Turn based rpgs are an excellent way to kill time on an exercise bike.  16 hours of pedaling later, Iíve finally defeated Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.

This is a fantastic idea. I only watch shows (Jack Ryan Season 2 right now). What's some good ones to play? I didn't like any of the FF after III.

Right now, I'm working on Chrono Trigger.  My SNES took a dump in the 90s so I missed a lot of the games on it.  Takes more interaction than Mystic Quest but still doable while biking.  I'd be pounding the A button with one hand, texting with the other, and pedaling during some portions of Mystic Quest.  Not gonna happen with this one.

I planned to work out the details (in the workshop) of installing a linear actuator on my TV antenna to adjust for seasonal atmospheric changes.  The weather was nice enough to go up on the roof and complete the project. Chuffed to get this done in February instead of waiting until summer.

Been a long time since playing with an actuator.  It was fun.

Finally got my wonky copy of Dragon Warrior working, several pins were very worn.  This is the copy I played as a kid so it was sentimental. 

Found a YouTube video where a guy repaired an edge connector on an arcade board by melting solder on the pin and the wiping it off with his bare finger. Yeah, don't do that. I feel like I was trolled.

Anyway, I did his solder wipe (with rag) and got it from a red or white screen to booting kinda sorta. So then I took a sharp pocket knife and scraped each pin from top to bottom. Several times, trying to get them smooth and uniform.

Then some alcohol wipes.

Now, with a firm insertion, it's working fine on my top loader and 2 clones.

Eh I don't think it's a bad purchase either way.  I enjoyed it, I just realized later that other rpgs were essentially the same damn game and I was done with level grinding for life.   :cheers:

The random battles don't bother me so much now like they did when I was a kid.  Kind of soothing in a weird way, I guess.  Dragon Warrior has some weird clunk in the interface - it's like going back to the really old point and click adventures and having to specific on the correct verb rather than just clicking the action button.

Picked up some new fun at an auction. CRTs with vacuum tubes, should be fun. Top one is a TV, record player, radio combo. I was able to get snow on it. Bottom one I am getting a Halo.

Yeah, it was maintained by a tv/film studio for years as art, so I jumped on it. $120 for both. Hopefully I can get them going. I plan to do my entire living room in a mid-century motif.

If they are easy enough to fix, I might throw some vintage tv on a loop that plays through a pi or something, so you get appropriate era television when you turn it on.

I'm jealous over that vintage haul.  Around here you'll see one of those sets beat to hell with a hole in the side and all the electronics gone with a $300 price tag on it.  At $120 I'd take the things and run before they changed their mind.

We get that ---That which is odiferous and causeth plants to grow--- around here also.  People think because its the only one they know of for 25 miles it must be the last one on Earth.

Or we get the "I checked eBay" line.  Yeah.  They are on eBay mother scratcher but theirs has been refurbished and is in working condition and worth the $300.  Yours has a family of raccoons living in it....

Ok, that Lock N Chase I picked up in CA had some sprite issues. The game works and all, but a few items, like the car that drops Lupin off, was all scrambled. I took out the PCB and I saw an EPROM that looked like this...



Crazy, right?

I ordered a new set of blank EPROMs from ArcadePartsandRepair.com and burned a replacement. Popped it in, fired it up, and...

I replaced another one next to it that wasnít as bad but still had a hole...



So I just need to do some touch up painting, but this one is ZapCon-ready.

Yes. I have an industrial eraser to wipe them and a burner to write them.

They are usually covered with a sticker or something to protect them, but none of these have a sticker over the window (although they do have factory stickers identifying them.)

I feel sorry for the guy that lost this little beauty but I found a working 20v Dewalt drill in the middle of the road on the way to work.  It looks like most of the damage is superficial and was sustained during the fall onto the road.

Found out a sort of remake of The Ninja Warriors exists on SNES and I think it's literally impossible without cheating. There's a program called Game Genie Guy that will patch ROMs and even with infinite health I had to consult a faq to figure out the final boss.

Anyway, one more down....
