Not sure what level of chuffy this is but I found this old lunchbox in a house my company is planning on demolishing.  Its a nice piece added to my collection of Star Wars memorabilia that I'll never get to showcase.

Turned out they were celebrating Mardi Gras in Galveston yesterday.


This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

I have a shiny new server I'm bringing online. I feel pretty chuffed about that.

I've also been working in my arcade. Fixed the yoke on my upright Star Wars cabinet. It was twitchy moving vertically.

I had a spare yoke I've had for years (before I ever got the actual Star Wars cabinet). I hooked it up to test and it was twitchy horizontally. I removed the good vertical pot from it, and swapped it for the twitchy vertical pot in the original yoke, and voila - smooth as butter! Previously you couldn't get past wave one or two due to flaky control, now I got through wave three until I got my butt kicked.

Then I removed the old sticker from the yoke, cleaned the crap out of the cover with goo-gone and a razor blade until it was smooth as a baby's bottom, and put on new repro artwork I'd had for years as well. Gorgeous!

I also cleaned the crap out of the arcade glass and the monitor, and *wow* holy crap what a difference it made getting rid of years of grim, really popped now.

So here's the other bit I got running finally. In one corner of the arcade, next to the air hockey table (yeah, flying pucks, yikes!), I've mounted a flat panel monitor. When the arcade is fired up, it starts playing a mix of 80's music videos, vintage Atari 2600 and other commercials, 80's movie trailers, the MAME arcade video intros from cinemarcade.com (that is sadly offline it seems), and some modern stuff I threw in as well, on a random loop.

Pictures attached - quality is terrible, hard to get a good photo, but when the black lights are on and the machines are lit up, it looks like the music videos are just hovering in mid air in the arcade.

Current play list at the bottom, going to continue to expand it. Particularly looking for high quality Atari/Nintendo/arcade classic commercials if anyone knows a source - I've raided Youtube and retrojunk.com.

Heh. What's the plan with that?

Been a long wait but this finally arrived the other day :D



Like Howard said its basically a everdrive for the PS.

No more worries of worn lasers and slightly better loading times.

1980s + AC/DC songs + arcade = "Who Made Who". Couldn't find the video?

Got a promotion at the beginning of the year, back into a leadership position, after half a decade of taking a step back from any kind of ďmanagement ď role. In an art career, when becoming a manager itís always a balance of splitting management tasks and art creation responsibilities. Though most companies make Leads do more management than actual art work, but my current company is small enough that I can do both. So itís a win-win!

2019 is shaping up to be much better than Ď18!

Heh. Media player I'm using has a 32 gig SD card limit so I had to make some cuts. But I just ordered a 128 gig thumb drive which it will also use, so I'll add more then :)

Thank your friend for me!  :laugh2:

So here's the other bit I got running finally. In one corner of the arcade, next to the air hockey table (yeah, flying pucks, yikes!), I've mounted a flat panel monitor. When the arcade is fired up, it starts playing a mix of 80's music videos, vintage Atari 2600 and other commercials, 80's movie trailers, the MAME arcade video intros from cinemarcade.com (that is sadly offline it seems), and some modern stuff I threw in as well, on a random loop.

Pictures attached - quality is terrible, hard to get a good photo, but when the black lights are on and the machines are lit up, it looks like the music videos are just hovering in mid air in the arcade.

Current play list at the bottom, going to continue to expand it. Particularly looking for high quality Atari/Nintendo/arcade classic commercials if anyone knows a source - I've raided Youtube and retrojunk.com.




Man, Ernest Cline could take a page from your book!  I totally want to see this, but looks like someone (who the hell is "SME"?) got a takedown on  your video...

Also, gotta suggest "Fantasy" by Aldo Nova for your playlist.

Yes it does, but I was torn between the embarrassment of a man my age bragging about how many he can do, and the thrill I'm feeling. I thought the way I posted it was a good compromise. But being coy is also unbecoming, so the answer is 46.  Total, that is. The goal was 40.

