Published on 01/02/2012 by in Neo Geo

After seeing some nifty videos on YouTube from johnsarcade.com with the games he had in his games room, I decided i’d quite like a Neo Geo system too.  The system is fairly straight forward, you get a motherboard – they come in 1, 2, 4 or 6 slot versions, they are JAMMA wired but use some

Arcade Barn Video Imminent

Been franticly trying to edit together all the footage from the JAMMA+ 8th Birthday party at Arcade Barn on 1st/2nd October but been having some major headaches with Final Cut Pro 10 – it keeps crashing. You zoom in, cut a piece, zoom out, click something else and the program freezes about 1 in 4

Arcade Personal Hi Score Update – Part 2

Managed to upgrade a couple of my live personal bests over the weekend, Managed to get 128,350 on Mr. Do! and 139,590 on Pac-Man.   The Pac-Man score certainly isn’t the world record, but it’s my personal best on an arcade machine in public.  It’s also one of the higher “non-stoodley” scores at the barn.

Following on from the outrun cab arriving, a bunch of work was done to make it usable which amongst a lot of different things, included wiring up the Ultimarc A-PAC board to the existing cabinet loom and squeezing a PC neatly into the back so it could easily be removed.  It had always been my
