Arcade PCB collectors?
« on: June 13, 2015, 09:13:32 AM »
I am considering getting a Supergun to run original arcade boards at home. Any PCB collectors here?

One of our members, [member=5515]arcadeaction[/member], has a nice set up at his house.  I'm not sure if he has a Supergun. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Still, can just grab a few classics that resonate with you and leave it at that!
Man I spent so much money in my twenties running around being an idiot I could have a huge collection by
now but i suppose life gets in the way lol

I've got a few arcade boards, but like Zapiy said it's an expensive business to get into and their fragile as hell. The MVS carts are bullit proof though and I have about 12 original plus a 161-1 multicart. I play them in a four slot MVS cab.

On the PCB side I have an original Double Dragon, Cps2 Super Street Fighter, some bootlegs like Tetris, SnowBros, Euroleague and some multi game Jamma boards.

The other option is get a Jamma cab and a Jpac and connect up a Mame PC. Jamma cabs are Mame ready, no need to mod or rip out Looms or Crts. Just add a Jac from https://www.ultimarc.com/jpac.html and your ready to go. Get a front end like Mala or Hyperspin and you can boot into a menu screen ready to play your favourite games...

Great collection Vader! I thought about getting a supergun once, but like everyone else is saying the cost held me back. I do plan on buying a MVS converter for my Neo Geo soon though.

Best place to buy a cab in the UK is from a Arcade forum like UKVac or Jamma Plus. Lots of advice too and honest descriptions of the Arcade Cabinet. The Picade is a Kickstarter Bartop from Pimoroni.



Whenever I replace a laptop screen for work they get shipped in these storage boxes - Decent protection for PCBS.

I've got about 130 PCBs, hard to store mostly due to size. Maybe I'll get around to listing what I have soon :D
