I am originally from India missed school to pop into the arcades, built up a decent collection there of both original and bootleg mainly CPS1 in 2013. Lived in Oz for a long time and got into collecting using eBay. I am nearing end of my collecting and I tell myself Ibara Kuro and R-Type Leo would be final two board. I cannot afford DDPSDOJ. Basically I had given up collecting earlier and had regretted it. Now I have decided to just enjoy what I have and stop collecting (hopefully).

I generally use arpicade to play games even if I own them, mainly to reduce wear and tear but then I feel the emulation isnt right for a few games.

The games I generally play -
1. Galaga
2. Sega Monaco GP Remake by Geecab using a proper spinner (TurboTwist)
3. Contra (NES)
4. Street Fighter 2 all variants (though its dull playing against the computer. I miss competing against others in an arcade).

I used to spend a lot of time in #roms-isos (EFNET) back in early 2000s - anyone here from the channel?

Hey, I'm Bobby, a student from the South UK. I've recently bought my first pieces of hardware a Naomi and a Konami Viper (broken).

Currently looking to attempt to run Namco System 246/256 games on the PCSX2 emulator by modifying it, and have come here for some help!

Look forward to chatting to everyone soon!

Hello. Just wanted to say hi an introduce myself. I’ve been a gamer since I was young and grew up with the Nes, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast. In Vermont. We don’t have many arcades here and I’ve always wanted a cab, so last year I committed to building one from scratch. I hope to post some pics here sometime of my progress. Cheers

Hi, I'm Archina! You can blame the Tetris the Grand Master community for getting me into arcade hardware. I've always been a tinkerer for electronics and not gonna lie, all this arcade tech is right down my alley. I've been collecting and working on my setup since 2015 and I'm now at the point where I've got a BVM, BNC switcher, built my own "super supergun", ect. It's gotten pretty nuts over here. For arcade hardware, my current lot is:

Mr. Driller 2 (Export Ver.)
Mushihime-Sama Futari Ver. 1.5
Puzzle Bobble
Puzzle De Pon
Shiritsu Justice Gakuen / Rival School x2
Star Sweep
Street Fighter EX2 x2
Tech Romancer x2
Tetris (SEGA System 16B)
Tetris The Grand Master x7 (had 15 at one point, yet I've sold most of them on to other players.)
Tetris The Absolute: The Grand Master 2 PLUS
Tetris The Grand Master 3: Terror Instinct
SEGA Naomi x2
CAPCOM Naomi JVS converter

Right now I'm on the lookout for a good ROM programmer. I'm planning on flashing the BIOS for one of my Naomis (As well as a Dreamcast and Mega CD yet those aren't arcade), Helping another TGM member out with TGM2+ ROM mods and finally hoping to find something that can do a good dump of the ever elusive Sony ZN-2 78081G503 chip. All I can find is a bunch of cheap programmers on Amazon and some Willem ones (which I hear aren't the best of things.) So any help there is appreciated.

Anyway, how's everyone else's projects been going? :P
