    You should get on that since it's not too hard. Surely it is worth the investment in time and resources to clone a system that plays less than 20 games.
    It's a cold cold world Madman. Prices for cps1 shit has skyrocketed. Ghouls n' Ghosts and Strider are hitting the $900.00 mark on eBay and Final Fight aint much better.

    As much as I'm into real hardware, fuck dat noise. I can't see any game being worth $900. Not even Super Mario 64. And this shit is largely being bought by people living in squalor just so they can afford old arcade games.

    CPS-1 would be awesome. A CPS-2 solution that doesn't rely on one-millionth-of-an-inch thick pins would be even better. (I'll admit I have one and love it, but God help anyone who tries to remove it from their B-board.)

    Pretty big exaggeration there, since Final Fight is still $150-$200. CPS1 games can be converted with relative ease but I guess if people want to pay hundreds for EPROMs burned by Capcom socketed on sketchy hardware that's their lookout.

    I'm surprised CPS-1 prices are so high. Aren't those boards pretty prone to failure compared to something like CPS-2?

    I use to own a really clean Willow board and it was a piece of shit. The main reason I got out of arcade collecting was shit breaking all the time. It seems the enclosed type games work better though.

    I hear you on the pins. My multi is going to stay attached to that B board forever.

    Same here. I would store boards away carefully in ant-static bags for a few months and when I went to play them they either would stop working or have some sort of graphic or sound issue. Luckily I never got around to collecting alot of bare pcb boards and got rid of the working ones before they stopped working.

    Only Arcade stuff I still own are CPS2 and a few MVS carts. I'll stick to Emulation for the rest.

    Wise move. I think a lot of arcade collectors have a few expensive paperweights laying around they plan to get fixed but never do

    Ain't that the truth...

    The only PCBs I have are the CPS Changer ones, but even they had issues.

    I confess I lived under a rock for the past couple of months, new job and all.
    So after all the posturing, videos etc.... did the DarkSoft cart came out or not?
    I mean it's been quite some months since it was said they could have shipped it anytime .... so how about now?

    I have one, no worries.

    I am just mystified that "oh we're ready", "oh we can sell it anytime" and yet time passes and it looks more and more it was just posturing and the only reason for that was to delay people in buying a product that exists and functions for one that does not seem to be ready even after another 6 months or so.

    Now if they had balls they would just apologize for having bad-mouthed a product without really having an alternative, if or when they have something then it will be time to evaluate but for now as you put it, Nope, not out. NEOSD is though.

    Any good reason offered for the ongoing delay? Manufacturing issues, prepping products/packaging, etc?

    Essentially it goes like this...

    There was techinal pros and cons for BOTH versions... the Neosd and darksoft Version...

    BOTH could've been compatible but the Neosd team had a professional outfit... and completed a world class project...

    The darksoft team payed peanuts to its developers.... and so only got Monkeys to develop the system... and the monkeys shit all over the project...

    THERE.. YOU UNDERSTANDEY NOW!
