    Buying game boards from Australian distributor?

    Hi all, I am looking at upgrading a 40 in 1 system with a 412 in 1, but it looks like I will only be able to get it from China? Does anyone have a fave they buy from in Australia? I had a look at Austin Amusements (AA Sponsor), but it looks like they are out of stock with xxx in 1 boards.

    My system is a modified Gottleib Challanger with a 26" Vertical CRT screen.

    Thanks heaps

    Dave

    Honestly I would hold off until later in the year, all the game elf boards have issues atm, as they've updated the hardware, but not changed the software to suit.
    Apparently there's an update for them coming in a few months, but i'd be surprised if the issues are fixed...

    Maybe look into the pijamma if game elfs got issues?. Expensive but can customise to suit

    Not trying to derail any sales also btw

    Using the pijamma will give you more control over the games you have and the emulation quality is better than the multi boards.

    This is the thread

    @dee2eR is also very helpful if you run into any issues.

    I think I have settled on ARpiCADE. Funny thing is it says that it is made in Australia, but I cannot find it for sale in Australia. It is not cheap, but as long as it works OK, I don't mind.

    Just send dee2eR a pm. He makes them. It is definitely Australian.

    If you care, you get much better sound quality from a raspberryJAMMA than a game elf
