Arcade Lifestyle / latest pickup
« on: September 17, 2022, 09:03:40 AM »
Hi folks,

just a short little update from my latest pickup last sunday.
I got an Sega Monaco GP built in 1980. Same state and about 3h drive in total ( rainy weather off course ).
Even if I wasnt on the search for this game, I saw that the seller was offering this game now for a few weeks, so I made an offer from my side and we came to an agreement.

The game works so far, I just did some cab cleaning and found some problems with the fan power cables which I was able to fix.
And the game is tiny, I was able to squeeze it into my gameroom between the bookshelf and the NeoGeo  ;D

Well, I am really impressed by the gameplay/graphics, I mean its an 1980?s game ( developed 1979 if i read correct ) using TTL chips ( like space invaders ).

Next goal - finding a bigger place for my games ( well its already a long term goal, im looking for about 3 years now )

Arcade Lifestyle / 2 new projects
« on: July 25, 2022, 09:35:38 PM »
Yeah yeah, I know - I already have enough projects ( which will last for years with my repair progress ) but there was an opportunity and.. I have slept a few nights over this decision... the shipping day came close for the first cab and yes, I purchased a 2nd game from blackforest warehouse.

It is:

( hope its ok to link  this since its quick and easy and here is no upload possibility )

Mario Bros and Spy Hunter.

Man, that Mario Bros ( serial number #48 !! ) needs a TON of love. Its super smelly from mold which remembers me at my dkjr and joust purchase and the wood is damaged all around the cab. Off course I need everything new ( marquee, bezel, cp overlay, sideart ) but im already in contact with Barry - I rly like his work. The PSU is ripped appart and the joysticks are stuck. Ah I almost forgot, some cords like the power cord are simply cut off - I dont know what was the matter in the states, but I will give that MB a bit more love here  ;) ;D

Ok Spy Hunter, nice old game so far. The cab itself is in pretty good condition, but the bezel, cp overlay and sideart needs to be replaced. The steering handle needs some new color too, lets see if I can use my powder coating to refurbish this?

So far, im again almost out of space ( many cab?s are stored away from home ) and yeah, buying games now is getting pricey if they are from the states...

Hi guys,

there was an arcade machine  offered for sale at the austrian online bazar, which I would have a) never bought for that money and b) well I wasnt really looking for this game anyways.

Well however, now it?s sitting in my garage  ??? ;)

I contacted the seller and told him what I was willing to pay for it, he gave me his numbers and we found an agreement ( well on the way to him, I was asking myself what am i?m doing )

Here we start and soon, I hit the old known highway bridge. Maybe you will recognize it from one of my earlier roadtrips, now with a 2nd bridge beside the main one. But hey, whats that, some hint about the purchase? :D

Sorry, no pictures at the sellers place, but here a 2nd little teaser on the way back...

Sidestop by an collectors friend, a little gossip and presentation of the newest purchase, then it was time for a lunch ( well the meal got served after this following picture )

And now at home, you will see what I got ( rolling drums )

It is the well known....

Super Invaders!

Built in 78 or 79 and look at this beautiful condition

nice coindoor, some Atari machine?s had them too.

Off course, the game doesnt run. Because the metal backdoor was put aside, we nearly bent the pcb while packing the cab into my SantaFe, which moved out of the cab.

Ok whats next? Cleaning, fixing and playing...

Finished with:  245 km, 4h trip ( incl sidestop and lunch ), 1 neighbour state visited, a few Euro?s and space shorter...

Technical Area / Re: Asterock Soundboard help needed

Technical Area / Asterock Soundboard help needed
« on: July 10, 2022, 01:45:16 PM »
Hi guys,

right now I have spent some time fixing the asterock, again.

Last time, I have checked the caps on the soundboard - however, I didnt put the 3 big caps back on to the soundboard and guess what, I put the soundboard into the cab and forgot about the caps. Off course I cant find them anymore.
At this picture, they should be left of the 2 grey caps, mounted horizontal to the board.

The manual on page 4 just says "C12-C14" without any info which caps they should be ( mF and voltage ). -->

Can someone of you help me to find out which caps they would be? If someone owns an Asterock, can you have a look if there are stats written on your caps, so I can purchase 3 new ones?

Any help to fix my stupid error is very appreciated :D
