I totally regret letting go of Mystic Warriors and Xexex pcbs for stupid money - didn’t think I’d ever want to use them again (this was some ten years ago when I ‘left’ the Arcade scene) ....

Well, I was upset that it was not running properly. Probably a new power supply would have solved the problem. On the other hand ponies were common 15 years ago. As I mentioned before they were like 100-250chf.

Swapped my 14" chip shop Jamma cab and 8 PCB's inc Shinobi, Gradius 3, haunted Castle and ghosts n goblins for a Japanese Megadrive and 5 Carts. I already had an MD but I wanted 2 of the games he had!! this was back in the early 90s
I remember Gradius 3 being extremely difficult I never got past the 3rd boss, the one with the criss-cross lasers, and It didn't let you continue, I remember sticking tiny bits of blutak on the screen of where to keep the ship from being hit.
