Like Skips messy mod thread. This is specific to Arcade cabinets. As plenty of us have dealt with or seen unnecessary hack jobs and/or folks with little common sense or care.

Examples of such poor work:

- unnecessary/poor wiring (when you can make adapters)
- useless mods
- console hack jobs (when there are clean JAMMA consoles out there)
- destroying preservation (dedicated cabs, Universal Candy cabs with limited and/or hard to find parts)
- physical alterations

You get the idea, this is not just MAME cabs folks. There are plenty of Clean Work Posts inside the "I finished today" and specific cab threads.

2005 - While stationed in Northern California

Namco Cyberlead with Tekken 3 pcb

Homeowner's friend hacked up existing JVS harness and directly soldered wiring to the JAMMA edge on the PCB.

- I found the Factory Namco JVS/JAMMA I/O inside the coin box

- Tekken 3 is also a JAMMA or JVS System 12 board... It even has specific features for a Namco Cyberlead via JVS.
