Nice catch Gyruss. The cab is indeed a bit odd looking, but it's the gameplay that counts, and Spy Hunter is a very fun game. I hope that you get it on its feet soon, would love to play a bit on it when I collect my monitors.  Smiley

Thanks Eric, but don't get you hopes up, it's going to take some time.

First things to do is replace those inter-board ribbon cables. They cause all kinds of problems.

Thanks, are these for sale somewhere or do you have to make them yourself?


Make sure the battery on that MCR power supply in it isn't leaking... otherwise you'd better remove it asap. This is a common cause of failure in all these Midway games. However there's a kit that allows the use of a modern switching power supply in them.


Yes, I already read about the issue and the replacement power supply, i'll cleand the inside today and will check if it's still intact.


Regading the sparks behind the monitors, I had that scary problem with a cab I bought a few months ago and Kid found the solution for "electronoob me" (the post is in french but the pictures are self explanatory, that's an easy fix).
Not sure it's exately the same problem you're having though...


My france is really bad so don't understand everything of it. Guys on klov think it maybe a hairline fracture in the tube.

You can probably do it with scsi cables but getting the right length is a bit of a problem.
The easiest route is Bob Roberts: http://www.therealbobroberts.net/mcr.html

He also sells battery kits for MCR games and other rebuild kits.
