Hi !

Our wonderful german customs denied the import of the new Sigma AV1 supergun i bought from tops-game :(

CE sign missing, no german manual, no german current connector etc. this sucked big time.

Anyway, bought an older model the AV5000 from a fellow member from otaku.

1.) I wonder if it is possible to easily change the PSU on this beast, since i dont want to use a step-down converter (ordered 300W model; down to 110V)
2.) Wont 110V-115V damage the SG in the long run since its labeled to be used with japanese 100V ?
3.) I hunted the right Stick for it (TB8000), since i dont like the cheap neo-geo sticks. Unfortunately with no cables, will any D15 <=> D15 cable fit ?
4.) Can i use this cable for example? https://www.amazon.de/SVGA-Kabel-Premiu ... s9dHJ1ZQ==

I don't know anything about your SG, however I will say eBay usually has really nice Neo Geo extension cables from China for about $5-9 for two, and they are of good quality and also deep enough to work on an actual NG, something that won't work with the cables you're looking at on Amazon.

What is the best budget friendly, readily available option for a supergun that won't fry my OSSC if directly hooked up?

I see these available for a pretty reasonable price, how are these? Can I directly hook it up to a OSSC?

I bought a retroelektronic supergun recently. NOT a great product. Tons of noise in the video. The controller port pinout doesn't match up with UD and other common pinouts. I modded one connetor to work with my UD-USB (a bit of a pain, including cutting traces). I also bought some of the retroelektronic Genesis-to-NeoGeo adapters, which you would think should work great with the supergun. Well, the kicks and punches are reversed - if you intend to use it for 6-button play, the kicks will be on the top row of buttons and punches will be on the bottom row. I modded one of the adapters to correct the situation, and that was a giant pain in the ass.

At the same time I was doing that, I gambled on a Aliexpress supergun. It took about 6 weeks to get it, but this thing is great!

The controller pinout matches up with UD standard. Video and audio work great. Powering it is a slight challenge - you can't simply use a PICO ATX PSU, as you can see. But, I bought this converter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NB ... UTF8&psc=1 I use my PICO ATX PSU with this, with a 4-pin molex connector wired appropriately, and it all works great! Using it with my OSSC as well, and getting pixel perfection.

Every SG available at https://www.arcade-projects.com/forums/ seems to be a good choice (won't fry your system or PCBs).

However, I only have personal experience with the HAS, which is what I recommend.

Getting one is hard though especially this year, so if you can wait for it, do so, if not, any of the ones discussed/sold there are solid choices.

Here is one I'm picking up after they add a few more minor features I'm looking for as a 2nd SG for myself.

I have the Parsec Supergun at v2.2 now.
I'm currently taking preorders on arcade-projects.com. I also have the bare PCB available on tindie.com.

It now uses the same 6p JST kick harness connector and pinout as the HAS, Sentinel, Minigun, etc.

I'm still building these by hand so it's hard to meet demand at the moment.

Am I wasting my time trying to get a Parsec supergun? I'm on an email list but every time I get an email they're already sold out again. You'd think the things cured cancer with how quickly they sell.

I am accepting Parsec preorders on arcade-projects.com

I will have more superguns available late September.

Sorry I sell out quickly when I list them on tindie.com because I usually don't have many available at once. This most recent "restock" I only had 3 Parsecs avalable after shipping the preorders out.

Is it correct that old 15 KHz Arcade CRTs display just 240 Progressive lines at 15Khz opposed to 240p over 15Khz 480i on consumer CRT TVs? If that is correct then can a Super Gunoutput the 240 progressive lines to a TV without every other scan line black which is how old games consoles were able to output 240P over 480i.

What is the best power supply for a HAS in America?

This topic is up for a lot of debate...

https://www.arcade-projects.com/forums/ ... /&pageNo=1

But a Meanwell seems to be the right way to go. Happs is sort of crap now, but I've used one for 3 HAS' now and no issues. You could also go Happ and re-cap it with better caps if you're super worried.

Has anyone else experienced SYNC issues with the Parsec supergun when combined with a Sony PVM 20L2MD or other PVM model? If so, how did you correct the issue?

I don't want to derail the thread with a rant on German customs, but this is a complete joke.

I am hoping my Supergun makes it here unscathed.

Id like to buy the newest version of HAS but the Powersupplies makes me really uncertain. It rather want to use a laptop PSU or something like that than to wire it.

So I was never awere of those overvoltaged RGB Syncs which the HAS handels perfectly with a Csync option which is documented here on page 7
https://homearcadesystem.files.wordpres ... manual.pdf

isn't there really any other Supergun out there that doesn't just passthrough the RGB Signal via Scartoutput?

What are you uncertain about regarding the power supply? If you use the recommended power supply from RGB he does also offer 3D printed covers for them so that they aren't exposed and is much safer

I love my HAS :D

HI just a quick question. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to superguns. I have just ordered a cbox v2.0 jamma from aliexpress. After doing some more reading Ive heard how other items from this manufacturer have killed some ossc's and possibly a pvm. is this also the case with this supergun? if so is there a fix or am i better of trying to cancel my order. I really liked this one as it had saturn ports built right into it. The board i have is a cps2 aliens vs predator, was planning to run it through a hydra v2 revised scart switch to daisy chain through 3 pvms and then from the second output of the hydra to an ossc to a plasma monitor. Sorry if these are dumb questions as I'm a noob heh.

I'd stay away from Scart output

You should be good with component out

I have a unatached HD-15 adapter for my HAS. The Signal frequences would be the same as for the 8pin Scart output right?

Id like to avoid a XRGB-2 in my chain because my LCD Monitor won't sync on those 15khz signals... with the XRGB it works because it outputs 31khz
