My new arcade game!! Wonder Boy 2!

WHEE!! SO HAPPY!! Sort of.. my new board came in tonight, and I hooked it up to the Neo Geo cabinet and it works, MINUS THE FREAKING SOUND!! GAH!!

Okay, here's a pic of the game in action:


One of the best action/adventure games ever made..

Here's a page I've been working on about the game for those interested (very early progress):

Okay, but really this no sound thing upsets me. .I spent $71 on the board ($19 shipping, jerk), and $55 for a JAMMA adapter..

Can anybody give me a hand? dek?

BTW.. Super Auction updated thier site!!

Dallas/Mesquite Auctions on August 16th, October 18th, and December 13th!! If anybody wants to meet up let me know.. I'll be looking for a cabinet to put my new board in (can't hog the roommate's Neo Geo forever).. also I'd really like to tear apart and rework a cabinet, sounds like fun.

Above the green button? Yes those are keys to the cabinet and coin box.

That is such a sweet cabinet. Where did you order that from again.. It comes complete right, then you just gotta buy the boards or whatever. (Sorry to step on this thread)

That game looks cool by the way.

www.arcade-infinity.com has them.. yup comes complete.. just need JAMMA compatible boards (or in my case, a non-JAMMA board with an adapter).

Cool! I wish I had the money and space to buy arcade games like you do.

Did you know they are doing a remake of the original Wonderboy? Well not really a remake but actually a re-release with upgraded graphics and sound, kind of like the Super Mario Advance series.

Hah!! Well.. I don't really have that much extra money.. My roommate shelled the expensive part (the cabinet)..

A remake of Wonderboy? Again..? That game has already been remade a bunch.. first it was Adventure Island for Nintendo, then Super Adventure Island for SNES, and New Adventure Island for Turbo Grafx.. now if they made a remake of Wonder Boy 2 I would scream like a little girl in glee.
