In theory you should be able to reprogram any of the carts you have to roadwars instead.

You need to decrypt the image (in mame) and then re-encrypt for the security chip fitted to the cartridge you wish to use - they just do data line scrambling.

I still want Rockford, but no-one is admitting having a copy ...

Anyone know who bought the electro choice elite with 10 games on ebay last year? Can't remember all the games but Rockford wasn't one of them.

Macro: Thanks for the reply.
I remember reading about this. I do know that the boards all have varying quantities of chips on them, do you know if this would likely be an issue?

In all honesty, I'd rather get original boards where possible, but because most my Arcadia boards have hand written labels on the chips, I think they probably have been 'updated' or re-written at some point?

The labels are obviously very old though and I can't help but think that the way the arcade operator obtained a new game was to send an unpopular game back to the supplier and they simply wrote the new game over the old one on the board?

I did read somewhere that there was a discounted exchange problem in place and this sounds to me like a pretty cost effective method.

About Rockford: I always wondered if it was only ever a prototype?

At the same show, an early version of Roadwars was also shown which was near identical to the released Amiga version.

The version of RW in mame is imo a completely different game than the one on the Amiga.

Other Arcadia titles like Leaderboard, Aaargh! and Ninja Mission had changes and improvements made to their arcade versions over the Amiga versions but they weren't as diverse as Roadwars.

Damagestar: Can you remember by chance if Roadwars was one of them?
Is there a link still so I can have a look please? cheers.

I think it might have had road blasters yeah. Being a total electrocoin nerd I've probably got screenshots of it somewhere I'll have a look. I was planning on buying it and selling my elite as mine is missing the arcadia system but my phone messed up and I didn't place my bid in time. It went for around £350 I think. Bargain with 10 games Confused

That's very cool, and this cab seems set up pretty much exactly like mine.

Do you know when in 2017 it was sold by any chance?

Thanks again

Yeah I've found the listing for you. It only went for £290 with the 10 games! Absolute bargain, still kicking myself I messed up my bid. One sold a couple of years ago for more than that with no arcadia gear and had been ruined with a crap custom Street fighter cpo and extra holes drilled

Anyway here's the listing..

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arcade-Machine-/252891636425?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=Gx3No7QHv4oV20Lql2hDQtnDeek%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Thanks very much,

If only I could get in touch with the guy to see if he'd sell that Roadwars board...

It's possible he didn't even know what he was buying at first as the title is so generic (has to be the reason it went so cheap).

Looking at the going rate of the whole kit, I'd even be prepared to pay £200 + postage for just that board alone. Since it seems to be much harder to get collectors to part with a single board over the full kit...

Sadly it looks like my own boards seem to be from the basic cab factory set up as that's the 3rd time I've seen the same 10 game set as mine.

Hi, I grabbed this cab, it’s now fully working and will be making an appearance in Arcade Club
When the new floor opens, I am not interested in selling any of the games (sorry) :( )

Good to know. Just out of interest, did you first notice the auction for this when it was linked on the forums a few hours before it finished or was you already watching?

Just when it was linked.

The ebay listing was very vague.
I don't think the seller knew what he had there.
