Steve, did you ever get the m80's for that awesome theater room?


I'm on day 11 of the wait... I ordered them (as well as the VP150 and two EP500's) from the factory outlet, so I'm hoping I get them by the weekend after this one (Next friday would be day 19).

It's tough not even getting a status update after almost 2 weeks!

you may be suprised, most of the time they will arrive much earlier than the dates shown in the FO schedule.

my flight takes off from Des Moines in a couple of hours, will check back later...

Sirquack,

One more thing. Tomorrow, March 29th, is the US Coin Operated Game Auction at the Indy State Fairgrounds. They will supposedly have machines just coming off use in the field that they want to get rid of cheaply. Usually, you have to haul things out yourself though.

I'll probably stop by to see if there's anything to add to the basement.

Since you brought up arcade machines... I have 5 classics I've tried unsuccessfully to give away. Even tried on this forum a couple times. I have Gravitar, wizard-o-wor,gyruss,Kangaroo,and Battlezone. If you (or anyone) wants em, they're yours. I need the space.

Well, thanks for the info Steve, not sure I could fit that with my carry on bag. \:\) Would be cool, I used to love hanging out in the arcades in the 80's....

Duckman, I think I remember when you were talking about these once. I can't remember, do they need work or are they in good condition? Not my favorite titles, but not bad though.. \:\)

They all need work of some kind. The wizard-o-wor,gyruss,and kangaroo need monitor kits (or a replacement chassis), or a new monitor. Figure $5 for a cap kit to $100-200 for a complete monitor. I found a site with replacement chassis for like $65.
Ok- I went and found the place here I never dealt with them, just found them.
It's an easy swap, I could do it if someone wanted.
The gravaitar is different breed of cat. It's a color vector monitor (read obsolete) the monitor just quit while running. They may have new technolgy now to replace a vector monitor, I havn't paid attention in some time. It is a gorgeous cabinet, way cool looking, I'd be tempted to put a pc running mame in it.
The battlezone runs fine till it warms up, then starts resetting itself. This is another nice looking cab.
I can take some pics... ;\)

That is a very generous offer duckman. I bought a MAME cabinet from a local dealer here last year (Dream Authentics). If I didn't have that already I would have jumped on that offer!

I'm going to the auction today to look for a Back to the Future pinball machine, and an electronic dart machine.

If anyone feels like travelling around the world to build an arcade machine I have a very high quality vector monitor free to good home. It worked the last time I used it, which was several years ago. We bought it perhaps (ohmigod !) 30 years ago for use in a video effects studio -- quantized a black and white video input, used the quantizer output to supply a Z component. Next step was to generate X and Y scan sawtooth voltages and feed those plus the Z into an analog transformation matrix then use the outpot of that to drive the vector monitor.

The result was video with an artificial depth component, spun in 3 dimensions on the screen, with sufficiently high quality that we could capture it with another video camera and use the result in commercials etc...

Toss in some video feedback and it was better than most of the drugs available at the time ;\)

Anyways, the monitor weighs about 125 pounds and is currently at my parents house (I think we were using it to give my father a bigger screen for his Macintosh). I'm sure my mother is sick of dusting it.

Just got back from the auction. It was pretty cool, I had never been to a "real" auction before and it was very exciting. No "Back to the Future Pinball" there, but they did have 3 dart machines. They were being auctioned off later on, and I didn't feel like hanging around that long.

I did pick up a Merit Megatouch XL5000 for $275. It's one of those touch screen games you see in bars. Cool thing is when I won the auction, they threw me the keys! When I got home, there was $2 in the bill acceptor too!

Fun day!
