Quoted from NightTrain:
Hey guys. Got a couple questions on these things and don't really have time to read through 54 pages.
I'm looking at getting one of these for the house. I've had regular arcade games before but got rid of them. I'd like to pick up the new TMNT Arcade 1up machine that is coming out. How is the size on these? I'm 6'4" - will I be able to play with the riser? Can you swap in a multigame JAMMA card with these to add more games?
I am 6'4" and have a modified Arcade 1up. It is 100% not comfortable to play this machine standing up, even with a riser. However, it's just fine sitting down and the perfect size for my 5 and 8 year old.
You cannot just swap out the cards and change games, but these games are a great shell to modify. I bought an Asteroids and had someone off of Facebook throw in a Rasberry pi, Street Fighter 2 Joystick layout, front art stickers, and a small sound system. All in I'm at ~$650 (you could do it much cheaper yourself). I have over 18,000 games on mine. It has every arcade game up to 1994 or 1995, along with a crap ton of old systems like SNES, NES, C64, Atari, ZXSpectrum... lots of stuff. The menu system is kind of a pain but you can create a favorites list that cuts down on it. My 8 year old can pick out games on his own but my 5 year old needs help. Right now the most played game in my arcade by my kids is this unit, and is somehow MLB Baseball Advance on the Gameboy advance from 2001 or so. 18,000 games and 3 pins and somehow that is the winner.
In any case. Good luck!20190923_192508 (resized).jpg3a286ff1556a48ecc400aacb37062bd6f67482b4 (resized).jpg
