    Candy cab appreciation thread. I want candy!

    Hey guys,

    Heaps of amazing collections of pinball and arcade are displayed on this forum every day. I love checking out people's collections and some of my favourite arcade cabs are Japanese candy cabs. I have spent a while putting together my collection and have seen a few others post pictures of theirs over the years. So the point of this thread is simple. Show me your candy! I will start by tagging @SpudJones to post his, as I know he has a decent lineup. I will also tag @Andyj965, but that would mean he'd have to clean his garage and turn his machines on for a photo A photo of my current lineup is below with an outline of what runs on each cab. Let's appreciate some candy!

    From right to left in the image.

    Namco Exceleena - Running GroovyMAME at 15khz for vertical games, mainly Japanese SHMUPS. Has a Jomac Sharp Image dual res chassis and a TV tube. This was the first candy cab I ever bought and still my favourite.

    Sammy Atomiswave - Running GroovyMAME at 15khz for horizontal games. Has a Jomac Sharp Image dual res chassis and a TV tube. The original monitor had a dead yoke, so sadly, does not have the tri-res auto switching functionality.

    Sammy Atomiswave - Running Atomsiwave motherboard with Knights of Valour: The Seven Spirits. This one is all original with the original monitor, gets a beautiful image, even though the Wei-Ya is considered to be the cheap, bastard cousin of tri-res, auto syncing monitors.

    Sega Astro City - Running Raiden Fighters. Has the original Nanao MS9 monitor.

    Sega Astro City - Running Neo Geo with Puzzle Bobble. Has the original Nanao MS9 monitor.

    Sega Lindbergh - Running a Taito Type X II with a multi-hdd. I mainly use it for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

    Sega Naomi Universal - Running Strikers 1945 II. It's got a 31k, VGA Nanao MS2932 in it. The cab was originally JVS wired, but has had a JAMMA harness installed alongside. The 15khz Strikers board runs through a VGA converter. I have a PC ready to put into this cab to run Demul to emulate Naomi SHMUPS, I just need to get off my ass and install it.

    Right, onto other candy cab collections. Post your setups and let's talk candy!

    Only the two candies at my place.. a nice pair of egret 2 though. The horizontal has a switcher with sf2ce, sf2ww, Superman, asterix, dynasty wars and psychic force. The vertical has a switcher with Raiden 2, Raiden dx, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, galaga and a 60 in 1.

    Nice, Egret 2s, the dream machine. I've never seen an Egret for sale in Brissie, if one came up and it was well priced, I'd be all over it like a rash. Great selection of games you have on the switchers also.

    How does the picture go switching between boards and which switcher are you using?

    Hi ��
    I got one 6 in 1 switcher from RiddledTV (Jim) on Klov. He did mods for grounding, -5 and service sw. I also got a 3/4 player condenser board from him and some DuPont cables and jamma extenders etc for a 6 in 1 4-player project I’m working on. I got the other off gumtree. I also bought some nomotes from dogp on klov who sent them to Jim for me. Jim installed one on the switcher I got from him and sent the lot over to me. Holy-snes here on AA installed the the other switcher’s nomote for me (cheers mate).
    The nomote has a couple of great functions... first up it removes the remote (which are a bitch as when you have more than one switcher it changes all in range as they run on the same frequency) .. it allows you to assign button/s to switch between slots/boards at your discretion (eg. I selected start buttons for both player 1 and 2 to be held down for three whole seconds to trigger the switcher to change slots. It only powers one slot on the switcher at a time so the other slots aren’t chewing power and also lets you bypass empty slots if needed. It works great ��

    I hope my rambling explanation helps lol

    - - - Updated - - -

    Got the second switcher off gumtree.. can’t say off the top of my head which brand specifically for the switchers but happy to check when I get back from my hols down the coast .. cheers

    I hope you don't mind me posting this here.
    I have no idea about Candy cabs but have been offered this.
    It is empty inside and has no monitors.
    Any idea how much it would be worth? I have been told its an original Sega versus cab. Its like 2 joined together.

    Once again soz if I should of put this in the price check section.

    It would take a lot of money to get it up and running again. The two monitors alone would cost between $550 or so for a pair of Jomac chassis and TV tubes. If you wanted to track down two, good condition Nanao 29 inch monitors, it would cost even more.

    I wouldn't pay much for it, as it would be a pain in the ass to get running again.

    Nice, I would love a Vs City, but space is a premium for me and they are just so bloody massive.

    Yeah I must admit it's a tank easy to move around though just trying to find a spot for it is proving difficult haha
