As titled, i have been working on a new side project for turning an MVS 2 slot arcade board into a consoled version. Something that i'm working on as time permits, but i have been gathering parts for the purpose of being able to play arcade quality Metal Slug on my TV. No space for a neo-geo upright system etc and no funds for a home neo-geo system with metal slug cart. Plus the emulators are not 'pure' in my mind!

So, this is where we are currently.

Uni Bios rom fitted. Now thinking about the best way to attack other tech stuff like Scart connection and power and then buttons to add to the case. (power on/off, test, credits etc) Handily these 2 slot arcade boards came with pad controller ports, so that part is sorted. bizarre but very handy. I am thinking possibly of making a nice scart connector and power in board unless there is a good one already out there.

Got my Metal Slug cart and info plastic. Going to attach the plastic to the case, but wondering whats best as in some future i may want to remove it without damage.

Can you not use a super gun instead? I converted my SS2 into metal slug for the AES another way of doing it.

Be interesting to see what you come up with. :thumbs:

Yeah, i guess i am thinking of creating a kind of super-gun for the hardware i have (mvs 2 slot). The ones i've seen before kind of stick out from the jamma port though so i want something thats internal i think or mounts neatly on top of the pcb with ports/connectors to the edge etc. Also i want to keep the 12v an option so i can still maintain the official scart spec. Some power mods i've seen say just run it from 5v only..
