Has anybody used one of these.....http://www.in2amusements.com.au/shop/index.php/3/140_Blue_Elf_108_In_1_Jamma_Board

are they any good?
E.g. are the games straight copies from the originals or are they hacked with bodgey cheats and different difficulties?:unsure

Was looking at getting one for my big blue cab, but i ended up selling the cab on the weekend when i took it to my mates birthday party. So not much use getting one now, but i might for a future project. If you get one let us know how it is since it looks like a nice little system, has most of my favorites on it which is why i was interested.

Yeah.

Not much info. There is always going to be some sacrifices on these multi boards but this sounds ok. Maybe bump that thread and ask for more details and some screen shots?

Yeah i only saw it yesterday, may get one but want more info first!

my 38-in1 neo cartridge seemed good at first but cracks started to appear when i realised you couldn't save hi-scores (or the motherboard cant readthem) and the games themselves were butchered, dont get me wrong i still use it for certain games, but i am not as stoked with it as i was at first!

High scores not saving is most likely the battery on the mainboard has had it unless the roms are pretty hacked up.

Not so, as the time and date are fine even after being switched off for dayz!

And all my normal neo-carts retain the high scores of the last eight inserted cartridges! It may be something with the amount being over 8 games and the motherboard doesn't know what to do!

Did you get an offer too good to refuse?

Not really was more of a break even price, it's going to the pinball fund tho.

do you guys reckon it's got a hard drive?

No hard drive
All in one case, very easy to install about the size of a neo geo cart.
Very fast load to menu and game loads.

If you want to know anything particular let me know and i will check it out for you.

Hey Jasper, a few questions for you:

- Is this a full hardware based game loader? (As in, it's not a re badged PC with a P4 CPU etc)
- How easy would it be to put other games onto it?
- Is it possible to update the games/firmware/emulator?

Sure

1. Fully hardware based, no cpu, or power supply. Enclosed in a blue plastic case, it makes no noise.

2. I would say impossible at this stage would be the same as a 48 in 1

3. Same i haven't opened the box but i would imagine its all flash based memory.

Does it save your high scores?
I think it matters when you have a cab;)

No high score saving which is big let down.

I just bought one its excellent and "worth the money", one of the metal slugs runs a bit slow, you get 60 seconds to decide which one the 108 games you will choose to play, but all up its awesome and the game selection is great speed and sound quality are very good , would highly recommended it, its mostly neogeo stuff, so get one I say! :cool:

Let me guess, metal slug 2?
Everybody thinks this game has slow down, i personally own the game and think it's deliberate programming.

Anyhow, post if vid if you can.
Cheers.

Why do you only get 60 sec ???

Does to go into random mode or something ? Or just in demo mode like the 48's ??

Hey Adam was that the 48-in-1 i sold you in the other thread about the 48-in-1 wiring setup? And how is it going?

Its going good. I had it setup in a lowboy i made, but im changing that to a mame cab and selling it to a mate.

Interesting to see that flash card. LOL.
I would back it up to say the least. Lemme know how you get on with hacking it. My experiences is that as soon as you put it in a card reader it wants to format it only. Never tried the card from one of these though. There has to be a way around it though.

Interesting.

Thanks for the pics Jason.

Yes, that little card tucked away in it's slot leaves a lot open to the imagination!!

And it's not like piracy (am i correct) because they didn't license these titles anyway?

metal slug 5 is a bit slow when there's a lot of action on screen, and you get 60 seconds to choose the game once you insert a credit, would be great if you could change that to longer, other than that is excellent!

Got around to opening one and have a crack at the flash card inside.

Its a 4gb flash.
Can be read in windows no problems

The file format the games come in are .MPQ files one for each game(no MPQ readers would read the files) so most likely this is some propreity format.

There is also a .dat file which seems to cotaiin the boot up and start menu.

I looked at with a hex editor and couldn't make much out of any of the files.

Need more people looking at this one.

I did take a copy of the files and save them to HDD, if anyone wants to have a look. PM me.

I know this is a total stretch, but stranger things have happened.

Have you tried renaming the .MPQ to .ZIP and seeing if its just a renamed zipped rom? Any chance the board is just a custom board disguising a MAME rig?

all you need is a cabinet with a pot assembly for steering and hack a old gaming wheel. All i did was remove the wires off the pot in the gaming wheel and install them in the wheel on the cab. Crude but works fine

Gday,

I'm just about to pull the trigger to order a blue elf 2009 (308 in 1) board. Weighing it up tonite before impulse buying.

I have read both good and bad things about it. I've decided that if it happens to play snow brothers good, I'll ignore everything else bad about it. Snow brothers is one of my favourite arcade games.

Anyway, if anyone has had any experience with them, or know a good place to get them at a desent price, please let me know.

Here is a crappy video of someone playing a sf2 hack on a neo geo button setup on a blue elf (I don't know why bother, but anyway).

YouTube - SNK BARTOP NEO GEO & BLUE ELF 308 - the menu system looks nice at least.

Cheers,
Snippy.

hey mate, how much are you paying for the board? im looking at getting one myself to save some pennys, however I cant find many places selling them. Also, what did the reviews say about it?

Hi guys, with regards to the Blue Elf 108 BOARD, did anyone have any problems getting it to run properly? I had (what i presume to be a faulty board) bought one from a french site but had to return it for a refund as every game froze up and crashed within 20-30 seconds!

Just wondered if anyone has experienced anything similiar as i've been offered one much cheaper from someone in the UK so i just want to make sure it isn't my cab (sega astro city) causing the problem, i was under the impression the Blue Elf was straight plug and play just like a jamma board - no modification required?

Many thanks

James

no problems here yet although some games run at a lower frame rate...choppy as hell.:lol
