Hi! I'm ChainSwordCS, I'm super interested in video game research and documentation. I'm kind of a lurker on forums, and I might not be active here, so I hope my account isn't automatically purged. I actually created this account so I could touch up one or two articles on the wiki, like If you're curious, here's my YouTube: ... BSrXtSXOLg

Hello from Canada!

Finally got a house and can pursuit my dream of having a small arcade of candy cabs. Been wanting once since 2008, but such is life in Toronto.

Hello, everyone. I am happy to be on such a wonderful forum!

Although I own a few arcade machines, I am new to the hobby and have extremely limited experience working with electrical components. I joined this forum to better understand arcade hardware and to meet others who share similar interests. I plan on asking many questions in the near future and I hope that does not bother anyone.

Thank you all for having me! :D

Just got my first cab and will be making it a refurb project for me and my eldest.

It's a Silent Scope with the dreaded 11P hardware error so will be looking to see if there is more/new info on how to fix this beyond having my entire board being sent away.

Looking forward to chatting! : )

Hello everybody!

I'm Edgar from México.
I'm pretty new to the arcade world (not gaming because I've been doing that for a while now).
I always wanted to own an arcade cabinet and until recently I finally got one!
Pretty excited and really hungry for knowledge.

Hey, Leigh here. Hello fellow enthusiast!!!! I am new here but ancient in person. Based in England. Been playing since the old days and arcade machines are the real deal. Passion for CRT - can we just bring them back? Looking to upgrade my life in 2021 and buy my first Blast/NAC/Egret etc, when I move house. Own a half decent PCE library, Jp MD, Saturn and SFC too.

Used to own a Geo AES back in 2003, and then an MVS collection in 2011 but all sold and now I regret it.

Looking forward to seeing less of Corona and more of MiSTerCade in 2021 :)

New to this forum, but been on ukvac for around 3 years.
Been a collector for 3 years.

Have had a fair few machines, which means I have had a fair few arcade related issues. With help of forum members- every issue has always been resolved.
I enjoy giving back as i learn, and helping others with their problems, probably like this more than fixing my own stuff.

I mainly like the 90s 3d era. Sega Model 1,2,3, Naomi, Triforce.
But do have some early jamma cabs, and machines such as Space Invaders, track and field.

Hope to use this forum to expand on contacts and knowledge, as well as provide more eople with any knowledge I may have.
I am a designer, but don't have that much time for arcade related design work, but I will help when I can, where I can.

Hi everyone, I live in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) and I'm always thirsty for knowledge. I got high expectations in this forum so I hope this place is a kind of "Cult to the Arcade Retro Scene".

Best to all! :awe:
