It's been a good while, to which I apologize - on the arcade side of things, I've wanted to provide a good reason to post an announcement. Today, I have a few:

Winners are announced December 1 at 8pm (US EST).
If you're a member of the FA.R Rewards, you can redeem coupon codes today for less chips. I'm also awarding extra chips to the top 10 earners during the sale.
Finally, I wanted to announce the release of KOWAL Flat Plate Converter
and Japan S Plate Converter
. It's been a project of several months, recognizing that adapter plates do exist in the arcade scene and have for a while. It's here that I hope you'll still find both KOWAL converter plates worthwhile.
The FPC is designed to accommodate many modern Japanese and US/EU joysticks and panels. The JSP was made for compatibility with all Seimitsu joystick models (LS32/33/40/55/56/58) and Sanwa JLW, and to fit in any Japanese import cabinet that can accept the LS-32 mounting plate.
Here is a quick breakdown. Please mention if you can't see the images:

The FPC and JSP retail for $9.95
. You can score one for just $7.95
Following this, I'm adding a screw and nut kit for the plates to assist with install if needed. Finally, SRK's and Neo Geo Forum's Lemony Vengeance is developing an install video so you can see how both plates work in a variety of cabinets.
If you're interested, I really hope you'll pick one up. Here is a quick link to this and other KOWAL items:http://buff.ly/1yaBn6E
