About the Xbox 360... Is there any frontend/loader for it that replaces the default dashboard and looks more suitable for an arcade cabinet?

the feeling of adrenalin with modern shmups (manic shooters)  is due to "Hit box"... on old games, anything that goes to your ship kills it (or loses power as in 1943),    but in modern ones, you survive incredible waves and feel invincible for some time or seconds.. due to the hit box which is thinner...   combined to the mathematical patterns of the enemies bullets that are way more sophisticated than old games single shots,  give this tremendous sympathy from many new hardcore nerves gamers to shmups !

there's certainly matter if you Jtag the xbox360 to use alternate dashboards, and that would be a better way to gain access to DLC parts of some Cave games.  

yep ps3 is a total loser for "Tate" shmups games.. even  good shmups games !!   xbox360 has such a great listing.   but some games are still "JAP" only locked (even some versions of a game are locked !,   Cave is specialist in multiple versions of some games  (it's called "Black label"    rarer jamma boards with higher difficulty).   (except if you have a xbox360 hardware Asian/jap  or JTAG one..   Asian is 220v..)

the best combo for nearly all shmups games  is  xbox+coinops + xbox360+jtag   but would require 2 different pad hacks... but with an astrocity pinout for inputs... you can put specific connectors,   some people sell hacked pads with direct plug-in  Smiley  (~50€/piece)     and it's matter of 3 seconds to change from xbox1 to xbox360.. no more time if you have a RGB switch too..

or you can sell your lungs for real good Jamma..

Thanks to all for your replies... I feel a little bit like a noob on this!  Tongue

Does the Xbox360 (or even XBox) has games that can be set in 'tate' (vertical) mode by the way?

Microsoft XBOX 360
Shikigami No Shiro III
Raiden Fighters Aces (J)
Raiden IV (J)
DoDonPachi Daioujou Black Label Extra (J)
Espgaluda 2 (RF)
Ketsui (J)
Muhishi Sama Futari 1.5 (RF)
DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu Ver 1.5
Guwange (16:9 ratio in Tate, not 4:3)
Triggerheart Excelia
KOF Sky Stage
Mushihime Sama HD
Ikaruga
Bullet Soul
Muchi Muchi Pork
Pink Sweets


Better is it to make Playstation 2 (PS 2) controller adapters and then use PS 2 to 'all kind of console' adapters, which you can buy everywhere.

Wow, impressive list of 'tate' game  Shocked! In addition of the real jamma boards, xbox360 seems the way to go to  Smiley
Cool, I still have an official xbox360 scart RGB cable somewhere. I think I've seen somewhere a SCART to Jamma adapter? Someone can confirm it's a way to go?

Can you provide me good links for buying the necessary stuff for a 'clean'  XBOX360 -> Sega Astro City please?

This really got me interested! The best way to run these games must be on a vertical monitor.. But the Xbox dashboard (and other launch menus that I have seen) have all been horizontal?  Huh?

Yep, and as it happens I just gathered some obsolete items this morning which I want to sell, and there is a 360 vga cable with oudio out between the stuff. Interested?

The marquee? That beautiful piece of acryl with Japanese babe Chun-Li portretted on it? The one that you wasn´t interested in?   Wink

Sure, it is for you, I will keep it safe here, together with the 360 VGA cable.  Grin And guess what, the cable is a free addition.  Smiley

Boy, it looks like you´re getting the vibes ..... Asian vibes that is.  Grin

I'll go for the 360 hackpad pictured, in addition of a Scart To Jamma adapter.

If you want a really good scart to jamma adapter, then this is one of the best choices: http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=28069

I have version 1 and it works great. It has an audio and a video amplifier on board. Also check out his Playstation controller boards at this page: http://etim.net.au/scart2arcV20_orders/orders.htm

In short: with Viletim´s scart to jamma adapter and the PS2 controller board you have the best solution to connect RGB scart consoles (360, Gamecube, SNEs, Saturn!!!!, etc. etc.) to your Astro City.

Of course you need ´Playstation to other console controller adapters´, but they are easy available. I have them for a lot of consoles, including the 360, DC and Saturn. For the 360, the controller converter pro is a good choice, will cost you about 20 bucks.

Oh, and don´t forget that an Arcade CRT monitor can generally handle resolutions up to 640x480, even if you have a try-sinc chassis. So before you connect a 360 or other highres capable console, make sure that you set it on forehand to a 640x480 video output. Else the monitor will not sync, but even worse, you might damage it!!  Shocked
