Honestly.. it's been a few years since I played, but I'm sure they're not bad scores!

I just made sure I was top on all the challenges!  Cheesy

I've got few months ago a Stun Runner board from US. At the time, because I hadn't the cabinet at home, and because I didn't know if the game was working or not, I thought I was a good idea to buy a working Stun Runner board.

Here it is  arrow



It's supposed to be 'Tested & Working'... yes yes... it's even written on it  Tongue  arrow



OK, so let's swap the current board, working but with some sounds issues, with this board... on location  arrow



Let's plug the game... Yes  Smiley That board is working ... but ... still the same sound problems  Huh?

Well, let's check inside the cockpit... OK ... what's this small additional board ?  arrow



OK... understood! THIS is the sound board!

Now, I know I have two working Stun Runner main boards, and I know the problem is located on that small card!

But... what could be wrong on it... it looks very clean... the condos 'looks' fine ... maybe a ram problem on it ?
There's no error in the test mode of the game... strange... any idea maybe?  confused

I posted it on the KLOV forum Bruno, lot's of knowledge overthere !

I'm sure it can be fixed. What exactly are the sound issues ?

Apparently, the sound boards often went bad on STUN runner:

It's time to clean up the screen, the bezel... and this  arrow



Maybe I should keep the insect, put in in amber, and make a nice keyring...like this  arrow



Too bad I didn't think about it previously  oppps ...but next time, I'll  Cheesy

Ok, the monitor + bezel are cleaned  arrow



Hey... a S.T.U.N. RUNNER is supposed to have a nice marquee, isn't it?

Here it is...



It needs to be cleaned too ...



Done... and 'on location' ... *bonus* : the original neon is still working  Grin  arrow

Let's continue the cleaning.

Because that game operated in a theme park for small kids, a lot of sand everywhere Lips Sealed  arrow



...well... not only for small kids... because of these cigarette burns  confused  arrow



...very ... very ... very old bubblegums ...



Arghhh... Cannot remove it  Undecided I've tried to pull it off with a screwdriver, but it won't go  Undecided Any advice for removing it ?  oppps



OK, let's remove the sand :



For the rest, I'm using a 'cockpit cleaner for car'... because it's mostly plastic parts here  Cool Except the cigarette burns, it looks better now  arrow



Funny, see the speaker location on this game :



I think it looks nice with the Turbo Out Run cockpit on its side...



...because of the same RED plastic color  Cool



Let's take a ride now...



Monitor is in very good condition, very nice, clean & clear picture :





Arghhh !!!! Too late for the T-shirt challenge  Tongue Grin  arrow

There is a product called Goo Gone, I use it to dissolve gum that kids place on the theatre seats.

Maybe it's available in your area?   www.googone.com

It works great!  easy to use!  Wink

Retro Gamer has to be one of the best gaming magazines out there Grin. The writers really know their stuff, they interact with their readers on the RG forum and you can always count on professional reviews and interviews.
...and they love SEGA too Tongue Grin
