I think that the sound has distorted when I was recording on the iPhone, I know its not perfect picture but its better than Mame standard and I still haven't seen a 25" colour vector monitor turn up anyway. So this suits me, much brighter than normal mame

Just back on this……

I thought I'd post a HD video, well iPhone video of my Starwars cockpit running with a special complied version of Mame 141, this version can found on Mameworld forums… It was created by RJ Roberts who wrote some diiff code for blurring / phosphorus brightening…. Its CPU heavy but the display is very bright and can be adjusted to taste. I think its very close…

I thought I'd share it with you.

I have included the easy/medium/hard waves to show the different  stages.

What do you think?

First class restoration!!!!!

Great attention to detail... And a great game!!!!

Andre... I am interested in a scan of the CP... I also need to replace the bezel, you can't see it but there is a hair line scratch across the words Space Invaders.... Blast !!

A nice scan of both... I would really appreciate

Or better still originals spares of both if anybody has them for sale???

 Thanks Andre!!

I followed both yours and Bruno's restoration technics to bring her back to life...

All the original wiring is still inside, one day I may restore it back to the factory hardware but finding these parts is unlikely...

Another cab saved from being parted out.

May the force be with us

Well you are right!! Zaccaria CPO is not very nice but its all i've got!!

it was made for Space invaders hack called Super Earth Invasion... not bad game actually

But I am after the original Taito CP, the jap one with the buttons..

You can find loads of Midway repros but not Tatio

The new CP and yoke back on the cab....

All the parts are now fitted on the cab

Now to hook up the marquee.... switch on!

What a beauty!!!

Ok, lets play Star Wars

Now after all thoes plans to use AAE I ended up just using Mame and tweaking It the best I could to get it looking like a vector display.

It's not perfect but i did start with just a shell.

Using Mame means I can play other games too...

The Trilogy

Or even laser disc games like Firefox......"Boy is this a machine"

Plus an assortment of arcade favs...

Galaxy force 2...

The mighty Stun Runner

Sega's Thunder blade

And the G-loc series...

Space Harrier!!!!

The Jedi has returned.... and I'm very happy with it!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

I have just restored a Taito Space invaders it has a Zaccaria CP which has buttons instead of a joystick

Sorry for the delay in pics, photobucket had a site issue for two days...

I have owned my Dragons Lair II cab for a long time, but I like Space Ace better than DL II. Now I know there was a Space Ace 91 upgrade kit available. My idea was two buy another control panel and buy this upgrade kit and then just swap the artwork when I fancy a change... This way is does not destroy the cab permanently.

Thanks to Finny for the spare panel and buttons, Thanks to Bruno for the Space Ace 91 control decal and marquee...

Just change the panel and marquee and it is a different game...

Back again,

The cab has been painted and strengthened. It’s now time to put brand new t--moulding on her.

I also stripped down all the steel parts.

Then primer and paint using Hammerite metal smooth black.

And all the bolts and screws.

After painting.....

I also managed to track a down an original yoke from Quartercade in fair condition, it needed a Ram Controls re-build kit....

All retainers are painted and the t-moulding is in place, its time to fit a monitor. I'm using a Hantarex Polo 25"... can't find a real vector monitor

I also ordered new decals from This Old Game for the yoke and the panel...look at this before and after of the panel with no yoke.

Now look.....!!!


Yoke also looks nice...

And the two together...

Now to connect to an Apac for usb Pc connection...

Getting close to the end now.

Just a back door to make, fix the marquee light and add an audio amplifier..

Back soon
