Hi all,

As some may know a long time collector has passed away. I had dealt with Pete a few times and he was something else! Never wanted cash up front only if you wanted it post the cash back! That's the trust he had in the hobby. Anyway Vic found out he had passed away and a few UKVAC people made a trip up to see what was there to help the family and keep the cabs in collectors hands...

A great write up is here by Tony which can fill in the whole background behind it all...

http://arcadeblogger.com/2016/08/06/pete-davies-the-invadar-arcade-collection/" rel="nofollow - https://arcadeblogger.com/2016/08/06/pete-davies-the-invadar-arcade-collection/

I was lucky enough to get one of the cabs... It's nothing special but I will get it running and in a local pub so people can play it which I think Pete would approve of.

Many of you may have read the blog above, and although possibly classed as a raid, most cabs disappear from view usually. I'm hoping other guys that got stuff will add to this thread as and when the cabs arrive all across the UK. I'm collecting mine on Wednesday and tbh will be a boring resto but there should be some good ones.

So let's all carry on and show they weren't wasted staying in the community and do Pete proud...

I'll add my update on Weds and I hope everyone else will too when they can Thumbs Up

I'd like to end with again sending my condolences to Pete's family and also say well done to the guys that went up and sorted it all... It shows what a great community this can be ClapHug

Now lets get the pics videos etc up and running!!! I'll post again when I pick up the cocktail cab.

The cabs will also all be marked up to show where they came from.

- Ben

I'll start us off then Smile

My cabs from Pete's collection are as follows:

Taito Field Goal Cocktail. Up and running with a game board fault. The plan for this one is to give it a general tidy all over, the main item that need attention are the legs, they either need painting or re-chroming. The original PSU has been replaced, the wiring is a bit hacked so I will tidy that up when the time comes. Nice cab with minor work needed to fix.


Next up for me are some Super Breakout cocktail cabs. Apart from game boards, top glass & monitors, these are pretty much complete. There's just lots of mould and dirt that needs cleaning out. I'm going to make my own resto thread for one of these as i expect it will take some time to fix this lot up and there's lots to do! I will put some 'finished' photos in this thread when the time comes.

One of the more unusual (and in my view, interesting) items of Pete's collection that I was fortunate enough to be offered, is this Universal board tester, so I thought with it being a rare item to do a short write-up about it.



It's a genuine Universal part, with manufacturer plate and serial number #1006 (I guess that means number 6) on the back panel.

It's in remarkably good condition, and it weighs a ton (you'll learn why soon...).  First some more photos.

Side panel showing built-in speaker



Other side showing fan vent



And rear of unit



So time to lift the bonnet on it and see what's inside.



So lifting the hinged lid (with thumb slot at the front to make lifting even easier!) you can begin to see the reason it's so heavy.  3 large transformers in there which make up the bulk of the weight.  And considering all they're doing is providing 240/110 isolation, plus +5V/+12V/-5V supplies, most of that nowadays could fit into a small and light SMPS.

It was about this time I realised we don't have Universal's version of Atari's Cat Box, but something a LOT simpler.

Taking the front panel off you can begin to see what's in there.



One large power supply (manufactured by Condor) at the base, supplying the regulated +5/+12/-5V supplies for the board logic.  Above that are 2 other transformers providing the other voltages, including isolation for the monitor supply.

To the left you can see the speaker, then to the right the fan.

 

There's even a coin counter (made in Enfield!), and a small audio amplifier board for the sound

You can also now see the inside of the front panel with a multitude of controls



A couple of leaf switches, a joystick (Wico copy by the look of it), various other buttons (you can see what they are all for from the front of the machine photo) and a multi-connector wafer switch to choose between player 1 and player 2.

It currently has a US mains plug, and is jumpered for 120V (nicely done on the back panel after the isolation but it still means unshielded mains voltage will be present, so I'll look to get a cover for that), so I've not powered it up yet, but there isn't much to go wrong with it so hopefully it won't go bang.



