Everything looks fantastic. Very cool.
Ok...I thought I could deal with this but I can't...can you change the right side carts to match the left. The left side of carts need to point towards the center and the right side is out...Okay - There. My adult I-swear-I'm-not-going-thru-a-mid-life-crisis AES Collection.

64 Games Total | 54 CIB | 5 Loose w/Repro Case | 4 Real MVS Conversions | 1 EPROM Conversion
Loose: Andro, Ninja Commando, Cyber Lip, Magician Lord (has manual), Windjammers
Conversions: Bomberman, Shock Troopers, Breaker's Revenge, Metal Slug 1
Eprom: Twinkle Star
Special Mention: SSVS Unfixed, Slug 3 First Print, most CIB and all big-tymer games are in excellent - mint condition.
Fun Fact: This is my THIRD (and fucking final) AES collection.
It's pretty much complete at this point for what I can afford/justify spending money on - maybe a couple more. (still looking for that bargain deal on ROTD...) heh This is all built over the last five years - and I've paid no where near current market value for the majority of these games. I've stumbled on some fantastic deals and made a few friends along the way. The rest of the gaps are filled in between my MVS and Neo CD collections.
I have LEDs in the basement on a warm, low-light setting 99% of the time. Brighter setting for this pic. Getting doors for the bookcases soon.
Are you the guy who goes around the house lining up all the light switches so they're all uniform by any chance?Ok...I thought I could deal with this but I can't...can you change the right side carts to match the left.

In this case I just mean aftermarket/fanmade stuff. Stuff that isn't part of the original retail game packaging. I don't think it's a subjective concept. Repro stuff isn't original.Not really a discussion for here - but what is "fake" exactly? I think it's going to mean a lot of different things to different people.
Ok, I'd agree what constitutes the overall definition of fake is not subjective, but when you've got genuine components mixed in I do think it becomes subjective.In this case I just mean aftermarket/fanmade stuff.

Ok, so conversions are always going to be a bone of contention - personally I don't mind them, because y'know - fuck buggering my cart slots with mvs convertors.
But if you can get a legit loose cart what's wrong with rehousing it? Better than madmanjock collection of loose carts, and he's not trying to pass them off as fully legit.
I still can't believe when I collected MVS carts how shitty SNK did on some of the carts they swapped over. I remember opening a MVS of Burning Fight with the brown tape covering the work. I guess it didn't matter because it was in an arcade machine but it looked like half ass slapped together work.I wonder who here might care if they opened a cart and found repair work that SNK did at the factory.
