Re: Dead Centipede Cab?

Are there any signs of damage or repair? I don't believe so. It's worn, but not damaged. The insides are a bit dusty so I imagine it hasn't been touched in a while. Does anything smell 'burnt'? Again, not that I know of. I'll have to inspect it. Are there any open sockets that should not be? Sigh, a...

Consolizing a Neo Geo MVS?

Has anyone here done it? I plan on trying to do this mod on a 2 slot MVS I acquired recently (only because the cabinet it came with was junk. The original owner tried to use it to make an arcade-ized Xbox but kept the MVS inside. It has a television instead of a monitor.) Any hints or guides anyone ...

Neo Geo MVS to Component or Composite?

Is there a way to do this? I know of superguns, but I have a Neo Geo cabinet which someone tried to install a television into and have it run an Xbox. For some reason, they thought it would be a good idea to not use the MVS and instead play Xbox games. Hmmm. Well anyway, I was wondering if this was ...

Dead Centipede Cab?

Hey board! Long time no post! As you can tell by my very Christmas avatar, which I really need to change. Anyways, I am helping a friend of mine fix her dead Centipede cabinet, but I don't quite know where to turn. The cabinet turns on and you can hear the hum of the monitor, the red LED on the boar...

I hate Metallica's new stuff. I haven't bought a single album that dates after the Black Album.

Hard Drive Problems

Okay, so I got my Windows Vista Recovery cd, and I installed it and it works, but it thinks that my hard drive only has 32gb. When I bought it, it had 120gb. I believe that it still is, but I may be wrong, or the hard drive is dead, or Windows is retarded, or I partitioned it somehow, but it keeps s...

Looks nice so far. I'm trying to finish up an Atari portable right now (as mentioned on your Nintendo Stupendo video) and I feel that mine will end up looking like your first one. :lol: Oh well, great job!

Anyone heard of this site?

http://myminicity.com It's a cool site. You get to make a city and watch it grow every time someone visits it. I just thought it was a cool little game-like-thing I found, and I thought you guys would like it.

My mom had the same problem. She's fine now, she had surgery, meaning she had her large intestine removed. That might be an option, but I'm not sure what kind of cancer my mom had. I really give you my support, stay strong!

Scratch that! It's up and running. I looked in the help file and decided to use text interface, and just put in boot: live vga=771 noapic nolapic. I love it so far, so I plan on installing it.
