I don't know if it's true or not, but in France a urban legend says that bank transfers can be canceled up to 3~4 weeks later.
Cheque is not highly secured either, due to risk of lack of money on the bank account, stolen document, ...

If I has to receive such payment, I would only accept bank transfer / cheque from somebody I trust, or somebody recommended by someone I trust.

But anything may be sent abroad, regardless of how it was paid... Only nosense here.

My 0,02 €.

Hi all.

There are here some gentlemen strongly interresting in buying this cabinet.
I said I can't setup the cabinet for shipping with carrier (palett, cardboard, straps, ...).
I understand it's not possible for these gentlemen to drive kilometers/miles. Moreover, the carrier option is much more economical and it's the best choice in this situation !
So, I decided to try and do my best to have it shipped !

With this new information, I want to be fair and honnest and respect messages order :
1. Ordyne on March 20, 2016, 01:16:28 PM
2. Alpha1 on March 20, 2016, 01:20:56 PM
3. Segasurvivor on March 20, 2016, 11:42:52 PM

So, based on the fact that the cabinet will be on a palett, protected and shipped using a carrier (at buyer's expense), could you please confirm/cancel your option ?

Wife said she could get a palett at her office.
I should be able to get strong Nylon straps by a friend.
Cardboard can be found on streets on Tuesdays in the big city closed to home, said wife.
So, there are no problem, only challenges !  Wink

If you can pallet this ready for shipping I will take it.

I would love to be able to pallet it but I really have not possibility for such an operation.
I don't have pallet/cardboard/straps or any usual material needed for this !  Embarrassed

5  General Chat / 'Business' Area : Buy/Sell/Trade / [SOLD] SEGA Gee Bee cabinet on: March 19, 2016, 09:50:58 PM

I'm selling a working SEGA Gee Bee upright cabinet :

It's in very good condition.
PCB is from Namco.
Pot is new and is very smooth.
Nice panel with game instructions in french.
Back door is missing, but I provide with a clean wood backboard (sorry, not sure of the translation) to be fitted. I was too lazy to finish that part.
Little screen burn, but you don't see it during play.
Can post more pictures on request.

Price : 350,00 EUR

Cabinet is to be picked up in France near Besançon :

This cabinet should have found a new home tomorrow afternoon.

For sale is my Atari Missile commande upright game :

Screen and PCB are both working.  Smiley
Trackball has been restored and is greatly working.
Screen has a new capkit. PCB power supply too.
There is a piece of wood missing (bottom left side) and I was too lazy to rebuilt it !
Can post more pictures on request.

Price : 700,00 EUR.

Resistors are probably the last RGB digital to analog convert step.
See the two 74LS174 latches close to the resistors ?
They bring 2 x 6 latches = 12 latches and you have 12 resistors...
12 / 3 = 4 bits for each color.

In my opinion, you have a faulty video RAM.
Not palette RAM (that stores color for each palette index), but screen content RAM, that stores indexes to palette RAM.
When you change the "screen flip" dip switch, you see that the glitch doesn't flip.
For me it means the internal way of handling screen flip is managed by changing how the screen RAM is written, and the read process is unchanged.

If ever you have a logic analyzer, you may solve this easily.
On this message, I explain how to user advanced triggering to capture the exact needed scan line.

It is modded for DC voltage supply instead of the original AC supply. You can see that where the orange wires are hacked in (and the rectifying diodes removed).

Yep. The PCB edge connector has burn traces.
There is also a big ceramic resistor missing, involved in the voltage regulator. Capacitors have been removed/changed.

It's pretty weird if your programmer cannot read 2516's. If it can read 2716's than it can read 2516's too as these are the same:

In fact, I didn't went through the 2516 datasheet.  Roll Eyes
I assumed that "25xx" = old EPROM with tripple voltage input (-5/+5/+12), which is wrong !

Not sure how you ID your ROM files using MAME

Open command-line tools, CD to Mame's executable folder and invoke this command :

mame -romident file.bin

Example :

As PaulSwan said, no need to have any ROM set stored on your hard drive.
Mame uses its internal build-in database to answer this request.

Same pcb as a Galaxian pcb

Yeah, seems you got it.  Kiss
It's very close to a Galaxian hardware indeed !

Looks like its missing the power regulator

Yep, I forgot to mention this.
There was probably a TO3 +5V voltage regulator on the top-right corner.
The tracks side of the PCB shows unsoldering actions.

Thanks a lot.
11  General Chat / Technical Area / Can you identify this PCB ? on: February 11, 2013, 06:52:49 AM

This PCB has been on a shelf at home for a long.
Could you please help me to identify it ?

All original chips where build on 1979 ~ 1980.
Big black chip on bottom is a Z80 CPU.
It seems to have 5 x Texas 2516 EPROMS as CPU code.
In the middle is missing a 2101 RAM chip (empty socket), removed by me some years ago.
On the left, there are 2 other Texas 2516 EPROMS (gfx Huh? ).
On the top left corner, there are 5 x DIL-16 chips on a socket, with maybe 2 missing chips.

I could dump EPROMs and ask MAME to identify dumps, but my EPROM programmer doesn't handle 2516's.

It looks like an Atari PCB for me, but all Atari PCB I own do have an explicit visible Atari signature on them.

Thanks for your help !  Smiley

Jochen Hippel...... How crazy is this!!

[off topic]
Oh my god...  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
Mad Max was my ultimate music author in the late 80's and in the 90's !
At that time I was an Atari ST demo maker and great fan of his chip tunes.
I hope to get the chance to shake hands with him one day....

BTW, great road-trip !  Smiley
Twin games are hard to handle.
I still remember when I unloaded my GTI Club from my trailer...   Undecided
