Well its Soul Calibur II, if that matters. I had that for GameCube a while back and remember it being awesome on there too however.

I've got some fighting game goodness. All I need is a multi Midway fighter cab and I'd be set.


viewtopic.php?f=28&t=38040


Capcom Big Blue : Capcom CPS2 18-1 PCB. No emulation just hacked roms

Neo Geo 4-Slot : 131-1 Cart and a bunch of common MVS carts

Virtua Fighter 2 : Awesome game, massive waste of space

Welcome too the forums. I also love fighting arcade cabs. I have a Neo Geo MVS 2 slot and a Capcom Big Blue. I just got my Naomi CF reader for my Big Blue, now I can have lighting fast swaps between GGXXAC, SFZ3^, CvS2, and MvC2.

On another note. I have been wanting to start the Racketboy Cab Club for some time. Just a thread with every-ones cabs to check out. Maybe I will take some more pics and get that started.

Thats awesome guys. I would love a Neo-Geo machine, as I adore the Samurai Shodown/King of Fighters series (not to mention all the awesome shooters on the system).

I've got a full restored NeoGeo MVS cab with a 120 in 1 Multicart and a Ms Pacman/Galaga cocktail cabinet. The only other cabinet I would want to add to this part of my collection is a candy cabinet (egret 2?) with some Capcom boards including darkstalkers, street fighter, VS series games, and maybe a multi board (blue elf?).

Ive had about 20 over the years. Most were Street Fighter 2 cabs I bought for $25-50, fixed/cleaned, and sold for $300-400. I lusted after one cab the entire time, an Astro City, and finally have one - that EllertMichael showed to me for $300 less than 30 minutes from my parents house. I do not have any fighting games anymore, but am in talks to buy Tatsunoko vs Capcom.

Right now I have a 4 slot MVS, the Astro City, and a Nintendo Vs. But the Astro is 2L6B so there wont be many fighting games going into it, besides my arcade love is more for coop games and classics. Actually the MVS is being sold to Ack as soon as I get enough time in Atlanta to transport it to his apartment.

One cab is about like running a PC and a TV, nothing to bad that you don't already have running really.

Please tell me this runs in 15k, I have been trying to find out for ever!!!

So far the only guy I know that has one says 31k only. If I can run this in 15k I will buy this for sure. :D

I need this game too!!!

So I asked the guy who Ive been talking to about this, and he confirmed that it is 31k only. And since I do not know what monitor I have in my candy I have it on hold until later this month when I find out.

If it falls through, I will be getting Viletims adapter and slotting my spare wii into the cab for that purpose.

I own an Egret II & an MVS-U4-25

Before I got those I used to own the "Tall Boy" Neo Geo Big Red 4-slot Rev. 3.

Most likely a 29" Nanao MS8 duel-sync 15/24 kHz.
But you should check! You might get lucky, as some have the MS9 ;)
