    Blast City Speaker Replacement

    These designs are amazing! Thanks for your hard work and for sharing nem! When re-fitting these back into the Blast cabinet is there any binding since these speakers are a few millimeters wider on either side? Do you have to force them back in place, or do they slide in easily?

    MS2930 Cracking sound in Sega Blast City

    If the neck of the tube has visible arcing/sparking and is making a cracking noise, it usually means the tube has been "necked" and lost vacuum. If the sound is coming from somewhere else it could be a voltage problem.

    MS2930 Cracking sound in Sega Blast City

    Is the sound from the monitor it's self? Or from the speakers? If you open the panel in the back, do you see any sparking or flashing in the neck of the tube?

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    Is great to hear that you were successful with a tube swap with one of these! I am holding on to one with the intention of doing a swap for a Blast City as well. Is the yolk compatible? Or did you do a yolk swap too?

    Console JAMMAizer! Easily connect home consoles to your JAMMA arcade cabinet.

    A Brook Universal fighting board will work with the 360 and plug right into the Jammaizer. You could also try the "stack" option mentioned earlier in this thread where you connect both the UFB and the Retro board. I haven't tried the stack yet myself, I hope to pick up another board to give it a...

    Question about 29" new Makvision arcade monitor, if it will work with New Astro City

    So, if you do some searching you will find the common consensus is that these monitors are just plain lousy. They have awful geometry and they look weird in a candy cab because of the gaps. I bought a Blast City with what I was told was a new Makvision 29 (3129D) in it. It lasted all of 2 months...

    Naomi setup for Capcom Impress and Old Astro City

    My Naomi doesn't play nice with my Astro City's MS8 monitor. The 480i 15hz is pretty flickery, I'm not sure if your situation will be the same (if your Astro has an MS8 in it.) It looks decent on an MS9 and other monitors though. But, it really shines on a 31hz 480p monitor.

    Axun Workshop - JAMMA Extractor (JAMMA Capture/Streaming Adapter)

    I noticed in your video the stereo sound cuts in and out on the right channel a bunch of times. The video starts with only the left channel and the right pops in at around the 0:41 mark, then it goes back out at 06:30. Was this an issue with the Extractor board, capture device, or cabling...

    Console JAMMAizer! Easily connect home consoles to your JAMMA arcade cabinet.

    I guess it is possible that one person bought all 10? It would be a real dick move, so I hope that isn't the case.

    No luck for me either. Never saw it in stock.

    Question about 29" new Makvision arcade monitor, if it will work with New Astro City

    Yeah, also it is a flat screen tube so there will be large gaps around the bezel where the curve of the original tube was. Most people have been very disappointed with this monitor, it has pretty bad geometry and they are known to be pretty unreliable, but it is the only type still available...

    Axun Workshop - JAMMA Extractor (JAMMA Capture/Streaming Adapter)

    Look at the 3rd and 4th photo at the bottom of the original post, or at the 5th post on the first page, there is a separate board he is offering.

    What are you doing to cure your sticky arcade steering wheels?

    This reminds me of some threads I had read on some Porsche forums, the models from 2005-2015ish have issues with the knobs on the dash/radio becoming sticky over time. Many people clean them with isopropyl alcohol but the stickiness returns shortly. Ive seen people paint them with plasti-dip or...

    Blast and Astro city projects

    Do you mind elaborating what the "heater resistor trick" is? I am troubleshooting a couple 2931 chassis, and this piqued my interest.

    PGM shmups in horizontal classic tv

    Fudoh had researched this a while ago http://yokotate.hazard-city.de/ as far as I know a cost effective low lag solution was never determined, most of the hardware he tested was made for commercial use in situations where lag was unimportant as XtraSmiley mentioned. I'd love a solution too, but...
