Arcade1up: Wave 2

I wanted to start a new thread for those of us who are interested in the Arcade1up Wave 2's currently being displayed at CES.

I'm curious about the Ghost'n'Goblins bartop control scheme. Appears the joystick is on the right and the buttons on the left.

Have they released a price yet?  I'm thinking these have to be under $100 to sell, especially when they are put down the same isle as a $300 "full sized" model.  I might be interested if they were competitively priced.

it's temporary, most likely they will move it over at some point you would hope.

Have they released a price yet?  I'm thinking these have to be under $100 to sell, especially when they are put down the same isle as a $300 "full sized" model.  I might be interested if they were competitively priced.

no prices yet, i'm sure they will be overpriced at first, as usual from expectations.

What size screen are they using 9" ??

maybe, or perhaps 6 or 7 inches, the wallcade units are using a 12 inch screen.

Had a walk around 1Ups Stand and took some pictures.

I think 1Up has found their place in the novelty gaming market.

Cocktail Cabinet with Barstools.   That setup would look neat in any man cave.

https://pix.sfly.com/_z02uJ

Asteroids Deluxe Cabinet.

https://pix.sfly.com/B8zxdV

Final Fight Cabinet

https://pix.sfly.com/YkEJip

Golden Tee (with lighted marquee)

https://pix.sfly.com/iJ8voS

Ghost and Goblins bartop.  These are really cool and will retail at $199 once they have licensing.

https://pix.sfly.com/9nUBXG

Mortal Kombat.  I want one of these.

https://pix.sfly.com/H5yJJT

This was from the PS4 stand showing the Grand Turismo cockpit with the PS4.

https://pix.sfly.com/PkUZfT

Karate Champ

https://pix.sfly.com/cFfJ8x

Wall Cades.  I bet you guys wished you patented these designs.

https://pix.sfly.com/2KOVQr

Looks like they solved the graphics fading on the cabs with a material similar to xarcade.  Others had a thin plexi covering it.

I had a real hard time uploading these.

If you have a Flckr account you might want to head over there as something is afoot....

Enjoy.

As long as people want quality, I donít see these toys biting in to that market. Try cramming an Xbox into one of those shells.

They will kill that market, in as much as it still exists.  "Vendors" didn't even bother trying to hustle them at the last Houston show.  Usually you had 3-4 vendors with tables covered in those dust collectors.

You know when you're sitting on the can, almost done with your business, then you feel the "Wave 2" come on?  That's what this is like.

It's like finishing up your dump, just about the wipe, then BOOM!  Another wave of ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- drops, and you gotta wait till it has run it's course before you can clean-up and resume normalcy.   :lol

Totally agree. I mean, bartop kits won't go away completely, but damn, it's getting hard to find a niche'. I was wondering if the whole bartop scene was drying up faster than full size standups. As far as I'm concerned, this replaces my bartop Galaga build - as in, I wouldn't have built it if I had one of these available for a couple hundred bucks. Mine had a 9" CRT in it, so screen wise I bet they are comparable.

To be fair, I havenít had hands on time but the shell looks totally useable.

If the monitor is decent, playing Galaga isnít a real precision based game where controls matter that much. I could see that bartop offering a decent gaming experience.

The MK cabinet looks cool just for the art and the dedicated controls.  But it's still too small.  It would be awesome to hack and cram every (mainline) MK game in it though.

My original mame cabinet (which is about 19-20 years old at this point) was loosely based on the MK cabs.  Been thinking of finally trashing it and re-building with the exact-ish mk profile so I can get some repro sideart and do exactly what you are suggesting.  Either that or do some custom MK anthology art to cover all past and future games. 

Anyway, I agree.... MK II is my absolute favorite cabinet of all time due to the side art and that half pint version is pretty tempting. 

As for the pricing on the new units I think the bartops are a little high considerning the size and build quality but everything else is pretty reasonable.  It'll be interesting to see how these do. The summer release date might hurt those MK cabs... around the holidays people are scrambling for gifts so it artificially inflates sales.

Yeah, as I said before in terms of software they can use MAME 0.172 or newer, in that case they don't even have to ask permission to use the MAME software, 0.172 and above are GPL licensed (they do need to provide any source mods tho as per the GPL)

They can't use anything before that, nobody on the development team can give them permission for that even if they ask. the licensing doesn't permit it and can't be retroactively changed.

They can't use FBA or anything FBA derived, FBA has been non-commercial from day 1 (as FBA contains old MAME code + cores etc.)

If they want to use the MAME trademark to advertise their product as MAME / being powered by MAME then they need to ask and be granted permission (but again if they're using 0.172 and above, and have legally licensed ROMs then gaining permission is just a matter of formality to fulfil the legal obligation, it's highly unlikely anybody on the dev team would object)  If they don't want to use the MAME trademark, or show MAME logos anywhere then, again, as long as they're using 0.172 or above it isn't a problem, they don't need to ask simply to use the software.

It was mentioned to me that these new machines might not be MAME at all tho, so I don't know if anybody has done a tear-down of one.

We have however made it as easy as possible, within our own power, to allow people to use MAME in a legal way for such cases, our power does not extend to being able to relicense versions prior to 0.172 however.

I'm wondering if maybe we should have called it MAME2 at that point, since some people do seem to be struggling to grasp that license changes can't be retroactive in such cases, but that's an aside.

You missed Haze's (and ark-ader's) input early in thread #1.

Yeah, as I said before in terms of software they can use MAME 0.172 or newer, in that case they don't even have to ask permission to use the MAME software, 0.172 and above are GPL licensed (they do need to provide any source mods tho as per the GPL)

They can't use anything before that, nobody on the development team can give them permission for that even if they ask. the licensing doesn't permit it and can't be retroactively changed.

They can't use FBA or anything FBA derived, FBA has been non-commercial from day 1 (as FBA contains old MAME code + cores etc.)

If they want to use the MAME trademark to advertise their product as MAME / being powered by MAME then they need to ask and be granted permission (but again if they're using 0.172 and above, and have legally licensed ROMs then gaining permission is just a matter of formality to fulfil the legal obligation, it's highly unlikely anybody on the dev team would object)  If they don't want to use the MAME trademark, or show MAME logos anywhere then, again, as long as they're using 0.172 or above it isn't a problem, they don't need to ask simply to use the software.

It was mentioned to me that these new machines might not be MAME at all tho, so I don't know if anybody has done a tear-down of one.

