Hey all,

Just wanted to say Hi and Thanks for allowing me to be part of the forum.

I grew up around arcades and still play all types of games in one way or another. I also love to do projects and repair.
Right now I'm playing mostly Neo/CPS stuff with some shooters peppered in.


Anyways,
Thanks again for having me.

Hello

I'm Pierre, 34 years old, fervent Megadriver who doesn't deny other gaming platforms from Sega, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Bandai, Commodore, Nec or Atari. I try to be as eclectic as possible, especially discovering obscure games, which cause sometimes disappointments, but also many amazements.

Concerning the Arcade, I'm a pure newbie, but who knows ? I'm fascinated by Cocktail Tables, and someday, I could seriously own one. ;)

Hello everyone,

I moved from Paris to London, with a few cabs (egret 2, capcom cute, custom vewlix, bartops, midway cocktails) and pcb's (old school and some cave).

I have the same username on the french forums (gamoover, neogeofans, neoarcadia, ukvc).

Nice to be here.

Hey Guys,

My name is Pieter and I live in The Netherlands. I started the arcade hobby somewhere in 2012 by accident. I always loved arcade machines but forgot about them until I found Nozomi.nl looking for airhockey locations to play. It ignited my arcade love and as of then been busy with it and loving it.

The line-up I have is a New Astro City, Naomi Universel Mame sitdown for Shmups, MVS Woody and just recently bought a new project sitdown racer to switch it into a Outrun 2 (SP?).

Furthermore early this year I have started to put arcade location on a map globally to get everyone of their couches and start enjoying games as it was intended, with family and friend and experience games, not just play them. So far I managed with input of the arcade community to map 165 locations and counting so if you have any additions please let me know. You can find all the locations here: http://www.arcadeuniverse.net .

Hope to be able to contribute to the forum and to find some nice deals as well :awe:

Regards,

Pieter

Hey everyone!

I'm a long time (30+ yrs) video game collector, and just now getting into arcades. In an effort to make my dream basement, I've decided I'm going to create at least 1 of each type of cabinet DIY. The software and pc part I have down, but admittedly I'm a super n00b when it comes to making cabinets.

My first attempt is a rather tall order, but I think I can do it... hopefully. That is, I want to re-create a Lost World: Jurassic Park Deluxe (theater style) cabinet.

Again, I have the game itself running darn good using the Supermodel3 emulator, and my gun is a Wii Motionplus that connects via bluetooth (using glovepie). It's SUUUPER fun.

The reason I joined this forum is to reach out and see if I can get help (or can be pointed in the right direction) in regards to cabinet plans. Aside from going into Dave and Busters daily and sneaking in a measuring tape to get dimensions and pictures, I'm not sure what to do. The general internet is no help, aside from a few pictures here and there, but from what I've found, plans are nowhere. :(

If anyone would like to be my compass, I'd love it. If not, thanks for letting me snoop around these forums! Cheers :D
