Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

This project has come a long way and I've now purchased a Japanese Time Crisis cabinet the other day :) (it's been in my want list for a VERY LONG time... now it's just daytona left to get!) https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180822/ccc7eae2f99fc177630d59f911c2d9d4.jpg Unfortunately the cab game isn...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

The first thing you want to do is to check if your coin mech is powered on. If your coin mech is not powered on, it will reject everything. You will hear a loud BEEP when it is powered. Hahahaha! I guess that's been my issue. I don't power the unit. The moment you mentioned it needed to be powered ...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

Hi guys, another Chewlix owner here. I have a TypeX2 in it, and have it working with the same coin mech it came from. Not sure if you need any help Kavas, cause it is not the same as a PC, but anything you need, let me know. Like Kavas, I could never get mine to work. I think I'm missing parts sinc...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

Thanks for the series of posts!! I love reading them! I'm wanting to do something very similar as your PC setup. However, mine is all enclosed in a small form factor pc (sandy bridge i7, 8gb, gtx 1050 low profile). To be honest though, I've barely touched my HD setup as I've been taken over with the...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

How are the quality of these cabs found from alibaba? I'm working up a new place in Toronto and I've had Vewlix cabs fabricated as single player setups (24" BenQ RL screens). They were great but I really disliked how they were painted, the paint was very light which you could see the wood grain. Th...

Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

Played a quick game of Crisis Zone. Didn't realise how hard this game is compared to Time Crisis! Obviously the difference here is all about the rapid fire! Whilst it's nowhere near the machine gun from the arcades, I will say this game is by far the most popular when people come over :) https://www...

Cleaned up the gun.. Unfortunately it didn't get rid of the discolouration http://i.imgur.com/AVwX0W2l.jpg Also cleaned up the solenoid by soaking it in degreaser. http://i.imgur.com/dcN6MdJl.jpg Problem I had was it was soaked overnight and as a result it corroded.

Interference be gone!!! CzCelx5lRnA So different from when I first made the mod.

Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

Last "progress" post of the Namco project... all the circuitry is now complete! (although if I press the trigger too fast on single shot mode, it fails to engage the recoil and causes it to misfire) Switching between the two seems to work https://www.hasntfiguredouthowtoembedyoutubeproperly.com/watc...

Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

How do you have that connected to your Astro? I spent a while trying to get guncon2s to work nicely on an E2 via a JammASD - which includes an RCA port for this purpose. It worked but it was jumpy like your video. I have no idea what the problem was. I gave up. It may well have been something simpl...

Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

Yes, there is a little interference in the optical sensor. I'm yet to figure out where this interference is coming from. I've been told I may possibly need a diode in between the sensor wire.. I'm not too fussed about it yet since my initial goal was to get the gun driver to work along with the pcb....

Re: PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

What a difference a few days makes! When I first posted, I couldn't even get the gun to work with the guncon2 pcb, I then had challenges making the solenoid to work. Fast forward a few days, I now have built the gun driver as per syntax's schematic and I have a rapid fire capable Namco gun with reco...

PS2 Guncon2 PCB to Original Namco Arcade Gun mod

Has anyone here by any chance modded their Namco arcade gun to work with a guncon2 for ps2? I would love a time crisis cab or a point blank cab, but unfortunately, I just don't have the room or can afford one at present. The next best thing is to mod my astro city to play ps2 namco light gun games! ...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

The only thing I can't pin down is exactly how much shipping door to door would be. This is hard to say because every country and freight company will be different. I have gotten a quote or two the puts shipping in the $700 USD range door to door, which I'm willing to pay, but I have been unable to...

Re: Troubleshooting non powering astro. Newbie needs help!

I would change the fuse anyway tbh. I had the same scenario where it "looked" like it hadn't blown, the moment I changed it, BOOM! Power! :) The Syncro box looks like possibly a similar device to a sync strike or something. Does it have any inputs like VGA? Are there any visible switches? The cables...

Re: Troubleshooting non powering astro. Newbie needs help!

There's a fuse inside the psu.

Not sure which astro city you have, but on my original astro city, there's a fuse on the bottom right of the psu (if looking at the switches as the front)

Also depending if the back plate has been modified or not, there could also be a fuse there too.

Re: Troubleshooting non powering astro. Newbie needs help!

Replacing all fuses would be the very first thing I'd do.

Do you have any other cabs to test if the PSU is dead?