The question it begs isnít how many you did, but why you felt compelled to keep a promise to your 25 year old self. He was probably an idiot. Lord knows my 25 year old self was an idiot lol

Congrats on almost pushing your age!!

Oh, in that case, the answer is, indeed, "7".

The goal wasn't so much specifically about a certain exercise, that just happened to be the metric I settled on. 25 year-old Drake didn't allow me to get weak in middle age, and for that I thank him. Maybe not so much for one or two of the tattoos, though.

Nice. It is good to see you posting arcade stuff here. Thank you for all that you do to keep this site running.

I second this!

Got a promotion at the beginning of the year, back into a leadership position, after half a decade of taking a step back from any kind of ďmanagement ď role. In an art career, when becoming a manager itís always a balance of splitting management tasks and art creation responsibilities. Though most companies make Leads do more management than actual art work, but my current company is small enough that I can do both. So itís a win-win!

2019 is shaping up to be much better than Ď18!

Congrats!  Professional happiness is severely underrated with everyone chasing the money.  If you can find it, hold on to it.   :cheers:

Fortunately what I love to do also supplies a decent wage. It's something I worked hard for, and sacrificed to achieve for a long time.  Especially from my background, which I won't go into long-winded details of my life story, but lets just say I was one of those kids that got out of an impoverished abusive upbringing, escaped the ghetto by working hard on achieving my dream career.   :cheers:

There's ghettos in every city.  You gotta travel more...

(besides, my youth was spent in Toronto -- Jane and Finch area)


edit:  Vancouver is relatively safe though. There are ghettos there, but it's mainly skid row areas, addicts all hopped up on heroin.  There are some areas outside of the main Vancouver area, like Surrey, which has some rougher areas (hence the local expression "better safe than Surrey"). But compared to the Toronto ghettos, they're not that bad.

5 years ago I took a 50% pay cut to get out of a toxic job situation.  I was making a lot but it was taking a toll on my mental health and all of my relationships.  I was basically on call 24/7.  I had to cancel vacations multiple times, I never got home in time to eat a single dinner with my family, I took a conference call from the delivery room (after the baby was born and while my wife slept but still), I got reamed out for going to my father-in-law's funeral and missing 2 days of work, etc.  I could go on and on and on.  Leaving that job was the best decision I ever made.  I thought I couldn't do it because of the money and I felt trapped but here I am 5 years later making more now than I did before and working about 1/3 the time.  Life is good!   :cheers:

If youíve got time to kill check out Emporium, they opened up about 1 year ago and have a ton of pins and arcades.  Former movie theater so they have the big screen running, and of course the obligatory bar to make the whole thing profitable.

I love San Francisco, although nowadays it is so congested with traffic and homeless people that it's not near as enjoyable as it was when I was growing up. Chinatown is actually a pretty cool area. I wouldn't let the fact that you're going to Japan deter you from stopping by there.  The only similarity you will probably find between Chinatown and Japan is the high concentration of Asians.  ;)

Eff that, drive to Sonoma and drink wine. Chinatown takes like an hour to see, don't let her fool you.

I have gout, drinking wine was never an option. Why the ---fudgesicle--- would we go to Chinatown before we go to Japan?

...because it's not Japantown?

The only Weeabo-ish thing Ive done is marry an Asian, and she's Chinese ya pleb. 

I plan to travel a lot. Been to almost every state, including Alaska and Hawaii  . International travel has been limited to Mexico, Canada, and Taiwan. Japan this year, and probably Ireland or something in the "UK"  in 2 years. No one else in my immediate family has ever left the time zone; I want to go out and see the world not just look at pictures of it on the internet.

If itís a clear day itís tough to beat a walk on Lands End:



In general I think the Presidio and a Golden Gate park are the two best most underrated places in the city.  Fishermanís Warf and Chinatown are highly overrated tourist traps, IMO.

