Ok, it happened! I reached my Limit of Project games :-) I just picked up two empty cabinets and two games today. Thanks to John Butler for selling them to me. Or should I thank him? :-) I just converted my 2 car garage into a 1 car garage! Maybe I should go to an AA meeting (Arcade-aholics Anonymous) but I think its too late for that! I'd like to thank my friend Jerry for helping me (he has a Truck) get these games. The Thief is in pretty good shape but has monitor problems. I will have to work on fixing that. The cabinet is in decent shape, but I don't know if the game works or not yet. John says it does, so I'll go on his word at this time. The Gorf doesn't currently have a monitor since John didn't know I wanted the Gorf when I showed up. He was fixing it at the time so he will be dropping it off in the future. The cabinet is going to need a fresh coat of paint, but other than that its in pretty good shape. My first Cabaret! Ok, its just the cabinet, but the cabinet is in pretty good shape. It has Zaxxon art on one side, and Super Zaxxon on the other. Looks like I'm going to have to put both games in it! :-) Its also missing the control panel. The Crystal Castles is painted all Black, I'll have to see if it has Side Art under the paint. If it does, I'll see if I can recover it. If not, well maybe I can just make it a Vertical JAMMA cabinet. I could then recover the Dig Dug since the art work is showing on it and in fair condition. Decisions, Decision :-) I am currently looking for someone with Artistic talents in Phoenix who can help me do the Side Art on my Stargate, Robotron, etc... If you live in the Phoenix area (Glendale is where I live) and would like to help me, please send me an Email at bking@arcaderestoration.com. Thanks!

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
