            Gday,

            I've never set one of these up - my 60-in-1 has just arrived and I'm still building my cabinet.

            Having said that, do you have a JAMMA harness? What cab is it going in? What are you using as a Power Supply?

            Cheers!

              ive got my cab, I have it all set up from before, running snow bros on jamma harness, preeeeeeeeeetty sure they have given me a kick harness for extra buttons, have all the buttons and microswitches set up, just need to connect them to the harness, as well as make sure im not ****ing up a expensive piece of equipment

              and they provide a power supply as well as the standard one which was in the cab to begin with

                I'd be doing the following:
                • Check you have the correct harness
                • Connect the additional buttons to the harness
                • If unsure about wiring, grab a multimeter to test with
                • plug in harness
                • turn it on and test


                Provided your not running any power through the harness, from what I understand, you cant really go wrong.

                Is there something your specifically concerned about?

                Cheers

                  im just concerned really about my lack of knowledge, and it talks briefly about ****ing it up and damaging it ra ra ra and there goes my board. I just dont know enough about it as im pretty sure i need to solder the 4th button now onto the jamma harness as well as connect up the last 2 buttons. its just a lot of know how which i dont have regarding arcade machines. My goal/hope is to have it all done by next week, so hoping someone close will be able to pipe up and lend me a hand

                    Howdy,

                    Assuming this is the manual for your xxxx-in-1, it should have come with a "kick" harness for the additional buttons.

                    You'll need this for buttons 5 and 6. Wire the buttons to the corresponding pins on the kick harness. These buttons should share the ground from the kick harness.

                    Button 4 will need to be wired into the JAMMA harness - the manual will show the pinout to be used for this.

                    The button wiring - You'll want to connect the COM from the button to the ground of the harness. The other wire should be connected to N.O. (Normally Open).

                    As I said earlier - I havent reached this stage with my cab, so I'm going to throw this out to those more knowledgable...

                    All the best

                    Maz

                      I am not sure but wouldnt there be a slight difference between different multi game systems, eg The RED BOX vs the 1066 etc.

                      I have the "RED BOX" from Game Dude and that was pretty easy to hook up.
                      Wouldnt have a clue about the others.
