    Buy Asteroids PCB and then get the (Braze) Multigame kit
    So you can play
    Asteroids Delux, Asteroids, and Lunar Lander

    Asteroids Multigame - Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Lunar Lander



    John installed one for me, and works a treat

        Ok guys before I start I do want to get this cabinet back to original some day so dont banish me for MAMEing a classic cab!!
        But as you know original parts for this aren't available at Bunnings so i wanted to get it out of the corner collecting dust and see it get used
        So I put in a 19" LCD running AAE emulator which gives it a great 3D look hopefully similar to the original
        I also had some logitech speakers with sub which gives a really good deep bass sound especially when you blast the rocks
        Got the marquee light going to show off the original 40yr old marquee which looks awesome and a repro bezel from Noodleshirt
        To finish off I will light up the coin slots and also the LED cone start buttons which at the moment are wired to credit and start
        With regard to the LED cone buttons I do need help with what voltage these are and the best way to power them , I did read somewhere that they need to be around 2-3v ??
        Any info or advice on this would be appreciated

          Wow great cab and nice work!
          My Asteroids I found gutted so I have AAE’d it too with a 19 inch PC CRT. Looks great.

          I am about to do the same thing with the lighted cone buttons.
          There’s a few options for you but this is the easiest I have found. Find a Logitech K120 USB keyboard. Simply remove the controller board from inside. Remove the old keyboard LED’s and solder wires to your Atari cone buttons.The k120 board puts out the perfect voltage for the cone buttons without resistors etc
          I have not wired mine up yet so check voltage first but it should be all good. I found a video on YouTube named hacking a Logitech k120 or the like.
          Other options include little PCB’s that seem impossible to find like the iPac board for LED’s, modifying other USB keyboards and other long discontinued LED boards for use with MAME.

            The buttons use a 5 volt LED mate. Just be careful they are easy to kill if you wire them up wrong.
