Hi guys!

New user here from Sweden. Just taking my first steps into the world of arcades, trying to plug a few deep-rooted sentimental holes with 90s fighting games that I can play with my kid once she gets old enough. Have browsed the forums for a bit, which has highlighted just how much of a noob I am. Hoping to learn from some seasoned veterans and get my Super Megalo 2 up to scratch asap.

Hi all, Chris here from Manchester. Wanted to get into arcade stuff for ages but was always put off by the cost of games etc. Finally got myself a supergun and one of those Pandora's Box devices so I can play some arcade classics.
I always wanted an Atomiswave and want to get one at some point as some of the games really interest me.

Steve here from beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Recently I was fortunate enough to become an owner of a Sega Blast City cab, and from my weeks of research this forum has provided so much info about this cab. Without this knowledge I wouldn't even know how to dissemble the giant thing in order to fit through the door of my apartment.

Now that the restoration process has started, I am on the hunt for more knowledge, as well as game PCBs. This is definitely the place to be.

Surely you will see a post in the other section regarding the blast city restoration real soon.

oh and my favourite arcade title back in the day was Robocop 2 8-)

Hi everyone,

I'm Tony from the United Kingdom, after visiting Play Expo up in Manchester last year and playing arcade games how they were meant to be played the memories came flooding back, it had been the best part of 30 years since I had played a game on a cab.

Although I've toyed with emulation for a few years, after having the memories brought back i quickly realised it's just not the same with out the cab, so I got the arcade itch and it need ps scratching.

I'm currently looking for my first cab with my interest being games from the late 70's though 80's.

Hi everyone,

Long time arcade and game enthousiast from The Netherlands.
Started out with a MSX home computer and playing whatever arcade machine I come accross and so a great hobby was born. :D
After years of playing on both old and new cabs, I'm hoping to get my very own Candy Cab and get to learn more about the hardware next to just playing games on them.

Happy to talk and nice to meet you all!
