Its the last update for the Year! Ok, I added a couple of new links on the left! I finally answered all my email! I don't mind answering questions, but please be specific and to the point. "My Game doesn't work, please fix it" is not going to get you an answer. Also, "demands for help" get deleted. Also, I will not call anyone to help. I will attempt to help via email if I can, but that's it. If you're local, and I have time, I would be willing to help in person if I know I can help. Please keep your questions short as well, I would hate to have you write a 500 word email for my to only say "Sorry, I don't know". Good examples would be, "When I power up my Donkey Kong, I get a gabled screen, what could cause this?" Ok, now that I have that off my chest :-) I did a little more work on Popeye and it turns out that part of the PS was unplugged. Now it powers up but the screen shakes, there is some garbage on the screen and the self test shows garbage where there should be characters. I have a feeling that its just a bad EPROM so I am working on reading all the EPROMS and comparing them with the version from MAME. If they are bad, then I'll just burn a new EPROM and hopefully that will fix it. HAPPY NEW YEAR! (read this part at Midnight )

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
