    i've been lucky with mine still has its original power supply, its completely rusted but still works fine.

    i couldn't last a week without playing a game on mine so 4 years is a no go

    A few minutes of Neo-Geo a day can keep the doctor away. 4 years is 1460 days too long, in my opinion.

    Glad you are back in the game. I agree 4 years is way too long for something to be sitting around with an easy fix lol.

    The path to marketplace access is paved with necro bumping.

    My MVS has run close to perfect since I got it (almost 2 years), but I've had other cabs go down for months before finding time to fix them even with parts on hand. Shit happens.

    I did. I related to the OP's situation by referring to a similar situation I encountered with another cabinet.

    Unless... You are talking about the fact that necro bumping was already referenced on the thread. In that case: Saw it, figured that this on the first page and fair game.

    The necrobump was already a year ago, just saying. Necrobumping won't get you market access 😎

    I already have market access. I posted because I was bored, killing time on the board, clicked a post near the top of a slow section and responded. Defending the honor of the deep recesses of the board isn't really getting you anything here. Be happy someone is active.

    I was just fooling around. Even if I called you out for real on it, saying you just wanted to up your postcount.
    By starting that discussion it would exactly do that.
    Stick around, it's a madhouse here

    It's all good man. I've been a lurker here for a good while, so know this is a rougher neighborhood than my usual haunt (KLOV), but my MVS collection has grown in the last few months and it has passed my other machines in play-time, so I'll likely be around more, but I tend to be active in flurries.

    debatable. You might see the market, yet might not be tolerated there.
