Re: Sega Naomi Amp

Seems it's an issue with my Naomi2 MB.

JAMMA boards seem to be working fine via the Riverservice adapter, but the Right Channel of the Naomi is much lower than the Left.

Will have to dig out the N1 to see if that's affected...

Sega Naomi Amp

OK, I've got a pair of Mushiking cabs. One is stripped down to just have monitor & control panel, the other is a full JVS setup, with a riverservice JVS>JAMMA for JAMMA games. I've modified the original wiring loom so it has wiring for 1L6B for both players (P2 via a long extension loom) video is sp...

Re: How to rebuild a Sega Naomi Universal cabinet

Sorry, I don't have the images and have no idea what the account used for photobucket was - I have a feeling I copied from sega-naomi forum when I posted here, and they had posted the images for me.

Re: Buying EEPROMs for board repairs

I have boxes of used EPROMs, so if you're after anything in particular feel free to PM me & I'll see if I have what you need.
I'm in Auckland, so postage shouldn't be too expensive to you.

Re: How to wire JlF Sanwa in american dynamo cabinet

Yep you can do that, and probably the cleanest method if you're not going to put the original sticks back in.

If you want the option to reinstall the original sticks, then just hook up 1 of the ground wires and put insulating tape over the other connectors.

Re: HELP!!! Using jamma games on new net city

Connectors on the NNC are AMP-UP connectors. If you get stuck finding them, let me know, I have a load of 10 and 12 way connectors and pins.
<edit>
You'll also need to check that the monitor supports standard Resolution (15kHz), or you'll need a CGA>VGA converter as well.

Re: Sega Model 3 at Home

Hello everyone. I still haven't been able to figure out what I need. According to the linked thread, the first thing I should get is a PCB. If that's right, where can I look for one? From that thread, I think I will also need: -Power Unit -Console Steering Wheel How can I get the video and audio si...

Re: Joystick for Sanwa panel

Based on the arcadejapan pics, I think you want the SS-P40 - The MS is flat, so the shaft will sit lower, whereas the SS-P40 looks like it should mate with the panel bracket.

Adding RGB to a TV

OK, I have been given a **** no-name CRT which has a pretty good picture, but being in NZ it only has composite input. I have read on forums about feeding a TV an RGB signal, but wondered if anyone here had any input... The chassis is a Hyundai one, and it has 2 main ICs on it (LC863320A & LA76810)....

Re: SEGA NAOMI I/O related questions

According to the Naomi Kit manuals, if you have power on the JAMMA connector, then don't apply power via the header. The manual states that you should only connect Switch, Switch Ground, Video and coin counters - although you can feed the video from the Naomi Mobo direct to your monitor if it has a ...

Re: Need some help with a Nanao MS8-26su

I had a similar issue with my 14" Sanwa CRTs in the mushi-king cabs. It could be the photos, but the white looks on the "red" side to me in that test pattern. I managed to fix by marking the position of all the POTs on the chassis & neck board, then with the power off turned all the POTs all the way...

SR3s are easy to "teach". I've converted my UK mechs to take NZ coinage, and it's a pretty easy thing to do. Shame the C120 isn't as friendly.

Re: Best game(s) to introduce kids to arcade games

My kids (6 & 4) enjoy Ikaruga (they can just hold fire then move the stick around) Virtua Tennis 2 and Cosmic Smash. Super Mario Brother on the NES is also a favourite. SFII is quite good if they are playing each other, as they basically just mash buttons (a bit like my technique :awe:) and the game...

Moving out of my mum's house, cleared the loft and as I was coming down the lights went out. My mum had an old fuse board that had fuse wire & was always doing this.

Re: POLL: What are the hardware failures you will remember for your whole life?

Built a supergun into an ATX PSU a loooong time ago.
Extra button connection not working properly, so with power attached wiggled the connector and threw 240v AC down the JAMMA ground.
Large flash, house plunged into darkness, changed pants, bought a cab shortly afterwards.
