Re: Items spotted on eBay

Don't see this everyday - NOS Naomi CF kit:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sega-Naomi-Com ... 3096874158

Probably the first legit CF kit I've ever seen ever.

EOJ's tracking thread seems to indicate a kit sold recently at Surugaya for not much more than this...
It was a bare PCB, not a kit. Sold for 149k yen last month.
Fair point, but that bare PCB with broken 1P inputs on YAJ just sold for 17K yen more. :awe: Makes no sense!

Why on Earth is a loose Pink Sweets PCB where the 1P side inputs apparently don't work going for over 100K yen? :wtf: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l500251500 Oh, of course, proxy bidders. :awe: EOJ's tracking thread seems to indicate a kit sold recently at Surugaya for not much more ...

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

scramble is a known bootlegger on YAJ. Most Japanese collectors who are active on online marketplaces are aware of this, although it is totally possible that some unwitting person will get bamboozled.

Sure wish it was easy to import cabs, I'd get that Aero Table in a heartbeat.

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

There has been a long-standing issue with consistent input latency during gameplay that has caused a number of complaints from the competitive scene.

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

Why on Earth would you think that hooking up an external controller would somehow introduce input lag? The reason for this addition is two-fold: You have younger players who prefer to play on pads (or just pad players in general), and you also have other players who prefer to play on their own equip...

Makes sense. I figured those prices were mad, good to have confirmation. No plans to buy any of that. :awe:

Re: clone noir 15khz issue

I'm pretty sure you can't. I think that thing is just a pass-through, I'd be surprised if it did much of anything else.

Most likely you need to add some resistors to the RGBS lines - try 220ohm and see what happens.

The first batch is sold out at the moment, but this is a fully plug and play solution for any JAMMA board on a New Net City.

Re: exA-Arcadia

I still like the idea of the platform, but if they can't manage to get any notable titles ported to it... it's effectively dead in the water. I don't think that the current lineup can generate any significant income for operators. Funny because every title we have put on test in Japan has performed...
