Quoted from cocomonkeh:

Dragons lair comes out on every new platform. The last one I saw just a regular blu ray.

I rented that one when it came out. Plays with your remote control, surprisingly fun and captures the essence of the original game. Neat!

PS - The phone/tablet version that came out was pretty good too. Never noticed it looking bad due to not being on a CRT .. now I'm curious what the CRTs were hiding ..

If it was cel animation they probably did a high def transfer at some point.

Can’t find these A1U on clearance anymore. Found a Street Fighter locally on CL for $150 and was thinking about getting this and modding it with the raspberry pi thingy. Worth it or not?

Whats the typical cost to upgrade to a raspberry pi set up?

100-200

Depending on the grade of hardware and such

#2906 3 days ago

I get all the hardware that needs to purchased and installed, it’s the ROMS that you need to download on a SD card that I don’t understand how to do.

Just go searching for an all inclusive image, I think you’ll find several that are ready to go with everything included (usually in a link on a YouTube video of a guy showing off his work)

Sounds about right for my Amazon shopping list.

For double the cost you can pay someone local or on Etsy to pretty much do everything for you. (Including drilling extra holes).

#2909 3 days ago

Did my SF for $300. $150 for the 1up and $150 for the parts.

#2910 3 days ago

I don’t like the raspberry pi solution. 1) I didn’t want to drill more holes in the cabinet. 2) I didn’t want over saturation of games. 3) I only wanted arcade games (I have other systems for those games), and 4) I wanted a plug and play option, no computer setup. No learning curve.

I decided on the Pandora’s box 5 home edition. You only need a controller for the lcd screen. The A1up power switch can turn it off and on. It can be put on free play, don’t need coin buttons, and a long press of player 1 start brings up a menu to exit the game. No need for exit buttons. The Pandora’s box has over 2000 games, I trimmed the list down to the best 30 fighting games (it’s in a sf2 cab).

The arcade1up power supply works for the Pandora’s box. You can get a second power supply for the monitor, or buy a 12v 6A power and run both off of the same power supply.

Arcadepunks.com for images.

Search out the ETA Prime channel on YT. He has all kinds of tutorials. A lot of people upgrade their monitors to 19" Dell PC monitors. If you do that, you don't need the LCD conversion board, as the monitor will already have compatible outputs (you'll need a DVI or VGA to HDMI cord though). Wish I knew this from the start!

#2912 3 days ago

I’m strongly considering buying and converting a turtles instead of my street fighter. Figure family can play together without arguing over whose turn it is.

Thoughts?

#2913 3 days ago

So how difficult is setting up a raspberry pi with arcade controls and just a handful of games like all the 4 player Konami games? Is there a wire harness kit to simplify everything?

Basically you need to plug all of your buttons and joystick into the USB converter board, then that goes into the pi
amazon.com link »

The pi has 4 USB ports so you should be ok there

Lots of people buy these kits because it's all in one, but you can buy the boards, buttons, sticks separate if you want to use better grade components.

There's a tutorial done by ETA prime on adding a pi to your A1U. It's very easy. I would highly suggest watching that.

I suggest you take your family to Walmart and test out the size of the tiny control panel, you’ll all be elbowing each other for space

That is a good point...but kids are young still and we are small people...

I agree that 4 players would be really tight. I play with my kids (4 and 6) on the SF cab and i'm bumping elbows. I've played with my wife and it gets cozy. I can't imagine 4 adults around a TMNT cab, unless you built a larger control panel to create more space, or you're really comfortable with them.

That depends if Bluth Studios still had an original 35mm print to make it from. Otherwise, it's still only 400 line interlaced video resolution that's been upscaled.

It was remastered for the bluray release a while back and most agree it looks great. Much better than the original laserdisc.

But what was the source for the Remaster?

There are all sorts of kits available on etsy. When I hade mine I bought a kit installed off someone on facebook marketplace. Totally worth it.

I sold mine last month when I got a full sized multicade, but here is my old ad with a video explanation and some commentary in the discussion thread.

The only reason we are selling this is because we liked it so much we decided to get a full sized PC based machine.“

I couldn’t recommend this more

Don't know for sure, I would assume the original 35mm negative made off of the original cels.

I've been a movie collector from CED and laserdisc days and the dragons lair triolgy HD blurays look way better than laserdiscs ever did. Wonder if they would ever do a 4k scan?

Does it say it's 1080p or 1080i?
