Allows you to play your JAMMA game, in a game cabinet wired according to the Data East classic pinout class.
While there are many games with the Data East logo, the number of games in the Data East conversion class is limited. Data East often distributed their own games, but they also developed games for other manufacturers, and published games from other companies such as Irem.
Please check the pinout and game compatibility section to ensure you have the right adapter and that it is compatible with your cabinet.
This adapter follows the following pinout scheme:
(PCB edge connector facing away, list is ordered right to left)
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.
