I love this idea, would be great to have some modern interface options too.I would like to hear community thoughts if there is such a demand
I honestly didn't know about this supergun, interesting project, but what about the compatibility, it's easy to add new devices? Why there's so low acceptance here?I love this idea, would be great to have some modern interface options too.
The Winchester supergun may have some helpful ideas if you decide to https://www.arcade-projects.com/threads/the-winchester-jamma-supergun.17385/#post-278900
Is there demand for it? Not sure, but it would be wicked cool
I learned a lot from this, thankyou! Everything I make is a labor of love, Sometimes I spend 5 minutes on a single SMD resistor making sure it is perfect, so these kinds of considerations are all new to me. Thankyou for sharing your knowledge!Well, look at current USB2DB15.
hello @Elfoam I can help with a video cable and a power cable if you need (with the end on it to connect to the minigun). PM me! I have all but run out of minigun PCB's (except for 9 pin mini din ones) and I am pondering over having more PCBs printed and continuing the build/selling of these great boards to continue Franks legacy (kind of). I am so grateful for all he has done.a video cable
Hey, thanks for the offer for that stuff. Just an update on where I'm at now.
sounds like me !irrational nostalgia
Ah yes, I think I got the 8 pin board from your ebay listing, thanks for that it was great to be able to get one locally and fast, I built it almost as soon as it arrived, big late night soldering session, I didn't look at the rest of your shop till after I built it but I eventually saw you had a nice 8 pin to scart cable, I very nearly ordered one but in the end my tightness got the better of me so I'll build one from a old VGA cable for now, this is probably going to be a poor decision but I do that often... I used to work at an Network / PC building company in the 90s and have learnt the lesson about AT power supply switches the hard way back then . I've been slowly teaching myself to draw PCBs so I hope to have something useful to contribute in the future. I should order a couple more PGM boards and maybe an atomiswave, that will probably be the sensible limit for me on real hardware. As much as I like the old times I can't see myself with huge expensive golden age PCBs all over the place. Most of my time and money in the last decade has been spent on old home computers but in the end I only love those because as I kid I wanted the arcade games at home. Luckily these days access to the real thing is much better one way or another.sounds like me !
AT PSU might work not sure if it has -5v either, but you wont need -5v for many boards anyway. Early ATX PSU have -5v, but new ATX PSU do not. Be careful with AT PSU, the power switch wiring is highly loaded with amps, an old friend of mine zapped himself silly with one of those.
