Re: Mame in cab thread. Frontends, gamelists, configuration

I would love to have the Egret II vertical theme for Mala converted for Hyperspin. Is this a hard process? Great work!

Anybody using a JVS-PAC with Capcom I/O successfully?

I am trying to get this to work. I noticed on the site that it says not supported, but confirmed to work? I plug it into mine and get flashing blue and green light continuously. When I connect it to a Sega i/o, it works. Has anybody had any luck with this combination? I was hoping the Capcom one wou...

Re: Blast City PSU making a buzzing sound

I have the same with my Blast City. Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. I have noticed that it will go away sometimes when the picture/scene changes on the monitor. I used to have a dedicated Virtua Fighter 2 machine that did the same, but nothing ever happened in the 2 years that we owned i...

Re: Blast City Header light

Used a voltmeter today, I do NOT have any power to the header plug. Does anybody know where it traces back to on the junction boards near the coinbox?

Re: Blast City Header light

So this is probably my problem? A FL20T12 will definitely not work? Even though it fits? I had a link to a supplier, but they want 15/ea with a limit of 25 dollar purchase, so I was thinking of buying 2. But I want to make sure this will hopefully fix my issue. I don't know if it "definitely" won't...

Re: Blast City Header light

When you say "plugged in", did you mean up top? there are 2 wires coming out of the marquee light that plug into another cable that goes down below. I am using an FL20T12 lamp. Is that correct? In another thread, somebody told me to use an FL20T10. Is that my problem?

Re: Nanao MS2930 15khz oddity via VGA

It is actually a little darker. Which is why I turned the contrast up a little. Its not even at 50 percent. The HD 4670 is connected to the VGA cable with a dvi to vga adapter. I don't think that is an issue, because it does it with the ArcadeVGA card connected straight into VGA. There is a setup sc...

Nanao MS2930 15khz oddity via VGA

I have just picked up an arcadevga card to use in my Blast City and have been having problems with the monitor. The monitor goes out if the screen is mostly white. I do not have this problem if I run in 31khz mode. Has anybody else experienced this problem? It does this when using my RADEON 4670 car...

Re: Blast City Nanao MS-2930 Issue

I'm a little tech savy, i would say. Is this a pretty easy fix? I've worked near bare monitors like this in the past.

Re: Starter for Astro?

I'm trying to replace the light fixture in my Blast City. But I am a total noob. Will this method work for me as well? Is there a particular model of fixture I should buy? Can it be picked up at home depot, lowes, etc.? Thanks!

Re: Blast City marquee lights

Thanks. I was thinking that you actually bought a new fixture. I think that's the route i need to take now. I have replaced the starter and bulb and still don't get anything.

Re: Blast City marquee lights

What did you end up picking up exactly? I am pretty new to this scene. I bought a new starter and my light still doesn't work. I have reseated the cables/wires and still dead. Is there a particular model that ican get at Home Depot or Lowes? Thanks!

Blast City Header light

My light is toast. I replaced the starter and bulb and am still getting nothing. I found a link telling how somebody replaced the light with an off the shelf kit from Home Depot, but I am in need of a better tutorial. Preferably one for somebody who hasn't done this sort of thing before. Any help? T...
