Much better than the 60 in 1 pcb I had installed in my cabinet. Learning how to add and delete games that I want on it. The forums are great!
Easy way to get all the games using MAME.
Ordered the whole setup and was up and playing in less than 5 minutes! So awesome, thanks guys!
Why doesn't Highscoresaves ship this USPS anymore?
There are 2 reasons -
- This is because it isn't our product that we made here in the USA, but, a great product that someone else (Dylan) made and we are trusted to be the USA Distributor for it. We need to ensure that it arrives safely to each and every customer.
- We have noticed that USPS is having LONG delay times in customs for certain countries. This is due to the country's customs or due to the recent COVID-19. We have seen it take over 6 weeks to even leave the USA, so we only offer Premium International shipping. ie. UPS or DHL that take 2-5 business days and gets the required signature of receipt of package.
Can ArPiCADE support a JAMMA-wired joystick/button arrangement for a player 1 and a USB spinner and USB trackball on the same control panel? I'm thinking about a single cabinet that could play Pac-Man, Tempest and Missile Command using their respective original control inputs and be able to cycle back and forth between them seamlessly.
As long as the trackball/spinner is following the USB standards it should work. You can also convert standard arcade optical encoder parts with converters like the Opti-Wiz. Some setup may be required as only 1 mouse is setup by default.
I'm about to make my purchase, but wanted to double check that the Raspberry JAMMA set up will save high scores and initials for each game. Thanks for the help!!
In the end that comes down to the individual emulators. Most of the MAME versions included with ARpiCADE support high score saving. FBA has limited high score support on a range of the games that run well in FBA. Offhand, I think it's only MAME 0.192 that doesn't currently save scores. The most popular versions of MAME on RPi all save high scores.
I really want to buy this since it is very convenient for my stand-up arcade. Just plug in the jamma harness and boom, you're playing. I just have one doubt, can I use the HDMI port to connect my LCD on it? Or maybe even VGA cable on it?
I recommend using VGA output as you can still have amplified audio through the JAMMA edge. You could output HDMI to your monitor but it would have the audio signal on HDMI rather than feeding it back through to the JAMMA speaker.
I have a jamma cab that has a Pandora's Box connected currently. The Jamma harness I am using has wiring for 6 action buttons per player. If I use the same jamma harness with the arpicade, and use the dip switches, will it work with the 6 button harness or is the kick harness required to be used?
Possibly, yes, if you have a fully wired JAMMA harness that is set up for it. The kick harness is for those who do not, or, for those who like to use their cabinet for regular wired JAMMA. The 6 buton JAMMA layout you are speaking of is for pcbs like Pandora Box and the like, we like to call that "CHAMMA" (Chinese JAMMA in the arcade scene....
The ground wires are set a bit different and you may need to change that, however, the dip settings can be used to move it around without actually pulling and moving wires under your control panel. Guess, the only major issue would be ground. Click the box below
I have no idea how to hook this kick harness up. Is it trial and error? I tried to connect button 4 on player 1 to all six options. No luck yet.
Take a look at this pic (it's a zoom in from one of the gallery pics). This tells you which wire goes to what button on your control panel. NOTE - Buttons 4, 5 and 6 are the bottom row of 3 buttons from left to right foe each player. Think about a Street Fighter control panel, then it's the bottom row of buttons.
Ensure that you have a good ground wire. I would just tap off of the top row of buttons or the joystick. Look at your top row buttons to see which lug the kick harness goes to and which lug the ground wire should be on...
