I just watch the video of the guy fixing the Punch out board. Looks pretty cool!! I wonder if I can ever learn to figure out how these boards work Huh?

I only know the basics on electronics from school. I understand how electricity works, For the biggest part I installed it myself in my last two houses. I also understand wiring controllers and cabs, but I don't have a lot experience in it.

Do you have any tips to start with? I'm really motivated learning to understand this.

well, I just saw the Eurocade event pictures, that's the one they told me about on J+

this is in one word AMAZING

I would really join this next time, but my MK2 cab is trapped upstairs so in order to bring it, I (again) need to take it apart.

I need a smaller cab before next time, so I can bring it and enjoy this

Thanks guys!!

Level42, I heard about some kind of event in Ridderkerk. Did you have anything to do with it? And is this a one timer?

To answer you other questions:

I like a lot of different games, I used to play Killer Instinct, MK2 and UMK3 in the arcades in my teenage years. On the console I have a soft spot for FF7, but I also like platform games like the Mario and Sonic games (and Alex Kidd in Miracle World!!)

As a kid I played all kind off arcade games, my father had a MSX and Philips Videopac so I played on it a lot. The systems I had/ have  myself are: Sega Master system, SNES, N64 , PS1, 2 and 3. My friends had C64, Atari (?), NES, Amiga, Megadrive, etc

I played on most of the systems around, but allmost never on XBOX.

I don't like shooters like CoD and MW and flight sims, but I have fun with most other games

Thanks for the welkom

I'm sorry, I live in the Rotterdam area Grin not in the eastern part of our country.

About the Jamma cab: a simple wooden would be fine for now, as long as is has a vertical screen in it to play some of my favourit classics.

You like pictures, here is one my cab (needs some new T molding) and the artwork in my game room.



It's not me in the picture btw



I joined the Nozomi forum also and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna join their club

Hello, my name is Patrick and ever since I bought a MK2 cab earlier this year and moved into a new home with more space, I've got the arcade fever. I am fooling around with MAME for some time, but the real thing is much more fun.

I recently joined the Jamma+ forum and they told me about this one, because it has a lot of Dutch members.

As a newbie, I 've got some goals and some dreams for this hobby, the 1st thing are:
 
- get a Jamma cab
- get myselfs a collection of PCBs to play in this cab
- learn how to solder things like fingerboards so I can play non Jamma boards in it

I dream about having my very own Donkey Kong cab one day and about repairing boards myself. I dream about a lot of stuff, and that's a good thing.... I like to dream

Unfortunately, I don't have unlimted cash for my hobby..... but I really look forward to get involved in the Arcade scene and this community.

Greetings from Holland  Smiley

Patrick
