A NEW Product?

Post by FrizzleFried » Tue May 28, 2019 7:41 pm

I was thinking about it...

How hard would it be to convert a RaspberryJAMMA I/O board to work with a PC? Correct me if I am wrong, but for video, all that would be needed is the HDMI to run to the PC's HDMI out? Right? Then the controls ... a little board with connectors would have to be made to plug in to the ribbon cable spot on the i/o board to wire up... but that would have to go to a USB or PS2 connector on the PC... right?

It could be done. That would effectively turn the RaspberryJAMMA into a J-PAC style device... All you would need is a mini-PAC, or 'zero delay' encoder, or similar and carefully jumper wire them into the ribbon cable header on the RJ. I could probably build one out of parts I have already...

I suspect it would only make sense to do on a level of 'I have these bits lying around can I do this?'.
