Pinge and me did some work in the storehouse this weekend.


Some stuff that's going away to a happy buyer


Pinge did some cleanup & reorganizing since the storehouse looked like a mess. In the meantime I did some work with the monitors to my Pacman & Donkey Kong Jr (from Barry)

I had cleaned the monitors with a garden hose & recapped the chassis. Success, both worked fine!


Some nice burns in Pacman


Everything recapped & cleaned in Donkey Kong Jr. It looks great! Only need to make a black monitor bezel & this baby is finished

Suddenly I heard a "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!" followed by a big bang. This is what I saw:


When moving the Exidy Circus cab, the back board (that Pinge was holding) came loose and the whole cab fell forward with a bang. Pinge was not happy.


Luckily the result of this faux pas was "only" some wood damage. The monitor was ok & the front glass (with the special "bulged" letters) survived without a scratch.

A fucking shame on a cabinet in beautiful condition... I will burn in hell for it...

I have worked on bits and pieces but have been bad on the documenation... I have to do it better from now on...
On friday we will go on a roadtrip so expect a thread about that in the near future..

Im sorry Andreas but it is not the warehouse this trip, but I have not forgotten about it thats for sure.

Hopefully we have an opportunity to go there in December but it all depends on other commitments, we are going that direction then but the timeframe is uncertain.

Np pinge, I just thought this IS the warehouse run again  oppps Smiley
And im not in a hurry, have too many other things to do ( and this weekend is budapest arcade time  Grin ).

And btw beside my work at the house, I could not resist grabbing this little gem:



The goal was to get that simpson euro version ( crt not working but playing blind ). Its from an collector here in austria. He told me that he already sold 20 cabs, but still have 60 remaining ones. Sadly, they were not at the pickup place and he does not remember the titles ( he had a few TAB universal cabs and photo touch too ).

When he offered me trog, I wasnt very interested, because the pcb is missing too. So I told him a price what I would be willing to pay and he said some numbers. But they were still too high for me and when I thought about trog ( me and him was a bit in a hurry ), he lowered the price and yeah, you see the result in the picture.

I already got an offer for the pcb from MikeMCbike, so lets put the missing parts together and see if it works.

Replaced the rubber rings on my Locomotion pinball, I thought it will be a  piece of cake, but it was a hell of a job to remove and put back all those plastics and other components. Shocked

Very nice, I have never hard of that Pin.. any fun?

I have been working on bits and pieces on my projects, put some time and effort in on my spare DK Jr cabinet this week, I have plans for it and parts are on the way so It would be nice to have it as ready as possible...
Things were falling apart wood wise sp I had to disassemble the whole front and make it sturdier with a few brackets and some new holes.

I have also removed the monitor which I cant get my head around at the moment... maybe have to redo the capkit and do a potkit on the remoteboard and neckboard. Hopefully I get another chassis to try aswell.

Is that your kitchen?  Grin

Today at about 12:30



Since Arcadiafest in hungary, I felt in love with Sternīs Berzerk. So it already was on my "must have" list and a few weeks later, I found one in germany in not so bad condition.
The seller had many cabs - sadly as you already know, im out of space. Ok one more was possible, but thats it, really, im serious  Grin

I wasnt the only one who was curious, my kitty Mimi was inspecting the cab too:




I was never a huge fan of space invaders ( even if it looks great with that fluorescent colors ), maybe because in my teenage, I saw later games like Galaga & the 80īs.
On an arcade event at Luigi and Kirk, I played the first time Asteroids in an cab and man I liked it. So in the 80īs, there were this naughty italian company called Sidam which made 1:1 copies of Atari games. Off course they called it Asterock and not Asteroids, smart italians  Cheesy.



I really like the style of the Asterock cabinet and I also found a little backstory about sidam. The following link is already translated to german, but just switch to your prefered language at the top.

https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=de&js=y&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.retrocampus.com%2F2015%2F12%2F31%2Fsidam-videogiochi-a-torino%2F&edit-text=&act=url

Berzerk sadly has a modified control panel, that extra button. They made it because they put "Rastan Saga" into the cab and scratched the whole artwork off the cp. So my plans are to close that extra hole and put an repro artwork onto the cp. I read that some US-guys made the correct repro cp, but to be honest, im more afraid that someone scratches it off with his wristband from his watch.
The Marquee looks like overpainted and on a tiny spot, you can see some graphics shine through.

Btw I have too many projects  Grin
