The official Konami PWB(A)404944B (GU707-JE) adaptor that allows JAMMA games to be played, pictured right

Other alternatives include:
Namco (Cyberlead)
River Service (not recommended!)
Custom built Irken Labs (Invzim) Jammafier, a brilliant adaptor that can include a Tri-Sync Helper to remove the need for switches and/or cable swaps


I/O Compatability

Windy II IO.jpg

The Konami PWB405270B IO has been tested as working with the following:

  • Taito Type X2 (Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition)


The Konami PWB405270B IO is NOT compatible with the following:

  • Some Sega Naomi games (example SFZ3 Upper, Capcom vs SNK...)

ERROR. JAMMA I/O BOARD(S) DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SWITCHES OR FUNCTIONS.

More info can be found here:

  • Tatsunoko vs Capcom

Some buttons result in the IO detecting a coin being inserted. The game is fully playable, but the coin sound gets somewhat annoying after a while

Screen curvature compatabilty

Cabinets that appear to have the same screen curvature as the Windy II are Blast city, Net city and New Versus city.

Tube make/number Model Chassis Notes
Toshiba A68LBT696X (7K) K29CH55 Toshiba PB7534
Toshiba A68KZN696X (7D) K29CH55 Toshiba PB7534
Toshiba A68KZN696X (6G) Unknown Nanao MS-2930-S Also used in Blast City cabs
Toshiba A68KSM696X (9L) Unknown Nanao MS-2934 Tube is also compatible with a MS-2931 chassis
Hitachi A68K5A30X (D) Unknown Nanao MS9 compatible Screen curvature is not exactly the same, but more compatible than tubes from an Astro / NAC / E2 /Windy 1
Sanwa 29E31S Unknown Unknown Unknown if this screen curvature will fit, but it has been suggested it will

Last resort if unable to source a compatible tube - source a Windy 1, 'borrow' the bezel, stick an MS8/9 tube in it :twisted:
