I'm From Tassie.
and from what I've seen, or more specifically HAVEN'T seen, I think I may be the first Tasmanian to build a mame Cab (though technically mine's in mid-build at the moment) - at the very least if someone else HAS beaten me to it, they haven't got it online, not that I've been able to find.... so untill it's proven otherwise, I'm claiming the bragging rights  ;D

Good stuff Bluntman,

I haven't seen any other South Aussies on this site but looking at the poll someone else ticked SA, when I deal with someone in the arcade industry and they ask me what I want that for and I tell them about my Mame cabinet I usually get told they have a friend who has one, so there must be plenty of South Aussies out there.

G'day Happy Dude,

Yes you are right A.C.T. and Northen Territory arn't states I did use the word "State" in my subject line but in my message I was very careful to use the word "part". Anyway good to see another Aussie on this forum. Just wondering Happy_Dude have you made any controls or perhaps a cabinet if so let us know and if you can show us some pics. I have to get some pics of my cabinet on here but it's just a cheap conversion till I can make my dream cabinet.

Where abouts in Adelaide are you from? How old are you? And can I get a copy of some of your skins?

Well, there are about 5 or 10 Mame cabinets out there for everyone that actually has a website.

Hey

Another South Aussie here (Go the Power)

I'm currently building my first cab, I went with a cocktail due to the the smaller size.  Actually just ordered the controls yesterday from Ozstick, so can't wait to get that prototype cp working to test out mame as it should be played!

You port supporters would have to be happy they're on top of the ladder and have a very easy game this week.  Should be a big percentage boost as you belt the Bulldogs.  

Freo on the other hand - have a feeling they'll get beaten by Collingwood which is not what I want  >:(

NSW here.  AFL sux......just kidding.

[rant mode]
No offence and I have nothing against the guy, he is in fact quite helpful and everyones entitled to make a living.  However, why would you buy stuff from OZ Stick when you can get them from the US or UK including shipping cheaper?

For the price he charges for a J-Pac for example I can almost get 2 directly from Ultimarc including air mail to Australia, which takes less than a week usually.  A mate and I just bought a whole lot of stuff from Ultimarc and including shipping it came in around A$600.  The same gear from OZ-Stick not including shipping would have cost just under A$800 (not taking into account the sticks I'm getting from Ultimarc are T-Sticks not J-Sticks).

Let's say you're converting a Jamma cab for MAME and you want a 2 player CP with 6 buttons each plus player 1 & 2 start buttons using a J-Pac, Arcade VGA card and J-Sticks.

OZ Stick  A$             Ultimarc  US$
$432.70                   $226.60

Not including shipping from OZ Stick (but including shipping from Ultimarc) the Aussie $ would have to be at 52c for it to be worthwhile getting from OZ Stick.  At present its between 75c and 80c so the cost of getting the same parts from the UK is around A$310, saving you over A$120.

I'm just wondering what thought process is being used is all.  I mean a couple of weeks ago a J-Pac sold on eBay here in Austrlia for over $100 when you can get one shipped from Andy for less than that and know that it is brand new (less if you get ps2 rather than usb).

With the Aussie dollars doing so well now, Ozstick isn't as competitive as it was a while back. I think when I ordered my Ipac4 from Ultimarc it worked out slightly cheaper than if I bought it from Ozstick, I'm sure Ultimarc would be much cheaper now.

Anway, it's good to see so many Aussies on this site.

Agreed, OZ Stick probably just need to have a look at their pricing with the new exchange rates.

Hey, there's alot more out there than have posted here though (from people I've spoken to).

Hi All!

Some people might recognise my username wrx2hot4u from ebay
I agree microwrx, Ozstick is very hepfull but way to over priced. Andy from Ultimarc would have to be 1 of the most helpfull guys I have dealt with since starting my Mame hobbie. Currently I have 2 machines, 4 player challenger machine and a 6 slot Neo Geo Machine.

This is a very helpfull website by the way RetroBorg, I see your all so a member of arcade-80s.

As to Ozstick yes I bought from Andy direct after comparing prices though I will restate the exchange rate is a LOT better now so OzStick needs to review his pricing stat.

I noticed you were logged in to the arcade-80s forum site when I was last on, it's not a bad site for Aussies who own real Arcade machines, I own a Leisure & Allied Galaxian Cocktail Table, my wife has lost interest in it since I have my 4 player MAME cabinet and with space at a premium I reluctantly have to sell it. I thought I might put a Galaga PCB board in it as they get much higher bids on EBay or perhaps one of those 3 in 1 boards that have Galaga included.

