Just ordered 2, so well see if you're correct. Blaming you if they dont work.

Cool. Can't wait for the report! At least I'm oly on the hook for a few bucks.

cool .. how did you like it (or not )?

Quoted from ezeltmann:

It reminded me of streets of rage. The joystick and buttons felt cheap (normal for arcade 1up) but I liked the game as I love SoR. I think they had it in the karate champ cab. So I hope it gets a different cab/theme.

Anyone know when they intend on releasing the cocktail cabs? Very interested in more details on those as I would actually buy one.

Anyone hear anything regarding a release date for the risers with matching art? I like the one for Pacman that was in the CES pics.

Easy now. There's nothing wrong with that, the comment was for Ellen Page. Ellen Page is not a single mom, she is a great actor whom happens to be a lesbian and married.

There's nothing to get upset about here.

Relax dude, its a joke.... I'm a guy....just remembered a Axl Rose t shirt with the
" Nobody knows I'm a lesbian" print on it....

#2118 30 days ago

Yeah, it's totally relevant to the conversation because everybody knows lesbians can't get pregnant. Duh!

#2119 30 days ago

Congratulations to you and your partner!

In the States, it's only been legal for 3 years, so it's still a big deal that we get excited about.

Well considering they are both Canucks and its been legal here for 14 years. I just thought it was a cool picture, I did wonder if posting it here was a good idea, this place can be weird.

These won the tech toy of the year. I hope they’re easier to find in Canada in 2019. I’d be interested in a 12 in 1 cab, but there not available here.

#2123 28 days ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

I got interested in those volcano switches (--nostalgia--) and poked around a bit.
There are different ones. Some are tall and some are short. Some are black and some are aluminum. Some are illuminated and some are not. Mostly they were for Start buttons (usually illuminated I believe) but also sometimes for Fire buttons (Missile Command).
This thread has some information. http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=11123.0
Someone posted this drawing of the tall cone.
[quoted image]
Looking at those dimensions, I still think this Parts Express lighted switch might work. It is labeled as 1/4 inch for the button and 0.366" for the mounting hole which looks like it will fit.
https://www.parts-express.com/spst-snap-in-mount-push-button-no-momentary-125vac-1a-switch-with-2vdc-red-led--060-665
I might try that for my arcade panel, if I ever get around to building it. These things are cooler than the typical standard arcade pushbutton switch that is used everywhere.

These red light buttons don't work. I couldn't figure out a way to get them inside of the a functioning button with the Volcano base. There was at least no way to secure it in a proper way. Glue I suppose. But I was hopping to merge the lit button with the Lowes one so that I could screw it in. Couldn't figure out a way to do it. So right now I have the base with the black Lowes switch. It works at least.

Finished converting my SFII into a Raspberry Pi MAME. Things worked out good enough, but ran into some snags along the way.

Even though this is a cheap toy, I figured I'd put quality products in it, and make it as much of real arcade cabinet as I could.

I replaced the panel just underneith the control deck with a speaker grill panel. The problem I ran into was that the buttons hit the speaker. So I had to drill new holes and mount the speakers about an inch lower to make sure there was enough clearance.

The other thing, I had a heck of time drilling the holes for the protective overlay. I couldn't find a bore bit with fine teeth. So there's a few cracks and scrapes in the overlay. But that's ok. It still protects the artwork and it just wasn't worth buying a whole nother sheet of it. But if I had to do it again, I'd drill the holes first, make sure the buttons all fit, THEN drill holes for the screws while the buttons are in place, THEN trim the overlay to size.

For whatever reason, when the buttons were mounted, the overlay rotated about 1/4 inch. So I had to trim the edges and modify some holes.

I also installed official HAPP buttons and Sanwa joysticks. The price difference wasn't that bad, so figured, what the hell. And honestly, the buttons have a spring vibration sound when tapped. And the joystick is really loud with it's clicking.

