    Default Mario Bros. PCB in a dedicated Popeye Cabinet?

    I've got a 100% working popeye cabinet, and I found a reasonably priced Mario Bros. PCB. My question is, would I be able to easily switch out the Popeye PCB for the Mario Bros. one? Popeye has more than enough buttons for it, with a 4-was stick (MB only requires a 2 way).

    Thanks in advance to all you experts!

    If the original Popeye power supply is in there, then no. Mario needs +12 and -5 and they're not on a stock Popeye PS. But even if it's not, you'd be stuck playing single player Mario Bros.
    Selling collection, Atari through XBox. Send a PM with whatever games you're looking for.

    Ewwwww...right. I failed to think about that. Thanks!
