An "oldtimer" from Finland. Started with some cheap boards and shelf made "supergun" about 20 years ago. I'm capable of doing some fixing, recapping etc. as well. Making the STV-multicart LCD selectors at the moment (sales on A-P forum).

Nowadays I have couple of dozen PCB's, several cabs and way too many home computers and consoles.

Hi all

I ended up here in my 2 year quest to build a raspberry pi (blasphemy!) emulator system built into an astro city control panel. I have an operating system now looking to buy or build a surround or enclosure for the panel and sticks.

I'm really into Sega stuff as well as SNK Neo Geo. I have fond memories of playing Metal Slug in the pub as a kid in the early 90s.

Cheers.

Hey everybody.
I'm a fighting game enthusiast, interested in buying a Astro City or Blast City cabinet.

It's a pleasure to meet you all.

Greetings.

What an excellent community you all have here. I've been reading posts for the past year but now that I'm the proud new owner of a Sega Blast City I thought I'd exit lurking mode.

I'm mainly into shmups but enjoy all different genres of arcade games. I've been a regular on the shmups forum since the early 2000s. I went to Japan in 2001 and had my mind blown by all the awesome arcade games I never knew existed. My personal opinion is that the period from '96 to 2001 was the platinum age of arcade shooters that will never be surpassed (my top 5 shmups: Battle Garegga, Dodonpachi Dai Ou Jou, Ketsui, Fire Shark, Strikers 1945 II)

I've been buying the odd PCB board here and there since the mid 2000s for play on my Sigma AV 700 Supergun, matching joysticks (I love me some Seimitsu parts), and Sony PVM 2530. I thought that would be all I'd ever need (I live in a small place) but the Candy Cab bug bit and well now I have a Blast City. It's been great so far (I demolished my previous high score on Progear) but the monitor (Nanao MS-2931) started not wanting to switch over to 15 khz from 31 khz (need to try jumping the h and vsyncs).

I'm staying optimistic and in the mean time having a blast playing with my Dreamcast hooked up to the cab. I actually enjoyed taking apart and cleaning everything. I know almost nothing but so far it's been fun learning more about general electronics and wring. I'm keen to learn more. Whenever I get overwhelmed I just think about how much I've learned in the last 3 months (thanks in no small part to this site) and it motivates me to keep at at.

Looking forward to mixing it up with y'all.

よろしくお願いします。

Hi,

I'm mainly here looking for help with fully restoring my shuttle invader arcade (only arcade I have ever owned, though I have had it since I was about 10).

Cheers,
Uli

Hi,

I am back. Can anyone remove me from Idle users pls?

Although I was idle here , so I could sort out my life-challenges, I did not abandon my arcade collection and continued with it at a slower pace in the meantime :D

Hey everyone,

I always wanted a candy cab but live in Canada where there is not a lot of Japanese arcade cabinets here, if at all. I had been looking online for a while and one popped up; it was a NAOMI Universal cabinet. I bought it and it is in really good condition. Unfortunately, it has only two buttons due to it being a Virtua Tennis machine. There is some yellowing due to smoke and I plan on having this part re-painted in the near future.

I am here to get help on wiring as I currently cannot wrap my head around this part. I want it to eventually have 6 buttons, play Marvel vs Capcom 2 and add artwork for the game.

I have been a gamer pretty much my whole life. Around 2009 I started collecting Dreamcast games so it's a bit surprising I was able to find an arcade cabinet similar to the Dreamcast.

If anyone can direct me to the correct place to find more information, that would be helpful.

Ryan

Hey all! I’m not yet a candy cab owner, but I’m soon about to acquire a New Net City from a local source near me in Minneapolis, MN.

I love CRTs and scan lines. I’ve recently picked up a nice PVM for retro gaming, but I want to get a nice 29" tri-sync arcade monitor to complement this.

Hoping to recreate some old arcade memories with my two young boys.
