    Hello from SoCal. Diving back in, after a long absence :)

    @fatherpain Thanks for hosting such a fantastic meetup. It was great catching up with friends after such a long time, and meeting some new people as well. Can't believe you added a Commando to your lineup, as if the arcade needed to get any more awesome. Pretty pumped that just as we are...

    Hello from SoCal. Diving back in, after a long absence :)

    Thanks to @fatherpain I discovered several games I knew the names of but never got a chance to really enjoy. Anytime I would find the game in the wild it would be either a busted ass cab or emulated. His cabs are all pristine examples of how the games were intended to be played. Really glad to...

    New CRT monitor purchases as of May 2021 - Do you know any good sites?

    Oh right, if you already have a NNC with a monitor, then you got the chassis part solved. The DY you could reuse, but I had had pretty bad luck getting the stock NNC DY to work with other tubes. (A68LZU185X) - I must have tried it on 3 different 29" tubes and could always get close but the...

    New CRT monitor purchases as of May 2021 - Do you know any good sites?

    If you want a really high quality replacement monitor for the NNC you have to build one up yourself. Its a process of hunting down a PFX or Toshiba chassis while at the same time doing your tube homework. There are several flat 29" tube #s that will work for the NNC, each of those tubes #'s will...

    Today I worked on lots o’ cabs!

    Those Ice Cold Beer cabs are super interesting. I had never seen that playfield or side-art before. So much better than the plain yellow beer mug playfield. Glad you were able to save those gems, I am sure you will get them looking great.

    It looks like in this video they are already using the OSSC to draw the boarder. Then its some conga line of RasberryPi and Arduino to get the Light Gun into the PS2 input.

    Toshiba Pure Flat D29C051 Questions

    When I got my NNC that part was also broken loose and was missing. Good thing I cleaned the cab before using it because I found that part just sitting loose on the monitor chassis. Give the monitor chassis a close inspection, you may get lucky and find it like I did. I think it does have some...

    Positive feedback for quadratic

    I bought an E3 IL panel off @quadratic - great communication, fast shipping, really reasonable price on a super rare item. The IL panel was double boxed and wrapped in foam, very well protected and arrived in perfect shape.
