    Exclamation Links to Arcade Resources

    When i first started getting interested again in setting up an arcade machine, ie Pacman Cocktail, after playing the old classics on mame for a while, i started to look for sources of information and parts, which inevitable lead me to AA , and more recently to this list of resources. If you can think of any others to add to this list, please do!

    The hardest thing for me was to have to go through the same search routines as probably most new arcaders do, that is the hunt for parts and artwork suppliers. Well newbies, here are the starting lists of all starting lists! (Unless someone else has a better list somewhere here on AA of course!)

    The Links List:
    The Aussie Arcade Links Page: http://www.aussiearcade.com/links

    NOTE: CAVEAT EMPTOR applies to any links mentioned in this post and do not imply recommendations good or bad. if i have seen mention of an issue during the compiling list on this day, i'll note it. if you have a had good buying experience with any of the vendors, let everyone know!

    The Extra Links List:
    Acknowledments - The initial content on this list comes from:
    http://forums.arcade-museum.com/show...cade+Resources Did you notice they use the same software as AA does ?

    any chance you can bump up the 20,000 character limit to about 25 or 30,000 or is a system limitation ?

    Andy can you add http://www.ionpool.net/ as a general link.

    I found it recently and it is an absolute goldmine. Everything from parts cross reference to tube swaps. The hold 9 yards.

    brett,

    thanks for the info! great to get some extra feedback - although its already there with a deep link under "Pinouts, dipswitches, manuals, PCB photos". i shld prob should only post home pages rather than deep links that can get broken.

    Edit: forgot there was a second post (the overflow) - added in there for you!

    time to break it down into separate posts as i've hit the magic 20k char limit so cant really add any more to that post.

    cheers!
