Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

They came back on my 7th email last night after I mentioned getting debt recovery involved. Basically said my account has been inactive for a year, and the money is now theirs. Said it’s in the terms. I’ve checked the terms and I can’t see anything that says that. I’ve asked for the location of thos...

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

Pretty sure I'm being ignored. I've sent 6 emails from 2 different email addresses over the last few weeks. :(

Re: Topic: Toshiba A68KJU96X (4F) tube or similar for MS9

It's worth checking. FWIW, I've had 2 Astro's, both with the Toshiba tube, one was an MS8, the other was an MS9.

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

Did anyone get their deposits back from SMJ? They’ve ignored all of my emails.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Without trying to steer to far off topic...

I had a bundle of posters opened by customs once and then just stuffed back in badly rolled once they realised it wasn't anything dodgy. It creased the **** out of the edges of it :( :problem:

Re: exA-Arcadia

All well when it's a £40 game, but £3000+ is no joke.

I assume they’re refunding all deposits as a matter of course then.

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

Bad news if SMJ are going. Hopefully I'll get my deposit back, only $90, but I don't really want to just lose it.

Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

I used to see the odd knackered or untested one for sale on Jamma+ when it was still around. Don't think I've ever seen a working one for sale though.

Re: Sega A001 locks and keys

I don't think so, I'll check in now for you.

Edit, No dice, tried 4 different A001 style Sega coin box locks and the A001 didn't budge any of them.

Re: Kawasaki Warehouse

The video says it closed last month :(

It was one of the arcades on my list for when I finally get to Japan, shame it's gone, although I think the decor might have creeped the Mrs. out a bit too much :lol:

Re: Espgaluda Scoring

What? Button 4 is already full auto. And if you hold down C+D while pressing start, you get full auto on C and barrier on button D, IIRC. If you're positioned in the top 20% of the screen, you always get more gems, can't remember if this applies to the gold as well. The most important thing though ...

Re: Espgaluda Scoring

You get points for lives left at the end of the game, so it’s not worth losing a life for a few extra gems. Those super players are a different level to most people. I watched one earlier and on stage 1 he hit nearly 4m points, if I get 1.6m it’s a good run!

Is that when they say "discount mayonnaise"?

Re: Espgaluda Scoring

Isn’t Espgaluda all about going into whatever the mode is called that slows down bullets, getting as many bullets on screen as possible then killing the enemy that shat them out at you? Tactical use of that mode is needed, so you need to know when you’ve nearly killed the enemy.

Re: Shenmue 3 kickstarter ?

Got mine today, thought they might have tried a little harder with the slipcase. Will have to give it a go tomorrow.
