Re: Is my PSU dead?

Everything turned out better than expected! Turned out the switch was definitely not working, but after popping it out it seemed to work fine, so I just soaked it in alcohol for good measure in case there was any gunk in there, dried it off, and popped it back in and it's working again. Thanks for t...

Re: Is my PSU dead?

Thanks for the tips. I couldn't find anything on the AO wiki as far as diagrams or something that would help me figure out how to take apart the PSU. Are there any other resources or places to look?

Is my PSU dead? (Answer: No! Thanks for help :)

I tried to turn one of my Astro City cabs on the other day, and nothing happened. Normally when flipping the power switch it makes a pretty strong click, and now it just softly flips into the on position. I'm not sure if the PSU is dead or perhaps the toggle switch could have broken? What's my best ...

Re: Xbox & Xbox Kinect Discussion

I'm gonna be getting Reach for sure. I wasn't too into ODST (though Firefight was cool), but this one is looking better and better all the time.

Re: Xbox Kinect

I got to play the Dance game and it's pretty awesome. Everything else was just a Wii game, although the device itself is much more impressive than the Wii controllers.

Re: Marvel vs capcom 3

The font looks like classic comic book onomatopoeia text. I like it, and I think the 3D artwork is best case scenario. It's what SFIV should have looked like. And I especially like all the effects when players get hit. Oh, and the backgrounds are fantastic too: they're colorful and have lots of inte...

So are people still hating on the visuals or did this do the trick?

Re: Mario Galaxy 2

I kind of wish I hadn't played the first one and just started with this one. The first one had some really nagging problems, but the problem with this one is that the novelty has worn thin and I'd rather be playing NSMBWii.

Re: Consoles in cabs - yay or nay?

I paid under $500 for a ton of awesome Cave games that I couldn't have possibly afforded PCBs of, and that's just with the 360 hooked up to my cabinets. It's certainly cost effective if you can deal with the little things like having the console's logo pop up when you boot up, and some less than per...

Re: Super Street Fighter IV

A friend picked this up and brought it over the other day. The new characters drastically improve the game, but they still haven't fixed the fugly graphics and sluggish feel of it. Juri and Hakan are great additions and I really enjoy playing with both of them. Juri can combo into her ultra pretty e...

Re: Cave | Get your japanese X360 now...

I'm sure Xbox 360 mode in 640 x 480 would look fantastic on a CRT. It sure does! :shh: Seconding this. All of the Cave ports sans DOJBLEX look excellent in their original arcade modes with the smoothing turned off and overscan set up properly. The 360 modes look even better though. ESPGaluda II 360...

Re: Cave Story (Doukutsu Monogatari) - Free PC platformer

Make sure to play with a notebook and pen/pencil to take notes of the clues you find. The game does not hold your hand at all.

Re: Cave Story (Doukutsu Monogatari) - Free PC platformer

However, I don't think you will be too dissapointed as I stumbled upon a great free PC platformer called Cave Story. Have you been living in a cave for the past 5 years? :-) Yes, and now i'm trying to shoot my way out of it :) lol This is a great game. If you're suddenly into PC indie platformer ty...

I got mine yesterday.

It's a really fantastic port. I'm really happy with it though I was bracing for DOJBLEX quality.

Re: Marvel vs capcom 3

It's too early to say from the teaser, but this could end up looking nice (note: I'm not auto-biased against 3D). I think SFIV looks ugly, but this could potentially look much nicer, especially since Marvel is involved and they were probably telling Capcom not to make their characters look like ****...
