Hi all!,

Finally got around to register. Been lurking for years :shifty: I've been collecting video games on and off for 20 or so years. I got into arcade stuff 5-6 years ago and my consoles have not been used much since.
Glad to be here!

Hi from Atlantic Canada! I've currently got an Astro City and a supergun. Hopefully to be a bigger collection when I eventually move to a larger house!

Hey all, I've just staarted on my MVS collection and it's lead me here...

Started streaming Metal Slug on PC, until I hit a 1cc, then a no death, then a 1cc on hardest difficulty (never again!!), then a 1cc Metal Slug 2, now I'm working on X (which is WAY tougher than 2!!).

Anyway, I realised that I really wanted to beat these games authentically, so I have an MVSC being put together right now and a nice colection of MVS Metal Slug carts (plus Turf Masters and an NEOSD Pro), most of which were battered and have been given new shells, repro stickers and shock boxes.

Sadly, I still can't find a decent original copy of MS5.

Anyway, I've now started looking for a candy cab and have absolutely fallen in love with the MVS-U4. So I'm keeping a keep eye out.

Nice to meet you all :D

A swede born in early 80s. I was very tempted in the early 20s to get hold of genuine arcade stuff, especially PCBs, which were not emulated and could only be enjoyed in its original state. I have increased my collection since the start quite alot, but limited space and network kinda limit my plans, so I have been forced to compromise in in my older days.

I will start to add some PCBs for sale ASAP. I have experience to ship abroad, but it was MANY years ago. However, I do my best to show my potential buyers the functionality of the PCBs in case of hesitations

Thats all for now!

Hi everyone!

François "ISIMORN" CRINON from France. I am an arcade player since 2010, mainly about Super Turbo and Third Strike for competition, but I also enjoy those late night party around our cabs playing more fancy fighting games like Karnov's Revenge, Double Dragon... I also organize tournaments within the LaDOSE association, like X Street Battle and TheMIXUP.

I owned a lot of cabs already in my life, beginning with an New Astro, then a Versus City, then 2 more Astro and a Blast... Well, now I only have 4 Blast City but I may get back a pair of New Astro, because my girlfriend prefers it for the living room instead of those huge Blast :lol:
The LaDOSE association used to live inside the Gamespirit Gamecenter in Lyon, but now we have our own cabs, 10 Astro/New Astro City and we do our events in a highschool, still in Lyon of course.

I would be glad to access this forum to get better at CRT maintenance and also follow arcade projects from the community.

Been registered for a while. Looking to eventually get into the Buy and Sell side so I can grab some PCBs! I currently have two blast city’s and my knowledge is fairly slim.

Hey all!

My name is Alex, i come from southern Germany near Lörrach.
I have been tinkering and working with electronics, computers, cars and motorcycles for 20+ years.

As i side project i am part of a small computer museum, where i mainly work with the server stuff and fixing electronics.
The other people there have their love with home computers / game consoles / arcade stuff / japan stuff :awe: ...

The Japan / game guy recently bought a whole lot of arcade PCBs where i have been slowly working my way through.
This forum has been a GREAT help, so i thought i might just register here since i may contribute a bit and also i currently
have a wonderboy in monsterland bootleg here that is almost fixed but needs just a little idea....

See the flyer of our museum here

so henlo hoomans, be prepared to see some questions about my dreaded wbml sprite problem here soon :D

Hello everyone !

I'm Tristan from France, I've been a fan or arcade games for quite a number of years and I finally got my very own New Astro City recently.
This forum has helped me quite a bit but I still need some help to make it work perfectly and that's why I registered, it might help future owners too.

Big thanks to everyone involved in this community, you're all amazing.

Hello everyone!

Been lurking here for a good month or two now so thought it was time to join you all here :)

I've been mainly into rhythm games for a long time now and own a few cabs of that nature (DDR, Jubeat, Reflec Beat).

Looking to get more into the world of candy cabinets and the capcom cute repro preorder had taken my interest so I jumped on that. I'm excited when that will arrive and what I'll be able to do with it. Still have to figure out what I'll be doing for the monitor :lol:

Very new to this stuff so I'm always reading and finding out more as I go along.

Glad to have finally joined and to participate on the forums with you all!

Well hello there. Been around for a bit but what ultimately led me to register was the fact you all have a buy/sell section.

My father and I both enjoy arcade games but he is more on the pinball side while I enjoy the stand-ups and specifically Shmups genre.

Best wishes to all.
