Re: Best version of Pandoras box

A raspberry PI 4 will be just as good and you can tweak it and run other emulators. I have a Pandora-6 and for the £40 it cost me it works well enough - but playing some of the games is annoying due to screen-tear, juddering, slowdowns and odd sound. You almost need a list of "Duff" games so you can...

Help : Taito universal IO PCB K91X1245A

I picked this up with some other Taito kit from SMJ and sea freighted it back to the UK - They've shutdown the site so I can't find the auction I bought it from to get the info that was on it... Anyone have the manual or know how to wire it up? What I want to do is use it in place of the JVS PCB tha...

Nice Ambo cab - https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/n409323602

Plenty cheap at the moment - 2 days to go....

Covid-19 seems to be causing prices to drop a bit on YAJ (every cloud has a silver lining).

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

Hopefully no problems- I've got £500 worth of pcbs in SMJ's Tokyo storage. And they have $150 bidding deposit.

Guess I'll be using buyee for my YAJ fix going forward.

Re: Pana Custom video sync issues

If you pop the top off there are some switches on the video pcb fro ntsc/pal try changing the settings on them, there are some pots on the rear and on the pcb they adjust sync saturation etc so be careful how you adjust them.

Re: Chewlix vs Vewlix vs other modern Cabs

If you want to run a Pandora - then the standard off the shelf JAMMA Chewlix with 2L14B or 2L16B control panel will work just fine. When you order it you need to make sure it comes with a full JAMMA loom and power supply - the Chewlix monitor is a 720P, 32" CD with DVI & VGA inputs (some come with H...

Yes - 2 * DIA Black as well - but I'll need to sell the F's to pay for them (so 2 in - 2 out) the Aero is a new addition.

Re: 100 Yen coin substitute

I 3D printed a dummy coin mech and installed that on the Vewlix's so any coin with a smaller diameter than 50p will work (50p's get stuck on the coin switch wire).

My other cab has a 928 token mech and some "MAME" tokens (which are about the same size as a Quarter)....
