Re: Dodonpachi Saidaioujou EXA LABEL

I know that it would be too expensive but ideally, as a universal conversion kit, it should include: - Vewlix marquee + instruction strip - Noir / Lindbergh marquee + instruction strip - New Net City / Naomi marquee + instruction strip Of course, that's a ton of paper, but it would fit any situatio...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Thank you Shou for clearing things up. I did believe all economic activities will be slowed down from the COVID-19, including arcade. Wish for everyone to be the best they can be during uncertain times like this. As for Tanoshimasu, it seems that developers have power on how many units can be made. ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

In regards to that announcement of Aka & Blue Type R not going to produce anymore carts, I am not surprised about that. Aka & Blue's legacy will be fondly remembered as the shmup that brought back arcades before SDOJ EXA, if that game gets released when the pandemic is mostly over and done with. Add...

Re: Tokyo's first arcade game bar

https://twitter.com/thuncra/status/1295974910011965440 :palm: What's even a bigger offense is that they are single player cabinets. On one hand, they comply with social distance, but on the other, it feels like wasted space to have one player only when the pandemic is over. I have seen a fair share...

Re: exA-Arcadia

At least it's a good think that Exa Arcadia are doing a lot more location tests in Japan to make up for the cancelled "Exa Arcadia Festival". Various games went on location test and more coming, such as Nippon Marathon Turbo Hyper Running, Blazing Chrome AC, Fight of the Gods Arcade Edition, and Sup...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Arcade Heroes has released a comparison video featuring Iron Crypticle (Home) and Lightning Knights (Arcade). There is a great deal of differences in gameplay balance in addition to the UI.
I favor comparison videos like these to detect differences easily.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Games have to load once selected; it's not as if they're running in the background, they are started on demand. The load time isn't terribly bad - only 10 seconds or so - but the screen just goes blank or a random color during the loading process, which probably makes a casual observer think they b...

Re: exA-Arcadia

There are no in game loading times of note with the shmups and the games don't take long to boot from the menu. It's a non issue. I'm not very knowledgeable on these things, but Neo Geo wasn't a PC, the data is read from the ROM, no data transfer, no launching drivers and such. And I'm sure they're...

It's maybe getting finally released soon? https://twitter.com/RealStrictlyLTD/status/1265953462761607168 For anyone not familiar with it, it's a forced scrolling 3-player platformer made by Westone, similar to Monster Lair. It failed location testing back in the day and was shelved. M2's had it for...

Re: The : I just found out thread !!!

I just found out that Sega is doing "fog computing" with arcade games in Japan to allow gamers to play after business hours. You know what that means: HOME VIDEO GAMES GALORE AND DEATH OF ARCADES!!! :lolno: ;) (that last sentence is sarcasm from an anti-arcade gamer).

Re: exA-Arcadia

Honestly, I am more pumped about Vritra Hexa every time the developer posts updates.

The latest video shows 2 player in attract mode. Special team mechanic is electric shock that most likely cancels bullets by bumping into each other.

That is one of those great news for all cave fans everywhere. One of those "bigger niche" companies.

Re: exA-Arcadia

I can relate to you in the same way on wanting arcade games to be more available globally. I tried getting various operators within my home area, SF/East Bay and Santa Clara County, to invest in Exa Arcadia. However, not many seem to be interested in getting kits only since they have to provide addi...
