Figured it’d be Windows… Lucky me inherited a PC from my dad, though!
I can offer SOME good news, though.
I got my Saturn cords RJ-45 adapted already. Took about 75-80 minutes of work for all three. It appears that the color labeling for the wiring is consistent for Sega, Hori, and Ascii brand connection cables. Verified this by my multimeter.
Here’s the color by wire going from left-to-right by Pin Position on the RJ-45 –
White (1) Black (2) Green (3) Grey (4) Orange (5) Red (6) Yellow (7) Blue (8)
Again, this is consistent among the 3 brands of Saturn connectors I have. More good news is that the stock connector lengths are plentiful. They range from 5-feet-plus to just under 10 feet!
I just cut down the 9th wire (the Brown) so that it didn’t interfere with the other wires. Brown should be Pin Position #6 on the Saturn’s connector end – the Pin Position we were told to skip.
I still double-checked on each wiring bundle to be sure before I crimped on the adapters.
