Re: FT/FS: Sailor moon Japan

Damn, crazy how much this game has gone up in price. I bought it back in 2010 or so for $200. Kinda regret selling it so soon, but whatever. :D
Great game! I'm sure the buyer will enjoy it.

Re: SEGA AERO CITY cabinets

Not trying to threadcrap - @drako125, why not just buy from a US seller? KC in LA gets Aeros frequently, and will ship anywhere. Seems much easier, will probably be the same price, if not cheaper, and no dealing with customs.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Ah, you're right! Forgot about that whole fiasco, I briefly heard something about a dispute over music, then some sketchy contract business, and the deal died quickly thereafter. :(

Re: exA-Arcadia

Devil Engine seems like it'd be a good fit for the platform, especially in its home market. Unfortunate that the rights to the game are in a bit of limbo at the moment.

Re: Best version of Pandoras box

I've heard the 4 (not the 4s) is supposed to be the best of the bunch. Least compatibility issues and best performance. Haven't heard a lot about the newer ones.

Re: exA-Arcadia

How do you guys measure lag? :think: It's not super scientific. Basically you take high frame rate camera and you point it towards the cab so that it shows both the controls and the screen. Then you go to the input test and press a button. Then you take that footage, punch it into a video player an...

Re: [TUTO] Save or répair Deathsmiles 2 Arcade PC-PCB

Thanks for sharing that info! Might be worth adding it to the wiki for future reference, if it isn't already there. I wonder if it's possible to reproduce the sideport memory and add it to boards where it is missing... but guessing it's far more complicated than that. Is it surface mount, or some ki...

Re: exA-Arcadia

No email on my end. It's a shame, MAGFest just ended yesterday and I really wanted to have A&B there for people to play. I doubt there will be as much hype for it next year. Spilled milk and all, but it may be worth trying to reach out directly in the future. Possible that Shou/EXA would've fast-tr...

Re: exA-Arcadia

You can do chargebacks for several reasons if you were the buyer. Item not as described, item not received, etc. I've done them many times (with Visa/Mastercard), and always got my money back. Maybe your credit card company is different, though. Different cards have different chargeback policies. I...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Even some overly broad timeline would be better than radio silence. I get that EXA/Shou are running this operation as lean as possible, but even having one person around (or delegated to a couple of people for a few hours a day) to answer inquiries from paid customers wouldn't hurt. Even a quick twe...

Re: exA-Arcadia

One can assume it'll loop back to the game select, just like the Sega & Taito cabs.

I remember when BlazBlue CS2 needed an update, you had to mail the drive back to Taito in Japan. :lol:

Re: Kawasaki Warehouse

Japan sure is fast about demolishing unused buildings in urban areas. I got a chance to go a few weeks before closing... really awesome place, and appreciated the deluxe Sega cabs (Outrun & Space Harrier!). The candies on the main floor were... not well maintained, lol. The retro cabs upstairs defin...

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

Deposits were to allow bidding up to a specific amount in JPY. The deposits worked as a multiplier, so for every 1 JPY deposited, you got N increase in bidding power. I forget the exact amounts.

Cheers, lads. Guess I'll give From Japan a go.

Got a response back from SMJ - they are indeed shutting down. They're refunding my deposit at the end of the week. :(

Seeing that message on my end as well. Will be very unfortunate if they are indeed closing up shop, as they were, by far, the best proxy service I have ever used. Great pricing on fees as well. Sent them an email asking for more details, and I'll share here if/when I hear back. I have a rather large...
