Re: Forum questions, suggestions and bugs.

Uh, so on a recent sale, the person I interacted with accidentally put my feedback as negative with a positive comment.

He confirmed that this is a mistake, and it should be positive. Is there some way to resolve/change this?

Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

Is 100eur for MVS Kizuna Encounter with fake label reasonable?
The recent sales on ebay seems to have been higher than that.

Realized that I have two Kizuna carts for some reason.

Re: exA-Arcadia

What do you mean lagless DAC? Its literally impossible for a DAC to not add at least one frame of lag since it needs to buffer full frames. More than that is common. Except it doesn't have a frame buffer. See here: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=59860 (the Tendak one) I looked into...

Re: exA-Arcadia

We just tried the hardware in a Net City yesterday. The DAC that was used is this thing . Honestly, it looked pretty bad. I can understand someone might like the cropping, but the IQ was pretty terrible. The MS2933 also had trouble syncing when the image was adjusted to the correct size. It would r...

Re: demon front mvs?????

I think this game is overrated to be honest.

It looks really really good, but the gameplay just feels... a bit lacking compared to Metal Slug.

Re: Any PCB shops left in Japan?

eh, no its not. You buy a 4kY suitcase at Don Quiote and most airlines have a 1 bag flying in 2 bags flying out policy. Why would you pay extra for shipping/customs and everything else? I have done exactly this twice, but prefer to use Bic Camera cause it's less chaotic compared to "Donki". Usually...

Re: Mikado Game Center Europe

This is cool. Hoping to visit some time.
Had the opportunity to visit both of the Tokyo locations last week.
Fun to see these types of places still being around, since other Tokyo arcades dont have as much in terms of shmups/classic fighters

How much is fair to charge for a Waku Waku 7 MVS repair (original roms except for P1 which has been swapped for an eprom, but original rom is included)

Image cut in half on Nanao MS9?!?

Anyone know what can cause an image to have a big black line in the middle of the screen, and then have the image wrap over (image below). If I leave it running like this, eventually the monitor shuts itself off (loses sync?) Then when I restart it, it starts working perfectly again?!? Image of issu...

Re: List of caps for Nanao MS8-29?

MS8-29 had a bunch of revisions. That's why I wouldn't trust any list unless it included a pic of the chassis. Anyway, since you asked: C332 is on the neck board, it's 10uf 250V C433 is close to the vertical deflection IC, it's 470uf 35V. As for C442, I think it's a typo. C422 is next to C913 and C...

Re: List of caps for Nanao MS8-29?

The values are written on the caps. I know, but my hope was to order them before taking out the monitor + chassi, since I won't have time to do that for a few days. It´s quite confusing how a lot of caps mentioned on https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Nanao_MS8-29 does not exist in this list: https://w...

List of caps for Nanao MS8-29?

Trying to fix an issue with my MS8 (https://photos.app.goo.gl/TL7hkkStCoqu62AD9) Looks like a recap should fix it. When I look at this wiki: https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Nanao_MS8-29 the description at the top states exactly what my problem is, and to "Replace C911 C913 C442" ... but I can't find ...

Re: Tokyo Jungle - the best survival game featuring Pomeranians!

Tokyo Jungle is a great game, but I think this video didn't really touch on most of what makes the game special. Just running around as a Pomeranian in the beginning is not very representative of the game as a whole. That's like... a few percentage of what the game is about maybe. As you progress, y...
