  • Does anyone have or know of anyone who has a remote for the Megalo410 rear projection setup? According to details on the cab it uses a Hitachi C4131S and googling reveals next to nothing except a few forum threads with no real info. Now i've got a 'one for all' JP1 remote which comes pre-programmed with tons of IR codes, 11 of which are for Hitachi (but these are aimed at consumer TVs). Having cycled through them all none have worked so its either another code I haven't tried or I have IR receiv…

    I'm curious actually if that fabric would actually be an improvement over the fresnel anyway. There is no mystery over the projector throw, this has already been done with a MW612ST or similar model all the specs are on projector central and likewise I just did it with a MX819ST. Be much easier with the MW model as optical zoom reduces the number of manual adjustment required.

    Possible to make a reproduction fresnel lens as a DIY'er? not a chance, I don't know where you would even buy one from. Why bother though, i've linked multiple times now to the guy who restored a super megalo using rear projection fabric. Specs and measurements? specs of what? As for size its a 41" 4:3 screen, just punch that into a calculator and it'll give you your dimensions, or perhaps measure one of the two cabs you own?

    Its the cab from post #28 (the one that isn't Virtua Tennis 2). It had a shattered mirror when I received it so I bought a mirror from hardware store and cut it to size. Still retains the fresnel lens, not sure what you mean by dimensions of projection, the Megolo 410 has a 41" screen in 4:3. I just manoeuvred the projector into position until the image filled the screen.

    Projector mounting not final hence image not being centred and properly sized but behold! System 256 on BenQ MX819ST. No optical zoom so more of a pain to position but half the price of the MW632ST. youtube.com/watch?v=UAx7VUf-LFc&feature=youtu.be

  • Quote from irepairsega: “Dip switch settings for force feedback strength are on DS bank 1 on the Drive Control Bd. All off = weak and all on = strong. Good luck finding a manual that shows this. Closest I could find was a Super GT manual showing it. ” Thanks for that info, yes the manuals are lacking. So is the control via dipswitches in addition to that offered in the test menu then?

  • As per title my Sega Rally 2 has weak force feedback, even when cranked all the way up to 15 (maximum) its still pretty weak. There are no faults on the drive board and it's fully functional in the test menu (just weak). I stripped the motor down for a clean and inspection and it seems fine, free to turn etc. There is no clutch like on Daytona USA it's just an AC motor so perhaps there is an issue with regards to voltage applied vs feedback setting? Information online is scarce to say the least …

  • All the cheap T10 led bulbs you see on ebay will just be a small SMD board with a resistor inside the plastic housing on one of the legs. You could either swap the resistor or the reduced brilliance (6V vs 12V) may not be an issue, have to wait and see.

    nah that's the Italian guy using the MW612ST. I was gonna message you saying I bought one but decided to hold off till I tested it otherwise its kinda moot and you'd only waste time looking into it. BenQ MX819ST, estimated delivery is 2 weeks from the US to Aus, eurgh. We'll see how it is when it turns up. What's also interesting is that my two megalo's actually have different mirror mounting arrangements. The gutted one I bought had a broken mirror, there was various shards of mirror inside it …

  • Are you set on incandescent bulbs? you could just put a T10 warm white LED in there for that warm glow from the coin slot

  • Someone on here (from South America I think) did a similar repair and it worked out ok, fingers crossed for you

    It is what is commonly known as the Blast City I/O board, so in terms of wiring and functionality the readily available blast city manual will have the wiring diagram (given the lack of megalo 410 documentation). I've gone with a cheaper short throw now only USD$200 with near enough the same brightness and contrast ratio. Only downside is that is has a fixed lens (hence it being much cheaper) but I don't see that being an issue just not as easy to setup. The Trapezoid mirror isn't a major issue …

    Only have the original rear projection setup in one cab the other was gutted and left to rot as is often the case. This thread documents a strip down of the cab pretty well forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=62384.0 looks like it uses the same speakers as the Blast City

    Not wanting to derail this thread but seeing that it is about the mighty Megalo 410 I just noticed both of mine have the VS kit installed, was that a standard feature? Also have some weird aluminium overlay. On one cab its on the inlay panel, on the other its on the control panel. eMkscad.jpg FJpQH71.jpg The cabs themselves oT5CzJz.jpg 4eDckwv.jpg

    Quote from OsirusANZ: “Quote from djsheep: “Paging @OsirusANZ who recently pimped one of these out. ” Haha yeah we spoke over Facebook when they picked them up. The 36in monitor I have in mine has seemed to disappear lucky I bought it when I did. ” Any pics?

    Yeap that's my mistake I was planning to use MW632ST but its neither here nor there, the MW621ST went out of production nearly 7 years ago, the 632 replaced it and is still the current model hence better availability. The mirror bolts to the frame, rotate it so the mirror is facing the front of the cab and the brackets on each corner line up with holes in the frame. The italian guys setup is nothing unique as such, that's the exact principle on how the original worked, he just removed all the tu…

    Just more info for reference to put in the thread. I linked this on facebook but here it is again, half way down this thread ukvac.com/forum/sega-megalo-wi…creen-50_topic365313.html the guy made his own rear projection screen using proper fabric (had no fresnel lens). Also the Megalo410 video on youtube with the BenQ MW632ST, the build thread for that is here arcadeitalia.net/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=22833Let you'll need to signup to see the images

    Yeah that's fair enough, cost should always be a factor in any project I suppose you just need to determine your budget and desired outcome. For me personally the main draw of the megalo 410 is the fact it has a massive 4:3 screen. Sorting the projection screen wouldn't be that difficult it sounds more daunting than it is, you could literally make a frame with some thin timber, or even better thin aluminium/steel, thinner the better to maximise screen size. The most expensive part of all of it w…