Nah, bro, he needs to stand in line at 6am and then wait 4 hours to go do a tour of a dingy old prison.   :lol  People were shocked I skipped Alcatraz.  Yeah, hard pass kthx.  Chinatown was worth a walking tour, if just to see cardboard bins of sharkfins selling for thousands of dollars a pound.  SFMOMA was pretty cool, and we did enjoy walking around the Palace of Fine Arts.

MOMA is legit, Palace of Fine Arts is cool for a few, especially if you grab a sandwich and some beers and head to Chrissy Field (might wanna brown bag it).  Lived in SF for 6 years and never once went to Alcatraz, still haven't, flippin waste of money.

Yeah Alcatraz is a HARD PASS from me too. I love museums, but I didn't like MOMA in NYC ; maybe I just don't like modern art. The MET was amazeballs though.  Palace of Fine arts looks cool, I'll see if she wants to check it out or do Land's End or both.

I don't mind doing super touristy things , as long as its something I think is neat. Like going to the top of the Empire State building, same with going to the top of the 101 in Taipei ; both were cool even if you have to pay money to ride up an elevator. Alcatraz just seems dumb and I dunno what there is to do or see at the Warf so they weren't even on my radar. Im most looking forward to hand feeding deer at Nara it seems so cool!

You can hang out at my place and hand feed the deer. I had to shag a dozen of them off of my driveway yesterday morning before work. I never tried to feed one, but they hang out pretty close to me when I am doing yard work.

I won't recommend any touristy things, other than checking out the Golden Gate Bridge from Battery Godfrey. It's a really nice view, and less congested than the regular look-out points. Its somewhat of a local's knowledge place, you see some tourists there, but for the most part it's pretty empty from the crowds.

There are 2 barcades I used to go to when I was living there. The Emporium SF and Brewcade.  Both are fairly close to one another, close to the Lower Haight area.

The Hayes Valley neighborhood is a great place to get lunch/dinner. It's got a lot of nice restaurants and bars, and it's close to the Union area but far enough from it that you don't get the riff-raff spilling over.  I recommend Monsieur Benjamin (french) and Papito Hayes (Mexican) to eat at.  Excellent food.

If you go down to the Mission District, there are a lot of great coffee shops, and more great restaurants to eat at. Valencia St is where it's at.  I recommend a Peruvian place called Limůn, fantastic food and it was probably my favorite restaurant in the area.
Mission Beach Cafe is a great place for lunch/brunch. It gets busy there, so expect a wait, but the food is also excellent.
If you're interested in pastries, and baked goods, there's a really popular bakery in the Mission District called Tartine. It's one of those more hoity-toity places that always has a line of people waiting to get in. But the pastries are incredible though.

Chinatown is ok, I guess. Not really that exciting, tbh. There are so many other neighborhoods in SF that are much more interesting, and less touristy feeling. Clement St. in the Inner Richmond area is what I'd call a more real Asian area of SF. It's more Vietnamese, but it's a cute neighborhood with a lot of food options as well.

Ok, I lied, just one obvious touristy thing to check out if you're into science:  California Academy of Sciences is in Golden Gate Park. It's a really good Science Center place to go to, they put a lot of money into it and there's always a lot of things to look at and learn about. We used to go there frequently with our daughter, and even my wife and I enjoyed it.

Let me know if you need any more recommendations. We lived close to Hayes Valley/Lower Haight area for almost 2 years and we tried to explore the city as much as we could. There are a lot of hidden gems in that city, aside from the more broadcast touristy things to do.

This whole story is suspicious. First off, is it better than an Arcade1up? I donít know but thatís a pretty low bar to to use as a measurement to decide if you should haul some junk home. Second, you were at a party?

Suspicious indeed.

Itís better than an A1U because it knows what it is and isnít trying to pretend to be something itís not.

