    Nice, I have an omega too as my buddy makes these and is the owner of Arcadeworks. He really takes the time and dedication to build the omegas even at the expense of him not being able to hang out with me or other folks as he is constantly building Omegas whenever he can. I have a 161-in-1 cart and didn't have a problem on the omega but the 120-in-1 carts has twinkle star sprites and the 161-in-1 cart does not.

    Got some insight from my local contact as to what goes into these things (I know a few people who know the owner of Arcadeworks)

    He buys up loads of MV1C Neo Geo MVS boards, working, or with issues and then consolizes them into the Omega. Anything that's wrong with the board is repaired then consolized. My contact has a Omega but it has some issues still. It's going to get repaired by the owner of AW soon though. I can back up the fact that he puts a lot of time into AW and the Omega consolized MVS. Still, the website and customer service need work.

    Hopefully I'll have the chance to use one of these soon. Going to compare it with the supergun MVS setup I'm getting.

    I will say: I play mine every day and havn't had any problems. Again..the Scart cable is an absolute must! a huge difference over the s-video cables. At least on my TV it was. I play a different game each day on the 120-1 cart and working my way thought winning with each character in all 5 Samurai Spirits MVS carts I own. (and the occasional game of "Mark of the wolves") again..No problems whatsoever so far.

    I know some guys don't like the fact that the dip switches are inaccessable. So I do agree that having a small hatch to be able to access them would be nice for the "Purists" who want to change difficulty when playing in MVS Arcade mode. I'm fine since using the unibios to play in AES mode not only allows you to change difficulty but some of the games in AES mode have extra characters, bosses, music, cut scenes or endings..I.E. Mark of the Wolves (which seriously SNK Playmore..please let that or Samurai Shodown be the next game to get a "next gen" update). So my experience has been very, very positve so far with the exception of the delays in recieving mine to begin with....turned out to be worth the wait.

    Sorry to hijack someone else's thread but is there any other way of contacting the owner of AW other than Facebook? I don't have and won't have a FB account. I've tried e-mailing but that obviously still doesn't work.

    Anyone ever have any trouble playing Samurai Showdown V with an Omega? Mine will simply boot to a white screen then fades to black before the neo geo logo goes on. It's a japanese cart so I changed the region to japan Arcade and then I got a black screen with white lines on bottom. Most other regions I got black green alone except Euro arcade where it was red and black lines over the entire screen.

    I checked the Cart and it's a genuine board, clean pins, everything connected properly and boards facing correctly with chips forward.
