Rolling Thunder Atari Ireland
« on: January 14, 2017, 10:06:26 AM »
Finally after some years of research (and for my fault, i miss two cabs in the past)....
Thank you very much Chris.
Love this cab....


After some minutes of unpacking...



Very good conditions and all original.

It's power supply don't work.
I'll try to have it repaired so the cab will stay original.

In the meantime i only have to understand which is the order of the power going into this Atari interface that goes then inside the jamma of the board.
Don't know if it follow the jamma standard pinout too.







I don't think it's a big problem, anyway if someone could tell me which is the order of the wires i appreciate.
:)

Edit.....
It's back to life...
And cables have been touched....
I use a mate'n'loc 6 pin connector...and now...

Oh thanks.
Would be great if he can clear that for me.
Strange that this is not on the user manual....

Yes very true.
Thanks for the help.
I should have solved it.
1-2-3 should be GND
4-5 should be +5V
6 should be +12V
Info from a nice guy here in Italy, confirmed from an old post from the great KenLayton.
I'm really excited now....
I want to put my hands on the cab now...

EDIT: I see you know it's actually Jamma and was actually enquiring about the wires feeding into the adapter board. So disregard this post:

The connector on a standard Atari Ireland Rolling Thunder is Jamma standard. In your 4th picture you can see "JAMMA" silkscreened onto the board.

It doesn't have the -5V connected if you try and put a different board in there that requires it.

Great to have it running again.
Now i want to fix wirings and aestethical conditions.....
I just see that seems to be only US control panel overlay.
Anyone knows where i could get a repro CPO for the Euro version of this cabinet?
