monkey ball with a world series baseball panel ? - WORKING

Post by codecrank » March 9th, 2012, 4:14 pm

I built an analog loom from a sega jamma i/o in order to the play world series baseball on my blast, using the pinout from the analog splitter loom and the CN7 pinout. Works great !

Code: Select all

10 pin AMP UP Female       26 Pin JST RA Female  
 
01=AChannel0               03       
02=AChannel1               09
03=AChannel2               15  
05=AChannel4               04
06=AChannel5               10
07=AChannel6               16
09=AVCC                    01 
10=GND                     05
Now , I would like to use the P1 analog stick to play monkey ball as well. It doesn't seem to work. When I go to test mode, game settings, input test , I see the H and V numbers move through consistent ranges of values as I move the stick. But when I try to play the game, it's not moving the monkey, or doing anything at the player/difficulty selection menu. :(

I know that it can be done with a zombie's revenge panel. ( http://www.sega-naomi.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3740" ) . In this post , goat boy used an adapter to swap VCC and Ground. I tried to do that ( swap pin 9&10 on the AMP UP ) It does reverse how the value changes in the input test menu, but it still doesn't actually work in the game.

I tried to locate a Monkey Ball manual online to find out what parts and pinout it was using, but nobody ever scanned one and posted it online...

Does anyone have any clue what I'm missing here ??

Thanks !

I just figured it out. DOH ! you have to calibrate and save in the game's test menu... works like a charm now.

oh and like the ZR panel, you have to swap ground and VCC or the directions are inverted.

It may be a stupid question, but do you absolutely need a ZR or an official MB panel to play the game ?
Is it possible to use a generic analogic stick, like for example the Seimitsu LS-64 or do I absolutely need Sega official parts ?

Thanks. :?

Still hoping you can post this, as I'm trying to build my own cable for a Sega (seimitsu) analog joystick.

ooops, completely forgot to reply... sorry mate. I'm sure you figured it out by now but anyhow:

01=AChannel0 = player 1 joystick X
02=AChannel1 = player 1 joystick Y
