I was on my way home last night from work, and I decided to stop by a Thrift store that I visit occasionally looking for Atari 2600 carts, Vic-20 Carts, etc...

I walked in the door was looking around and spotted something that looked familiar. I took a second look and it was a Robotron! I walked over to it and it had a sign on it. "Yes this is for sale". I thought, nope, its not for sale anymore because I'm buying it!. $200 later, I walked out with a Working, Complete Robotron!

The sides are a little scuffed and could use a new paint job, but the cabinet is in excellent shape, all the side art is there. The Monitor Galss is probably a 7+. The Marquee is probably an 8. The control panel has a couple cigaret burns, but I have a replacement for that. I also have a replacement Marquee (which is a 10).

The game is all Original. Original Power Supply, everything. The game had a RAM error, but I swapped CPU boards and thats all better now. I will take the time to fix that board later.

The game is getting cleaned up and put in the gameroom this weekend.

Many thanks to Shawn for helping me get it home! He also brought over a spare Tron PS to test my friend's Tron with. Yep, its the Power Supply! So now I can finish fixing the game. Glad it was only the power supply :-)

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
