If anyone has a VS cable and would be willing to open up the box in the center of the cable and post a picture of both the front and back of the PC board inside, I'd appreciate it.

Excellent! Thank you very much, I really appreciate it.

If anyone has the official cable, please open it up. As you can see from the pics above, it's not that complicated inside, but the 3rd party vs cable has a molded IC. Hopefully the official one doesn't.

Also, if anyone has a scanner and wants to help out, a couple of high resolution scans of each side of the board (either official or dragoncast) would be greatly appreciated. I need to get the resistor values and a be able to draw an accurate trace layout.

Thanks again.

Before I got my VS cable, I was going to make my own. Sure, there are plans online, but those aren't for the actual VS cable. Those plans use a specialized IC for the RS232 interface.

I don't understand why Sega didn't just make it do the DC used a null modem cable instead of this special type of cable.
