Thanks friends and congrats with your's as well of course !

Can't wait to bring this home and PLAY it :D

Of course I can now have a look at the power supply situation too (and compare with the Galaxian).

With a little bit of luck I'll be able to check it out myself tonight because RR's Pac Man is also inside my house... ;D

What is the state of your monitor? Mine has servere burn-in :?

Yep, see the picture of it above.

I've still got a NOS monitor in the box so it might go to this baby :D Not sure yet, want to see how much it hurts gameplay.

Yes!!!! I'm very happy for you! I remember when I got mine! Jesus! This game is so hard to catch here! Even If I got an empty cab, I can tell you I was screaming "WAAAAAHHOOOOOOOOOOO" like you  ;)
I can't wait to see all the 'Work In Progress" from all the new Ms Pac Man owners.... it'll give the motivation to start the work on mine  ::)

Once again, happy to see you didn't miss the opportunity. Thanks for sharing pictures and story here, like always  :-* :-* :-*

Did this machine come imported from the United States?  I see a penny in the bottom!   :D

What is the state of your monitor? Mine has servere burn-in :?

Most if not all ms. pac-mans at Paul's place have severe burn in. Mine does look the same as yours and André's. But you will not, or hardly, notice that during gameplay. Weird is that most Pac-man monitors at Paul's place didn't have burn in, although there was one with Joust engraved in it.

Yes, I saw that. Very strange when you consider that the Pac Man is even older

I'm hijacking your topic a little but I'm sure you won't mind. I just got the converter today and after installing  a new set of fuses the cabinet WORKED! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
The picture is clear and bright, the burn-in isn't noticeable and the joystick works fine.
The only problem is this f*%#ing speed chip, but that's all.
I hope you'll will be able to play yours soon, I still can't believe that we all got a Pac Man cab  :o

Great news, big chance your other 2 cab's and muerto's one will also work. What a wonderful deal, thanks again for making this happen.