Second, I have friends outside this hobby, not like some of you pasty shut-ins. :)

The guy told me the sound was out and that down didnít work. I took it home, reseated the JAMMA connector, and it works just fine. He didnít care what I did with it. I have no plans to keep it, but itís interesting to see what was used. Itís running a Game Elf 412-1, a decased Dell 4:3, a cheap 4 way joystick (although the 8 way games are all active), and based on the paperwork, it was $800 brand new.

The Mother in Law has decided we should do Christmas in Florida again.  I'm sure I swore I would never do it again, but hey its a free vacation  :laugh2: :laugh2:  @PBJ Seemingly will be in your neck of the woods for exactly 1 hour, Its  a bizarre route to fly, London/Texas/Orlando :)

11 years married today. It almost came without either my wife or I noticing. Never thought weíd have a 2 year old at this stage in our lives, and weíve decided to have another. Damn, im going to a old man when our kids graduate high-school.
Our marriage is strong, the missus still keeps me on my toes and surprises me with her coolness. Told her I wanted to get a dual-Daytona setup over dinner, and she said sheís  totally fine with it as long as we have the space when we buy a house. She also countered by asking for a House of the Dead cab.
I got a good one. :)

I MacGyvered this setup to vacuum up all the leaves I have on my property.  I looked at purchasing a leaf bagger and / or leaf rake.  Both would have run me $350.  I bought the attachment for my deck for $25 and rigged up hose and duct work I found at Home Depot for under $50.  Not too shabby for something I threw together over two days.  The only down side was I had to sacrifice some mdf ear marked for a Nintendo cabaret.  Oh well.  $225 was saved so I'm not complaining.

I used to but the magnitude of leaves has gotten so bad it was pointless to mulch them up as it would be as if I didn't mulch them at all.  It started to kill my grass in areas where I didn't get much sun.  So this bad boy has helped immensely.

Yeah, before the game we're working on now, all the work this studio did was in ports. We still do a lot of that work now, because it's good money for keeping the lights on, but the idea is to push forward with this original IP and hope that it does well enough to put us into a from-scratch development space.

I agree!  The design is awesome and I lucked out because they had left over posters from other dates at the booth that weren't nearly as cool. 

I only buy concert posters if they are specific to the show I am at (so I won't buy generic tour posters).  Pearl Jam has been doing this forever so I have quite a few of them from their shows over the years but I think recently bands have realized that it is a great way to make some extra revenue since actual music sales are at an all-time low because of streaming and downloads.  I love that this poster has the date and the city on it.  I got one at the Radiohead show I went to last year at MSG... I'm running out of wall space!

They shoulda been hella famous if Ken could only right a hook, but I love them! Fantastic Planet might be my favorite album of all time.

Have you listened to the 2 new albums since they reformed?  They are really really good.  Took me a few listens to appreciate them but I think these are exactly the records the band would have made following Fantastic Planet if they had never broken up.  They even continue the "Segue" instrumentals throughout both of them.  The Heart Is A Monster starts with "Segue 4" and the latest album carries it through to "Segue 12".

Having some fun while Iím down here for an unfun reason.

Went to an arcade graveyard to visit a collector friend.  How often do you get to use an outhouse with marquees laying around? 

Also went fishing and caught something edible for probably the first time in 25 years.

We started using it a lot because weíd have British builders who threw up their finished projects and more often than not, they would say they were ďquite chuffedĒ that was done.

I for one encourage itís usage. It makes me feel quite chuffed.

Keep an eye out for the ďSummer of ChuffĒ and ďChufftemberĒ threads that might pop up.

That and some "official" 14 pin snk connectors are on the way.  This just came in first.  I wonder if they are ever going to release another 161 in 1 and put the remaining games on it.  Most of the omitted games either suck or are cheap to buy but there are a few I'd like to get an inexpensive bootleg or something.

Does the carpet match the drapes?
I got hardwood floors ;)

That and some "official" 14 pin snk connectors are on the way.  This just came in first.  I wonder if they are ever going to release another 161 in 1 and put the remaining games on it.  Most of the omitted games either suck or are cheap to buy but there are a few I'd like to get an inexpensive bootleg or something.

