    RaspberryJAMMA - up to date information


    I'm going to try and keep all the latest info here in one simple post to save people the hassle of trawling through the huge thread for info.

    ### HARDWARE INFO ###
    RaspberryJAMMA is a Raspberry Pi JAMMA adaptor that converts a RPi into a true JAMMA board, intended for you to do whatever it is you want with it with no hardware lag and scanline accurate low res output. No modification to your JAMMA cab is required (unless you want to add a kick harness). It can be configured for normal JAMMA (w/ optional kick harness) or for 6 buttons on JAMMA via dipswitches. Video out is RGBS on JAMMA or can be reconfigured to output higher resolutions through VGA. The board features amplified mono sound or line level stereo can be used (only one at a time, although a splitter may work...).

    RaspberryJAMMA v3 is available now, PM me for sales.
    My current prices (in Aussie dollars) are: $145 without a Pi, or $215 with a Raspberry Pi 3 and 16gig sd card included. If you want a larger SD card PM for more details, if you already have an SD card the software is free to download. As a guide economy air mail costs: Australia (Express Post)/NZ $10, North America $15, Europe $20, anywhere else PM me for a quote. Add $8 for air mail with tracking.

    Now also available through www.highscoresaves.com if you're in North America this is probably the easiest way to get a RaspberryJAMMA.

    ### SOFTWARE INFO ###
    ARpiCADE 3.83: https://arpicade.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=766

    ARpiCADE 3.811 (full image with fixups applied).

    ARpiCADE 3.8 (full image release, 4.35GB download extracts to make an 8 gig SD card image) (more info in post 1491 page 150 of the stupid big thread https://www.aussiearcade.com/showthr...86#post1144886 )


    advmame config files fixup for 3.8:
    just unzip and copy the contents to /boot/config-updater (you need both the update.sh script and the folder 3.811_fixupdate with all it's contents). The update can then be installed through the update option of the service menu.

    ARpiCADE 3.72 update (requires 3.71 sd card) available from arpicade.com (this uses a different hotkey system to previous releases as well as a new version of Attract-Mode with the keyboard bug fixed & a new audio bug...).

    ARpiCADE 3.71 update (requires a 3.7 SD card to update) (info here: http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthre...rry-PI/page138 post #1378 )

    ARpiCADE 3.7 (10 part download)

    EXTRA SETUP FILES for v3.1:

    Current instructions are included in the image.
    Older v3.1 software instructions can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Iq...s2bpBaOq5SDUSA

    Retropie 4.0.2 for RaspberryJAMMA:
    (it's in three parts and will need to be resized once you have it on the sd card so there's usable space. Other than adding the joystick driver and setting it to 480i it's vanilla Retropie and will require all the standard sort of Retropie stuff. I have no intention of supporting this image, I do not use it, if help is needed with it check out the Retropie site/forums (unless it directly has to do with the RaspberryJAMMA hardware).)

    VIDEO OF SOFTWARE (running vertical, not uploaded by me, thanks):

    If you want to try and make any other RPi images RapberryJAMMA friendly the GPIO control module for the JAMMA adaptor can be downloaded here:
    it needs to go into /usr/src (on Raspbian, it may vary for other builds) and be built and installed using DKMS, check out https://github.com/recalbox/mk_arcade_joystick_rpi for more details as it is this driver with a slightly different config.
