Anyone seen a cab like this?

Post by nem » November 17th, 2019, 3:26 pm

Bored at work and I was wondering what ol' JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.) was upto these days. So I found out he still somewhat regularly posts videos on Youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/user/JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.)/videos

Anyway, I picked this one video, because it had an interesting title screen:



(it should auto-skip to 2:43)

What the heck are these things? Bat tops, control panels that tilt, upright cabs. The design cues remind me of Jaleco. Anyone seen anything like it?

this is how we chill on methamphetamine

cabs are nice enough though they're a weird mix of a pony 3 and candy19 but it comes off like a pong cab with the simplicity

I still refuse to believe that JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.) is or ever was a real person.

The best JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.) insult I've ever seen is him mentioning for some reason he'd got an MBE on twitter

Hes definitely real. Especially after all that drama with him taking people photos and watermarking them.

Didn't he have a forum at one point where he basically spoke to himself, lauding himself over himself for getting a CPS changer?

I’d never heard of it but yeah, in his video description:

“Tokyo Disney Resort's StarCade game centre, long gone. September 2003.”

I like them. Custom made for the place and then destroyed?

Huh, there's a name I haven't heard for a long time. JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.) invaded a forum set up by some friends over 15 years ago, out of the blue. It was more than a bit weird because although it was ostensibly a video game forum, since we were all nerds, it was mainly a place for all of us who knew each other IRL to hang out online and talk ****. I think we all took the **** out of him until he left.
