I haven’t posted recently (almost 8 months!) but I also haven’t forgotten about this little project-blog, I just haven’t run into any issues worth researching or posting about. In the last eight months I’ve picked up a handful of CPS2 carts (Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Vampire Hunter 2, Vampire Saviour 2, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3) but they’re all in fine working order, and since I already retrofitted my MVS cab for JAMMA/CPS2 connectors, everything is working fine.
My future projects (in order of importance) are likely going to be:
- Replace the batteries in all of my CPS2 carts (all of them have been replaced within the last year, except for VH2 and VS2, which are unknowns)
- Replace the buttons and sticks with new ones. The existing buttons are just a little too squishy for me
- Replace the side art and touch up the paint on the cabinet
Sadly, #3 probably won’t happen for a very long time–until I have a garage or somewhere outdoors where I can disassemble the cabinet for painting and a retrobrite treatment. As such, there probably won’t be a new post until I either pick one of those projects up, something breaks on my cab and I document my fix or I pick up another cabinet and need to document information on it.