We have however made it as easy as possible, within our own power, to allow people to use MAME in a legal way for such cases, our power does not extend to being able to relicense versions prior to 0.172 however.

I'm wondering if maybe we should have called it MAME2 at that point, since some people do seem to be struggling to grasp that license changes can't be retroactive in such cases, but that's an aside.

Well we all know the amount of public outcry caused of using a well known emulator in a commercial product like Arcade 1UP.  Nothing at all.  Almost like a free ticket to ride.  I think Arcade 1UP just gave the contract to a Chinese outfit and they returned a result, of the lowest common denominator for the bid.  The artwork was really good, simplistic easy of construction, pretty cheap controls, and electronics that were sourced from existing components.  Arcade 1Up had the licensing and the roms and they went with it.

Nobody challenged anything, and they sold a boat full at Christmas.  Roll on 2019 and they have variations obviously copied from the hobbyist sites.  Let's face it, they did a very good job too.  So I think Haze might have put his foot into his mouth, when he said it was MAME driven, and spoke to any distributors.  I think that was poor judgement on his part.  It appears Arcade 1Up have their own emulator, but they could have just used an older version of MAME as it wasn't legally challenged when they <insert Chinese company here> made the x in 1 devices that was running an older variant of MAME in those Chinese boards all those many years ago.

It is not that MAME is inconsequential, there is no legal mandate here, no precedence.  Just some hoo haw from a (ex) official developer of code that was MAME, which he can site pride of authorship, but so can thousands more who contributed at the time.  Personally I would like to see Mamedev take anyone to court of license infringement, including the copyright logo and various MAME IP.  It would bring legitimacy to the project, and serve a wake up call to the emulation community. It would take years, and it would allow companies like Nintendo, Sega, Taito, SNK, Tecmo, Atari, WIlliams, etc. to voice how MAME impacted their IP and past/future IP revenue.  I remember how fast the Mamedevs moved when their copyright was being challenged by Mike Foley.  MameDev moved pretty quickly eh?  Made the press.
 
There was no internet sensation or viral videos of the emulation issue.  It was and still is, one big Meh:  "Wow. Really? Who cares.  How much is those cabinets again?  I want one." pretty much summed it up.

I myself want the that Asteroids Deluxe cab.  It looks cute.   :applaud:

Think how Arcade 1Up is making a revival of our hobby and bringing thousands of young people in to enjoy arcade classics like we did back when it was tokens or quarters at the Pizza Hutt or the local arcade.  That alone is worth the price of admission.

I like the idea that the 1Up Arcade cabinet of the games we play on is legit, as most of us are operating in the gray.   

I have fifteen arcade mainboards, including a dead Stargate.  So in theory I can sell my stargate with the dead mainboard and have a pi running Mame and the stargate roms that match the mainboard. That is what MAME was designed for.  You just cannot sell the roms with the emulator.  I think we can agree on that at least.  :)



I was wondering... when did MAMEDEV start licensing MAME to companies?   Some of these Arcade1Up machines are running MAME.139,  MAME2003(.078) and Final Burn Alpha?!?

Hi FF can you (or anyone) show me an image that shows Arcade 1UP is using MAME or FBA, and not some GUI that looks like it?  Need to literally say MAME anywhere.  Thanks.

Its called MESS I believe, and it just makes the rabbit hole deeper. 

Who made an arcade game port from the BBC Micro?  Was it Chucky Egg? 

So what the hell is the BBC DFS drivers doing in an arcade emulator?   :dizzy:

That has been the consensus, but I found out a few days ago that some of that abandondware as you call it, is not as mystical as one thinks.

Haze likens Mame to a cassette deck or VCR.  That is the problem.

These are pretty cool for a casual gamer that wants nostalgia, but I'll never go for it.  I've got a Williams SmashTV cabinet in my garage with a 25" CRT with a brand new (donor) tube, and it looks leaps and bounds better than those LCDs.

I'd rather build,  but I can see the appeal.

You know one of the reasons so many people don't post on MAME's own forums or MW anymore and you can see tumbleweeds there, is that they dislike being bashed with condescending BS morality by people arguing legality when they are the very ones dumping, coding and providing what must be the #1 software in the world made for playing countless pirated games, and motivated droves to do so for the past two decades.

But go on, keep ridiculing yourself chasing people around over their internet hangouts, pop in brandishing a cross, foaming and spluttering they're all wrong and bad and will go to hell, that's quite entertaining! sure helps MAME and certainly doesn't make people regret ever thanking mamedev for their work or one day agreeing on whatever topic with you, also.

To make things even more interesting, I think we should collect money to equip you with a powerful megaphone.
Because accelerationism is a healthy thing for fools lost in absurd contradictory delirium and who don't realize they're harming themselves and their surroundings.

The only reason why you post here as you have some credibility as a coder but not as an advocate of morality. 

If any part of what I am stating is incorrect, please furnish some credible proof.  Yet you post on here knowing full well that you will get a reaction.  I like responding to your posts to pick out the nonsense you generate.  Like I have said in the past posts, that I like you.  What you dribble out on here doesn't change that.  It is just we are seeing some good coming out of MAME for a change, and you are acting like the "primordial man seeing the moon at the first time and throwing rocks at it".

I am just reminding you of the history of the project for the past twenty or so years of free reign to emulate whatever you seen fit, regardless of the IP infraction.  Big deal.

Unlike you David I will just put some references here to back up my point, and yours too funnily enough:

http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.917.1648&rep=rep1&type=pdf

https://scholarship.law.berkeley.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1617&context=btlj

https://open.mitchellhamline.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1062&context=cybaris

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/asi.23875

This last one sets to discuss video game preservation, but there is no discussion that the said archive should play the games as an application. 

Lots of stuff in their respective bibliographies.  Should keep you guys up most nights or help with insomnia.  ;)

Everything that was shown needs to be taken with large grains of salt.

Obviously this CES show, is just for showing off prototypes, some licensees, and
demo units.

They want to include real arcade parts, but its not a done deal.

There might be 2 versions, a lower priced unit, with lesser parts, and regular marquee,
and a more expensive edition with a lit marquee.

They said that hopefully by E3, they will have a better idea of what pricepoints and units will be available.

Agreed.  I think it was good of them to have a proper showing/display. 

I felt that this year's CES was severely lacking, but I am looking forward to E3.

