    MiSTerAddons MiSTercade - MiSTer for JAMMA cabinets

    It's weird. I fired my Astro City up with the Mistercade last night and it worked fine. Got through DoDonPachi twice, played a few other games, and then did a cold reboot on MiSTer from the UI. That's when the controls didn't come back.

    MiSTerAddons MiSTercade - MiSTer for JAMMA cabinets

    Hey all - have a weird issue with my MiSTercade in an Astro City. I installed it two nights ago and everything was great and worked fine. This morning I turn on my cab and I can't get any controls to respond at the main menu. P1, P2 side, nothing does anything. I've tried leaving the cab on and...

    MiSTer FPGA

    I wonder if it wasn't something to do with the specific hdmi/vga converters I have then? On my NNC I feel like an IO board is producing better colors. On my direct video I always felt like my trisync was slightly dim in the whites and just not as vibrant. Swapping over to an IO board and the...

    MiSTer FPGA

    Installed my mistercade in my Astro City finally and was able to replace a hdmi -> vga converter as well as an old JPAC. Man, it makes a huge image quality difference. That freed up another IO board to finally drop it in my NNC mister setup and get rid of another hdmi -> vga converter. That...

    WTB Nanao MS8/MS9 (Astro City Compatible)

    Thanks for all the offers to take a look at what I'm dealing with. FIrst off - how the hell do I get a good photograph of an arcade monitor without catching the sync lines ruining the photo? Here's some I got before with some patterns from the 240p test suite.

    WTB Nanao MS8/MS9 (Astro City Compatible)

    Hey all - I've got an Astro City that has a long story. Got it from KC and to be honest it's just got some convergence and color issues that I'm not sure I can solve. Curious to look and see if anyone has a better condition specimen of this monitor out there for sale. I'm located in Oklahoma...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    Well, I've learned a few things since I last posted. I found out my cable does NOT have SH/SR ends on it, but has PH ends on it. I also learned that it is actually connector to connector-reversed. I plugged it in first with a connector to connector cable from the R/G/B/bright section of the...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    Just tested each connector and I get no continuity across pins 9, 10, 11. This was probably caused by me snagging it while trying to rotate the monitor, if I had to guess since you have to grab the bottom (where the remote board is located) to move the monitor and it's easy to accidentally snag...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I’ve pulled the remote board to check continuity and I can visually spot one wire pulled out of the connector on the remote board side. This is pin 11 on the remote board and as well as I can trace it goes to one leg of the SS Switch SW502. If you look at the other side you can spot my original...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I've pulled the monitor, discharged and cleaned around the anode cap and then replaced the anode cap and retried everything. Same overly bright, washed out image. I get no change when turning the BRIGHT pot on the remote board. This makes me think something is wrong there? Would there be any...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I'm certainly not great at eyeballing JST connectors yet, but is that a JST-SH that goes to bias/brightness on the remote board? In my head it makes sense that I'm not getting that brightness remote board in the "loop" somehow and since it's a potentiometer wouldn't it's effect be to restrict...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I’ve had problems with that harness before where I totally lost blue signal because of a wire out in the connector. I would believe it could be something to do with that smaller green connector on the bias/brightness side. If someone could tell me a replacement for that cable that is longer...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I left it as is for a while (off) and came back after dinner and now when I just turned it on it starts making a distinctly electric-clicking sound while it's warming up. It stopped this and finally got a picture, but it looks the same. I turned it right off after it got a picture thinking that...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    I haven't tried adjusting the R/G/B bias and seeing if I can bring it in yet, because it's in the cabinet and tough for me to get in and out. It can't be common to see big adjustments to calibration because a monitor has been rotated, right? I can't spot anything grounding out, or that was...

    Nanao-MS8FSG Washed Out/no brightness adjust

    Hey guys, just rotated my Astro City this afternoon into vert from horizontal and now after I've got everything back up I've got a very washed out picture. I can adjust screen down, but eventually rather than an all-black I just get a cloudy white. I can't get this thing to make a real black...

    MiSTer JAMMA options?

    I'm already in the Mistercade pre-order, just waiting for him to release the final version. Looking forward to it. I'll probably put it in my Astro City and flip that to tate, and then potentially go with JVS-PAC2 in my NNC in yoko and then I can easily enough swap that to Naomi since everything...

    MiSTer JAMMA options?

    I don't have any need for mine to be used in a public environment, but I respect that some folks might have that requirement. For me, my criteria would be your usual latency, accuracy issues but also I'd like better input assignment and handling. I had to faff about with my Astro City Mister...

    MiSTer JAMMA options?

    I'm just about to take possession of my first New Net City, and I'd like to run a MiSTer in it, but also have the option to swap it easily back to a Naomi setup. I was just curious how you've got on with your JVS-PAC setup and if it easily allows that? I'm very familiar with MiSTer as I've...

    Sega Astro City credit switch

    Thanks - that’s sort of what I’d come up with in my searching also today. Is there any particular kind that should fit my Astro City coin door? Or, is there a standard?
