New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
Could someone provide me with the link to the recommended cables to buy to connect to i/o boards? I’ve searched the Alien posts and just cannot find it.
Were the boards ever produced for the jaw/tongue? Is there a guide to convert from a single board to 2 board config? My friend has this game and trying to fix the xeno jaw right now and figured if we have to do major work should do it right. Not even sure if he has a single board version but I know he at least wants spares of certain parts and I assume this is one of them.
Short answer: yes
Long answer: The one motor controller board is(was) available on eBay, and the other Arduino based board was ordered from the OEM manufacture in small quantity. The newer wiring harnesses have to be made from hand, the Xeno head itself needs to be the newer design, which means trying to source one of those too. It's a complicated upgrade beyond just sourcing the parts, and you'll need a reference game, experience programming Arduino's, etc.
