Hi my name is Andy from Bristol a BIG hello to everyone!

I have a Mame Horizontal/Vertical cabinets that I have converted from jamma Cabinets

Both cabinets play around 400 of my all time favorite arcade games
Also built a Bartop Arcade using a Raspberry Pi 3

I have a YouTube Channel called Andy's Arcade
I am no expert but anyone can build anything with the knowledge of others!

Anyone else from Bristol?

Thanks Guys !

Welcome. Think there are a few members from the Bristol area. I'm not far away, myself.

Oh, I don't have anything very exciting (can't afford it LOL) - Just a few JAMMA cabs and a Sega Shootout Pool. Some of the guys on here have fantastic cabs and collections. Have a look around.

To be honest, I haven’t been in the arcades in quite some time. But I was thinking about it recently. I would go on the pier but since they started an entrance fee no chance!!

Always remember there being a Taito Darius and Namco Shoot away on the pier, last visit was about 1995. I assume the classics were sold off way before before the fire in 2008?

It still had some great cabs on it before it burn down. They had some interesting ones too, gunmen wars being a favourite of mine. You know, I should have gone underneath and seen if I could have looted some crispy PCB's!

From what I hear, the new pier has some formula one sim PC type jobby, gambling machines, some modern stern pinballs. Not sure about the cabs now!
