Welp, bought some candy cabs

Post by Merk » Thu Sep 13, 2018 8:41 am

Ayyyyy what's going on IndyDDR? I got my hands on two New Astro City candy cabs yesterday and I don't know what the fuck I'm doing with them. I'm going to get a CPS3 board and run Third Strike on them but in the meantime I was going to turn em into MAME cabinets for when randos inevitably come over and want to play games that aren't fighting games for old people.

I don't really know what I need to do to MAME these mofos out. My assumption is that I build a little dedicated MAME PC, buy a J-PAC, connect my PC to the JAMMA wiring via the J-PAC and then shit just sort of works. What am I overlooking?

This doesn't help you but I told my coworker who wants a 4-player MAME cabinet I would investigate for him so if anything helpful is posted here I am also curious

Welp it looks like some dude in Germany makes a Jamma2Pi circuit board so the plan now is to load up a bunch of shit onto a Raspberry Pi, connect it to the Jamma2Pi, and just kinda hope everything works!
