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

    Likely because of the Taito F3 + OSSC combination that needs both hardware and software updates to the OSSC itself due to the F3's unusual all even field order (and some other quirks?). More info:

    New JAMMA Kit for Vewlix (and more!) - Universal JAMMA Interface

    In an ideal world, this box will be plug-and-play with the Taito F3 + OSSC combo (or certain other problem PCB / capture card / monitor combos), which, pretty sure, won't work without further sync processing. Both @RGB and @invzim seem to have this figured out in the latest reversions of the HAS...

    New JAMMA Kit for Vewlix (and more!) - Universal JAMMA Interface

    Nice. Keep in mind that PC PSUs with the classic ATX 20-pin motherboard connector are rapidly vanishing in favor of 24-pin. Those old split clip-together 20+4 motherboard connectors you used to see have largely disappeared in favor of a one-piece 24-pin that needs an extra adapter for 20-pin...

    An improved JVS-PAC (JVS-PAC 2)

    Also try using a USB 2.0 connection instead of a USB 3.0 connection. There's some funky USB chipsets out there. If it isn't a Fresco Logic, Intel, or Renesas chipset you may run into issues. AMD's and ASMedia's latest USB chipsets are good, but anything pre UBS 3.0 Gen 2 is known to have issues.

    DB15 to JVS adapter

    I can see some demand for this, but not much given the relative lack of modern DB15 sticks. What I do see getting a lot of demand, however, would be a direct USB-to-JVS dongle/board. Plug in your modern gamepad/fightstick into the dongle and the other end into JVS. I'd imagine @Raph_friend's...

    Blast City Cleanup/Restore - Stringbean

    If you want some inspiration and discussion of things like media blasting, plating, clear coating the plating, etc: Powder coating is your friend. The car guys call rust "cancer" for a reason.

    SEGA JVS Console I/O design proposal/interest check.

    How's the vertical space on these Sega cabs? How about taking the concept of the Vewlix Console I/O and add a 3rd layer on top that is the original JVS IO? That way you'd have from top to bottom the JVS -> Brook board -> new adapter where the Brook boards plug into the adapter on the bottom and...

    Pre-Order For Mini Cute Production

    Just now catching this thread... So if this ends up being a regular run thing, has there been consideration to an all white model outside of the original yellow/green/pink?

    Blast City Cleanup/Restore - Stringbean

    From the photos, it looks like the bright and dull nickel plating survived the acid, but the yellow zinc pieces didn't? You'll need to re-plate them (only the yellow zinc pieces?) to have them both look original and keep them from rusting badly, especially if you're in a humid environment. You...

    New JAMMA Kit for Vewlix (and more!) - Universal JAMMA Interface

    Would it be possible to combine Sega/Taito/Namco control panel connectors all on the same input bridge card? Think 3x input connectors with a single output on a bridge board. Visually looking at the mechanical packaging of the JVS IO boards in the Vewlix (Taito K91X1097B, K91X1097C, K91X1147A...

    New JAMMA Kit for Vewlix (and more!) - Universal JAMMA Interface

    I think the secondary video out is pointless given the device's intended use case. Do a single video out over a DE-15 VGA connector and call it good. The JVS spec calls for VGA-style RGBHV over DE-15 and effectively every desirable scaler out there can take DE-15 directly or via a BNC breakout...

    GS Containers: New listings, Vewlix DIA, PRas 3, Rhythm, etc.

    @Cereth You mentioned in passing in the Chrono Regalia cabinet unwrap video that there was a tech in Japan who did a video of a complete conversion on a P-ras 3. Do you have a link to that video?

    The Taito F3 Sync

    Some related details that may be interesting: The PC Engine / TG16 and Sega Master System also have funky, rough sync issues and a fix that seems to work is doing a...

    GS Containers: New listings, Vewlix DIA, PRas 3, Rhythm, etc.

    I'm potentially up for 2x Sega P-Ras 3 cabs. I do have some questions: - Just how stripped are these coming in? I/O boards and complete harnesses at least? - I assume these are JVS-only with no OEM JAMMA kits available? Completely proprietary? - What's the situation with parts, documentation...

    An improved JVS-PAC (JVS-PAC 2)

    Got any links? I know you need to pay Microsoft to get on the real-deal Xbox(tm) licensed accessories list so that an actual Xbox console will recognize the controller, but stuff like the latest Hori PS4 pads/sticks won't work on a real Xbox, but with the switch in "PC" mode Windows definitely...

    An improved JVS-PAC (JVS-PAC 2)

    Only real-deal Xbox consoles need to have functional controller DRM encryption support. Windows, or any other OS for that matter, doesn't even bother to check. All you need to do is have the proper USB HID flags for xinput and things will work. If you want to see this in the wild, see any...

    Help me find a replacement tube for my WG D9200

    It's an A68 tube, so there's a very good chance most any random curved or flat non-Trinitron 27" (29" in rest of world) would work that's been pulled from a $10 Craigslist TV. This will depend on pinout and how the yoke measures, but good chance. If you get desperate, I'll bet money on the 29"...

    Name for JVS2JAMMA board

    Is there any way to downscale without a full framebuffer and the requisite minimum full frame of lag? Might be possible to do something like 480p60->480i60 where each field drops every other progressive horizontal line on an alternating basis. Getting 25khz into 31khz can be done with a 5:4...
