Please add me to the list as well. Thanks!
Beharbros, will there be a physical VGA pass through within the Akura? Or is all internally wired through a PCB or something?
Reason i ask is I was interested in the new LightConn Dreamcast Light gun mod from Chris which uses a VGA pass through only. Here was my reply from him when asking the question:
"Unfortunately, LightConn is VGA-compatible only.
Dreamcast doesn't output native HDMI and any box will actually take its VGA output and just convert it internally to HDMI.
It's just the same as with taking the VGA output of the Dreamcast and pass it through an HDMI converter/upscaler box.
So, in this case, if you don't have access to the VGA port then the LightConn won't work."
It can be done. Akura has an IDC cable connector just like the other boxes we build. The VGA cable of this lightgun can be soldered to the pins of that connector. Or when you order it, you can request a premodified one.
@beharius Will you change the DC-VGABox connectors/cable with Akura? I am asking because my haneo was working well until faulty contacts started to appear making first the red color to disappear and later on the entire VGA signal. It seems that the faulty contact came from the inside of the DC video male connector. Thanks!
We continuously upgrade the cables.
The pins inside the connector could be bend, it needs to be aligned via tweezers or a needle. We can send a replacement cable if it's broken totally.
Thank you for your answer, I will contact you via pm.
add me to the list please
Is there an actual pre-order list for this?
I'm interested in one.
Yes, we are keeping a list. There won't be a stock problem though.
Beharbros do you mean request a pre modified Akura box or a pre modified Lightgun?
Also if there is a list please add me too
Pre modified Akura
You indeed have great customer support!
Received my new cable when requested
My Toro is going strong!
Surely will buy the Akura when it's finished.
Thanks, enjoy it!

No need to rush. We won't have a stock problem. It's a mass production, not a small batch.
Put me in the list please
