Made a PCB in the form factor originated by the Akishop's PS360+
(now popularized by Brook) for the Daemonbite Arcade Encoder
. Putting it through it's paces with MAME and JAMMAizer now. Particularly interested if it solves the inability for Windows to enumerate HID USB Gamepads on a cold boot up of Windows 7 on some PC's encountered with the MC Cthulhu. This is a problem I encountered with my MAME builds and spurred exploration into the Daemonbite encoder. BTW, JAMMAizer is fantastic for MAME! Flexible enough for both stereo based cabs and JAMMA audio based cabs. No need to wire up an audio amp like you have to do with a J-Pac. And does a much better job amping the video than J-Pac, IMO.
Should be greatly helpful as an excellent low latency low cost controller to run MAME, MiSTer, RPi, PS2 & PS3 along with JAMMAizer. Pretty much, this is an alternative to the Brook Pi Zero board
, but at less than half the cost and may be even faster in terms of latency. I purposefully did not add screw terminals because I feel it is better anyway to make a harness (like this one
) with a 2x10 2.54mm connector
; keeps the cost lower too if you ever want to use this in a fight stick or stuff it under your arcade CP. The connectors
are even cheaper if ordering from China/eBay, as are the 2x10 pin headers
If all is successful, I will release the gerber in keeping with the opensource spirit of the encoder and JAMMAizer.
