Emergency Call Ambulance Conversion
« on: September 09, 2018, 06:17:08 pm »
Hello all!

So I just recently acquired an Emergency Call Ambulance machine from an auction.

It's a fully functioning machine, but to be totally honest, I'm not terribly interested in the actual game and am debating converting it to a MAME cab with a couple different games or at the very least I was thinking of dedicating it to Outrun.

My question is are there any hardware solutions that will allow me to take the existing controls and convert them to something MAME can understand.

I've seen some things like the I_Pac from Ultimarc but nothing that seems specific to steering wheels, brake/accelerators, etc. etc.

I also know getting the monitor to display the PC might be tricky. 

It be nice if I could get some of the vibrations and things like that to function as well.

Any advice from anyone out there?

I know this project could end up being very tricky but I'm ready for it.  Kind of looking forward to it.

EDIT: Just realized the A-Pac on ultimarc supports potentiometers.

Still curious about taking advantage of the vibrations.

This is a SEGA MODEL 3 Panel , ATM there's nothing but normally something will come it will need a arduino , BIGPANIK from GAMOOVER work on this , and perhaps the PWM2M2 board from AGANYTE from GAMOOVER forum too

Thanks for the leads bandicoot!

I came across something for the Model 3 system but it seems to still be in development.

I think I have decided to just go with the tried and true logitech setup.  Just hoping I can come up with a nice looking mounting solution in the cab.

What would be REALLY nice would be to have an interchangeable steering/flight stick setup so maybe I can also get things like Star Wars and After Burner running.

Any ideas or recommendations from anyone would be great!

Thank you and apologies.

I have actually read through that thread but was just hoping to find some more info specific to this machine, which other than a not terribly detailed manual, I can't seem to find much.
