Re: mario kart gp2 buttoms

Think cancel is player 1 button 8 or 9 but won't find it on sega jvs io as it doesn't map that far.

Re: Naomi 2 Repair?

Naomi2 are more prone to dying in shipping. Bga faults, amount of times those heat sink pull at the bga chips.

Hikaru is the worst offender.

Re: rhythm paradise naomi machine

Don't expect a net boot version of this, you will need to find original cartridge, it's just not compatible with dimm boards.

Re: Open source JVS I/O to pc interface (WIP: Analog, Lightgun)

@stickcross yes, it's possible to map keys instead of joystick buttons, as a matter of fact i used them in the first, unpublished, version of JVSy.

The cf box firm gd-rom disc updates net dimm boards to 4.01 and supports gd-rom, cf and net boot.

Also games like vf4 ft work fine as it has all firm 3.x commands
