    Multi JVS v1.0

    Note that I have a couple of personal revisions of a different board called MEGA JVS that is not available for sale, and the Multi JVS is a separate design by @Darksoft. I first designed my version to work in a OR2SP cab using the Sega Type 1 standard. The Multi JVS uses a Sega standard based...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    Let's just say it's an unsupported feature at this time. I had messed around with HID controls over the programming port, but it requires flashing the chip that controls the normal programming communication. It's been years since I did it. I would recommend against it, but the current...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    This is a little complicated. This current version of the Multi JVS is not pin compatible with the Namco board, so you would have to make an adapter. The Sega standard, which this board uses, does not have all of the same inputs as the Namco, so you can't even wire it 1-to-1. Do NOT plug the...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    Just for the sake of posterity, the 6 position shifter on WMMT is comprised of 4 inputs, with some of the gears being a combo of 2 simultaneous inputs. It's not a terribly complex mechanism, but it would be difficult to replicate. At any rate, my limited testing of the 2-position shifter in...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    Yes, that's supported, at least for controlling the 6 position shifter used in WMMT. The I/O keeps track of the current gear and changes it accordingly with UP and DOWN. Then it reports the correct inputs being active that WMMT reads as the respective shifter position. This was a major feature...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    6 position shifter for WMMT1-3dx+ on an ID1-8 or OR2 cab 2-position shifter is supported in the firmware. IIRC, it's a special feature option in the profile editor... or else it's tied to profile name. It should allow CT cab to the play the other games, but you'll have to make mapping profiles...

    High Quality JIS Hardware Source?

    I am not a business and I have ordered from McMaster-Carr many times with no issues. Small orders and large orders alike. I've never had any kind of minimum order total imposed. I think of them as the Digikey of hardware/materials. I'm in the US, so perhaps there aren't restrictions like...

    Vacuum Formed Part Reproduction

    I wonder how deep the dye penetrates, but probably it's just a surface dye. I would think you run the risk of everywhere the plastic stretches getting more translucent the more it is stretched vs applying the dye to the already stretched surface. Basically you'd be increasing the surface area...

    JVS Emulator

    This is is the diagram I followed for my sense line implementation in MEGA JVS, and it has always worked. IIRC, I use a 10k ohm resistor, to sink the transistor.

    Multi JVS v1.0

    I agree that this should be a different project. Someone start a project ideas thread and I'll happily participate. It won't likely be a project I do, though. Things to think about: 1. Can a usb host board be adapted into this? Are the necessary pins exposed on the headers or are there some...

    Can anyone ID this connector?

    I don't know why, but perhaps TE is not using the AMP name very heavily at this point. Common brands of connectors for arcades seem to be JST and AMP, so I figured it was likely one of those. I don't know for sure, but I'm thinking Molex would not typically be found in use in a cab if you were...

    Multi JVS v1.0

    I think it would get pretty complicated to support a single device acting as multiple simultaneous devices. I would be concerned about the amount of time needed to process all the channels of communication on the one board, and I can't even conceive of how I would add in support for multiple...

    Custom JVS I/O - MEGA JVS

    Anyone who expressed interest in this might want to check out the board designed by @Darksoft here: Multi JVS v1.0 It's compatible with MEGA JVS firmware, and, best of all, will actually be available to people who want it.

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    Interesting that people are jumping in to work on these scripts at this point. Thanks for sharing. I do have a version that supports printing with a RPI web-based frontend. It has a much improved workflow, and manages card ejection and changes. I'm just not ready to release it publicly...

    UNI-BIOS 4.0 now free

    Awesome! I didn't even consider trying that. Does that work without an adapter for these? Those seem to do a decent job. I actually had a computer bios chip (not remembering part number of form factor off hand) I wanted to program in the GQ-4X, but the adapter needed was crazy expensive. I...

    Digikey sells one-time programmable EPROMS that are compatible: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/AT27C1024-70PU/AT27C1024-70PU-ND I got one to write successfully with my GQ-4X and the ADP-054 adapter. It's working in my 2 slot. I had issues with the programmer not reading in my...

    Button layout help

    For my part, I've not committed any changes to my control panel that I had already modified for a straight 6 layout. I got it all wired up for fighters, and have a hanging JAMMA 4 lead, so if I really need to switch it, I can just flip open the control panel and swap it for kick harness 4. It...
