Hi there,

I'm Darth Nuno from Belgium.
I'm a long time arcade collector. I own a private game room that run 50/60 games and few pins.
In there, it's 90% old school arcade games (80's classics), but I'm also fan of more modern stuff Japanese shmups such DariusBurst :-)
This board seems an interesting place for such modern hardware question, so I'm eventually registering here ;)

My name is Viktor and I live in the middle part of Sweden (east coast). I don't own a cab at the moment, but plan on getting one when I move to a new home within a year or so. I enjoy arcade games in general, but I'm not too much into vs. fighting games. Still have a couple of MVS and CPS2 games from when I had a cab a few years ago. Unfortunately I'm not able to play them at all for the time being. I'm looking forward to participate in this forum!

Hello everyone,

Newbie there. French arcade enthusiast of 33 yo (damn, already). I'm still remember my first contact with Street fighter 2 in 1991, on a badly wired euro cab with 3 buttons. Good old times. The cab was next to a Sunset riders. What a summer. I rapidly got a Super nintendo with Street Fighter2. I was so amazing playing it on the tv.. even in slow as **** 50hz ! I also remember when few years ago my brother was a bit **** off after me when i bought Street Fighter Alpha on our shiny Playstation : "WHY WASTE MONEY ON 2D WHEN YOU CAN HAVE 3D AT HOME" was the idea. Well, i always been a 2D guy i guess and still am. Then Dreamcast, Kawaks, saturn, xbox, xbox 360, a lot of arcade sticks and upgrades to mame full set :D

I've been stalking here for months getting infos for my first cab that i just received. You'll find it in the gallery right now :)

Hey everyone,

I currently live in France, though I started collecting arcade cabinets about two years ago in the States, and my machines currently reside with my brother over there. I started with an MVS cabinet, now I've got a Playchoice 10 and a Simpsons 4p cab with a couple other Konami boards. My next obsession is CPS1/2, which will just about cover all the games I was obsessed with as a kid.

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I love arcade games, especially shmups, platformers and brawlers from the 90's. I live near Paris, in France. I own 2 superguns, with many MVS carts and 2 PCBs. I'm also a console guy (retro games above all), though recently, I came back to the arcade games, hence my introduction today.

Glad to be here!

hello all,

I have always been into gaming of some sort, over the past year I have been getting back into older consoles, Saturn/neo/dreamcast/snes etc

I used to have a arcade cabinet but had to get rid of it for space reasons, I have recently picked up a supergun and pgm/atomiswave/cps2 and
have been playing this a lot.

I like to try and fix broken consoles etc and try any mods to consoles myself before I admit defeat and get a pro to fix it. I just recently converted an arcade
stick with the cuthulu MC board to work almost all my consoles, best move I have done in a long time.
