Aussie Arcade Migration to IPS4 Roadmap

I'm just putting this here as a reminder to myself what needs to be done. I've had nothing but positive feedback from the new IPB4 Forum software so there's no point delaying the migration.
  • AA's main site will be down for a least 24 to 48 hours during the process. I'll probably start it tomorrow the 30th or Saturday.
  • Set up IPB4 on main site and do a basic configuration.
  • Start migration (Could take up to 24 hours)
  • Once migration is done rebuilding tasks will start running, attachments, posts etc. This is another VERY long process however the forum can be reopened and function normally however posts will look messed up with missing attachments, text formatting, quotes etc
  • Before the forum reopens usergroups and forum permissions will need to be set and I need to remember to disable post moderation. To make life easy I'll only be retaining the paid subscriptions, Super Moderator and Member group. Every other user group will be merged into Members so I can get the forum up and running

Future of AA (Please Read)

It's been over a year and a half since "upgrading" to Vbulletin 5 and to say its been a disappointment is a understatement partly due to it feeling like a downgrade in some area's and missing a lot of features other forum software has standard and partly due to some people struggling with the software especially attachments, I also feel a lot of features have been left unfinished like the Calendar.
I went with VB5 over other forum software at the time because I expected the migration to be smooth....how wrong was I. I spent the first week from 6am to 10pm trying to address issues and even longer getting it to where it is now. I could have spent that time migrating to another forum platform.

I'm looking to moving AA to Invision Community or Xenforo however leaning heavily towards Invision due to its standard features. The end goal is to have a simplified user friendly experience.
Some key features that caught my eye are

Vale Yee Fong - AA users Rocky2 and founder of NZ Pincade. We lost a great mate.

I am absolutely gutted to pass on the sad news that one of the great workers and doers and best all-round blokes of the pinball community, Yee Fong, lost his long battle with cancer earlier today.

Yee was known to AA as Rocky2 and was the driving force behind New Zealand Pincade for a decade and a half. He worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make NZ Pincade the international success that it is, an event enjoyed by pinball friends from NZ, Australia, USA, Canada, France, Sweden, the list goes on. Yee was the sort of bloke who turns up to a pinball event like the Australian Pinball Expo or the Barn Meet a week early and works alongside the organizers to help make it a success. He worked on his own time and never asked for pay, except perhaps in the form a beer or two which most of us were happy to share with him. Yee seldom asked for much but often gave of himself.

To those who know him, we know that we have lost a friend the like of which is impossible to...

    Yeah I've only suggested the Pi2Jamma as op wants to use a pi as his engine so to speak so much easier.

    Personally I prefer to use a PC so your control interface options are much wider. I've never used the XinMo's but I know plenty do without issue. IF you want to use a PC and Jamma interface then its hard to go past a jpac imo especially if you also use an arcade monitor

    Cheers,

    2 Player Zin - Mo maybe another option for you guys? I have PC based mame cabs & use USB encoder for single player they work fine, design is not great though, they can short easy (at least cover up the exposed solder side with some foam or something? that's what I did anyway) USB connector seems a bit iffy on 1 of mine too.

    For my 2 sticks 14 buttons panel I used the Zin - Mo (2 player version) & its just a better product + only uses one USB for the 2 controllers.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/26491214...53.m2749.l2649

    I don't have RPI just going off this "Compatible with win10/win8/win7/vista/XP/2000/98, Linux, PS3, Linux, MAC, Android, Raspberry Pi; "

    That's just my 2 cents worth though guys & Brad knows his stuff so I have no doubt that's the best option....

    I'm slowly building more and have a lot of little extras coming I will show later as the build goes on.

    I am in discussion with a manufacture about a production run of a 2L16B panel.
    These panels are based of the Sega Virtual Stick Pro for the Saturn (currently retailing for 1k AUD) and are the newer 8 button layouts seen in all modern fight sticks.
    I worked with Franco from Arcade Otaku using the Virtua Stick Pro and SlagCoin templates to make the cad file years ago and the panel will be the closest one you can get to a official panel.

