Driving twincabinet project (Emulator)
« on: December 30, 2018, 01:04:23 pm »
Hello!   :)
New to the forum and have just purchased a twin driving cab. It was not meant, is was a impulse purchase at a very good price  :applaud:

The machine itself is like new condition, has probably never been out in the "public". Its made by IGS in Taiwan 2008 with the 2005 game "Speed Driver Evolution" that i think is a "clone" of another arcade game. The cab also looks like a clone from a SEGA cab. 29" CRT screens with trisync. The "brain" in this thing is 1 ordinary PC with a 64gb SD card as HDD, but the card is empty so i can not start it upp.

So my plan is to install emulator in this twin cab as i think its perfect for that!. But i am going to need some help down the road i am sure of..  :cheers:

First thing i need to solve is interfacing the controls, steering and so on. And that i think can do witout any bigger problems. But the force feedback is another question, and for others i have read in this forum. So tips and hints on what soulotion i should look into would be great!

The "original" PC has a PCI card connected to both cabīs  I/O and FFB board with one type "COM" port, and one type "Printer" port. I think the boards looks a lot like the ones i have seen in pictures of SEGA cabs. I will probably never find drivers and so for this setup i think, i will probably have to fix this with another solution..right?

I post some pictures here to look at and get some opinions and ideas  ???

The cab

The PCI card

The back, fantastic how clean it is  :applaud:

FFB and I/O board  (The wiring to cab#2 passes trough this card aswell)
