Thanks Mike btw I figured the no demo sound out, it was an option in the software dip settings. Where is a good place to get a new control overlay panel and a working coin mech? I'd love to be able to a actually put quarters in this thing instead of just hitting the credit lever thats half the fun of a cab.

Nice get Ninja. It looks like a One Slot converted into a 2 Slot cab. I can see the Metal Slug 2 marquee but what other game did it come with?

I'm glad it wasn't a 4 or 6 slot, as it was we had to take the door off the hinges to get it through the front door and it just barely fit. I measured it before with the door on and it seemed it would fit with an inch of clearance on either side but i unfortunately didn't take the doorknob into account. I actually got the marquees long before I got this cab the aero fighters 3 came with the cart and the Metal Slug 2 marquee was a free gift from Mjmjr25 (thanks dude never thought I'd actually use it in a cab haha, but you aparently did ;) )

The carts that came with the cab were Shock Troopers, Nam 1975, League Bowling, and a 161 in 1. I have all those carts already so I'm probably going to sell or trade them all. the grand total was $650 and the deal was he delivered it to my apartment and helped me carry it up the stairs. Figured that wasn't too bad of a deal especially considering the condition its in and needs very little help and great that I didn't have to worry about having to rent a truck and bribe a strong friend.

I really hope moving this beast back down the stairs when I move will be alot easier than moving it up.

Solid pickup, I was going to mention about fixing the sound but I'm glad you got it running.

Curious why you think that. looks like a 2 slot legit to me, unless I'm missing something?

Coin mech wise, as long as the switches/wires are there, you'll probably just need a couple of these if you can't recalibrate the existing ones:

hmm I'm concerned about ordering from them, just look at their second picture. Their warehouse just got hit by a tornado and lightning.

Look at the side it says Neo Geo System no MVS (as it is not a multiple slot cab) and no memory card reader. Also no ''Game Select" where they added the button. Any way still a very nice and legit Neo Geo cab congrats my friend.

Ah, yeah, good call. Like you said, still a very nice scoop :)
