I just nabbed a project Astro City (and I’m pumped to restore it) from coinopstore.com in San Jose (seems like a great place, by the way, the owner was very helpful and helped me piece together a usable cab, since I was after the cheapest solution, knowing full well I was going to restore/customize it) and already know I need a J-PAC adapter to hook up my PC to the monitor, but I also want to hook up a PS2 and PS3.
I’ve looked around and I’m just plain confused on what I’m supposed to do. Can I get a PS2->VGA adapter and hook it into the J-PAC? I can’t imagine the PS2 will output the correct resolution and frequency… I’m lost.
My current thought is to run the PS2 through my PC’s video capture card into the J-PAC but that seems like a roundabout solution. I’d like to do it natively if possible.
My hope was just to wire the controls directly to PS2 pads and switch those between the consoles (since I have PS2->everything adapters…) and have a VGA cable I just swap between which system I want hooked up, but I’m scratching my head as to whether that’s possible or not.
