Welp....


SHE LIVES!!!!!!!!









TO DO:

(a) Adjust the WICO leafs a bit more... tweaking them is a bit of a pain in the ass...I still need to work on the right side stick mostly.

(b) Either the bulb or starter is bad in the marquee.  From the look of the bulb,  I'll start there (though I'll pick up some extra starters too)

(c) Marquee... just waiting for it...

(d) Side Art... it's being re-printed


That is about it I do believe... she's coming along nicely.

Oh,  and I managed to sell my Galaga yesterday too!   NICE!  That means I only have A.P.B. and WAR: Final Assault officially "on the block".   I am SO trying to hold back the urge to pick up the Battlezone that's local.   One more gone and I can get it.

I almost forgot.  I also need to install a new monitor.  I happen to have a Vision Pro here in the garage waiting for my Pole Position project,   but it's in a UNIVERSAL frame.  I need a shelf mount frame.   I am considering just buying a new VP in the shelf mount frame instead of dicking around trying to mount the universal frame (or moving the VP to the G07 frame in it currently.  Thoughts?

EDIT: I also am looking for 4" WICO shafts with red balls (sounds vaguely dirty, eh?).

I think Tanman (guy who is doing the PhoenixArcade MWMS art work right now) had some 4" sticks a while back, but I dunno if he has them anymore (and I forgot to ask when I contacted him recently).

I've got the 4" shafts and am worried that they might be too high for comfortable Defender/Stargate play.  Until I get a CPO I'm running a temp panel that's not setup for those games, so I can't be sure.  I did play a real Robotron with 3.5" shafts and it felt fine, so I'm not sure what sticks I'll end up with.

Try user 'Gatordad' on KLOV for the 4" ones.

If you end up ditching the 4" sticks, let me know.

If you are going to order directly from Happs, they are out of stock on the shelf mounts until May.  Once their next shippment is done, they will not be getting any more.

Pretty soon all that will be left for CRTs is Nieman Displays (which at least makes great monitors).

So close... yet so far.

I'm getting burned by a vendor requiring me to dispute a credit card charge.   I still need artwork... and I need a bulb and/or starter.

Note the 4" Wico's now and it's a steel CP with proper silkscreened CPO.

Looks nice! What does the button directly below the 2nd joystick do? Seems like an odd place for a button, unless it's a player 1 button maybe?

Hyperspace for Defender/Stargate... so yes,  it's a 1 player-stick button.

Duh. Should have realized that given I have a Defender of my own (although I've never actually used that button!). Now I see the label for it, although it seems far enough away from the button that it makes me wonder why it was put on there at all.

Yeah, I didn't even see the label.  Too far away

But the overall control panel and game looks really good.  Nice work Frizz.

Absolutely. That wasn't meant to come across as a criticism - I know you didn't make the CPO yourself, Frizz, so I'll give you a pass on that one. ;)

Very cool thread!  I'm getting a bombed out Defender (cab-only) soon that I'm going to do something with.  Putting my Defender back to stock and moving all my experimental crap over to the bombed out one so that I don't feel bad about leaving a classic alone. :)
