    Hiya!

    Can anyone tell me where I can get hold of any blueprints of the Naomi arcade board?

    I want to know whether there is a second video output on the boards. Is there a website dedicated to this sort of thing? Please let me know. Thanks!

    Don't you have access to a manual thru the Casino arcade? If the info you need isn't in the manual, then maybe the guy in St. Louis that has his own personal VF4 set up can help you out. Search for St. Louis in Jamboree forum. (I may be wrong about St. Louis, but its somewhere in the midwest US.) There's also contact info for the same guy at VF4fx. Look in the US locations table.

    Hmm... how is the vs. cabinet with back to back monitors set up then? There has to be two outputs off the naomi board. Or do you need to splice the cable?

    Are you looking to set up a second monitor so that an audience can better view what's happening without crowding over the players' shoulders? The Toronto crew set up a video camera on a tripod hooked to a monitor that everyone could sit down in front of and watch at their most recent tournament. Mucho cudos for kbcat and Llanfair for pulling that off... I gots to make the next big Toronto event... =)

    Nah.. thinking of grabbing the game action directly from the machine giving me crisp video to a card capture device. This frees up a protential (what i mean by that is if we get one!) camcorder for filming people and stuff.

    Might check out the boards myself when I pop to the ATEI trade show early next year. Want to see if Soul Calibur 2 is there!

    I don't have access to any technical stuff except thru the Internet, but the stuff i've searched on google hasn't help too much. I did get to see pictures of the outputs like audio and vga out but there's nothing I can see that has another video out.

    The thing you've suggested last is a good idea but if I was to do that, I want to have it on those multiscreens!

    There's only one video out, a standard VGA connection, 31khz VGA output (although there's a dipswitch on the filter board to switch to 15khz, interlaced output).

    Then how are the Japanese vs. cabinets with 2 monitors set up? Do you have to use a split cable to get a signal to both monitors, or do you input to one monitor which has a video output that cables over to the second monitor? My Wega has this type of setup I believe--there's a video out jack that can be used to send a copy of the signal to another monitor. Too much of a pain to go dig up the manual right now... =)
