Figured I better keep track of this project:

Picked this monster up today off another member, thanks 4wasp4.

No pics just yet, but some notes:

1 - top CRT has no yoke, also MAY have signs of burning from the original so I hold the chassis sus at this stage
2 - main CRT has bad impurity/alignment on the LHS and degaussing does not help. A quick peek at the back and it's an orion tube with an unlabelled chassis. Looks like the yoke either is not original or has been fiddled with...
3 - Only boots occasionally. Not sure on this yet, will need to have a look at the power supply.
4 - Golf cart does not work.

Here are the carts it came with:

1 - Mike Tyson's Punch Out - with an onboard CR2032 battery which will be replaced ASAP
2 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
3 - Dr Mario
4 - Rad Racer
5 - Pro Wrestling
6 - Gauntlet
7 - Double Dragon
8 - Tennis
9 - Golf
10 - Super Mario Brothers

and an additional board "Kung Fu" unpopulated.

A quick question - did these come with eproms or mask-roms originally? All of these are eproms, but the security chip is still present..

Cheers
Jacob

Now with some pics:

These guys are not hugely common, so I thought I'd drop some pics here for members to have a squiz at. Gotta get to the cab to take some will do that soon.

Here is the main board, with 10 sockets for the carts:

Here is a close-up of a good idea: a 1F super-cap instead of a battery. Still going strong, and no leaks

Top of the PCB: with the "other than jamma" connector for the 2nd monitor

Near the "almost Jamma" connector, with RGB pots:

Some sample carts: short and full lengths, different eprom configs, and one with a backup battery: (top to bottom: Gauntlet, Double Dragon, Pro Wrestling, Mike Tyson's Punch Out and Super Mario Brothers)

Cool looking cab. The PCB's look nice and clean. The game line up sounds good to.

Is that a ploy with the wife "I hung out the washing hun".....

heheh yeah - it's the only sheltered spot that was suitable. Problem is in rainy weather the washing gets in the way :laugh:

It's moving soon, just have to wait for the Mrs to be away for a few hours;)

I just bought one of these and need to do a couple of the things to it.
I was hoping u could tell me/show me what mech was in it?.
Mine is missing the bottom of my Control panel overlay see pic.
So hoping u could take a photo of that part of the cpo so I can get a reprint, i can just notice it says playchoice on the bottom of one of ur photos, is the lettering the exact the same size as the marquee as I have the marquee to copy from.
Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated
