Kick Harness for button 6

Post by MrNewVegas » Wed Nov 20, 2019 7:29 pm

My CP in my Blast City is wired so buttons 1-5 for both P1 and P2 are fed through the P1 and P2 connectors. While buttons 6 were wired to the option connector.

What do I need to switches on the Pi2Jamma set to for only button 6? 1 and 2 off with 3 and 4 on?

As well I was having trouble connecting the two connectors the kick harness. With al my might this was as far as I could get them seated. Is this normal or should it be more flush?

For B6 to be on the kick harness you will want dipswitch 1&2 ON and 3 &4 OFF. Really, either way b6 should be on the kick harness, the dipswitch changes the JAMMA edge - depending on your cabs wiring there may be GNDs attached to the JAMMA pins in question so you will want the settings to be 1&2 ON and 3 &4 OFF just in case.

If your B6's are not already using the JAMMA GND connections like all the other buttons you will also need to connect them as the RaspberryJAMMA kick harness doesn't carry any extra GND wires.

Not sure about the connector in the photo, it's possible if the 2 sides of the plastic housing are different brands (or just ill fitting) that's the best they will fit. If they're only carrying the B6 signals the metal to metal connections inside the plastic housing are all that matters. It looks like there's plenty of protection against accidental shorts the way they are but if there's also some power running through it it may be worth a bit more of a look at it just to be safe.

Thanks! At first they weren’t working so I wasn’t sure what was happening. I was able to push it as little tighter and it worked!