I also want to try to find a replacement lamp cover, as it looks like this one has melted...



Finally, it looks like the only hacked part of the tester is where the game board connects, and it looks like it's been done to make connection of the board easier.  Not sure what I'm going to do with this connector just yet but may make something that will work with multiple boards from different manufacturers (so it will end up being a Universal universal tester LOL)



So whilst it's not as technical a unit as Atari's (or some others out there), I think it's a lovely bit of kit and has a real charm to it.

Good stuff. Really nice to see some closeups of the kit.

I'll enjoy reading the restoration threads!

Who got the Afterburner? Just interested as I've been tinkering with mine lately. New baby and summer outdoor gardening jobs have put a temporary halt to the work on it in the last month though!

Well as so many other people have done so much to ensure Pete's collection went to the right place, as my contribution to it I'm happy to take a look at (free of charge) any of the Universal boards that people got.  It was one of the things I said when I was offered the tester.

I was just kidding Phil but a nice gesture, I have 3 universal boards but need to test them properly, I also got a table to go with themSmile

A day late but on Wednesday I picked up my cab from the lot collected..

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160810-WA0006_zpsgofhjtof.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Fits easily in the boot of my C-max Smile

Back home in the back garden to take a look at it...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0158_zps580nqjgx.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

No keys with it so bits to unlock... The coin box and there was one lock to get into it...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0159_zps5th5kupl.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Used a mini grinder to take the padlock off and took off the other coin box lock when it was removed.

After drilling out the main lock I was in!

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160810-WA0009_zpspdasmunm.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Pacman pcb inside as a bonus!

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160810-WA0011_zps9ythyu4s.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Overall pretty clean inside and damp and mould free...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160810-WA0015_zpsnxply4id.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

After checking connections, wires, etc It was time to plug it in... The monitor has static on it but couldn't see a picture and the sounds seem a bit off. Also player one fire button seems to be a credit button.

UPDATE 13/08/2016

I have looked at the wiring and as it had a pacman pcb in it the player one fire button (1) added a credit and as it had a pacman pcb in it obviously no fire buttons were needed. The pacman pcb has a link to a smaller 38 pin connector and through some tracing with a multimeter the fire button had been re routed to the credit switch from the original (guess) wiring to the pacman pcb with the connector and wires etc inside it already. I may have read the pinout wrong I found online but the power and video match up but player one and two seem to be the wrong way round and at a 90 degree angle... All would've been clearer as I was going to try a jamma pcb so cut a fingerboard to match then realised I didn't have any jamma connectors.. Only 44 and 36 pin ones EmbarrassedCry

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160813-WA0021_zpsvg1wtfgv.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Oh and fingerboard already cut Smile

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0163_zpsbia7jym9.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Anyway the original (I think Konami Classic) pinout hasn't been butchered just going to the pacman pcb....

UPDATE 18/08/2016

Still waiting on the jamma connector. Can't find my 60-1 but done a few things...

Whilst waiting for the connector the locks turned up Smile all keyed the same and only £12 off ebay for 5 Thumbs Up

Also one of the closing latches was missing a part so a quick trip to a local metal works and £2 later...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160816-WA0004_zps6usdoux9.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Me being a nugget made the latch hole the wrong direction but I'll sort that hopefully tomorrow... Anyway onto the locks...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0179_zpstnn6pqjz.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

and all in place Smile

Next the chrome plated legs.... I'm not sure what to do with them as I don't really want to spray them black and as its going in a pub don't want to spend money on rechroming them so sanded down with tin foil (great tip from Alex/Chuckie Egg) they're currently just going to stay as is...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0180_zpstag84agl.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Then onto the coin mech.. It doesn't seem to work atm but says 20p on the glass but the mech says 10p. Either way it rejects all coins so need to sort something out if anyone has any ideas? I'll probably just put a wanted up asking for a working one.

UPDATE 28/08/2016

I've done some more Smile

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0197_zpshwjzzrfz.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Started making the adapter when there was a knock at the door...

