Anyone have a Buster Bros machine for a world record?
« on: June 07, 2013, 07:44:08 AM »
With Twin Galaxies are coming to Game Warp, I would love to set the world record for Capcom Buster Bros but it is a very rare machine.  If anyone has one that they could bring to the show or sell to me I would definitely be interested in that too.  The current record is about 2.4 Million and  I should be able to beat that.


I guess I could do it on a MAME machine but the original would be better.

Terry.

Cool Game! looks like was a conversion game using whatever cabs they could :D

Ill ask Richie over the weekend on what the rules are relating to this one, as if can find a board, can drop it in any cabinet

Yes, it was a conversion kit only.  Never released as a full machine and very hard to find.

I will make an offer on that jamma board and see what happens.  Hopefully it has not drained the battery yet.

well Im guessing you won the item, as its sold, I missed a call from Richie last night, and called back but he was in middle of the Timber WR, so will call him today and see, I cant see a problem, what cabinet style do you prefer ? any preference on joysticks? as will determine what cabinet can find to put this board in :D

I did win it. It will be here sometime next week.

Thanks for help finding a cabinet. If the board works I will buy the marquee, CPO and maybe even the sideart to go with it and make my own real machine.

I don't care about the cabinet style so much. The original machine had one button and four-way joysticks but I'm so used to playing it on 8-ways on a generic cabinet (with MAME) that that works just as well.  I prefer ball top sticks. 

Here's a picture of one that looks perfect

I need a help to test the board on a jamma cabinet if that is possible

I have a Jamma cab you can test it in. I love this game, I play it on my turbo duo (I'm not that great though). Also wiling to run the game in one of my cabs at game warp if Englishman doesn't have one.

I received the board and hacked together a ghetto jamma setup on my bench to test.  Good news the board works great after I sorted out the sound issue the ebay seller mentioned.  I'm a little surprised the battery is still good.

Anyway, I would still like to go for the record if I can use someone Jamma cabinet at the show.  I'm pretty flexible on cabinet type but as i said before, ball tops like a candy cab are my favorite.

Do you know how i go about getting on the schedule for the record?

I'm looking for a marquee too since the NOS one is gone from ebay and the only remaining marquee is obviously a repro with incorrect colors.

Thanks,
Terry.
