Turn an old CRT Television into a Raspberry Pi Powered MAME Cocktail Cabinet
Keyboard encoder for MAME arcade
I have a question, I wanted to know how to wire up the microswitches like I have A8 B5 for A and A7 B5 for W, so do I draw multiple wires from B5?
Hope I make sense, Iam getting the layout for my keyboard and im a bit confused. Since im not done this may be obvious later so bare with me.pin 20 has spacebar,windows, and →. I solder 1 wire to pin 20. How do i use all three functions? Do i branch off that one wire?
you can probably just do the "read" function and start shorting one trace to another
I guess I can't edit, it's a CRT TV. component, A/v, RF, and S video inputs.
I know this instructable is old, but, it's the most informative piece I've found in my searching. Would it be possible to set this up as 2 player? one on either side, like the old Pacman Tables, or say as a nintendo emulator? Ive got a 32" flat screen CRT that I don't really want to toss out, and am trying to find a way to use it as an arcade. I'd settle for MAME, but NES, SNES, Genesis/Mastersystem would be great, just 2 player. Even if I had to build a vertical cabinet for side by side 2 player that would be fine. Thanks for this instructable, and thanks in advance for a reply
