Re: OpenJAMMA board

I really like the sound an OpenJAMMA board for home-brew development. Commercial JAMMA gaming boards do exist, the one linked is based around an AMD708e, JAMMA I/O but only VGA video out and probably costing more than £100. The JAMMA connector is there to meet gaming regulations in Italy, so the dev...

Re: Items spotted on Yahoo Japan Auctions

What is this cabinet?

The design looks fairly simple, is it a specific brand of control panel is used?

Re: What obscure PCB(s) are in your collection that you love

SUPER BUBBLE 2003, by Limenko a Korean company. Very funky JAMMA motherboard/cart based system with only a handful of games released. Bubble 2003 is a cross between bubble bubble and snow bros and plays really well with super cute graphics.

Re: Taito and Sega online arcade services

Does anybody have Taitotech access?, I noticed they added some lovely dedicated Nesys control panels but a login is required to view the current catalog. :problem:
Presumably one of the shops in Japan or somebody in the trade over here is able to order kit for individuals?

Atomiswave, anybody tried 2 player on LAN?

Hi, Has any member setup a number of Atomiswave boards using LAN? , I assume once you enabled the net card in the settings and another Atomiswave is discovered some additional screen appears that allows you to challenge?

Re: (Mediocre) Article on (European) Arcades in EDGE

as a subscriber of the Edge since the first edition , my own view is that it went off the rails quite a few years back - if they had looked out of their window they would have seen arcades very much alive and kicking. These days I now much prefer GamesTm and other alternatives more often than not. I...
