Re: Painted candys, any out there?

I got a shell of a cute that was black. I put a CRT and loom in and whatnot and painted it grey - I knew I'd never match one of the original colours exactly so picked something in a sort of matching shade. Just had a look around but I can't see a pic on here sadly.

Re: Taito F3 Super Cup Finals: Who has a cart?

I think the only games with cart releases were Arkanoid Returns Bubble Memories Bubble Symphony / Bubble Bobble II Cleopatra Fortune Darius Gaiden - Silver Hawk Elevator Action II / Elevator Action Returns Gekirindan Hat Trick Hero '94 / International Cup '94 Hat Trick Hero '95 / Taito Power Goal Ka...

Re: It's for free!

I know you said no posting but if you had any of the side screw caps Pang was looking for one or two I think. Not sure if he still needs any like.

Re: ST-V scans/wiki

This is an awesome thing you're doing. I only have Terra Diver on STV, I'll give it a check over to see if it's any different. If you have the energy for it it's be a great idea to do the similar thing for supernova and maybe even F3 :awe:

How long between opening first game and licking the cart? I reckon Cools took all of about 30 seconds.

Re: Neo Geo MVS Lordsvale Monitor Problem

It's most likely that a capacitor or two on the chassis is on the way out or has failed and all the caps need replacing. (non expert, happy to be told I'm wrong) Grant Spain on here would be your man. You'd have to discharge the monitor (carefully) then remove it and ship it off to him. Alternativel...

Re: MS8 26 Horizontal size adjustment (Aero city)

There is a jumper near the flyback and I think that's what you need to move it by an inch on each side. The H size fine tuning is done with the ferrite core pot but I don't think you'd get an inch out of it. They can be fragile so go careful if you do adjust it and only use plastic tools with it. So...

Re: You've Got Grail

I remember Mo telling me he paid £600 each for several SF2 pcbs close to release and £400 for boots. According to the Bank of England inflation calculator £600 in 1991 is £1161 in 2016 money.

ODST is my favourite Halo game and also the most chilled out of the series. Must cost about tuppence nowadays.

Normal carriage bolts and a Dremel or something to remove the extra bit of material on the square section?

Re: Voltage Converter / Step Down Transformer advice

$0.02 Airlink are still they way to go for a prebuilt affair in a case. Or you could go for the Cools approved internal stepdown method which would be cheaper. Two from one stepdown is no problem. I doubt you will get anywhere near the advertised peak wattage on any of those cabs and I'm sure you ca...

Re: Super Nintenbros!

Summer holidays start on Friday. Got myself a WiiU to celebrate. Got it sitting waiting til I walk out of school. Can't wait.

Got Mario Kart 8, Windwaker HD, Hyrule Warriors, Yoshi's Wooly World, Shovel Knight, Mario Maker, New Super Mario Bros U, just need to decide what to play first.
