Ah, so you really got it? You told me yesterday that you have a manual for me.....and gave me a cardboard roll with Dirk's Joust CPO inside. So I thought you were wrong. I should have asked once more for it Wink

Guys, I have someone's DK bezel here. It was smuggled in the truck.
If it's not from any of you, I suggest it goes to Robinholland for his new Donkey Kong cabinet.
Of which I am totally jealous. My DK particle disaster cabinet looks like shit compared to yours Smiley

Also have Amidar schematics in a brown envelop.
I think it's for Thwocker since he had the Amidar cabinet.
I can send it by post, no problem.

If someone finds my
- Nintendo buttons (5 pieces)
- Mario Bros pcb (working condition)
- DK marquee
please let me know, 3 out of 4 parcels got "lost" after being arrived at COW (track and trace status). That would be a record I think.

Or do any of you have a Mario Bros board for sale? Smiley

Puuh, what a great day... First i will say many thanks to Thomas for making it possible! And nice to meet the other guys from the community!!!

As anybody knows i had 4 cabs to pick it up in bremen, but the weather in the morning was very dangerous to drive (especially with a huge trailer), because there were a lot of snow and black ice on the streets in my area. so i must leave my home w/o a trailer and have space only for 1 cab in my car... but no prob for me, i will go then to berlin to pick up the 3 cabs leftover (space duel, nintendo vs project, assault).




Second:
Oh great, there are still about 20 cabs left over in the storage. Darn. Oh well. Happy you guys are happy!  pacman pacman pacman
Well, if you had mentioned yesterday that you wanted them all gone, I would have loved to take that versus Nintendo (project) off your hands Smiley
sorry joeks, this nintendo vs cab is mine and i pick it up later from storage in berlin...

I had a DK bezel in the container, but I got a message from Love he had it. I bought it from a guy located in Sanford, Florida, United States. Bought it off ebay, I ask the guy to put anunaki on it, not sure if he did.

Well, if Love already has your bezel, than this should be someone elses I guess?

What I don't understand, there was NO address label on the package and on the one parcel I did get (out of four) there was no label whatsoever too.
Why would anybody rip them off? No wonder things get lost.
I told sellers from whom I bought to mark it clearly, "Coinopwarehouse ATTN. Barry Buise for Thomas' container".
And they all did arrive at Lloyd if I check the track and trace status.

Gents, please relax. I asked Lloyd to remove stickers to avoid trouble with customs in case they open the container. Didnt know they would put stuff in cabs though. And I had no time to check really.

Tracking parts is kind of tricky. Especially with a partner like COW. Cabs are easy as you can just identify them by looking at them. Parts are in boxes, wrapped up etc.

That said, lets sort this out. I will contact you guys via PM.

Yeah I think its yours.

Now that there are parcels popping up in cabs all over europe I might need to chek the 20 that are left in the storage unit very thoroughly. Bad news is I will be there in 10 days again, not earlier.

Besides putting large boxes into cabs (I hope it didn't break something underneath) they broke the lock of the back cover. When I pulled it open in Trier the lock along with some piece of the wood around it simply broke and fell down, I think two guys from Tyrem's team stood nearby and saw it....and no, I'm not THAT strong Wink  The key was in the coin box and the coin door was open.

No offense to anyone here but we should make clear they won't do such things again in the future Smiley

Yes, CoW could have been a bit more cautious with some things. For instance I thought that the key on my Dr. Mario coindoor was lost, so this morning I was ready to drill out the lock. But just before driving the drill into the lock I saw some metal inside the lock. Yes, it was the beard of the key, broken off appearantly. I took a screwdriver, jammed it in the lock and turned the lock. Voila, the coindoor opened.  Smiley

Unfortunately inside there was no key present for the backdoor.  Sad

Sirs, I've got a problem I wanted to discuss with you.

My Journey came from a private seller. Thomas has sent me pictures. Therre was also one from the inside.



The picture is blurry but you can see the machine is complete.

The cab then was picked up by TNT Amusement (you know, the guys that throw cabs and pinballs from their roof) for $250. It was waiting there to be picked up by the COW-team.

To be sure what artwork I will need to restore the cab I asked for some pictures. Todd from TNT has sent pictures to Thomas who forwarded them to me. Here's also one from the inside.



If you'll take a closer look at the PCB-set you can see that the bracket has been removed but the PCB-set is still the same...nice and clean.

In Trier I already recognized that the PCBs are just hanging lose inside but didn't care that much. Today I tested the cab, didn't work. Not even the scrambled screen from the pictures of the private seller. I opened the cab and pulled out the PCB-set. The bracket was laying inside on the floor. I took it home to compare it with pics from the internet.

Here's the PCB-set that was inside:



Little different to the nice and clean set on Todd's picture, eh?  Evil

Here's how a Journey-PCB-set should look like. From quarterarcade.com




I'm sure that Todd replaced the original PCBs with some dirty crap. I disassembled the set and found stickers on the eproms that say TIGER'...might be Two Tigers.

Of course I will confront Todd with these pictures. Of course he will say he didn't change the PCB-set  Sad 

Any hint how to get this moron at his balls?? He just turned out to be the asshole he is in his videos Angry
