Do they work?

I snagged three of them for $10 but had system errors.  All were 1.0.  I have an xecutor solderless mod chip so I fitted it and TSOP'd them, added a 80gb HDD and plopped CoinOps 6 and XBMC and sold them for $150 each.  Gotta love those thrift stores.

And we can presume that you legally owned all the ROMs you 'plopped' on them?

I don't know why I bring out the stupid in you.

Where did I say that I plopped roms?  Of all people you know that Coinops 6 is released as a stand alone without roms.  Of all people you know of my ROM stance.  Take a hard look at the polar bear above.  I am not going to call you dumb, but you have your moments.  Yotsuya....well.....maybe it is age related.  Who knows? :lol 


You didn't even mention the TSOP.  You are slipping man.   ::)

Shipping something from the U.S. to Canada for repair/exchange?  Please use USPS to avoid (additional?/excessive?) shipping charges.  PM me if you have any questions.

They both work. I get that they are not super valuable but I wanted one and they happened to have two on sale. 

I had one running XBMC back in the day and think I may go the XBMC 4 xbox on this one. Coin opp's looks cool but I don't need a another emulated box. I just want it to play original xbox games. Does coin pop's have any advantages for this I'm over looking?

No it is an all in one arcade cab solution.  If you get the massive versions it has a lot of different emulators and roms included,  something stupid like 50gb in size.  I just use the roms I bought or have the boards for over the years and just use mamedox.

Video speaks volumes:

Its sad I have to explain myself countless times about the use of roms in my possession.  But the old ladies in here seem to lose it otherwise.

Ed, you dose need to calm down when posting replies to my posts.  I know you are excited to do so, but when you rush you get all unintelligent and I have a problem understanding your invaluable comment.  Now slowly explain to me what a dump-ass is.  Is it some new urban lingo?  I can assure you I am not dump-assing any roms ,OK?
