Back in the past too, this time april 2005 Roll Eyes

I had just done a RT in Belgium to recover an Atari Breakout
picture from the seller  Grin


it was supposed to work but I had not tested on site

a few picture of the day



Unfortunately I could not test it either at home because I had no place to store it , I had to leave for almost 2 years with a friend in a basement.

2 years after and a fist move, i get back the cab and finally can test it but it don't work. the PCB

when I started it the PCB has burnt out.  Cry

after several tries I was unable to repair the PCB


since then I have recovered several PCB but without success. I still have to take care of it of course  lol













Since 2006  the cab is waiting for a good PCB

A few weeks ago I received a new card that was supposed to work at least in attract mode

but not absolutely NOT Evil nothing on the screen .. shock

today I decide to work on it  Grin
First, finding a good place to do that







and now it works !!!

no wall but i can play


better & better

I have 7 PCB's, try all of them, some are modified like this one.


cleaned the contacts and I made some small welds - the good one (only  for 30 minutes)  is oxidized

If you still believe that you definitely need to read this:
http://classicgaming.gamespy.com/View.php?view=Articles.Detail&id=395

Mr. Jobs was (and still is) a master in business....not so much in technology.....as usual the technical guys end up with the least money.....

Also, the MAME rule is very simple: No processor, not in MAME. I'm sure Atarimania knew this, that's why he mentioned a (not so) good joke...
