My first Arcade Machine!
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:49:41 PM »
Hello everyone. After seeing a 5 month old offerup ad, figure i'll take a shot in the dark with a message. Got myself what looks to be a home use only minimum played Off-road racing stand up. Under my bed is the PCB Neil Hernandez used to submit his Twingalaxies records, as well as some of my times that were never submitted. It's eventually going to get converted into that. I been playing MAME v106 with a keyboard and have every single USA and WORLD time beat on inp(s) with difficulty 9 not the factory 5 that TG  require. I'm extremely happy right now to place my hands on a steering wheel again and soon rewrite the record books for Cruis'n USA after 20 years.

Danny popped his cherry ! Congrats on the pick up!
I'll sign the Offroad Marquee if want me to. Who know's maybe the machine will go up in value ?
I'll swing by the house to check out the machine sometime next week.

someone remind Neil that the stand up version doesn't have a brake pedal, apparently he's not comprehending that. I have better time(s) on a keyboard than some players do on a steering wheel. I don't like to release my game play because i'm not after recognition. I'll upload some teasers to Youtube :)

I apologize for that message, it meant no harm. Neil and I are the best of friends who sometimes take shots at each other for fun.
Very happy for his success and accomplishments., he's not the number 2 Azzhole, he's number 1. :)

here's a Arcade Star Wars Racer practice run, hope you enjoy.
