"...I've been working on an adapter to connect a C128's 80 column video port directly to a video-game-to-VGA upscaler board such as the GBS-8200 or 8220 (i.e. ones sometimes called "JAMMA" boards). The C128 produces digital RGBIHV output pretty much identical to the old CGA video standard, while some of those upscaler devices require analog RGB signals (without a separate intensity signal), and composite H+V sync. This board seeks to address this mismatch.
My intent here is to reasonably duplicate the standard C128/CGA palette as described in the article on Wikipedia, including a suitable "brown fix" circuit.
At one end is the C128 video port connection. At the other end is a row of five holes to receive the wires from the scaler board's video-input pigtail, and two more holes next to t…
We have sold the 586220 Diagnostic Cartridge for many years and there has always been other sellers with the harness, but sadly those sellers are no longer trading and others are selling the harness for over $80, so we are now making them.
The PCBs for the user port have now arrived and the harnesses are on the way from China.
Hopefully a great way to get the Diagnostic cartridge, Harness with user port cartridge, full printed manaul all for under £50!
