  • I'll just stick with emulation. I've got a Raspberry Pi with 10,000 games on it that cost less than one PCB. Emulation may not be perfect, but it's good enough for me.

  • I never even knew about this side of retro gaming, thanks for enlightening me dude. If one really wanted to take it to the next level, make a mini cabinet for it where you can switch out the boards on the back.

  • I'm trying to get this to work, and I think I have everything set up but the power supply. I'm trying to get Pac-Man to work which needs -5V but I can't find a new ATX power supply to do the job. I bought the Essentials Basic and I already had the Suzo Happ from another project so I figured I'd just hook it up. The problem is how do I connect the Basic to the power supply? I don't have any obvious terminals and I'm unsure how to connect them. Is there yet another converter I could get to alleviate this issue? Either an ATX with a -5v or a way to connect my Suzu Happ to the ATX would be much appriciated.

  • For convenience, I got a Sega Naomi cab a few years ago, it's already a computer setup in a sense, the screen is a Sanyo 39" semi flat in 31KHz with VGA connector input, I bought a trifreq chassis and a converter for the controls (the cab got a proprietary centralized controls box that regroup all the player 1 and 2 commands, 2 starts buttons and coin box controls, but connect to the Naomi system with a USB-B connector, the converter simply make the controls signals recognized as a keyboard). It works great in emulation. I planned to add JAMMA compatibility, coupled with the trifreq chassis, there will be almost no need for a video converter, only a cable converter, same for the controls going to the JAMMA connector. The cab itself is a hard piece of metal, very sturdy, the plastics are essentially here to decorate (except the control panel, it's made of plastic). The plus side are: the Naomi cab is incredibly cheap, got mine for less than 300€ in OK condition (totally functional, in need of a good refresh cosmetically), it's sturdy, the system is easily hackable to accept many cab systems (either single board, central systems with carts or a PC motherboard for emulation). The downside are: it's heavy, 130kg of pure Japanese goodness (even if the cab is mounted on wheels, I don't move it frequently). the screen is a CRT, with all the problems that occurs with them (on the good side, a couple of years ago, I found that replacements are still sold for not that much, but still an investment and flat screens conversion kits exists as a last resort). The screen needs a VERY specific resolution, there's some solutions, either hack the video card to spit the good resolution from the PC powering up or adjusting the parameters of the driver, but it require to wait for windows to finish the booting before power on the screen. That said, possessing a cab at home is just fantastic, playing at old arcade classics on the hardware with friends is pleasant (even if it's not the original hardware, it's still arcade tech) and it's a good looking piece in my living room :)

  • I wonder why the Americans only had component and we over here in Europe only had RGB/SCART? I'm guessing it's because over in Europe, we had more than one colour standard. Some countries used PAL and some countries used SECAM (and Belgium used both, PAL in Flanders and Flemish language networks and SECAM in Wallonia and French language networks) and America only used one colour standard (NTSC) RGB is colour standard independent, component (and composite) isn't.

  • How much of a pain in the ass would it be to set this up for some light gun games like Area 51, Target Terror, Police Trainer, etc? I would like to build a multicab, but I just don't have that kind of room. I want to set up a few PCBs in a big wooden box with everything contained that I could just plug into a CRT monitor/tv, but I don't think it's going to be that simple.

  • How much did these boards cost arcade owners back in the day? I imagine that they were much more expensive than what they cost today. (Discounting the cost of the converter train.) Also I love that people are picking up the new timestamp feature to create chapters in their videos. It is such a small change and a decades old idea, but it is still great. Hierarchical chapters as found in MKV never picked up steam, but perhaps one day...

  • You really don't want to play these arcade pcbs on any lcd, modern tv or monitors. Input lag, which will be there no matter what that label or marketing ad "blurb" says. Any Sony Trinitron crt from the late 80s-early 00s, can be modified very easily for rgb/vga input from the arcade pcbs. Another alternative is finding the literally millions of consumer model crts, preferably from Sony Trinitron line NEC or similar tube quality, with component video input since the you can just get an jamma scart rgb and a rgb scart to component/vga. If you try to use a modern TV you will spend a small fortune on converters that provide a inferior picture and Gameplay quality. If you have issues fitting a 19-24" crt in your house, apartment or whatever, you need to stop spending money on games and pc stuff and focus on moving out of that microwave box you're living in under your local bridge.

  • Nice! it would be interesting if you do a video showing conection to regular Composite CRT TV from PC. from hdmi or vga to composite. true 240p signal using CRU to make 15hz resolutions or crtEmuDrivers. And to PC crt using super resolutions or native resolutions at 120hz thru CRU or emuDrivers to make it work on 31Kz monitors. All this for emulators primarly but also retro styled games like, sonic mania (424x240 or 320x240 if you change settings to 4:3 support), shovel knight(400x240), Streets of Rage 4 (400x240) etc. The idea it to get the original ntsc composite "defects" used by game developor back then to make transparencies and more colors and stuff. I believe that pvm or pc crts rgb make the image a bit "too clean" for that generation of consoles (genesis/snes/famicom)

The comment about storing them vertical like one would a vinyl record though makes me think, I dont think it would be too hard to make some sort of quick disconect mounting thing to be able to put it up on a wall, sorta like those shadowboxes made for vinyl.
