Quoted from Darkwing:

Still digging mine. I like that I can go into the options and set it to easy mode so you don’t have to pump to reload. I’ll turn it back on when I get better

I picked up one last weekend and I'm really enjoying it as well. Screen size really doesn't even bother me as you stand back a bit so it seems larger then it is. Nice I didn't realize you could change the setting to not use the reload I think I'll definitely try that out as this isn't an easy game by no means. I'm really enjoying all the different bonus games as well at the end of each section.

Has anyone tried the Big Buck Hunter version? Seems like the screen might be too small, but who knows?

I have one on the way and bought the 20” screen upgrade kit.

Tulsa arcades has the mount and new bezel with graphics. Need a dell 2007fp can get used pretty cheap and proper 4:3 format 1600x1200 resolution . Need the geek worm adapter as well.

Check out this video, has all the parts and info

#357 7 months ago

Sweet, thanks!

#358 7 months ago

Forgot to mention, the world edition is currently on sale at walmart.com for $449 and free shipping.

Seems like a good deal if your planning on sinking a couple bucks to upgrade monitor.

I can’t fit the full size cab down my stairs so it’s my only option.

Dude, I’m all over this if they do a house of the dead. I can’t get the full size ones in my basement.

My buddy owns the full size BBH Pro and another buddy just bought the A1up version. Lets put it this way. Spending the extra cash on a real one is ridiculous. You get 4 games on the 1up, a lot lighter to move and you can put a nice size monitor in and still cost less then the OG game. The only other thing I would suggest is making a taller riser for it. I want one but have too many expenses going on right now.

#361 7 months ago

Saw this one on FB. 24" monitor upgrade. OG cabs are 25" Looks really nice.

Yeah I think this big buck from arcade 1 up is pretty cool being you get the 4 games and if you willing to upgrade monitor there really are no limitations.
There is a video on you tube where it’s hooked up to a really big screen and looked great, I kind of like the look of going is big as you can within the cabinet and 20-22” is about the max.

Just going up to the 20” is substantially bigger and with the recommended distance for the senden light guns seems good.

Hopefully doing my swap later this week if all the parts come. I waiting to build the BBH until everything comes.

Your correct..big buck is good but not at 5k+

Edit - there is a riser extension someone is making and adds 4-6” I think and I believe is around $20. I will likely get this too as I think it should be close to eye level.

If you find that riser you mentioned that’s $20 could you post a link to it as I’d definitely be interested. The 20 inch screen looks nice as well I need to look at that a bit closer. Hope it goes well for you.

It’s on Amazon and Etsy as well and shipping and price vary depending on site.

There is a big buck mod video on YouTube where you can see it installed on the game.

Man, I'm about to pull the trigger on the BBH AIUP from Wal-Mart sight unseen, but man hard to find a 17" screen being doable and I don't want to spend money to mod it up to the 20". Do you just stand closer. Also, we are about to move and I would just have shipped to current house only to have movers bring to new house. Do these A1UP's stick around in stock. I tried to get an Aracade Legends around Christmas and they were never available.

Well, some do have a tendency to disappear at the good prices. Golden Tee is a good example.

Look at it this way, your getting 4 games with it for $449 so even if you pay a few bucks to increase screen size it’s still a good deal.

If you are about to move, I'd recommend buying it now but keeping it in the box until after you move. While these are light and easier to transport than your standard arcade game, you'll minimize the risk of damage if you keep it in the original packaging. I think it'll be a lot less stressful leaving it packed up.

Love seeing the pics of upgraded systems! I wasn’t considering a larger internal monitor for my BBH, but that larger external monitor looks much more appealing.

Yeah, that's what I'm going to do, but move day isn't until the 22nd. It's going to be hard.

You need the geekworm board to upsize monitor and make it hdmi compatible, order on amazon and you’ll have within a week.

Here is the 4” riser add on I bought as well.

Amazon is out of the board, but AliExpress has it, including the bundle with the cable for $30. I've never ordered from them, so I don't know what shipping would be. Newegg has what looks to be similar for almost $60 with shipping, but no cable. I'm going to wait until my move, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to do the upgrade as well. Anyone seen the weird Youtube video of the guy's wife showing off the monitor upgrade talking all sexy? It's called Kong's something.

He's using a Dell 20" 4:3 monitor. Yes it works with original hardware but you need a Geekworm HDMI adapter.

Where did you source the 4:3 20" Dell? I was looking on Dell website and don't see any 4:3 ratio monitors. Amazon has a Sceptre brand I've never heard of for $80. My search mainly takes me to Ebay. They are more than I expected.

Got mine on a Amazon for $130, could have done ebay for $98 but returns via Amazon are easier.

Look for a dell 2007fpb, picture quality is fantastic as it’s a high resolution monitor as well.

I’m really happy with how it all turned out.

I have had a lot of issues with the picture going in and out with HDTVs and the BBH game with the geekworm board. Seems fine during the hunts but the other screens not so much.

Is the dell 2007fpb so expensive just because of Arcade1Up? I can't justifty $130 for used old monitor, $124 for bezel and mount kit, and $40-60 for the board. We are at 75% of the cost of the Arcade1Up to begin with. Seems crazy.

I have 3 different HDTV's (none are 4k) and i can't get it to reliably work with any of them. Only appears on one of them. I might try another order or return this one.

The Kong's YouTube video said he had to try a few monitors before he could get his board to work. The Cool Stuff guy made it look like it would work on about any monitor. Ezeltmann, thanks for your updates because I have really been toying with the idea of going to a larger screen, but haven't pulled the trigger.

#395 7 months ago

I have a small spot left in my little game room and I am going to order the AFM arcade oneup version. It may not be perfect but, it will get some more of the classic titles in my small game room I keep watching Best Buy for preorder.

I initially had this happen but found my dvi adapter was loose, tightned the two posts as much as I could and no problem since.

Top left corner of screen would flash the dvi symbol indicating loss of video.

I think there is a video format switch on the board somewhere. Make sure it is on correct setting.

Has anyone figured out a good way to mix their Arcade1Ups with their real coin-op pins and arcade games? I like the size of these things, because I can cram more in the game room, but man, they looks like cheap knock-off toys next to my pins and arcade games, especially when I sit them next to the real things. Part of me is considering selling them and going with a less-is-more approach to my game room with just actual coin-op machines and maybe a MAME cab.

Then again, maybe it's the size that makes them looks like toys. I dunno. Would love to figure out a way for them to all live together without the 1Ups sticking out like a sore thumb.

In my own case I ended up getting rid of all the ones I had. They went to good homes for people who wanted to play the games and were not "collectors" or "hobbyists". The quality of the cabinets does not hold up. +1 for a MAME machine or get a laptop with MAME and hook it to a large screen with a tank stick. Lots of options. Good luck.

They look fine mixed in with pins scattered around my game room and my guests love playing them.
Have to decide, smaller dedicated machines and variety or full size clunky arcades that are a bitch to move around and take up valuable pinball real estate.
