Katsu and I were planning on turning one of my older crappy computers into a IIDX arcade machine...I was wondering if anyione else would be interested, since this will (believe it or not) be a costly project. We need the keyboard encoder (easily $40) and perhaps even quadrature encoders for the turntables if we want them analog (easily >$80). I'll see what I can find for cheap, but this won't be an easy thing to pull off. Does anyone else think this is feasible, and would anyone else want to help?

ps. this involves making a homemade arcade turntable/keypad setup as well!

or just buying dj dao controllers lololol.
-half serious. that would make it so much easier.
-half not, idk where the hell we would get that kind of money in a short time.

though, if we can scrape up $1k of cash, we can get the dj dao real edition, which basically is identical to the arcade controller. yup, that means it's one huge piece stuck together that's about the size of a piano keyboard, minus the coin slot. would be nice!

reviving this project from the dead, look what I found:

http://cgi.ebay.com/20-Honeywell-HOA6970-T...%3A1|240%3A1318
optical sensors, we'll need these if we wanna just use it with the chip that follows (I'm gonna get em anyway, for my umouse project next year)

http://cgi.ebay.com/LS7184-Quadrature-Enco...%3A1|240%3A1318
here's the encoder chip, we'll be using this if we make the whole turntable from scratch.

FoxFireX recommended this, cause he used this one and it worked. It's a quadrature encoder, which means we don't need the above two if we use these.

http://cgi.ebay.com/RENCO-MODULAR-ENCODER-...%3A1|240%3A1318
however, I found these. They do the same thing but cost a lot less.

So? what do you guys think? still a feasible project?

do it. I didn't really look, but the price of those switches were cheeeeeap. we need buttons.

oh well, probrem solved. I got a batch of the optical sensors and three batches of the microswitches.

Sensors and switches in, I'll be sending the switches home to Hilo with Brent when he goes back for thanksgiving. The mixer should be going home too. Now all I have to do is design a circuit to interface with a controller...perhaps some cheap ass used keyboards or something? I was looking at my Acer keyboard (the one I got with the micropc) and when playing Stepmania I noticed that it supports 4+ keystrokes at once. Perhaps new keyboards solved the ghosting problem with a different hardware implementation?

thanks Bass, I hope it does too. There's some circuits to build but I actually have access to microprocessors and/or eeprom programmers, so that should be easier (and cheaper) than buying a shitload of gate IC's.

Here stay some rinks.

this one basically says how to build a arcade spec controller from a jp one.

this one is just a thread from bemanistyle.com, seems helpful enough.
http://www.bemanisty...514/index2.html

here are buttons for $13ish for one. We need a cheeper [lol cheepcheep] [it's spelt cheap, if you didn't know how it was actually spelt lawl.] prices D:

update on this project...dunno if it's going anywhere but I'm still interested. I think it will pick up speed once Empress CS hits.
