Re: Samurai Spirits

It's not just "collectors". The people who weren't impressed by SFIV, SFV or KOFXIV are pointing out their lack of interest. If they weren't impressed ten years ago, why would they be impressed now? If you're judging a game you haven't played and have barely seen then I really don't care what your ...

Re: Samurai Spirits

I'm looking forward to it, but collectors on sites like this get all grumpy when there's no sprite art, so it's not really enjoyable to talk about it here. Just look at the comments, we've barely seen anything and it's already getting called soulless. Okay.

are there any arcade games outputting more than 720p?
I assume Taito Type X-4 games in Vewlix Diamonds like SFV are running 1080p, but I don't actually know.

You're right in that most aren't, it really only makes sense if you're using a console or PC to power it over original hardware.

Re: Vewlix: replace screen with OLED 1080p monitor?

There are very few options for 32" screens that have acceptable input lag, and OLED isn't on the list. I read OLED has 0.1ms input lag (nothing), I'm wrong ? The processing is as important as the tech, you can't just assume input lag is not an issue. You might be able to find a 32" OLED, I have no ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Not to state the obvious, but this is a commercial system for operators to put on location and earn, not something aimed at home collectors. The math is different in that case. I've got functioning eyes, I see the issues everyone else is pointing out too, some of these titles feel low rent. I'm sure...

how thick are the seat cushions?
Pretty thick. If you're familiar with the plush covered candy stools these are easily 2 to 3 times more padded.

Re: Versus city 4-6 buttons

Buttons 4-6 don't work on the Jamma harness at all, that's why you need a kick harness, named after the kick buttons on Street Fighter. Any 6 button game will have a connector on the PCB for those buttons to be directly connected. What you have might be a horrible hack, or it might actually be corr...

Re: New Jamma game - SKYCURSER

I wish it was a vertical game, easier to swap into my shmups cab, I have so many things competing for space in my horizontal cabs.

Think I'll wait for reviews, but tempted to order, I love the sprites.

I assumed he meant the actual control panel. If you mean the plastic surround that the control panel drops into then go for it, I've used Magic Eraser on that no problem.

Re: Paint, sand, polish, wax...

I found this because I have the same question about Blast City specifically. I have heard that novus 123 plastic polish can help the marquee area and possibly screen coating if scratched. For the fiberglass body cleaning with simple green/magic eraser and touching up with white nail polish (what co...

Re: UD-CPS2: Fully Consolized Capcom Play System 2

That man is hated by so many collectors for ruining so many A boards. Just get a supergun instead of trashing parts so they can no longer work in cabinets.

Re: Do seimitsu dustwashers go over or under the cp?

LS-56 washers go on top of the panel, and it's normal to not have another washer under it. Proceed!

Re: Astro city vs New Astro city for mame cab?

I have both styles, and the difference is negligible outside of the details, and since you're buying used and not new condition of the game in question is way more important than some minor changes. For your purposes it honestly won't make any difference.

SoCal lurker checking in.