This is nothing new.  You get speculation with all kinds of products.  If you look at cinema, there are always previews of scenes that does not appear in the finished production.  Since CES gets global attention why not bring out proposed cabinets to invoke some hidden IP whale to get in contact with them. 

Since online vendors have been selling unlicensed artwork for two decades, and only one person had the balls to shut them down, I would look at any said declaration of bringing said goods to market as a simple measured risk assessment. 

It is only funny to you, due them taking the time to bring a stable product out of the retro chaos of 2018 and the previous two decades. 

It is not funny to see a company taking a sensible approach to this niche market, and being openly mocked for doing so on this respectable board, of all places.  ::)

No it's hilarious that you think the rub-off graphics/chip-wood/dead pixels/fisher price controls was a sensible approach.  ::)

These cash-grab trend riders need to be openly mocked for cutting corners for their bottom line. I'm all for saving a buck, but if you compromise the integrity of your product and pass it off as an authentic experience, then you deserve all the backlash this niche market gives you.

I would think the guy who smugly told the owner of a 60-1 that he was running an illegal arcade machine in his break room would be horrified to see unlicensed machines on the floor of a major trade show.

No it's hilarious that you think the rub-off graphics/chip-wood/dead pixels/fisher price controls was a sensible approach.  ::)

These cash-grab trend riders need to be openly mocked for cutting corners for their bottom line. I'm all for saving a buck, but if you compromise the integrity of your product and pass it off as an authentic experience, then you deserve all the backlash this niche market gives you.

I think the vast majority of businesses are cash-grab. Money is the name of the game after all.

I think the control panel graphics issue is legit, and hopefully they resolve that for this release. If you had issues with the controls, I really didn't, but if you did, it seems you are not alone and the trackball they chose for Golden Tee is Happ and the controls for MK appear to be different than the SF cab, so perhaps those are upgraded too.

Based off what I've seen, I'm not really a wall-arcade kind of guy, but I did like the bartops. I might love the Mortal Kombat. I have never liked ergonomics with a cocktail, so no interest there. If the wall light is a Galaga ship, I'm interested.

I liked the previous release and I'm going to remain optimistic for this new release. Why not? I mean, why be so pessimistic about a product you haven't put your hands on yet?

Of course!  My beef is that they're touting these things as authentic experiences. During last year's Evolution 2018 fighting game tournament they had Pro Street Fighter players endorse these cabinets through poorly scripted streaming video ads. (cringe worthy as well) They mentioned "they felt like how it was BITD".

It's fine to make money, just don't falsely claim your product is something it's not.

Another big issue aside from the CP graphics and controls was the LCD's. There are various reports of dead pixels and terrible viewing angles.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!  They have already set a precedence and a quality bar, with no real forthcoming statements that V2 is going to fix some of these issues. 

So, as pessimistic I may be, I've got no reasons to think otherwise.

Not really.  I also got the owner to buy a xbox for the break room.  The vets who worked there really liked call of duty, said it was like looking for the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- in Iraq.  Better than playing bubble bobble I guess.

 So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

I think they are going to have trouble actually bringing the NBA Jam machine to market. Why? The licensed for all the players expired a long time ago, so they would have to approach EVERY single player and make new deals with them (which wont be cheap) or make them all "generic" players and give them a number instead of a name (which is a pretty big change to the game).

I've also heard "rights" issues are why machines with TMNT and The Simpsons are not likely ever to happen. Basically any game that was based on a film or TV show will be hard to make happen. Or if it does happen, itll be MORE expensive for the same machine because of the "extra" costs.

And that's the rub.

Of all the games I was nostalgic for, the quarter pumpers were my biggest disappointment. Credit buttons and games designed to eat quarters is a bad combination for me. I remember when I first discovered Mame, first stop - Gauntlet. I loaded up so many credits. I loved hearing the "dong!" sound it made to mean I had another 200 health. 20+ levels later, realizing the enemies really had no power over me since I could easily add more credits.... well, some arcade magic was lost for me that day.

NBA Jam is different though. It's a fun game. Not for me, I don't really like sports games, but I know it was a fun game for many.

Yeah, my son and I one afternoon played over 100 levels of Gauntlet to see what happened when you hit 100. What happens? Nothing.

I know what you mean. I still enjoy them though, but unlimited quarters DOES take the edge out of some games though. I played the Xmen arcade game and did special moves over and over again (which they decrease your health).

Hi FF can you (or anyone) show me an image that shows Arcade 1UP is using MAME or FBA, and not some GUI that looks like it?  Need to literally say MAME anywhere.  Thanks.


All the info you could ever want including screen captures,  boot logs, etc...

Have fun.

I'll just say this.  We are the end consumer and can't help what they put on these machines.  While I have issues with the way they put mame on there I can't help it and I'm not going to rain on everyone's parade that wants to buy one nor am I going to let that hold me back if I ever decide to get one considering I would hack it anyway.  I appreciate Haze's enthusiasm, but man, it would be nice if we could have a single conversation about mame where he doesn't chime in and go on a tie raid.  Either you are the head mame dev or you aren't.  You can't really serve as it's sole representative if you aren't anymore than any of us can speak for every person on this side of the equation. 

I love ya man, but you've got to calm down about stuff that is out of your control.  Take it from me, it's bad for you.  Also please stop calling people names.  That's a real no-no in my book even though I've unfortunately done it myself a few times.  Try not to take that path.

Thanks for the info FF.  Just what I was looking for.  :applaud:
My pleasure.  They also mention a "Moo" commercial emulator.  I'm having trouble finding any info on that bad boy...

There's plenty of information in that reddit thread. If you buy a machine and hack it.

It would be nice if they started throwing some newer games on these. I was 90% there on a $168 Rampage cabinet but I went and replayed it and thatís a rough game thatís difficult to play now.

The Mortal Kombat games still hold up for the most part.  I think a cabinet with all the Metal Slugs on it would kill but that would require SNK to stop releasing over-priced worthless crap for a few minutes.  Games any newer than that would probably require a better processor, so it probably isn't going to happen.

If MK happens, thatíll be a big hit for sure.

I canít help but think golden tee is going to be a dud. The versions they are releasing stink. At least, if itís the versions I think they are.

The other pictures of the street fighter cocktail show some SNK fighters on it, like Fatal Fury. Prototype cab so they can put whatever they want on there , doesnt mean it'll be on the retail cab.

Eh, once it's up on the pedestal it's actually reasonably comfortable to play.  Controls feel a little cheap but they work.  Monitor looks nice.