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0199_zpsb00defh6.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Took less than a week to arrive from foreign shores!

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0201_zpso1q07bpz.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Couldn't get the monitor to sync so raised the monitor up a bit, located the pots and began to mess with them...

Moe had given Riley a pack of fun snaps to play with and I nearly sh*t myself as he threw them all on the ground at once LOL

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160828-WA0024_zpsfoxbfniy.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/IMG-20160828-WA0027_zpsb26ylcyv.jpeg.html" rel="nofollow">

Anyway, after a lot of swearing and one electric shock.... We have a picture Smile

Onto testing the controls.... All worked fine except the diagram I used has the firebuttons the wrong way round but that's an easy fix... So it was time for some play testing Big smile

http://s13.photobucket.com/user/kiper/media/Peteinvadercocktail/DSC_0218_zpsh1xxg1ww.jpg.html" rel="nofollow">

Things to do...

Make an adapter to convert pacman to jamma so I can test another pcb (most likely a 60-1) DONE
Correct the wiring PRETTY MUCH SORTED
Sort out the monitor if it needs it WORKS FINE!
New locks DONE
Spit and polish
Tidy the legs SORT OF DONE!!
Put it in my friend's pub for everyone to play.

I did say earlier mine wouldn't be that exciting lol and it won't be LOL

I had the chance to fire up my Sega Super Masters Gold cab today. It's Sega System24 and the game ROM loads from a floppy disk drive. It looks like the disk I have is corrupt as it fails with a disk read error. 

The cab is a similar size to all the other Sega Midi cabs. Good news is that the medium resolution monitor works, and it appears everything else within the cab seems to be it pretty good condition.

Really good to see you all getting stuck into these machines.

I haven't even seen mine yet, it'll be next week before I get anywhere near them.

I'm hoping to tear into the ISIS Jamma cab first as it should be the easiest to resurrect - i'm planning on making it into my usual favourite type of vertical orientation single player ambidextrous controls - probably initially being a Scramble cab as I don't have one of those and I think it'll go well at shows.

After that i'll have a look at Field Goal, then Super Breakout (Dan, i'll get the Owl door off shortly for you), and then finally Cosmic Guerrilla.

I only bought a single game, Lupin III. It suffered with some white mould both on the outside and on the inside to my horror when I opened it up.

I didn't take a picture but the worst bit was the roof - looking inside and up the mould was the worst there.

Face mask*, outdoors (so spores aren't unleashed indoors), carefully scrape off the excess and then use vinegar. It'll stink, but not keen on anything with bleach in it.

*I had a sore throat for a couple of days after I cleaned some that may/may not have been related.

Right here is one of mine! Taito colour cocktail, looks like a booty pacman conversion? as you can see it has some white stuff going on!






Bot on the outside it don't look too bad. miss match of control panels and sticks! I guess this might have been a Space Invaders? can it be known from the serial number?













A close look at the game board and Pete  done some work here!




Right I did power this up and it briefly displayed an image before the screen shut down? maybe some kind of protection thing? Anyway I clearly left it on too long and a capacitor violently vented! nearly sh*t myself lol, it was C80 a 10uf 160v electro, on it's way out it took with it VR6 pot and C82 ceramic disc! It's the Toei CM-R14 chassis. I hope it's not fatal and a re cap will fix it!








After a quick clean out this morning mainly to remove the white stuff, not sure where to go yet with this table? more to follow..






Managed to get hold of a polo screen so rigged it up to the table to see what we were getting, and hey presto game fully works! just waiting on some caps for it's own monitor

First of mine I've looked over is the Moonwalker MVS cab. Must have been running Moonwalker before it was given a 1-slot and Metal Slug, which was still in there.

Actually quite glad the back door was missing off this one as it means it's not full of mould in the back - the marquee area is full of it though, and you can just see it forming around the central wood of the cab and around the monitor. Won't take much to clean that up though, it's solid and has been in the fresh air for 2 days drying out properly.



