I'm just trying the waters here.....

The thing is I might need to give this one up so I can put my JD pinball in my gameroom.

I did invest a lot of money into it (the famous CPO and the original marquee were both pretty expensive) and as usual I don't need to make a profit but would like to see the invested money returned (mostly)...

The current condition of the machine is not working. I was in the process of installing a 48in1, BUT RobinHolland got the original PCB up and running on his test-bench. The PCB however, is of poor build quality and I haven't tested it in the machine yet.

If the sale goes on, I will have to exchange my Midway Pac joysticks, because I won't let that carefully restored Pac Joystick go, however, as mentioned, the original joystick from my Ms. Pac will be included.

Of course the CPO is brand new. The marquee is like new. There is some minor flaking of the bezel. The side-art is in OK condition, but of course with the usual wear.

The monitor needs a cap-kit but works. (Hantarex).

So let me know if anyone's interested and we'll discuss things. I'm pretty sure I can't get the full investment back, but I'm a reasonable guy :)

Yeah...well about the other 4568 games that  I do not have in my gameroom.

Plus it is supposed to double as a jukebox for the gameroom....

JD......yes it did cross my mind. Let's say that I'm open for offers. Thing is that my wife and son like it a lot, but I haven't seen them playing much lately.....

pinball vs video game - a no brainer to me (but that you already knew). if i were you, andré, i wouldn't sell it, because you invested so much in this cab (not just money-wise) that it would be sad to see it go. however, the question is: would it get a lot of playtime when one of your grails, ms pac-man, is sitting right next to it ... ?
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Exactly the whole point Ully, I don't _really_ need 2 Pac cabs.
As you know I have to keep focus on games I REALLY REALLY REALLY want and enjoy playing for the Gameroom. I am forced to be picky because of the limited space.

Of course, the Puckman arrived WAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY before I got the Ms.Pac and the choice between the two...well no need to explain. Also, I still plan on getting a (simple) multi-pac for it, yeah I know you don't like it but at least that way I can play both Pac and Ms.Pac.

Pinball....I love pinball. I think no gameroom is complete without at least one. Just like no Gameroom is complete without a vector game. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  Pins do take loads of space though...

Totally, because the THIRD thing that every gameroom should have is a classic B/W game (Raster, doesn't count to take f.i. Asteroids and say, hey, this is B/W AND Vector). ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

...and so is mine which is just G_R_E_A_T !
How sad would our lives be if our quest was finished for ever?

EDIT: the only pinball I would ever consider buying one day in a not so near future and in a galaxy far far away is the simpsons.
I really had fun playing it once.

I'll just quit the hobby then.  ;)

Seriously, i think every game room should have a a game with special controls (star wars, paperboy, operation wolf, outrun etc).
Those games made me want to visit an arcade back in the day, because i couldn't really play them on my console.

I wouldn't mind a cool vector game thou, really like the minimalistic look, high resolution and glow.  :D
