Hi everyone, bit late to the party, finally getting back in to the scene after a bit of a hiatus.

1. KellyNUTS
2. Geelong, Victoria
3. Cant offer anything decent atm besides a friendly, enthusiastic attitude. But I love to learn and plan on learning a LOT, once I do ill definitely be helping out others as much as I can.
4. Recommendations on a good Aussie based one stop(or almost)online shop to buy a lot of arcade parts as I am pretty much re-starting from scratch.
EG: pretty much need everything to build a countertop JAMMA setup to test my PCB's so I can sell a few of them and use that $$ to buy a MultiCPS2(or 2) from @djsheep :D
5. No website links... yet.

Welcome @KellyNUTS — nice to see some of the Twitter peeps on here recently.

I plan on having some Minigun’s for sale on the store shortly and some other bits that may help you on the quest. There are lots of others here that can also help out :)

Cheers bruv, yeah Twitter has been such a tease for me lately, been hanging to get back in to this hobby, probably not quite ready yet but been getting too antsy, and then when I stumbled on your website that was it, GAME OVER man, GAME OVER!! :D

Supergun sounds good, was tossing up between that and a countertop, but thought id go the countertop route first so I can learn/practice in the trade as I have 2 VS City's that need ground up rebuilds.... yeah probably bit off more than I could chew. :unsure:

There's some good builds from some locals here, check the logs from @mR_CaESaR for example.

Am not well versed on JAMMA capable countertop/tabletops. I'm sure someone will chime in with some info though! Keen to see more from you @KellyNUTS down the line...

I might have to send mine to him as well…

Finally received mine and it’s complaining about lack of RAM… got some more trying to do!

Clean the cart connector, try different SIMMS in the slot to check if it’s a bad SIMM or a slot issue

Also check for any corrosion around the CCU and PPU - slots 1 and 2 connected to the CCU, 3-6 to the PPU

Yep, I need to do that kind of testing on it this weekend…. By the time I finished testing the other 18 PCBs before I got to this one, found it had issues and called it a day! Haha

Ask yourself this - how often will you ever play a game outside of 3s? If you can say many times, then Ultra SIMMS would be for you.

For me, there's no way I'm playing anything else but 3s so I can't see myself buying the Ultra SIMMS anytime soon.

For me the benefit of the UltraSIMMs is unlocking all the other games “realistically”. Sure thing, with regular SIMMs there was no way I was reflashing another game to play for a bit and then go back to 3s at 45-50 minutes per flash. However — with UltraSIMMs it’s a simple process and it’s also part-reason why they exist.

I play both the JoJo’s games and 2nd Impact fairly often now and I don’t even use vanilla 3s anymore as I much prefer
the re:THIRD colour palettes. There’s also 4th Strike if you have a standard SH2 and other hacks incoming I believe.

I recently sold a full set of SIMMs and the CD Drive and it was a good 75% of the way there to cover retail costs of the UltraSIMMs. Food for thought, it’s 1 game vs 6 and a much tidier setup without the need of anything plugged into the SCSI port.

If you’re only going to play Third Strike, yeah no need. But if you want to unlock the small CPS-3 library and have colour hacks for 3s at your fingertips with instant loading, then it’s UltraSIMMs all the way.

I’ve never played and if the CPS3 games, so part of it is ease of use and time saved to try them all out!

I don’t have a favourite yet, so would need to try them to work that out.

I like the fact that it does away with some wiring (at the cost of some new wiring), so installation takes less space… and also “saves” buying a SCSI2SD.

Main thing holding me back is the DIP switches, I think if that guy on here gets a web interface setup going I’d be sold!
