    Another 50 hours on it this long weekend...
    While I was staring the space where I'll finally house the game, I saw the big sheet of foam on the wall and it reminded me of a projector screen.
    The cogs got turning and I mounted a Data Projector I had sitting around doing nothing and here's the result.
    I'm thinking I can take the RGBSync signal from the board and run it though a adapter to VGA and have the game run on the wall through the projector as well.

    When I was warming up the projector I had it sitting on the seat of the cab and it threw a wraparound image against the inside of the cab, pretty cool...

    I've separated the pieces and laid the plywood section that the PCB's go in over a table frame that I can move around if needed.

    I removed the black moving section on top as there's nothing needed on it to test the motion, it'll get stripped back and repainted before going back on.

    The wiring is now all laid out so there is easy access to all connectors, motors and switches.
    One of the biggest challenges I faced when testing was not being able to quickly move around the cab to take voltage, continuity and logic measurements etc.

    I also added 250W of fluorescent lighting overhead so I could see what I'm doing.

        Ow I love the projector idea. Now that is a car game. Movement, full sized picture , surround sound and proper controls and your set I think. Congratulations on sticking with this project and seeing it though. Well done mate.

          A big thank you to the person who provided me with the manual for the Top Speed DX 20".
          It's been scanned and backed up to multiple locations.
          I need to reduce the size before uploading it to KLOV, link below.
          The schematics for the motion are all there.

            I'll go through and repair the image links on all posts before deleting my Photobucket account.

              I'm taking another look at the Drive Logic PCB for the motion control and want to read the three PAL16L8's to make sure they're not faulty.



              I have no experience here but after a quick Google search I read that the TL-866II Plus programmer can read these as an Atmel 16V8.

              https://www.eevblog.com/forum/microc...16r4-gal16v8b/

              Can anyone confirm this and which device should I cheese i.e 16V8B, 16V8BL 16V8BLQ etc or does it not matter?

                You may be interested in at least one Chase HQ board if not two I have here?. There is also an SCI board here I think...SCI was the upgrade of Chase HQ.

                  Definitely, all the boards I have here have ram and other issues I need to sort out.
                  Shoot me a PM with prices when you get time.
                  It's near impossible to find the motor driver PCB's.
                  I'll be spending the rest of the evening socketing the ram on the boards I have here so I can swap them out and test them.
