I recently bought a Primal Rage Arcade Board off Ebay for $72.00. I also bought an operator's manual which doesn't have much purpose but is cool.

Here's my problem. I'm still missing components for the specific Arcade cabinet. I know where to find the Primal Rage Overlay Marquees and the control panel covering thingy.

What I need to find are the side paneling Marqees for the cabinet, as well as all of the other important parts that I can probably find very easily.

The main thing I'm looking for is the Side paneling Marqees and possibly the joysticks if they were cabinet specific.

If anyone can help me locate any of the Jamma arcade cabinet parts I need please help me.

I've got a site which explains the anatomy of the Jamma Arcade cabinet. Many of the links that the site links to don't have the side paneling Marqees.

I'm gonna assume you're making a typical-ish set.

It'd look something like this, yes?


Generally for things like the side art, marquee and control panel overlay, your choice would be to purchase these from an arcade specialty collector and/or reproducer. Unfortunately IIRC most reproducers still don't do much other than golden-age era, so you'll need to look for. If it helps you any, I found some reference pictures for the side panel, if you really want to try re-painting it.



I'd suggest ou go to an arcade collector scene and try requesting those if you really need them Same for the control panel overlay - in particular, since this is a 90's arcade game where conversions were common and many were generic, I don't really know if you're gonna anything that's quite "right" here, but good luck if you pull it off.

As for joysticskand buttons - they're typical American Fighitng Game Controls, so You'd probably want HAPP aprts.

I'll second the HAPP parts bit, but make some more specific suggestions:

For that setup, you'll need:

2x iL Eurojoystick (Industrias Lorenzo, AKA 'iL', is the outfit that made the joysticks that HAPP branded the Competition in the US. More recently, however, they've been producing their own sticks in China, and the quality isn't quite as good.)
You can also purchase the Eurostick in several colors to match the buttons, if you like.

8x HAPP Competition Pushbutton (for convex buttons) OR
8x HAPP Pushbutton with Horizontal Microswitch (concave)

The only difference between the two is the plunger. What you see in the images is the latter, while more serious fighting game players prefer the former. This is a matter of preference only.

Lastly, 1x each:
HAPP 1-player imprint pushbutton
HAPP 2-player imprint pushbutton

(for Start on both sides, naturally)

Why is this in the Sega Retro forum? This game wasn't made by sega. It had a port for the 32X and Genesis/Mega Drive but this is about the original arcade version which was developed by Time Warner and is also part of Midway I think.

Yeah. Technically this has less to do with Sega than Puyo Puyo Tsuu on the Satellaview, of whcih that thread wasn't moved.
