Its been a quite month, well ok, quite on the Arcade side of things! I'm still recovering from last month and work has been the 50hour work weeks as we attempt to hit our deadline.

I added a review of Q*Bert art from Arcade Renovations. The best word I can think of to describe the art is "WOW". Take a look for yourself.

Ron, Shane, their daughters, and I went to Castles and Coasters here in Phoenix. Its the largest Arcade next to Game Works and they have a lot better selection of classics than Game Works. Like Game Works, however, they too have butchered the classics by putting them in generic cabinets. Mind you, its not as bad as what Game Works does, but its close.

The Donkey Kong there is HORRIBLE!. Its in a generic JAMMA cab and uses a BAT Micro-Switch joystick. The joystick is way out of alignment since every time you climb up a ladder, Mario wants to walk right as soon as you release the joystick. You spend more time fighting the controls then you do the game.

Robotron and Joust controls where also HORRIBLE! I had to come home and play mine. Its nice to go to these places and realize that even though the one you own isn't perfect, its still a hell of a lot better!

You've never played Ms. Pac until you've played it on a 25" monitor using a BAT Micro-Switch joystick. Ick!!

Broke the 100K mark on Metrocross the other day (108K+) and will be going for 200K shortly.

For those who have emailed me, please be paitient, I have about 180 emails to go through, I will try to respond as soon as I can.

Well, thats it for now...

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
