    Wow - protecting the paint?

    These aren't likely to be collector pieces, wearing the paint down through play is what makes them unique.

    I'm thinking of chucking an ipac in there: https://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html

    The pinouts on the ribbon cable are all documented here if you wanted to keep things neat https://www.reddit.com/r/Arcade1Up/comments/a02870/hack_original_board_not_just_replace_w_pietc/

    Someone else on Reddit has swapped the whole panel out for sanwa LED buttons which looks pretty cool imo https://i.redd.it/92u4k5t6c5721.jpg


    Thanks for that, I've emailed 1up in the US and the au distributor (Hunter Products), not expecting a reply anytime soon given the time of year.

    Otherday Camberwell (VIC) cleared them out at $149. Talked to manager and asked when dropping form $300. Said given it states week 44 that meant clearing that week and they did. Perfect height for small child, detail and decals look great.

    I only saw a ticket for the sf ones, I think it was $299. They had a pile at Strathpine last Thursday when I was there too, but only sf ones there.

    If anyone is looking to mod these cabs, I can confirm this LCD controller works on the included screen on my SF2 unit.

    The OSD came in Chinese but was able to set this to English using google translate phone app. I've only tested the HDMI input and it's working fine :)

    Not at my local store (Kessels road) still rocking 299.
    Asked, they said no plans to drop the price right now....
