just learned that the Euro monitor bezel that i have is different to the US version. It has red bugs and mushroom, the US version has Green ones.

couldnt resist a test

theres something strange going on with the sync - tried adjusting the pots on the remote board of the hantarex monitor but could not get the monitor to sync. scrolling of the screen was uncontrollable.

any ideas what could be wrong?

fixed the display simply by switching the monitor form negative to positive sync. there is a toggle switch on the chassis pcb :)

set dips switches so game in free play mode.

test played and number of minor issues appear:

1. loose ground connection in the control panel wiring - sometimes buttons suddenly stop working. wriggling the molex connectors can get it working again.

2. constant beeping when coin door harness connected. need to double check wiring hack/soldering. disconnected coindoor temporarily - not a problem as in freeplay mode.

3. vertical movement of the trackball is reversed - simply resolved by crossing over yellow/green wires on the trackball harness wiring.

4. volume pot does not seem to make any affect on the volume

need to check my wiring harness hack for the coindoor - it causes constant beeping when connected!

i think i can now consider the project as finished!

looking pretty good i think

only outstanding issue is the monitor degaussing is not working. identified that the fuse has blown. hopefully after i replace it it will automatically degauss on startup.
