  1. Awesome, thanks. Appreciate the reply and the link - wasn't aware of that ARpiCADE page. Will have a gander now :)
  2. Hi all - been a looooooong time since I've been in here. I have one of Dylan's JAMMA Pi's. I have 3.5 (I think) with a raspberry pi 2 maybe that I bought back in 2016. I know it's may seem a bit lazy, but rather than me reading through 100 pages or since I last checked, has there been any major updates. The first page post still shows the 3.5 software as being current.
  3. Hi everyone, I have a Jamma Pi board and with raspberry pi (3) & micro SD card etc I bought from the creator (Dylan) via this site. I'm wanting to sell the board and pi together. Any interest?
  4. Posting the end result. I got my coin slot sticker from Noodle Shirt - looks great can't tell difference from an original [emoji41] http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160916/e73970b815d50f6fb05cc8ecca6a0097.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  5. Hey Carson, If I was looking at getting a new 2 player / 6 button each control panel and the overlay as well for my LAI lowboy – is that something you could make? My existing control panel is a 3 button converted to 6 button... thinking to get a new one made.
  6. Just wondering if anybody knows an Aussie source for one of these? It's to connect a CPS2 kick harness wired cab to a multiboard (e.g. Raspberry JAMMA.) Thanks in advance
  7. (Source: http://www.racketboy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?nomobile=1&f=22&t=48943 ) Saw this neat Supergun board has little acrylic covers top & bottom... anybody here made something like this protect their Raspberry JAMMA? Reckon it would be a good idea.
  8. Can't wait to see the NoodleShirt vinyl applied [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  9. Probably some of the best money I've spent - getting lots of value from it. When I get time I might list some of emulators that worked best for me with certain games to add to the Google Doc I saw before which is sparsely populated with info at the moment.

  10. JAMMA board from Raspberry PI Had a small issue with the DAC (digital to analogue convertor) that has been sorted :) awesome response time. Couldn't go back to Pandora clone after using this so it's good to get her back in time for the weekend Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  11. 645 in 1 Just get yourself the raspberry Pi3 JAMMA board sold on this page - it's $232 express post shipped & can run whatever games you want from an SD card. It runs games without noticeable screen tearing & plays much better than the 645-in-1. Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  12. I'd love to see SNES emulation added in like Picodrive too [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  13. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160830/773a10b5afd107f9dafc8fcc76b75fda.jpg Just tried via HDMI & colours output perfectly so it's probably just a weak connexion with that convertor box as you said Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade

I hadn't changed any settings or anything just occurred mid game. After thinking it was my monitor dying and putting back in my previous multiboard I've discovered it's somewhere on the video connexion part of the Pi board. Anybody else had this? By disconnecting the VGA port and reconnecting it resolved it before but not anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  15. Cannot find an answer in the thread - has anybody else got a problem with AdvanceMenu being extremely small & unreadable using the Arpicade 3.5 img from here? I'm stuck using Attract-Mode for now..
  16. Is it for a cabinet your keeping or for using to sell one? If it's for yourself I'd recommend Raspberry Jamma - sold by a guy on this forum. I just got one to replace my Pandora clone board & it's much better emulation Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  17. Yea - I've found the front end is not as easy to use as Pandora clone xxx in 1 and the soft-ware set up a bit harder... But, when you're actually playing a game it is HEAPS better. To me that's the most important aspect :) Plus I don't have to scroll past ten different hacked versions of the same game - just the good games, no filler.