On closer examination the original cpo and side art aren't actually Moonwalker at all...


You can see Scooter in the middle - so looks like this at one point (probably from new) this was actually a dedicated Alien Storm, which is super rare. Here's the side art


The only picture of an Alien Storm cab that I can find anywhere is on the flyer, there's talk about it on klov but nobody has seen one. Here's the flyer picture where the side art and cpo are a match.



I'm guessing it probably started life as Alien Storm, didn't do well so they changed it out for Moonwalker which would have been a very easy swap as it's an identical cab with the same control layout and just a pcb/marquee swap. Then later in its life an mvs stuck in there.

It was nice to see the Moonwalker marquee was in perfect condition when it was flipped over.


Inside looks to be all original, there's what looks to be a factory Model 1 to jamma adapter inside.


It would be nice to consider putting it back to Alien Storm, but there's too much missing to do that, the character art from the cpo is completely gone, the marquee is gone, the bezel and instruction decal is gone and there's no pcb so it's really not an option as the only source for the art is the flyer and what little is left on this cab. So what I'm going to do is scan everything that's left on here so it's all preserved, and then fully restore it to a Moonwalker - which it clearly was before the MVS was put in there. I have all the art and a pcb for it so should be able to make a decent job of it.

There's an Alien Storm bezel on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alien-Storm-Sega-Damaged-Arcade-Monitor-Bezel-Shroud-2133-/282127908242?" rel="nofollow - here  if you haven't seen it - there's a closeup of the decal which you could possibly <cough> misappropriate.

Thanks, yeah I saw that one. It looks like it's from a conversion kit as the bezel decal in the flyer has a more interesting design that that plain blue line. The decal is the same though.

I can't imagine I'll ever find a complete cpo for it to work from, so I'll just save what I can from it.

It's not often you see them Moonwalker cabs.  Can't wait to see it restored to its former glory. Brings back memories of clearing it back in the day down the bowling alley. :)

Had a mooch inside and sadly its got no PCB.

Did anyone else rescue a Field Goal PCB that might have belonged to this or got one spare?

After de-moulding the Best Japanese Super Breakout cocktail and letting it dry at room temp, I today had a go at firing the game up.

PCB fault, but monitor looks good, as do the gel overlays. This is nothing I can't get running again. I think this may turn into my favourite cab it is very cool!

Great stuff Smarty - glad that's come up OK. I really liked the look of those Breakout cocktails. The fault deosn't look terminal to me. (But then what do I know!).

I've been fiddling with the Battlezone today, I'll start a thread at some point. Cleaned up and tested the G05 in my Asteroids this afternoon and its got partial collapse - the top half of the screen displays as a straight line across the middle. Not too serious from what I can gather.

No idea if the board works, as it was pulled from a shelf I think and didn't look very well protected.

Plan is to clean the cab up, strip it down, do a light restore and get it into the gamesroom and out of the garage.

The battle to get my System 24 game running has been in the background for a few weeks now. Today I got the game running. I purchased an HxC floppy disk replacement device and my disk was unreadable, this is the only option from my understanding if you cannot access an original disk.

Some of the tech I completed today is documented below
...........................................

Sega System 24 boards were included in Sega's copy protection measures, this included a custom 68000 CPU that included a battery and some RAM which I believe stores code which is needed for the game to run. If the battery goes flat, (they're generally over 20 years old now) the game will not run. Certain games have had the game code 'cracked' to enable the use of a regular 68000 CPU by having to use re-programmed CPU ROMs. This is not possible with System 24 games so I needed to take some action to maximise the chance of my Golf Masters game working for the longest period of time possible.

Below, the Custom Sega IC

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_nESUlgt230/V8McXIzzitI/AAAAAAAADFg/7m5W28QoezgAWpATjmcMpu6urCCr95WKwCLcB/s1600/IMG_3152.JPG" rel="nofollow">

Old battery removed, with a new replacement in place... NOTE: You need to keep a battery connected at all time by wiring the new battery in parallel and then cutting the old battery out of circuit. This will ensure you don't end up with a IC that's only use will be disposing of in the bin!

