BUT, the real highlight of my day was that I found a Secret of Mana loose cart that I was able to talk down to $50! Plus, TMNT for the NES and a much needed replacement solder sucker.

Hours of gaming + vendors galore = happy Wolfie.

Sounds like an awesome day indeed thumb.gif I've been slacking on the game pickups...new girl around taking up some of my time and money that was previously for games tongue.gif Still grabbed a few things over the past while though, just nothing really worth mentioning...really just a bunch of common PS2 / Xbox games and other random bits. Don't think I've spend much more than$2 on a game lately redface.gif

Wow, sounds like you really played at a great arcade.

Not that any one has any reason to care, but I am also playing a lot of classic arcade games but via MAME as I go through thousands upon thousands of files trying to find playable/worth keeping games.

I only mention it because it's been kind of multi-month journey and I have only 45 left. I have go through, one-by-one, at least 8,000 files if not more looking for games I want to keep. And now I have 49 left. It's kind of feels like a thing.

I have found a few games I have never heard that just fantastic. When I go back through them I'll make notes and post them up here in case anybody might interested. And/or share the google spreadsheet.

Oh, and game total right now is 1386. With 49 files left I might get to 1,400. Which is actually more than I was expecting.

I'd certainly be interested to know which arcade games those are so I can try them on my Xbox.

One that I really like that no one has ever heard of is Dead Connection by Taito. I've never seen or played the actual cabinet, not even at Galloping Ghost as I remember, I've only played it on MAME.

This is an SNK game from 1987...

1987!!

the mame rom is called psychos.zip if anybody wants to try it. The full voiced sound track really blew me away. It's like some kind of hipster retro game made now...but it's from 1987...

Almost makes all those hours of ROM auditing worth it...One of the best if not the best game I've found so far. Of the ones I've never of I mean. In the top 5 at least.

Good find!! SNK put out some awesome games. I would love to pick up a 4 slot NeoGeo cab and a ton of carts so I could keep swapping them out.

I looked up the game and found that this character has been a part of King of Fighters for like 20 years/since the 90s. So perhaps it's not that unknown of a thing but I had never heard of it.

Also, I was playing the Japanese apparently i was playing the US version. Sound track is supposed to be better in the Japanese one. Luckily, there's youtube.

Oh I know about Psycho Soldier, it stars Athena right? I've never actually played it though. I'll give it a shot.

I played fighting games for a very long time and yes, Athena is one of the more popular characters from King of Fighters, she's been in them going back till like KOF96 or something. She's a very annoying, fireball spammer type character. She also has a shoryuken type move as well as a fireball reflect move. So she can range you out, reflect any projectiles you send at her as well as anti-air you if you try and jump in over a fireball. My friend I used to netplay KOF with used to use her well.

Any other suggestions, I would love to hear. I need more good arcade games to play on my Xbox.

If you like arcade cabs and stuff just pay attention to the below

Also, I am working on refurbishing my arcade stick...it has fallen into disrepair. One of the edges of the box came unglued and would slip around, so I glued it, but I used gorilla glue and it expands as it dries, leaving a very ugly white layer in between the pieces of wood. I colored over it with a brown permanent marker so now you can't really tell there's a gap there. I did new art for the stick that's pretty cool and only took me around an hour in photoshop. I also found a shop to make me a new clear acrylic top piece (the part that goes over the art) because the old one is cracked and scratched. I bought 6 new standard red Sanwa 30mm screw-in buttons. I had Seimitsu clear buttons that you can stick your cut-out pieces of your art in to make it look contiguous (see the picture of my stick a few pages back). The problem is that these buttons were lower quality and would sometimes drop my quick inputs, particularly chain combos in games like Melty Blood. The stick originally had the exact same screw-in Sanwa buttons and they worked a lot better. Anyway, I'm just waiting for my new acrylic top piece to be made and then I can put it all back together, wire it up (takes me like 5 minutes I've done it so much) and then it will be like new again. It's worth the effort considering it's only costing me around $60 to do and the stick originally cost me close to $300 (it's fully custom, after all).

Anyway, I'm not sure if I mentioned but I'm getting a PS2 to original Xbox converter to be able to use my arcade stick on the Xbox for Coinops, Final Burn Legends and so on. I've pretty much retired from fighting games, no interest in tournaments, no interest in SF4 or SF5. So at least this way my stick will get some use, it's mostly sat in a closet for the last two years.

It was tedious in places : D , That would be a nightmare : P


Ive wired it up to the running stage and its working !! over 250 cables later and it worked . Just have to do the selector stage for the games and a few bits and pices and it will be done .

Select any of the 5 arcade game PCBs with the turn of a switch : D .
