So a bit of a back story on the recent pickup.

I first saw it on Belgian eBay back in 2002. I was so intrigued with what I was seeing (I honestly didn't know what it was) that I took the action of saving the really crappy picture that eBay would let you post back then.

Here's that picture, I put it onto my hard drive on the 2nd July 2002 at 00:35.



I didn't win the auction and it was lost for some 15 years, before it resurface in Holland. A great collector friend in Holland bought it and owned it for the next two years, before finally deciding to get out of the hobby.

So here it is as I started to unpack it.

New buttons for my TnF panel

Not really my thing but I went to a job yesterday and this was about to be fixed with a sledge hammer I was told it was f**ked and I could take it away.

I was going to keep the marquee and bin the rest but it works! The hopper empty switch was on causing hc/e1 errors turning it off fixed the problem. Even cMe with a box of tokens and is been converted to 240v

I picked this beauty up today from a very nice guy. Not working but hopefully not for long. Great to see some side art, bit of an upgrade from the one I already have.

Now that SSIV and Garou MOTW are backwards compatible on the Xbox I wanted an arcade stick. Most of them are £150-200 which is crazy.

I ended up getting a mayflash f300 for £49. Standard stick and buttons were fine but I swapped in some Sanwa parts I had spare. Only downside is it's wired rather than Bluetooth but for a £150 saving I can deal with that.

I'll get a picture of mine later but it's not dissimilar to this one

Yes my obsession for this game is a bit worrying, I need to fight my hoarding demons and let one go. It was a nice price Smarty, if you follow the 'arcade and fruit machines sales in the uk' facebook page he has a few more to sell. He sold a nice double dragon that I wanted, but more than happy with this. The 5 hour round trip was more than worth it and to boot it had a hypersports pcb and he sold me a hypersports marquee for my centuri cab. A thoroughly nice guy, who I owe a drink Beer

Nice get with that T&F!

Several of those cabs for sale used to be mine (DD2 and Chequered Flag which was in great condition!) and from the Arcade Barn, I'd have quite happily bought the Double Dragon 2 back as I love the game and I've got space for it now unlike when I sold it!

You have 3 TnF cabs now... sometimes I hate this hobby.

Some of us are just after one... you could have let someone else have it mate.

I brought this as it had side art, my other one doesn't. When I'm ready I'll pass my other one on. I've already had messages about my other cab. You could have messaged me like others have. I'm afraid you need to be proactive in this hobby or you miss out, trust me I've been disappointed many times.

Oh well... I was next in line on Facebook so was hoping.

I'd be interested in your other cab... after one to take to Revival next year. :)
