Allows you to play your JAMMA games in a Capcom 56 pin pre-JAMMA cabinet with the Capcom classic pinout class. This adapter will play JAMMA games with up to 3 buttons according to the button layout of the Gun Smoke cabinet configuration. For Capcom cabinets with less than 3 buttons please see the pinout section for more information.
The adapter is connected to the cabinet edge connector as follows:
|SOLDER SIDE||PARTS SIDE|
|GND *||GND *|
(Cabinet edge connector facing away, list is ordered right to left)
Important: This adapter does not support the -5V power rail which is not present in Capcom’s 1942 / Vulgus wiring harness. Games that require -5V may not run.
For cabinets with less than 3 buttons or less than 2 coin switches, please confirm button and switch configuration against this table. See Button and Switch Layout section below.
See Button and Switch Layout section below.
Some bootleg cabinets may use this pin for coin counter power. This adapter leaves these pin unconnected.

Button and Switch Layout:
In most circumstances this adapter will work as intended with your cabinet without any modifications. Problems may occur playing some JAMMA games in a modified cabinet with less than 3 buttons, or only one coin switch present.
If the button order is wrong you may need to swap the wires going to the buttons behind the control panel. If a button doesn’t register at all, say only JAMMA button 2 and 3 work, you may need to run a jumper from button 3 to button 1 at the cabinet wire harness edge connector.
If game can’t be coined up, say in a case where only COIN2 switch is wired in the cabinet, and the game only supports the COIN1 switch, you may need to swap the coin wires on the harness or potentially jumper them together to get the game to coin up.
