It's a sony bvm 20f1e can't stick with it if I want to play my dreamcast in 480p using vga. Super hard to come by a xm29 so looking into alternative vga monitors, any recommendations would be helpful looking for a 30-36 inch monitor. Ireland has no used market for monitors so looking at the UK and if i find one it would be a car and ferry job to pick something up I reckon.

Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for a long time, and decided it's about time I register. I'm into retro home systems and arcade games. I have 2 Neo Geo Candy cabs, and a good selection of MVS, CPS2, NAOMI, and other various arcade games. I'm really enjoy STGs.

Hi Everyone,

Longtime lurker on the Facebook page, first time on the forum. I own a number of Candy Cabs and occasionally record videos on them

Video Series "Arcade Candy"
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWGCL9MQTnZXkKPuVDOJhfkbsav47uOIr

And here are my three main Cabs

And I just picked up these two beauties today, which is what has led me to posting here tonight

Hello,

A quick introduction. I've been into Arcades since about 2008. Built a MAME cab with integrated Dreamcast and then got properly bitten by the Arcade bug.
I now have a Sega Naomi Universal, Atari Pole Position, in progress Pac-Man Cabaret scratch build with original Pac-Man board and a generic empty cabaret machine that has been converted to MAME. I'm also saving up for a dedicated Nintendo cab.

I've been a member on UKVAC for quite a while now, but this seems to be the place to discuss 90s candy cabs.

My Sega Naomi cab has a Net Dimm installed as well as a beautiful Nanao MS-2932-S monitor. I've had this setup for several years now and I love playing CVS2 on it :D

I have a small Pc/laptop that I would now like to install in the base of the Universal cab so that I can have a MAME setup alongside the Naomi. I have several questions about doing this, including power the laptop inside the cab, but though I would introduce myself first.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a former candy cab collector and am just now getting back into the hobby. I sold all but one of my cabs about 7 years ago (Naomi Uni's, Naomi Net City, Megalo 410, Neo 25 and a Neo 29 which is the only cab I still own). At that time I switched over to pinball machines but I've recently been bitten by the "bug" again.

So, I'm looking to pickup a candy to play CPS2/3, Naomi and Atomiswave games. Thinking about a New Net City (which finding the I/O converter is going to be like winning the lottery it appears) or an Egret 3 or Atomiswave SD. I'm not the most technical person in the world so please humor me with my tech support questions. Any advice on where to buy one of the above cabinets here in the US would be greatly appreciated. I'm located just outside of Richmond, VA.

Thanks!

My instagram with pictures: https://www.instagram.com/p/BN8yAE_BiIK ... -by=nesfrk

I have been in to arcades since I played them as a kid, at the local amusement park and kiosks here in Sweden.

Greatest memory I have from that time is when we paid one of our friends to beat Final Fight, he managed to get the furthest with one credit so everyone placed their bets on him :)

Other arcade memories from the local kiosk include the release of Street Fighter 2, nothing like beating the older kids with hadouken spamming!
Also the release of Prehistoric Isle in 1930, those dinosaurs sure made a huge impression on us kids back then.

Hope to lurk around here and get to know people, if you are visiting Sweden and are in the neighborhood, don´t be afraid to send me a message!

Hi guys, I'm new here and a huge fan of Neo Geo!

Grew up on SNES/Gameboy/Megadrive/Gamegear but as the years went on I chopped and changed, but never played or even saw an AES.

I'm now of an age where I can re-collect and see what all the fuss was/is about...

Well, I love it!

So I'm here to venture further into the world of Neo Geo and arcades etc.

I believe I need to contribute more in order to be allowed to use all features of the site, so any pointers or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers everyone!

Hi all!! Just got into the arcade scene and love it but need help in this cabinet I have bought ITS A 4 BUTTON 2 PLAYER ONE! Could someone point me in the right direction? Its a tekken 3 cab with Namco 12 system with the hope of putting a pandoras 3 box in it! However it has a jamma and the edge connector for buttons 3 and 4 and when the Pandora goes in I have no luck!! No controls work at all:( do I need a harness to bypass the jamma and edge to one? I see that pin 27 and 28 are earther and on the cab harness 24-26 have been soldered together! Any help would be great!

Thanks

Hi all.
I live in Denmark, and have my own small arcade with 26 0ldsch00l games, and last year I bought 2 SEGA Blast Citys (the reason I registrated here)

3-4 times a year I have fellow arcade enthusiast coming to The Shed for an entire weekend, to play games and hang out, telling pirate stories and such :)
Looking forward to see some great setups here :)

Cheers
Michael
