Python 1

Konami (2002-2004)

The python 1 is an arcade PCB based on the first version of USA FAT PS2 console board (GH-004 from around july-december 2000) which just happens to be used without any casing. The primary IO board uses a pair of JAMMA connectors to attach to the machine. The IO board is located within the main PCB housing and connects to the PlayStation unit via iLink connector. On the IO itself, one JAMMA blade is very close to standard JAMMA and handles game input while the other has a proprietary pinout for lighting.

The unit is designed to output at 15khz video modes only.

🔗Repair Tips

🔗 LED mod (replacing lightbulbs with LEDs)

Similarly to the BemaniPC, a keepwarm voltage is generated by 9 resistors on the power distribution board. They are labeled R61,R62,R63, R65,R66,R67, R69,R70,R71

Unfortunately you cannot bypass the power distribution board with the python as a shift register is used to encode/decode lamp data rather than individual pins.

You can still desolder the resistors to perform the LED mod.
