    Congrats on the new machine and games (especially Metal Slug 3 - it's a classic). Is there a 6-slot board inside, too?
    Wanted MVS carts:

    Alpha Mission 2, Real Bout Fatal Fury, Sengoku 2

    Just a 4 slot which is good enough. Might get a 6 in the future

    It would return the cabinet to its original state, but I've heard that 6-slot boards have more compatibility issues. You're probably better off with a 4-slot.

    Nice cab there! I've never seen one like this in Australia ... yet!

    I'd personally avoid the 6 slot board though, can be problematic.



    For the tunes chat crew!

    And probably won't. It's an Electrocoin.
    Made specificly to the UK market, licensed by SNK.

    1up has one too, but it still retains the original painel paintings.

    For stand up cabs, you are pretty well spot on in Spain.
    A lot of lovely Covielsa cabs and Green Gold's were made there. Some are pretty nice.

    I've found that the fours are more finicky. I had a solid six slot board that was just too big for my setup, and then went through about eight four slots until I found one without problems. Thankfully, I Quan helping me out, and he was the only reason I didn't just give up and go back to a two slot. The two is a tank, but my six was rock solid always as well... I've only had problems with fours.

    Bring it home.
    It'll die of abuse in that place.

    Nice Electrocoin MVS cab right there. I used to have Loardsvale MVS cabinet before going the candy cab route. Lovely little cabs. I would stay with the 4 slot if I were you as well.

    I can't help but agree with this. Get it back before it gets raped.

    I have the same cabinet, great machines!



    Have you thought about installing the original red sticks and the original Control Panel Overlay?

    Very cool looking cab. Nice contrast to the ones I see over this side of the pond.
