Apparently changing Irem leaking ELNA caps also devalues a board :palm:
Meh, I'd totally forgotten that one ... adds 'check IREM boards for caramel caps' to the arcade to-do list :eh:

Re: CANCELED Pcb Akuu Gallet Japanese アクウギャレット

Yeah totally - We weren't saying it was a 'hobbyist' conversion, but very likely the pcb stock was re-used internally for newer game titles, hence the rom labels looking original too. As said, you'd need to remove the number label on other pcbs to know for sure, which nobody will volunteer, given it...

Re: CANCELED Pcb Akuu Gallet Japanese アクウギャレット

Re: Step-down for cab

I still have a bunch of 220-240v -> 100-120v maplin style stepdowns. I think previous owners of my cabs used them, but I'm still fearful of blindly pumping 120v into 100v rated Japanese spec PSU's, sound amps and monitors. Some posts have stated 120v is well within 'tolerance' levels for a 29" Japan...

Re: Jamma

Usually it is only needed to have 2x 5V & 2x GND cables. These are the main 'power' lines that most game PCBs use so it can help to make sure they have more wires or thicker wire that the other connections on your JAMMA loom. It is mainly for older, larger and more power-hungry game PCBs.. and bootl...
