What's up guys? I'm 6vibe and I currently have 3 cabinets (Neo Geo 4 slot, a wood conversion, and an Atomiswave SD). I only started in this arcade hobby last year (2019). This year I started buying more arcade boards and I have a few that need to be repaired so I'm glad to be here!

Wassup everyone, coming out of Northern California, U.S.. My name is Marv, and I’ve been into home arcade gaming for about 20 years now. I started out messing with U.S. cabs and Mame a long time ago. I finally had the time and resources to get into Japanese Candy Cab gaming. I’m slowly trying to complete my home arcade and eventually start a local arcade gaming group. I currently have an MK midway Cab, U.S. Neo Geo 2 Slot MVS, 5 Arcade1ups, 2 pachinkos, 1 Pachislo, Namco Noir clone, Vewlix clone(Chewlix), Sega Lindbergh, and a Sega Blast City. Not to mention all the other home console stuff I got. All this and no space, lols! Feel free to ask me any questions if you need assistance on any of the stuff listed above. I’m not a pro but I’m always happy to try to help!

Hi Everyone,

I'm extremely new in owning my own Arcade Cab. After getting the green light from the wife to bring in a twin linked cab I found a local machine that brought some fond memories (Initial d Stage 3). It was only after I had picked it up did I realize that I was over my head.

Master cab was running but in pieces to test functionality, however the 2nd cab was off and in pieces. After taking it home and hooking everything up a few friends of mine starting noticing minor issues

-steering wheel was off
-shifter would occasionally double shift up
-Machines did not come with crt monitors.
-Card machine function inop.

Since owning this for 3-4 months we've been able to relocate it to the basement but are still having issues getting it fixed. I look forward to speaking to you guys in helping me figure this all out.

Regards,
Genma

Hi! Bart from zee Netherlands here.
Bought an MVS board a year or so ago, bought some games while someone was so helpful to fix the board. Well, still haven't played one game unfortunately haha
Looking a bit further now, let's check this forum.
Good night all.

Hi, Phil is the name. I'm from (East)Berlin, Germany.
Therefore the very first Arcades I've played were "Sea battle" from the USSR republics (a strange electromechanical machine) and "Hase & Wolf" on the POLYPLAY, produced in the former GDR in 1987. :awe:
To be honest I am here to expand my PCB collection (mostly Shmups).
