Star Trigon Control Panel?

Does anyone know if there was an official control panel for star Trigon? I've got all the official artwork, but since you only need 1 button to play the game (plus the start button) it always seems a bit crap playing it on a fully fitted out control panel with joysticks and buttons. I've got some go...

Re: Blast City with Blurry Screen For About 5 Minutes

Did you melt in some new solder? As this helps dilute the older solder

Re: Wonderboy problem

On some bootlegs like that they don't share a connection between the main ground, and video ground. This isn't a problem if the wiring in your cabinet joins those ground together. Looks like you are running it in a candy cabinet? In my new astro city I had sync problem with a SF2 bootleg not syncing...

Re: demon front mvs?????

Used to have a PGM just for that game. In the end, it turned out to be a gorgeous borefest of a game. The enemy AI is random at best. Gfx are marvelous, the ost is pretty much boring, narator is boring and the non-grenade'ish C button makes it pale. I'd rather play Cyber Lip over this one. :awe: Sa...

Re: Retouching New Astro City body paint advice

All the metal work on my Astros have been blasted and powder coated RAL9002. Colour looks spot on.

I'll get some pics to post up here

Re: New PC, any good games to play?

What kind of games to you like?

I like all genres of game, so there is a bit of a mix here, but Id recommend:

Shadow of the Tomb raider
Gears 5
Control
Guacamelee 2 (not graphically demanding but a great metroid/castevania style game)
The Witcher 3

Re: Jamma sound amp vs power supply amp

It shouldn't cause any problems running the pcb at full and then turning down the pot, but i personally tend to put my pcb at around 3/4 mark (as this is still WAY too loud in a home environment) and then turn down from there. Another good reason to do this is you dont know what the quality of the a...

Re: Jamma sound amp vs power supply amp

The pot on an astro city power supply is for turning down the volume from the jamma output. There is no amplification involved. it is just to make it quicker/easier than trying to find the pot on the pcb Edit to add: having the pot at max will only be outputting the volume level that the pcb is set ...

Re: I think I broke my speaker :(

Naomi 2 outputs are phono connectors that are line (low) level. Hooking them straight up to a set of speakers would surely just have resulted in a quiet output?
