NAMCO Classic Collection Vol.1

Finally found one of these! I tried Galaga Arrange once in MAME and I just had to have it! Feels like way too long ago I picked up a new PCB.

SUZO 500 Rubber edition

I was browsing eBay and found a SUZO 500 that had gray plastic at the base instead of the red I normally find in arcade parts stores online. I know that joystick guru Kowal has mentioned that there used to exist an older revision of these sticks that had a rubber grommet doing all the …

New arrivals in the Vertical PCB section

I traded my Metal Slug 3 and Metal Slug 4 MVS carts with a great guy in the UK and now I have Rush & Crash and Super Space Invaders ’91! Both games are titles I grew up playing and I’ve always wanted these in my collection.

I got me some SPARK!

Today I received a the latest offering from modern time alchemist, Toodles. Behold THE SPARK. This little piece of high-tech will turn your SANWA JLF into the equivalent of SANWA’s long gone epic FLASH 1 optical joystick.

More SUZO 500 modding

Fans of the SUZO 500 stick might have noticed that the shaft doesn’t center properly due to the pivot being a couple of mm’s short of filling the hole in the base.

Updated 2010-05-02 (added a picture of the screw, extender and washer I use) Most EGRET II owners (or any Japanese cabinet owners) swear by their SANWA or Seimitsu sticks (I used to do that as well), but then I read someone @ the shmups forums write how awesome the SUZO 500 is for shmups, because …

Easy EGRET II speaker upgrade

EASY EGRET II SPEAKER UPGRADE How to put a 2.1 speaker system into an EGRET II with or without intrusive measures. Very easy to do as long as you know how to do it and what you’ll need.

Took a few more pictures of my Dreamcast running through the SLG3000 on my Acer LCD screen: Also a pretty large picture of Mars Matrix. Click here to view it. Also tweaked the settings on the SLG3000 to give me a better result on my NANAO 24kHz display (I had the dips set to even …

Today I got my hands on something that’s very cool. The SLG3000. It’s a tiny dedicated unit that produces scanlines for game consoles or emulator setups where you don’t have a scanline option in the video settings, or when you don’t want to put extra processing strain on your emulator setup. It will accept VGA …
