Anyone have a JROK board hooked to a Switcher of some sort??
« on: March 29, 2019, 08:53:00 pm »
Recently put the final touches on my Pedestal Build JROK Multiwilliams and have been having a blast playing it.. When I was waiting for the JROK board to become available I took several PC's I had laying around and frankensteined together a little emulation setup so I could play test the control panel layout. At first I just installed the same games as I would be playing on the pedestal, then for fun I added a few more, Donkey Kong, Pengo you know as a change of pace, then I started to fall in love with the smooth play of the Dominux8 joystick setup to 4 way only, so added Ms. Pac-Man speed up hack. It was still gonna be awhile, so I added Daphne and its big 3, then thought, you know, I registered a copy of ReDream, I wonder how it would play on a Core2 Duo, well, it plays very well, and of all games, I really like playing Rush 2049 with the setup I had. Next thing you know I have added Super Nintendo and Atari 2600 so I could play Super Mario 3 and Space Invaders, then I spent way to much time messing with HyperSpin so I could get everything working and looking good inside a front end. Could not sleep one night and decided to solve another problem, Favorites..  It was a bit of a pain to go in and out of menus and search through games just to get to the handful of ones I wanted to play so I found out how to solve that, now I have 2 favorite wheels in Hyperspin, one for Arcade Games and one for Console Favorites, but the thing is, eventually, my JROK board showed up and now that PC is sitting under my computer desk gathering dust. Do not get my wrong, I have a great Mame cabinet where I can play all these games, but what I am wondering is how easily I could merge my "Test" emulation pc with the new JROK setup.

I have seen several PC to Jamma items available out there and various Jamma 2 in 1 solutions, hoping maybe someone here on the boards has some recent experience with this or something similar, any ideas would be appreciated.
