[edit] Game Dongles and HDDs List

The games comes preinstalled in the HDD and paired to a dongle. Games can contain firmware updates, and game updates. Both installed automatically when booting the game for first time.

The game update path (source) seems to be: /dev_hdd0/game/SCEEXE000/ARCDIR/INSDIR/, the subfolder "INSDIR" is a standard used in game disc structures that allows the automatic installation of multiple packages with names DATA000.PKG, DATA001.PKG, etc... See: PARAM.SFO#CATEGORY (the complete path is speculation, in the photos is only visible "/dev_hdd0/game/SCEEXE000/ARCDIR/INS")

The firmware update path (source): /dev_hdd0/game/SCEEXE000/ARCDIR/PS3UPDAT.PUP

The harddrive is decrypted using a static key inside lv1ldr when Target ID = 0xA0 ARC

lv1/lv1ldr should be same as on retailmodels, but for the nittpickers:

[edit] NAMCO JVS and I/O boards

I/O board is connected to JVS board, the inputs of the I/O board (buttons, stick, credit slot) are sent to the JVS board and then to the PS3 board by a USB cable. Video signal from "PS3 board" to "JVS board" is sent with a "AV MultiOUT" cable, and then to the cabinet display using a VGA connector

JVS, or Jamma Video Standard (sometimes even called JAMMA 2), is an updated version of JAMMA created in the late 90’s by an special sub-committee consisting of the major arcade game manufacturers. http://www.jamma.or.jp/

JVS specifies the type of connectors to use for video (HD-15, commonly known as a VGA), audio (RCA) and power (JST VL), in addition to the communications protocol between the game board and the I/O board. In contrast to (old) JAMMA, JVS concentrates I/O functions in a separate board.

See: http://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/JVS and http://jvspac.kirurg.org/


Namco System357 boards connectors:

  • I/O board (at top, from left to right)
    • 1 connector (in white) with 24 pins
    • 8 dipswitches (in black/red) -> (2nd dip is for enabling 31KHz)
    • 1 connector (in white) with 10 pins
  • JVS board (at bottom, from left to right)
    • USB (JV I/O JAMMA) interface
    • DC IN ??
    • VGA (video out)
    • RCA white (left speaker out)
    • RCA red (right speaker out)

  • Note the references to system357 in "Deadstorm Pirates" and "Razing Storm" manuals.pdf, and the pictures of the connectors that can help to identify motherboards/models
    • Picture in razing storm manual.pdf - (section 5.5 "inserting the dongle")... the connectors matches with a system357b (VER001 motherboard)... but there is no JVS and I/O boards
    • It seems the newer system357 models (system357c ?) doesnt have/use a JVS and I/O boards, has been replaced by a "USB I/O PCB" (in page 50 and 94 in razing storm manual and the photo of "357b/c connection diagram" above), with a hardware identifyer "US1001" and/or "USIO01"

[edit] JVS to JAMMA converters

Used to connect JVS devices to JAMMA cabinets (older), home made cabinets, or for service/repair purposes. This converters are not present in Namco cabinets but are listed here as usefull tools or related hardware

Capcom I/O JAMMA converter
Capcom IO JAMMA converter.jpg
  1. Power output (supplies power to the JVS board)
  2. VGA in (video, standard or high resolution, no medium resolution)
  3. USB in (for controls)
  4. RCA in (audio)
  5. Volume adjustment
  6. Capcom kick harness (unlike Sega IOs, Capcom IO does not use "unmapped" JAMMA pins for extra buttons, you must use this connector instead. Also, you connect 3P and 4P controls here)
  7. JAMMA (connect your cabinet here)

  • Sega ?? (it seems there are at least 2 sega "JVS to JAMMA coverters" compatibles, for "Sega Naomi" and "Sega Lindbergh")

  • Note the motherboard is based on PS3 slim, the position of the connectors matches with DYN-00x (CECH-20xx), and SUR-00x (CECH-21xx) or later JTP-001/JSD-001
  • Note the 3 USB connectors (not present in PS3 slim models), this means there is a "USB HUB" inside the case (or 1 of the USB connectors is only a "dummy" to feed power to USB devices with no data communication), either in a separated board or integrated in one of the JVS board or IO board
