How things are looking now. I've cut back on the number of titles I have, but I feel like the overall game quality has gone up. I thought about what home titles I genuinely wanted to own, and that's how I came to the decision to let go of some carts and go for Pulstar. I don't regret it, and quite a few of the titles I let go of can be found again in Japan with relative ease. From left to right, here's my smaller collection:

League Bowling
Minnasan no Okagesamadesu (Monolith soft case variant)
Viewpoint
Sengoku 2
Samurai Shodown
Spinmaster
Art of Fighting 2
Windjammers
Sonic Wings 2
Samurai Shodown 2
Dunk Dream
Fatal Fury 3
Pulstar
Sonic Wings 3
Samurai Shodown 3
Samurai Shodown 4
Real Bout Fatal Fury Special
Magical Drop 3

It's funny looking back on your collection thread, seeing how things were, lol. I got the itch to explore more hardware with the same prowess as the Neo Geo, and the only way to do that was to expand into arcade hardware in general. Here's how my collection is looking now that my homecarts have been passed on. I still have my big red cab from my first post, that's a keeper. :)

Yo Dig! Nice PCB collection! Ive always been curious about the Pana guns, what are they like? I couldnt tell if they were like very sought after/high end or what, but when I was investigating superguns initially, they would always come up.

Also, just so you know your MDIII gets CONSTANT adoration and play, and I show/hook new people on the game all the time.

Hey man! The Pana line of control box superguns are rock solid. They were made by KIC's, aka Kyowa International, the company that made the very first supergun in Japan back in 1986. They're of excellent quality, with some unique buttons that are different from Sanwa and Seimitsu. It uses the same switch as a Seimitsu button, but the button housing and plunger are different, effecting the feel. They're some of the best buttons I've ever used. Pana boxes also have the best RGB and sync output of any of the Japanese superguns I've seen. The original Pana Twin and Pana Custom are a little small for 2-player use, as there's not much space between each players controls. Also, the Pana Twin has almost no palm space, so if that's something to keep in mind. If you want more space between player controls, go for a Pana Custom Long or Pana Twin Long. They released those in mid 1995 to address the space issues of the original models. If a mahjong panel is a must, then the Twin is for you, but if you can live without that, get a Custom.

And I'm glad to hear that MDIII gets the playtime it deserves. :buttrock:
