Hi,

New to this forum, don't have a candy cab (yet) but own a few other cabs and bits and bobs.

I'm looking to learn more and expand my collection.

Merci.

Hey all.

I just bought myself a New Astro City cab and will be doing it up so wanted to introduce myself since I'll probably be asking lots of questions over the coming weeks :)

See you around!

Hi there,

i'm an arcade fan from France. After several months of reading, I finally decided to register.

For the history, after 10 years without video games, I went back to video games through the arcade!! I like a lot of arcade games, but especially SFIII 3rd strike and Ketsui.

See you on the forum.

Hello people.

I'm hardly new in arcade parts but haven't ever been over here. I keep getting told I should come over here to flog some of the stuff I've got to get rid of but obviously that's completely impolite, not to mention not possible straight away so that can wait for the time being :D

So, here I am.

I've got a number of old classic woodies. Couple of pinballs. Did have an E2 but that's now gone to a new home recently.

Should be getting something right up the ally of this place fairly soon. Fingers crossed and all that. More when the time comes :lol:

Howdy. my name is Brian, I have been into JP arcade cabs/PCBs since around back in '97 I believe, eventually I got rid of it all, recently I have been picking up PCBs, may pick up a small cab in the future, for now I am using a home made Supergun.

Hello chaps,

My name is James, or Jim, or whatever really... You can call me sweetheart if it takes your fancy.

I live in the southwest and I used to live in the arcades when I was a kid, never owned a machine though sadly.

Hi everyone. I've been lurking at this forum for quite a while and decided to finally sign up. I've been using a supergun and a consolized PGM to play arcade games but after a lot of thought I've decided to get myself a candy cab hopefully in the near future. The wiki and forum are a great resource of info which has really helped me already.

Hi Lordstar. So far I've got Demon Front, Dragon World 2, Dragon World 3, Knights of Valour, Knights of Valour 2, Martial Masters, Oriental Legend, Puzzle Star, The Gladiator and The Killing Blade. I'm planning to buy most of the available carts eventually and also get a PGM 2. Have you got any PGM games? Well worth it if you haven't already. I think IGS are a pretty underrated developer and thanks to them the 2d arcade beat 'em up genre is still alive. Can't wait till they finish KOV 3! :)

Halo,

Name is Ben, I have had a jamma cab for past 3 or 4 years now, have around 30 or so games for it. More a fan of the late 80's/early 90's stuff. But do love Outrun, Paperboy & Gauntlet. One day I plan to have all 3 lined up, but that day is a long way off yet :lol: Am big on my retro console games too. I am also on other forums (jamma+, Ukvac & Retro Gamer under bensonrad) but thought I would pop over here and have a look and spread my wings a bit :)

Cheers
Ben

Hello all,

I'm Jaelus from over at the neo-geo forums.. been lurking here for awhile. I've been collecting for about six years now and am up to 7 cabs atm: 4 slot big red, 4 player D&D Cab, Galaxian, Blast City (tate), AWSD, Super Neo 29 Type I (6 slot MVS), & Type II (HNG64). The woodies were my original cabs when I got into the hobby (had and sold a VF4:Evolution woodie as well), but I've since fallen in love with candies and my game tastes and collection has grown tremendously thanks to all the great people I've had the pleasure of getting to know in this hobby.

Glad to be here!
