Nichibutsu to JAMMA adapter


Here's another JAMMA adapter for some less 'common' games you might run across.

This adapter is used for Nichibutsu "44 pin" game boards such as Mag Max, Terra Cresta, UFO Robo Dangar, Roller Jammer, Armed Formation F and probably a bunch of others (Pastel Gal, Mighty Guy, Amazon, City Love all look like good candidates).

The JAMMA functions are labeled on the PCB in case you want to make any customizations. In addition, the JAMMA connector edge is keyed to mate to a standard JAMMA harness, and the edges are beveled with the connectors gold plated for long life and highest quality connections.

The board is priced at $25 each, fully assembled and tested.

Miscellaneous Notes:

  • I've personally tested the adapter with Mag Max and Terra Cresta but it should also work with the games listed above. It would be wise to double-check the wiring to be safe though.
  • The adapter should only be used on original Nichibutsu circuit boards. (Not pirate boards-- it might work on a pirate PCB, but it might not!)
  • If your JAMMA cabinet has a "service" switch it is connected to the "service" input on the Nichibutsu board.
  • Coin counters are not connected.
  • The adapter will work with the MultiJAMMA as well.

This is a pretty small run (I wasn't really planning on making this a regular product), so please e-mail to check availability before ordering.
