Hello, I'm an arcade operator and tech from the US. I have LOTS of rare parts I'm looking to get rid of and some others I'm looking to purchase to complete projects.

I also like monitors, until they stop working.

Hello,

just a couple of words about myself. I am from Germany and collecting arcade games since roughly 10 years now. Started with an Atari Asteroids Cocktail and now I have ~40 games in a gameroom, spanning vectors, rasters, pinballs and also EM games. My website about 'Vector Games' is this one here: http://www.andysarcade.de .

I have some good experience/equipment in repairing PCBs and all other stuff I own, up to around 1985. Recently I was asked to check and sell some more modern PCBs for a friend and so getting used to 68000 CPUs and RAMS/PROMS larger than 24 pins.

Best Regards,
Andreas

Hi,

Only recently got into this hobby, and have so far only bought one cabinet (Electrocoin Xenon) which I am in the process of cleaning and fixing up. Looking to buy a candy cab now as I have always wanted one and I reckon I can sneak it into the front room.

Cheers

Stu

Hey guys,

after committing to video game tech for ages now, it's finally time to dive into arcade hardware. Quite a few users here sound familiar and I probably know several members from other sites like the shmups forum, through my website http://retrogaming.hazard-city.de/" or just by emailing for many years now. I'm very much looking forward to my first arcade experience!

Hey All!

Joining in from NC, USA. I recently attended my first arcade auction where I picked up a Ver. 1 Initial D Twin Arcade cabinet. I am new to this hobby, but have been looking for as much information as possible to get to better know my cabinets. I also have a Ver. 3 Initial D Twin cabinet, which after doing more research, looks like it is actually a frankenstein on a Ver. 1 cabinet with Ver. 2 plastics, and Ver. 3 software.

Looking forward to asking some newb questions here to get myself acclamated with the Naomi platform!

Hi all

I'm pretty new in arcade and it's all mastercellos "fault" that i started with this new hobby. Saw his incredible youtube videos and could also visit his crazy man cave, called office :D . So i also needed an Egret 2 and unfortunately Cave games are the ones i love. In my youth i mostly played arcade games and didn't touch any pinball machines. But pinball is now my main hobby. I own 3 pinball machines (AC/DC, Attack from Mars and a Creature from the black lagoon). Also like to restore those machines as you can see here:

Hello. After waiting patiently for a candy cab to become available within reasonable driving distance, I finally have the opportunity to acquire a Sega Blast City. I'm the southeast US, so most of those that go up for sale are ~3000 miles west of me. If all goes well, I'll finally be an owner instead of an envy-er.

Hi, 26 year old IT guy from Sweden, working and living in Malta, here.

Had nothing to do one day so I walked in to my boss office and said that an arcade machine sounds like a cool idea, he agreed and now I´m no longer the "it-guy" at the office but the "arcade-manager".

Hi all,
Im from Sydney Australia. Owned a few cabinets over the last 15 years, namely the Astro City series. I'm not an operator, I am just a home user who enjoys the feel of real arcade hardware. Thought I'd join up and have a read around, being we all share the same interest. See you around!

Hey,

I had an account here earlier, guess it got deleted since I'm more of a lurker, but I've used AO to buy some stuff in the past, such as Out Zone and Sunset Riders from Rosco (still enjoying the hell out of Out Zone :awe:).

Anyways, good to be back.
