Made a little guide on how to upgrade the speakers in your EGRET II (should work well for any type of JAMMA sitdown really) to a 2.1 stereo set, allowing easy console, PC or a stereo source, line output arcade system. The guide describes what’s needed, and how to do the switch in three ways. …

Picked up a CPS2 mobo locally. Just waiting for that special B-board. Yesterday I received a Papst fan that I’m gonna put in the mobo to make everything quiet and nice.

Last night I finished the new 1L5B-panel for the new EGRET II and I am very pleased with the look and overall greatness of it. 😛 I wanted to try out some new stuff, so I’ve modded an Seimitsu LS-32 joystick with an LS-40 shaft. This is also known as the LS-36 (not an official …

Picked up my second EGRET II today: (Sorry for the iPhone picture, I didn’t have a lot of time tonight).

I have made some nice changes to my Red Box PCB so it now has AdvanceMenu as frontend. This of course looks much better than the very basic menu that came with it. Also supports animated previews of all games and has a nice trance track as background music. I’ve created a kick ass animation …
