  1. Via an AA member here @Gemini2544 this video was found of the only Australian Billy Bobs @ Knox City in 1991. Pretty much the only known video of the place in existence. Was awesome to see, i was lucky enough to be a local back then and it was the first arcade i ever went to, so considering i've ended up running 1UP Arcade & y own Pinball business, to be able to have the chance to see the place again via this video is kinda special for me - very much where it all began for me. Was one hell of an experience as a kid & probably why i love the Beatles so much. If anyone has any other info on the place, what happened to the big ass animatronics - i'd love to know. If anyone by the off chance has any of the old merch they have, especially the ol tokens with Billy Bobs face on them - i would LOVE to get one or even a few to put on display at 1UP Arcade as a bit of a homage to the place.
  2. Yep 1UP Arcade does., We currently have it in a VS candy Cab and its fucking glorious. We just had a 3rd Strike competition 2 weeks back on Saturday with over 20 fighters battling it out over 5 hours. Was an awesome day. There will be more 3rd Strikes coming up in 2023.... watch this space Some pics from our Monthy Fight Club - SF 3rd Strike Edition. Is the First Saturday of every month. Entry to the event is free along with your standard all-day Freeplay Arcade pass. Would be great to see more AAers at the arcade
  3. howdy. I've been a pinball guy previously, but have found myself balls deep in arcades as I started working at 1UP Arcade. I've found it really difficult finding a solid contact list of repairer's that can take on PCB repair work, especially for 80's, 90's era games, which we have a really really big amount of. Since kicking back up from Covid, we have gotten about 220 machines running on the floor atm, but we have some real crackers we can't get out. We try to handle some minor board repairs inhouse, which we have had some nice wins with recently, but ultimately we don't have anyone competent enough to attempt a complex repair, especially when involving, more often than not, a really a really rare PCB. We use JoMac where we can & he has been endlessly helpful, despite being a very busy guy. Are there still people around who take on paid PCB repair work?
  4. i am a god. basically the black AC to the fluoro, which then fed back down to the power brick within the same loom was the issue, ie a fault in the fluoro. I just bypassed the fluoro by joining the two adjoining wires & presto! game is back. obviously no fluoro but it was not being utilised. I will look for a new fluoro/led alternative to replace it which is essentially 'plug n play' directly to the AC via the psu. if anyone has a solution there already then please let me know. thanks @wiredoug & @poidapoidafor directions
  5. more updates, following the Black/White AC wires & i think I may have found the culprit. while the white AC wire from the Line Filter goes directly to the plug going into the Power Brick, the black one actually goes to the top of the headbox & provides power to the fluoro, before, i assume, it does a U-turn & comes back down via a black/white wire which then goes into the ac plug, so assume its a fault in the fluoro or the switch which lives inside its casing
  6. updated, tested the male plugs by slipping in the prongs via the anus & getting a slight drop to 105v, so its dropping 90% somewhere between the 2 harness points before the brick.
  7. cheers Doug, was a little weary testing AC without the the knowledge, but checked it at both black/white Ac points before & after the line filter & getting 110v at both ends. it then goes into a harness plug which also testing at 110v, which i have followed down to a 2 wire AC plug which goes into the power brick. when I test that plug I am seeing a drop to 15v. is it safe to assume a compromised wire or an issue at the previous mentioned harness plug, on the 'makes pinned side?
  8. g'day, had a US import Phoenix which was working via a step down. it went off recently & appeared that the psu had failed. replaced it & still no love. tested the AC points on the psu & appears to have no AC readings. replaced the step down to a new one & same issue so have eliminated that. the AC wiring goes to a Line Filter. is it likely a failure there, or possibly the AC cord. still new to arcade repairs so weary of messing about with AC
  9. awesome, is there a website where we can see a full list of official BPAC ran events for 2022?
  10. Gday anyone have 2 spare chamma adapters i can buy off them, or a distributor i can get locally, so i can hook up 6 button action to a pandora dx 3000. Thx in advance
  11. Added info - I just tested it without the SD card installed and i got a blank black screen being projected. The RPi3b+ will hold a solid red LED. With the SD Card reinstalled, the screen is projecting the yellow Bolt in the top left corner again, with the red LED flashing 4 slow, 4fast (8) - then cycling the same pattern again. Its my first attempt at using a RPI so not really sure where to go from here.
