Good day all,

I hope this finds you well. I'm an old school gamer with some newer stuff, but not much. And I'm also a bit of a luddite technologically speaking. Anyway, I ordered this off the internet, like a doofus. And I'm wondering if it's just the hundred dollar piece of plastic and circuitry I think it is that I'll never get to work. I plug it in to the USB ports of my computers, a laptop and a desktop, and the computer recognizes a device has been plugged in, but nothing else happens. Anyway to get it working or should I accept I've been scammed?

I'm not sure if the forum will allow me to post a photo.

I'm GreDe85 from Oulu, Finland, just bought myself Sega Blast City arcade-cabinet last week. I mainly collect console games, but my friend was selling his Blast City before moved from his old apartment from Vantaa. It was quite fun pickup to drive bit over 1200km(746 miles) in less than 30 hours. :D

Looking forward to getting some parts for the Blast at marketplace forum :)

I'm from Sweden, and got pointed to this forum by a friend.
I'm quite new to the arcade scene, and mostly try to play games on real hardware but with multicarts for convenience and wallet safety :D
Got two New Net Citys today, that I am fixing up slowly but surely :)

My names Dan. I'm a total noob, and I'm not from Europe (surprise!) I signed up to receive a little help with a supergun issue I'm having. Hopefully, I can post about it soon enough after I get approved as a full member. Nice to meet you all, btw.

My name is Pär and I'm from Sweden.

I find joy in almost all kinds of games. I mostly play retro games but I also like the bleeding edge. I'm into game preservation and hardware restoration.

I have a New Astro City with a MiSTer inside. I mostly play MVS on it but more recently me and my girlfriend have been duking it out with Dr Mario. It's our FIGHT TO THE DEATH game but we usually play it on Famicom so now that we play on the arcade instead I've become more engaged with making sure the machine is happy.

That's when I found this place.

Up up down down left right left right b a. Hi I'm Dan. I completed Double Dragon at Thornton Heath swimming baths aged 8. I walked 5 miles home from Streatham Ice Rink aged 9 because I spent my bus fare on another game of Rampage. I was always late for school because I missed the bus as I was in the local cafe playing WWF. In college I was too busy playing Mortal Kombat to get to lessons, and in University I spent a lot of my student loan on Point Blank. I sold my first GameBoy when I was 11, and have been involved in videogames in one form or another for most of my life. I'm craving a Candy cab to while away my days and revisit old friends. Hello!

Hi, I'm Alex, and am completely new to arcade stuff. I get the feeling I'm on the younger side here being 20 years old, but I saw MVG's review on candy cabs and thought having one would be a really cool display piece, so after some google searches I ended up here. Looking foward to talking with you all on the forums!
