1  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: Q*bert. A man and his grail... FINISHED !!! on: October 12, 2015, 06:09:50 PM
Played Q*bert with my 5 years old yesterday and of course, he made his Q*bert fall out of the grid.
When the knockers knocked, my kid naturally said: "Q*bert fell at the bottom of your cab" and he started looking down.


That sound is clearly supposed to emulate the sound of the little characters falling from the grid all the way down and hitting the bottom of your cabinet.
I bet if you open the backdoor right after a game, you can see a few Coilys and Q*bert knocked down lying next to the power supply.
After all these years I finally got it Smiley

Perfect job!
You probably already know about the freeplay EPROM but just in case: http://www.arcadecollecting.com/hacks/tron/
It's the final touch imho  Wink

I noticed on the picture below that your machine also has those weird lines on the right of the screen.
My TRON also has them, I thought for a long time that it was a graphical glitch, but apparently "it's not a bug, it's a feature"  Grin

i would say, just scan the other side corner, mirror it and just print a patch. You see these also for pinball playfields where there is wear on one specific area.
Yes  +1
... and that's in the "easiest area" of the design: only a plain black background and a plain red curved shape.

Maybe it's not your PCB but your power supply that is acting weird?
To rule it out you could try to feed your PCB with a "modern switcher" so the +5 -5 and +12 are 100% reliable and see if the same problems occurs.
