Can anyone tell me anything about this game/cab?

Mainly I'm curious about whether this is a JAMMA cab. The game doesn't
currently work, and I have not actually seen it in person yet. What sort
of things do I need to look for to find out if it's JAMMA?

Does anybody know off-hand if the TMNT game (that's what is in it now)
was JAMMA? I'm not interested in the game itself, just in getting a
JAMMA cab, or a cab I can convert to JAMMA without too much hassle.

TMNT is Jamma, but Man, that's one ugly cabinet!

Yes indeed... a Sprint 2 cabinet with a rebuilt front panel (to
accomodate two over/under coin doors).

Truly bizarre.

Ok, so aside from the fact that it's a hideous cabinet (LOL) I'm safe
assuming it's JAMMA? I plan on thoroughly cleaning it up and doing
whatever I can to make it look better.

Ok, what about this one? Better looking definitely, but is it JAMMA?

I'm hoping to score both of these really cheap (since neither of them
work) but if I can get by with one of them I'll take the better looking
one. :)

It is hard to tell if it is jamma just by looking at the outside. Jamma
refers to the harness and its ability to accept jamma compatible
boards. You need to know what game is in there to start with, to
determine if it has a jamma harness. Second cabinet looks a little
nicer. I'm not sure what game that is. Somebody in here will recognize
it though.

Many cabinets were originally something else and then jammatized later
on in there life. That is why you need to know what board is in there now.

If you really want a nice starter jamma cabinet, go with a Street
fighter II or a Double dragon one. A double dragon one is nice since
the place the board goes is in the front, and you can rotate the
monitor very easily to play shooter type games. And most games
(Fighting games Aside) take no more then 3 buttons to play and since DD
is two players with 3 buttons each, makes for a good jamma cabinet.

If you want to find out if a game is JAMMA, just check out it's
conversion class at www.klov.com. Simple.

The name of the second one (also no longer working) was GUERRILLA
WARFARE. It's definitely a better looking cabinet, and if it's JAMMA
then I'll just snag it instead of both. The first one is definitely
hideous. ;)

I'm hoping that whatever caused it to die was the game itself and not
the JAMMA harness or anything else. I'd love to be able to just plug in
a different JAMMA game and be up and running.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I have to make do with what is
available to me locally for now. I'm on a pretty tight budget and if I
can score a suitable cab (even an ugly one) locally, then I've just
saved myself a few hundred in shipping costs.

I will keep my eyes open for a SFII or DD cab just in case though.

Thanks!!

I'm talking to a guy right now about getting a DD for $125. Needs a
power supply but that doesn't seem like it would be too hard to fix.
Oh...talked to the guy at the CPS Shock site about suicide batteries,
and he can hack the ROMs on the boards so they will never die on you.
Charges $40 to do it. Think i'm going to get both D&D games done.

A good place to start is always www.klov.com.

You can look up the game there and it will show you the interface type
(jamma, origional, etc.). It's not always 100% accurate on everything, but
in general it's very close.

The first cabinet is just ugly (and trust me... I have a couple of ugly
cabinets... that one is worse :)

The second one looks to be a Guerilla War cab as was said (it has the rotary
joysticks in the control panel, which aren't used in a lot of games). I
could have been swapped out for a Time Soldiers or something... But in
either case, both are Jamma+ games (plus meaining there is additional wiring
beyone just jamma (e.g. rotary sticks).

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like I'll skip the ugly one and grab
the other one. Looks in better shape too. Thanks! I'm pretty excited
since this will be my first acquisition.

Of course, it doesn't currently work, but I'm hoping that there's
nothing wrong with the cab itself.

Rewiring the cab is pretty trivial... A large number of people sell fully
populated jamma wiring looms, so rewiring a cab is just a matter of hooking
the ends up to the right places. Power supplies will run you around $30-40
or so.

The monitors will run you more if you need to buy a new one (they are
usually, but not always, easily fixed).

There are tons of sites on the web offering all kinds of information, or if
you really get stuck, just ask here. Someone is sure to know.

best,
