Re: Introduce yourself here!

Post by pinbill »

Hey all,

I'm Bill and I've been enjoying arcade gaming for a number of years (after having been a console videogamer since the Atari 2600 days). I started with Neo Geo MVS systems maybe 15 years ago with, first, a Super Neo 29 Type II, and now have 4 candy cabs as well as a supergun/LCD setup. I've expanded my collection to Taito Type X2, Taito F3, CPS2, CPS3, PGM/PGM2, STV, Atomiswave and various pcbs.

I've been a longtime lurker here and I'm looking forward to finally joining the forum discussions!

Ohayou!

Name's Phil, been collecting pinball for 14 years.

Something was keeping me awake at night ... so I bought a blast city cab, and I can finally sleep :)

Looking to get a marquee for it and possibly a bullet hell pcb or two... :shifty:

it's now running an old Twin Cobra I have had for more then 10 years.... glad I kept it !

oh and I love anime too ... go figure

HI,

The name is Matt. Grew up in an arcade and looking to relive the glory days once again. Collected PCBs and such many years ago until I was forced to sell. Marriage, house, etc. Now I am in a good place where I can start to collect again. I look forward to forming many new friendships.

Anyone have change for a dollar?

Welcome guys :awe:

Mrhide, congrats on the Blast City, that was also my first candy. Spectre occasionally does marquee group buys, they are great quality. I've designed a handfull, but only made a couple print-wrothy ones. Here's an album to give you an idea: https://flic.kr/s/aHskhshzvi

Any idea which bullet hell game you'll go for? My personal favorite is Dimahoo, but many go for ESPrade for their first cave PCB (since it hasn't been ported to any consoles).

Have fun!

thanks :) ... it looks like it 's Spectre's site that brought me here ! ... so I'll check 'em out and contact him.

I'm a BIG fan of Cave / Dodonpachi ... but boy :wtf: they are pricey!@#!@#

I'm going to probably go the shameful way and stick a J-PAC in there while I search for "the proper PCB"... :roll:

Yeah it's a shame how many of the good shmups have doubled or tripled in price in the last few years, particularly Raizing and Toaplan games. A couple have hovered and remain reasonable, Galuda is still usually around $300-ish. Psikyo are still affordable too if you enjoy those.

im always looking for great places with info on arcade machines. I like to mess specifically with DDR machines but have ventured out a little bit to help others.
I occasionally help the local arcade bar keep their machines running, and i am always messing with my japanese ddr cabinet

Hey,

I'm Lee, I've been collecting retro consoles for about 15 years. I dipped my toe in with arcade machines about 3 years ago (over on jammaplus). I've bought one, restored one and now looking for one.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Big West Ham fan!

Hey everyone,

I was born in the 80s and grew up with arcades, however after my trip to Japan a while back I have been bummed about how scarce they our in my area now. Anyway I got into one of those modes and ended up building a supergun and just dove in...now im here lol.

Currently in my collection are Neo Geo MVS (few affordable cartridges), Naomi 2, Namco 256, and currently researching and trying to acquire a Lindbergh..for Initial D 4/5 :D
