Its been a long time since I posted an update. Probably 2 months now! Yikes! Well, time flies when you're busy as hell :-)

I've been busy working on several software projects plus an array of other things. The first thing you should notice is that there is a new version of Cart Commander out! Check it out on the Software page.

My friends Ron Corcoran and Shane Monroe got me hooked on Blitz Basic which is a version of BASIC designed specificly for game development. I have spent the last month working on my remake/update of the classic Pengo game, and hope to have it done within the next few weeks. If you're into game development, you need to check it out! I highly recommend it.

My Bosoconian has a Power Supply problem, which is game #3 for me that has a power supply problem (Defender, and Robotron are the other two). I'll have to look for a repair kit or replacement power board for Bosconian. Anyone have one?

Picked up a Make Trax a couple weeks ago, has a board problem which I am trying to track down. When started, the character always goes "UP" and won't go in any other direction. Thought it was the buffer chip at 8E, but I replaced that and it still has the same problem. Time to take a peek at the schematics again.

I've been trying to find time to update my site, but its in really short supply at the moment. The other issue is that I haven't updated my Edit Software to use SQL server on my site yet so I'm doing all updates to the database by hand currently. So the first step is going to be to update that software. Once done with that, I should be updating more frequently again.

Added a new link for a Star Wars Restoration. If you like Star Wars check out this site!

The Killer Instinct Project has a new URL! The link has been updated.

Ward Shrake sent me an updated version of the Bent Pins Tips & Trick, and its been posted! Excellent document! A must read for all you Techies :-)

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
