"... a smaller, sleeker, more streamlined RaspberryJAMMA, the RaspberryJAMMA mini... perfect for todays modern high res JAMMA cab about town. Gone are the days of low res video sections left unused. No more unsightly ribbon cable and kick harness. No weird add-on (32x-like, ewww) four player board support."
Video out is off the Raspberry Pi itself (HDMI) or can be used with a DAC for VGA output (LCD/LED monitors).
This is a lower cost solution for your high resolution (LCD/LED monitor) arcade cabinet!
This is a "bare bone" Raspberry Pi JAMMA adapter. Compared to the "Original Arpicade" it is missing a few of the options of the full board.
- Cannot use CGA (Low Resolution) images
- Cannot be used with the 4 player adapter
- The controls are ALWAYS set to 6 buttons off your JAMMA harness (No dip switch options or Kick Harnesses)
This product is aimed more for the upgrade to a 60in1 / Pandoras Box cab crowd or perhaps even makers of new custom cabs than the vintage cab owners. I get it if it doesn't really interest you, no pressure, don't be dazzled by the gold pcb! They are actually gold plated (actually, it's "hard" gold over nickel) ;)
This is available without the DAC (although there is an option to purchase if you are using a LCD/LED flat screen monitor). If you are using HDMI, just plug it into the Pi itself!
Now, you CAN use a Pi4 with this pcb adapter!
Pi4 can play Killer Instinct, but needs overclocking and even then, not perfectly... as it stands I don't plan to include it in any images. In my opinion, the best thing about Pi4 is being about to run more games in newer MAME versions, unfortunately, the game list doesn't change too much but the emulation may be a bit better. It can play some games the Pi3 can't very well though, SEGA NAOMI works pretty nicely (mostly) on Pi4...
Great upgrade from Pandora’s Box
Purchased this along with the 5000 game SD card. Excellent after sale customer service which helped me work through a couple challenges. One initial challenge for me was being able to access the full game list - Player one button 2 returns to main wheel. Thanks highscoresaves.com!
Great little Rasp pi adapter
Thanks for this VGA only option!
Very easy to upgrade my 60-in-1 pcb
Took a few minutes to out together. I bought the vertical 700 game image. Loaded it into the Pi and poof! Instant upgrade from 60 games to over 700! Thanks Highscoresaves, very fast shipping
I want to use a monitor that is both HDMI one VGA plug. What should I do?
This is the perfect product for you!
You can plug the HDMI cable directly to the Pi from the monitor, or, you can purchase a DAC and use the 15 pin plug for High Resolution VGA.
Hope that helps!
so basically it will just handle the button mapping, no 15khz video and audio can come out from jamma edge right? it looks so nice, imagine it can output rgb and audio via jamma edge
The mini cannot do RGBS at the edge connector.
Amplified JAMMA mono sound is not a problem though. The one catch is without a DAC you need to connect the RPi analog output to the minis audio input and adjust the software to output the sound from the RPi analog rather than the HDMI port. On the command line this command will move the audio to the RPi analog output:
amixer cset numid=3 1