They are  a great size for small kids, but I don't even own a chair low enough to play comfortably on one.  Had to do a lot of play testing, and man was my back hurting.  Probably should have built a riser before I started.

The kids over the age of 5 were playing it sitting on the floor until we put the pedestal under it.  The factory height on those things is ridiculous.

watching a recent interview with the Tastemakers CEO revealed these:
----------------------------------------
1 Costco will be selling units again, not sure if it will be the 6-1

2 All the new titles will be limited runs, just like last years titles.
However, with so-called 'fixed' units coming out, like street fighter 2,
and rampage with stereo->mono downmix, not sure how that will work

3 Customer service will improve in February, which shouldn't be too hard,
considering how poor it is now

4 Eventually they will have a webstore, that MIGHT sell all the other accessories,
extra controls, extra artwork, panels, etc.

5 The Capcom cocktail table MIGHT be out 4th quarter this year

6 Karate Champ was picked as the main focus of the cabinet, because it was his
personal favorite, not Burgertime, even though that has more familiarity.

7 Defender wallcade came about due to requests, although Joust got a lot also.

I wonder if they left out Capcom vs SNK2 because they know it can't be emulated yet on mame.

Not to jump on the "arcade 1ups suck" bandwagon, because "suck" is too strong of a word, but IMO they are overpriced and under quality. A $150 price point would be solid, 200 tops. I say this because I AM interested in them. I have been checking Walmarts for them on clearance, and what I have found is display machines BEAT to heck. Real arcades didnt get beat up, and kids were rough on them. If they did, the controls lasted (decently anyways). These display arcade 1ups, the controls were just DESTROYED. That's very telling IMO.

I am in the Arcade 1 Up Facebook group (as well as the MAME builders group), and the hardcore fans of these machines I dont understand, tbh. People are putting SO much time, money, and effort into these things. I'm just like "why didnt you just do a MAME machine then?" That's what I dont get. Some of these things I've seen are pretty chinsey as well, like putting colored tape like for T molding... Sure it looks better, but that's a weak hack imo.

The casuals, I get. They buy one or two machines, they are quick, easy, simple. I get that. I also understand the guys that WANT a MAME machine, buy one of these, new controls, raspberry pi. I get that as well. I'm not knocking these machine for those people. But it's the people with ALL the machines, doing custom marquees, lights, etc. I'm just like "you know, you spent MORE money than doing a MAME, for less games, and your controls suck." That's what I dont understand. At that point, you are really just paying for the artwork on the machines, which you can get graphics done on a MAME...

Try lifting a full machine up 3 flights of stairs by your lonesome.  Then trying to get that cab in a small apartment/house, not to mention getting approval for a full size cabinet.

It is clear you do not have that problem but the 90% of us do. That is  why the 1Up cabs are so popular.  I guess it is obvious to you now?

But it's the people with ALL the machines, doing custom marquees, lights, etc. I'm just like "you know, you spent MORE money than doing a MAME, for less games, and your controls suck." That's what I dont understand. At that point, you are really just paying for the artwork on the machines, which you can get graphics done on a MAME...
Very well written, and you make very valid points. Thank you for this!  :cheers:

I'm just sharing what I e observed. If I thought they were amazing, or a better (less expensive) route than building (but still quality) I would say so. I just dont see it. Again if you want one or two, ok they might be for you. But IMO you would STILL be better off with a tankstick and a raspberry pi, and save money as well. Let alone a full machine blows arcade 1 ups away, not even close.

Try lifting a full machine up 3 flights of stairs by your lonesome.  Then trying to get that cab in a small apartment/house, not to mention getting approval for a full size cabinet.

It is clear you do not have that problem but the 90% of us do. That is  why the 1Up cabs are so popular.  I guess it is obvious to you now?

That's a fair point, weight and transport DOES add to their appeal.

Having said that, I'm a little shocked that you of all people wouldnt agree with me that a tankstick and a pi is a better buy than an arcade 1 up.

Although, I would like to add, in my first post I DID say that I see WHY someone would want one of these machines to turn into a MAME machine. So again, if you DO live in an apartment or moving is an issue, then YES I agree these would be a smart choice. But even then, one or two tops would be all you would need. Which my first post wasnt about THOSE people, it was for those that are buying ALL of them. Moving 6 Arcade 1 Ups wouldnt be much fun either...

Not to jump on the "arcade 1ups suck" bandwagon, because "suck" is too strong of a word, but IMO they are overpriced and under quality. A $150 price point would be solid, 200 tops. I say this because I AM interested in them. I have been checking Walmarts for them on clearance, and what I have found is display machines BEAT to heck. Real arcades didnt get beat up, and kids were rough on them. If they did, the controls lasted (decently anyways). These display arcade 1ups, the controls were just DESTROYED. That's very telling IMO.

I am in the Arcade 1 Up Facebook group (as well as the MAME builders group), and the hardcore fans of these machines I dont understand, tbh. People are putting SO much time, money, and effort into these things. I'm just like "why didnt you just do a MAME machine then?" That's what I dont get. Some of these things I've seen are pretty chinsey as well, like putting colored tape like for T molding... Sure it looks better, but that's a weak hack imo.

The casuals, I get. They buy one or two machines, they are quick, easy, simple. I get that. I also understand the guys that WANT a MAME machine, buy one of these, new controls, raspberry pi.

X arcade control panels are for a series of different consoles that we collectors prefer to emulators.  Some considerable expense, time and effort has gone into making these consoles (10 to be exact) interchangeable.  There is no other product out there that comes close and my x arcade panel is from 2002 ergo no USB.  To link with a pi alone would IMO be anti-productive.  I can make a lack arcade in 5 hours.  That is what a pi is for.

if they ever come out with their bartops and wall-cade units, it will be a lot easier for people that
complain about space issues to get those instead.

even the mini cocktail unit, might be ok for those that can't fit in a regular cocktail table.

of course, the projected  price on those is still pretty high also.

I take it, you are not from a one sided relationship, that deems non essential entertainment in the living room is grounds for 12 hour sofa detention. 

Let me tell you that 12 hour sofa detention hell is a real place you can be in if you try some crap like buying a working asteroids cocktail and replacing it for the coffee table next to her new sofa, without prior approval.

More strange responses from Arcade 1up on their official facebook page:
---------
Moe Howard When are stools going to be avail?

