I wonder if NESiCA can be installed in any high res cabinet? Anyone seen a Blast City running it? I imagine CRIMZON CLOVER would look amazeballs in 4:3 TATE in a Blast. :(

I took a video of this "awesomeness" and if someone wants to see it I can upload it ;)
It could, however, mean more and cheaper low-res cabs if they all are replaced with HDs...

It can, but I am unsure about the frequency; you might need 31Khz.

This seemed an interesting read, an English guide to registering a NESiCA card. Just if anyone's off to Japan and wants to have some fun using NESiCA

There's also some posts with pretty detailed guides to Arcades in Japan - Cool stuff!

Man, that Nesica card registration is too much hassle. Why do you have to register?!