  18. Apple Pi Baker I've used Apple Pi Baker to create a backup of my ARpiCADE 3.5 image with ROMs & then successfully copy it to another microSD so that if I accidentally change an important setting or corrupt my card I have a usable backup ready to go. Works perfect on Mac OS X El Capitan http://www.tweaking4all.com/software/macosx-software/macosx-apple-pi-baker/
  19. Hi - do you have an img for this that I could put onto an SD card? :)
  20. JAMMA board from Raspberry PI I received my Raspberry JAMMA + Pi3 yesterday from dee2eR. Thought I'd share my experience with it, I am upgrading from a Pandora clone (Heroes of the Storm 2) 619 in 1 multiboard. Installation was extremely simple as my JAMMA / cab was already wired for 6 buttons (jamma+).. removed the Heroes of the Storm board & connected this. I wish it was provided with some ROMs myself, but it's SD card based so that part isn't hard once I found the text file User Guide on the SD card provided. The only thing I couldn't find was how to enter in the settings menu on ROMs that are running via the FBA emulator (Start + F1 , found that by reading through this whole thread). Normally pressing TAB on a USB keyboard brings up settings for each game. I found with Neo Geo games it was helpful to be able to go into the Slider options and reduce the vertical scaling to about 0.936. I glitched mine last night by changing the Theme in Attract Mode to one that caused it to freeze and now won't reboot (the front end that is installed and boots as the default) so I know I will have to wipe SD card & start again as I can't figure out how to edit selected Attract Mode theme when I can't get into it :( Also exiting games by pressing Start + Button 3 often seems to try to exit Attract Mode or launch a different game - not sure why, but the front end seems to have some bugs and so it's not always smooth going back & forth between games. I think the software isn't quite 'plug-n-play', but it also is not as difficult as it first seemed The build quality of the PCB seems good. I might rewire the volume control away from the board some time. It would be a great idea if somebody could develop a 3D printed plastic case to protect the whole thing from bumps & dust. As for the most important part – gameplay : games play MUCH BETTER than on the previous Pandora type board I had. I tested a few games that I was really unhappy with the performance with on that and they run very smooth on the Pi3. e.g. many of the side-scrolling beat 'em ups had dreadful screen tearing before, now they run brilliantly - Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Final Fight, The Punisher, Golden Axe (none of the sound issues that ruin it on the Pandora box). I also threw a bunch of Neo Geo games at it and they run great (Mutation Nation, Spinmaster, Windjammers, Metal Slugs) –*unlike the Pandora, this gives you access to the SOFT DIP settings so you can set Windjammers match times to a decent amount of time :) I think for the price, $232 shipped inc Pi3 & 8GB SD card - it's well worth it. It is a MASSIVE upgrade in emulation quality from the Pandora xxx in 1 type boards. The fact it's so customisable means there's more that can go wrong software wise and there are some bugs with attract mode. (so I should make a backup of my SD card when I reinstall this time). The ability to be able to curate your own selection of games and have them running 'arcade perfect' (in my eyes) is very good value. Would highly recommend to anybody sitting on the fence.
  21. This sounds great – be very keen to see this alternative. The advantage of SD card based multliboard is I could just use another card to try this set up :)
  22. So I got my pi3 + Raspberry Jamma. Started adding a few roms, all worked well until I went into the tab menu and selected a different theme – obviously not compatible with attract mode on raspberry jamma, wish it had been tested/removed beforehand..... :( anybody know how to edit the selected theme so I can get back into attract mode again?
  23. Thanks urbangangsta101. Mine should be arriving this week - once I download & organise my roms how I like I'll comment that part out. Have you tried any other emulators in attract mode besides mame? Thinking about running MegaDrive/NES/SNES in attract mode as well.... [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
  24. Tested it with a Sanwa button I had (I put Sanwa buttons into my Dreamcast arcade sticks) - didn't fit, think my holes must be 28-29mm.... what a shame. The ones I've got look like MCA buttons but they're not genuine ones - if you hit them in the centre they work well, but if you hit them on one side (the side opposite the microswitch underneath), they go down & spring back up without registering a "hit".... have to get something better eventually or dremel out the hole.
  25. How did you find them in the end? I like the Sanwa buttons myself & was thinking to put them into my LAI lowboy. Does anybody here know if they fit into a standard LAI control panel? Think the holes are 30mm but haven't measured and maybe somebody here knows from experience... Sent from my iPhone using Aussie Arcade
