Which one of you Aussies is a Taito X2 expert? @Murray ?

Anyone here I could send an SSD to that can hook me up with the latest multi? I’m on a Mac unfortunately, which renders tasks like this impossible for me.
I use balena (https://www.balena.io/etcher/) on Mac. Has worked with my X2/X3/RE multis ok. Though it isn't super quick.

Sing out if I can help though.

Hi lads I wanted to try peddling this here before I reached out.

Anyone here interested in a Naomi 1 with netboot setup? Comes with everything you need, including the raspberry pi, basically a drop in for any JVS cab. Also includes the capcom io for Jamma cabs but I have not used this one as I was running mine on a NNC.

Kind of bummed but I've tried oh so much to enjoy it and it just isn't doing it for me beyond Zero Gunner 2 and watching Karous to see if you could really 1CC without touching the controls, better off in a home that'll appreciate it.

Happy to let go for $750 shipped or trade + cash depending. I'm looking for a working Nanao 2930, a Super Kaneko Nova System motherboard and a yellow rental CPS2 a+b.

Thanks man. Etcher has been great for Naomi and other things on Mac SD card related.

Issue with the X2 image is after writing it gaining access to the NTFS file system / partitions on the Mac to write games.

That, and I don’t have a HDD / SSD dock handy.

Thanks @GumGum -- @nidulans had literally just recommended me the same thing on PM.

It's a pity I'm on an ANCIENT version of Mac OS that program doesn't support :/ -- I'm starting to feel the need to update my computer now. Discord is no longer working on this OS either...

Move on as in sell, or Move on as in buy?

Someone in Victoria should hop on this: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Street-Fighter-Zero-3-Genuine-Capcon-Freight-Available-/174931105003

Set a snipe. Could most likely get the board and cab cheaper than what the CPS-2 set would sell for.
In case anyone is interested... It was sold for $250 without a monitor but with an extra PCB (not sure what) about a month ago. Was upset to miss out on that... Now has a generic chassis from Jomac and I think a Toshiba tube. Pretty sure the guy is aiming for $1k+. He started at $2k...

Been following this because I am looking for a really cheap lowboy.

FYI, that button layout for playing 6 buttons games is fairly awful if that's what you intend to use it for. I got a custom control panel on one of my cabs that had that same flat across 6 button layout, you don't realise how not nice it is to play on it until you try.

Is there anywhere local to buy the 128mb mister ram board? Ones that aren't cheap and crappy?

I went to buy one from misteraddons and the shipping is almost as much as the ram chip itself.