    This build has been super slow so never got around to using it,.
    Looking around no-one really has the ability to make these panels as a one off, talking to SanStarGame the minimum for a custom CAD file is 50 orders, I suggested to June we could do a public run of these panels which she has agreed and is organising a pre order listing now I can link around.

    Once I get the link within the week, I will...

  • Sega force feedback pcb repair
    by perjmolsen
    Hi

    The one side of my sega scud race has no force feedback.

    When I boot the game I get driver board error.
    And the segment on the pcb displays ER 02
    if I swap the two pcb's between the cabinets I move the fault, so it is this pcb that have the error.

    I have changed the three electrolytic caps on the pcb, but that did not solve the issue, also I have reseated the two socket chips.

    Does any have an idea of how to troubleshoot this pcb? Or have a spare working that I can buy?...

    Yes it will, I'm just trying to get out of throwing a pico power supply into this project if I can get away with it.

    I guess I'm just going to have to try hooking the multigame board up with both 5 and 12 volts and do the following tests.....

    Disconnect the 12 volts and see if there is still an audio output on the headphone jack...If there is, I'll just use a 5 volt regulator for the 5 volts and use a USB powered set of speakers for the sound and get the sound from the headphone jack rather than the Jamma speaker connections.




    I do have a couple of varieties of similar DC to DC converters...both step up and step down.
    The one you linked to is a step up. These type of DC to DC converters come in two varieties as well as just set up or step down....Stable or non stable.

    An example of a non stable type is 5volts in and you can set the output to say 12 volts but if the 5 volts in goes higher, so does the 12 volts...

    An update...

    I managed to score on Gumtree a full working machine similar to mine so I now have 2 projects (thanks wiredoug).

    Although the new one is fully working, the original cabinet is much better so have decided to concentrate on firstly getting one fully working / restored cab happening and to that end I have been busy sanding, painting, etc.

    Will post some pics soon.

    Have also made some new artwork and am having some new cabinet side decals made. They are pretty close to the original.

    Shouldn't the car pc power supply smooth out to a constant 12v even when charging the battery ?
    would be a neat fit also no wires flopping about

    or another option if you only need 5V

    That was exactly what I used on the last battery powered multigame machine I made, a car PC power supply....battery power in and regulated 12 and 5 volts out like this one.......

    I de-soldered the ATX connector off the last one and soldered the wires direct to the pads on the board. Pico power supplys they are called.

    I do have another one but I don't really want to use it if I don't really need to. This time I want to try using one of these that I have for the 5vDC......

    So that just leaves the 12 volts. If it was powered off a constant around 13 volts, I'd just grab the 12 volts off it but because the battery when charging goes up to around 14-14.5 volts and when the battery is discharged can drop down to 11.5 volts, that is why I'm a little concerned whether...

  • Jpac or jpac-c or something else?
    by Oss88
    Hi all

    long time reader first time poster. Please be nice

    So I picked up a used chewlix. It has the usual pandora box (5s) setup with a jamma. The lcd is connected up via a vga port.

    I want to alternate or alternatively ditch the pandora box, and have an rpi4 running instead.

    I’m just wondering which interface is best and whether a jpac would work as plug and play? At this stage I really just need the 2 player 6 buttons, so another option may be a jpac-c or even an ipac.

    At this stage in trying to avoid hacking away at the wires if it can be avoided with a simple plug and play type interface.

    Many thanks!

    Yes, I think you´re right that it probably doesn´t go anywhere else and the sound amp should cope with that range.

    The only other thing I can think of which would be 12V is any coin meters but outputs for those on the PCB would just be open collectors and not connected to the +12V rail anyway....

    Hi, if the board has been correctly strapped for 2k EPROMs one of the ´TV´ ROMsets should work, the one labelled in MAME as ´sitv´ has the following checksums according to the MAME driver:-

    If you haven´t already, you should add a socket to the empty space at location M1 on the PCB for the 4th EPROM

    Problem I have is both the 5volt and 12 will be coming off a 12 volt battery. 5 volt goes through a regulator but to regulate the 12volt off a 12 volt battery is a tad more difficult. Need 3 volts drop for a regulator to work. I can do that by using a buck inverter to raise the battery voltage higher than the 3 volts drop a 12volt regulator requires but if the 12 volts does only drive the sound amp and it can run according to the data sheet from 6volts to 36volts, I don't need the 12 volts regulated I wouldn't think.

