  • Peter Chou IMP-44-1040 or USP-11-150x Power Supply Rebuild

    I picked up a Neo Geo 4 slot at the request of a friend (lets call it a commission work, I guess?). It had a power supply in it that was rusty and dirty and loud as can be. It was this model: Now, you can just go get a replacement for this, and thats […]

  • Sun JVS Power Supply Rebuild

    So we use these Sun power supplies to power our naomis and whatnot, because they’re nice, usually pinned correctly, and have an adjustable 3.3v rail. Thats all well and good, and if you want them to last forever, you can recap them, just like you would anything else. I looked around at the internet, and […]

    Just got back from Ohio, where I picked up another Pump it Up machine, this time, for keeps!

  • 2/27 Arcade work!

    Laura and I started putting the decals on Mortal Combat, and they look GREAT if I’m honest. I ordered custom drilled plexi, and its not perfectly square, so thats an issue. The T-mold is also a little goofy on the control panel but that should turn out ~ok~.  Otherwise, America’s Army is working with mame, […]

  • 1/27 Arcade Work Update

    MvC2 WORKS! I need to repaint the control panel and figure out the size of bolts for candy panels… I’ve got a guy working on a marquee, I hope! CvS needs its pins crimped, but we’re almost there too! Mortal Bishi Bashi Kombat is a dream differed. I can’t get the software to install at […]
