G'day from Australia.
I have a newly obtained twin new astro city setup playing Tekken DR on a system 256 which brings me here. I also have a mame cab and a few Australian wood cabinets in the garage.

Greetings,

I'm Jimmy Takacs. I'm new to the arcade game, but a long time retro game collector. I recently purchased a Sega Net City cab, and I'm well on my way to getting it up and running. My favorite consoles are NES, SNES, and N64, though recently I've been diving into PC Engine and import Dreamcast a ton. I look forward to getting some feedback and maybe some necessary parts to complete my Net City!

I don't currently have any because it's taking up a lot of different places currently. I'll try taking a picture of the noteworthy stuff in a couple weeks. I need to thin out the collection as well. I have 10 broken gamecubes I need to put lasers in :( and finding parts at a good price is always the worst

Hiya! :D

I'm Matt, an American dude based in Tokyo, and on the precipice of getting my very first arcade cabinet (a Sega New Net City that will be running a NAOMI for Azumanga Puzzle Bobble), I decided to join what seems to be a very awesome community here! I've been collecting retro games since I was 7 (I'm 31 now), and while my collection currently hovers at around 1000 games, the world of arcade cabinets and PCBs and all that fun stuff is completely new to me, so I'm hoping to learn a lot! Having an arcade machine of my own has been a pipe dream of mine since I was little, and the first time I played Azumanga Puzzle Bobble (It's my favorite anime of all time), I told myself that would be the machine that I would have in my house one day. Feels good knowing that it'll be in my house soon!

Also, if anyone has any particularly good shops in Japan they like, let me know! Always looking to find others, especially ones that sell chirashi (flyers). I...kinda collect those too >.>

Hi, I'm Ed from the North East UK, I've got a Neo Geo MVS prototype cab a few months back and earlier this week I just got my second cab, an Astro City. I hope to get a few more candy cabs soon, and I would like to learn from other people and hopefully I can help others out also :).

Hi! I'm César, I'm french and I live in Oslo, Norway. I have 2 arcade cabinets, one NAC and one mini MVS. I also have about 20 consoles and many many games. I try to spend the little time I have raising my 2 children, working on my machines, and playing (real) tennis. I'm here mostly to make contacts, and give/take advices :)

Hello All,

I've ghosted on the arcadeotaku site since I got started with arcade gear (just about a year now) and I have found the wikis very helpful. I'm in Toronto, I have a 8 month old little one (who take up my time), and I am hoping one day to get my gameroom designed. I currently have Blast City with a busted screen :/

I play STGs, beat'em ups, and fighting games mostly.

I currently just own Euro Football Champ that I got when i bought the cab but i have some MVS's and MV1-A that I'm going to order soon.

Hello everybody. My name's Mike Wennmacher and I'm currently living in Champaign, IL USA. I bought a Sega Versus City cabinet about 4 or so years ago from a fighting game buddy. After taking it apart, cleaning it, cutting the base in half (for easier moving in the future), making some clamps to hold the base together again, and letting it sit dormant in pieces for 4 years, I've finally put the monster back together again. I figured it's time to start joining some arcade cabinet forums. Although taking the Versus City apart and putting it back together has lead me to learn a bit of the basics, I'm still pretty noobtastic (I know enough to be dangerous as they say :awe: )