This is the cart I have: http://www.saveyourgames.it/index.php?route=product/product&path=72&product_id=95

12 year old me would like to point out that he said wood. 

I just picked up a 161 in 1 because they are super cheap.... I'll have to live with the system for a while before I know if I want to invest that much in a sd cart.

Somewhere in that rat's nest of cables is a fully working mvs.  Got the impedance right on the first try, so I'm pretty chuffed about that.

Congrats man!

Yeah looking at the thread I had the impression it was cool stuff I bought but really didn't need....  I should have posted my guitar here...lol.

We started using it a lot because weíd have British builders who threw up their finished projects and more often than not, they would say they were ďquite chuffedĒ that was done.

I for one encourage itís usage. It makes me feel quite chuffed.

Keep an eye out for the ďSummer of ChuffĒ and ďChufftemberĒ threads that might pop up.

A Merry or Happy Chuffmas may come up during the end of the year.

I did, but I was quoting "Celebrity Jeopardy" SNL skit :(    Personally I don't have an issue with the word and I call things "functionally retarded" more often than I'd like to admit.

You are supposesd to say mentally chufficapped.
Nafficapable

That being said, I don't like the 161 in 1 carts because they are loaded with hacks, and the cart I had every game was set to level 8, so I'd have to go to the op menu and set it back to 4 every time I loaded a game. I'm good at SamSHoII but Im not level 8 good.


I'm chuffed because MK11 dropped, but Im naffed it doesnt support Ultra Wide Screen resolutions. But I did pull off Cassie's decap brutality without knowing how to do it, so that was cool.

Well eventually I'm going to get universe bios 4.0 and I think that solves all of those issues.  I've read that the 161 in 1 does save settings so long as it's inserted in a single slot mvs.  I might throw it up on mame if it's available to see how it works.  Kinda naffed that I'll have to fork over the cash twice, once for the bios and again for the adapter board.   

Thinking about it I'm not sure how a 2d fighting game could support ultra widescreen considering the screen scroll effects many of the special moves.

Soul Calibur 6 and Tekken 7 support 21:9 , I think T7 required a hack though. As for the 161in1, it'll remember settings for the last 3 games loaded, as soon as you load a 4th, the 1st is gone; at least thats how I remember my banana colored cart acting.

Heh... that looks hilarious.  Maybe there isn't enough arena to stretch it out that far? 

If it saves the last 3 that should be good enough for now.  I tend to stick to one game until I beat it... don't move around a lot.  I've seen various hardware hacks to the carts that improves sound quality ectÖ. might do those as well.  This is just a project to keep me busy at night after all.

They are actually pretty rockin speakers, good midrange and low distortion. I dont like having a subwoofer at my PC, so I got a good set of regular desktop speakers. I believe they are Z200s , but I only spent like $20 for them.

I had a hole in the roof for the first 9 months of occupancy. Asked the maintenance man several times to fix it. Always got "I'm always chasing down roof leaks" as a response. That leak would drip directly onto board 5 when it would rain or have excessive snow melt. The last blizzard caused around 10 to 15 gallons to pour through the roof. That was enough. Borrowed a ladder and patched the ---smurfing--- hole myself with a screen repair patch and Flexseal. We've had a few rain storms since, no more leak.

Keep in mind... It may look fancy... But it's just a bunch of dartboards in a garage with a toilet (and now A/C). Everything is insured. If ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- happens, ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- happens.

I MacGyvered this setup to vacuum up all the leaves I have on my property.  I looked at purchasing a leaf bagger and / or leaf rake.  Both would have run me $350.  I bought the attachment for my deck for $25 and rigged up hose and duct work I found at Home Depot for under $50.  Not too shabby for something I threw together over two days.  The only down side was I had to sacrifice some mdf ear marked for a Nintendo cabaret.  Oh well.  $225 was saved so I'm not complaining.







