JAMMA SWAP IN 60 SECONDS!
Swapping JAMMA boards is one of the easiest things you can do when it comes to messing with arcade games. In fact, yesterday, I converted my Aerofighters cabinet to a multigame 48-in-1 cabinet in about 60 seconds. Here's what swapping JAMMA boards looks like.
Here's my Aerofighters cabinet. The monitor is mounted vertically, which is exactly what I need for this project.
Here is the 48-in-1 PCB. The board is on the right. I put some DVD cases on the left hand side of the picture for scale purposes. This board is small!
Here's the back of my Aerofighters cabinet with the rear door removed. The monitor is at the top. On the bottom left is the power supply. The giant board to the right is Aerofighters.
Here's a closer shot of the old board.
At the top of the board is the JAMMA harness. It simply unplugs from the old board.
For testing purposes, I've set the new board on top of the old one (I told you it was small!). Note how the harness plugs directly into the new board. That's the magic of JAMMA!
Flip the game on, and like magic, the cabinet is now a new game! All that's left after this point is removing the old board and mounting the new board to the inside of the cabinet.
That's a simple JAMMA swap!
