Hi folks! My name is Adam.

I've been lurking around the forum for a few months now as I started getting into shoot em ups in early 2016 until I hit up an arcade with candy cabs a few weeks ago which pushed me over the edge. I want some cabs in my home! Of all people, my wife suggested I go ahead and start working on arcade hardware! Who am I to refuse her instructions! :awe:

I've amassed a small collection of consoles and games over the years dabbling in retro stuff more recently. Building my Saturn's shmup collection has taken priority!

Other hobbies of mine include building mechanical keyboards, board games, and being lazy.

I'm looking forward to getting some cabinets and games for my upstairs man-cave as well as getting to you know you fine people! See you out there...

Hello all! I have been a constant lurker for years, but only recently have I registered because I may be the proud new owner of a New Net City, or possibly even a Blast city. I haven't yet decided so i came here to get some feedback. Thanks

Evening Arcade fans. Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and won a cabinet on eBay. Just waiting for Retrologistics to bring it up and I will be getting going on a project I have wanted to do for about 15 years but only just got enough space to do.

I have gone for a Naomi Universal that has seen better days and has no Naomi system in it. The monitor, PSU and sound are all in good condition though which is ideal for the launchbox or hyperspin PC I am planning on fitting.

I have come to get involved here as you lot seem to really know your stuff. My long term plans for the cabinet include a strip and repaint, a new control panel, acquiring and fitting a marquee and creating a full set of artwork, hopefully i am in the right place to get a few tips and learn from those who have been there and done it.

See y'all on the forum

Hi all,

Chris here. Registered a couple days ago. Wanted to join, in order to post a recent repair to the CPS-1 repair logs - fixing muffled/barely audible audio on a SF2:WW 'A' board by replacing the on-board audio amp. 8-) Don't see that fix yet represented on the repair logs.

A little about me:

Bought my first cab around 2003 - a bootleg SF2 cab running rainbow or accelerator or one of those detestable versions. A couple buddies and I threw in on it together, and it went to their house which was the party house at the time. Quickly replaced the bootleg board with a SF2:HF board, and soon had a switcher with NBA JAM, Marvel Vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat, and others. It eventually became, and remains today, a MAME cab.

Followed that with purchase of a SSF2 dedicated big blue (serial #267), from a local arcade that was liquidating a lot of games at the time, but remains in business today.

Added a couple Donkey Kong's (one blue, then a red) to the mix.

Now, I'm on the seemingly endless hunt for a good deal on a candy cab. My buddy had a Capcom Q25 (which we didn't even know at the time what it really was other than a sweet Capcom it for $350 from an arcade in LA...about 8 years ago). That cab is long since gone, after the monitor died, it got dissected to try to fix (not by me), and well, hopefully it found a better home and a renewed life. That sparked my interest in candy cabs, and I am now at the point that I must have one for my collection. :P

Anyway, looking forward to being a part of these board. I'm also active on KLOV, Donkey Kong Forums, and occasionally Shoryuken.

Hello all... getting a Blast City soon and in my research have definitely seen this is the best place to hang. Can't wait to talk shop.

Hello hello,
I have been collecting for 2 years now and have a lot of projects on hand. 2 empty a back, 1 complete pole position (non workimg) and 3 partial cab, working neo geo, working neo mini, hang on converion, non working choplifter, one Blast City. You can say that I got hooked. Recently friends and I score 10 non working candies. This forum seem like the place to be for candies (you will hear a lot from us as we get them up and running). I figure I should stop lurking and join in on the fun
