    Axun Workshop - JVS / JAMMA Control-Box(CBOX) SuperGun

    Resume sales? I hope you also mean fulfilling orders, because I haven't had so much as a tracking number sent for my order from May 29th. We're approaching Kickstarter wait times here. I still trust Axun more than Kickstarter as people have actually gotten their stuff, so I can't help but...

    Arcade Stick Refurb Log

    I think I did pretty much the same microswitch-swapping mod with my Hori Tekken Tag stick, only I chose not to solder back to the PCB (I think that was the problem in the first place): https://twitter.com/triple_lei/status/1352054179871694848 Been using the stick for shmups, which never use a...

    Home Arcade System

    Well, Mike's a good guy and I'm sure he gets enough requests as it is, let alone about stuff he probably doesn't personally have. I think I'll wait until he implements custom modes for PSP and GB Interface first before piling on. :saint: Otherwise, yes, when my arcade PCBs worked with the RT5X...

    Home Arcade System

    And I'm trying to talk him out of using the 5X. Also when I used the RetroTink 5X with my arcade PCBs, it was real picky with what kind of sync it needed from the HAS. I didn't used to bother with it, but with the 5X I had to for the first time ever. I'd either get no picture, or a picture...

    Home Arcade System

    I'd just use the SCART cable, but I much prefer the HD15 adapter. I got an extra thick SCART cable from Retro Access and the cable's so heavy it likes to unplug itself ever so slightly; just enough that it causes problems with the audio and video. To get the HD15 from the HAS to work at all...

    Namco System 256 PlayStation Controller adapters for sale!!! NOW Available!!!

    Took me a LONG time to finally test these, but here's a vid to make up for it: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=160bVl37Guk I should note that the HRAP I'm using is the very first model, which for some reason isn't compatible with my Arthrimus PlayStation to DB15 adapter, even though...

    UD-USB Decoders

    Cool anecdote I didn't know where to put: Recently I got a Pac-Man multi-kit, and to get to the options menu you have to hold Player 1 Start upon bootup. My dedicated 4-way stick (Sanwa JLF, short shaft, Kowal oversized actuator, 2 lb. spring) uses a Brook Universal Fighting Board, and to get...

    Home Arcade System

    Is it bad that those terminals aren't covered by anything? I like the more accessible dial for adjusting the 5V (I really dislike using a thin plastic tool and feeling around for a notch to turn on my Mean Well MWP-606), but I don't want to accidentally kill myself just blindly reaching for it...

    Tekken 5.1 namco system 256 version a

    My experience: Bought Tekken 5.1 just as a nice-to-have, with no dongle or System 256. Disc says TE52 DVD0B. Bought System 256 with Tekken 5 (5.0 that is) and dongle. Disc says TE51 DVD0. Dongle says TE52, Ver.B Tried out my Tekken 5 and all my characters were unlocked. Tried out my Tekken 5.1...

    Namco 256 build issues

    I remember when I bought my Soulcalibur 3 on eBay, the Hong Kong-based seller asked me if I wanted English or Japanese voices, and I chose Japanese without a second thought. I just wanted to be consistent, since Soulcalibur on the Dreamcast only had Japanese voices. And going back even further...

    Namco 256 build issues

    I still want to swap my English SC2 for a Japanese version of SC2 to match my Japanese SC3. View: https://youtu.be/VMRg0nWv1IQ And anyway, my game says Ver. D but my dongle says Ver. A. Not sure what that means for what I want, though...

    Tekken 4 arcade unlock all characters

    I also got a Tekken 4 Version D. Pretty sure the D was written on the dongle with a marker. No locked characters for me! Now, I just hope it doesn't take 10 weeks to unlock the old Tekken 5 stages in Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection. If the other Tekken time-release unlockables are anything like in...

    Namco 256 build issues

    If no buttons work except Start, maybe check your wiring? I did a "retro-style" arcade stick build from Allfightsticks recently and I actually had to look up how to wire up American-style buttons. (Why are there three prongs when we only need two? Jeez!) And FWIW, I connect my 256 this way...

    Namco 256 build issues

    I dunno about a fix, but I how about a trade? I got: - A Namco System 246B that works, although the picture seems noisier than my 246C - Soul Calibur 2 (English) with both dongles - A Namco I/O board with harness, if you really really need it (I also tested the 246B with another Namco I/O and...

    I can't even imagine why the originals were 12 feet to begin with. Wrapped around the cabinet once for good luck?

    What's wrong with my Final Fight board? (or, "Help me fix my Final fight board!")

    So after a bunch of swapping, I was able to get my Final Fight to boot into test mode with the original A/B/C setup it came with. Turns out the dip switches are finicky. Like, they're too sensitive... or not sensitive enough. Like pushing the switches further in the direction they're already in...

    What's wrong with my Final Fight board? (or, "Help me fix my Final fight board!")

    Good to know, but at least I got an A board out of it. I knew at least that much going in from the listing: Arcade Original CPS Circuit Board The board 89626A-4 PCB and oscillator 12mhz Game EP-rom is a Reproduction Why does it have to be a mod at all? Couldn't they just use the US version...

    What's wrong with my Final Fight board? (or, "Help me fix my Final fight board!")

    Yesterday I received some immaculately packed arcade PCBs from Hong Kong, one of them being Final Fight. Great seller, no complaints. So I when I hooked it all up, I noticed that there was no sound for the opening sequence no matter what I set the dip switch to. And the "winners don't use drugs"...
