Hi,

Just finished


http://www.zzzaccaria.com/QuasarRestorationMC.htm

There are links to scans of the artwork and a dump of the new set of ROMS from this machine, likely an early run of the game, also on the page,

Thanks,
Paul.

Love these repair stories. Thanks Paul for your dedication in both the resto and the write up. These stories inspire me to do some resto work myself 👍

I scanned through the log - as usual it was quite thorough.  I may have missed it, what is the story with the sideart?  This isn't typically the artwork on Quasar cabs, it looks like the Space Pirate artwork, but faded. 

Is there an early version of Quasar, or is there some other significance?

The black light I've only ever seen on Quasar. It's not on Phoenix or Scramble but I haven't seen enough of the vector games to notice if they have it.

I've seen at least one other Quasar with this side art. As you noticed, the colour scheme is slightly different from the vector games and Moon Crest IIRC.

I never opened my space fortress (in the restoration queue); I'll have a look if it has or not the black light

I have the blacklight in the Quasar, the Scramble and the Phoenix cab.
not in Super Cobra and Vanguard.

Cool! You can get new bulbs on eBay Smiley My Scramble doesn't have one.
