Candy Cabinet Info

Welcome to Hard--Candy, a Wiki project dedicated to documenting Japanese-style ("candy") arcade cabinets.

As of now we will also be gathering parts manuals for future repairs and renovations of our beloved Japanese Candy Cabinets.

This entire website is designed to be edited and maintained by enthusiasts in the online community. Wherever you feel like you might have information to contribute, feel free to edit any entries as you see fit. All we ask is that you not vandalize entries and that you make your best attempt to post information correctly and objectively.

Be sure to start by checking out the Cabinet List, and the
Editing FAQ.

Enjoy the site!

Today we made some new adjustments to the site. Not only did we publish the article Top 25 Candy Cabs of 2018 but we also added a donation button as we received quite a nice amount of requests if it was possible to contribute to the website. Now you can. Not only by clicking on the banners but also by donating directly. This will help us pay for the hosting costs and any contribution is highly appreciated.

Thank you all for your continued support, for enjoying the content and appreciating our work!

mario star21 December 2018 | MVS Hardware Updatemario star

The last couple of days we made a couple of massive updates. Now that HardMVS.com is offline we wanted to preserve all MVS manuals and therefore added these to our Candy Parts overview for future reference. Furthermore we added a couple of monitors from Nanao and Wells-Gardner. Have you notices we now have an arcade map as well? Last but not least we made some changes to the layout of the site to make it easier for you to navigate through the website. Hope you all will enjoy the enhancements. If you have any suggestions for improvements please let us know through our contact page (link in the footer of the site).
