Chinese 60-1 ?? Or Nintendo switcher??
« on: October 11, 2017, 09:37:00 AM »
I just wanted to know everyoneís opinion on this, Iím at a crossroads. I have a family (wife and 2 kids), so I have to spend wisely! I have an original DK cab, 3 other arcades, no more room.. (wife will divorce if I get another)...soo I just want to spice things up. Should I get a 60-1 off mikes Arcade for a Nintendo cab or just a Nintendo 2 game switcher? I do have a DK jr board now. Your opinion would be nice...(I also have a DK jr marquee, bezel, control panel to switch if I want to...

Mike's and Quarter Arcade have the higher quality 60-in-1's if you end up going that route.  I don't have experience with other games on the 60-in-1's, but I've played Donkey Kong on the icade 60-in-1's at a couple different locations, and while they are very good, there is a slight bit of lag to them.  Probably not noticeable to most, but to those of us that have poured countless hours into playing on a legit PCB, it takes a bit of adjustment to get into a groove with the slight bit of delay.

I mean, it's probably a matter of a couple frames, but again, I notice it.

Maybe I'm crazy tho.

All that is to say, if you're wanting the wider selection of titles and don't think what I've said will be an issue, then 60-in-1 is probably the best option.  If the wider selection of titles isn't that attractive and you prefer authentic feel, then go with a switcher.

My $.02.

I was afraid of that... if one game is like that, could be more.. I would notice..thank you. That should have been my question. Has anyone played a 60-1 board... thereís only like 8 games I care about on it anyway.

I occasionally give them a go when I encounter one somewhere, so I couldn't tell you which brands/models they were...
But I've experienced some inexplicably baffling degrees of lag first-hand.  As a programmer, I can't even envision how they managed to pull off such lag if it wasn't deliberately programmed in.   Or the makers really, really, REALLY didn't care about their product.

I'm sure there are some good ones out there, but how would you know you're getting the good one?

(edit: For what it's worth, emulators generally sample the inputs *once* per frame, before a frame happens, then process/generate/compose that frame.  Then display it.  On real hardware, the inputs are totally dynamic.  If you moved the joystick right before the code that is executing checks it, it's already there to see.  No delays before an input registers and no additional delays between generating a frame and it appearing on the screen.)

The one I most recently played was an "icade" xx-in-1.  It was set to dedicated donkey kong, in a DK cab but had an icade splash screen.  And, while I noticed a very slight delay, by L3 or so I had adjusted, and again, I think the average player would never noticed.

I believe those are the ones that Mike's and Quarter Arcade and High Score Saves sell, which I've also read elsewhere are the best offerings available (the one's at Mike's, QA and HSS).
