Re: exA-Arcadia

I contacted the 'webmaster' of exa.ac and received a reply to confirm they were only testing the store for launch. $2500 for the motherboard is in line with other manufactures, if that turns out to be the final retail price. I hope in future a consideration for offering discounts on games purchased ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I've only just noticed the attract mode :awe: it appears that the system shows the game located in each slot and cycles between them.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Testing the first production batch in the home market and intended operating environment has many benefits, not least any minor snagging issues can resolved. Typically where you have a distributor arrangement you can't offer fixed availability or purchase price. Show Me Holdings Co is acting as the ...

Re: Xeno Crisis - Bitmap Bureau (MVS)

I have pre-ordered an MVS copy of this and eagerly awaiting shipment. I don't expect to receive it until October/November though. I believe they have been developing the Neo version in parallel with Megadrive. Only a pure guess and and I could be completely wrong, but they might need a little a bit...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I believe it's better for the system to focus on HD than trying to cover all basis and increasing the costs. Developers will be looking at the platform for ease to port games onto and off the system, just like other PC based platforms. exA is aimed at the commercial sector where majority of arcades ...

Is that what the carts look like?
Yes.

perhaps the colour blue denotes the cartridge is for field test only and the red colour is the standard game centre release? and apparently you must locate the exA motherboard on top of a Taito X2 or X3 for it to function. :shifty:

They released a second video with footage from the Mega Drive version a few months back. https://youtu.be/t1l_b1xskcE They wrote about plans for the Neo Geo version on FB. ........As for the Neo Geo version, we’re adding a number of enhancements that just aren’t technically feasible on the Mega Driv...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I have some general questions;

1. What is the expected retail price of the motherboard + game
2. Can a game be swapped between different motherboards?

Thanks

Re: exA-Arcadia

Looking forward to this.

If there is not going to be an official reseller in Europe then might it be worth providing a demo unit to somebody with PC hardware knowledge (AndyGeezer?) so that we have a local point of technical assistance.

Re: Arcooda - Australia's porfolio of modern arcade machines

I'm not knocking the product or company, but Is it not just a cewlix (Chinese vewlix clone) with a different control panel to cunningly disguise it?

Re: Capcom Home Arcade

I also like the stick design as it could pass for some obscure 1990's rental system only found in Japanese hotels :batlove: Final burn is well optimised for CPS hardware and should 'in theory' be accurate if they stick in on a nice ARM board. Current price is a little too high to tempt me, but will ...

Re: Xeno Crisis - Bitmap Bureau (MVS)

A scaling effect would be awesome but is it really necessary? I mean...you see the entire room on one screen. Maybe only add it when transitioning from a cleared room into a new one? You are probably right in terms of the level design. ..but any excuse for some crazy zoom action, Super Dodge Ball i...

Re: Xeno Crisis - Bitmap Bureau (MVS)

I went for the MVS standard kit. 8-)

If they could add a slight zoom/shrink of the play field as you run around that would be next level coolness.
