Re: Ever gotten a highly anticipated game and been disappointed?

Still SF4.. killed the series dead for me RIP I hate you so much ono sf4 (the entire series) brought evo from 200 man tournaments to 200 man brackets. It lead to communities popping up literally all over the world to compete in new majors basically invented for 4. sf4 made brought many many thousan...

Re: SFV: Arcade Edition Coming to Japan Arcades in 2019

SfV is a terrible game that doesn’t deserve to hold the street fighter title. The usb controller inputs make sense. Though I’ve been around competitive sf enough to know that, unfortunately, it will do virtually nothing to stop complaints. Some (western) players will just blame the pcb inside their ...

clone noir 15khz issue

I have 2 clone namco noir's. the lcd's inside are sharp LK315T3LA31. I bought them from a friend in las vegas. He hosted a weekly fighting game night on the cabs. No one in attendance ever noticed an issue with the various cps2 games. Since I bought the cabs and moved to california, I haven't been a...

Re: MVS Cart PCB Burning

Looks like the NEO-CMC chip on the bottom board caught fire. I'm going to guess the complete CHAFIO board must have been replaced, because the chip has a million pins and would be an absolute pain to solder in. Look for anything odd about the board just to be sure. Honestly, if it works, I wouldn't...

Re: PCB Wrapping 101

These boards have been in commercial use for 30+ years. Im surprised there isn't more consensus about storage.

Also, I really wish every manufacturer went the cps2 case route. Maybe this is paranoia, but I'm afraid of breaking something every time I interact with a pcb :/

Re: Naomi Netbooting enquiry

You just netboot another one. It will overwrite the old game. So while the game is active, running the netboot tool on my laptop will start the process again? Sorry for the dumb questions - I'm getting old :awe: Yes. Also if you load a game and don’t power on the Naomi for a while it will just tell...

Most Cave pcbs has taken a dive. For ex not so long ago DFK 1.5 went for crazy money, now they are dropping. One has been on Surugaya a long time.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

Where's the fun in playing these games upscaled to 4k? These are meant for nostalgics and they usually care for resolutions, scanlines and overall fidelity of their favourite old games As far as serious play is concerned many players will just be playing it on whatever 1080p monitor they play sfv o...

Re: You've Got Grail!?? AKA The Valuation Thread

I watched an eBay auction for a cps 1.5 Saturday night slam masters go unsold. Seller wanted had a bin of $722.

I’m trying to determine a reasonable offer. I don’t care for slammasters at all really. I just want to swap in a partial Cadillacs and dinosaurs board set I have.

Thanks :D

i didn't think that could be done due to the qsound board. I learned something new today.
