36 pin to JAMMA adapter
||Here's another JAMMA adapter
for some for LOTS of games based on the Konami 36
is used for games such as Time Pilot, Time Pilot
84, Tutankham, Pooyan, Gyruss, Track and Field,
Amidar, Scramble, Super Cobra, Hyper Olympics,
Juno First, Pandora's Palace, Rescue, etc.
The JAMMA connector edge is
keyed to mate to a standard JAMMA harness and the
edges are beveled and gold plated for long life
and highest quality connections.
The board is priced at $25
each, fully assembled and tested.

In addition to the expected Konami->JAMMA
functionality, this adapter has several other features:
- A block of jumpers allows you to customize
between 'normal' JAMMA connections and a special
mapping for Track and Field and Hyper Olympics.
When the jumpers are set to "Track and
Field", the three JAMMA buttons for each
player become the two run buttons and 'jump' like
on a real Track and Field machine.
- A second connector provides speaker outputs for
the second audio amp used with Gyruss.
- A third connector allows you to disconnect the
-5V input to the board (rumors have it that some
boards can get confused with -5V on that pin,
although I've never seen that happen). It also
provides an easy spot to connect -5V to the board
only in case your JAMMA cabinet doesn't have a
-5V supply and you don't want to tear-up your
harness to fix it.
- I've personally tested the adapter with Time
Pilot, Time Pilot 84, Tutankham, Gyruss, Track
and Field, and Scramble. It should work with all
other Konami 36 pin boards without any surprises,
but it would be wise to double-check the wiring
to be safe.
- The adapter should only be used on original
Konami circuit boards. (Not pirate boards-- it
might work on a pirate PCB, but it might not!
Check the wiring!)
- The adapter will work with the MultiJAMMA as well.
