Yup, I think that would be what I would do....artwork Qubes, multi-kit to also be able to play the original (and more).
That is, I am assuming Qubes runs on the same hardware as Q*bert....

LOL !! First I was "afraid" you'd post another "knocker" Tongue

But seriously, it's not on that picture. It's mounted to the side of the coin-box area AFAIK.

The black round thing is a fuse holder, you often see those in pinballs too, no wonder with Gottlieb.

Inspectet the cab some more, and canīt find the knocker?Huh?Huh? - did QQ come with a knocker??, canīt see why it shouldent, coz itīs just a factory converted Q*bert...

Anyway, found something that scares me a bit... look in the res circle:


Whatīs underneath there?, i scraped some of it off and it felt like the same stuff that comes from an old battery...


Oh - this is what the counter sais; no wonder the monitor looked new:

I have no idea if Cubes used a knocker. That circled part looks like a NOVRAM module and very likely indeed contains a battery. Check the schematics and/or manual to see what it is used for and remove/replace it ASAP.

It could also be sticker residu judging from that plc though...?

I think also its sticker residue, since there is no acid on the board..

but better check, it could indeed have a battery inside, and then i agree with andre, replace ASAP!
