Arcade Lifestyle / ARDUINO project for classic cabinets
« on: April 05, 2018, 07:15:02 PM »
a couple of years ago I needed to make something in order to set old games in free play. In fact some games don't support free play mode and some others haven't attract mode if free play is set.
I used an Arduino to do that. Pressing START1 arduino first of all inserts a coin and then press START1. THe same for START2, inserting 2 coins instead of one. I used Arduino Nano and a relay board. Cost of the kit less than 5 euros.
But now this project evolved.
Now this Arduino implements a Bluetooth protocol and using a smartphone you can
- activate/deactivate free play mode.
- power on/off the game
- reset the game
- insert coins / press start buttons
- activate test mode
- press service buttons
- modify delays between coins or buttons
- activate/deactivate coins (stop playing)
- control the status of several counters (supports counters for free play mode and for coin mode, save separately single games and double games
- activate/deactivate sound
Setup is saved on its EEPROM so Arduino remembers the last status.
Is it useful? Actually I don't know.
It can be useful during arcade events so you can interact with the game without opening it but actually this is only an experiment.
The smartphone app doesn't exist yet (next step), I'm using a BlueTooth terminal application now.
Am I wasting my time? Any suggestion?
For instance: internal temperature monitor? voltage control?

Arcade Lifestyle / Ok, good boys, now I need ZAC FROGGER pics :)
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:34:31 PM »
Hi there,
thanks to Q*ris now I have "OFF LIMITS" pics I need  :spaceace:

Actually I need pics of a lot of zac cabs but now I'd like to work on frogger.

I can see Frogger is in 2 different shapes (see pics), so I'm interested in both cabs.
For sure I need a picture like the ASTRO WARS I attached . Not relevant the background, just please pay attention to reflections

I need picture of other parts too, as:
- side art
- glass
- any other pic you want: pcb, internal/external details...

if you have the cab and you are bored just with the idea to take pics I can come (if in Europe) on spring with some beers with my camera  ;D ;D ;D
it is valid for any other zac cab you have ahah

Arcade Lifestyle / I want to tell you a story...
« on: October 30, 2017, 12:29:08 AM »
Twelve years ago I moved to Bologna for a new job. I was quite excited because I had the opportunity to work with the greatest arcade actors made the Italian arcade history, as Zaccaria and many others you probably don't know.
I designed gaming machines as slot machines and fruit machines for many years but this wasn't the job of my dreams and during the last 3 years I suffered more and more.
So in the beginning of last summer I left my workplace and transferred to Milano where I opened "Vernimark Noleggio Videogiochi" that we can translate as Vernimark Videogames Rental service.
I'm offering now the possibility to have classic arcades in corporate events. Companies, event managers or communication agencies can organize events using my arcades or pinballs. I'm available for shootings or video clips too.
This service is quite new here in Italy and I have few competitors and some of them are friends.
Here is the web site
And these are the available arcades at the moment
And you can find Vernimark Noleggio Videogiochi on facebook.
It's in Italian, i m sorry.

Now I'm setting up a showroom and with the few money remained I will try to find some classics I still miss (my collection has my favourite games, not the most wanted).

Let's cross the fingers!

Technical Area / tempest coupler
« on: June 07, 2017, 01:58:03 AM »
I report here the post made in VECTORLIST hoping someone here can help me:

Hi all,
I have 3 tempest boards. two work fine, while the third has a problem with the spinner direction.
using a Taito spinner all 3 boards work fine so I started to analyze the atari spinner behaviour first.

What I could see is one of the 2 square waves is "lower" than the other and this seems to have impact one one of the boards only.

Going to the board I can see  both waves arrive to the MC14584B in E6 correctly but the lower wave doesn't exit from this component  properly (pin 12). Inverting speed and direction pins, the problem persists (but in pin 6); so, the problem is definitely caused by the "lower" wave).
 I replaced this component (with a 7414) but nothing changed.

So my questions are:

why this happens on this board only?

just in case, is there a good source for OPB2208 coupler? or is there a cheap replacement?

Arcade Lifestyle / M.A.C.H.3 sit down
« on: May 31, 2017, 01:21:37 AM »
Hi all,
it's a bit of time I don't post but I'm having some troubles with my job and I want to move back from Bologna to Milano. Not so far, 200km but moving all my stuff including arcades is quite complicated :)

Anyway last year I trade some stuff with a MACH3 sit down and last week I picked up it.
It has been converted in a race game. Aesthetically only the CP has been replaced (and pedals have been added) but the rest of the cab is in good shape.

I have all missing parts with the exception of the control panel overlay. I have some screenshots taken from youtube but I can't read the text entirely.

do you have some better pictures?

thank you
