Hi, I'm Nik and I've got a smattering of boards (CPS1/2, Neo Geo, Sega ST-V) and a supergun from BEEP. Will likely be on here for repair/refurbishing questions/getting harnesses for stereo/kick/etc.

Hello everyone!
Thanks for adding me in this forum . I read it for months and finally I decided to register.

I would like to start collecting some Japanese arcade pcbs with art sets and instructions and mvs Japanese kits!

I hope it will be a fun journey!

Thanks!

Hi, I am an east coast US collector of Sega Net City, New Net City, and Naomi Upright variant cabinets. I consider them Candy, even if many don't! My platform of choice is the Naomi, although I dabble in Chihiro, RingEdge*, and Taito X*.

I currently have: Rhythm Tengoku, MarsTV, Outrun 2 (2), House of Dead III (2), Virtua Cop 3, Confidential Mission, Wild Riders, Crazy Taxi, NNC (1 JAMMA, and 1 JVS), NUC. I have been importing from the UK and Italy into Ohio on the east coast of USA. I currently have 15 more NUC's total en route now via Italy, 7 are for me and 7 for my best friend. We are attempting to open up an arcade eventually. Sooner than later hopefully. All of the cabinets are currently the same base style as mentioned above.

I guess after 20 or so cabs I can say I am addicted to arcade machines? 8-)

Hi,

I'm Harry from Germany.

I'm an electrical engineer and started collecting Arcade PCBs back in 1986.

By now, there are approx. 300 Arcade PCBs and 3 CABs (from german manufacturers) in my collection. Most were bought as defective and repaired by myself.

Hello, I'm Sylver, I'm French, and over 40 years old now. I'm a video game repair enthusiast and after having repaired all kind of consoles, I started repairing NeoGeo AES, then MVS ... This is how I started to get some arcade stuff :)
I now also have a CPS2 setup (I'm looking for a board B to install the Darksoft MultiCPS2) and I'm trying to get a CPS3 board now !
For now I use everything through a supergun, I hope that one day I'll get a real arcade cabinet :)

Hello! I'm from Atlanta, GA, US. Super into 3s and bought a couple of blasts specifically for that purpose. One of the monitors is broken though so that's not so great.

Thomas from UK here. Recently purchased a Blast City as my first cabinet and have been getting my hands dirty. Hopefully over the summer I will have a clean cabinet brought back to life :)

Hey everyone,

I’m currently trying to learn more about cabinets in hopes of owning one in the near future. I’m active on other forums and see a few familiar faces

Cheers
