Made my harness yesterday. So I have neo to db25 and I wired 2 connectors for the other things I’m not using yet and seeing all this stuff makes me want to tidy it all up. So I ordered a small atx case so I can put the power supply, helper board and jvs board in there and I’ll mount ports for neo and figure out some other ports for the other things. I think having the case horizontal with the Naomi on top won’t be too obnoxious. Definitely better than PCBs and cables all over the place.
Wired up my prototype utility box, works great! I used cat5e for this. Just tested service and test buttons so far, I’m not sure what game uses button 7, but I figure can’t hurt to have it available along with the aux buttons in case I need them. Currently running Naomi net boot with the pi force web. My grail game on Naomi is ikargua so I rotated a tv, eventually it will go into a blast city cab. In the meantime I’ll play the shit out of this because it is all working.
thanks to everyone on this forum for helping me and making all this awesome stuff. I’ve learned a ton and had lots of fun working on this.
So now my issue is sound. Connected a little soundcraft mixer and some m-audio monitors and it definitely helps over the dynex tv speakers. The Naomi pushes audio hard, I had to dial gain way back. This soundcraft unit gives me 3 eq knobs, gain, and left/right balance. Fiddled with it a bit and huge improvement. I kind of want a sub though. In my music room I have an 18” monster sub and a very nice mixer, Allen and heath qu32, might try hooking this stuff up there for fun.
Possibly a really dumb question, but I've held off on one of these since I've been looking for some "real" guns on ebay for a while now, and not found any X/Y ones. However, these Aliexpress ones that seem to be for a PC running an emulator seem to fit the bill... Would these work with the S-JIHP?
It would be beyond awesome if I could build a gun setup that would work on my current cabs.
Yes and not, I have the Aliens Guns and they have an usb controller board which allow them to be connected to a regular PC.
But, nothing stops you from connect some wires from the pots to the JVS Helper, and you are ready to go.