Quote
Arcade1UpOfficial Hi Moe, Thanks for reaching out to us! As of now, we do not plan on making stools! However, the new cabinets will be released throughout 2019! Keep checking back on our social channels for future news and updates!

Obviously, they didn't go to CES, and show off the short and tall stools, and mention prices right..

-----
Anyways, maybe they will come out later on.

==================================

Also, from their facebook page.

not that it means much more, but they also acknowledged that they MIGHT be coming out with the barcades (counter top)
and Wallcade versions possibly later this year.

Of course, it all depends on licensing, and whether they can get distributors, and get them working, etc, etc.

These would have upgrade monitors, and controls most likely.

I was told 2nd quarter 2019 for the cocktails, wallcades and bartops.  The two types of bar stools next month priced $30+.  Again subject to change.

Curious, though unsurprising if one thinks about it. This way, they'll get them back into bars at a fraction of the cost for everyone.

By many's definition (or perhaps delusion), relationship means 'even time in and consideration of domestic circumstances'. People at the outset of getting together do not sit down and write out their needs, wants, and things they don't need, compare them and stay or split based on it.  I have. Yet in my own experience with this, however motivated they have been, none have been able to hold up their side of things. Why have things half-way wrong when I can have them all the way right?

These versions of Golden Tee are the ones that have been available in MAME for a long time, right? They are terrible to play. It's 20 year old games that don't hold up well. I can only imagine someone is going to buy it thinking it's the Golden Tee they played at the tavern and then be surprised at how crummy it is.

anyone that sees the graphics knows what they are in for.

also, with the improved controls, that really won't be an issue as far
as playability goes.

the only thing the new ones have is maybe an extra button or two.

the gameplay is identical, so theres really no need for disappointment.

This isn't a Arcade1up thing, this is old ass Golden Tee vs new Golden Tee and the ability for average consumer to realize what they are getting. I think they think they'll be getting this: when in reality they are getting this:

I had Golden Tee available on my cabs, but it was terrible. We played Tiger Woods golf.

I like that they upgraded to a Happ Trackball, but I just think the game itself isn't all that great. It would've been cool if they threw on it Shuffleshot, Shuuz,  and\or World Class bowling.

@Locke141: you don't know Haze was banned from MAMEWorld in early days, I see.......

Neither would you as the thread has been sent to the ether.  David had an episode (or creative differences) with several hacks contributors (if you could qualify them as :lol  ) of mame, which I support and agree with him about.  There was a bit of hoo har.  Yet we had another coder contributor (whom is a credit to the gaming community and is a legend in his own right) that took exception to David's suggestions and it was a consensus that David should experience an administrative time out, and replaced as coordinator.  It wasn't David's fault, the quality of work the some of the team produced was quite poor.  IMHO this has not changed to some extent and we can see why there is a major fork in the project.  In David's defense he did not do anything wrong, and he was treated unfairly, but mameworld is home to a toxic forum which is well known.  They love me there.  :laugh2:

David enjoys an immense respect from the emulation community and his work lately has been exceptional, and I do not blame him for his comments on this site.  The main problem with mame now is best summed up as "you cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."  If David was left to his own devices, and was still coordinator, we would have seen a better project than what it is now.   If anything, that is the tragedy.

I'm sure of all these platitudes will get a reply...as he has me on some sort of RSS feed....

Small update for New York Toy Fair 2019:

=============================
Golden Tee - Lighted marquee and custom riser will be in a deluxe package that costs more than regular.

Space Invaders will be a limited release, so if you want one, get it quickly when it comes out.
Pac-Man sold so well, that they will still be selling it this year.

Final fight should be out mid-march.

Looks like arcade 1up is getting ready for the Space Invaders release.

Someone found a placeholder webpage at Walmart, similar to the
one for pac-man before it appeared on their site.

Id have no problem with these things if the build quality was halfway passable. It's not however.   :blowup:

From the latest Toy Fair 2019 video:
----------
The Arcade1Up part of their business is now "9 figures" (that means it's at least a $100,000,000 business).

Space Invaders will "hit the floor in about 20 days" (which would put it in-store around 3/9, if it's 20 days from the time of this video during Toy Fair '19). They believe they'll sell out around May.

Talking about Space Invaders, he said "Limited Edition Series," implying there will be more "Limited Edition" units, at some point.

Mortal Kombat will "rotate in" after Space Invaders around May... but the "rotate in" implies to me that it will depend on shelf space availability pending Space Invaders sales. That would make timing pretty loose.

Golden Tee also mentioned to be coming in May.

Final Fight "in stores in the next 60 day" (from date of this video) would put it potentially as far out as mid-April, in some locations.

Counter-cades "under $200 retail" and available "in May/June."

The Pac-Man wall-cade will actually be "Pac-Man and Galaga." (So, they're mixing some titles into these, now.)

Aesthetically, itís the best, most well thought out cabinet of the bunch. I donít even mind the flat control panel on space invaders because thatís how the stand up was. The game selection doesnít do anything for me though.

I wish they had used buttons instead of a joystick.

Overall, itíll look good in the game room but wouldnít get much play.

I will agree with you that of all the games, this one did the best job with the artwork. Too bad they didnít stay authentic with the controls.

Iím curious how well this will do.

the controls are authentic with the taito version.

if you want to be like midway, just mod it, remove the joystick,
and add buttons. probably have to tweak the ROM though.

I can't see having to modify the rom at all. Left is left and right is right. I just wish it had 2 buttons, but I do like the white joystick ball.

Details about the Space Invaders Cabinet from BerryBerry

https://www.reddit.com/r/Arcade1Up/comments/ay1chz/observations_about_the_new_space_invaders_cabinet/

Quote
The control panel now has the same printed+clearcoated vinyl as the side art, marquee, etc. Should last much longer than previous CP art. (But might be prone to the art being peeled up by "little hands". Best to leave to protector installed.)I think I prefer the original 1st-gen CP art (inkjetted directly on CP) after applying 3+ coats of sprayed-on clear, vs the new vinyl-applied-to-CP 2nd-gen CP art. Time will tell which ends up lasting longer. But as-shipped, 2nd-gen coming with a free protector is vastly improved over 1st-gen as shipped.

Protector is included in the box. It's a good fit. Holes aren't 100% centered, but are pretty close.

