Its about time for another update :-)

(Imagine the music to "Soap" while reading this ). I traded Ron my Gorf for his Gorf which he traded to Al for a Ms. Pac. I then traded my Gorf, which was Ron's Gorf to Shawn for His Second Ms. Pac. I was going to trade Shawns Second Ms. Pac for Rons Ms. Pac so Ron would have a nicer one, however we didn't because the Ms. Pac I got had a few issues. Confused?

Ok, so... to make a long story even longer, I wound up trading my Gorf for a Ms Pac. I also picked up a Punch Out! (converted to a Play Choice 10) cabinet and am in the process of converting it back to Punch Out.

I will be running the NES DECA for Twin Galaxies, I decided to do the Poll the LOW TECH way :-) @EMAIL@ me with your list of 10 games that you would like to see in the DECA. I will total up all the requests (One Email only please) and post the results. Voting will end at the end of October, 2000 and the DECA will begin in November.

The DECA (Decathalon) consists of playing 10 games (as voted on by the public). The scores are then all added up and the person with the highest score wins.

For more information on previous DECA's and other DECA's going on for the Atari, Colleco and other platforms, visit Ron's site.

Restorations are going a bit slow right now, mostly due to the heat and lack of time. I will probably be working on my Joust this weekend in an attempt to get it closer to completion.

There is a review of the Donkey Kong High Score Kit on the Reviews Page as well.

BTW: Did I mention that I broke the 100K barrier? Yes, its true, I got past the Third Elevators 3 times now :-) My High score is now 121,800. My next goal will be to break the 200K mark.

Also thanks to Ron, I have set a new Record for me in Ms. PacMan (Fast Version, slow version is unbearable to play!!) of 158,000 (Forget the exact score). I am also shooting for 200K on this game.

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
 
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
