    Button layout help

    I'm wiring my JAMMA cab up for CPS2 with 6 buttons per player, and I can't find a good reference for button layout for the 6 buttons. Is it this? 1 2 3 4 5 6 Or this? 1 3 5 2 4 6 Or something else? Given that it's called a "kick" harness, I was thinking the buttons from the extra header...

    RESOLVED: CPS2 Multi Troubleshooting

    I received a CPS2 and multi-kit today from another forum member. The CPS2 was Marvel Superheroes. It had no battery and did nothing when I plugged it into one of my cabs. I installed the kit. It has an F Pal and I installed a wire from the pin on it to the one on the multi. I also installed...

    WTT: MEGA JVS - Custom JVS I/O for ?

    I have the parts on hand to make up several complete MEGA JVS boards, and I figure rather than sell them, I'd see what people would be willing to trade for one (or more). I'd be open to multiple MEGA JVS boards traded for something else, too. Some things I'm interested in: PGM Motherboard...

    WTB or borrow: Mario Kart Arcade GP Camera PCB

    I'm interested in borrowing or buying a camera PCB for Mario Kart Arcade GP1 or 2. I haven't been able to find a source for a known working PCB, so am going to go ahead and put this out there. My goal is to figure out how these work and create an alternative that others can use. Any help is...

    3D Printed Connectors and Housings

    I'm working on some wiring adapters so that my WMMT cabinets can wire into my MEGA JVS (Based on Sega Type 1 I/O connectors) and I ran into the need for random connectors/housings like I always do. It prompts me to spend way more than I need to on some housings and crimp pins. I have a ton of...

    3D Printed Chihiro Foot

    Here is my attempt at modelling a replacement Chihiro foot. The geometry in these feet is kind of tricky, so it's not exact. My first attempt printed really well, but there were some slight fitment issues that I'm hoping are now resolved. I'll share the file if it proves to be successful.

    Games that reassign ip address after netbooting

    I'm working my way towards building a Raspberry Pi based server to handle netbooting for my 3 driving cabs. I haven't attempted netbooting multi-player games yet, but I notice that some games reassign the IP address after the game loads. I would imagine that this could cause an issue with...

    Type 3 Chihiro - Failing to boot consistently/freezing

    One of my 4 Chihiros is having issues where it won't boot consistently, and when I can get it to boot, it often freezes within a few minutes. It's never FRAGing (flashing red and green), and the green LED seems to indicate that it is booting, but often there is no sound and either there's no...

    Mario Kart in Maximum Tune Cab

    I don't think I've ever read first-hand experience with this, but I can confirm definitively that Mario Kart Arcade GP 1-2 will work in a stock Maximum Tune cab with working force feedback. There is a bank of 4 dip switches on the force feedback board and switch 4 needs to be changed to OFF for...

    Chihiro: Frustrating Issue - Easy Repair

    My recent acquisition of a pair of Maximum Tune cabs came with Chihiros. GD-ROM works and boots Maximum Tune fine, but I want to netboot Maximum Tune 2 and other games. Yesterday on the first one to make it to my basement, I successfully updated the firmware and got it to netboot Maximum Tune...

    No Cabinet Volume Control in Maximum Tune?

    Maximum Tune apparently doesn't have cabinet volume control... :S Having just acquired a pair of Maximum Tune cabs, I'm going through the grueling process of disassembling them as much as possible and moving them into my basement. I just got to the point of getting the major parts assembled...

    Initial D single vs pair question

    I was at a local arcade expo last weekend and someone brought an Initial D pair and had it listed for sale. Wanting to see if the seller would break up the pair and just sell me one, I texted him to ask. He replied back that it wouldn't work as a single and the game requires to be linked to...

    Filterboard DIP settings for video modes - Chihiro, Triforce, NAOMI 1/2

    Are the filterboard DIP options for video modes documented anywhere for these each of these systems? I notice that on my OR2SP VGA CRT monitor that the Chihiro comes through with a larger image than my NAOMI 2. So if I adjust the monitor to fit the Chihiro image, the NAOMI 2 comes on with...

    How do I get the cigarette smell out?

    I received a shifter for OR2/ID3 from ebay and it reeks of cigarettes. I've never had this problem. Anyone run into this issue before and have a sure-fire remedy? The seller followed up telling me he has other parts and wonders if I want anything else. Not if they smell like this... I honestly...

    (SOLVED)Mario Kart Arcade GP 2: 99 credits hacked in by default?

    Any version of Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 that I've found and load up on the Triforce appears to have 99 credits hacked in by default. I think this was done for emulation purposes or for playing it on the Wii. Anyone know of a version that does not do this? I would prefer to have to manually...

    F-ZERO AX - Force Feedback Question

    F-ZERO AX uses the same FFB system as OR2 and the Initial D 1-3 games, as well as a couple of others. I have a question about the expected behavior from FFB on F-ZERO AX. I've got FZ booting in my OR2 cab, and FFB works, but I noticed that all that's really happening is the wheel is...

    Playing linked games online?

    On Chihiro and Triforce, all linking communication is done over a network switch in the stock configurations, right? Maybe Lindbergh is the same way? Would it be possible to set up some kind of private server that would allow us to play multiplayer online? I remember back in the XBOX days...

    [FIXED] Netbooting Mario Kart GP 1 and 2: Freezing at Device Check

    I just got my Triforce Type 3 working today. I can netboot either Mario Kart and get into the test menu to change settings, but whenever the game actually boots it freezes at the Device Check right at the beginning. I updated the firmware to the latest Darksoft release in case it helped, but...

    [FIXED] Type 3 Triforce Troubleshooting: No Audio/Video

    I have a Type 3 Triforce that doesn't show have any audio or video when powered on. It's a GD-ROM type, with a network board. I received it in this condition, so have no history to give of when it was last working, etc. I've taken most of it apart and inspected and reseated connectors, but...

    Netboot SRAM backup/restore - AKA Save High Scores and Settings!

    According to the post here, the tools for backing up and restoring SRAM are at our fingertips: Let's figure this out. MetalliC has generously shared the address range for NAOMI games. I'm curious to know if the same applies to Chihiro and Triforce. I'm also curious to know, lacking specific...