How is this rig working for you? My house is insane with leaves as well. Very interested to know if that rig is working as intended as I will probably be copying you this year.  :cheers:

It worked amazing.  I have two large oaks on the front of my property and I am surrounded on three sides by various other trees in my back yard.  The only problem I ran into Vigo was I had to wait until the leaves were dry before I could suck them up.  Otherwise they would bottleneck at the duct reducer.  I'll send you a message breaking down what I used and where to find it.

Chuff time! The gameroom gets a few updates.

Earlier this year, I added a foosball table to my game room. In the 90's, I played competitive foosball. Yes it's a thing. Or rather, it was. Back in the day, I'd play in leagues and I'd travel to tournaments and play. We always played Tornado tables and for the most part, that's still the table of choice in the States. This is a late 90's Tornado coin-op model. I picked it up for $500 and put another couple hundred into it to bring it up to current tournament standards. All in all, it was a pretty good deal.

Technically I bought this in late 2018 (December 23rd), and I finished working on it 2019. I've already went and played a couple tournaments. I did terrible and I'm just shocked at the lack of people playing. Back when I played, you could find tables just about anywhere. now I can only think of 2 places in the St. Louis area that even have a table.

The last addition was the stools. I found the stools for $5. They are great. There is actually a small walk way between the table and chairs, it's not as crowded as I think the picture makes it look.

I think this year I'll add a couple more small games and spend some time this winter playing.

Looks nice. I had a foosball table, made for home use so no where near the build quality of that. It sat pretty much unused and I actually had trouble giving it away.  I was tempted to get an airhockey table but was afraid of it having the same fate.

Iíll never do air hockey again. In my space, it was so loud. If anyone was playing air hockey, everyone was playing air hockey. The upside to air hockey is that everyone knows how to play and itís fun.

I got rid of mine pretty easy. Just had to sell it for 50% less than itís worth. :(

As difficult as a pool table to move, and the only advantage is you can put it next to a wall.

Been awhile since Iíve done a $0 repair like this.  I replaced the back box GI connector on my driver board because I got tired of those lights flickering.  Noticed the goalie looked weird.  Touched him and realized the only thing holding it together was the cracked decal.  Rubber was about to explode.  So I added duck tape on the back, put an iPad protector on the front, and wrapped in clear tape.  That locks in the original.  Then I printed a new goalie on photo paper, laminated it, and glued to the old goalie. This will last forever in home use.   :lol

Thanks for stopping by!

Originally I wasn't supposed to be on stream this week, but the guy who was going to get interviewed got slammed with a last minute workload, so they asked me to fill in. I jokingly suggested bringing in an old console and playing some games on stream while drinking whiskey...and they agreed!

Please tell me there's something that sucks about opt2not's job.  Congrats, Malenko.  I'm personally spending a good 10 hours a day pondering my direction in life.

It felt silly to start a whole thread about this, but here's the current project.  I'm preeeeeeeeetty sure the xbox hard drive in my turtle box is about to give out.  Percussive maintenance and reseating the IDE connector is getting less successful.  Turns out nowadays you get a SATA -> IDE adapter and can hot swap a modern drive into these things.  Use a program called "Chimp" to clone your old drive onto the new one.  Catch with the adapter is it has to be a newer one that supports a Master/Slave jumper.  You forget how annoying it is to work with this old junk, but it's still pretty cool that it works. 

Well, it might work. 

Crapped out halfway through on me last night... but...

Very Punny!

I'll be working at the FMC plant in Delaware. Dupont bought out FMC , in Delaware at least , so now they have to hire people like me to convert all the servers and networking from FMC's standard over to Dupont's standards. It pays better than my last gig, but its "Contract to Hire" so there's an outside chance that in 2 years I'll be unemployed.

Just good.  I wouldn't spend $70 on this one.  Nikka has better ones in their lineup that are worth that cost. Like their Pure Malt one.

Well it's not all butterflies and lollipops.

- Unstable Industry:  The longest I've been at a company has been 4 years.  Every studio I've been at has lasted 2 years average.  Games get canceled all the time. Studios either do mass layoffs, or close their doors completely.

