I'm still here :-) I've just been VERY busy. Long hours at work and a few other projects that have been keeping me busy. I was going to start painting my Metrocross today, but after breaking up the Mr Do (Converted Frogger) cabinet, I was too tired and I wouldn't have enough time to get it done. I will save that for next weekend. If you want to see pictures of dead Mr Do cabinet, read "Section 2 - Game/Cab Identification" as this has been updated. I now have my Stargate Marquee, and a second one is on the way, I am going to be restoring two Stargates at the same time. I also will have two front glasses coming, one has the area where the instruction card is painted black, so I'm going to see about fixing that. I got my Robotron board set up and running! I will have to start working on the Side Art for that as well. I still have to finish the Stargate! Hope to make more progress today on that. I got another cabinet (thus the need to destroy the other cab to make room ). This one is a Joust cabinet. Painted all black as usual. It was converted to Rastan. The current monitor is a GO7 and its doing some REALLY FUNKY stuff right now. I'll have to work on fixing that. If you don't know me by now... well its another Restoration Project :-) It will be converted back to Joust. My Defender monitor is pissing me off :-). I leave it in the Cab and the screen is all Blue. Take it out and put it on my Test Bench, and it works great. Its obviously a tube that is going out and the flat surface is keeping the Blue gun from shorting out, however when its tipped back (i.e. installed in Defender), the Blue gun shorts out. Time to replace the tube. What a pain. The site has hit the 10,000 mark! Whoo Hoo! I would like to thank the countless number of people who have visited here, and who have sent me e-mail. It means a lot to me. If I haven't responded to your e-mail, please send it again, I have been very busy and may have missed it or haven't had time to get to it. The restoration guide has been updated and formatted to fit the new look of the site. Got my Metrocross PCB wired up and running! Just like I remember! Have no clue what Metrocross is? Visit http://joystick.virtualave.net/metrocross.html Ran into a new site called Retrocade, check it out at www.retroarcade.com

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