Control panel: https://i.redd.it/hpz427f4sjk21.jpg
Control panel w/ protector (film still applied): https://i.redd.it/7lt3l4wcsjk21.jpg
Joystick photos: https://i.redd.it/dqhkh22vrjk21.png

Still not real T-molding, but is the same pretty-good banding/edging used previously.(Clarification - I've looked at the control panel only. Haven't pulled the cabinet sides out of the box yet.)

Now a Sanwa-style joystick w/ 5-wire plug. Only has two microswitches installed on the circuit board, but all 5 wires are installed. Nice and crisp feel. Control panel joystick hole is now round (not a slot) and joystick has 2-way restrictor plate on the back. Easier to upgrade to 4/8-way stick - hole doesn't have to be enlarged. (Galaga had a CP slot and a regular joystick plate

The issue with the first round of 1Ups was never that they didn't look nice in pics. The problems started when people got them home. $300 for a single poorly emulated game in a poorly sized cab with questionable build quality. From the info we have seen to date, it's hard to say if the real problems have been addressed in Wave 2.

The competition for these things has always been the various bartop kits with cheap PCs or Raspberry PIs. On paper, it might seem like buying a new 1 up bartop saves you time over buying a kit but I'm not so sure. 1 UPS are a flat-pack diy build item. Not that different (in terms of effort) to assembling a bartop kit.

Also, all those "innovative" space saving ideas are BS. We already have a better space saving option - a multi-game mame cab. You can take every game you ever owned and put it on a hard drive inside a bartop cab. Selling machines with just one game is what takes up space....

Unless they make one with an SD card slot so we can add our own roms, they'll never get any of my money. $200 or even $150 for one emulated game is horrible value.

I don't know which cabinet had a single poorly emulated game. Which one was that?

No one should be surprised by the size. They have display units for all to touch/feel and the boxes are only 4 feet long, so they aren't hiding anything. If anyone doesn't like the size, that's purely an opinion based thing. Tons of folks seem to like them. The difference between a bartop on a stand, or a Arcade1up on a riser is a minor one to me.

Questionable build quality... again, not sure where you are getting your information. The build on them is sufficient. Not sure what else you are looking for. It's not as rock solid as a golden tee cabinet even though both of them use lock/cam style construction.

Not that different (in terms of effort) to assembling a bartop kit.
You are way off the mark on this and it's clear you've never assembled an Arcade1up or a bartop kit. I've done both multiple times. I can assemble an Arcade1up in about 30 minutes. It took me a little over an hour the first time. From opening the box to playing a game in an hour. That's hard to beat. Bartop kits, well, that's definitely a project.

Arcade1up has there problems and I'm not looking to be their champion, but I didn't want your post full of inaccuracies left unchallenged.

Which had one poorly emulated game = most of them. Having two or three versions of Street Fighter 2 does not even come close to offering the same variety as a mame cab.

Poor build quality. Where do I get my info. I've used one and 90% of the feedback says the same. They are made cheap, thin walls, light, not sturdy or arcade-like. Peeling decals and poor sizing.

The emulation on those "Wave 1" 1Ups sucked and looked like sh*t on the screen. Saying it is "adequate" is a matter of opinion but they are certainly not adequate for me and a whole lot of others. More importantly, you get far better results doing your own mame pc.

Sure, there are always going to be people with low standards, those who don't care about quality or authenticity. For example... you... but so what.

There are plenty of bartop kits these days that are designed for easy assembly. Some don't even need screws. Putting a pc and monitor inside is quick. It would take a little more time to attach and wire the joystick but that's a small price to for getting thousands of games vs one.

All that makes the 1Ups are very poor choice for a home arcade.

Appreciate your response.  :)

Which had one poorly emulated game = most of them. Having two or three versions of Street Fighter 2 does not even come close to offering the same variety as a mame cab.
2 of the cabs had less than the typical 4 game offering. Pacman and Street Fighter had multiple versions of the same game, but it's debatable if you would consider the cabinet only having 1 game. No one was talking about it compared to a mame cabinet.

Poor build quality. Where do I get my info. I've used one and 90% of the feedback says the same. They are made cheap, thin walls, light, not sturdy or arcade-like. Peeling decals and poor sizing.
That 90% number is clearly pulled from thin air. They are made inexpensively, but they will do fine for average Joe home user. I probably wouldn't want them on a route, but I'm going to keep a couple in my house. Peeling decals is definitely a side effect of the inexpensive manufacturing. No excuses for them there, but kudos for providing a solution. "Poor sizing" is a negative to you, but many people actually prefer it. I'm not one of those people, but I wouldn't consider a cabaret a poor sized cabinet, so I don't consider an Arcade1up on a riser a poor sized cabinet either.

The emulation on those "Wave 1" 1Ups sucked and looked like sh*t on the screen. Saying it is "adequate" is a matter of opinion but they are certainly not adequate for me and a whole lot of others. More importantly, you get far better results doing your own mame pc.
It would've been nice if they put some scan line options, or built in some scan lines, to try to help the authenticity, but the emulation is just about perfect on most of the games. As good as any cabinet using mame. I mean... its' using mame, lol. What other emulation do you want? The games that had actual emulation problems is Street Fighter and Gauntlet. The rest are fine. I think you might be mixing up things - like the LCD vs CRT discussion.

It's interesting you would say that you would get better results using mame because I've been contemplating swapping out my mame PC's for all-in-one boards. I like the idea of powering off my system without corrupting it. I think a solid state system will be more reliable than a PC. Using mame on a PC isn't all upside with no downsides. Configuration can be a challenge.

Sure, there are always going to be people with low standards, those who don't care about quality or authenticity. For example... you... but so what.
If you cared about authenticity, you wouldn't even be talking about mame. I've owned plenty of mame cabinets and real deal arcades. I found what is important to me, and they must differ from what is important to you.

There are plenty of bartop kits these days that are designed for easy assembly. Some don't even need screws. Putting a pc and monitor inside is quick. It would take a little more time to attach and wire the joystick but that's a small price to for getting thousands of games vs one.
at this point, I have to question whether you've ever built a mame machine - applied art, installed controls, wired a CP, installed a front end and configured everything. This isn't even a real comparison. I love my mame machines and arcade games, but I've also enjoyed the Arcade1ups for different reasons. Not much different than your love affair with the 12" Street Fighter. It's a hunk of junk as far as I'm concerned, because it isn't playable. But hey, if you like it, good for you.

All that makes the 1Ups are very poor choice for a home arcade.

