A perfect day for a road trip, damn cold and a lot of rain, where is the summer????

All most at the secret place, some heavy machinery!!!

hehe, teasing is over!
This has to be one of the most amazing "bulk" buys i have ever done!.... not only one "must have game" but 2...!!!!!!

Here´s my friend øster, after the 2 ladies has been brought into The Shed.
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo2.jpg)

Well, here she is, or the CP:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice6.jpg)

This cab is in better shape than the PU, and i´m sure they will look great next to each other!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice2.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice3.jpg)

As it shows, this is a conversion, but i give a f***  :D
I have ordered repro stickers, so it will look nice again!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice1.jpg)

From the back:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice7.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice8.jpg)

There was a full PC10 PCB in it, not bad games at all!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice10.jpg)

S10=Excitbike
S9=Golf
S8=Double Dragon
S7=Pro Wrestling
S6=1942
S5=Super Mario Bros.
S4=The Goonies
S3=Contra
S2=TMNT
S1=Gradius

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice13.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice14.jpg)

When i pulled the coin box out there was a blind passenger... hmmm  :)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice4.jpg)

Macro for Level42  ;)
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/playchoice5.jpg)

As excited i was when he let go of this, the more excited i got when he offered me this!!! WOW!!!
The one in the back.... still with all her clothes on... almost  ;D
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo1.jpg)

Me, very excited!!!! A genuine Red Cab NEO GEO......  :D :D :D :D :D :D
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo3.jpg)

The games inside:

Her serial number:

From the back (duh!)  ;)
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo6.jpg)

Right side:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo7.jpg)

front, definitely a big A in shape!
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo8.jpg)

The CP is in great condition.
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/neogeo10.jpg)

So, the conclution is that nothing is impossible, everything can be found in EU (all most  :))
Now! - i need stepdown converters!!!!!!!

Denmark - Germany - Denmark
450 KM driven - This roadtrip is over!

hehe...

(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/news/punchout.jpg)

this is not the Punch Out, but the Play Choice 10....  ;)

congrats on that score, michael, especially because they are at the top of your list. while those aren't cabinets i would have liked to have (we'll, i would have taken that playchoice 10 to convert it back to punchout and i didn't even know what a neo-geo was), i'm happy for you that you got them. your shed must be pretty full right now with all those new games coming in.

you need to think of an expansion!

Post by: DarthNuno on May 08, 2010, 06:25:20 PM
Ops!  :oops: I've missed something then...
I thought you planned to revert the ''Choice' into the Punch Out original cab?


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!
Post by: Muerto on May 08, 2010, 08:00:57 PM
hehe, I have 2 Nintendo cabs, a Punch Out and a Play choice 10  ;)

I'm too old for these I guess.

But I'd love to play SMB on a cab ;) And Metal Slug rocks :)

Well if I see this line up of multi's you might want to add this to that line:

There was a arcade cab like that on ebay.co.uk a while ago, but it ain´t on my wish list.. (i don´t like the look of it..)

Heeeelp!

I discovered the you could use both 110V and 220V
So, i made a 220V plug and turned it on, and there was a flash (blown fuse)
well, discovered a switch i should have moved to 220V
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/psu5.jpg)

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/psu4.jpg)

So i did, changed the blown fuse (the one in there was a 250V 3A, the closest i got was a 250V 3.15A - hope that will do????) pluged in the power, and.... nothing..... hmmm
Then there´s this one, is it an automatic fuse of some sort? and can i change it?:

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/psu2.jpg)

the one in the red circle...

Post by: Etienne MacGyver on May 14, 2010, 05:52:38 PM
i hope for you that the fuse did its job, otherwise , there could be something else blown out as wel..... :-\


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!
Post by: Muerto on May 14, 2010, 06:32:56 PM
yep, i know, though, when i fed it 110V the first time, the game powered up, but not the monitor, so i aint that worried.... yet!!!


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!
Post by: Muerto on June 17, 2010, 08:01:43 PM
Bought a 220 to 110v trafo the other day, and hooked my PC10 up, and it runs great!
-only thing missing is the floresent tube... andré, maby you know where to buy?

Post by: Level42 on June 17, 2010, 08:59:30 PM
Nintendo tube ?? The 100V one's ? Forget it.....almost impossible to find....

I had to convert to a Euro TL set too....


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!
Post by: Level42 on June 17, 2010, 09:08:39 PM
Well......maybe......can you give me as much details about the tube as you can ?


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!
Post by: Laschek on June 18, 2010, 09:17:47 AM
Is this a special lamp? AFAIK those flourescent tubes in general can be used for 110 and 240 Volts, there's no difference like in normal bulbs.
Or am I missing something?  ??? ;)


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] My Choice to play Neo Geo!

Finally, received the new trafo for my NEO GEO a couple of days ago, and damn those games are addictive!!!!
Games in it ATM:
