The opportunity presented itself, and I went ahead and splurged on TGM3. I know everyone will ask me, so... I paid 189,000 JYP for the Type-X with TGM3. Though I also got more stuff too. The package arrived today: What's inside? 13 Kg of pure awesome. As well as a helluva lot of packing peanuts, apparently. This is the first glimpse I got inside... That's a damn thick collection of manuals. Apparently sanwa has an elephant for a logo? Weird. Anyhow let's open up this narrow box... A replacement control panel! Oh god it's so shiny I can't take my eyes off it. I got this to replace my current 3-button panel, which is fairly scratched (some married guy apparently LOVED playing player 2) and is also starting to rust (sloppy washing? spilt trendy beverages? I can only guess). As a bonus I get to try out sanwa sticks (I currently use seimitsu) so I'll get to try the 2 choice brands of TGM players. Another sanwa box? Hmmm.... It's a VC-J2 unit, which will allow me to split the video signal while I play on the machine so I can finally start capturing my play. I'm still missing something to do the actual capturing though, if you guys have any suggestions. Right now I'm thinking of picking of a DVD+HDD recorder. The Type-X with TGM3!! It's much smaller than I was expecting, but this little guy weighs a TON. And finally a picture of the manuals and (copied) artwork. Not pictured: a Sega Naomi converter thing so I can play the game with a JAMMA setup. It's just a boring black brick thing though.
