Re: exA-Arcadia

I know the UK doesn’t account for all of Europe, but I reckon the number of Arcades here that would be interested in purchasing this is in single digits. Possibly only Andy at Arcade Club. I can see why Europe is not a priority if this is repeated across the continent.

Looks like a converted cab from a kiddy game.

Re: Astro and Blast City Cabinets how much from within the UK?

Generally speaking, an Astro is £500 (knackered) to £900 (very nice), Blast about £600-£1000 depending on condition.

Re: Streets of Rage 4

I wonder if you can just grand upper your way through the whole game like SoR2.

Re: Nanao 2931 / Blast City Monitor issue

Interesting they said they changed the flyback, I was under the impression these were long out of production and only ever available to certain repairers.

Re: Help Opening New Astro City Coin Lockbox

Sega made the coin box keys different to the rest. It could be one of hundreds of their lockbox keys.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Akai Katana Shin Black Label for exA-Arcadia, calling it now. That would be a huge bummer. They've made enough versions of Akai Katana already. Hope it's something more exciting. If that's a starting point for new CAVE releases, I'm ok with that. Besides AK is awesome ;) Must admit, it took a while...

I’ll probably get that when it gets to £15, not a day one purchase.

Re: Paprium

There’s a 9000+ post thread on Sega-16 about it all if you have a quiet afternoon and want to see the drama unfold. My favourite bit is the launch party they had.

Re: exA-Arcadia

I'm presuming the a&b is the premium launch title and the steamers :shifty: will have varying entry points . A $1000+ bucks for some of them seems a tab much. Since they are being inspired by the Mvs in a way they need to factor that and not what Cave boards were sold for ! Yeah $1800 for mainboard...

Re: exA-Arcadia

How much are operators expected to pay for these games? :eh:

Slam and Jam looks like a **** version of NBA Jam, which a real PCB can be had for under £200....

Re: Konami Windy II Beeping Sound / No Video

The same tube doesn’t necessarily mean the same yoke. Nanao MS8 and MS9 can both come on the same Toshiba tube, but the yokes are not compatible and can damage the chassis or yoke.

Re: A new Neo Geo game just announced...

I got Fast Striker on PS4 delivered today. So there’s a decent chance of a play-asia exclusive release of this eventually.

Re: Traditional Console Death! Long Live Streaming?

If games go digital only I’ll likely only buy games I definitely want to play, and doubt I’ll pick something up to take a chance on it. That’ll be good for my wallet, but not for my collector/hoarder mentality.

Re: Countries with candy cabs?

I didn't see any candies until the NAOMI came about, which only just counts really. NAOMI's were pretty common to see in the early 2000's.
