I know I've seen that list and I was excited to see the most of the games I play on MAME gathered on one board. It's just handy to have such a small board with a bunch of very cool games. I personally think this might be as solid as the 60 in 1 iCade boards. If so it'll be worth the money. Hope someone knows ;)

I would consider getting one, but I only have a Hori Cab at the moment so a lot of the Vert games would be useless to me.

I should be getting a unit by the end of the week - will test it and probably put a video up on youtube...

Game list looks pretty good but if it's like the Blue Elf 108-in-1 i'd rather pass. Why you ask? The blue elf board just wasn't powerful enough to emulate the games for the full 100%. Every single game ran in 30 fps instead of 60, Yukk! Also don't understand that they're putting horizontal and vertical games on one pcb. They should split them up on seperate pcb's like the classic 60-in-1 or have it jumpered to switch between the 2 modes.

If you get one of these newer boards please let us know if it does a good job of emulating the original games. Always nice to have a collection like this on one pcb like.

Only the 19 versions of KOF then. Not sure there's enough versions to choose from... ;)

So it's an FPGA simulating CPS1/2 Neo Geo then.

They are probably not as good as MAME emulations but for the price it looks like it could be a pretty good deal. Would be interested to see how it runs.

After some googling i believe this is the manufacturer's website. You will find a lot of other 'repro' articles here which doesn't surprise me when it's from China. Even rebranded Naomi cabs. :|

This PCB is new version,much faster,stable and reliable

Chubsta, when yours arrives can you take a high res photo of the board itself? Be interested to see what they are using. Probably a Spartan and 68k but interesting to know ;)

As it goes, if you check here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Happy-Fish-302-In ... 0356643873

You can see there is space for two pin headers to attach, I'd assume the one on the right would be the kick harness attachment.

That also appears to be the stock photo for the unit since it's the same picture wherever you find it. Might be a proto or something.

well, hopefully should know soon enough anyway - when it arrives ill do close up photos, find out if you really can have 2l6b on it, and take a video for youtube of it running...

Im expecting the neogeo stuff to be pretty spot-on as it doesnt take much to run that, but be interesting how well the very games like dodonpachi look on it - ill be running it in a 20" Lordsvale mvs s the screen is a little small for vert games. Also, whether you can have it set up for a vert monitor anyway as i suspect it will just be horizontal with borders...

Any news on this? Is the emulation any good? Is the screen image rotatable or do you have to play with black borders on the sides of vert games?

Thanks.

vertical games play with borders
5/6 buttons are wired in via connector fits between the board and the jamma connector - looks like a jamma connector but 2 of the spare pins are raised for fastening your wires to.
dont think the emulation is as good as the 108-in-1 board
the software isnt as user-friendly and good looking as the 108-in-1
