Re: Games to play with your spouse?

Usually cute themed games like puzzles, shooting or even fighting games works great.

Other genre that are sometimes forgotten is gun games and rail shooters.

Re: Help needed. Nanao ms9 29 stretched image.

Hello people, I would like to thank everyone for your interest and suggestions. It took me some time, but I think I finally got this monitor working fine again.

Another happy customer here! Since I live in Argentina and it's been difficult to import products lately, I made contact with Ckong and asked him for the chance to make the marquees and get them delivered in a quite short time window I had during a training course I was attending in Germany. He has ...

Help needed. Nanao ms9 29 stretched image.

Hello everyone, recently I have been experiencing some issues with my astro city monitor. Picture looks good, sharp and colorful but suddenly the image gets thin and gets back to normal if I hit it slightly or shake the cabinet. I removed the monitor and check for cold soldering, repaired a few cold...

Re: I have to pick, Astro or Blast City?

It depends where you are in the world, but parts for an Astro are generally easier to find. The Astro shipped with an Nanao MS8 or MS9 (15/24k). The Tubes and chassis tend to be easier to source as they are used in lots of cabs. But as with anything in this hobby, easier isn’t necessarily easy. It ...

The Weche ok baby looks similar but it is not the same. The Ok Baby is made out of the Tecmo Kyotaro Excellent. Not the pony.

I don't know how to explain well enough in english, but there are many led "fluorescent lamps" replacement that fits both the original fluorescent fixture or can be directly connected to 110/220v.

You should still be able to buy them from there. Mail order only I think. And you have to use bank transfer.

You mean through taitotech webpage?