Of course this is your opinion and you are entitled to it. We'll just have to agree to disagree. Lots of people seem to be happy to them.  :dunno

Feel free to have the last word. I don't see the point of us having a back and forth when in reality, we both enjoy arcade nostalgia, but disagree on one of our many retro offerings we have these days.

will start another thread for countercades.
Why? There are enough A1Up threads

Agreed. Just keep them all in one thread. The titles read like horror movie names. Waiting for Arcade1Up 2: The Revenge of The Spinnercade any day now.

$200 seems like a lot.  I'll just go ahead and make my own for $400.

What are the dimensions of these things?

Not sure yet. But the monitor is smaller than the full sized ones.

The controls should be full sized though.

I'll be getting the Dig Dug one, and thats it, since that's not going to be
released as a full size one. Dig Dug 2 is a lesser known conversion thats
on there also.

There's rumors of a Ms. Pac-Man countercade also, we'll see.

From the latest Facebook post, looks like Golden Tee with the extras will

only be sold at Gamestop. So maybe other places will sell a regular one.

"Arcade1UpOfficial The current version of Golden Tee with the light up marquee and custom riser is a game stop exclusive."

Hard pass on the crummy versions of golden tee.

considering used ones go for $1200-$2000
and the new units are $3500 and up, this is a bargain.

real happ trackball, and improved buttons, lighted marquee,
slanted screen, and 4 licensed games, with a themed riser.

pass for you,  but enthuasists are waiting for it.

The problem is the game. Golden Tee 99 is awful and hasnít aged well. I can only imagine the disappointed looks if I tell folks I have Golden Tee and surprise them with a 20 year old version.

Iím happy with the controls, marquee, etc.

These versions of Golden Tee are the ones that have been available in MAME for a long time, right? They are terrible to play. It's 20 year old games that don't hold up well. I can only imagine someone is going to buy it thinking it's the Golden Tee they played at the tavern and then be surprised at how crummy it is.
anyone that sees the graphics knows what they are in for.

also, with the improved controls, that really won't be an issue as far
as playability goes.

the only thing the new ones have is maybe an extra button or two.

the gameplay is identical, so theres really no need for disappointment.

This isn't a Arcade1up thing, this is old ass Golden Tee vs new Golden Tee and the ability for average consumer to realize what they are getting. I think they think they'll be getting this: when in reality they are getting this:

I had Golden Tee available on my cabs, but it was terrible. We played Tiger Woods golf.

I like that they upgraded to a Happ Trackball, but I just think the game itself isn't all that great. It would've been cool if they threw on it Shuffleshot, Shuuz,  and\or World Class bowling

people that look at the years will know the graphics aren't going be to as good,

unless they're blind.

I played the original Golden Tee around 1989 so I personally have an affinity for the older lower quality graphics.  I have nothing really against these A1Ups cause I've never been able to touch one outside of its box I just enjoy building cabinets more than playing them.

I guess the corners such places have them in have nothing better to go in. I love GT '97 and '99. I rarely play golf games, but those are my go-tos.

Iíd do that! He may walk away with a different opinion of the cabinet or maybe I would, but either way Iím down.

I think 19Ē is totally do-able. I like my full size MKII better Iím sure. But I sold that and would like to play those games again with the proper button configuration.

Perhaps that, And bolt it to a sand filled riser to make it more stable... My concerns would be the give and take of physics, The rigidity would most likely accelerate it's demise and the cab would just fall apart at the seams....But again it's just a toy for a 10 year old, so the stress would be minimal, until they outgrew it and just bought a real one with their lawnmower money.

Best Buy will be selling the Golden Tee cabinet, so its not a Gamestop exclusive,
despite them and Arcade 1UP saying that.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/arcade1up-golden-tee-arcade-cabinet-with-riser-black/6333626.p?skuId=6333626



Same price though, no reductions yet.

I tested one of these out at Walmart and I was impressed. Its pretty cool. Like a step between a toy and an actual arcade. If I had a little cousin or niece who wanted an arcade, I'd buy one as a gift. I wouldn't by one for myself with actual real life arcade games and customized Mame machines attainable.

You cannot tell me its even close to the same. If they were 1:1 size, slim, with real arcade controls and good emulation . . well, I'd still want my own custom machine and software . . but we could talk about them being viable substitutions.

Those risers are laughable. I'd need 2.

For those of you who aren't a member of the Facebook group, this could be of benefit. The one thing I think the Arcade1ups have in it's favor is size (it's also one of the biggest detractors). In the first pic is an adult playing Pacman and while the cabinet is definitely shorter than a normal cabinet, this doesn't look unreasonably uncomfortable. I don't think it's too bad.

I also think some rooms are just better candidates for smaller cabinets. This could be cabarets, or poker machine conversions, but the A1ups fill out the space sufficiently. 2nd pic.

For your Veterans of BYOAC, the last pic is kind of funny. It seems some of them are going through the same growing pains. It just goes to show, it doesn't really matter what size the arcade is, someone wants to put way too big of a CP on it.

Oh, and the only thing Iím going to add is that every single one of those cabinets is on a riser, which is extra.

Oh, I didn't even pick up on that,  :dunno....As my last obsevations, Used parts for these junkers are finding there way into mainstream outlets, Gotta know what your looking at.  #2, All that wall bling is not a substitute for authentic, in the same space (and possibly the same money) you could have the real thing...#3, A real machine commands the room with the drop of a coin, an experience Walmart does not sell....And finally #4, I don't know what Arcade1 F/book group is, But sounds incredibly lame, Good place for them to hang I guess.

Just for the record, the "wall bling" is something arcade 1up is doing right.  Those pacman/ghost light ups are awesome and don't cost a whole lot.... haven't been able to find them in the wild yet.

As far as improvements go on the Generation 2 cabinets, the plan is to include laminate deck control protectors
with the machines, like Space Invaders, and the upcoming Final Fight.

For older machines of the first wave, they are putting a new laminate on the control panels, but the
results are mixed after a couple of weeks it seems.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Arcade1Up/comments/b7r6tv/gen_ii_units_with_laminated_deck_durability_update/




You're still better off, buying  a deck protector, if they are available through the store.

maybe, but improved monitor. lighted marquee, included themed riser, and near arcade trackball
and buttons. along with improved control panel.

so it's always the dilemma, as quality improves, so does price.

people complain about the quality, and other features, and then they improve and raise the cost,

people then complain about the cost.

