Info

I recently picked up a pi2jamma, which is a JAMMA compatible arcade board made to interface with a Raspberry PI 3. This is in use as an alternate JAMMA board in my Neo Geo Arcade Cabinet.

The other comparable device to this is the RaspberryJAMMA / Arpicade. This uses the HDMI video output and converts to VGA.


Hardware

The pi2jamma was created by Jochen Zurborg. Its design is fairly simple, you simply mount the Pi3 on its GPIO pins and connect the audio from the headaphone jack out of the Pi in to the pi2jamma. Power is provided over GPIO, no additional connections are required outside of your JAMMA harness.

it contains these primary components:

  • Integrated audio amp


Software

Regamebox is the official software distribution. Work has been done to make Retropie work as well.

I have been working on porting the Arpicade software (intended for RaspberryJAMMA) which is just changing a few modules and script settings.
