in my day the arcade game was not worth playing unless it had cigarette burns on it. the longer the burn mark the better the game :laugh2:
sad but true

You know, you're right.  Not something I thought about or really noticed, but I think it's self evident when you see the games that had control panel overlays made for them.  Nobody was bothering with those for games like Zarzon.



In these parts, a 'relic'd' thing was unsavory. Good arcades kept up their machines.

WHen you put the pacman or Galaga in the cart right now it gives you :

Quote
20% off $100+ Collectibles Purchase - Get 20% off your collectibles purchase when you spend $100+ on collectibles! Some exclusions apply. Applicable to physical in-stock items ONLY. Offer valid _. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice. - Pac-Man Home Arcade with Riser

So that drops the price to $303.99 - Not sure if they'll change that if they see it so if you plan to order you might want to do it now !

the latest updates on the replacement spinner and board should be coming shortly on amazon.

they are also planning to make a replacement trackball also, no price yet.
---

in other upgrades and improvements, looks like there are reports of Arcade 1UP using real
T-molding in some cabinets, like the Street Fighter 2 one, and perhaps other ones for
future releases.

I have a real arcade. Ms Pac-man. I have had it for years. I have had many real cabs.
My Nintendo VS was the first cab that hurt my back. I had over a grand invested in modding this cab and gave it away. I could no longer move it.
Now I own 5 1UP cabs.
Yes I think there junky. But are perfect for modding . I see them as cabarets.
I just purchased a Ms PAC complete art set. $150.00. I am adding dell monitor's .
Replacing buttons with quality buttons and quality joystick bought from venders here.
I am using HP I5 computers and MAME.
My street fighter cab was done with ETA Prime set up. Zero delay. This got me back into modding
The Ms PAC will have a pie 3 with game pad hacks ( just for the fun of it)
1UP as a company really suck ass.
All 5 of my cabs were on sale for $200.00
I think the cabs are with that simply for the fun of redoing them and still light enough for me to move with out weeks of pain afterwards.

PBJ that sounds like a really unlikely combination. It really works together? If so is there a commercial cider similar to your hooch? It sounds like an unholy combination, but I am game for something new.

I believe itís called a snakebite. I havenít had one in decades but I remember it being not my thang. But a pbj snakebite sounds like itíll have extra bite!

i agree.  i only have 1 that i bought for modding, and thats its.

i would never buy another one stock. there aren't any more titles that interest me.
i thought about getting the 12-1 to mod, but instead am getting a cocktail cabinet kit
from one of the vendors on here, but it's been 2 months without a reply, so i keep up
with the arcade 1up news.

i'm interested in the replacement parts, because they tend to be cheaper than getting
the real things, and they will work with USB controls, for the pc i will be using for
emulation.

USB spinners like this magnet one might not be comparable to the real optical ones,
but for most people they will never notice the difference. i have 2 real spinners in
my blasteroids cabinet, so i know how those feel, compared to the cheap USB spinner
i use now for emulation.

so yeah, i am interested in updates to the controls, and i'm sure anyone else modding
them is also.

Yeah, it's more or less a snakebite.  Really more of a Black Velvet because of the strength of my cider/apple wine.  And the laziness of my pouring.

Magner's Irish Cider is the closest I've tasted to what I'm making. I used to like Strongbow but they quit selling it here, all you can get is sugar water versions.  Austin Eastcider pretty decent, too. 

Anyway, they're refreshing and you won't get too wobbly.

I don't even buy my bloomers at Walmart anymore because they are much too close to that stupid Arcade1 sawdust freakshow (although back there by the cheap shoes I'd a good place for them IMO), ... As for the ones I did buy back in the begining, finally  just dropped them off behind the Goodwill to get rid of them....Jennifer has left the building.

depending on the discretion of the wal-mart managers.

some people have been able to purchase new cabinets of space invaders for $199.
which isn't too bad a price.

Bloomers or Arcade1Ups at the Goodwill?

You need a pallet of Arcade1up or GTFO! https://www.directliquidation.com/auction/266210-pallet-18-pcs-other-nintendo-customer-returns-arcade-1up-agptek/

Seeing how fast the cheapy spinner sells out, I'd say there are quite a few owners of the Asteroids cabinet. It's my least favorite cabinet and when I sold one (new) I could only get $100.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07P5WJ7BC
I still can't tell if it's good or not.

I'm kind of surprised to see Wal-mart continuing to sell the A1UP stuff.

Right now, they are competing on price with Bestbuy and Gamestop for a new Pacman + riser combo and Space Invaders. It just doesn't make sense to me why they would buy them, start putting them on clearance a few days after release, raise the prices back up, lower them again, and continue to sell the 2nd wave.

In my local area, my Walmart prices on the Arcade1up would change all the time. The price would go down to 249, then back up to 299. Back and forth, as low as $175.  Right now, they are all normal full price except for Asteroids. It's $229.

It's just goofy.

Replacement spinner is in stock : https://www.amazon.com/ThunderStick-Arcade-Spinner-for-Arcade1Up/dp/B07P5WJ7BC

Will have to wait on the USB replacement board for 12-1 as they have to make adjustments on it.

I like how when he started with this, it was a spinner being developed by a "friend", and now it's "his" spinner.  As it turns out, his "friend" is a Chinese manufacturer for whom he and his early adopters are beta testers.  And he, of course, is likely getting a cut of the proceeds.  Nothing wrong with that, but it's not how he originally presented it to his customers.  In the end, it was rushed to market with issues and without full functionality.

The 8ms thing is also farcical.  I've noticed no such delays on the A1UP machines.  The reports from the controls can be sent a few thousand times per second, which equates to about .3ms.  And even if there was, 8ms lag is such a small amount of time, it would never manifest itself as the cause of the issues being discussed.  Unless, there were 8ms lag between each 1 position change, with the input being buffered and the movements being spilled out for some time after cease of movement.  The pitch man for this item clearly has no idea what is going on "under the hood" and is relaying what is likely a made up excuse from the manufacturer for the performance issues.

Once Thunderstick (Chinese manufacturer) gets the bugs ironed out to the extent that they can with this technology, I predict that these units will litter the Chinese arcade parts landscape through multiple sellers, just like the "Zero Delay" encoders, Sanwa-clones, etc.  So it probably won't be "his" for long ;)

the replacement spinner has been in and of out of stock lately.

it seems they sell in batches of 500, and have sold out a few times now.
the 12-1 board is in stock though.

There's a lot of assumptions being posted about these items which go uncorrected.  :)  The first "pre-sell" was only a little over 100 units, so it looks more like the total was 500 and they are trickling in.

i honestly have a hard time believing they sold 500 spinners.  very few people showing their spinners installed but 70? sold personally from glen already?
