Re: Monitor anode crackles

If its not fixable & the tube is OK - I might be interested as the Minicute uses an 18" monitor.

Penrhos's Idiots guide to chopping Naomi's

OK the loss of KC lost my Naomi leg chopping tutorial so here's a new one.

The Short NC / NNC style naomi is basically the same as a normal UNI panel wise - it Just has shorter legs - They are shorter by the length of the coin tube.

Re: Has anybody stripped Naomi uni leg covers?

I used Nitromers, fine wire wool & then sprayed 3 coats of clear car acrylic laquer over them - look minty - just got to get some Netcity leg stickers.

Re: WG U5000 - any use?

Unlikely, He insists they're worth £300 - but the tube is an "A68AGD01X" so they are 29" and should be a straight swap for either cab, pity the chassis has got a poor reputation for reliability.

Re: WG U5000 - any use?

The tube has terrible burn-in on both machines and one has crap convergence too. Both chassis are fine. I have a 29" VGA presentation monitor with a knackered chassis thats an exact fit in the Egret I might email jomac with the spec & yoke readings. He wants £150 inc VAT for them and they are NOS st...

WG U5000 - any use?

Probably one for grantspain but... I have two cabs both with knackered monitors. 1) Egret-II 2) Naomi universal There's someone selling NOS WG U5000's which he says are 27" but looking at the spec sheet look like the UK 29" size. The schematic has a jumper for 15/24Khz so would be Ideal for the Egre...

Re: Is there a Supergun that outputs component?

I don't know of any - however I do have a JAMMA -> VGA upscaler that works quite well for most PCB's (not the funny sync ones).

I can run my PANA on my PC monitor or using VGA in on my LCD tv as I was having wierd sync issues running JAMMA boards via RGB scart.

Re: Sigma AV7000 composite video problem

I've seen that fault before - I'll have to do some digging, can't rember exactly Voltage levels & sync on green ring a bell - I'd use svideo anyway - much better picture quality.

Re: Patching Japanese games

I assume you mean the game for Naomi arcade system GDL-0028 Melty blood Act cadenza To run it you would need a naomi-1 GDrom system with a Japanese BIOS fitted to the Naomi-1 motherboard (its socketed). Your probably looking at £50 for the game disk & dongle for version A and £100-150 for version B ...

Pana twin/Pana custom manual

If anyone needs a copy of this I have a scan that I passed through google translate but I think the pictures explain most of it.

Pana Custom pinouts etc are the same - but it doesn't have the extra Mahjong buttons & is a little smaller.
