Ralph / alienmame might be your man for the Zero Gunner one. I know he collects Psikyo scrolls. I'll shoot him a message.

Re: Seibu Mobo and games not working

Why would you try swapping the carts between motherboards when both were working fine? I'd certainly not recommend swapping SPI carts between mobos if you can avoid it. It's not like MVS. Have you swapped them back and they are not working on their mobos they originally had? If so I suspect you didn...

Re: Seibu Mobo and games not working

Did you switch the jumper and wait for the countdown timer? If you interrupt the countdown process I think it can brick.

Re: Help clean extreme dirt from neo geo mvs pcb

I would take off the battery, remove anything socketed then run it through the dishwasher. Make sure it's super dry before reinserting chips and testing.

Re: Need a polish recommendation for AC bezel

Not cheap but I always use Novus. You can get a kit with grades 1 2 and 3 off Amazon. The three have different abrasiveness. Works a treat. Depending on how scratched it is you might not need all 3 grade.

I could have written Franco's answer myself, exactly how I feel although the more I think about it the more Kern makes sense. I reckon I'll going to try a bit of a hybrid next time I power a cab on.

Where have you been picking your new boxes up from Mark? I've had a bit of a search but not found a really competitively priced UK source.

Re: Super Nintardbros!

Good to see you back Berries. You'll have no problem getting into BOTW, it's awesome. Just finished Super Metroid on the SNES mini this evening. Probably play through Link to the Past again next I guess. Never gets old.

Re: How to remove rusty bolts

The screw head is stripped now. I'd try cutting across the top of the head from one side to the other with a Dremmel or similar and using a flat head screwdriver.
