+1 for Ronnie. I got two (out of three) of my Sega candy cabinets from him, an Astro City (same as Bruno) and a Blast City.
And now that I am seeing this thread and pics, It itches to get yet another one from him Smiley.
Nothing beats the look of a Sega Astro Cabinet, except a ROW of Astro Cities.

For me it's a 2,5 hour drive to Apeldoorn btw.

I guess one will be enough. But I agree two will be perfect to cover both setup (horizontal and 'tate' mode).
I've no experience in 'modern' vertical shooters, except Ikaruga and Under Defeat on Dreamcast. Any suggestion about a nice one to try/play?

it's harder to find good modern vertical shooters.    Ikaruga  is "Tate" display.  


for vertical display & gaming !,   Progear &  Akai katana   are Cave choices by excellence.    Rtype2, Rtype leo, Rtype  are the great classics.

loads more choices in "Tate" display...     Dodonpachi,  Ketsui, Batrider, Battle garegga, Ibara, 19XX, 1941,  etccccccc

Does the Xbox360 (or even XBox) has games that can be set in 'tate' (vertical) mode by the way?

All of Cave's Xbox360 releases have that option.
And you can make or buy an adapter to connect your Xbox360 to your Astro City.
Will need some padhacks too, but then you have a nice setup going.

Labels, stickers & serial ...





Now regarding the monitor ...

That is an easy one. I noticed you have the Nanao MS8 chassis (of course, Astro city's are standard equipped with them, a great chassis, just like the MS9 in the New Astro's). On the last picture you see two connectors side by side, and a plug (with yellow, orange, red, brown wiring) in one of them. Just put the plug in the other, free connector and you are good to go. Oh, and your image is nor mirrored, it is flipped.

By the way, i'm sure that you are aware of the Arcadeotaku forum, lots and lots of information about all kind of Candy stuff.  Cheesy

Your cab looks great and the chassis is very clean. A really good purchase you made!  Cheesy  Are you planning to get a marqueeholder with marquee for it? if so, you can buy them newly made through Arcadeotaku forum. I did a few times, great quality.

The 360 tate games are great, I imported most of them from Hong Kong and some of them are XBLA games. Unfortunately they don't get enough playtime, but I will soon be able to play them in my Blast city in 31Khz (640 x 480). That will be fun!  Smiley

Some more info for you Bruno:

- any good automotive polish or even mr clean magic eraser will do a good job cleaning up that white
- consider replacing the coin insert slot. They typically yellow like that.  For a few bucks you can get white NOS or chrome!
- I would look into a replacement CP or punch holes for remaining buttons to make it 6 per player for maximum flexibility.  But if you go that route, you'll also need to get more kick harness wire under the cp.

+1

And you might consider this monitor treatment:

Donīt know if it is necessary for your monitor, but I never regretted doing it and I will soon give my other NAC the same treatment.

and everybody's reaction is the same, at first they complain about the game being to hectic/hard, but after playing for a while and understandig the mechanics, they all (even my girlfriend) think it's great..   Cheesy

Again your girlfriend!  Cheesy I'm really getting jealous now.  Cheesy My wife only loves one game, and just a little bit, which is Tetris. We once played it on a cab together, against each other of course, and I let her win (OK, she beated the crap out of me) just in the hope that she would catch the arcade lifestyle vibes. Unfortunately she didn't.  Cry Undecided Embarrassed