I get what you are saying, but considering I can make a decent arcade cab using real controls and 3/4" plywood for around $500-600 (sans artwork) and I don't have the benefit of buying materials in bulk, I think they could do a little better with the price.  The $300 they tried to charge for the original models seems about right.

you didn't include licensing, or getting an actual arcade board in that cost.

and many people, even now, think that $299 is still way too much even for multiple games that
they offered.

The retailers did that to themselves -- If they had stuck to a price rather than having them selling for any where from $399 to $75 for the same cab at the same time in different stores people would have gotten used to the price and most likely paid it without much complaining but when people are buying them at $299 and others are getting the same thing for $75 or $150 it's going to lead to people thinking they are paying too much.

A1U didn't help that situation either with all of their marketing pointing to "Real Arcade experience and parts " and deceptive picture taking to make them look more normal sized by never showing the full arcade and having the risers attached but not showing those in the pics or using 5'2" tall actors - so those pre-ordering did not really know what they were getting which resulted in a lot of returns and negative press at release.

i agree with a lot of what you're saying, but that was more a retailer issue.
walmart took the liberty of their managers, where some stores overstocked like crazy, and
then wanted to get rid of them.

other stores, only got a few units, so kept the prices high.

the truth is somewhere else, as gamestop, and other retailers announced the higher prices, and
were undercut with walmarts $299, so they had to match it.

i agree they are priced too high for the substandard and subpar quality of the monitors and controls,
and should be about half the price they normally go for,

now though, with the improvements they've made, they are letting people decide whether they want
to pay for the improved and augmented marquee, controls, riser, etc.

the $300 price for space invaders hasn't deterred people that wanted that, so i don't think that $500 for
Golden Tee will scare people off that want that also.

Final Fight should be out shortly, so we'll see what the reviews on that are like.

Boards based on that chipset run around 20-30 bucks retail... aliexpress is plastered with them.  As for licensing, they got the "toy" license and considering plug and plays run around 30 bucks I'm guessing it isn't super expensive per unit.  It's all speculation of course, but I'm guestimating that might add 20-30 bucks to the cost.

I'd think $20 - $30 for the licensing of 2 to 4 games or even the 12 on the 12 in 1 is stretching it - I'd think more in the $2 - $3 per game seeing that they can sell the retail games on sites like Steam etc. for less than $5 a game.

Weíre still arguing about these damn things.  Nice.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Yeah. Apparently you should hate a business that tries to reproduce licensed arcades because the business is only in it to make money. Unheard of!

Early Mortal Kombat preview, of the cabinet.
Looks like the improvements are occurring, control panel protector, bat tops, and more.

Joysticks look better but they still have several of the flaws of series one... the mono speaker on the frikkin control panel, the deck protector that goes around the buttons instead of under them (no excuse this time as it's coming from the factory) ectÖ  Baby steps I guess... the artwork has been altered to fit the profile better instead of just cropping it and bat tops for a fighting game... who'd have thunk it?  I wonder if they are going to give a free upgrade to those poor chumps that bought the street fighter cab. 

I wonder if the new pcb actually has some improvements, it's just to lower costs or what.  It seems like the old one would have been able to handle mk.

Mortal Kombat supports the hidden EJB menus:


Why wouldnt it? Its emulating the arcade ROMs.  In other news water is wet.

i didn't know water was wet.

arcade 1up uses the proprietary MOO emulator going forward.
their emulation isn't that great.

NONE of their other games support difficulty settings, or changing them.

Your quote-fu is as bad as your "news" reporting.   Their emulator isn't supporting accessing the normal operator menu, there just so happens to be an alternate way to make in game adjustments.  Its not the same thing.

Malenko is right... all MOO does is basically deny you access to the service button.  Since the EJB menus aren't accessed that way it would require altering the game code to block them and let's face it, a1up isn't willing or able to do that.  So yeah, you can do a cheat code that you can do on any emulator running the game.. also the sky is typically blue.

The countercades are listed at home depots site, under 'tastemakers':

https://www.homedepot.com/s/tastemakers?NCNI-5

They have them for release at the same dates as gamestop, however,
gamestop has pushed back the dates on Dig Dug, and Centipede to 5/22

Home Depot has them listed as earlier release.

Walmart announcing the countercades at the same pricepoint $199

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Dig-Dug-Dig-Dug-2-Counter-Arcade-Arcade1UP-815221026889/395977270

Still not sure about the button layout for Dig Dug, some pictures show 1 white button,
some show 2, with 1 button on either side.

Will have to be modded.

MK2 is scheduled to come out in May.

Guess you need to learn what a calendar is.

It's called breaking the street date.

i have no clue. but it's not obviously off topic
and not arcade 1up related.


but the countercades are out.

the pac-man one uses the same basic board, but has a separate video connector,
to interface with the smaller screen.

the video review on youtube has the breakdown. they don't show any gameplay
for pac n pal though.

expecting the Dig Dug shortly, and see what they did with that.

You're right, it'd be dumb to put MKII mini arcades for sale the same day MK11 drops.  :dizzy:

I don't hate the machines. I don't hate their users. What I do hate is having 2 threads that constantly get bumped with useless "updates" any time someone farts in the vicinity of an A1Up machine.

maybe if people stopped replying with off topic posts, then you wouldn't have
to post how much you hate reading a topic you have no interest in.

in other news, the final fight brickseek link:

https://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker/?sku=593950880




too bad, there's no other arcade related news for anyone else to report anything on.
guess this will have to do.

-1up  Let me give you some advice on how you do a "news" thread. 

1.  Just make two or three blank posts at the beginning of a topic. 
2.  As news comes in, fill those posts, only saving pics and stuff for the latest news and compiling the rest into some links. 
3.  Profit?

it also works, if i had actually started the thread.

which i didn't..

------------------------------------------------------
so final fight reviews are coming in.

so far it seems like the updates on the controls are decent, but not great.

the buttons might be the same. the emulation is about on par with what you expect.

there is a deck protector included,

again, it's probably better to mod it, since adding games natively is much harder to do.

the processor, and sound are still the same, mono.
the monitor is the same quality, which is low.
the artwork might be printed slightly better.

So make a new thread called "I promise I wont make another A1up thread after this" and put your RSS feed in it.


All the hardware is the same except the joystick shafts. Same mobo, same A13 CPU same everything. Even the same side art from the demo model that was stolen from a website instead of getting the factory art files from Midway.
