Pandoras Box King Of Air 2 Full Install Kit

I upgraded an old Gallaga 1up. As promised, it works great; I'm thrilled with the final results. It was effortless to install, but some technical skills are helpful. Shane is excellent if you need help. I felt like I was their only customer. Responded too fast to every question.

Unresolved issues

Kit was complete, love the games. Installation would be easier with written instructions would be helpful instead of video. Can't access sound controls, system configuration setting without going inside machine. Got to go to the rear of machine to power off. All very inconvenient. Also, no parts for illuminating marquee (retrofitted Frogger Arcade 1UP). Joystick does not work with Player 2 on some games, not all. Had to flip monitor due to LCD board showing image upside down, horizontal alignment unresolved and have to get another board. Shane was very responsive through troubleshooting process even though the above issues are still unresolved.

You posted the review the same time you asked about the above issues.
1. the volume on the unit is fairly stable, most games stay consistent. If you need a external volume adjustment easiest way is to add a external amp and mount to the top or back of the unit.

2. we have no idea what machine you are installing this on, not all machines have a light up marquee. You can easily connect any factory 12v or 5v accessories using splitters and pigtails. Easily done.

3. Swapping to a different rom will correct this.

4. You will have to physically rotate the lcd on most A1U units. Pandora does not have a automatic rotate sadly.

Thank you for your business!

Pandora's Box KOA2 kit review

As advertised. Installed a week-or-so ago and did so in minutes. No issues so far. FYI, you will need a power amp to run your audio properly. You'll also need a spinner (for a healthy number of the titles) and a trackball for few other games. Out of the total of 524 games loaded on this thing, there are many wonderful titles. The emulator runs some things a little choppy - especially the Bally-Midway titles like Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, Super Pac Man, etc. There are hundreds of Japanese variations of the 194X series on this unit, as well. Gets a little old. The Russian softcore porn games are ridiculous (nudes via Qix). Default the porn crap is turned off and I recommend just leaving them that way.
All in all, it's a nifty little set-up and I recommend it to anyone who wants a quick mod to a vertical-format A1Up cab. Just remember that there a re few things beyond screws that you'll need so to make the thing complete.

I love this!

I installed this a few weeks ago, I love it! It's so nice to have all these vertical games (I think it has something like 550, and there are more but you have to unlock them). The kit was perfect and had everything I needed. Of course Shane answered all my questions. Highly recommend
