Re: Game Boys (Bivert-curious welcome)

Replaced the screen in my OG white GBA today with one of the [ Chinese ones from ebay. ] I originally installed had an Afterburner front light kit in it some 16+ years ago. Check out the soldering skillz on this bad boy :lolno: https://photos.smugmug.com/General/n-PVcsR/i-XH2cvfC/0/3e1ad8fb/X2/i-XH2...

Re: Are you a feeder?

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you zak. I always play one credit at a time as I really enjoy getting a little further than I have previously and the 'reward' is seeing part of the game I've not seen before. There's a certain thrill comes with that which is heightened by trying to stay alive as ...

Re: Header dimension (pony25)

The thicker 5mm section fits inside the cab. You can put the 3mm section on the front or the back. It makes sense to have it on the back so that the front is flush. I used to use a router to make mine but if you were looking to get one made you would want to get one cut at a company with CNC machine...

Re: 6 buttons on Taito Egret 2

The E2 is wired for five buttons from the JAMMA edge. Button 6 is connected via the S connector. Take a look at the [ E2 wiring diagram ] All six button inputs are wired to the ten and 15 pin JST YL connectors as can be seen in the bottom RH corner. Only button four on pin 9 is labelled 'Spare 1' bu...

Re: Wanted: Game Boy Advance (modded with backlit screen)

I think my OG white GBA was the first thing I ever modded. I remember buying it from Dixons on launch with some crappy games on finance when I was doing my apprenticeship. I remember using a soldering iron of my dads (who had and still has never soldered) which had a massive tip ( :whoopsie: ) to in...

Re: [Project] Capcom Mini Cute Cabinet Production

You've made one before? Awesome :awe: I would be interested in seeing one of your repros. nvs asked me to make one many moons ago and I remember looking into it.

Re: [Project] Capcom Mini Cute Cabinet Production

Lol, I was going to say. I was a bit worried when you mentioned carton paper. Maybe I still should be :awe:

I've not had a Cute before, how does the monitor cover fit to the cab? Cast plastic hinges or?

I made it before with some foam and black carton paper. Then painted. There is only this way I know.
For this?

Re: Has anybody done an extension cable?

A lot of monitors seem to use [ JST EH series ] connectors for the adjustment board. The adjustment board for the Toei TC-RM25J in my Pony Mk3 25 is anything but remote and was a pain to adjust so I made a extension cable for it so I can relocate it under the CP. https://photos.smugmug.com/Wiring/n-...

Re: Xbox 360 in an Astro City?

Apologies, It's a while since I've had mine out :whoopsie:

You're correct. It is 6 pin, something like [this] would be suitable.

It's a five pin 0.156" pitch 'Molex KK'. Something like [this] would fit.

Re: Sega Astro City Joystick Issue

First off I would plug P2 joystick into the P1 AMP UP and see if it works OK. That will tell you if you have an issue with P1 joystick/loom or the wiring after the AMP UP connector.
