cruis'n' usa cabinet any ideas?
« on: May 24, 2013, 02:15:58 pm »
I am very new to this hobby.  I have a cruis'n' usa cabinet that is fully functional and is in pretty good condition.  The monitor does not work.  Is there anything i can do with it using an extra standard res monitor or should i just trade the cab for something else.  I got into this mainly because i wanted to use mame to play some fighting games.  Any ideas?  I just can't see myself repairing a monitor.  If any one has ideas or might be intersted in a trade let me know please.

If you're not worried about the force feedback working, you can convert it to play Sega Model 2 games (Daytona USA, Sega Rally, etc) and a couple dozen MAME games (cruisin' USA, Outrun, etc) fairly easily.  I've never interfaced with a real arcade monitor, but there is a sub-forum on here where they can tell you how to do that.  If you don't want to put your other arcade monitor in it, you can slap an old crt tv with an s-video input in there.

If you do want ffb working, it gets a lot more complicated.

Browse the driving cab info thread stickied at the top of this forum to get an idea of what games you can play and how much work it will take to get there.
Browse the driving cab build thread to get an idea of what others have done.

If you want to play fighting games, there is really nothing of use on that cab, trade it for a standard cab.

I guess i was not clear enough.  I have collected 3 cabs, one is the cruis'n, another is a gun game, and i have a dynamo.  I am using the third for my fighting games.  So i have a working police trainer in some bird hunting cab.  The cruis'n has pretty much no purpose for me.  It does not work with the monitors i have and i do not want to invest the effort and money to make it work.  So, that puts me at, what can i trade it for?  Is it worthless, do i take it to the dump?  Can i trade it for a working mk or sf?  I do not know.

It's definitely not worthless, but you'll have to be patient to find a buyer.  Most of the individual parts of a racing cab go for 50-100 bucks a part on ebay.  They are big cabs and thus hard to ship so you have to find somebody in your area or somebody willing to drive a long way to pick it up.  Crusin' is a good game, I would invest the time/money to get it working personally. 

You won't get anybody to trade you a working MK for it though..... because Mortal Kombat cabinets had the full length sideart they are highly collectable and unless you buy one broken and fix it up you'll usually be paying a lot for one.  There's really no such thing as a working SF cab.... they were sold in kit form only.  SF II flooded the market so badly that you can pick up a SF II cab in rough shape for peanuts. 


I would post it on the buy/sell/trade forum first, and then try klov or ebay if you don't get any responses.  DO NOT throw it away though, if nothing else a lot of us would buy the parts off of it from you.

Would it be reasonable to ask for like an sf alpha 2 or 3 in good shape for it?   As long as they are only a state or two away i would meet half way.  I honestly do not know the value of this stuff.  I do not want to rip anyone off or myself.  Since sf flooded the market maybe two cabs... i do not know and i do not want to post in the trade with an outrageous request.

I don't really have anything to trade, but I am in central Ohio too (Hilliard/ Galloway). How much do you want for it?
