Konami Windy II
JVS to JAMMA adaptor
The official Konami PWB(A)404944B (GU707-JE) adaptor that allows JAMMA games to be played, pictured right
Other alternatives include:
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
The Konami PWB405270B IO has been tested as working with the following:
- Taito Type X2 (Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition)
- Sega Naomi - Dip Switch 4 or 7 (depending on I/O) needs to be turned ON in order for some (mostly Capcom) games to work. The JVS menu needs to show COIN 2 SLOT Thanks to Yosai for translating the manual (image to the right) and testing
- Tatsunoko vs Capcom - Dip Switch 4 or 7 (depending on I/O) needs to be turned ON, otherwise some buttons result in the I/O detecting a coin being inserted.
The Konami PWB405270B IO is NOT compatible with the following:
- 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
- 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:
tl;dr - Some Naomi games check for Analogue functionality on the I/O (which the Konami doesn't have) even if the game doesn't use/require it
The above info is no longer correct - turning Dip switch 4 or 7 ON rectifies the error and games become fully playable. Most likely cause of the issue is the games expecting/requiring 2 x Coin slots, whereas the Konami only supports 1 by default.
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.

|Toshiba A68KZN696X (7D)||K29CH55||Toshiba PB7534||Toshiba PB-9430-1 compatible|
|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:
