Re: Xeno Crisis - Bitmap Bureau (MVS)

A scaling effect would be awesome but is it really necessary? I mean...you see the entire room on one screen. Maybe only add it when transitioning from a cleared room into a new one? You are probably right in terms of the level design. ..but any excuse for some crazy zoom action, Super Dodge Ball i...

Re: Xeno Crisis - Bitmap Bureau (MVS)

I went for the MVS standard kit. 8-)

If they could add a slight zoom/shrink of the play field as you run around that would be next level coolness.

Re: exA-Arcadia

I've played a few hours of VRITRA and enjoyed the game, spooky ambience with a nice simple game mechanic that is not over fussy but rewarding.
Looking forward to see what the HEXA version of exA will include!

Re: Kraut Buster

Looks like a good game, a big achievement overall given the complexity of the Neo Geo.
(edited - I will wait to play it in person before making any comments)

Re: exA-Arcadia

It's quite impressive really the progress of the hardware. Hardware specifications listed seems quite powerful enough for the suggested price. Although it may not be representative of final product, on twitch I noticed the system was able to boot into the game menu quickly from a restart. I did not ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

At the end of the twitch stream they briefly showed cassette / cartridge that were quite long and look easy to plug in. My impression is that the h/w unit appears to be smaller and lighter than a Taito TX2, if so that that will help with shipping. Aka & Blue now looks very polished and it was also g...

Re: Traditional Console Death! Long Live Streaming?

OnLive was ahead of it's time as a streaming box (720p), the latency was not too bad on first person games but noticeable on fast input games. Although I was located within 100 miles of a server. Apparently they had almost a 'whole PC's' worth of processing for each user online, so the system could ...

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

Tekken 7 has slapped SFV around the face with it's massive sales.

Especially as it was in the arcades for a couple of years for being released on console.

Who would have thought that could possibly work :awe:

Re: Capcom Belt Action Collection (PS4)???

I pre-ordered the 'limited' box as the book tempted me. I'm sure it will just be a printed version of the digital in game art library?

I'm a sucker for Capcom stuff and have owned the CPS power changer system in the past.

Have you been in contact with Bikkuri Software, I think Graze Counter EX would be perfect for the system? Also triangle service always seem to make interesting games, that Pengo multiplayer was insane fun. :awe: An 'in house' development team is one thing that other companies have used to get new sy...

Re: Naomi Replacement Fan Mount

You could use an ATX to JVS adapter to replace the SUN PSU. I did this on a Sega Chihiro with a ACE black silent PSU.
No ideas on the keeping the fan in place, perhaps some form of bonding paste?

Re: Naomi Replacement Fan Mount

Yes, I definitely want to go for less noisy replacements as you say not the stock parts listed on the wiki.

Is the part you used almost silent? how does the noise compare to a stock dreamcast. (by way of a comparison if you have one)

A photo would be cool so we can see what's going on

Re: Naomi Replacement Fan Mount

I have this also on my list of jobs to research/do as well.

Would not one of these fan models recommended on the wiki fit strait in?

https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Replacing_a_NAOMI_Fan

I recently did a Taito TX2 that has 4 fans and it took ages, about 6 hours including a full clean. :wtf:
