Follow up of this topic, you may have noticed that my gamecorner has a bit of a empty space in the middle.
While showing the pictures to Anunaki, he mentioned he has a zacc and is getting rid of some games.
He offered me the zacc and after making an appointment with him its time to do something about that empty spot in the middle.  Cool

Since i work close to the place where Anunaki lives, we made a deal for the pickup after work.




After dragging the cabinet from Anunaki's game attic its time for him to say goodbye to his zaccaria Mr. Do!  Cheesy




I don't have my lease car anymore since i switched jobs, so my little car needs to do the job.
Let's transport it in DLF style, (which is do whatever it takes to get the cabinet home). Grin




Avoiding the highways with that big thing hanging out of my rear end, i have to take a ferry.




Fortunately, you can almost jump across so it does not take long to reach the other side.




Breda, thats my exit.  Roll Eyes




There was a little rain during my trip back, but the backdoor served well as a roof.  Space Ace




Lets see what we got.  Roll Eyes




Starsplash cabinet.  Kiss




Starsplash controlpanel.




Extra starsplash CPO's.  Roll Eyes




Starsplash bezel and a Mr. Do! Marquee.




To make the starsplash cabinet complete, Anunaki gave me a glass Starsplash Marquee as a bonus.  Space Ace




Coindoor, heavily protected by a huge operator installed metal bar.
Complete though with 3 slots labeled for german marks.




3 coinmechs also present.




Coinbox is also present.




Let's go to the back of the machine.
Serial tag also there, damaged, but its there.




Original backdoor keys present, i love those details.  Kiss




Backdoor is intact.




Wires are a mess, but that was already told me, and i just have to check it, its all there as far as i can see.




Original Universal Mr. DO! circuitboard.




Original powersupply with industrial "refrigurator" fan.  Cheesy




Transformer assy, intact.




I believe its a Kortek monitor in there, not a Hantarex MTC900.




Connected the power to see what we got, lights go on and monitor has picture.  Space Ace




It has a graphic issue, but Anunaki told me when he wiggled the connectors it went away.




I tried it, but i keep getting the graphical issues.  Undecided




Looks like there is alot of red that should not be there, i'll connect it one day to another monitor and see if its a board issue or connector issue.




After sliding it into its slot, the row is complete.  Cool




Nice row if you ask me, if you look close, you can still see the sideart of the cabs.




And after some fiddling around with the other zacc, i got picture on that cabinet also.  Cool




For now the row is complete, and i will see when i got time to work on them again, but now its play time !

Nice! Is the Mr. Do! a real back-in-the-day edition or a modern repro?

dont know paul, i see it has a marquee, a instruction decal behind the bezel, and a original pcb.
But looking at the edge connector, it does not look factory, or the guy working there was having a bad day  Cheesy

the Marquee is a repro from DLF member "joeks"

The pcb was working with some jiggling before, but maybe it just needs a new adaptor
