@invzim did you ever release something with the stuck input fix? I had the release for 1P ESC but since getting back into cab use I've had things get stuck a couple of times, wondering if that was in a newer beta I missed. I don't think I did, looking at the git repo there is a commit that claims t...

New PC, any good games to play?

Did a long overdue desktop upgrade, last game I really played on the PC was Call Of Durty 4: modern warfare, which according to steam I last played in 2011 :) I'm not much of a multi-player person, but I really enjoyed going through the story. Since I last updated my desktop, everything is gamer-thi...

Re: New Mame setup

Learned today that windows ships with a program called timeout, and with 7 seconds before attract-mode is launched all is good. Changing the arcade_31 monitor definition from 480 to 512 vertical lines and setting 0 0 for interlace fixed the modes, so afaik all is good now :awe: Had another issue whe...

Re: New Mame setup

Got the PC yesterday and had a brief play, cpu wise it looks very very good. Not really super intuitive to get the super modes etc working. One issue I experienced though, is that it seems to refuse to generate modes >480 lines - monitor definition? Also, want to avoid ALL interlaced modes as it pic...

New Mame setup

As I've just opened up sale of the JVS-PAC 2, I figured it's time to get a modern mame setup for 31K JVS gaming :awe: Ordered a refurb Dell Optiplex 9010 SFF, Quad Core i5-3570 3.4GHz / Radeon 6450 1GB / 8GB RAM which should be here next week. Current plan is to use windows 7, attract mode and Groov...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

Sorry to hijack thread, but to avoid confusion as the Jammafier was mentioned I should mention the jammafier (not riverservice) link logic: Player 1 inputs on secondary cabinet will be player 2 on primary cabinet. Player 2 inputs on both cabinets are ignored. Primary and secondary non-player input w...

Re: Linking Sega JVS I/O 837-13551

Good question. I guess it's something you just have to try out. It would need to be supported by the RS jamma converter. I think invzim was thinking about this functionality for his jamma converter, not sure if he ever added it. For JVS games, most fighting games seem to support linking IO boards. ...

Re: NNC with Atomiswave?

I'm not intimate with the atomiswave motherboard, but I see that it has a few oddities like only sending composite sync via the VGA connector? Also not sure about the audio, so no guarantees - check out https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Sammy_Atomiswave#Hardware_Manual For controls though and mono audi...

Re: How to get this kind of Jamma edge?

Mike's arcadeshop has them, I think they're NOS:

AFAIK not available on the general market, but the Vewlix Jamma scaler kit uses a crimped jamma edge connector which they must have gotten from somewhere.

Re: Naomi Replacement Fan Mount

Got the fan today, and did the replacement - works great! It's not a direct fit - but a little glue secured it nicely.
