> A JAMMA adapter for a non-JAMMA game?

Jamma adapters are specifically for non-Jamma games. I have one for my Vs. Super Mario Bros. board, early Capcom, Sega etc.

I'm not familiar with them and I can't make any promises on DK hardware since I haven't set it up but here is a readymade.

https://www.mikesarcade.com/cgi-bin/store.pl?sku=NIN2JAMMA

Plug the board into that then that into a supergun that is setup to record video.

I don't know how that would invalidate anything. If anything you're going to add some form of lag and make the game more difficult.

That level of scrutiny obviously can never be part of the situation.

I think twin galaxies already mixes the 2. I think the biggest issue is saying it's from real hardware and actually using an emulator.
