I'm looking for a super gun with component. Will a jrok work with this? https://m.ebay.com/itm/Supergun-ProGame ... SwOyJX6pvu

Any jamma board will work with that. However that device does not have component. SCART and RGB only.

Can anyone please recommend a good external power supply to use with either HAS v3.1 or the deluxe retroelectronik superguns you see on eBay?

Thanks!

I use the Suzo Happ Power Pro with my HAS and it has served me well.

For the Retroelectronik Supergun I just use an atx power supply from an old computer tower, no issues of note with an mvs or pandora's box. Although the extra wires and the size of the brick leave me wanting a cleaner setup

I’m happy to be joining this supergun ponzi. I have some jamma boards and recently got a umk3 so I’m starting with that. I ordered a retroelectronik pro and have an extra mk control panel. (I have a weird setup with an x360 in a mk cab that plays mk9 and the mk collection) but I like playing on the real boards and got a few pvms recently so thought this would be a cool project. I’m a little concerned with sync, but who knows, I’ll hook it up and see what happens.

So
Umk3 pcb —> retroelectronik pro —> Sony pvm 1943md. (I also have a few non Sony ones I can try). My idea for this is put the board, a power supply, and the supergun board into a 2u server chassis and it will be a dedicated umk3 to rgb box. I’ll have another supergun for some other jamma boards I have.

Anyway I’ll report back once I get all the stuff to put this thing together and maybe I’ll run into some fun along the way and consult you guys. I have a friend who is good with electronics so might be able to get it done with just his help. We will see.

I’ve decided I want some custom control panels instead of using an original panel. The original it way too tall. I want something that can sit on a table or desk and be playable sitting down. So I’m looking for a builder to make some oversized control panels. One thing I don’t like about the original panel is I feel it is a bit cramped for 2 player. So two separate panels will alleviate that. I also plan to style one out with a mk2 look and another with a mk3 look. I don’t care much for the original game or 4. So I’ll work the run button into the mk2 style one so both panels can be used with either game. I found some mk2 and mk3 kit arcade artwork that was used for conversions back in the day and a newer style overlay for mk3. So I’ll piece together something so it will look like a conversion. I guess I could try to get someone to make custom artwork but I kind of like the idea of using the old original stuff where I can. It might turn out a little ghetto but should have some charm to it. The panel will be way bigger than your typical fightstick. Should be cool. I’ll document as I go. Adding up the costs I’m starting to realize this is a pretty expensive project.

I’ve been working out my MK supergun project more and I think I finally have it. What was missing was sound. When I thought about it one of the things that makes Mortal Kombat arcade great is feeling the hits. So my plan is mount 1 or 2 car type speakers on the control panels. Each panel will be way oversized so I should have space. I also found some sweet looking coin return type light up buttons so those are perfect for the coin function. Fun stuff.

Got my supergun board and my umk3 connected. The horizontal and vertical is not centered. Kind of annoying. I think there is an extron unit I could use in between to make adjustments like that easy. this forum doesn’t host images? That is so old school. What do you guys use?

I am pretty sure I went way over my head wanting to get involved in supergun/jamma/arcade. lol
I ended up buying the retroelectonik supergun.

I'll be using an MVS 1 or 4 slot, plus whatever jamma PCB games I'm able to get.
I want to use a dang arcade stick, but didn't research that well enough, basically not at all.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated in regards to controllers, adapters, arcade sticks, etc.

Does anyone have any experience using a picoPSU with a supergun?

It looks like it might be a good fit for my project (trying to stuff supergun and PSU inside a Hori Vewlix joystick case).

It's pretty weak, but might work for some systems. It did run my CPS2 without a problem (only tested for a short time though) but my CPS1 made it smell burnt and then the Pico PSU died. I did have it running off the official power brick too.

I have the retroelectronik pro board and I’m wondering about the “on con” terminals above the power connector. Is that for wiring a power switch and would I be fine using a pc power on switch for it or should I use something else?

Another question about the retroelectronik pro board if anyone knows. I’m assuming the video sync provided on the terminal is ttl and the sync on the scart output is 75 ohm C-Sync. Anyone know for sure? The scart output has to be configured for consumer grade. I have not heard about it killing anyone’s ossc or framemeister. Anyway I want to know because I want to use the terminal outputs and the scart output. The terminal outputs to go to a pvm and the scart to go to an ossc. So I think I’m fine just wanted to see if anyone knew.

Hi guys, I have a Pana Custom connected by JAMMA to a Pandora's Box 5 (the orangey-yellow one with the swirl) and through SCART > BNC inputs to a Sony PVM-14L5. I wondered if any of you gentlemen and ladies know of a method to force the PB5 to output through the SCART in 15hz CGA mode? I am given to understand that, at least with previous iterations of the PB series, it was as easy as editing a hex file so that the machine no longer forced VGA output? Is it the same for the new model, and if so, how is that achieved?

Thanks for any help, it's really appreciated. If it's not possible, well, I still have an old CRT monitor I can try, I suppose...and a working LCD monitor I can stick with, but the laaaaaggggg :(

EDIT: Sooooooooooo, the PB5 isn't compatible with CRTs at all? Not even through VGA? Well, shit. I guess I'll try my PB4, then.

EDIT 2: That worked...sorta. I can get a picture now, but it has severe geometry issues, sync keeps going on and off, the colours are very dark, etc. I'm using a PVM-14L5, any ideas?
