    ALL HAIL THE ARRIVAL OF THE GLORIOUS NIGHTS OR ARCADIA!
    *trumpets blaring the make all lesser beings aware of the entrance of Glorious Leader*

    Ahem, i am the representative of the Messiah of Arcadia himself, Triforce. And have been tasked with delivering unto him the most able bodied and talented warriors of the banks of the lake of Salt.
    What i am telling you farm hands, and prairie folk is that The Chosen One himself, has extended the reach of his nintendo brand (official, not some cheap chinese knock off) power glove over the great mountains of your state, and is offering YOU the opportunity of a lifetime.
    A chance to prove yourself as an Elite in his Greatness's Army for only 9 easy payments of 99.99.
    I will have my presence known at all future locals (not physically.... because plane fair is expensive... i can't even get a token for the subway home... shit is crazy.) and will be regularly recruiting you with the chance of a lifetime!
    THE FUTURE IS NOW!
    LONG LIVE TRIFORCE!
    LONG. LIVE. NINTENDO.

    Stick is done, just sorting the player LEDs. Yard work trumps modding though.

    Ya'll know me, still the same OG, just been low key.

    Spent the last month relaxing and working on my KI skills. It'd be nice if more than Jet and I played it locally. I know, console exclusive, price prohibitive and what not. Gotta make it out to casuals with setups for exposure honestly.

    Very well put together documentary. I've been out of the scene for about 2 years. Wish I could help reopen Ogden casuals just really difficult with the new one, just curious what has transpired since then, as far as the influx of players.

    Looking for players in the St. George/southern Utah area. Seeing as how we don't have a scene, figured this would be the best place to look. Just trying to organize some weekly matches or something.

    Hi, Utah. I moved back to Salt Lake last summer and am ready for some games. As I recall, you guys have a strong scene, and I'd love to get some games in. Hopefully BB is alive and well here. But if not, I'll play some Persona, MKX, Xrd, or SFIV (of course).

    EDIT: BTW, I'm one of the only people not on Facebook these days, so "You must log in to continue" is not an option for me. The Idaho thread went in the same direction.

    Anyone in the Provo area play UNIEL? I too moved here recently. Or is it mostly Street Fighter and Smash? I've been to our Smash weeklies before, pretty cool, but I haven't found really found anything else that's consistent. I guess I'll check that Facebook group out? I don't use Facebook much though.

    Hey all!

    I know I'm kinda new in the Local scene, and somewhat outspoken and boisterous, but I don't normally post in this thread. I usually have a lot of things on the bench and don't like to thump my own chest. This time, however, I want to share with you something I've actively been working on for about a year now, but before I do, it's story time.

    16 years ago my younger brother and I would spend hours on end playing Killer Instinct on the SNES against each other. Many, Many good times were had, but our time as sparring partners was cut short. not even a year later my younger brother died. Since then, Killer Instinct has held a special place in my heart.. a way to reunite with a lost brother and friend.

    Flash forward to E3, 2013. The Xbox One is officially announced, and with it, a new Killer Instinct game! I was pumped! I planned on picking one up as soon as I could to play some killer instinct and relive the glory days I had with my brother.

    But I knew that I needed to do it right.

    A plan was put into action from that moment and only recently has it gotten to the point where I can honestly feel like 90% of the work has been completed.

    First, I knew that the Xbox One was going to be an HD-only console, so I picked up an HD cabinet (From @HadoukenMD‌):

    temporary_zpsf39ccdc0.jpg
    The Infamous "BRO SPA" cabinet

    Andy gave me a pretty good deal on this Noir Clone cabinet. Because it's a Chinese bootleg, it had a lot of things wrong with it. It wasn't even wired for a 2nd player! The solder side of the edge connector has absolutely no wires to P2 controls. I covered a lot of the initial things that I did to bring it back to JAMMA+ spec in a few posts in this thread on the neo-geo forums, but as a recap:

    Corrected wiring on JAMMA harness to comply with JAMMA+
    Removed 240v transformer and replaced PSU to run on 120V
    Wired PSU with JVS power connectors
    Replaced monitor cooling fan (original ran on 240v)
    removed cruddy Stereo amp and added naomi amp (put an all in one in there. it fits, but just barely)
    Rewired amplifier to use stock Audio knob (this was a PAIN IN THE .. well, you know)

    Since then, I've also added in a GBS-8220 CGA to VGA scaler and wired the RGB lines from the edge to a removable connector that plugs into the CGA IN port of the scaler board. It doesn't look half bad.

    At this point, I felt good enough to get an Xbox One and put it in my cabinet. To even get it to display video and play sounds required even more work:
    temporary_zps320378a9.jpg

    HDMI to DVI adapter cable (DVI preserves HDCP Encryption :D)
    Optical to analog Stereo adapter (powered by the cab's internal PSU)

    The cab was only 1P, so I wired up an impromptu Xbox One pad hack and placed it in a spare box I had kicking around.

    Even after all this work, it still didn't feel right.. it didn't feel authentic. I couldn't have anyone over to play against on the same cabinet.

    I had to dig in harder. I needed a 2P panel.

    I had been looking for an authentic Namco Noir panel since I had bought the cabinet over a year ago and missed out on the only one I had seen on YAJ (thanks to Chempop from N-G.com for the tip!) because of lack of funds. After additional months of fruitless searches, I bit the bullet and convinced myself into getting a repro panel completed. I asked around, but all providers had asked me to send them the panel for measuring.. I didn't want to be out a panel for weeks at a time, so I put off getting a new one until a friend had referred me to AMP UP Customs on facebook. They normally make replacement top panels for arcade sticks, but had recently branched out into arcade cabinets, and just so happened to have recently completed a NOIR CLONE panel! I reached out to them and after a few weeks of planning, drafting, and positioning, I had a new panel on my doorstep.
    temporary_zps2358cb05.jpg
    That's not your eyes deceiving you, those ARE USB ports under the start buttons! They connect to a powered USB hub, which then connects to the Xbox one!

    With a 2P panel, I finally resigned myself to completing the JAMMA+ harness by adding the 2nd player in. I rewired the connectors for the 1P side with AMP UP connectors (same as a Sega Cabinet) for some uniformity.
    temporary_zps5b473193.jpg


    I then decked the 2nd player out in matching stick, balltop, and buttons.
    temporary_zpsf45a617f.jpg

    Finally, I got ahold of another Xbox One controller PCB, Two Crossbone PCBs and a large enough project box and made myself a proper adapter.
    temporary_zps2ceb52b1.jpg

    There are no guide buttons on this box because there's a 2nd service button in this cabinet! I wired the coin wire from the JAMMA edge to it, and then wired the Guide button from the 1P pad to the coin pin on the JAMMA edge. It works great!

    temporary_zps84f31398.jpg

    It's been a long, Arduous journey. An expensive one as well, but I would give anything to honor the memory of my brother and relive those moments where it was me and him in front of a TV playing games without a care in the world.

    This one's for you, Ian.


    THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.

    Tournaments are sparse yes, but locals happen frequently. You just have to ask and they'll let you join. Unless you're smelly, then they never let you come back... *sob*