I played an official Final Fight last night at our local Arcade bar, and loved how that joystick felt. Wish I knew what it was.

But it turned out good. Just figured I'd pass along some of my notes of my build. Maybe it will help someone else who's considering the same thing.

Now I just need to figure out how to make the powering on and off as dummy proof and simple as possible. May use the Gameboy Zero idea of powering it off. Add a battery pack to the Raspberry Pi, and connect everything to one switch.

Thanks for posting. Do you have a link to a website that walks you through the process? Also, can you share how much it cost to do the conversion?

Thank you.

I played a few of these at Fry’s today. They’re worse than I imagined! The sound lag is so obvious, that’s a deal breaker right there. Playing Joust was really disorienting with the flaps & other sounds being about a second late from the action. Same with Centipede. Ooophhh. Horrible emulation.

I haven’t notice that at all. I wonder if it needs a periodic reboot? Bummer you had a bad experience.

Quoted from paynemic:

Some people don’t notice lag in bad emulation. I’m very aware of it. NES Classic has some audio lag, too. It was way worse on these games, though.

#2130 26 days ago

Yes there is going to be audio lag. The ability to reduce audio lag to near PCB levels using portaudio wasn't introduced into mainline mame until 0.182. anything before that which wasn't compiled specifically with audio lag reduction in mind will experience the lag.

#2131 26 days ago

This thread got me thinking. There is a single mom I know and she was OBSESSED with Galaga.

I wonder if she bought one of these...

Only good for 17 inch monitor and cabinet. Use for MAME or Arcade SD. New controls. A good buy to get a ready to go Cabaret.

A1U advertises in Overwhelmed and NAASM magazines (National Association for the Advancement of Single Mothers) so I'm sure she is well aware.

It would actually say "Find some dude to shack up with me to help pay for the mortgage of the house I won in the divorce"

But, in many (most?) states, if you are caught with a non-family member male living in the house, she loses all her free school breakfast/lunches, child food assistance "food stamps", free after school activities "babysitting till 6pm".

You can always tell when men write the laws, lol.

Unfortunately this is common in CA. The father on the birth certificate is "unknown". You left out the general welfare checks.

#2139 25 days ago

Damn. Bought another one today. So after selling my Pacman and Galaga and making a tiny profit, I saw they were back on sale again for $100. So I just picked up Galaga this time. Since I've converted SFII, I'm going to do the same thing for Galaga, but only make it for vertical screen games.

These things are so fun and cute. And now I have 2, which fit perfectly in my space.

#2140 25 days ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

I know, there was a just a TV special about that.

Even with all the DNA testing nowadays, in the US, 2% of all children have "Father Unknown".

Quoted from xsvtoys:

Our state got rid of General Welfare decades ago.

If you don't have dependent children, you get nothing.

The max with a single mom and 3 children is $900 - that would not pay even for the cheapest apartment around here, lol

Right, something like that, plus add in about $600 or so for the SNAP, and free Medicaid. Rent is less of an issue because 3 to 4 (or even more) families live in a place that is designed for 1 family. Add in some phantom money from ghost dad and under the table work and you're good to go.

EDIT - do you remember what network that show was on or what it was called? I would like to watch that one.

It was around Father's day, a broad finds out (23 & Me) that her father knocked up a Vietnam chick and now she has a 1/2 sister, 1/2 way around the world in the same episode.

#2147 25 days ago

Target has Streetfighter2 at most locations for either $174 or $104 depending on your neighborhood

https://brickseek.com/target-inventory-checker/?sku=207-17-0042

Looks like most of the $104 stores have less than 15 in stock, so if your Target store is 24-hour, you better not wait until morning......

I saw this too as a rerun. Followed by a special on the Golden State Killer... "Hey, I mailed in my spit, and now I have a half sister in Vietnam and... dad's a serial rapist from the 70's."

Apparently the SF2 one has a missing sound channel.
