Hi there everyone,
I bought a Dreamcast MGCD to put inside my cab.
It runs audio and video when hooked to a DC and plugged into a cab, but the cab controls don't respond.
I have to plug a controller on the dreamcast to be able to play on the cab ... which is not satisfactory.
Can someone tell me if there is a problem with the cab controls.
Also I haven't been able to find the user manual for my specific model (52719 MC MZ / DC-P-GEN 01-24)
If anyone can help me figure out if I miss something or if the thing is malfunctioning, please let me know.
I cut the connections at the end and soldered them to the beginning grounds. It is the same situation as with the Chinese Pandora Box and Game Elf boards. The MGCD uses the “CHAMMA” standard which is only slightly different than the JAMMA standard. You might even be able to use a JAMMA Nation X Pandora to JAMMA adapter board and get the extra buttons through a kick harness, but I haven’t tested that idea. I just thought of it right now.
