JOUST!
« on: November 23, 2015, 01:55:28 am »
Picked up this little beauty tonight on a last second, late night, arcade run a couple hours north of Calgary.  She's gonna get the full restore treatment with a JROK.

Has a bootleg Bobble Bobble inside, and needs a little love. But i got it for a fair price and spun the PCB off to my buddy.

Nice score!

What is the purpose of the yellow button above the coin door, and the other circular hole just below it? Credit button (?), and...?

thanks!

Yellow's the credit button, and the empty hole is the coin door lock. Theres one lower down as well for the cash box. Both locks are gone (Thankfully). So i'll need to put a couple new ones in. :D

That credit button will get pulled, and the hole with be filled with some dowel and bondo.

Nah, otherwise I'd have shown her how to use the 'me' tag for properly neurotic 3rd person self-referencing.

How's this too?....

Thanks!  There was another one in out here that just went on Kijiji with a SkyKid PCB in it for $700CDN. Its what prompted the guy who sold me this one to list it. I think know i got a better deal too. ;)

OH! 50pts if anyone can find me the vector file for the control panel art. I found the coin door and instruction card .ai files, but i can't seem to find the CP ones anyplace :(

I don't recall seeing vectors out in the wild (or I would have grabbed them), although I believe they were done and repro'd ... can't remember who did them and I think they were already sold out by the time I went looking.

One thing to remember is that the CPs (well, the Joust logo portion of the CPs) were backlit.

Pulled out my notes out of my cab and it looks like Phoenix Arcade was the one who repro'd it, but (not surprisingly) on their site anymore. You might try dropping Jeff Rothe a line -- I have it in my head that he may have been involved and I don't know if he would have any objections to releasing the artwork if it isn't currently being repro'd.

Sorry can't be more help.  :-\

Wicked, Thanks,

I just sent Jeff a message via his Blog. I hope he has something.

I found a couple crude .bmp files of them, but they aren't really much help.  I have a vector of the upright as well, maybe i can use paths from that and make my own worst case :(

Yeah right?!  It would have been money if it was a taito original.  I did find some documentation on the PCB in the floor of the cab. pin out, DIP's, etc.

Cody84's taking the board off my hands to put in another cab we picked up a few months ago for him. So i want to build him a JAMMA adaptor for it.

Anyone wanna nail me to the cross for suggesting i make this a Multi-Williams?  >:D

Yes, although trying to play Robotron or Defender on it might be punishment enough.

Since there don't seem to be any CP repros out there, I imagine that original sticks are still impossible to find?

Now you know what's holding me back. :)

Apparently ArcadeShop sells repros, and repros of the buttons too. But i know the stick repros are listed as for the "Upright". beyond that i've been working since i got home last night, so i haven't really spent much time looking.

Are you gonna run a restore thread here at BYOAC?
Are you hinting that i should have run my Mario Bros one here instead of KLOV?

Thought had crossed my mind. but i have a Red Tent, and a the Mario Bros in the pipe first before i can realistically tackle this. For now, i might prep it for the JROK, but thats it. Maybe just let parts come in as i make orders for other cabs.

Robotron would be quite the reach if your using one joystick from each player.
Finished: 2 bartops and a cocktail
Not-Finished: 1bartop, 2cocktails, and 2 stand ups.

Is jrok still selling boards? You'll want another for when you find that perfect Robotron cabinet and a pair of 4" Wicos.  :cheers:

Yeah, that was one of my first stops today.  :(  I did manage to find low res versions of the cocktail CPO's, but they're bmp files and not at all quality to trace over in illustrator.  I can't even attach them to this thread.

Sort of but no, not really. I'm looking for the art files. I already have a printer that can make me reverse printed ones. So i don't need a company that can print them, i need the vectored art files.

Here you go:

Joust Coin Door Art

However, you have to sign up and donate $10 USD (about $87.52 CDN)

EDIT: Looks like the above site only has the cocktail coin door art.

what quality/resolution do you need in illustrator.
I been digging around google and many other sites, and all I found was this 504x483 jpg that has both CPOs.
Looking at it closely, however, I don't think this would be good enough since the graphics around where the joysticks would be is a little fuzzy.

That resolution is WAY too low. Chance is going to need 300dpi or better yet... an original .ai file.

Yeah,

Nice find tho. I'm contemplating going the "Multi-Williams" rout with this. And if I do I'll make my own custom CPO.

...however! Recent developments today have given me a possible like on an actual Joust board set. :D sooo... Yeah :)

We'll see.  But you know I guess I'm still on the hunt for the ai files either way

While I hate the idea of disfiguring a Joust cocktail, it's not like you would be making it worse going MW.  ::)

There was a time when I liked (probably too strong a word) working with Williams board sets and there is plenty of good documentation out there, but wiring them from scratch will be a complete ---smurfing--- pain wonderful exercise in restoration (does dokert over on KLOV still make Williams harnesses?).

Depending on which way you go, if you can't find files, let me know and I'll drop my CPs onto the scanner and you can vector away.

I dunno, it's such a unique machine, designed specifically for TWO player Joust... none of the other MW games take  advantage of two player games/controls.

$0.03. Do what you want. Reach across the front and play Robotron with the two separate joysticks. Smoke a bowl, put in an LCD. Make yourself happy.
