Trivia

According to one contributor (assumedly, the creator of "10-S"):WindJammers is a flying disc game the idea of which is based on the real world flying disc sport 10-S. As the inventor I never gave permission nor signed any agreement to allow Neo Geo or Data East to use 10-S as a model for Windjammers and I have never been compensated for the illegal use of 10-S rules and method of play. 10-S was created in 1977 and copyrighted in 1980. http://www.thesport.com/

Cabinet Information

The game is normally housed in a standard Neo-Geo cabinet, but it may be converted to a standard JAMMA cabinet without much effort.

Conversion

Since this is a Neo-Geo System title, any Neo-Geo cartridge can be swapped in its place. Other titles require three or more buttons so a little wiring may be needed to play these games in a standard JAMMA machine.
