Re: Taito Egret 3 Blank Illumination Panel

Bump. Still got this, still looking to sell! Not looking for trades at the moment - sorry.

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.

Taito Egret 3 Blank Illumination Panel

​New Years selling time... Bought this not realizing I already had the panel with the artwork. :awe: It's yellowed due to age but fine otherwise. Not sure what these things are worth these days, so let's start with 200 shipped within the USA. I can ship overseas at additional cost. Please send PP vi...

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. :(

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

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...

Talk to alberto1225 for the CP: https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=37094 LemonyVengeance can probably make you a harness. FWIW, I am 99% sure that the Madonna and the Aero share the same harness, so you can probably mix and match, but if you want something 100% new and LEMONY fresh.....

Re: exA-Arcadia

Cyberlead? Pretty sure they are 15/24khz, with the Cyberlead II being a tri-sync. Might be wrong, it's been a while. MrJBRPG - JVS cabs and/or I/O converters are not in any way rare outside of Japan.. certainly less common than what you'd see in a modern large Japanese Game Center, but this is hard...

Don't see this everyday - NOS Naomi CF kit:

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!