    Max voltage I'm expecting on the battery is 14.8volts when charging and lowest would be 11.5volts so that would be what the 12 volts being feed to the board is likely to vary between....

    I think so, I recall someone having a ´no sound´ issue on one whch turned out to be no +12V though the rest of the functions were apparently working OK. It should be possible to confirm that if you have one there, power it up with +5V only and double check everything else works...

    by Railways

    Used Bally Playboy playfield. It's from a game that we are fitting a new playfield during it's "tidyup".

    See pics for condition. Sometime in its life someone had done a terrible job at fitting mylar over the whole playfield including over the top of some ball swirl . I've manage to remove the mylar with no paint loss and deglued it. It does have some loose inserts. The most noticeable area of wear is the usual down the grotto area.

    Will be shipped at your expense in the same CPR box the new PF came in.

    Nice wall hanging or could be repaired by someone that has the necessary talent.

    Asking $300

  • How to identify a front panel connectors header on a Pentium motherboard?
    by kadeath
    Hi all!

    I need some help with this dilemma.
    I am resurrecting an original Pentium I motherboard from 1997. It is in excellent condition and everything works, but I am not sure where to plug all my front panel gear (like HDD LED, RESET button, etc).
    The board in question does not have a brand name on it, all it says in big letters that it is "P20" then under it "EP40206R100" then "REV 1.0" under it. Nothing else.
    I spent ages on Google trying to find any mention of it, or any pic of it, to no avail.
    I found the double row header in question (P1) where everything plugs on the front of the board, but for once, there is no indication where anything goes, just numbers from 1 to 22 and that's all no other legend.
    Does anyone have any idea where to go from here? I am kinda exhausted my options.

    Thanks!

    5 volts is good, just want to know how high the 12 volts can be. On board sound amp is a TDA 2003. Data sheet for the amp says...

    TDA2003 is a general-purpose 10W amplifier IC that can be used in stereo or mono audio design circuits. The amplifier can output upto 3.5A current to drive speakers and can also handle high current upto 5A for shorter duration without any damage. It can also handle short circuits in both AC and DC rail without killing itself. It has an operating voltage of 18V but can handle high voltage up to 28V. This makes it robust to be used in automotive audio designs.

    by Arcade King
    I'm just putting this here as a reminder to myself what needs to be done. I've had nothing but positive feedback from the new IPB4 Forum software so there's no point delaying the migration.
    • AA's main site will be down for a least 24 to 48 hours during the process. I'll probably start it tomorrow the 30th or Saturday.
    • Set up IPB4 on main site and do a basic configuration.
    • Start migration (Could take up to 24 hours)
    • Once migration is done rebuilding tasks will start running, attachments, posts etc. This is another VERY long process however the forum can be reopened and function normally however posts will look messed up with missing attachments, text formatting, quotes etc
    • Before the forum reopens usergroups and forum permissions will need to be set and I need to remember to disable post moderation. To make life easy I'll only be retaining the paid subscriptions, Super Moderator and Member group. Every other user group will be merged into Members so I can get the forum up and running

    by namastepat
    Well, I got super lucky this week and managed to snag the PS5 I have been waiting for.

    I also picked up a new LG C1 OLED screen to get the most out of the new console. It's a 120hz 4k screen and it looks beautiful.

    Suffice to say, I am totally blown away by the PS5. I grabbed two games with it, Demon's Souls and Returnal. Demon's Souls is a game I played originally on PS3 and totally loved it, so going back to it on PS5 is just phenomenal. The graphics and gameplay are pure souls brilliance and I cannot wait to keep playing it.

    Returnal is what I am going home to play tonight though. Holy crap, this is truly a next-gen experience. The graphics and sound are just amazing. However, it's the haptic feedback on the dual sense controller that really makes it feel next-gen. When you first start the game, you are on an alien planet, standing in the rain. You can literally feel each raindrop patter on the controller as they fall. This is not a vibration,...