Anyway, for any Aussies interested in this site here is the ink: http://www.arcade-80s.com/forum/index.php?

When I bought my stuff for the cab the aussie dollar wasn't doing too well at all compared with the US but as OzStick didn't actually have the joysticks and such that I wanted to use - I went overseas.  If I had've waited a year then I would have saved a heap of money with today's exchange rate.  I'm sure OzStick is looking at his prices but if he bought those overseas parts in bulk when the dollar wasn't great you can't really expect him to drop his price and take a loss.  There are plenty of people out there that will pay a higher price as it's much easier to deal local.

Ultimarc - Order and pay by credit card online and delivery to my door in around a week (I have had 1 order from Andy within 4 days).

OZ Stick - Order online, pay by direct deposit or COD, delivery to my door in 2-5 days.

Depends what your idea of easier is.

I think cdbrown is probably right that OzStik might of bought a lot of stock when the Aussie dollar wasn't doing so well.

The fact is we will always be the poorer cousins over here in Australia when it comes to arcade type stuff, look how cheap arcade cabinets, PCB's, monitors etc are on Ebay in the US to what they go for here in Australia on Ebay.

Part of the reason why stuff is cheaper in the US than here is Leisure & Allied held the main licenses for a lot of our classic games here is Australia but they only imported the PCB's and electronics from Japan and made up their own cabinets here in Australia. Unfortunately they made these cabinets out of chipboard compared to plywood that they used in the US, which means a lot of our cabinets didn't survive over time and also the artwork on our cabinets were different to that used on US cabinets for some games. I have to admit though that the Leisure & Allied cocktail cabinets are a superior design to that I have seen used in the US.

I agree, our cocktail machines are a much better design than the US ones.  I have seen several UK tables that are the same as ours though so I wonder if LAI took their design from a table offered over there.

I have a great 4 player cab I recently bought at auction with a working PCB for $250 which was made by Galaxy.  It's all plywood and built absolutely brilliantly, I love it.  Just ordered more gear from Ultimarc to convert it to MAME (J-Pac, I still want to use it for real PCB's).

I've also got an old LAI Space Invaders cab which I got at the same auction.  One of those old B&W reflection ones.  It works but the cab is one of the particle board ones and is falling apart, literally.  The side art was ripped off years ago by the looks so I'm just gonna scrap it.  It's a shame but it really is bad, every time I move it a trail of particle board chips is left behind.

I wish cabs were easy to come by...I decided to make mine from scratch, starting with a control panel, then moving up to a stand etc...Importing parts is definately the only way to go.

Sure cabs are harder to come by in australia with LAI having a virtual monopoly. My LAI made cab is plywood luckily and damn heavy. It's got 2 wheels and 2 handles and I still needed help to move it in LOL!

In Sydney you can buy cabs starting from http://www.ableamusements.com.au/ and the working cabs with games start at $250.00 from memory. Luckily I bought my working cab at auction for $75.00 though =) Pity it's only once a year.

Checked out your control panel stand Zzap, nicely done, I guess it's very similar to mine, mine is the front part to a Gottlieb showcase cabinet with just a little shelf I tacked on the back with a 21 inch pc monitor sitting on it, unfortunately no trackball like yours. I don't seem use the 4 players very often and I guess when I think about it, don't use 2 players all that often either, I guess I'm not really into the fighting games that much. Really wish I had a trackball for Centipede and Missile Command, I guess I'll have to wait till I can afford to build my dream cab.

You got to have priorities, surely playing arcade games are more important than your wife having a baby. ;D

I will give you $50 for TMNT. :P

LOL, very funny retroborg! $50? I'll take it! and while your there how about I bend over and take it from behind LOL just kidding  ;)
Im not selling everything exactly, im keeping my Neo Geo 6 slot machine, maybe but i haven't decided on the 26" Cab yet.I spent 4 hours last night re wiring and soldering.
Reason: My trade is telecommunications, I cant stand how
dodgy theses arcade places wire up there machines. If anyone knows what im taking about ive platted all cabling and tied down everything. You tip my machine upside down and shake and you wouldn't hear a sound :) thats if you could lift about 110kgs. For someone who doesn't do arcade machines all day and how neat i do it Im worried about the what smarts the qualified guys have hahahaha.

Any comments on that??? Im sure there would be??? It could be said im a little to picky when it comes to cabling. Owell im a Pro what can i say lol and Modest too!
