  1. The RaspberryJAMMA v3 works fine on Pi4 with a CRT. Actually any non-mini version of RaspberryJAMMA will work, all you need is a HDMI to HDMI micro adaptor to convert an older board OR you can use a DAC with a micro HDMI lead. The only trick is to use the Pi4 version of ARpiCADE. Long story short, I have boards in stock that will do what you want...
  2. I have 1 red Aimtrak for sale, the non recoil model. Has the original box and LED bar. Line of sight accurate as long as you use them from the position you calibrate them in. $100 + $15 postage UPDATE: SOLD, no longer available
  3. @Doosh no the RaspberryJAMMA mini probably isn't what you want then as it has nothing onboard for low res video. The regular RaspberryJAMMA (v3) would work perfectly for your Hankin, it has no problems with CRTs.
  4. Figured I'd announce the RaspberryJAMMA mini here in the arcade section as I don't think there's much traffic in the RaspberryJAMMA section. I hope no-one minds. 6 buttons on JAMMA, amplified mono sound. DAC for VGA output optional. Hard gold plated for edge connector longevity. All through hole parts for long term serviceability. High quality PCB, made in Australia. Now available directly from me, price $80 without DAC (suits HDMI or DVI use, audio must be re-routed in the ARpiCADE software to output from RPi analog output for JAMMA audio), $100 including DAC (VGA video and possibly better quality audio, audio output of DAC may just be louder than RPi analog output rather than higher quality but seems to sound better to me). Post is $14 anywhere in Australia via Express post. Please note: the RaspberryJAMMA mini does not support the RaspberryJAMMA Four Player Adaptor. raspberryjamma.com / arpicade.com
  5. RaspberryJAMMA mini is now available. $80 without DAC (will only be able to output HDMI or DVI video, audio needs to be redirected in the software to the RPi analog output to use amplified JAMMA mono), $100 with a DAC. (Aussie dollars) Unlike the proto the final production version has hard gold plating. The RJ mini hardware supports any Pi version with 40pin GPIO, although the current versions of the ARpiCADE software only support Pi2 or 3 variations (ARpiCADE 3.X.1) and Pi4s (ARpiCADE 4.3.1). It's high res only but high res CRT should work fine using VGA.
  6. Just finished prototyping a smaller, sleeker, more streamlined RaspberryJAMMA, the RaspberryJAMMA mini... perfect for todays modern high res JAMMA cab about town. Gone are the days of low res video sections left unused. No more unsightly ribbon cable and kick harness. No weird add-on (32x-like, ewww) four player board support. Six buttons available on the JAMMA edge, amplified mono audio, DAC for VGA optional. Lower price (TBD). Still made in Australia. Coming soon.
  7. It should be, for 2 stick games you shoudl be able to set the sticks to be left and right joysticks using MAMEs menus. Whats happening, what game etc? I can look into it if you need me to.
  8. Yeah I've changed the way it works on Pi4 due to some differences. It now makes an empty textfile instead of an extra setting in config.txt The rotation options have been separated from the resolution options. It also has dedicated each way options as the config.txt flip screen trick used on earlier Pis doesn't work right on Pi4. It's now best to set rotation from the service menu (F4 or 'service' button, not the menu that loads if you press tab or 'test' - that's Attract-Modes options menu - if you rotated from there your description of whats happening makes more sense). I can't replicate the rotation issue you're having here. From the service menu vertical -ror flips one way ('top' of CRT on the left side) and vertical -rol flips the other ('top' of CRT on right side). What MAME version is playing horizontal?
  9. Looks like Attract-Mode is segfaulting for some reason... No idea why offhand. May just be bad luck flashing it (although normally there'd be some sort of error notification when flashing if that were the case), could be indicative of a dud SD card, if you have more trouble with it I'd try another one. Even if it worked though, grab 4.3 - it's a huge improvement. Once you're up and running vertical can be set from the service menu, there's rol and ror options so if it's upside down first attempt try the other one. EDIT: what Pi version are you using? Not sure if it will have anything to do with it but I'm curious...
  10. ARpiCADE 4.3.1 update now available in the 4.3 thread linked in my previous post. Big improvement to Naomi, Atomiswave and CPS3 at 240p. Plus config tweaks.
  11. ARpiCADE 4.3 (for Pi4) now available. Current MAME, Daphne, more available refresh rates, 4 player support and more! More details and links here: https://arpicade.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2591 Enjoy!
  12. I don't have an fully automated way to figure out the RPi pixel clock freq for a particular refresh rate. I think I could probably do it but haven't tried scripting it yet. Something I'll probably try in the future. One plus to using the set list is you can manually adjust the porch&pulse sizes to line up various resolutions, not sure how I could automate that side of things yet.
  13. I have encountered that. There also seems to be some cases where MAME reports 1 refresh rate in the info box at startup and a different refresh rate in the MAME menu once the game is up and running. I have also noticed a couple of games in MAME 0.78 that are being ran at different to original hardware refresh rates by MAME. On the scripting side of things I'm reading the game info from a reference file (same file shared by all MAME versions). Essentially the same logic you are using. Originally I was using the same reference file to check screen height, rotation etc. so it was easiest to simply continue doing it that way. Can't remember which MAME version I made the reference list from, I may have to update it. On ZSystem are you using a list of resolutions/refreshes or do you generate them dynamicly? (I still haven't found a way to automate making resolutions with accurate refresh rates for RPi, my method involves putting numbers into a spreadsheet and manually looking for good results... which is still better than how I was doing it before that....) If you are using a list of refresh rates how many refresh rates do you have to cover the full spectrum of MAME? (I think I'm up around 40 at this point).
  14. Also replied to your PM. Was a bit slow to this thread. The RaspberryJAMMA + four player adaptor should be plug and play in your TMNT cab. The software side of things will take a little bit of fiddling though to suit the lack of start buttons on that cab. I'll be happy to help if you need any if/when you go this route. For more info check out the RaspberryJAMMA bit in the sponsors section here on AA or have a look at the arpicade.com forums (the main page of the arpicade.com site is out of date...). I'm as local as you'l find it (Melbourne), the boards are both Australian made. Thanks to everyone for recommending me.
  15. No. Only the CD add on. If you're having trouble with the Genesis rom folder it may be worth trying the MegaDrive one as I use it. I don't think there's any difference but maybe I broke something... Otherwise if you're having rom torubles it's often spaces in the file names. Replacing spaces with underscores will fix it if that's the issue.
