Last few weeks worth of YJ loot

I missed out on a Tekken 5 auction that ended at ¥ 1,200 which kinda made me sour. But on the bright side I’ve managed to do a couple of other bargains.

CPS2 Mobo

CPS2 MotherboardNot that I have any games for the CPS2 but what can I say? I’m a hardware nerd. Honestly CPS2 is one of the platforms I haven’t checked into much yet but I’m looking forward to disassembling it 😉

I will however from now on be on the lookout for Progear no Arashi so Mono can have back the copy I’ve borrowed from him.

Random kick harnesses

Blast City harnessBeen trying to round up all the plugs, pins and cables I’d need for assembling kick harnesses for the Naomi and the System 246 but kinda lost interest for the moment so I landed two harnesses.

First one’s seems to be some kind of Blast City/Astro City from something else harness. Not really sure if it’s gonna be useful.

If you know what it is I’d appreciate if you could drop me a line.

Sega BGS-006A kick harnessSecond one is a pair of CPS2/3 kick harnesses. Presumably these should work for the Naomi as well since I connect it through the Capcom I/O adapter. I’ll know as soon as they’ve landed.

Sega 5380 key

Sega 5380 keysOk, this one’s been a nightmare. They’re as rare as diamonds and worth their weight in gold! My New Astro City didn’t come with any keys. Luckily a friend had a spare that I could borrow so I didn’t have to break into my cab, but I’ve been looking for one since the summer.

Tekken 5 Control Panels

Tekken 5 control panelsReally looking for a 2L12B panel I stumbled upon this pair of Tekken 5 panels and since I at the moment only have a 2L6B panel they’ll at least will let me play Tekken 4 and Soul Calibur II for now.

Bezel filler for flat monitors

Bezel FillerI swapped the original MS-9 monitor for a Toshiba Pure Flat since it will allow me to play hi-res games as well but being flat it needs a filler for the gap between the monitor and the bezel.

This project will take a while since the front of the pure flat is much deeper than the MS-9 (it doesn’t curve in the corners) I will have to mount it behind the enclosure in order to make it fit. More on that later.

All in all, I think it’s gonna be a fun X-mas this year 😀
