Put one of these together at a party. Cabinet and stand together in an hour. Big hit with the kids.

Cool story bro.

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 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.

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.
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

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.

later

UK and EU prices are per vendor.  Arcadeworld is tipped to be a vendor.  Hoping for $$$ prices?  Good luck.

I think that was a ďGas, grass, or assĒ sticker I saw a photo of and posted. Iíd prefer ass myself.

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...

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...

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...
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.

If youíre worried about weigh, space, and transport, a Tankstick and Pi is your best bet.

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.

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.

Why would you have to get approval for a cab in an apartment?....or are you mixing in spouse approval?


@yotsuya: yes, that rings a bell. Perhaps I misunderstood the context.

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?
3d

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.

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.

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?

unless you go through the legality issues with adding coin doors, and registering them for pay, not going to happen.

also, without internet connectivity, they are useless in bars.

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.
