This week has been a good weekend so far! I completed my Stargate Wiring harness (see the Stargate restoration page), I got my Donkey Kong Jr. board set! I got the new Front Glass for Thief which is now for sale. If you are interested, let me know, otherwise I might have to eBay it, and I would rather not do that if someone else wants to give it a new home. Work has progressed on my Metrocross cabinet (but its slowed down), I now have the top of the cabinet stripped and sanded as well as 95% of the back. I will probably finish stripping it next weekend and hopefully start painting it then too. I had planned on plotting the Left side of the Stargate side art out this weekend, but the places I took it to couldn't read the AutoCAD format, so I will have to create a "Plot File" (once I figure out how to ) The Mr Do PCB has some sound problems that I will have to work on. I plan on converting the VS System into Donkey Kong Jr, I have a Marquee on the way for that. My Test Rig is shaping up! I now have more parts for it so I can easily hook up other games other than JAMMA games. Right now it works for JAMMA only, but that will be changing probably in the next few weeks. I haven't heard from anyone out there concerning their test rigs... I know someone has to have one too... The Popeye Parts have been sold, this will help fund the restoration of my other games. I ordered a BOAT LOAD of parts from Bob Roberts, those should be here this week. I don't think enough can be said about Bob. He is one helluva guy. Always willing to help out and has all the cool parts! I added a link direct to his web page on the home page. If you are looking for something, you can't go wrong with him! The only bad thing about this last couple of weeks is that my Smash TV PCB comes up with a BAD Custom CPU (U99). I'm a little annoyed at this since it was supposed to be working when I bought it. Hopefully I can get it fixed for a minimal cost. I am going to be updating the Arcade Game Tracker soon (Don't know when, been busy doing other things ). I'll let you know when its available. I added a new Link as well, its for Wolf's Classic Arcade Gameroom. Another Excellent site for restorations! The site looks great and is packed with tons information. Be sure to visit!

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
