I'll draw it someday, but, in the meantime, all the connections you need to make are those reported in the github readme.

This is an awesome project! Thanks for sharing your code. I think I've got a teensy++ lying around I may use for this purpose!

Let me know if you find it, the teensy ++ has a slightly different pinout, so you might have to recompile it.

Took some time to get to Italy though...

Thanks, I'm trying to find a cheap way of getting this to work. It will not be as pretty as a JVS Pac but if I can get one working for 10-15€ I would be happy.

Is it with the Teensy 2 possible to emulate the JVS PC Card in the Type x1 or X2 or.... so that i can play JVS Games with a Standard PC directly on a JVS Cab? For example, when i start a X2 Game on a Standard PC with XP, there comes a error msg ((JVS error or JVS not found), cause the JVS PC Card is missing, with the JVSPAC i can only play these Games when i use the Typexlauncher.....It would also be nice if it is possible to play original Games on Original X1 or X2 Hardware with only a USB Joystick or Race Wheel connected...

JVSY works great!

This works on my nnc and even on my Vewlix F, i tried the JVSPAC V1.6 and the JVS Strike but the JVSY is the only Adapter which works with my Vewlix.

in the meantime i found a Little Problem with the jvsy..
when i turn on the Computer and the cab the jvsy not working, i have to unplug the usb cable from the Computer and reinsert it, then it works.
....i tried both combinations...Computer 1st on or cab 1st on..with the same result... is there a way to improve this within the hex file ?

Same with jvs PAC, its due to the io board initialization. If the jvs adapter is powered first then you need to reboot it.

Yup, the initialization code is a bit wonky. I'll fix that soon.
Glad someone found some use of JVSy :)

Is it ok to use sn75176bp instead of a sn75176b?

Let me know if you do. Also use the special version that dumps the analog inputs to serial, so that i can understand how that works and integrate it.
No one with lightguns? :eh:

Awasome and thank you for open your project.

I have two New Net City linked with naomi and system 256 board, if you want I can tested the link of two nodes if it is added.

Is it possible to remap joystick key by keyboard and change shortened else? (I already find in the code but I do not have the competence for this)

Because I already have a config on Hyperspin with JammaSD and everything is already configured with keyboards keys
