View Full Version : Buying a Model 3 Board

06-01-2016, 10:08 PM
Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to purchase a Sega arcade board. I don't really want the cabinet with the ancient CRT, just the board. Specifically, I'd love to play real Sega Super GT again. If it is possible, would I be able to connect something to control it with and a way to display the video and audio output?

I know next to nothing about this except that some people have *tried*. Googling doesn't appear to turn up much helpful information either unfortunately.

You will need a power supply capable of 3.3v output, Model 3 uses its own IO board with molex connectors for controls, video, audio and power, some IO boards have a VGA port that will let you use not only an arcade monitor but any PC display capable of displaying 24khz signals.

For driving games you'll need a Sega driving panel and pedals, so you'll need to salvage them from an actual Sega cabinet. no other way around this.

You're going to need a Jamma and PSU for starts. It's not something you can just set on the coffee table, like a CPS setup.

Ok, so I will need:

-A JAMMA SuperGun that will provide video and audio output to the TV.
-The Sega Super GT arcade PCB. (Like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPER-GT-scud-race-SEGA-MODEL-3-WORKING-arcade-game-board-SFL-Z/151736610887?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%2 6asc%3D36892%26meid%3D78bdcbde2db54b71a29d4cfa3a66 1dda%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D1517 95708447 )
-The custom PSU for the Sega Super GT PCB
-Lastly, the steering wheel, pedals, and buttons for Sega Super GT.

Is it possible to track all these things down?

This page also appears to have accurate info: http://www.engadget.com/2006/11/28/how-to-consolize-an-arcade-game/.

If this works, this could be awesome.

Maybe, with a ton of scouring.
