    Thoughts about MVS cart serial numbers...

    As I continue to work on my collection, I've come across a variety of different ways carts can have (or not have) serial numbers. On the game label.. on a separate sticker.. sticker sometimes sealing the side of a cart.. sometimes scratched off the label.. sometimes nowhere to be found at all...

    Color separation

    I've got a rev1 mvs-4-25 that I think has the original monitor installed. I'm not positive on that, but given the shape of the cabinet when I received it, I'm pretty sure it was all original. One of these days, I'll have to get around to the back and check. Anywho, I've noticed over the years...

    MV-4F and cart connections

    I’ve owned a MVS-4-25 for a while now but never took the time to really learn how to clean it up inside. I got it in, I think, pretty great shape. However, I do have problems with some cart/slot combinations. Some games work fine in some slots and are a huge pain to get to work in other slots...

    MVS Mini Marquee Collection?

    So, getting back in to working on my MVS collection and will be in need of reprinting some mini marquees. Last time around, when I did this, I eventually found what I needed, but that was many years ago. I was wondering if, since then, anyone here has managed to collect a definitive "complete"...

    Sem's 2012 MVS Wanted List

    Greets! So quite a few years ago I decided to work on collecting all the MVS games (any quality to start, but eventually would prefer for good quality kits). I got about halfway and then took a break for quite a while. I recently decided to get back to it! Hopefully you guys can help. I'll...

    New monitor recomendations for a MVS-4-25 Big Red

    Greets! Been a while since I've posted.. I've been neglecting my Neo Geo habit, and am working back in to things once more. My next goal is to replace the monitor in my Big Red. I'm getting a lot of color separation towards the top-left corner. :eek: All the advice and tweaking I have done so...

    MVS cart color significance?

    In my quest to enhance my MVS knowledge, I was going through my small collection and was thinking about the various colors of carts.. I've read somewhere in these forums that white carts were originally rental carts. Is that true? Do the other color carts have any significance? Or did it all...

    MVS multi-slot system and stopping automatic game cycling?

    Greets~ Just a quick question... any of you know if there's a way to make it so a MV-4F (or any multislot mvs for that matter) doesn't cycle through games automatically when it isn't being played? I'd like to set it up so it remains on demoing one game until the Select-Game button is pressed...

    Prehistoric Isle 2 - Why is it so $$?

    Greets. I've been watching sales on a number of copies of PI2 MVS over the past few weeks and it seems that all of them typically sell for a fairly pretty penny in comparison with most other MVS carts. Why is that? Is it really that good of a game? Or is it just that rare? Or something...

    MVS Buttons! Which type is best?

    I recently purchased some new sticks and buttons for my cabinet.. and was thinking... it originally came with concave buttons (when I bought it). I purchased convex ones. I think I like the convex ones but I'm not sure... so I figured I'd get other peoples' opinions on them. What do you guys...
