Re: WTB: Sega Lindbergh/Namco Noir 2P Control Panel

There's a billion Noir panels on YAJ at the moment, and @alberto1225 can make repros.

Re: Wtb Irem Modonna cp + parts

Talk to alberto1225 for the CP: https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=37094 LemonyVengeance can probably make you a harness.

Re: exA-Arcadia

Cyberlead? Pretty sure they are 15/24khz, with the Cyberlead II being a tri-sync. Might be wrong, it's been a while. MrJBRPG - JVS cabs and/or I/O converters are not in any way rare outside of Japan.. certainly less common than what you'd see in a modern large Japanese Game Center, but this is hard...

It was a bare PCB, not a kit. Sold for 149k yen last month.
Fair point, but that bare PCB with broken 1P inputs on YAJ just sold for 17K yen more. :awe: Makes no sense!

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

scramble is a known bootlegger on YAJ. Most Japanese collectors who are active on online marketplaces are aware of this, although it is totally possible that some unwitting person will get bamboozled.

Sure wish it was easy to import cabs, I'd get that Aero Table in a heartbeat.

Re: SFV: Arcade Edition Coming to Japan Arcades in 2019

There has been a long-standing issue with consistent input latency during gameplay that has caused a number of complaints from the competitive scene.

Re: SFV: Arcade Edition Coming to Japan Arcades in 2019

Why on Earth would you think that hooking up an external controller would somehow introduce input lag? The reason for this addition is two-fold: You have younger players who prefer to play on pads (or just pad players in general), and you also have other players who prefer to play on their own equip...
