Hi All,

32 years after I began gaming, I've finally taken the plunge on a New Net City which is being delivered shortly. I'm confident (no really)it will go through my front doors with a bit of wiggling, however I may need to remove the control panel if it gets stuck. Is there a dummies guide anywhere for removing the control panel (bonus points if it's a guide for a cab virgin). So far I've only found a guide in French which does at least have helpful pictures:

NeoArcadia Link (French)

Also, is there a link anywhere to a recommended spanner, allen key set which Net Citys/Candys in general tend to use?

Thought I would post here before clogging up the regular forum with stupid questions. Any help (and sarcasm) gratefully received!

Hey everyone. I'm new to Arcade Otaku, but I've been into arcade collecting on and off for almost twenty years. I got a super cheap Final Fight cabinet way back in the late nineties, but later got rid of it for space reasons.

Capcom and Midway games of the nineties are very dear to my heart after having spent tons of quarters playing them in my local arcade and playing their ports at home. I have one cabinet: a very nice original Mortal Kombat II, but most of my play time is on my TV with a supergun.

I happen to be trying to track down a number of the rarer Capcom games, so if you happen to have any that you're willing to part with, please let me know. I'm willing to pay a fair price.

Thanks for reading!

Steve

Hi @all. I am Olli, a 37 year old arcade enthusiast from Germany. I recently got myself a Sega Astro City and it's such a great cabinet. In addition to that I own a little arcade blog, where I post arcade related topics. Mainly tutorials :) You can find the link in my signature.
I am collecting arcade stuff since 2013. I love the games from the era 1984-1996. Like Wonderboy, Shinobi, the CPS1/2 games etc. I remember when I was on vacation with my family in Italy. I played those games in the arcades and I loved it so much.

I hope there are like-minded people here in the forum :awe:

Best regards

Olli

:D hi everybody my name is Jared and I have been into collecting old games all of my life but I've gotten really heavy into the arcades over the past several years. I own about 15 machines and probably several boards be on that. Right now I'm learning all that I can about the cps1 system. My Capcom games generally live in my Z back. You may know me from other forms and spots but I'm glad to finally be here I know I've reference this site a few times so it's good to jump in the pool :awe:
