They are know for gouging on the shipping charges alright and will be probably with a courier so import tax is very likely.

Yeah I left it. It was with DHL so you're definitely getting stung for import tax. Between that and the deliver charge, it takes a $189.99 console up past $300.

You may have? I remember a guy on Adverts getting a savage deal for some Street Fighter pcb's from me coz I couldn't sell them. The scene was quite a bit smaller back then, must have been, 8 years ago according to Adverts

That might have been me? I bought everything in the first two links anyway

Still actually have everything from the first link - The SF2 with the garbled sprites had a dodgy B board, but the A board was working grand. I bought a Mercs B board and mounted it on it, it now resides in my Pony

SF2 CE is in my attic, awaiting me (eventually!) getting another two player 6 button cabinet. It had a brief stint in my Aero before I sold it.

That Tekken 3 Board is also in my attic, still mint looking and still does absolutely nothing.

Fairly sure I sold the CPS2 boards in the second link to someone here, might have been Mozie?

See Ronnie is selling an Aero Table?

1795 euro. It's a lot of cash but not bad compared to what I've seen them going for (looks to be in good condition too with a speaker pod)

Cleaned out out the SNK cab last night and moved the wooden PCB mounting board so it's now vertical. Should allow me to put a load more boards in at once. (I've a CPS2 board with a 1 slot MVS now sitting on the base)

I'm going to pop up into the attic later and have a root through games. Going to see if I can mount 3 - 4 PCBs on the vertical board, one over another using spacers. It's actually a bit of fun trying to figure out how to best choose/arrange them as you've to do it according to board size/shape.

Sorted through and tested a rake of PCBs this evening. Actually thought I'd found a couple of missing PCBs (Dinorex and Rastan) but they turned out to be Football Champ and a Nebulas Ray with some graphical glitches, boo!

I did find a Metal Black board I'd completely forgotten I had, so that was fun, gave it a bit of a blast.

Couple of issues though, my Turtles PCB had a loose capacitor floating around the box and my Raystorm seems to be dead

Anyway, onto the positive stuff. I decided to settle on an STV mobo and Vendetta as the two PCBs I was going to mount.

Vendetta goes on first...



Then the ST-V on some PCB spacers. Went with Die Hard Arcade for the moment (what a game!) but will probably lash Souky in there during the week,



Unfortunately the side mounting solution was a no go, so I'd to put the wooden board back where it was. Did come up with a solution though, I'd a rubberised shoe rack (!) that wasn't doing anything and is coincidentally exactly the same width as the cab. So that's after acting as a shelf!


There's a bit of space there between the shelf and the STV board, so I may get some more spacers and lash another board in.
