Re: NNC surround yellowing

Is this unavoidable? Just noticed my NNC monitor surround is starting to yellow a bit. I bought this NOS 6 years ago and I'm pretty sure everything matched back then, unless I'm going mad. The CP upper is the original and that has remained white, as has that bit in the middle (I forget the correct ...

Re: What's it worth?

Folks, where does Fast Striker MVS LE sit on the price scale today?

Is USD$700 a ridiculous amount?

Re: Shenmue 3 kickstarter ?

Lots of hate in this thread, not sure why - lovely game series. There hasn't been a quality game where you can feed a cat since.

I've backed it, and obviously others have too given they've already hit the reserve (with 31 days to go).

Each to their own I guess!

Re: What's it worth?

About to start cleaning out the closet and have no idea what things are worth these days.

Fast Striker MVS LE full kit (with original case/posters/soundtrack etc)?

Many thanks.

Re: What's it worth?

Bit of a long shot here, but looking to potentially offload a Capcom Mini Cute which was sprayed black at some stage - reasonable condition (ie. the paintwork could be better, though it's not terrible), good monitor, new speakers (Alpine jobbies), new control panel parts and repro artwork, FrancoB f...

Re: [HELP] Namco System 357 issues

It could just be a case of mine being busted but when you power just the PS3 portion it turns on then beeps to turn off. nvs, If you could dig up the pinout that would be great. I'd rather not get the pinout wrong and fry the board (tried looking at the interface PCB but it still wasn't quite clear...

Re: [HELP] Namco System 357 issues

Yes, you'll need 12V DC to the 2-pin connector as you've mentioned. It powers the JVS board (which the video signal also feeds through, iirc).

Can't remember the pinout off the top of my head, but shouldn't be hard to figure out. I can dig out one to confirm if you're stuck.

Re: JP Lindbergh SD owners ?

i`m irritated, are you talking about the eu units ? No talking about the Japanese cab FYI, Eu and Japanese cabs share the same monitors, same silver metal parts, same plastics, same speakers, same electronic components obviously. The UK ones have metal work built here to cut the costs of importing ...

Re: JP Lindbergh SD owners ?

i was undert he impression that the jp units use a toshiba lcd with protective glass front. None of the Japan ones I've seen had glass front, and the Tosh screen was pretty shoddy.. Actually, I think mine is glass? Originally I thought it was plastic but from memory when I ripped it apart properly ...

Why's that then?
It's fairly bloated.. Even including shipping.

Edit: Apologies, just realized it's going via Fedex which would be more costly, so probably a fair price in the end.

Re: Sony Vita

Am I right in thinking it's region free but you can only have one PSN account so you have to pick a side for digital content? Correct. The way I see it - use a non local PSN account to enable you to get import titles without having to worry about shipping, customs and so on. Buy local games on phys...

Re: Bubble Bobble washed out picture & no sound (PIC HEAVY)

As already mentioned, -5v is likely to be your issue. It has caused dodgy washed out video for me without -5v on an official BB PCB in the past.

Re: Type X/X2 on a Lindbergh

When you power up the cab, is the JVS I/O actually powered? I've noticed the Sun PSU seems to want the Lind motherboard attached to drive the ancillary items (control panel fluro, I/O..). Not sure if it's due to load expectations or just some wiring on the Lind <-> PSU harness. In any case, it sound...

Only when setting the monitor to "wide" as the resolution is not native. But again, this is a Toshiba monitor, not Sanwa. YMMV.
