Hello everybody, name's Longobongo from Toronto, Canada.

Just purchased a Naomi Universal Cabinet here and was hoping to restore it as a summer project. My unit looks to work fine but is really dirty. Looking forward to taking it apart and giving it a good clean. :awe:

Hi, My name is Jan from Aarhus in Denmark.

I originally got into retro gaming buing a SNES and Nes and went on from there. It all started when i picked up a PCB (Cadash) from a local danish forum. It where in a "not working" condition, but with help I got it working. When reading around this site comes up alot, so here i am :-)

Also hoping to pick up a few new games from the marketplace, if I can get access :-)

Hey Longobongo, that's pretty much my situation right now. Just purchased a universal in pretty ok state, but very dirty and with some rust here and there. What i am really having trouble with is finding a company wich can do a professional paintjob on it. The other concern is the chassis and tube wich in the universal version, is kinda mehh.. But ill be pretty happy if it all works and if i can get it back together in one piece.

Atm, i am also considering either spending some money on a trip to japan or, buying a candy from the french guys (.am) and be done with it.
Those restored bright white Astro's look sooooooo pretty!

Hi all,

First post in the forums :)

I'm from the San Francisco bay area in California. Just bought my first few games - SSF2:T, MvC, Darkstalkers, Xmen, & Xmen vs. SF

The hobby has been a childhood dream some 20 years ago when I was jamming on those exact games in jr. high and up, and finally got the OK from wife to pursue some level of a consolized arcade at home. The curiosity ultimately led me here to dig into interesting techniques everyone has tried, and maybe build the collection some more :)

Next target - totally looking for SF2: anniversary edition haha. That's some kinda holy grail I have 0 luck finding an original of, sadly.

Hello !
Recently fallen in the arcade trap after a few euros spent in a quite cool arcade room in Paris, I bought a vewlix and now try to convince my wife that a second one (15khz) would make us happier than a fourth child :awe:

Hey. My name is Jim and I wanted to register here and start a topic about Taiko No Tatsujin. I'm going to be receiving my arcade unit version 14 and wanted to connect with other people who own the game and ask some questions / get advice. Also, I have the kits for 7,8,9 and 10, but I'm looking for 11,12 and 13.

Hey there, its Mark (beh3moth) - some of you might know me from the neo-geo.com and the 'old' killercabs forums, if you do then hi - long time no see :D
And if you don't know me already, I'm very pleased to meet you! :)

I've been a long-time collector of arcade cabinets and games, was out of the scene for a while, but recently got back into it and I'm now collecting again. :)

Yep I'm a little bit into fighters. I have a wide range of platformers, puzzlers and sports games also that I setup. I also have a few Sony 29" PVM's and BVM's setup for retro console gaming through crisp vibrant RGB. Gotta have a wide range of variety for my guest to play if not things can get boring and typical real quick.