- You work with a lot of annoying younger people, and egotistical man-children.

- Lots of overtime, most of which go unpaid because we're all salary.

But hey, no one bats an eye when you're drinking on the job.

That is really ridiculously cool. There can't be too many set pieces more iconic that that, I'm sure I'd be blown away by the Indiana Jones stuff too.

Well, it might work. 

And son of a ---smurfette---, it actually worked.  I took the old hard drive out of the Xbox case so that I could get the power and IDE cables as flat as possible, reduce any possibility of connector jitter and tugging when I did the hot swap.  Let it run overnight, and now I've got an old Xbox with a 7200RPM 2TB SATA drive in it.  Seems like UnleashX doesn't recognize that 1.7TB G: partition I have now, but it's working fine without any additional configuration in XBMC.  I did have it initially running as an exact clone of the old 160GB drive, but then I took a shower and stood under the water muttering to myself, "what would they think of me if they knew I left 1.7TB of space on the table...."

And, now, mostly for my own future reference when I search on here to remember how I did it:

If youíre running a fairly recent bios, the dvd drive check is probably disabled and you can boot up with both hard drives attached and no need to hot swap.

When you get into Chimp, first ďscan physical ide devicesĒ and make sure both drives appear.

Then do ďmaster drive optionsĒ and pick partition information.  If the partitions donít show up, run the XBPartitioner tool and choose the option that matches your setup.  Probably ďF takes remaining spaceĒ if your old drive isnít too large.  If you donít do this, your F partition wonít copy over in chimp.

Use the option in Chimp 261812 - Clone Master to Slave -> Selective (Select Partitions) -> C, E, F, & G takes remaining space on a large new drive.

Only performance difference I noted was a few more seconds of initial boot time when the system comes on, but I think that's the adapter hand shaking between the Xbox and HD.  Once booted didnít notice any difference.

This was the adapter I used, HDE RXD-62987-7

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JVUXMRI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Put some tape on the back of it unless you like seeing sparks fly.

 :cheers:

EDIT - the new drive needs the SATA adapter jumper set to "Slave" when you're copying the old drive.  Change it to "Master" when you install it into the Xbox.

PS: In a second Xbox, when I upgraded a 30GB drive to 320GB, I couldn't figure out how to make the F partition on the new drive large - it always made an exact clone of the F partition and left ~290GB unusable.  So I used the options above and ended up with an exact clone of C, E, and F and then a new large partition G.  In my case, it wasn't a big deal because that F partition was ~20GB and has almost everything I want on it already, but the rub is there's only like 100MB free on it.  XBMC works fine with a G partition, but you'll need to update the paths on your Apps/Video links to point towards it.  I've noticed that XBMC doesn't like two copies of the same game on two different partitions.  It'll work if you use the file explorer to run the default.xbe, but if you try to navigate to it through the Apps shortcut it's not working.  It shows the game one time and doesn't have the icon.  You can probably get around this limitation if you use different folder names or something.

Put some tape on the back of it unless you like seeing sparks fly.

 :cheers:

I need to do that.  My original xbox won't even boot anymore....  got another at the pick n pay for like 5 bucks and it works but the hdds are starting to chug so they are probably on their way out.

Nice. If you havenít done so already, for longevityís sake you should remove the clock battery. Itís prone to failure and battery leakage.
http://myoriginalxbox.weebly.com/capacitor-removal.html

They leak but there aren't exactly large piles of dead Xbox motherboards because of them.  Given that the fix is just twisting them off there's no harm in doing it, though.  I'll double check but pretty sure I already did that years ago.


Was kind of interesting to see the current state of CoinOps.  Looks like the 'community' opinion really changed on that guy and now everyone's moving to XBMC Emustation.  That's unfortunately Pi-like but looks promising.

Listen to Canada-Dad. One clock capacitor had already taken its ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- on my motherboard, the other one started dripping when I yanked  it off.

