Pre-order here -> https://homearcadesystem.wordpress.com/pre-order/
FAQ -> https://homearcadesystem.wordpress.com/faq/

Please PM me only in case of technical questions or problems with your HAS. I won't accept orders via PM. Google forms on my website is the only way to buy anything from me.

You won't receive any confirmation after submitting the pre-order. If the google forms doesn't crash, then it means your pre-order will definitely be in. Please be patient, I'll get back to everyone when the devices are ready for shipping.





Home Arcade System



Home Arcade System, HAS for short, is my supergun project. The idea was to have a relatively small PCB-type supergun but packed with some useful features (button layout remapping, autofire, and hassle-free arcade power supply connection).

Features:

  • JAMMA, JAMMA+ and CHAMMA compatible
  • DB15 controller ports (NeoGeo compatible, extended to support buttons 5 and 6)
  • Programmable button layout
  • Programmable rapid-fire (VSync synchronized, 6 different fire rates)
  • Buttons 1-6 on the JAMMA connector (buttons 4-6 can be disabled)
  • Buttons 4-6 on the “kick harness” connector
  • Internal memory to store the button layout and rapid-fire settings
  • RGB+CSync video output (75 Ohm impedance)
  • Selectable video Low Pass Filter
  • Video brightness regulation via one knob
  • CSync buffer
  • CSync regeneration (fixes video issues in the Taito F3 connected via the XRGB Mini)
  • Selectable CSync level and impedance (~0.35Vp-p, 75 Ohm impedance or ~5Vp-p, high impedance, TTL)
  • HSync and VSync outputs (~5Vp-p, high impedance, TTL)
  • 8pin mini DIN connector for audio and video output (XRGB Mini pinout)
  • 3.5mm jack connector for audio output (it will override the 8pin mini DIN audio output)
  • Audio attenuation
  • JAMMA (mono audio) or MVS (stereo audio) compatible
  • Test and Service buttons
  • Voltmeter
  • 6pin power connector
  • Acrylic glass case
  • Modular build (the basic functionality can be expanded by using special modules)
Items:
  • HASV4 supergun - [temporarily unavailable] (the set includes a HAS unit; a set of accessories - 2x laser cut 4mm acrylic covers (for top and bottom), a set of screws, and spacers (the "case" comes unassembled); a power supply cable - high quality 45cm long 18AWG cables; 6pin connector on one end, M3.5 fork terminals on the other end that is suitable for arcade power supplies).
  • Sega Saturn to JAMMA joypad converter - [temporarily unavailable]
    • lagless
    • 6 functional buttons + start and coin buttons
    • A built-in coin mechanism emulator.
    • Compatible with official Sega Saturn joypads and arcade sticks (HSS-0104, HSS-0136, HSS-0130). 3rd party controllers/adapters work with limited luck. Analog controllers (including the Sega one; HSS-0137) are not compatible.

  • CPS2 kick harness, 25cm long (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]

  • CPS1 kick harness, 45cm long (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]


  • 3P4P adapter PCB - allows to connect Player 3 and Player 4. The pinout of the 34 pin connector matches the IGS PGM pinout - [temporarily unavailable]


  • CPS2 Player 3 and Player 4 harness for the 3P4P adapter (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]
  • Konami Player 3 and Player 4 harness for the 3P4P adapter (compatible with X-Men, TNMNT I & II, Sunset Riders, Simpsons, Bucky O'Hare, Dark Adventure, Metamorphic Force, G.I. Joe) (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]
  • QSound (CPS1.5 Dash) Player 3 and Player 4 harness for the 3P4P adapter (compatible with Warriors of Fate, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Saturday Night Slam Masters, Muscle Bomber Duo: Heat Up Warriors) (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]
  • Sega ST-V Player 3 and Player 4 harness for the 3P4P adapter (colours may vary) - [temporarily unavailable]
  • HD15 adapter PCB. With this adapter you can connect the HAS with the OSSC using a standard VGA cable (it helps with the Taito F3, which won't work with the OSSC when connected via the Scart). You can also use a VGA->BNC cable to connect it directly to PVM/BVM monitors. The adapter comes with a set of spacers - [temporarily unavailable]


  • 8pin mini DIN to HD15 adapter PCB. With this adapter you can connect the HAS with the OSSC using a standard VGA cable (it helps with the Taito F3, which won't work with the OSSC when connected via the Scart). You can also use a VGA->BNC cable to connect it directly to PVM/BVM monitors. This adapter requires an 8pin mini DIN to 8pin mini DIN cable (pins must connect straight through end to end - [temporarily unavailable]


  • RGB to Composite Video/S-Video adapter. Based on the popular Sony CXA2075 IC - [temporarily unavailable]

Very nice. That's the kind of devices we like to see.

Hi,
I have a Mak Strike V3
Is your "Sega Saturn to JAMMA joypad converter - 30 EUR" compatible with it ?
I mean the buttons mapping of course

Pinout-wise it's compatible, but I don't recommend using it with MAK strike. Undamned performed a number of tests and there seems to be a problem with the MAK strike "design". Basically, the controllers (an maybe even the video out, not tested) get +5V at all times, even if the MAK strike switch is in OFF position. In result, when you turn it ON, the PSU creates a huge voltage spike that can damage stuff.. Here's the full research and explanation - http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/comment/10326678/#Comment_10326678

The thing though, is that I don't sell these converters separately due to very limited quantity (I've only got a few), they're reserved for HAS buyers. Once I sell all HAS units and I have some Saturn to JAMMA converters left, I can let you know.

Cheers,
RGB

thank you for the feedback
So the mapping is the same, but the connector can be damaged because of Mak Strike V3 model (especially the 5v issue)

Not the connector, but the micro-controller used in joypad converters.

Sounds good to me ;)
Thank you for the details
I've just finished reading the threads
I'll probably buy one of your Superguns soon :)

Please one for me with 1x Saturn and 1xCPS-2 Adapter and 1x "SCART to 2xRCA and 8pin mini DIN adapter", shipping to Germany :)

Could you also provide 8Pin mini-DIN cables to connect the Supergun to the XRGBmini?

Thanks! :)

nice!
would be nice if you did something similar but with the opposite gender jamma connector.
basically a JPAC but improved.
the JPAC has it's good points but its a pain in the ass because it doesn't have an audio amp so you have to use shitty PC speakers or something else bolted on.

Awesome supergun! Have you been able to test the undamned PS3/XBOX360 usb converter with your supergun? I have an XRGB mini, how do you connect the sound to it?

Thanks in advance.

Undamned converter has been tested and works perfectly with HAS. Regarding the XRGB mini - it all depends on your setup. If you want, you can use a direct 1:1 8pin mini DIN cable. Audio will go via the mini DIN cable as long as nothing is connected to the jack connector on HAS.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, these look like a lovely bit of kit :thumbup:

I just wish I had use for a supergun. I'm kinda tempted to get one anyway :D

You mentioned the framemeister, have you had one running though one yet? What are the results like? Do you think it would be ok through a 5m mini-din cable?

Do the kick-harnesses use a JST XHP-8?

Thank you :)

The result with the XRGB mini is positive, I mean, it works just fine. Here's Limpan's setup:


I'm not sure how it's going to work through a 5m long cable, though. One of those Extron RGB devices could be handy if you want to run signals through such long cables.

The connector is JST XHP-6.
