    DSB Clone (Digital Sound Board SEGA)

    Mine arrived two days ago, promptly, though there was quite a customs delay with my postal service. It is 100% a plug and play replacement for the original sound board as the connectors are the same, and the hassle of changing out individual sound boards when swapping another DSB-compliant game...

    (FOUND!) ISO: Naomi 2 Wild Riders Cart and/or Full Motherboard

    Hi folks, I'd be looking for a Naomi 2 motherboard and JVS I/O with the Wild Riders cartridge or just the cartridge itself and give you a reasonable offer. There are no carts of the game on eBay currently. I have a setup of Harley-Davidson controls that would be ideal to use the game with by...

    Model 3 Racing games ..swapable?

    I only have boards and hacked console wheels (very labor-intensive hobby but super rewarding) to play these, but Super GT/Scud Race uses the DSB1 sound board used in Model 1s and earlier Model 2C stuff like Touring Cars. I just sold both my DSB1 and 2 boards to Japan in favor of Rom1's DSB Clone...

    Sega model 2 to tri sync monitor?

    I believe you can make an adapter that goes from a 5-pin JST NH connector (I have no knowledge of the pinout for original Model 2) and then just wire that to a DSUB-15 breakout or connector with R, G, B, Sync and GND. I've got a Nanao FlexScan 8060S (super old, from the late '80s) that works...

    Potentiometers...

    Yeah, there was some burnt plasticky smell inside the wheel after a while. I bought another one to test, but it's really an easier mod compared to the rest of the wheels I've cracked. I had a similar incident with a pot in a Thrustmaster NASCAR Charger (old PC gameport) catch fire while I had...

    Potentiometers...

    Bump, but since I randomly stumbled upon this thread a while back, I'd like to contribute a few stories about my discoveries with pots and racing wheels: I recently found this Thrustmaster Ferrari Challenge 2 wheel for Nintendo Gamecube. Took it apart, and was able to rewire the buttons and the...

    WTB: Sega Model 3 Step 1.0 CPU Board

    Hi everyone, I have a Virtua Fighter 3 stack that has a faulty CPU board. The JAMMA adapter it came with does not support 3.3v so it's possible the previous owner overvolted it thinking cranking the voltage would fix things. Therefore, if you have a spare M3 from a Sega Bass Fishing or VF3...

    Sega Rally Upright Up-Down Shifter

    Well, after watching tutorials on through-hole soldering, I decided to try my hands at making my own repro board after buying a few of them in bulk, and while my first attempt was janky with a possible bridge underneath, I was a lot more careful on my next one! It works great, though there is...

    Modding Thrustmaster T80 (Ferrari 488 GTB Edition) for Crazy Taxi and Jambo Safari

    Bump but that's a pretty awesome mod, man. Have you got the paddle shifters on the back working since? I have a vintage Thrustmaster NASCAR Sprint (Gameport) I rewired to use on Model 3 and PC via an Ultimarc A-PAC. It's my absolute favorite wheel that I have modded as it has a table clamp...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    Looks those are AMP UP connectors. They're used on a lot of Sega cabinets. They snap in place with a momentary lock. You could also try finding harnesses from other Sega games that use the same connector and solder them on, which I've done in the past, or crimp them with a Hozan crimper like I...

    Sega Model 3 Step 2.1 Daytona USA 2 PE "Backup Ram Unreadable Halted" Error

    Last year I bought a Daytona 2 full stack from Pennsylvania, and when I powered it on after placing the security chip, it would boot with this error every few cycles. I popped a Harley-Davidson ROM board in that partly worked but froze when scores displayed. I had sent the CPU board out for...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    So, on Harley-Davidson & LA Riders I have tried only using the Rear Brake Pedal control (pin 9 on CN1) which helps you drift in the game, but when I do leave the front brake disconnected, the rear brake begins to go full-on in the game when I twist the throttle. All pot-based Model 2/3 games do...

    Sega Rally Upright Up-Down Shifter

    Nice!! I am SOOOO jealous!! I sent my shifter board to Ken in February but waiting to hear back; he's probably backlogged to heck. If only I had the skills to rebuild the repro board. But great it actually works. I will make MY own video of it in action and a modified racing wheel on YouTube...

    PC/console controls that can be modded to work with arcade games via S-JIHP

    I've also come to realize all of the 3rd party Playstation wheels are very hard to mod because the buttons are not isolated and instead all on one motherboard, running directly to a black blob chip, so you will need to cut traces with a box cutter or an exacto knife. So they are absolutely not...

    [WTB] Sega Model 3 soundboard (DSB2) for Spikeout FE

    Scud Race used the DSB1 sound hardware. I do have a DSB2 from a Sega Rally 2 cab but I swapped it with Daytona 2 ROMs; however when I track down SpikeOut, I myself would be after another DSB2. @tsangpopohk - IDK if this site ships to Hong Kong, but I have seen fairly priced DSB2 boards on...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    I just received my Gun I/O Board yesterday, and I can attest to what you just said. The ROM Board seems to be working perfectly fine, however with my Light Phaser, I couldn't get it to calibrate properly. It displayed a frozen shot on the gun tracking menu on my Nanao 8060S monitor, and the...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    As I just got my Virtua Cop 2 ROM Board from Connecticut last week, it will not boot on the Model 2A system by itself. It displays what looks like garbled graphics, like the one shown in someone's eBay photo below. Is it true that the game will not boot without the Type-I Gun I/O Board, likewise...

    Partially SOLD: Modified Racing Wheels to DB15/Arcade (Breakout Required)

    Hi there! I apologize if this isn't wholly arcade parts but it is console controls I hacked with arcade in mind. I have two racing wheels lying around that I modified for use on my Sega driving arcade boards that I no longer need. They are taking up space in my bedroom so these would be...

    Bought my first Model 2 board and I have no idea what I'm doing! Please help!

    Yeah, I messed around with the dials and it stretches up to a certain amount. Definitely a non-standard resolution. And yes, FV2 is fantastic!! I have no doubt that VC2 and HOD will work with the gun IO hooked. Just more worried about the screen size when aiming for Justice Shots and headshots.
