Thanks

Thanks guys. I see some familiar faces here.

I am pretty stoked to have found a cab in MA. I am still waiting to hear back from the seller. From what I can tell it needs a new illumination panel and it has an Egret III two player CP instead of an Egret II. Hopefully it will all work out and I will be playing away this week.

Hi guys. Im new!

I finally bit on registering for your site when I bought my new candy cabinet project.

I currently have one candy cabinet, a Neo 25 pictured here:

Recently I found out about this diamond in the rough and will be picking it up on monday:

Anyway Im hoping to recondition it with a buttons and joystick control panel, put a new monitor in it and turn it vertical for shmups and classics. I know next to nothing about this cabinet in particular but am excited to add it to my 20+ cabinets I currently own! If anyone can point me to some great threads on here dealing with the Blast City Id be greatly appreciated. Here is what Im specifically looking for:

Information on restoration/wiring/that kind of stuff
Places to purchase a marquee, place of marquee scans to make my own, etc
any other recommendations you can make to me.

Thanks guys and I look forward to being around on this site!

Hey all!

I'm Stian, from Norway and I'm a MAME and emulation-freak. Built three MAME cabinets (with arcade crts of course ;)) and I've started thinking about stepping away from emulation and getting a candy cab w. Jamma, mostly because I'm a huge fan of vertical shmups.

Looking forward to joining the community. :)

Hi,

I've recently decided to purchase my first arcade machine and have been recommended this forum by a great guy over on rllmukforum. I was originally looking for anything but have been persuaded into getting a candy cab after seeing how awesome they look.

I'm based in the midlands in the UK.

Paul.
