Re: exA-Arcadia

Are we looking at the same game? It looks like a 30 second bonus round in some platformer. I don't care how budget priced it is, I couldn't make myself to put that game in operation. I bet almost all players would expect the game to have more to it than just jumping and grabbing stars. https://www....

Re: exA-Arcadia

Oh it's pretty hideous alright, but look at the stuff around it. People are going to walk right past a Vewlix in there. :lol: I agree that this test-for-commercial 4 player cabinet does not look perfectly neat, most likely due to the more functional, yet tacky nature of pedestal cabinets without a ...

Vritra Hexa to get a major update with 3 new weapons and game balancing If that is the case, then it would bring the total number of available weapons from 10 to 13. The home version has 8 weapons, with 2 being variants of blue, which makes 7 unique weapons. Thank you for covering other news, and I...

Re: NARITA BOY ARCADE CABINET

Keep in mind that the arcade cabinet is just a glorified 2 player controller with Narita Boy plastered all over. It is still a home console / PC game.

I saw that announcement as well.

Re: Andro Dunos II

Personally, not excited for a sequel that reduces the number of simultaneous players to one.

It's nice that the developer is utilizing STG builder to its fullest.

STG builder does not support multiplayer, which is a big disadvantage.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Am I missing something or are you? It says boldly in the announcement: online/virtual meetings. I did read virtual online presentations, and I do expect down the line EXA Arcadia would take advantage of that. However, that does not mean everything gets released publicly, especially when JAEPO is la...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Show Me Holdings seem to be the parent company. Also the timing of the announcement is quite awkward since JAEPO 2021 is under the world pandemic declaration, which reduced in person audiences significantly. There will be no super announcements as long as Japanese government declares a lockdown, whi...

Re: Dodonpachi Saidaioujou EXA LABEL

Like others, I am not surprised that Exa Arcadia is selling like hotcakes in Japan since it is their most active market, in spite of the pandemic. I hear from a few folks like Arcade Heroes that tout that 2021 will be the year of Exa Arcadia. Even the latest announcement of Exa Arcadia IO boards are...

Re: exA-Arcadia

About that "content options" for the Fight of the Gods AC, I wonder if there is a configuration option for "game with / without Buddha" under operator settings?

That request situation seems unique And hopes that it does not constitute a separate cartridge for that version.

At least more reasonable articles are bringing light to the situation. They explained that Sega is selling off the management aspect while still continuing to make arcade games and maintaining their game center brand. https://www.dualshockers.com/sega-stops-arcades-management-japan-explained/ Regard...

Arcade questions that don't deserve a thread

This is a topic designed for arcade-related questions, such as repairs, game settings, etc. that users don't think deserves it's own thread.

Question:

Does anyone possess the arcade version of house of the dead scarlet Dawn? If so, how can they access game settings (coins, difficulty, etc.)?

Re: Dodonpachi Saidaioujou EXA LABEL

So far, it looks like this game showcases single player, based on the current information from screenshots. The original Sai Dai Ou Jou features 2 player simultaneous co-op. Are there any game modes for this Exa Label that will either be 1 player only or 2 player supported?

I know that it would be too expensive but ideally, as a universal conversion kit, it should include: - Vewlix marquee + instruction strip - Noir / Lindbergh marquee + instruction strip - New Net City / Naomi marquee + instruction strip Of course, that's a ton of paper, but it would fit any situatio...
