Fixed the Power Supply for my Robotron so now I can take the Switcher out and put it back to 100% original. Another Get Well Kit from Bob Roberts did the trick along with re-soldering the connectors.

If you have a Williams game and are having intermittent problems with the game resetting, then it wouldn't hurt to get one of Bob's Get Well Kits and Re-solder the connectors.

Two more Williams games and everything should be up and running in my Williams row! I have a monitor problem with Stargate which goes out occasionally, have to determine if it's the monitor or a board problem. The other problem is with my Make Trax that when you bump the machine the video distorts. The Max Trax problem is probably something loose.

If you own a GameCube you may be interested in the News release that Twin Galaxies just put out.

Here is the news release from Twin Galaxies
News Release:

GameCube Players to Win listings in Official Video Game & Pinball Book of Records

GameCube superstars will have their chance to make it into Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records as five big summer contests are being conducted to find the best players on Resident Evil, Super Smash Brothers Melee, Wave Race Blue Storm, Super Monkey Ball and Simpson Road Rage.

Conducted as high-score contests, the summer long tournament invites players to submit videotapes of their best performances before the September 2, 2002 deadline. The top ten scores on each game will be featured in the next edition of the Book of Records which will be issued later this year.

"We wanted to make sure that the top GameCube players had a shot at getting into the Book of Records before the deadline on Monday, September 2nd," explains Walter Day, Chief Scorekeeper at the Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard, sponsor of the event and publisher of the Book of Records.

Twin Galaxies' Board of Scoreboard Editors and Referees are conducting the events under the adminstration of Robert Mruczek, of Brooklyn, NY, who is Twin Galaxies' Chief Referee. "We asked our board of referees to select contest games that they know like the back of their hands, so that the judging process would be completely accurate and free of error," says Mruczek, who, himself, will be judging a series of contests on the Dreamcast and N-64 platforms.

"The GC championships are expected to draw competitors from every part of the world," says GameCube Referee Matt Leto, of Ohio, who will be supervising most of the GC events. "The editors of the Book of Records delayed the record book for many months so we would have a chance to get these GameCube Champions into the forthcoming edition;" says Leto. "It wouldnt be the same without them."

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
