Hello. Looking forward to being part of this community. I have been on KLOV for awhile but I recently got around to restoring my Naomi Universal Cabinet and realized that this forum has a lot of good resources. Here a couple pics of my arcade: ... 2.jpg?dl=0 ... 7.jpg?dl=0

Hello. Aval0n here. I'm in IT and have been making repro artwork for classic arcades but my love for capcom games and competing in evo got me into my own vewlix L set which I upgraded to 1080p.

Just looking to get to know others knowledge share etc.

Hello everyone. New to this forum and arcade collecting. Have only been doing it for 1yr. I am in the IT field. I am still learning and looking to contribute to the community when i can.

I currently own 5x cps2 boards one being a a Darksoft Multi, Neogeo MV1ACH and a 2 slot board, IGS PGM mobo with not games yet and a Naomi with no games yet.

Will be purchasing a Darksoft MVS multicart and really want to purchase and own at least one CAVE shmup arcade board.

Hope to make friends here and purchase some hardware.

Hi all. I’m from the UK and have been replacing my home console collection with arcade pcb’s since getting my unusual Neo geo MVS ‘Playvision’ arcade cab for my 40th birthday.

I only have room for one cab (currently in our dining room) so I have a smallcab supergun connected to my CRT TV for playing vertical shmups.
Plus a Picade form playing all those games I cant afford to buy!

I’m pretty much finished with collecting PCB’s unless I can find my holy grail - a good price ‘Nostradamus’ by Face board. I’ve bid on a couple on Yahoo japan auctions but keep losing out!

Anyway. Here’s my current collection of arcade gear:

Puzzle bobble with box
Puzzle de pon kit
Metal slug 2
Metal slug 4 kit
Last blade with art
Aero fighters 2
Last resort
Neo turf masters with box
Sengoku kit
Super sidekicks 3 kit
Waku waku 7
Blazing star kit
Garou with art
Art of fighting 2
Kabuki klash
World heroes 2
Kof 99 with art
Metal slug 3
Matrimelee kit
3 count bout
Magician lord

Hyper 64:
Samurai spirits 2 kit
Buriki one
Fatal fury wild ambition kit

Kof 2003 jamma kit
Svc chaos jamma with art
Metal slug 5 jamma
Raiden fighters
Last duel
Drift out
Thunder dragon
Sonic wings
Denjin makai 2

Radiant Silvergun
Cotton 2 with art
Steep slope sliders with art
Purikura daisakusen

The rumble fish

Hey! Swedish collector Ivan here, new to the forum. Got my first cabinet back in 2006 and through out the years had lots of different cabinets. Would love to get my hands on Night Slashers if the opportunity comes.

I've never seen a Neo Geo cabinet like this before. Is this custom? I dig that!

Name is Yams, the kinda name you would expect a baggy jeaned arcade rat to have (these days I feel like that has less of the negative connotations that it used to).

I wanted my first post to be something useful, like stuff on the Sigma Raijin. I've been working on documenting the entire thing (Wiring diagrams, schematics, parts lists, etc) as there is not a ton of information out there, and a LOT of mixed information that clashes quite a lot. Also some design changes, like better strain relieving (stock = wire tied to the coin/start/switch boards), stand offs for the coin/start board and grounding.

I know it's not often people will be opening them, but the info will be there for those who want it ^_^

All that fun stuff :) big time fan of the ArcadeOtaku Wiki, and some of this could be useful when I get that long post written out.

I'm very approachable, so whoever reads this stuff feel free to hit up

Haven't been on here in a couple of years but thought I would reintroduce myself; rocking a Sega Astro City cab with a Game King installed. Replaced the monitor recently with a flat screen (kept blowing screens). Took me years, but finally found the original card, paperwork, and inserts for the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure arcade game. Should be shipping from Japan next week. WOO!


I'll be ordering some Taito chairs soon and a plexi for the top. Really excited to be active again with you folks.

Hi everyone!

I'm from Spain, I'm 42 years old and my passion is arcade games.

I've got a very few PCB's, I stopped buying a few years ago but I'm back again. I've got my favorite game between them: an original Final Fight CPS.
I love shmups, specially Cave games. I'm not a good player with Cave games but I enjoy playing with them. I've got the three Cave PGM cartridge conversions, original PCB have a crazy prices. My favorites are Futari Black Label and Ketsui.

I'm looking for a unicorn (AKA Egret II, Egret III or Atomiswave SD). I hope to buy one this year at reasonable price.

Sorry for weird phrases or words but english is not my language. I can understand when I read it, but express myself in english is another story ^^

I expect to learn a lot in this forum, and meet good people too.
