Hey, I'm from Florida, I have been a massive fighting game fan since 1991 and spent most of my teenage years as an arcade rat. I'm here to learn all I can about arcade hardware so that I can attempt to acquire a cabinet or two of my own. Really looking forward to learning all I can from people here, and if anyone wants to play fighting games online, I am certainly up for that as well. Cheers.

Hell, hello there!

I'm Filipe. 29 years old from Portugal! Land of good wine, nice beaches, excelent food and Cristiano Ronaldo!

I decided to register in order to understand this hobby a little bit more. I'm still fairly new, but slowly getting more aquainted with the terms.
I've been a lurker for some time, but not anymore! Love the conversion projects, specially the Universal Naomis to New Net City. I've been on a lookout for a Naomi Universal to convert because Candy Cabs are impossible to find here! Maybe one day I can import one...

I currently own:

- MV1FZ ( Stopped working, waiting for eproms to burn diagnose Bios)
- MV1B (To do: Stero Mod and Universe Bios. Getting a NeoBiosMasta is gonna be expensive due to import dutties...)
- Pinball Action, bootleg ( Shows signs of life, but busted to hell. Documentation on these is very dificult)

Recently i've made an Minigun Supergun (Thanks Frank for the Open-Source project!), and now I can start collecting!

Cheers guys!

Hey all, I'm Jordan (or Chief).

I've always had an interest in arcade games but haven't delved too deep into real hardware. I have an original Space Invaders Color cocktail table from Japan that I got some time around 2016 and it was working up until recently, so I'm hoping to be able to fix it soon!

I managed to get a 1-slot Neo Geo board recently for a good price and thought it would be fun to build a bartop arcade, as I've basically got infinite time now because of the whole virus thing and have most of the parts I need. I'm planning on using the guts of a Thomson 4165 CRT (analog and digital RGB inputs) which should allow the cab to be wide enough for 2 sets of joystick + 6 buttons, perfect for CPS2 fighters whenever I get one of those.

I have far more electronics experience than woodworking experience, but I still want to style the bartop after some kind of candy cab that I played on as a kid in Japan. The Irem Madonna seems simple enough however I'm very open to other suggestions! I would love to make it look like an Egret 2 but the curves are a bit too complicated.

Anyway, glad to be here. :D

My name is Miles. I joined the forum specifically in search of a candy cab to buy, since I've already got an American standup style cab. Been collecting since about this time last year when I bought an MV1C; its been a downward spiral ever sense :D
