    NAC Splitfire: JAMMA streaming solution

    It took me a while, but I finally made a case that sorta works. I used the sides of the JAMMA connector as the mounting point for a few reasons, but mainly because I didn't have any other choice. I like that it has the added benefit of reinforcing the infamously fragile sides of the Hirose...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    I made some adjustments here and there, but the case is pretty much done. You will need some fasteners (Four M3x16 bolts, eight M3 heat threaded inserts) to put this together. Small bonus, you can see my crappy solution for a Splitfire enclosure that I spent too much time on. Ignore the...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    Afaik rotation only works in digital/higher resolutions and you need to manually rotate your screen. Whenever I had my analog IO board attached and dual output a game, it would rotate on HDMI correctly, but stay put on VGA to my BVM. The output resolution would need to be downscaled to fit and...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    Test fit went well. I'll probably make a adjustment to the bottom of the case where the JAMMA edge is for slightly better clearance. I decided to skip a fan solution since I can just mount one on the DE-10 Nano directly using the existing screw posts and a printed adapter, or use one of those...

    NAC Splitfire: JAMMA streaming solution

    If any more changes happen, esp with PCB size changes, would it be possible to include thru holes some day? I've made mild attempts in creating a enclosure for the Splitfire and it's been challenging to come up with something without mounting points on the PCB.

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    I'm sure there's better ways of approaching this (I'm no designer of cases that's for sure... I do normally buildings for a living), but here's a quick and dirty implementation of a 3D printed case. It'll fasten together via M3 bolts and heat threaded inserts, aka crap that's in my parts bin...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    I'll be interested to see if this particular cable works. I had a right angled USB adapter on hand (pretty much the same as what you showed before) that I tried, and it wasn't quite what I wanted. I think the down facing right angle should work, but the size of the head + strain relief makes me...

    Technically... Yes. It's the GBA version that I loaded up as a dumb joke

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    To update on this, the 5V on my Blast PSU was set way too high (I should've rechecked this after I had the unit recapped!), which caused the power issues. After adjusting this, the Jamma Expander and MiSTer both fired right up! Now I can finally play the best version of Alpha 3 in the way it was...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly what happened (I was in a rush due to limited time), but I recall both LEDs for JAMMA power being lit, and the DE10 flickering briefly, but failing to power on. I will be more in depth on Friday (gah the wait is gonna kill me) when I finally have time to...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    Mine came in as well today, that was quick! I briefly tested it out and seemed to run into an issue where my MiSTer doesn't seem to turn on, in my cab, although the JAMMA Expander lights up. It may be because I bought a fully preconfigured MiSTer with addon boards, although I removed them and...

    Monkey Ball Panel Reproduction

    Resin printing would help for surface finish, but at ~170mm for the banana, you would need a larger printer like an Elegoo Saturn or Phrozen Sonic Mighty to fit. Also, there might be some trial and error regarding warping and shrinkage. At least in my experience, small details in a model resolve...

    Hopefully I posted my interest on buying one soon enough!

    Ideal PC cases for Arcade PCs

    Let me know how it goes once you have the PC built! I after considering a few options for a arcade PC myself, I ended up going with an Asrock Deskmini X300 build, since I bought that barebones setup on a whim during last Black Friday. It's the most modern thing I can think of that that still...

    Ideal PC cases for Arcade PCs

    If the In Win BK644 works, then maybe BK623 is suitable as well. It seems to be a identical case besides the front panel, and is in stock on Newegg. https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16811108115?Item=N82E16811108115 It's unusually narrow as a case, so I would double check whatever GPU or other PCI...

    Ideal PC cases for Arcade PCs

    How durable does the PC need to be if it spends most of it's time sitting in a cab? If you don't need it to be totally enclosed, I would consider just creating a case from scratch via 3D printing or laser cutting. That way you can have better control over sizing and where stuff like port...

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    Mainly posting to also watch the thread. I'm looking forward the release, will it be directly purchasable on your store website, or do I need to be on a waiting list?

    NON-CRT Displays that support 15KHz and 25KHz resolutions

    I see people make this mistake all the time, but the 1ms on the Asus monitor you're referring to is not the input lag of the monitor, it's the estimated time it takes for a pixel to change color (grey to grey). It's a largely meaningless marketing stat (a similar marketing stat would be LCD...

    Positive feedback for Thchardcore

    I purchased the XRGB Mini from Thchardcore and it was a great experience. He was quick to respond, and thorough with updates in terms of when the item shipped. Would gladly purchase from again.

    FS: A few candy cabs up for sale

    Sadly I'm too far from you to consider the larger items, but I'm still interested in the MBAACC that we talked about a while back, as well as some FastIOs if you happen to have them. I'll shoot you a PM in a week or so to see if you still have those things available.
