Thanks to all of you for your nice comments  Kiss

especially since the game is working. i'll have to do some practice on my rally and then we can head off face to face: two old dudes, two white lines, one white block - PONG Space Ace
I've exactly same problem than your Rally regarding one potentiometer... should be an easy fix... just have to check what is the potentiometer model.
Yes, you can practice on your Rally... because I'll challenge you on Pong when we'll meet together  Wink

Is there anything you haven't got??

Yes... a Sega R360, Kung Fu Master, EDOT, Starhawk ... and ... well ... some other 'relatively more easy' games to catch (I mean more easy than Computer Space or Pong for example  Cool) I still don't have like Asteroids, Assault, ...I would like also to add one or two mechanical games also... and why not more pinballs... without talking about dozens of 'nice to have' games to add  Roll Eyes
So I'm afraid I still have the virus  Grin

Awesome! Lovin' the Dragon's Lair Animation Cel too. Is that yours? Superb shot of Dirk!

Yes, I've used that Dragon's Lair Cel in order to hide the box of diet coke -used to maintain the garlands on the PonG-  Grin
Once my new game room finished, I'll frame & display all these Dragon's Lair / Space Ace Cels 'proudly' on the walls  Tongue

Great neighbour for that Computer Space.

Yeps Blanka, next time you'll be able to make great pictures of the two games  Wink

Original hardware inside ? Smiley

Yeps, original board.
Note that the two knobs are not the same... very similar but not the same.
I'll take a lot of picture of this baby.  Smiley

Thanks  Kiss

It's funny... I remember 4 years ago... in the GAME ON UK exhibition, both games were there... flashback  Wink  arrow





Of course, I was hoping to own both of them one day... but didn't really expected to have them so 'quickly' at the end (does 4 years is quick?). So everything happens... hey, it's the magic of Xmas after all  Roll Eyes Grin Tongue

Very, very nice catch Bruno, congratulations on that one. I was fortuante enough to see one in real myself this year and it is a beautiful machine. A must have in every serious collection.

but please get rid of the xmas decoration on it, it doesn't look good, in fact it's a sacrilege.  Wink

How time flies... more than 1 year later, and no more update on this? Shame on me  oppps!

Ok, that Pong is since a long time 'cleaned' of course... I didn't repeated the XMAS Pong tree this year  Smiley :



Found this in the 'coin reject'... yes! It's made in USA  Grin  arrow



Now let's find its identity... Damn it! No serial number sticker  Lips Sealed ... it was supposed to be here  arrow



Thanks to Etienne, it will be possible to reproduce it, but I would like to use its real serial number, so let's check inside the cabinet if I can find it somewhere...



Mhhh nothing so far...



...maybe the value printed on the board "0920" ?  arrow



Let's check the rest of the cabinet... Well, the PONG is almost an empty box as you can see ...





Love to find old 'things' hidden on the cab  Tongue This time, it's this  arrow



I presume it's the box from the current potentiometers used to replace the original ones... to check!

Hey, I didn't notice... I have the original backdoor sheet  Smiley  arrow



Closer...



OK, I need some help now regarding the *missing* serial number. Is there some PONG owners here (Alpha1, Atarimania, ?) who have the SN on their Pong ?
I need the exact size of this sticker  arrow



I didn't find any value inside the cabinet, expect the value printed on the board. Does the SN would match that value for you ? Thx for help guys  Cool

Gotta love that Hitachi TV in there ! It still has the areal, with some modding you can watch TV too WinkWinkWink (unless you guys dont have analogue terrestial TV transmitters
anymore like we....)


Something I never noticed, the operator always had to empty the coin "scale" through the backdoor !!! Not very handy...

And funny they say "PONG Computer" in that backdoor sheet....it doesnt have a processor, but technically I think you can say that it has inputs, outputs and some processing going on so yes, it's a computer allright WinkWinkWink
