The Namco System 246/256 is an arcade platform based on the Sony Playstation 2. Sometimes referred to as Namco 2x6, as the two hardwares are very similar and run much of the same software.

The system is comprised of a motherboard and optical or hard disk drive, housed in a large metal case. Software runs either straight off the hard disk, or from supplied optical media (usually a DVD but some CD versions exist), alongside a security dongle which is cosmetically identical to a PS2 memory card. The security dongle dictates the region the game will run in.

Hardware

There are 4 known revisions of the System 2x6 hardware. The 246 Rev.A is the most common, notable for being physically the largest of the motherboards. It runs the majority of System 246 titles, but some games require a Rev.B or Rev.C motherboard. The Rev.B contains additional hardware required to run more complex titles such as Ridge Racer V. The Rev.C motherboard is notable by it's smaller physical size and is thought to be able to run all System 246 titles. Lastly the System 256 is backwards compatible with all System 246 titles and will also run later games such as Tekken 5.

DVD Drive

In the majority of cases, System 246 uses DVD as it's storage system. The hardware accesses the DVD drive all the time as the game plays, including in attract mode. Due to this the DVD drive will fail eventually. Fortunately, regular DVD drives work in System 246 units, but not all DVD drives are compatible. Compatibility appears to rely on the replacement DVD drive having a compatible chipset or at least compatible ATAPI command set. The following drives have been tested[1].

I/O Boards

The Namco 2x6 is pseudo-JVS and will require a JAMMA I/O in order to function in JAMMA cabinets. Namco have their own I/O specifically created for the 2x6, but most JVS-to-JAMMA I/O boards will work including the popular Capcom I/O.

Namco I/O

The Namco I/O supports 6 buttons per player via the 10 pin JST connector located on the front right of the pcb. The full pinout is as follows (practically identical to the CPS1 and ST-V pinout):-

1=GND
2=NC
3=P1 Button 4
4=P1 Button 5
5=P1 Button 6
6=NC
7=P1 Button 4
8=P1 Button 5
9=P1 Button 6
10=GND

Capcom Fighting Jam is the only known 2x6 game which uses 6 buttons, buttons 4-5-6 are short-forward-roundhouse. Tekken 4 assigns right kick to button 4 and left kick to button 5. Soul Calibur II and III assign guard to button 5 (the SC3 manual states kick is duplicated on button 4 too).

The Namco I/O also supports stereo sound via the onboard amp. Once you set the system to stereo via the test menu, the left channel will be output via JAMMA pins L (neg) and 10 (pos), the right channel via the 4 pin JST connector located on the front right of the I/O. The pinout is as follows:-

1=NC
2=NC
3=Right +
4=Right -

Capcom I/O

The Capcom I/O is fully compatible with the Namco 2x6. It uses the standard Capcom CP2/3 kick harness. However, the Capcom I/O uses a standard JVS 8 pin amp connector for power, where as the Namco 2x6 employs a 6 pin power connector. A JVS power supply adapter which comes bundled with 2x6 kits may let you use a Capcom IO to power the Namco 246 out-of-the-box with some success (this is confirmed to work with Capcom Fighting Jam, but not with more power-hungry titles such as Tekken 4). The adaptor is shown on the cabinet connections diagram in 2x6 kit manuals. Alternatively with this adapter a JVS power supply can be used to power the 2x6 directly, leaving the existing JAMMA power supply to power the I/O board.
