Sega Versus City

Mirrored from Arcade Otaku for those who only come here:



I thought as there is some interest on this forum for this cab to be shown in a bit more detail I would post some pictures up in my own thread.



A little bit of background on my cab I got this for helping Fire-Bug Aka Mark Starkey sell some arcade parts on here over the last few months in order to help fund his Heart of gaming arcade project:



http://www.facebook.com/TheHeartOfGaming



The agreement was that I would get a bare bones project cab out of the left over bits from building up his 6 Vs city's & therefore the cab would be incomplete & a bit worse for wares no problems I said fare play, major missing parts were monitors, PSU, stepdown, some wiring & yellow plastic housing on the light box winner display.



The Troc had a 7th VS in there workshop with lots of parts missing.



For my Vs city I'm using 2x Nanao MS-2932's 31K ex VT3 as they have the same curvature as the MS9 & with only 1 bezel afaik my options were limited.



Having been working on this a few weeks now I'm almost finished tried MAME on it Saturday night to test 1 side as still waiting on a second monitor, but all ok & sound was working both sides so at least I know its good.



Mark & his GF picked the cabs from the Trocadero up 1 Saturday in July & asked me if I could come to the workshop & help unload them, so I got in my Bimmer & came down...

All the cabs at that time were looking a little battered as some of you will know if you had seen them in London not that well looked after & general abuse from been on site for over 10 years:



Image



Over the next weeks we started to strip down, clean & learn about what we had at the time, as some more were picked up at a later date:

PSU acts a dual monitor switch unit & has stereo input amp looks like a driver style, unit also diverts power to the winner topper ect & has a Astro style PSU for the Jamma interface.

Brand new panel thanks to Richy13 almost to good to use.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I went and checked out a Versus City locally and was wondering how it came apart.
