Hi, nice machine, but sure a lot of work. Good that you have working hardware now.
About the HDD: I'm sure that if you find another guy with the same machine, he can give you some backups. This might also be interesting for the MAME Project. I did a quick search and could not find anything about that game in MAME. Would have been nice, if there were a CHD Image from the HDD. Then you could have simply replaced it.
Anyway, I'm sure you'll get it to work completely soon :)
Hf & gl!

I got a contact in USA who will help me. I've got the original CD Set for BeachHead 2002.
So one game can be retored.
But I wanna make a Mame solution also. Using a dual-boot system.
So I will get the perfect System. Now I'm looking for the pefect housing aka "Cab" ...
I think this winter will not be boring !

There is not enough space for Joysticks, Buttons and what ever you need ..
The original one has NOTHING ! ..
There are only 4 Buttons at the helmet .. The complete cab will be used with the helmet ..

I have to agree whit ully. the cabinet looks realy cool! and there are enof generic cabinets that are clean and nice and mameminga generic cab is the best thing there is. It gifs you a sollid base a jamma loop good fitting monitor and are dearty cheap. only reson for maming this would be is your are completely out of space and still then i would say make a arcade controller and just play on your tv ore pc.

I don't know if it's rare ...
The problem is :
I wanna have this game in my living room ..
But this ugly thing will not fit .. so I keep the original cab and take a "new" one ..
The original PC and the "arm" with the helmet will be "transplantated" on the other cab.
I Install a "Boot-Manager" so I can boot the original game on the original PC or I can boot a Mame-System.
Try to imagine ...
I wanna bring THIS :


in the style of THIS :



So something between them ..

And the original Cab will be saved and I bring it to original state ...
So that the machine can always brought back to original condition ..

My basement is full..
Now I put machines in my apartment .. but I run out of space ..
What is to do ??
Mame something !
