Re: How Would You Go About a Trade in the US?

I've done a trade in the US before. Stop on the Canadian side before crossing into the US, tell them you're bringing a machine down for an event. They will give you a green card with the game name and serial number. This gives you hassle free entrance into the US because in their eyes you're bringi...

Re: How Would You Go About a Trade in the US?

Talk to Chris (PizzaDude). He tried to bring a machine across for trade and made the mistake of saying he was trading a game, and the US border agent wouldn't let him bring the game into the US. I'm only giving you the Coles Notes version of the story... he can tell you more. It would be interestin...

I still think that's useful information because he can hope not to pay any duty legally if he does the research unlike both of us.

Re: How Would You Go About a Trade in the US?

Has anyone here ever traded a game for one in the US. As the initiator of the trade, you would be the one expected to cross the border with game 'A' and come back with game 'B'. How would that work with customs? I definitely don't see the US citizen crossing the border first to pay the duty on a ga...

Re: anyone here read Japanese?

There is an app where you can take a picture of the Japanese characters and it will translate. I'm pretty sure the captcha is designed to defeat those bots though, unless it's the kind you choose all pictures that match the text. Yeah, you have to be able to reply to a question using Japanese cut'n...

If I got a price for a game as-is, I would get a game. Nothing I can't handle. The only projects they keep in stock are the rejects. The AAA machines are sold while still in the container, and the decent projects they keep to themselves for their restoration shop. I would trust RAB when he says we ...

Re: TSPP:Reset and DMD problems.

This is exceeding my limited expertise. The TSPP manual says its display controller board is 520-5055-03. If you decide to replace the board, maybe you can find a replacement board with a Wanted ad on maaca. With another board, you need to transfer the roms. If you run out of options, you may consid...
