It has been a few days since I last posted, mostly because I've actually been playing the machine. Some great games on the MVS 161 in 1 cart like Metal Slug and Aero Fighters.
A mountain of fighters on there but I'm too old to start learning off moves. I peaked with learning moves for Tekken 2 and 3 back in the day.
Did pick up a couple of bits and pieces but haven't been put to any real use yet (apart from item 4, brrrrr!).
1. Genuine replacement Taito parts - Coin entry bezel and Insert Coin 50 Yen sticker. The coin entry isn't grey like the original one on the AWSD but supposedly that's the only colour the replacement comes in.
2. Carriage bolts for the 2 player panel whenever I can source one.
3. A 2 player control panel that isn't suitable :-( . I got a 2L12B panel from starcab in France but the panel that arrived was not as per their website image. The Start buttons are off-centre to the right. The Atomiswave 2 player overlay needs the button to be centred exactly.The hunt continues.....
4. An Arcade Otaku emblazoned beanie courtesy of member SuperTurbo. Thanks man!
Finally, I also received something I didn't want - monitor issues. Will go into more detail in a future post once I figure out what's going on.
