If they made a Beat 'Em Up with the quality of SKYCURSER, I'd be the happiest man alive.
There was one in development, but like MrJBRPG said, it seems to have been canceled:

Re: Sega Model 3 video issues

The case is pretty snug, so I put some standard 20mm deep fans on the outside.

Re: No sound double dragon

Yeah, Blast PSU doesn't output -5V.

Astro City, Capcom Impress and Aero Table should all have -5V.

Where do you see that username? The original listing has long since been deleted. I'm going off what I remember seeing when it was still up.

Re: What's that thing?

With AC it doesn't matter where you connect live and where neutral, just that they're on different pins ;)

The pins should be labeled on the tube.

p.s. I also heard about putting some led strips in the neon tube, does the wiring would stay the same?

It's a bit of a misleading title. The listing is for an unused RMBK-1000 graphite block from a different plant (probably Leningrad as the lister's username looks Finnish).
How is Zone_zero a Finnish username? :eh:

Re: What's that thing?

Yeah, you just need to connect two pins, one to live and the other to neutral. You don't need to connect all four.

Re: 2 Astro cabs, 1 pcb - how to make it work?

- Speaker +/- is the same wired directly to the matching pins (my cabs are just mono audio) When it's all set up, you will want to measure the resistance across Speaker +/- pins on the edge connector with a multimeter. I connected two Astros like this and blew the amp on an CPS3 board. Oops. https:...

Re: Jamma

https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/PCB_Power_Consumption As you can see the power draw for +12V is negligible on older jamma games. So yes, you could just use one wire for both +12V inputs on the jamma connector. However, if your edge connector is one that has crimp on pins, how were you going to split ...

Re: What's that thing?

You just need to connect the LED tube to AC. Just make sure your tube can run on 100VAC. I bought a 240V one and it flickered when connected to 100V. Returned it and got one that was rated for 90-260V. Works great.

There's a thread here:

A capacitor maybe?

I don't think it matters if you burned the protective foil a small bit.

Re: Neo Geo MVS 2 Slot into Blast City?

Multislots output stereo from the edge connector. You can possibly blow the amp on the motherboard if you connect it as is.

The fourth button isn't an issue on a Blast. It's wired to the 1P and 2P connectors under the CP.

Re: External speakers configuration

Yours just has resistors. Tim's schematic has a cap, because "The capacitor (in this case a non-polarised electrolytic or "NP") blocks the DC voltage and only allows the AC signal through thus protecting the amp no matter how it is wired on the game board." (quoted from here ). audio_attenuator_sche...
