Model 2 to JAMMA harness

    • Bumping this thread because I have a few questions:

      I own two Model2 to JAMMA cable interfaces and neither of them seem like they will play well with my Supergun.

      Both of the harnesses seem to have setups to use external audio, and not the audio through a typical JAMMA connector, so I won't get any sound.

      My grave concern is regarding the controls. For Fighting Vipers and Sonic the Fighters, there are only 3 button inputs I need to worry about, not counting coin/service/start buttons.

      However, for other Model2 games, there can be up to 8 buttons. How would this be supported on a Supergun?

      Also, Would it be possible to create a PCB board with headers that would mount onto the filter board with a JAMMA extrusion so an extension cable could be used to plug into the Supergun? I'd very much like to design and produce boards like that if it would simply done in an EAGLE CAD program. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible. An extension cord would obviously have to be used though to connect to the JAMMA cabinet/supergun.

      which games use more than 3 buttons per player?

      more details on how you wired the ATX power supply to your system

      you take the ATX connector pinout:

      To force the ATX PSU on you need to hook "PS_ON#" to any of the "COM" (AKA Ground) pins.

      then you run the rest of the wires to the correct pins on the model 2 board power connectors:

      the hard part is the fact that there are only 5 +5V pins on the ATX connector and there are 15 +5V input pins on the Model 2 filter board. The filter board uses JST NH connectors which only support up to 22awg wire I believe. so what you'll want to do is crimp 2 22awg wires together on each 5V pin of the atx connector so that you have enough to fully populate the model 2 connectors. and then start tapping +5V pins on other connectors on the power supply, if there are CPU and GPU power connectors use those and failing that you can start using the 4-pin "molex" connectors.

    • you do not populate CN8, that's an output connector for additional hardware (hence why it has the line through it).

      you will also need +12V but it just 1 wire that goes directly to the cooling fan on the outside of the case.
