Updated Test Setup

April 3rd, 2013 by FRaNKy

500-newtestsetup

With some shelf-space cleared it was time to build a permanent JAMMA test-setup.  The hardest part was finding an old TV that would let me select the SCART A/V input without the remote but once we had that it was pretty straightforward.  Okay going paracommando style over the floor to plug in the powercable does not count, I admit there is too much crap in front of the powerplug over there so that should be cleaned up.. Later..

But hey.  Decent testing rig, good workbench and we can actually sit down and play some games as well.  Testing here are the last carts from that operator haul.  11 in all and now we have the entire kit and kaboodle.  Yes again 3 times Tecmo World Soccer 96 and 2 Goal Goal Goal’s.  What the world has with soccer games, I don’t get it.

March MVS Operator Haul

March 14th, 2013 by FRaNKy

When you think that you have fished the pond empty, another former operator – actually kinda just around the corner – popped up online with some carts for sale.  Some ended up to close to 80 of them so we bought the entire kit and kaboodle.

500-marchmvs

We have to transfer the carts in 2 runs.  This is about 70% of the content.  2 crates of carts, 1 crate of kits and 5 boards in both 2-slot and 4-slot configuration.

500-qtips

About half the carts worked right away.  The other half had to be cleaned and damn were they dirty.  Each cotton swab was used once on a single cartridge just to give you an idea how dirty these thing can get.

500-marchmvstesting

So we had some testing and counting of carts to do.  Most of the carts worked as did 2 of the 4-slots.  The rest we will clean once more and retest later.  But for now we have a huge stash of carts again that should last us till the end of the year.

MVS Salvaging

March 2nd, 2013 by FRaNKy

500-mvsrepairs

So how was your day ?  Splendid you say ? We got this batch of old and beaten up and rusty and totally YUCK MVS boards (really, like shit had died on them) in France today and tried to get them to work.  the 6 slot was dead, 2 of the 4 slots as well.  2 other 4 slots kinda came to life but died during the day.  cleaning and re-soldering obvious components didn’t help – just too much corrosion all over the effing place.
