    The dream as a 14 yo kid is now a reality!

    Here it is, the project cab is fully functional with the shifter operational!

    Time to get better times!



    I started doing a clean up and sorting things together and then I realise why I take so long with that process, it's been cause I crimp and connect everything! If I wired directly, it won't take so bloody long!

    Here's the jamma harness with its 3 main connections... The rgb sync, the vr buttons and the gear shifter. Everything else is not required for this cabinet.



    The other connection of the vr buttons is for the pac drive. Again, here's a class example of having the ability to wire directly to the terminal strip, but I made a connector!



    With this project pretty much coming to a close, I'm only left with figuring out a speaker system and the aesthetics (which I'm not too overly fussed about just yet), there's a few people that I need to give massive shout outs to:

    - Greg for selling me the project cab for a whole 150 and even delivering it from Goulburn to Sydney! Massive, massive props there!
    - aganyte (for creating the L2M2 and making it publicly available! Without this item, none of this would have been possible)
    - Andyj965/homepin for translating Aganyte’s schematic and making them readily available for people in AU! Also providing a wealth of advice and tips during the whole build
    - raysco for selling me his L2M2 kits!
    - Jomac for everything crt related - probably saved me putting this cab on fire since I was very close to using an Allen key to fix the horizontal size of the crt - apparently that's one of the biggest no no's EVER!
    - telino for his RamjetVR thread - that made my life so much easier
    - ozmodsticks for supplying me my JPAC, pac drive and jamma harness
    - rs components for their abundance array of connectors and crimps
    - elvis/namastepat/tiff_lee for their general advice on crt, software and electrical
    - vandal from byoac for tipping me off about the m2 emulator constantly crashing and how to fix it.
    - bandicoot from byoac for tipping me off about the CW and CCW wires to fix my centering issues on the ffb wheel

    And finally, the biggest shout out has to go to ryan555! Mate you helped me out in more ways than I can count, I know I got quite annoying with the stupid questions on things that were right in front of me. But you were heaps patient and responsive. Your 3 wire to 4 wire circuit also made connecting the gear shifter a simple task. I honestly dont think I would've made progress as much as I did if it wasn't for your help. Thank you very much!

    To others that I may have missed, I apologise in advance, and to those that have stuck around in the thread, thank you guys as well!

    The next major challenge is going to be software and what actual games to run as I've only really cared about daytona

    Thought I'd give an update on this thread for those subbed and not across the issue I had with my chassis..

    I posted on this thread about 3 weeks ago stating I had issues with my chassis https://www.aussiearcade.com/showthr...6-Dead-chassis.

    I had a spare MS9 29" chassis and Toshiba tube which would have been perfect for the cab, but I unfortunately didn't have the skills to fabricate the correct mounts as the LAI cab did not have the correct spacers for a 29" monitor (since it was made with a 26" in mind). The monitor definitely fits, I just couldn't get the mounts in the correct spots - the top brace would've need some modification too which I didn't want to really do.

    So, I did what any other person in AU would do with a dead chassis - send it to Jomac!

    We went from this:



    Back to this last night!



    I think between my brother and I, we spent what would have been around 50 bux if we played this at the arcade... nothing like the comfort of your home and a couple of cold drinks on the side
