  • 32X Cab up and running !!!

    After a few mishaps, I have finally nailed this.

    I finished up fully remaking the SCART-JAMMA harness using a new JAMMA fingerboard from the states.

    The 32X-SCART cable I had before turned out not to work on 2nd use (sync wire was loose) asked ebay seller how to open it up to fix, and he sent me a free replacement from UK !!! Legend.

    The controls are now fully wired for player1. I'll see what I can bodge for player2 later.

    The sound is the next step. I have removed the old amp I made and am building a stereo amp kit from Dick Smith. Hopefully it will have enough power to run these speakers. I suspect it will.
    ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

        No worries, let me know when it gets there.

        For all the bad things you hear about Aus post, they really surprise me with there quality of service. Don't ask why, but when i mailed myself a letter from sydney cbd it was at my place by the next morning. That's pretty damn quick.

          Yeah, Australia post is pretty good. Unlike the UK postal service.,..
          just look at what happened to a package my bro sent over (it didnt even get out of the UK before getting trashed)
          BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When your down here with us, you'll float too!

            The weirdest thing i had happen was i bought a cable from someone in Poland. Anyway after a couple months it hadn't turned up and i emailed the guy asking about it and he said he sent it off already. I don't usually believe people when they say that, but i did believe this guy because he had 100% feedback and i just had a gut feeling.

            A year later after i had completely forgotten about it, the cable arrives and the postage was stamped from the original day of purchase. How can something go missing for a year?

              If it comes by ship (the cheapest way) it can take months...maybe that could streatch to a year.

              WWF RAW 32X arrived today Will check it out. Very happy that it has the instructions...now I may be able to figure the bastard out.

                Yeah i've had a few things shipped over before, but usually they only take 8-10 weeks max.

                Glad to hear raw arrived, let me know what you think of it. I wasn't overly impressed but then again i'm not really a wrestling fan. I just feel like it's closer to a megadrive game then a 32bit system like playstation in terms of graphics.

                    Sat down at 5pm yesterday to make this damn amp...after searching for drills and drill bits, etc, etc, bloody etc, I finally got the thing to the point where all it needed was the internal wiring...looked at the clock WTF?!?! That took 3 hours!?! Project delayed till this arvo. LMAO
                    ------------------
                    OK. Public health warning for all fellow AussieArcaders attempting to build an amp...take VERY careful note of polarity of both on/off switches and volume potentimeters when you wire them. Other wise you may just make the mistake I just did by testing with marked setting of OFF/MIN VOLUME, which is actually ON/TIT RIPPING LOUD !!!

                    Take special note of above if you are using 12V instead of the rated 9V for your amp !!! (Like I just did)
                    -------------------

                    Now all I need is a decent marquee !!!

                      Long ago when I first got my cab, I knew that it had a higher calling than playing Raiden. I knew that the gaming gods had a special purpose for this cab. Now I have found that purpose, that game....

                      AFTER BURNER II COMPLETE

                      ...this 32x cart arrived from the UK yesterday. I put it on, expecting yet another cheesy nothing-like-the-arcade crap fest with the After Burner name slapped on it. Oh shit, was I wrong !!!! This is arcade perfect !!! The music rocks, its sampled straight from the arcade version.

                      This is excellent !!!! The poms can have the ashes, I got one of their Afterburner Complete carts...we are waaaaaaaay in front.

                          Being new here, where can I find this stuff? I'd love to have Bubble Bobble (dont flame me! hehe), Double dragon or Cabal sitting in my games room.

                            Ask in the for sale / wanted section for whos recommended over on the west coast. I am sure you will find some good stuff. You also have eBay.

                            If you like Bubble Bobble, here's an alternate http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?...M&game_id=8712
