the problem is that no other country besides Japan has experience with the JVS IO boards.
That's not true. Arcade operators are very familiar with this.
JVS has been well known since the late 90s. Tekken 3 came out it 1997 and that was already JVS compliant.

Unless you run a Raw Thrills exclusive arcade, I don't think JVS will come as a surprise to anyone.

I guess that must have been me looking things up about JAMMA compatible input pins for PC / MAME and was not familiar as much with JVS being talked about for arcade businesses in my area.

However, I am excited for how more frequent 4 player JVS compliant games will blossom under Exa Arcadia. Heck, even 8 player games can be a strong possibility.

And also, beside Japanese being the officially documented for JVS, plenty of dedicated arcade fans manage to translate that into other languages as well. That was from my internet investigation alone.

That quote doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I'm no EXA expert but from what i've read they work on anything JVS with at least 31k video. So they probably meant something along these lines.
It’s also important to note that if you plan on picking one of these kits up, that you install them into a proper cabinet.

No offense but you probably shouldn't write lengthy epistels or questions about things you know nothing about.

Is there a JVS compatible cabinet that's 15khz only? I can't think of one.

Anyway, if you're an op in the US, you can just pick up any old Tekken 4 / 5 cab and drop an exA in there. Doesn't have to be a "candy cab" at all.

I miss that cabinet. Gave it away to a mate who was in the country I was in at the time because it was too wide to get through any regular doors!

I do not believe they are JVS so they are not compatible.

What are the chances that the Aka & Blue stuff sells out and is going to be hard to find? I.e.- do I have time to think about it and wait- or are we going to be assed out like some of those cave kits nowadays?
From what we have seen, next 6 months the demand is high and supply is low.
If we do not meet a minimum amount of preorders for the next lot of Aka & Blue, there won't be anymore.

Games like Vritra and Rival Megagun are getting overhauled at the moment, when they debut, there will be a clear difference between previous versions and the arcade only version.

Any chance for buy an exa with games when I will come directly in Japan please? Thx
I calculated the customs fees .....a little too much with the 20 pour-cent more :oops:
Price in Japan is 550,000 JPY or so which is set by the distributors not us. Likely no available stock in Japan until next year.
@Shou
What will be the delivery date if I decide to order an exa + Aka kit TODAY?

JVS cabinets are absolutely way more common than you're thinking they are. It's used in a lot more than just candy cabinets too.

Pretty sure they are 15/24khz, with the Cyberlead II being a tri-sync. Might be wrong, it's been a while.

@MrJBRPG - JVS cabs and/or I/O converters are not in any way rare outside of Japan.. certainly less common than what you'd see in a modern large Japanese Game Center, but this is hardly an obstacle for even a new operator if they want to run these boards on location outside of Japan. The more important issue is requiring a 31khz display, as it's likely that many ops outside of Japan only have 15khz displays on their lever-based cabs, since they're mostly JAMMA. Outside of Arcades that specialize in or have modern fighters, you don't see too many 31khz displays that aren't deluxe machines (e.g. racing, shooting).
