In my search for an empty cab to use as a cheap mame cab, I’ve come across an MvC cab for pretty cheap (150 bucks.) The seller either doesn’t know the machine or is just hyper-ambiguous in his answers, so bare with me and the limited information, but there are a few questions maybe you guys could help me answer:
“It is a fully working game minus the circuit board. You can buy a Jamma 1315 in 1 game board for right around $350 that has 1315 different games on it”
Was his response when asked if the CPS2 A Board was still in the machine. I have very limited knowledge of arcade machines, but maybe one of you could help me interpret that statement? I was thinking of buying one the CPS2 era SF games, and as I understand it the machine needs the “A” board and the games are interchangeable as “B” boards. Given his response, do you think I’ll need to buy an A board (I don’t know how all the JAMMA wiring stuff works…")
Since there are apparently multi-game cards, is there a board like the one he was talking about that would possible contain some of the CPS2 or even CPS3 era fighting games, without having to worry about A boards, or B boards, since like I said, I don’t have an extensive knowledge of JAMMA. The board he referred me to had XVSF and I think COTA, and…Street Fighter: The Movie…
Any help would be appreciated.
