Hey @hyp36rmax I sold mine a long time ago now. For me, there’s no need for individual carts when Netbooting exists, but I’ll keep my eyes out for you my dude. Be patient though, it’ll turn up.

If you’re not concerned with condition and need one quick, surely Yaton (@LinkArcade ?) or LegendHK have one.

ok cool so you know what you got, the repair is probably going to run you around $150, I think maybe more maybe less so the total cost will be around $450 to $500 after all the taxes and shipping charges. and you save a unit so that's super cool. I hope you get many years of service out of it and gratz. I recommend using the Netbooting to play the games, and the real stuff for collecting, I having my MVC2 cart frame and going to put it up on the wall. Hell another one just pop up for $500 U.S. on ebay and I think is going to sell

Yea. Ken got back to me mentioned it could be a bad buffer or corrosion which is easily fixed. At the worst it could be a bad rom which is problematic altogether. Since it works hoping it’s the easy fix.

I saw that new one pop up the other day. Seems local to me. If only that price wasn’t so high.

That's not a sold listing. You're allowed to list whatever you want for whatever price you want both here and on ebay. Just because that's what they're listing it for, doesn't mean that's what people are buying them for:

They probably looked at the most recently sold listing and based it off of that exact number. The number of carts that have sold for >$300 outnumbers the ones that sold for $500+. The number of sold listings is not that long- it takes (quite literally) one extra click of research to be an informed buyer in this scenario. If someone DOES buy that for $500, then:

With arcade stuff, there's usually a HUGE difference in the prices of what's sold and what's listed waiting for idiots with more money than brains.

And the solution:

I hope is an easy fix and that ken can take care of it for you, im sure some of the data is gone from that bad rom, but if it works is probably some of the unlockable characters
so the game will still run fine. sounds like you are like me and just want two of everything lol best regards and gratz on your purchase

This was a nice cart with arts, but still, it's also a recent sale.
It's just one more reason that netbooting is appealing. Pretty much the whole library for the cost of a netdimm, an ethernet cable, raspberry pi 4 and a 16gb microsd card. And i don't have to put in the damned character unlocks every time i don't turn the cab on for a week. Legenhk still has reasonably priced netdimms for sale all the time. $168usd plus ship.

I guess the downside is that you need to load the game from your phone each time you run it, so if you want your cab to turn on to the game automatically then netboot can fall short. But with the costs of some of the games... it's certainly a more cost effective solution! Netbooting has a bit of a bad rap from the years of tedious configuration, but that's not an issue anymore. The entire software side of it is all done now... you don't need to configure anything. Just download the iso, write it to a 16gb card and shove it in the pi and you have pretty much the entire naomi library already setup and ready for you. You don't even need the lcd screen anymore, you just control it all from your cell phone.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 is a badass game... every time i've drifted in and out of arcade hoarding over the years (3 or 4 times) i always end up with another copy!

I did win this from YAJ. It was sold as “Junk” since the seller didn’t know how to use it. Comes with Art and a JVS. We’ll find out soon.

I saw that one, i went back to look for the link to post it here and couldn't find it.

I bet it all works, nice score! I've seen those io boards sell for that alone!

There's another sold listing literally directly under that one, only four days apart, that sold for $300. Had a bad rom check or something that the seller was very transparent about, but they also posted a video along with the listing showing it playing just fine.

Every time a game changes hands doesn't mean a new market price is set. Again, yeah it sucks someone paid $500 for a cart, but it literally would have taken one additional click of due diligence to filter the sold listings and see what the majority of them are selling for. If that's what they wanna pay, then good on them, but based on what they typically sell for, they overpaid.

congratulations woot woot

Excited for sure! It was filthy with game center smoke and dust *surprise!* haha. I've taken the motherboard, cart, and chassis apart to clean. Next project is to clean up the SEGA JVS JAMMA box, wiring is typical ghetto with twisted wiring and tape. Plan to give it a proper solder, heat shrink and paracord. touch up just cause. Overall happy, can't wait to dive in this weekend woot!! <3

I’ve got even more great news! You guys remember that Ebay MVC2 with the bad IC28 Rom? Well….

That tested GOOD! Lol. Ran through the test several times just to be sure.
