    A mate in the US has been helping me tweak the PCB, he's just had the boards arrive from the latest revision and they look awesome.







    He's currently assembling the board and if there's no errors I'll put an order through with JLCPCB.
    If anyone wants a PCB let me know via PM.

    I finally managed to find an original PCB, turns out Kev from kfe.com.au had one but it looks like it has the Super Pong mod done (four directional analogue joysticks).
    I'll document the mods before returning it back to original.

    Feel like getting one just because I like this project so much and the boards look so good.

    Board tested and working but still a few tweaks to pad sizes etc, I'll put an order through for 5 when he's done the tweaks and check a few other things now I have an original board to compare to.

    The original Pong PCB has been stripped of mods, all ICs that had their pins clipped for mods have been replaced with working vintage TTL chips and there was a number of other chips that were faulty and had to be replace, all up 21 chips and 40+ trace repairs.







    PCB is now fully working...