Currently replacing my 30gb hard drive from 2000.  It's the one my parents bought me to cheer me up after I nearly died from Mono.

That one damn near did.  I ended up in the ER having my throat drained of some obscene amount of pus (28cc's, IIRC).  The campus clinic had given me so many shots of steroids to get the swelling down that I was at risk of cardiac arrest.  ---smurf--- running that place would just give me a shot and tell me to gargle salt water.

Yeah, no.  Didn't eat or drink for a week.  Didn't have a car.  At one point, a friend loaded me into the back of his pickup like a dead body... and drove me back to the clinic.   :lol

Anyway, was just funny to open that ancient Xbox and find that hard drive in there.

Super chuffed about this Alan 1 yoke.  I received it last week and made a stand for it.  It plays great on the Star Wars Trilogy arcade.  I still need to lubricate the internals but the controller and board are worth the money.

Cheers Opt,

Yeah the CF cards are a awesome replacement for HDD's etc.
I did something similar with my Site 4 but I used a IDE SSD module instead as its not compatible with CF cards.

To be fair opt hes starting to really pick up pace with production so hopefully wont be that long!

I was 300+ about 3 weeks ago and started off at like 700+ when I originally put my name down!

I didn't think the ngpc had enough good games on it to warrant a cart.  Anything worth mentioning besides metal slug, ect?

I wish these guys would get with the program and get a factory to help them with production.... most of these carts use off the shelf parts, so if there is enough demand someone in China is eventually going to clone the thing anyway, so they might as well cooperate and make some money.

Metal Slug 1&2, Puzzle Bobble, Sonic, Card fighter few others I cant recall right now.

Its not a mind blowing system but its lots of fun :)

All the fighting games are really good on the NGPC. Great condensing to 2 buttons, and the sprites are really stylized.
Also, card battle clash is my favourite. Neo Turf Masters is great, and the Metal Slugs are on point, though I prefer MS2 rather than 1. Lastly thereís a good sonic game, and I like the Mega Man Battle game, similar to the CPS2 game.

A drill press is worth it's weight in gold.  I got a relatively cheap one years ago and it still works like a champ.  Not only will your holes be straighter but like magic things you thought were too hard to drill through become drillable.

I brought in an X-men arcade board, Supergun and OSSC set-up for my companyís weekly stream. I was going to be on-stream, but unfortunately I had a lunch meeting and had someone sub in for me. But in any case, the setup worked without fail, and we were able to properly stream from the original board.
Pretty happy about that!

Weíre talking about doing it again next week and IĎve been asked to bring in a fighting game of some kind.

Sun in Phoenix ain't no joke.  I don't think I've ever been anywhere that's that bright.  Lack of clouds in the sky, no big trees, no tall buildings... no idea why it's like that, but there was a severe lack of verticality and shade.  It was almost overwhelming, I felt like a human ant under a magnifying glass. 

Bring long sleeves and sunglasses, European.

So the trailer floor has been a bit weak around the vents for a while now.  Last month my fat ass cracked the floor around the vent and almost went through.  The problem is the heating vents are so wide that you can't get to that area of the floor from underneath.  I was cleaning out the vents in preparation for laying a new floor when I figured out how to remove a section of the vent pipe from inside the house.  Some 2x4's for bracing screwed in via pocket holes (man that kregg jig has paid for itself a million times over) and the floor is sturdy again. 

So who has two thumbs and doesn't have to spend all next week putting a floor in?  This guy.

Good to hear your house repair went smoothly Howard.  I love it when you think you are going to spend a significant amount of time on something and it only take a fraction of time to complete.

Finally after 13 years of trying and with temperatures heading for high 30's (In the UK) our boss has finally capitulated and allowed tailored shorts to be worn at work.  Oh yeah, today I am going to the work dressed for the beach, Blue cotton shorts, short sleeved cotton shirt and a pair of Super Mario Mushroom Vans, still gonna be too bloody hot though.
