Hello everyone,

I'm Bobby, and I've come here from the arcade-projects forum. I'm into mainly rail-shooters and currently working on a JVS Emulator for my Naomi and Lindbergh.

Looking forward to meeting everyone, and learning lots of new things!

I have been on Klov for quite a while in suggesting some "modern classic" arcade stuff and then found out on this site which contains a lot of that. Looking forward to this. Currently own a twin Time Crisis 2. Everything but the monitors are in fine condition now.

Hi guys!

I'm Yellow13 from Russia and I have recently had fun with a couple emulated arcade games a friend sent me. I wanted to discover more arcade games that are available on PC, did a Google search, and here I am!
My favourite game types are shooters (especially those with "guns" you aim at the screen ; a shame this can't be done on PC!), although I like playing a racing game from time to time.
Apart from arcade games, I like real time strategy and other realistic simulators, like submarine games.

And that's all for now, I hope I'll discover lots of awesome stuff here!

Hello everyone! I have been an avid gamer for most of my life and after a decade of watching on sidelines finally taking the plunge down the rabbit hole for a candy cab arcade project! I am on the east coast in the DC suburbs, mid 40's family guy, tech, scifi, gaming nerd :) Looking forward to getting into the hobby! Thanks! 8-)

Hello all,

I'm Wes of the Graveyard Duck podcast. Been an arcade collector for the past 10 years or so. I have an Aero City on the way from a friend of mine, and in looking up info on it, I discovered this place. Excited to contribute to the discussion.

Hi, I've been into video games almost my whole life (born in 86) and a competitive fighting game player for almost 13 years (Main series is SF and KOF, but I play almost everything in this genre). I ordered a candy cab in October because I thought it would be cool to finally have the arcade perfect versions of some of my favorite games. Having issues with the monitor atm, but hopefully I can work through those. Anyway, I joined to learn more about and enhance my enjoyment of the hobby.

Wigz here. Like alot of people i started out as a lurker. Havent managed to snag a candy cab yet. Ive been looking for about 9 years but its pretty dry out here in Florida with the exception of the occasional seller on village bbs. I primarily play shmups and fighting games. Current favs are Blazing Star and SFA 2 that i play on a SF II repro bartop i built. Ill start the hunt for a Blast City again in a couple of months, so if you live in Fl or GA and see one let me know ;)

Hey guys

I'm a random guy living in Spain, been messing around with consoles for a few years but recently felt the temptation to get into some arcade stuff so I got myself a couple PCBs and a supergun, and now I'm living the life :)
I'm a programmer by trade, have done some game development in the past but nothing noteworthy.

I don't know if I can own a full cab so looking for an xm-29 and/or maybe an arcade monitor (toshiba perfect flat from NNC).
We'll see how that goes :)

Cheers!

Long time lurker, finally registered.

Trying to get my hands on my first cab, a Vewlix F. Already have a CPS2 Darksoft Multi and a CPS3 Darksoft Multi. I'm not a collector, but a player. So I love myself some patina'd beat up stuff that still works really well. No museum here.

Hope to learn a lot more by joining and hopefully buying/selling/trading in the marketplace.

Hello all!

New user from California USA. I have been playing with MAME and my trusty X-Arcade stick for the last 10 years or so.

This year I took the plunge into some legit arcade hardware after wanting a cabinet of my own since being a kid.

This year I picked up a Neo Geo Big Red and most recently picked up a Sega Blast City.

I am looking forward to learning a lot and getting help with the things I can't sort out on my own.
