Picked this up yesterday. Was listed, for free, on a local buy and sell at 6am yesterday. Luckily i was up and at work so saw the ad at 6.15am so sent a message instantly. They were saying someone could 'up-cycle' it so i consider it a bit of a save tbh. Described as 'lights-up' but i have no keys for the lock so i'll have to find a solution before switching on.

Anyway, Taito Field Goal Cocktail, 1979.


nice pick up for free field goal looks an interesting game too

Thanks. Actually the 1st game i own that i remember playing in my local arcade as a kid. They had the upright version. Recently discussed this game with my dad who was sure it was Arkanoid but i remembered the 3 rows of coloured helmets.

Had to drill the locks out. Opened it up and was pleased to find it all original and complete.

Maybe we should serial number these Pi2Jamma boards...really confuse the arcade collectors in 30 years time thinking there was a factory churning out these boards...haha.

Really enjoy having mine. Actually got it running in the cab you gave me Shane.

No the monitor was caked in dirt and there are a lot of metal shavings from where i drilled out the locks. Stripping it down for a clean up first.

The pcbs look great though. Bottom board in the stack has not seen daylight since 1979 i would say. Monitor bracket bolts still had torque stripe mark on them.

Unfortunately its just a Chinese Vewlix so I need to sort out some of the wiring etc as I have a Tatio JVS and VGA converters to swap for the cheapo Chinese ones fitted....

I've going to be mainly used for MAME and my JVS boards....




Hi im looking into importing basically the same one, can you please post any info regarding the purchase and import process of the cab?



I'd be interested in more info too! Thanks!

Yeah, I've managed to test it briefly to see if it works mate. Smile
It's so quick in starting and just works without any messing which is nice.

I think I need to configure some things to my taste but I simply don't have the time to read up on it and I doubt Rich would enjoy giving support to someone who has no idea how this JammaPi is set up!

I tried 1944 Loop Master and Gyruss and the sound is a bit messed up, maybe I've done something?
I can't find Gradius II in the list Cry and I want to try disabling triple buffering and vsnyc (if they are enabled) as a couple of games I feel have a bit of latency going on. I've got my monitor in vertical orientation so that may not be helping the situation either.

I don't want to come across as a moaner as the hardware is really awesome, it's so well built and very convenient. But going back in time, I remember encountering the same kind of issues when I started messing with mame on a lower spec PC all those years ago. All that was needed was couple of tweaks here and there. If triple buffering and vsync are turned on it does help reduce tearing and make things look smoother but it sometimes makes the controls feel a bit weird to me

I'm off work tomorrow so will test a few more games when I have a bit of free time, but I'm busy until next weekend so I won't be able to have a longer session on it until then.

It's such an interesting bit of kit though, really happy I'm able to experience it. Smile

You running that on mono speaker? You may need to set the mame setting for audio to mono in software for the sound to be OK on 1944, given it's q-sound and all that.
Or.. wire the pi audio directly to stereo in the cab, avoiding the jamma pins altogether ;)

Dunno about controls mind. Unless you are trying to run the very late era 2D stuff (Taito F3 for example) then it's pretty rock solid. You can also add an overclock setting to the config text file, of you want to see if your pi can be pushed a little further.

It's installed in the Blast City mate, so it should be stereo?
Even though I'm supposed to be building a PC LOL I've just uploaded a quick movie:



Just trying to play the earlier stuff mate, 1942, Star Force, Flying Shark, Green Beret etc.
There's loads of games on this, I have no idea how to set up a favourites list!

I'm guess I'm a latency sensitive guy though, I could even feel latency using a X-Arcade Joystick when using a Gamecube adapter. When I setup a basic Groovymame PC for Paul I was very impressed with that, and when I played Rich's Blast City at Revival that felt nice too.

I don't want to go off topic in this thread, so once I've got a bit of free time I'll post some questions in the JammaPi thread in the Mame forum. I think after a bit of tweaking it'll be fine. Smile
