Last year i bought a dig dug in Germany, and heres how it went down.

Picked up the game at my working place..



Got it on a trailer, and drove home....  Grin Grin Grin



3 mins later it was unloadet, and in the Shed:



Started unwrapping it (nice wrapping job btw!)



At a distance it looks ok, but this will need some work!



Left sideart



Right sideart



Inside



And the best thing! - brand new monitor!  Shocked



Yes! - the real US stuff!



...



One Island, one town, 1.3 kilometers, 3 minutes on the road - this roadtrip is OFFICIALLY OVER! lol

nice catch, michael! and the american version is so much nicer than the european woodgrain style. condition of the cab doesn't look too good, new overlay is the least it could use! nevertheless: great game. and: one down in your "cab style quest"  Wink (insider)

Got some time today, so i lined the Centipede and the Dig Dug up next to each other, because, they should match in shape like the US nintendo Dk and DKJ....... but NO!...Huh?....!!!! wtf??









First i thought it was because the centipede was irish build, i checked KLOV, and.... it seems like the US version of centipede match the EU one..:



also Arabian, Kangaroo and Food Fight follows the Dig Dug style cab...:



well, so much for matching cabs..... Tongue Tongue Tongue

Well.... hehe, my brother visited me earlier today, and i told him the Dig Dug keeps blowing fuses...
so he had a look at it, and a look at the schematic for the power supply (he is a fly electrician)

First he removed the bridge who set up the power supply for 110W, and was about to change it to 240W (thats why there´s a leg pulled)



then i remembered that the same power supply was installed in my Centipede, and there was an extra bridge for 240W, so he used that... (Brown wires)



Though there was a thingy blown on the ARII board...



We powered it up, this was on the monitor:



HOLY SHIAT! - lol, i bought this as _NON_ working, so i guess the guy dose´nt know that much about power supply´s! (even i know more about them now!  Cheesy)

Great! easy fix then Cheesy

Though there was a thingy blown on the ARII board...


That is a huge burn mark! So the game works 100% with that burned component (diode/resistor)?

yes, the game works 100% - though, it reset one time after 20 min. but run flawless again after that!
but i´m going to buy a new ARII pcb for it!

Regarding the different cab sizes, i really don´t care Smiley - however, i was planning to buy some Centipedes and convert them into Arabian and Kangaroo, but then they will have the wrong shape now..   Undecided Undecided
