Ah I see, well im super happy if Berzerk runs :-D

Thx Etienne for the link, today I asked the guys in the german arcade zone (again) holes into their stomach and I purchased 40 pin cables via amazon. I just cut the cables I dont need away and I can go further with my rebuild :-D

Yesterday, I cleaned the cab, 5 buckets full with really dirty water! But I can see a difference now. So tomorrow, I pick up the metal parts from the sandblasting guy and then its ready to paint ( or powdercoat, hmm ).

40 pins uh, thats 20 per side..  you miss 3 wires then, or not ?

But is there that much difference between berzerk and frenzy ( havent played frenzy once )?

It's basicly 2 different games - you can shoot the walls in Frenzy, but you can't in Berzerk.
Also, there's 2 versions of Berzerk on the BZF, Berzerk Slow Bullets and Berzerk Fast Bueelts..

I believe old style SCSI cables are what you are looking for, they are 50 pin double, so 1 row covers 25  Wink

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-30-50-Pin-SCSI-Internal-Ribbon-Flat-Cable-F-F-5-Connector-4-Device-Drive-/272665150059




Alpha1, find me the Amplifone boards and I send you as many replacement Berzerk cables as you want ! Wink Wink Wink

Seriously, I stole the idea to buy a SCSI cable and cut it up from here:

http://www.wowway.com/%7Eookpik72/brl.html

Of course you have to sand the sides a bit to make them fit. Also since SCSI is 50 pins (and you use only the top half), so this leaves 2 unused pins on one side.)

I got the SCSI "tower" cable with 8 connectors from a large on-line computer seller which happens to be "around the corner" from me for only 9 Euro's:
http://www.alternate.nl/html/product/Kabels_U-SCSI/Advance_Peripherals/SCSI-tower-kabel/-1002674/?tn=HARDWARE&l1=Kabels&l2=U-SCSI

From one cable you can make 4 flat-cables, so you need more if you need to replace more of them.

Well I wont sell it instantly :-D  And yes, it has frenzy too. But is there that much difference between berzerk and frenzy ( havent played frenzy once )?
Anyways, my main goal now is to go with the original hardware. And I realized that im missing the filter board and single row 23 pin ribbon cables  roll eyes.
I know its not pretty but I guess I will go with jumperwires in the meantime, they are cheap and should work too.

May I suggest you hold on to the JROK board, because the original boards are su unstable, it will be a matter of time before they not working properly.. Smiley

Hi guys,

I posted the arrive of my berzerk here and since yesterday, I decided to to a full restoration instead of only fix it that it runs.
Reason was when I saw all the rust, I dismounted near every metal part and brought it to the sandblasting guy.
Tomorrow, I will clean the empty cab and have a look at the "modified" wiring harness ( the operator where I bought it from cut a few wires off to put a jamma connector on it ).
The G07 isnt working either, the width coil is damaged ( common problem ), but I already ordered parts from the states.

About the cab and sideart: I just wanna clean the cab and dont wanna respray it because im really happy with the sideart. And if im going to touch up the black color, I have to color it so carefully around the blue and red graphics. No, im not lazy I just know my skills  Grin  So I will brush it down with water and a sponge.






The marquee was colored completely black, with paint remover there came astro invader back to life. Well, not the correct marquee, so I ordered a used 1 from ebay usa.




There was "Rastan Saga" mounted in the cab and as you can see, they scratched off the overlay from the control panel and put a 2nd ( or 3rd ) button into it  Evil
Since I refuse to pay 250,- for a repro, I thought I will go with an overlay. But if im lucky, I can get a used cp from a nice guy  Cheesy
But luckily, I got the original berzerk pcbs in an extra box.




Here you can see the burn-in in the G07. Well as I wrote, I have to fix the chassis, but I still have a few nice tubes in the garage. Lets have a look when everything is running, maybe you cant see the burn in that much.

Ah and btw, I already ordered a JROK pcb for the cab, because its bullet proof ( more or less ) and the harness was already adapted for a jamma connection.
But then we had an interesting discussion/input from Jochen at the german forum and that made me think about it again. And since I really enjoyed the restored DK Jr and Defender, I think I will give the original board a try and fix it ( or let it fix from someone who can do that ^^ ). That too was the reason I decded to dismount, derust and repaint all the metal parts. And if the original board runs, maybe I can offer you a JROK board?  Grin

Man, since Arcadiafest in hungary, I cant wait to play berzerk again  Grin

Edit:
Ah yes, nearly forgot to ask you, if some has a spare plastic inlet - the one which says 25 cent and with that grey plastic behind of it? ( picture is from the web )
