Looks indeed like Eric's Pile.

He does have a Crazy Kong left, i am sure of that ;-)

Nice Job !

As for kanji, look for "KanjiTomo" (https://www.kanjitomo.net)

It helped me alot with finding the Japanese characters.

I did host some of the artwork, but i dont offer it as a service.
VectorLib is a good alternative to host stuff

Zorg is also on this forum i believe  (http://vectorlib.free.fr)

Made a start with some parts..



Took the coindoor apart and cleaned all metal parts.




Coindoor itself looks decent, minor scratches, but no dents as far as i can see.




The plastic coin insert part also looks great from this coindoor.




Partially assembled, and cleaned the front.




I see that the lightbulbs are missing..  in fact the lampholders are also not there  Huh?




Time to dig in my shed, as i remember i still have another coindoor..
Found it, but is not in good state..
Well, at least i can steal some missing parts from this one, and yes, the original coindoor sticker also  Cool




I may need some other things from this, but for now i only need the lights.




Its a bit rusty, but it cleaned up pretty well.
At least good enough to apply some silver paint on the rusted spots.

Cleaned also 2 original buttons while i was at it, so they are now ready too and waiting for the control panel.

Looks like you're are missing sync on the MTC-900 - possibly the PCB is set the wrong sync polarity or the MTC-900 video input connections aren't correct.

The dipswitch of the 60-1 was set to VGA in the first picture, and after changing that to the other setting, the best i could get it was what you see in the picture
The hanta's have 2 sync wires, but only one is connected the other is cut in the harness which looks factory

So i have Ground, R, G, B and Sync connected in the jamma connector the right way.

That should work out of the box i believe as i have seen more 60in 1's on a MTC900

As Andre mentioned, we will trouble shoot it, and i will connect it to one of the known working Crazy kong boards that i have here to verify

I know that one of the monitors has a missing color, so i think thats a transistor issue of one of the output transistors
Will check it by swapping the chassis after we have one working to see if its the tube or the chassis, but i believe its the chassis

Also i have obtained another temp solution, A CRT VGA screen which is at least better than a TFT ;-)

I think i have the left coin pdb, but i see in the manual for the "Universal type" they used the right PCB

I have to check that, but good to know you have some Wink

Thanks, well i have thought about it, but what i only play as a casual gamer are donkey kong, pac games and galaga and a few others, and they play pretty well on the 60 in 1.

I thought about a mame setup, but i am too lazy to figure it all out and configure etc. and then the hussle of connecting the arcade monitor...

Anyway, i messed around with the two MTC-900's i have here but could not get any of the two correct, so i guess they need work.



after some fiddling with the pots:







So i have made a big sin...  i threw in a 19" 4:3 LCD....   roll eyes roll eyes roll eyes

The control panel was butcherd together with a bunch of crap buttons, but the mission was to play a game last weekend..

And you can see that my little helper, is not so little anymore after a few years...   Grin





Anyway, it plays, and now work on the other stuff.

PS. Digimon, pm me please, i need a powerboard with the cable to the edge connector. the one from the transformer assembly i have here.

The "regfrigurator fan" is also missing, so i need one of that too with the cage.

the coinboard i found, but its missing one connector, i need to figure out which one i have, the bottom or the top..

Thanks in advange

Marquee and CPO i will make, i have the plexi already, i just need to create the graphics to match the spacestation theme.

great, to see you back in arcade stuff.

If you need spare parts, I can send you nearly everything.

To my mind there is no Vanguard marquee available for this cabinet type.

I might need a powersupply board + Fan Assembly.
The transformer base i have 2 as far as i remember, its been a while  Cheesy

maybe a coin pcb, i have to check my inventory, its all over the place.

Coindoors, i also have 2 i believe.
Well i will see, good to know you have parts available.  Space Ace

That vector of the marquee i am very interested in, The CPO i also have in this format, but there are 2 different styles

Small and Big :





See the difference..  i have the wooden underpanel with the holes matching the small variant.

Looks like i have some vector work to do...

Hey guys,
Long time that i have posted here, but i want to take you guys with me on a journey that is waiting for a long time...

As you might know, my Zacc's where always at my mom's attic because of lack of space (and a complaining wife that did not want such a woodenbox in the house)

Well, as you also might know, that last barrier is not in my life anymore, so its time to bring the zacc that is left home.

The other dedicated Crazy kong was sold to CKONG, and he still has it as far as i know, leaves me with the 2e zacc which was parted out completely

Time to get this baby to my house as a winter project.



Moved the zacc from the attic downstairs, that was the hardest part, 2 narrow turning staircases, but its down  Cheesy




After transporting it in the car, its waiting to enter the house






This will be a nice spot to place the zacc




Installed the bezel, which has a little flaking unfortunately, but it has the same style as the side art.




Years ago i obtained a bootleg crazy kong marquee from SuperUlly, it will do for now.
If anyone has a Vanguard Marquee, i am interested, because that has the same artstyle as the cabinet and bezel
Same for the CPO, but i think i will have one made by Barry.




I have a bunch of parts still here, and in the pile i have 2 MTC900 monitors.
Lets see if at least one of them works




I have a Crazy kong Board set here, in fact, i have part 1 from Muerto many years ago, and i have a Part 2
The idea was to install both and use a switcher between them, but as i only have space for one cabinet, and i also like to play other games, i did order a 60 in 1, just to have some other games.
A pc with a mame setup could also be a solution for multigames, but to be honest, i am a bit tired of configuring the stuff and i want to use a real MTC 900, and thats also complicated with a pc setup.

Later more on this  Roll Eyes
