Re: (Custom) arcade sticks; what's the use/appeal?

Custom is always more expensive. No matter what kind of object you have custom made for you; it is mostly the man-hours of labor that you have to pay. Yes, the parts are the same, but the combination makes it unique and therefor people are willing to spend money on it. Obviously you can do it yourse...

Re: Marquee Group Order (Uni/NNC/Blast, Aero/NAC, AWSD/E2/3) ***OPEN****

I would like to order some too, but I'm wondering where can I find the move strips to match the marquees. I'm planning to get Hokuto No Ken and SF3 etc for my blast city... This comes up quite a bit but unfortunately I'm not able to offer move strips, just the marquees. Milspex is your guy, he is S...

Re: Ghouls 'n Ghosts on Supergun

Might be the monitor saying 'out of range' ? I have that sometimes with IREM boards, work fine on CRT but via Supergun I get no output (while other PCB's work fine on the Supergun)

Re: Items stv faps to on Yahoo Japan Auctions

Personally i'm hoping for prices to increase by 3x or so, it's honestly getting amusing to see some people blow so much cash on their pcb e-penis What's the fun there for the hobby guys who actually buy it play the games? The amount of CAVE's shifting hands the last months has become less and the [...

Re: Games you've been looking to buy for decades?

For me Dodonpachi Saidaioujou - I would expect at least an equal amount of DDP SDJ were created as with the other 2004+ CAVEs.
But so far I have not been able to find it (or I look in the wrong places :lolno: )

Re: List of Japanese Control Boxes / Superguns - Info & photos

I thought about it and, indeed, I guess I have an answer for the designs. We need to remember that all these superguns are made by very small companies. Japan is a country where it is quite easy to start a company and it has a a lot of these small companies. This is not professional work by our sta...

Re: List of Japanese Control Boxes / Superguns - Info & photos

Wow - this is quite the extensive list. Very nice. :awe:

What strikes me is that, apart from the Sega & AVx000 units, they are all so enormously ugly :wtf:
How on earth could somebody come up with such bad commercial visual designs? Anybody know the story behind that?
