Re: exA-Arcadia

I've only just noticed the attract mode :awe: it appears that the system shows the game located in each slot and cycles between them. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EEGkQ64U0AArbk5?format=jpg&name=small This is the first time we’ve had the full attract modes on test. The menu screen will recognize all...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Isn't the export market like less than 1% of the size of the domestic Japanese market? I'm sure I read some ridiculous number like that somewhere. The Chinese market is bigger than Japan. Japan is stagnant to declining but is the hardest market to penetrate. Note that even the top Chinese (Wahlap, ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

This week is GTI and TGS so not around to reply to everything. For the concerned topics: 1. 1st lot preorders from overseas will likely get the unit before the Japanese operators 2. It’s actually going to be sold less than the Japanese price for overseas buyers 3. Patches in this run are only handle...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I'm guessing that all of these kits wil be reprinted once they sell out. I assume by "limited" you mean on initial release? Also well done for making this new Hardware and wrangling so many developers :thumbup: I imagine this wasn't an easy venture. Depends upon the game but we have a limited produ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

It’s on a cabinet basis for the period we do a test in a given location. Ok, but then it is not really surprising that the EXA Cab will generate more (single cab based) income when you only have one, while let say Tekken 7 FR R2 runs on 10 or more cabs. :think: As an arcade owner, you look at how m...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Average net income per title meaning after costs like forced revenue share, printer (FGO), etc How is that possible ? How many Cabs do you have on Location in Japan ? Or are we talking about a certain Location your date is based on ? Even that would be odd as i would expect the Ratio is atleast 5:1...

Re: exA-Arcadia

It has by far the most income out of any product in the standard cabinet category. We have beat Nesica, All Net, Gundam, Tekken and SF5 by wide margins every time. Would you care to explain your measurement details? You are comparing a single cab income with your location test cab income? Average n...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I have some general questions; 1. What is the expected retail price of the motherboard + game 2. Can a game be swapped between different motherboards? Thanks Japanese price will differ from other regions as our distributors have controls over that. A lot will be available to North American and Euro...

Re: exA-Arcadia

The arcade version has to be unique/exclusive (correct me if I'm wrong Shou). :think: wait and see. I was excited but not anymore .I played to aka to blue at the hey for me I saw no differences with mobile version .It was just more fun to play at aka on a vewlix cabinet, Type-R will never go to con...

Re: exA-Arcadia

I asked Shou about it directly (CRT version) since I only own CRT cabs, and he said its pretty much the bottom priority and required the purchase of extra hardware. I would imagine that it's nothing they're proud of, and should only be used as a very last resort. I'm just going to forget it was eve...

Re: exA-Arcadia

What's the general consensus from the Aka to Blue location tests? Is Japan enjoying it? It has by far the most income out of any product in the standard cabinet category. We have beat Nesica, All Net, Gundam, Tekken and SF5 by wide margins every time. The final game pushes the hardware to the max a...

Re: exA-Arcadia

Still so many 15kHz cabinets in japans arcade centers and no priority on CRT? I dont get it. The ones that just have 15kHz cabs more than likely aren't buying new games. Also, you can now get a used Vewlix cheaper than you can get a working Astro or Blast, so there's really no point. Vewlix L is ar...

Still so many 15kHz cabinets in japans arcade centers and no priority on CRT? I dont get it. If i wanna play on a LCD i tate my PC monitor. :( . So have to pass on this if no CRT support available. CRT cabinets are a minority now in Japan. There are few left in the marketplace and prices have gone ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

It's not trivial to reduce your playable game view down from 16:9 to 4:3, or expand vertically, and keep your design 100% intact without making changes (unless you're something like a puzzle game with a fixed game field you can just add space around). I did wonder how they'd handle that if 4:3 CRT ...

Re: exA-Arcadia

So.. uuh.. is the exa available yet? What games actually ended up on it? How much does it cost? One game i think would be a good fit is artezneits yaktouga 4, if they remixed the weird porn out and did some slight balancing you have a top tier cave/raizing worthy game here, im sure a small indie de...

I don’t know what you mean by auto rotation but surely there’s simply a horizontal/vertical setting in the test menu.
A dip switch will determine the orientation for a vertically optimized game. If you do this with a horizontal oriented game, it obviously will not rotate.

@Shou, is the EXA team working on a downscaler solution (add on?) for 15khz folk?
We are looking at this but the market is proving to be tiny in relation to overall orders.
For launch, only analog 31kHz will be supported with a separate adapter.
