So, I've been waiting for something worthy of posting in here, and I think I finally found it...




Aaaand, if you look closely enough, you'll see a Centipede cab behind it... Friday was a good day. thumb.gif

The big issues are the artwork on the bottom (you can see the bottom being rubbed badly), the marquee (out of pic) and CPO that have the black area chipped away and cig burns on the control panel. Other than that, it is completely original, even the original manuals (1st edition) came with it. As far as the Centipede cab that is barely shown, she needs a lot more work. Has no control panel, CRT, back door, PCB but does have the original power supply, sideart, and marquee.

It'll be worth the work. We need to preserve these things for future generations.

You might know about this already, but, here is a big selection of arcade machine repair logs, in various degrees of detail. They get into stuff like reflashing EEPROMs, repairing ripped traces on boards and so on. If you haven't seen it, it might be up your alley and maybe you'll even learn something from it. (I can't solder and don't have any arcade cabs anyway; a lot of this stuff is too technical for me.)

You should also consider joining our club if you have any classic consoles. smile.gif

I totally agree that we need to preserve these old arcade cabinets. They were always the standard to which consoles tried to meet. Just look at the Atari 2600's lineup of games, they were dumbed down versions of the arcade versions. Even Nintendo had their arcade games released on the Atari before they went with their own consoles.

It already looks like the Millipede may need a bit of work done on the board. The game runs but there appear to be random lines of mushrooms that should not be in the corresponding levels to which I find them. I appreciate the link! I have it bookmarked.

As far as consoles, I have an SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, Gamecube, and PS2 (plus, some later ones). Unfortunately, when my family moved out of the family house in which I grew up, they threw out an Atari 2600 (wood grain with box), 3 - NES consoles (2 working, and 1 with box), Virtual Boy (with box), 3 - GameBoys (2 originals, one purple Color), Sega Gamegear (blue), and even a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A with tons of tapes with hand typed games. Mind you, I was not home for this travesty or I would have saved those poor, sweet souls from their dumpster demise. It still saddens me to this day. sad-smiley-002.gif

Wow, people really that clueless of what old tech is worth? Back in my younger days, we had an NES with a ton of games, (this was a year after PS1 was out) and my parents sold that NES with all those games, game genie and book, etc, for like $10 to a family friend... A lot worth $200 these days, for TEN DOLLARS! Breaks my heart just remembering the day I watched it go... I mean, I had the PS1 and the NES games were BORING since I had played them so much, but still... /tear

Good to see some new faces around here thumb.gif

Care to share what you paid for the Millipede / Centipede cabs there, Wolfsbora? Understandable if you don't though redface.gif Are you planning to keep them, or refurb and flip?

I didn't realize this until recently but it seems to have been common for competitors to release their games for rival computer systems e.g. Nintendo released some arcade ports to rival consoles like the atari 7800 years after the NES had been released. And actually Atari (as "Tengen") released games for NES (ports of Sega games like After Burner). I guess it's like today with Microsoft competing with Google yet releasing their best mobile software of Android and iOS and google releasing things on iOS.

Also, I'm still wishing I had all those SNES games from 25 years ago. Some of them are worth $200+ now. Hell, even SMW is like $30...

I'm not gonna tell you how much that Virtual Boy with box would be worth now.

I think the blue Game Gear is worth more than a normal Game Gear too.

Would you like me to add you to the club? You didn't say either way.
