Hey all,

I'm THB from Australia and currently have a small collection of arcade machines in my basement. Among them is a blast city which needs a little TLC and to be upgraded to a two player setup.

I also have a LAI Wec Le Mans standup no frills chipboard special, a weird Coffin cab with space invaders galaxian artwork.... (mame'd and TV'd) and an old cocktail cab.

I hope to become an active member of the community. :)

Hi all, Im Brett, I used to work in the arcade industry some 20 years ago, owned a few cabs back then and life got in the way, now I work in I.T. and fancy a cab to get back into this scene :)
Really looking for a New Astro City or an Egret 2.b :wtf:

Hey everyone,
Decided it was finally time to register over here at AO now that it's looking like I'll have my very first candy. (New Astro City, thanks to Windy Gaming!)

I don't have a cab yet but I do have a JAMMA supergun (shout outs to Xian Xi, the best!) and a modest little collection of boards to run on it. Still very much a noob but I'm always learning.

I'm from Belgium and recently sold off my (wooden) neo-geo cab - planning to replace it with an Astro. This forum has been an amazing resource on all things arcade.
I'm also active on the forums.

I'm Adam from Melbourne Australia. I'm a video game and console collector and have now started my journey onto Arcade gear. I have an Astro City II cabinet that is hooked up with a naomi 2 netboot set up and raspberry pi running piforce tools.

I am going to start restoring the cabinet soon so will be looking to learn and gather as much advice as I can!

Hello friends!

I'm from Portugal and I'm a retro game collector. My main interests are PC Engine and Neo Geo AES. Unfortunately I couldn't keep up with AES prices and since I live in a small apartment I couldn't pick up a cabin, so I bough a Supergun instead :awe:

My current setup is a Sigma Raijin over a Mini-XRGB to LCD.
Ever since, I started to pick Neo Geo MVS and Capcom boards :)

Hi, I'm Jason. I've recently fallen into the Neo Geo hole and have been spending way too much money building up a collection of MVS carts. I've been lurking around this forum for a bit and decided I should finally join in! I plan on getting a 4 slot board and consolizing it in the near future. Being an Electrical Engineer, it should be a fun project! :D
