    SNK 40th Anniversary = Shitload of Fuck

    Mounting PCBs on wood

    Hey guys, most of my PCBs are bare, but I do have a few that are mounted on wooden boards. Although they take up more room, I feel a bit better handling them and knowing they will be relatively protected in and out of the cabinet. What is your process for mounting? Best Practice? Supplier of...

    2-player coin-up on Candy Cab

    Many North American arcade games have a separate coin-mech for each player. Oftentimes, when player one inserts a coin, the credit goes to player one, and similar for player two, in that their coin gets allocated to player 2. eg. Neo Geo. With some candy cabinets coming with only one coin-mech...
