Easiest way to play Dreamcast on JVS?

I have a Naomi which I'd like to play my Dreamcast on - what is the simplest way without butchering the cab's wiring?

Thanks

Cable ID

Anyone know what this is - it came with my Naomi cab and the small plug looks suspiciously like a dreamcast controller connector.

Maybe an analog connector? I have 2.

Re: Monitor Swap - help needed :)

It all depends if the monitor is already in a frame with the chassis attached. If it is, it's easy peasy.

Otherwise - ALWAYS discharge it. Twice even, with a few minutes in between - just to be safe.

Is the remote board laying on a metal surface causing a short circuit?

Re: gulp. . . . . arcade vga

With some arcade vga cards you need to use the digital out (the square connector) on a vga monitor - the normal vga out on the cared is just for low res arcade monitors.

I hooked up my netbook to my Naomi with just a vga cable. You don't need as special video card to do this.

Re: Kontrol Panel

I personally hate the MK games, but that cp really rocks!

Could you not use the clear seimitsu start buttons with the cp picture parts under the button tops? You'd get a bit more of the logo back...

Re: Highest Quality/Best Candy Cab?

I tate monitors one handed :lol: On a slightly more serious note - My Pony II 28's are pretty good - they only have Hanty monitors in them (not orig I bet!, nor brilliant) but the tate mech is awesome. You could (nearly) tate them one handed. Apart from the fact that I have a hori and a vert, though...

Re: swapping sanwa 29e31s for nanao ms9

It's a standard Naomi frame and I don't know exactly what model of ms9 it is.

Maybe it's a different model to the norm?

I'll post some pics tonight....

Re: swapping sanwa 29e31s for nanao ms9

That's odd!
I have the correct grey Naomi bezel now and there is a 10mm gap in between screen and bezel. The back monitor box fouls on the monitor cage too. Were you fitting the nanao with a Sanwa bezel by any chance?

I made some cheeky spacers a minute ago anyway!

Re: swapping sanwa 29e31s for nanao ms9

Franco - I made up some 3mm spacers and they are 10mm too small. I reckon you may have got the sizes of the pfx and ms9 mixed up?

No worries, though - I'll just remake some tomorrow.

The monitor is awesome though! Excellent colours and I managed to get the geometry nigh on perfect :awe:

Nanao ms9 degauss

I have now fitted the ms9 to my Naomi and it looks great. Only thing is a tiny bit of degauss needing doing. I sorted it temporarily with a degaussing wand, as I am not sure how the wiring works on the amp plug. The red and black set of stripey wires were (I think) for a degauss button on the sanwa ...

Re: swapping sanwa 29e31s for nanao ms9

I've just tried the ms9 chassis with the sanwa tube and it does seem to work, but with a lot of crackling noise at the back.

I'm just not going to risk it. :shock:

I'll make up some new plastic bushes for the correct tube tomorrow at work and put in the correct tube.

Excellent - thanks for all the infos chaps.

I am getting the bezel tomorrow, and if I need to make some more bushes, what length are they mr.Franco?

Re: swapping sanwa 29e31s for nanao ms9

Arses! I've just put the tube in and the monitor surround hits on it. I'm thinking that I could mount the tube BEHIND the mounting bracket? This isn't going well. :( EDIT- Harumph! I've taken the damn thing out and put the old one back in. I just need to sort out the width issues with it as they are...
