Hi all,
Now stickied!
 
People always post their new cab aquisitions but this hobby is about more than full size machines; it's just as exciting for me to receive a PCB I've been after for a while or a part for a cab that I've had to import from the other side of the world. Let's face it, it's a really great feeling whenever the posty knocks with a box full of arcade goodness! I want to know what people get every day in the mail and share the hobby on a level more than just the cabs themselves...
 
I'll start!
 
"Today I received..."
 
 
 
 
Virtua Fighter 2!
 
Surely one of the greatest fighting games ever made? Big smile
 
Phil.

This week i recieved & erected a Hartley Vista greenhouse - not arcade related but well cool and somewhere to put my "scotch bonnet" chillies so I'll get a decent crop this year.
 
I've got some 100,000, 400,000 & 1,000,000 scolville ones to grow this year.
 
Arcade wise a box of 20 * replacement suicide batteries from Farnell arrived Wednesday.

lovely that. i always wanted to buy fighting vipers on the model 2, but put off by the stories that model 2 games break down easily and they are pretty bulky things.
Please don't sell me anymore stuff!
Games fixed: 001 (green beret) 002 (ikari warriors) 003 (victory road) 004 (sfz2) 005 (double dragon) 006 (final fight) 007 (sky shark) 008 (ninja turtles)

Cool. I've always wondered about this one - is it hard to find working or does it suicide or am I getting confused with something else?

Looks that way. Not sure what I can do about getting it de-suicided though.
