    Gift and project for Neo Geo hardware hacker types

    I had mentioned that while at SNK I had designed a steering wheel addition to the Neo Geo to play some serious Thrash Rally. This was shown at some trade shows but did not garner enough attention to warrant manufacture, sadly.

    And so I present to you the schematic for making it yourself.

    Sure, there is a long set of rules about it. I am leery of someone taking it and selling on their own without getting legal permission and licensing from me. this is for your own personal use if you want the challenge to add this bit of controller festivities to Thrash Rally.

    If you DO wish to make a kit to sell of this, please do contact me first for arrangements.

    Enjoy!

    It's as if you are speaking directly to kenny.

    lol, I was thinking the same thing as soon as I read that!

    Except, of course, that Kenny's would have l.e.d.'s and be called a "princess wheel" and therefore could never be confused with SNK's proto

    OT - although not for me, it's a great piece of info to release - thanks Tony!

    I like how it's been a couple days already, and kenny hasn't even made a post to deny that he would do something like that.

    Thanks for posting this. I have been curious about how this was done ever since I first read about it a while ago.

    This is so damn cool. I actually really like Thrash Rally so this would be fun to have for it.

    No problem and you are welcome to build your own for personal use. It was done on a breadboard for the prototype. I have my pictures from SNK over here so once I scan I will post those pertaining to this project.

    I will not release the ticket dispenser Neo Geo project because it is all complicated as heck and I lost my source code and schematics. On that one, I spied on the data and address bus using 74245 buffers and flagging when the score memory location was hit. It fed into an Apple 2E to process all that goofiness.

    This is such a neat thing that I've put a noticed at the top of the forum and deleted the two Kiwi references (because he doesn't deserve any attention here). Expect more people reading about it.

    Confirmed working. I am having an issue with some stutter when the wheel stops moving to the right, but I think it's my encoder.

    This is where things will get tricky. I finding a new compatible optical encoder and wheel. I am going to try a few newer models so we don't have to worry too much on stability of old stuff.

    Oh and it works great in Pop N Bounce too!

    How the heck do you manage to pop out these boards so quickly?? You're like the magic man of custom boards. Also, what program do you use?

    China is the land of PCBs and Honey. I use Eagle for small boards like these.

    Please don't giveup the PnB rotary project, it would be cool to enable hidden bios features and screens!!

    Thanks again!
