If any of you come across any supergun / CPS2 ST / cabinet deals from other websites / craigslist / ebay, please post in this thread since people interested in ST would also be interested in that.
So this post is opened to help folks trying to get a REAL st setup.
If you have CPS2 board / supergun / cab that you want to sell, post here!
UPDATE - shopping list
Where to get ST boards
If you don't mind paying a little more (for shipping and dollar/yen exchange rate), you can buy directly from coinop
kit_1363.html']Super Street Fighter 2X: Grand Master Challenge kit - Capcom CPS II - PCBs & Kits - Arcade Video Game Coinop Sales - Coinopexpress[/URL]
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo - Capcom CPS II - PCBs & Kits - Arcade Video Game Coinop Sales - Coinopexpress
If you have time to wait for deals, someone would sell them on ebay / craigslist / neo-geo.com forum occasionally.
Be sure to get a replacement battery and change it after you get your board. (just desolder the old battery and solder in a new one)

Where to get supergun
This guy sells a prebuilt supergun with composite and s-video output for $150 bucks. You just need to buy a kick harness (see below) separately and you?re all set.
eBay My World - jojoultimate
If you are looking for s-video and composite output only, I think it?s well worth it. The biggest headache if you try to build your own is to find a container to house everything nicely. I doubt anyone can do a better job than that guy.
Alternatively, you can buy a mas supernova supergun from
eBay My World - worldamusementco
for $370. It comes with two happ sticks. But 80% people now prefer Japanese sticks so unless you like the mas sticks, I?d skip that for that kind of money.
Now if you want VGA output to play it on your LCD, you need to build your own. The jojoultimate guy can also build it for you but for custom supergun he charged $400.
Here?s the shopping list. You need a full harness and a kick harness.
Wire & Harnesses - Full Cabinet Harnesses - JAMMA Full Cabinet Wiring Harness Loom - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - JAMMA Full Cabinet Wiring Harness Loom
Wire & Harnesses - JAMMA+ Harnesses - CAPCOM CPS-II / CPS-III / NAOMI AUXILIARY KICK HARNESS - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - CAPCOM CPS-III / CPS-III / NAOMI AUXILIARY KICK HARNESS
A power supply (you can use a PC power supply if you want. This one is not expensive and it?s rather compact)
Electrical Items - 15A Arcade Switching Power Supply - 110W - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - 15A Arcade Switching Power Supply - 110W
Then you need a video encoder. Either VGA output
Video Converters - CGA/EGA/YUV to VGA Arcade HD-Converter PCB (GBS-8220) - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - CGA/EGA/YUV to VGA Arcade Converter PCB (GBS-8220)
or s-video / composite
Video Converters - RGB to NTSC/PAL TV Converter PCB - JAMMABOARDS.COM - JAMMA Coin-Op Arcade Game Parts - CV-04 RGB to NTSC/PAL TV Converter PCB
note that the composite output is not good enough (both jammaboard one and the jrok) without sync cleaner
So unless your TV support s-video, get sync cleaner from http://gatorcade.com
Another solution is Neo-Bitz v2 - The Online Neo Homebrew Resource
it?s not expensive but you need to assemble it yourself, and you can?t buy it from jammaboards.com which is convenient for one stop shop.
And then there is also RGB to TV convertor - RGB to NTSC & PAL video encoder
you can buy from Golden Tee Arcade Parts Happ Controls Suzo-Happ Jrok encoders
for around $90 shipped from http://gatorcade.com
For controller support, you can either hardwire your sticks and buttons which are inconvenient. Or you can get a PSX-> jamma converters
Laugh sells an assembled one with button mapping support (useful for pad players) for $50
PSX to JAMMA converter
toodles sells an unassembled FGWidget Converter kit for $15
toodles said he?ll add button mapping support in the future. you?ll need to get a psx extension cable (toodles sells it for $5).
To connect the converters with the harness, you need a DB15 male soldering cup (I found them at fry?s for $1 a piece).
Or you can use stevetren?s suggestion
DB15 Slim Breakout Board with Screw Terminals - Winford Engineering
It doesn?t require any soldering but it?s more expensive.
Once you have the harness, power supply, video encoder and psx converter / DB15 connector, it?s just a matter of connecting the dots together.
The harness comes with instructions. You can also view the pinout here
JAMMA - XRGB wiki
CPS-2 - XRGB wiki
note that the harness is just a messy pile of wires. You don?t need half of them for your supergun. What I did to reduce the clutter is to cut all the wires that I don?t use (button 4,5,6 on the main harness, speaker +, coin counter)
The hard part is to find something nice to house everything together.
For now I?m just using a usps priority shipping box and some tie wraps
