Somehow I screwed up my first thread and erased everything about introducing myself on here, let me start again. :ermm:

Hi everyone, my name's Jeremy from the Upper NY state, capital district location.

Recently I purchased a Maxi Tune 3Dx+ single machine, in Japanese, from Ebay last September. Don't know how I found it for such a good price but needless to say, it had a few issues when I received it from the freight shippers, :rantrant: and the seller on there did not even do a halfway decent job of prepping the game for shipment. It basically arrived at the freight dock, metal banded to a small pallet and that's it.

When I picked it up, the signboard was destroyed and missing, and there was no power cord and no keys to be found, so I was very pissed off.

Well, after getting it to my house, I drilled all the locks off, and found the power cord, and Ethernet cable down inside the coin tray. :o Cleaned the machine out everywhere and found some Japanese Yen in the seat, plus a used card with a red Evo 9 on it.

Next problem I had, the monitor never came on but the game played nonetheless. :madrant: After taking apart the monitor chassis board, I discovered 2 separate copper wire coils that had popped off the board. So with any luck, I did my best and resoldered those puppies back on. Installed the board back in, and voila, it worked!! A little degaussing later and the game plays awesome!

Flash forward to today, the signboard was ordered from ArcadeSpareParts.com, and I even managed to find 50 new blank cards from a good guy on here (thank you Weirdo808Hi). I'll be in touch. :thanks:

The other cabs I own are a Ms Pac Man unit, it has the classic 60-in-1 board and plays a lot of the 80's games to include all the Pac Mans, Donkey Kongs, Frogger, 1942, 43, etc... and the other cab is a 1990 Neo Geo MVS-4. That one has around 10 individual games and the 161 mulit cart as well.

Perhaps someday I'll build a little arcade attachment to my house have tournaments. One can dream though. :ninja:

I'll add some photos as I get time.
