Weeejooooo, I found another great game of my youth: Rush n Attack (although I played it as Green Beret)..... and iI'm about to buy it.

Just looked around on the internet if there was some kind of dedicated cab of it, I found this



This looks pretty awesome 8), hopefully I can found a similar cab some day, cause I definitely want to get myself this cab.......

Well, I found some pics of the original cab, I might still want to dedicate a cab to this one. I just bought the PCB, now I need to get me an Konami adapter. I think I'll order it together with the stuff I need for my MK cab. It's too bad arcadeshop.de doesn't have the red T-molding I need, but I can order it in Holland.

I also need a SEGA system 16 adapter to test my Shinobi board and a Alevator Action adapter, so I can test the board. I will make these myself, I need the practice anyway.

For my test setup I got myself:

- A supergun
- A PSU
- A a LED volt display
- Multimeter

I'm looking for a old monitor with Scart, they come around every now and then on Marktplaats.

The scary thing is I never soldered a thing in my life before, so I need to start practicing on the adapters.

When I get these things straight, I'gonna hook up with a guy who says he can explain to me how the boards and monitors work. I've got great affinity with beta material, but my knowlegde of the material sucks at the moment.

When I see the projects you guys here are doing, i can only hope to be able to do so one day.

Got me another cab. Bought it from member Reboot from here. It will be my learning project.

It's a small universal cab, with 2 (switching?) 18 pin connections inside (could it be a Tehkan pinout, maybe make it a Bomb Jack cab 8) 8))





Only thing I know is it's nont working and the sides look OK. Some wood needs to be replaced, and also new glass is needed. Those are minor things that can easily be done.
 
I have to replace the locks, because I don't have the keys ;D And I found a mtching bezel underneath theone in the picture

The Marquee is a funny looking Crazy Kong I never seen before, maybe anyone here recognizes it?



1st thing I'm going to do is checking out the PSU and figuring out the wiring to see if it's indeed a Tehkan pinout.

I took the wiring inside of the cab apart hoping to find some klind of reference.

Only thing I found was this:



So it's a "Model Racing" kind of Cab. Now I have to find out the pinout of the connectors and I'm going to test the PSU. Found some loose solder on the connectors that need to be fixed.

Etienne: Is this some kind of special rare Marquee?

It it the exact cab indeed  :) same side art, same bezel, same marquee.

prettu cool documentary btw Tx 8)

If you want the marquee, you either pick it up or I can send it to you. In case of sending it, I have to check what it will cost to wrap it up and send it. It a pretty large plexiglass thing)

Let me know


@ Slowcade: Tx, I'm very happy with it myself
