I dunno, it's such a unique machine, designed specifically for TWO player Joust... none of the other MW games take  advantage of two player games/controls.

$0.03. Do what you want. Reach across the front and play Robotron with the two separate joysticks. Smoke a bowl, put in an LCD. Make yourself happy.

Don't listen to Yots Chance. Joust was a crappy game and the cocktail version was even worse. All around ugly machine that you don't need.

Tell you what, I'll do you a huge favor and take it off your hands. :)

Yeah, I don't want to be THAT GUY, especially around here anymore, but unless you're just using the MW to run just Joust, I don't see the point in MWing that unique cab.

So it warms my heart to hear you found a Joust boardset. There's nothing wrong with a cab that just plays 1 game, especially when you already have a MAME cab that can play almost anything.

This however means i'll need to find new sticks and order new buttons. Did these cocktails have their own version of the 2-way Joust joysticks? or are we quite sure they used the same as the uprights? :)

They were unique to the Joust cocktail. I have heard of people using cocktail Defender sticks (replacing the shafts).

See thats just part of it, nobody's done a MW with a Joust cocktail that i can find.

There's a reason for that. Look at the game list:

Defender - Up and down 2-way joystick, 5 buttons needed
Stargate - Up and down 2-way joystick, 6 buttons needed
Joust - Up and down 2-way joystick, 1 button needed
Robotron - Dual Joysticks
Bubbles - 8 Way Joystick
Splat - Dual Joysticks
Sinistar - 49 way joystick, 1 button needed
Blaster - 49 way joystick, 2 buttons needed

Of those games, only Joust is simultaneous 2 player.

Again, do what you want, but I'm glad you're planning on an original boardset.

FWIW - which isn't much coming from me, I'd have to agree with the rest of the peeps here and make it as close to the original as possible. save the MW for a repro cab a la your Nintendo cab mate.

Joust is one of the classics that can stand on it's own any day. Add one of the more rare versions of the cab to the equation and it would almost assuredly be one of the most sought after cabs round these parts.

IMHO a MW board would "cheapen" it.

Look into this joystick base kit at your own risk.   :scared

More info about the Joust cocktail sticks here on KLOV.

Reply #7 mentions that Arcadeshop used to carry repros.

Reply #9 mentions machining down upright sticks.

Kjoel had a few posts on KLOV 6 years ago gauging interest in repros/rebuilds here and here.

Why "at my own risk"?
E-mail for price usually means that the parts are going to cost an arm, a leg, and a third appendage to be named later.

I've never dealt with this vendor or this product.    :dunno

I didn't want to appear to endorse an unknown.  Caveat Emptor.

Looks like you have some documentation that isn't on the KLOV Joust manual listing.

Would you mind cross-checking for missing pages/poor image quality and scanning any new docs to share with the various manual sites?   ;D

Thanks for your consideration.

Reply #9 in the KLOV thread here implies that the difference is shaft diameter, not length.

Or you can make your own like I had to do. I took upright sticks and machined them down to the size of the cocktails. The picture below shows the original and the machined down "repros" I made.

I personally like the videos.  I've watched most of Chance's and John's.

Tip:

Watch long videos in YouTube on 2x speed. It was life-changing when I realized Chrome had this feature. I can pound out a 1hr arcade video in 30mins. I think Chrome is the only browser with this feature.

Or did you read the cliff notes instead.   >:D
