Yeah baby, let's team up like Voltron!

The galaxian and the puckman look fabulous next to each other and are in perfect condition. the galaxian3 sign is a blast, we need to build one for bruno's opening Wink
Great games is good condition.
Certainly is a nice report, thanks for the photos. Out of curiosity, where is located?

Thanks Flip and Etienne for your information about the electricity and network cables, It will be useful.

No problem!

It' s amazing watching how a game room is building, like the Nuno tread! Grin Grin Grin Grin
Post more photo as possile.

Ckong: It's preferible take distance between ethernet cable and electricity cable, or if you can, put in a separate tube.
Etherne cable can take 100mt from an hub to other hub without connectivity problem.
However, for the little space of a small office (a room 3x3 mt) I need to made pass the ethernet cable with the elceticity cable: untill today, they work on internet and into the local network without problem.

Level 42: I have the same problem: I need to lost over 100Kgs.
My dietologist, give me a plan with everithing I can eat or not.
The milkshake isn't a good way to loose weight... is the opposite way: Your organism lost wather not "fat" material
 and, when You eat normally, He re-gains all the weight You lost plus other.
The correct diet is composite from all type of food, not excluding this or that.
The weight lost in a month can vary from 1Kg to a max of 5Kg (for a correct weight lost).
For example: Breakfast: fruit smoothie: apple 150gr pear 150gr semi-skimmed milk 100gr; Lunch: fresh beans in tomato sauce: beans 240gr, tomatoes 80gr, turkey breast grilled 70gr, raw or cooked fennel at will, oil 15gr, bread 40gr, oranges 260gr; Dinner: rice in vegetable broth 30gr, parmesan5gr, poached egg n°2, green beans with olive oil 250gr,oil 10gr, bread 40gr, pears 270gr.
The dietologist say: eat at Your will lot of fruit and vegetables!

Try an let Me know ( if You need I can scan the pages that I have of My diet, but are in Italian ). Wink

Nuno: Good choice, the C4 Grand Picasso is awesome!!!
I try here at a local Citröen dealer: it's enormus and very easy to drive!!!
I have a Picasso and, If I get a new work, I'm thinking to get or a C4 Picasso or the Gran Pigasso version.

Happy roadtrips Wink

Unfortunatly, not so much...

On the way back there was a Galaga in an autobahnstazion, but we didn't have time for that Grin Grin Grin

All these cabinets were also tricky gambling machines, the owners didn't want to pay the taxes, so they supplied a remote controlled switchboard and they can switch between the arcade and the gambling pcb  from the desk or from the bar, when they got controlled from the police.
Joust from inside with the 2 kinds of pcbs:

The modification is maded in Italy or by an Italian person  Wink Wink Wink

You can use 1,5mm or 1,00mm for "classic" pcb. For particular pcb (computer pcb) 0,80/0,60mm are preferible.

could you check what that guy on klov wrote, please - to me that's technobabble (like the stuff that geordi said on the enterprise Tongue)


From KLOV: "Andykmv: Diode D1 is probably a semtech corp IN5617 diode, which in the specs is listed as a fast recovery 400v 2a diode.
Diode D2 next to it should be a garden variety IN4001 rectifier diode.
not too sure on why you are getting a -ve 500 reading in the diode. the value is the forward voltage. probably stuffed so i would replace it.
Basically the two diodes form a simple switch arrangement so that during normal powered operation, power to the cmos ram circuit is provided by the 5v rail through D1, but when power is shut off, as the power supply circuit drops voltage, it reaches a level at which the battery backup for the CMOS ram takes over powering the cmos ram via D2 (around 4.7 volts iirc), and the cmos ram is write inhibited to prevent writing spurios data to cmos during shutdown..

R28 supplies power to the circuit that controls whether or not info is stored in the cmos ram, so if it is NOT getting power to that circuit, the game may want to come up in bookkeeping mode.

measure the voltage of at pin 11 IC51 (should be a 7425 or 74ls25 IC) - it should be roughly 4.75 to 5v with the game ON. you may also need to check the transistors

i would also check the operation of ZR1 (far left, 6.8v zener diode) and replace if the voltage is incorrect,

also the resistor, capacitor, transistor compoonents around that area are part of the RESET circuit which you really want operating properly. as yellowdog said, i would desolder any corroded components and replace with new components and fresh solder. inclding R28 & D1 (if you dont have an IN5617 avail, try an IN4001 temporarily) "

Andykmv is just sayng what tipe of diode are D1&D2 and which type You can choose to sobstitute.
R28 power the circuit of the ram, if it didn't work the game start in "bookkeeping mode".
Try to check on the IC51, the pin 11 for the voltage (between 4.75v and 5v game powered); also check the transistor aroun the IC.
For the ZR1 (is the diode zenere near the place of the batteries), check if put out 6.8V, otherway, replace.
In particular, chech the Reset circuit zone all the resistor, capacitor and transistor.
Yellowdos suggest to replace directly (whitout testing) all desoldered and corroded components included the R28, R26, D1 & D2.

Level42: alcohol isopropilic and "normal" alcohol are different.
