Me too!
Got a good collection of old machines and fire them up regularly.
The old games are the best, a lot harder too :-)

Sweet, man...
Never owned an arcade cabinet, mate, but not through lack of trying.
My idea of a home arcade, with cabinets right down the hallway, isn't the same idea as my wife's, lol!!

I remember in about 1991 Bright Spot in New Brighton chucked out their Star Wars cabinet (the sit down one), I remember seeing it in a skip outside. My mate nicked the speaker out of it.

I've managed to get my hands on a Neo Geo AES with Metal Slug 1 & 2, King Of Fighters and Neo Turf Golf.
the cartridges used for this thing are HUGE (about 4 times the size of a SNES Cart, twice the thickness of the NES Cart) and they come with huge prices for the games (from 300 up to 1000) so with some documentation from MAME and MESS
i'm attempting to grab a cheap Neo Geo Cart, write up a ROM Loader in Z80 BASIC (since it uses both a Zilog Z80 And a Motorola 68000 as it's main CPU) then flash that program onto a new ROM Chip, and then modify the cart itself to allow usage of Flash Media and a USB Port to stream games directly from a Storage device or a PC.
