If you're talking about the G balance SQ cabinets, no. They use JST EL connectors, rather than Amp UP connectors.

I have the necessary connectors on hand and can make you a harness if needed.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I might be interested in buying some harnesses.
I'll try to get some pictures of the connectors up here :)

I sent him a PM for work about a month ago and he never bothered to respond back, based on his forum usage, he seems to be here as of yesterday. Maybe he's swamped or just doesn't care.
Either way, there are other cable vendors available to get your project done, see here on the forums for an alternative. I was very happy with the work.

TL;DR: I’m sorry I didn’t reply. I don’t appreciate you referring people to someone else because I didn’t reply to *you*. I don’t like working on egrets of all kinds for reasons and was both too over run with backlog from other people and real life/my own stuff.

*sigh*

I told myself I would never make THAT post, but since you hopped in *my* thread and told people to not use my services, you forced my hand.

The initial message:
4F4847CF-320F-4503-AD3E-668955681306.jpeg

So, mea culpa, I didn’t reply. That’s on me and I apologize for that.

That said, here’s a picture of my workshop:
image.jpg

There are three full NAC harnesses, Three PSUs (one NAC, two NVS PSUs), 8 blast city-001, a dead x3 motherboard, a Franken-x3 with a standard desktop motherboard, and many many small undone personal projects (never mind the NNC, the Astro city 2, and the big red I have at my brother’s home that I’ve been restoring as personal projects… for nearly two years).

I also have 5 daughters (yes, F I V E), a wife, and a day job that require most of my attention. Not because I HAVE to, but because I choose to.

Custom work takes time. LOTS of time. And access to original hardware. I don’t have an aviary of the same model of cabinet because if I did, I wouldn’t make stuff for most cabinets. I have a ton of different ones so I can verify that my hair-brained adapters work on lots of stuff. For the stuff I don’t have, I have an 18 inch tall stack of manuals and wiring diagrams So I can at least determine how things are connected.

Yadda yadda yadda why didn’t I reply, right?

The Egret and it’s offspring are… not my favorite to work on, and even breathing anything inauthentic in its direction will draw the ire of people on the internet. I’ve stated very clearly that I didn’t like my E2 when I had it and boy, you should have seen the DMs sent to me both telling me that I was insane, or was only in it for the money (???), or deserved to die (!!!) while in the same messages begging me to sell it to them and that they deserved it. Beyond making cp harnesses that work with most Taito cabinets, I really try to not work with egrets. Stock parts for them are unobtanium, and if you CAN find them, they’re $$$$$$$. The e29 is even worse.

I’m sorry, my man. I just wasn’t interested. And I should have had the courtesy of simply telling you that. And that’s on me. And I am truly, truly sorry for that.

I’ve been busy restocking my own usual stuff (cp, extra button, and kick harnesses for Taito/Namco/sega cabs, FGC adapters for Brook and UD-USB boards) and anyone who has been working with me the past few months in rebuilding their cabinet main harnesses knows, I’ve been up to my ears on custom requests as well.

All of which are hand-made by an army of one in my basement here in happy valley Utah.

Combine that with me dropping thousands of dollars on finding LEGIT wire colors and stripe coordinations, as well as obtaining original parts for full harness reproductions (I am now selling blast city -001 looms as well!) and you can see that I’ve had my work cut out for me.

Also, those at-large that are reading this: This isn't a cry for help, for understanding, or even sympathy. I'm just letting everyone know the why behind the silence sometimes. There are many other people out there that do what I have been doing for the past 10 years, and by all means if I turn something down you should go elsewhere. Hell, I'll probably even refer you to them :D

I genuinely appreciate the trust you all have all placed in me in the past decade, and I promise that I'm not taking that for granted. I hope you can see that in the ever improving quality of my work.

In the future, I’ll be better about being upfront with people when I don’t have time/energy/or interest in custom stuff, rather than letting them hang out on read, hoping that I can get back to them later. I truly appreciate you even asking me for help and I'm sincerely sorry I let you down.

The first batch of -001 looms are ready to ship! The price on these is $175 + shipping.

I have attempted to work as closely to the original parts as possible. Some were impossible to get due to either being out of stock (the yellow AMP UP connectors), no longer made (the RCA connectors), or impossible to find (gray 2 conductor wire with color stripe) so I have improvised or found adequate replacements.

I hope you like them :) I have a few in this first run left, and will make more if the demand is there.

I’m also thinking about making JVS harnesses for the blast city, in the same vein of the -001 loom that will allow direct connection to a sega JVS IO board. What do you all think? Should I make some?

@Lemony Vengeance are any of those full NAC harnesses for sale?
I have one with a PSU (has the stereo amp attached) that I’m holding on to for someone.. and one that I was going to add to my personal AC2, however I can repair the old one from my AC2 and get this other one ready for ya :D. Shoot me a message through our usual methods and we’ll collaborate on it :D

So someone brought my attention to this thread and just want to say @FluxChiller I appreciate the shout-out and appreciate your business but I find it kind of awkward to be name dropped into another seller's thread as part of a callout, I hope you can understand ^^;; I did take the job because it was interesting to me and I happened to have all the correct tooling to do so and wanted to help get an awesome cab running, but full control harnesses are typically not my thing and I usually turn them down and actually recommend people go to LV for that sort of thing. This was really a one-off. I think we both offer something sort of different and have different lanes and I don't want there to be some perception of me being an alternative to someone or vice versa, particularly in the context of something I don't normally do. I definitely understand being overwhelmed with requests and other commitments, I think most people offering products/services here (definitely including me) are doing so as a side thing partly to contribute to the hobby so some leeway should be given if no money changed hands and nothing actually went bad.

This was in no way meant to disrespect you or minimize your efforts in the community, my man! I love that there are lots of people out there doing what we do, and that we can lean on each other for relief when we’re overloaded.

There’s lots of opportunities to lift each other up so we’re re all at the same place, and while I’ve had my own opinions in the past, the drama between people in our hobby isn’t worth it to me anymore.

I’m honestly blessed to be here, and I mean that with all my heart.

I agree, It is a little weird to suggest specific people in a sales/advertisement thread and that was 50% of the motivation in writing my post. The other half was to apologize for not getting back to him. The rest was just context. 😅 Nothing worse than getting caught in the middle, so please know that you and I and @FluxChiller are super good :D no Ill feelings held for anyone ☺️

Thank you to you, @dos for your understanding, help, and everything you do to help people play games!
