I’ve been reading about using original arcade pcbs and I’d like to get into it and pick up a couple of my old favorites from my 90s arcade days. (Virtua Fighter / VF2, Street Fighter 2, etc)
I think I’ve got a fairly good handle on what I need to get going but I’m having a hard time finding components. The most recommended superguns and frame doublers (e.g. HAS, OSSC) aren’t available even to wait list for. I can’t tell what’s real on ebay versus bootleg and while OSSC is open source seems there’s a lot of community negativity on buying from other suppliers. Got excited and thought a second tier pic, the progamer was within reach but they don’t ship to USA.
Anyway, thought I would try a post here and see what’s for sale if anything after finding that ‘for gamers with more money than sense’ thread which I thought was well written. Also any advice you guys have for buying PCBs would be appreciated. I’ve been poking at a couple on ebay but haven’t taken the plunge since I want to have a setup ready to test it when it arrives. Looking locally in craigslist / offerup gets me nowhere. Thanks!
