I've been on here a couple of times but just decided to register. I'm on the Jamma and Shmups forums too under the same name. I don't own an arcade system (yet) but have a bunch of consoles new and old. Dream arcade to own would be a Candy cabinet with Street Fighter 3 Third Strike.

Hello! I'm Konstantin from Moscow! I own Sega Naomi Universal Cabinet, but it doesn't have coin mechanism and I need one right now, so I'm trying to find parts here. I also own several other cabs: initial D Arcade Stage Ver.3, Para Para Paradise 2nd Mix, Beatmania IIDX 13 Distorted, Pop'n Music 14 Fever and DDR SuperNOVA converted to ITG. Glad to join the community of arcade owners!

I am from the USA. Several years ago I got into serious console collecting. I own nearly every console (missing a few extreme rare cases), and was wondering where to go next. I've always loved arcades and arcade gaming, so naturally I moved into some serious MAME setups. I recently built one of those little Pi3 powered bartops, and run some MAME classics on there.

But I needed more. Real hardware has always been my true passion. So here I am, I am now just starting to get into actual arcade hardware. I purchased some Lindbergh PCs some time in the past, a Naomi main board recently, and even have a real Virtua Cop 3 cab arriving today (I love gun games), woohoo!

I come here because I barely have any understanding of what I'm doing, and don't want to blow myself up or ruin my stuff. :D

Apologies in advance for all the horrible super noob questions I will be asking :awe:

I'm looking into collecting older arcade systems and learning how to work on them (for repair / modification), mostly because of a long time interest in fighting games. I also collect / play older console games and systems.

Hey there,
I got into arcade approx. 3 years ago. I'm lucky to have 2 Japanese cabs (1 yoko, 1 tate) and I essentially play shmups. Also, I"m addicted to Dodonpachi ^^