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-vi1vVSC8rgc/V8McTUkMewI/AAAAAAAADFU/ep-jHjQ4WJ8KzQMWYyccyIEHZic5N_8bwCLcB/s1600/IMG_3159.JPG" rel="nofollow">

The Original battery was date stamped 1989 and had started to corrode so I think my timing was right with this one. The battery still measured 3 volts dc with a multi meter, the new battery was sitting at 3.25 volts.

Once the CPU was put back into the game PCB it was still working which for now is a good sign :)

Bookkeeping info from the game, closing in on 7000 credits since the info was last reset with the game being played for 305 hours.

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-RawkWF5QkN8/V8McTVJJS9I/AAAAAAAADFQ/2qsmiN36nzQh5cyvn_aSTUBMlZwRrvkpACLcB/s1600/IMG_3162.JPG" rel="nofollow">

The next part of this story will cover how I used a floppy disk drive replacement device to replace the old Floppy drive and disk that were not working when I picked the cab up.

Alex picked up some of Pete's Nintendo Vs PCB's for me and I started looking at them this weekend

Both boards were dead on one side on initial power up

I started looking at the first one and could see some weird issues on the cpu, ppu, and roms.  All of which pointed to a fault with the ram.  I desoldered the ram and it had failed.  Put a new ram in and the faulty side started booting, with corrupt graphics.  Started looking at the logic, and spotted pins on 4A (an LS32) stuck high.  Piggy backed the LS32 and bingo.  PCB was working.  So desoldered the chip and replaced.

Second one had me baffled for a while.  I couldn't see any issues with the logic, but the game had either corrupt graphics or was dead.  Started scratching some of the socket pins, particularly the CPU and PPU sockets, and game was looking better.  Turned out to be a bad PPU socket

So two of Pete's PCBs back from the dead Thumbs Up

I've been working on the Subelectro Isis cab today, after sourcing a nice hanty 14" monitor for it (Thanks Tony)

It's looking (and playing) pretty sweet so far. I have been put back a bit, as I stripped one side of the t molding to find out that this stuff uses the thicker barb (and I just went and bought 100ft of the normal stuff)  - so I popped it back on for now.

Pictures and a bit of a write up, probably Monday (I have a day off for more tinkering) LOL

Not done anything with it as yet other than open it up check its not all fallen out and then switched it on
Sounds like the monitor is building up static but there's no picture and there's a high pitched squeel from something in the cab.

Looking forward to working on this one

I've been able to spend some time with Cosmic Alien and managed to get it booting up  :)
although the picture is very shaky and I'm not too sure the sound is right, the Pot that handles the background sounds has disintegrated!! Does this sound right to those that have this game?



It also looks like the monitor was replaced at some point of its life, as it's no longer running from the isolation transformer but live from the main power in, so even with the door open and the  door switch open, the monitor is always live!

the monitor in there is a microvitec LCCD03 but I wasn't able to find a Vertical hold adjustment to steady the picture, I'm sure it's just a simple tweak



I'm also a little dubious about the Power supply, not so easy to see in this pic the caps look a little bulged. is it worth re capping if possible or replacing with a modern switcher?



So far I'm really enjoying getting this going, even if the game is nearly as old as me LOL

A quick post before I set off for Revival...

I'm sure this cab was already a conversion (Another Sys24 game) from something else before SMGolf due to the wiring loom having lots of other connectors available but all being tied up.

After lots of work the Super Masters Golf has now been converted to Crack Down, still a System 24 game but possibly something that will get played a little more. Tongue

Thanks to Muddy for doing the CP/Marquee design and Sys24 sticker.
Thanks to Vic for cutting the Control panel metalwork.
Thanks for Dj_yt for selling me the gameboard. Sold as untested but it did actually work when hooked up. Thumbs Up

MOST WANTED CABS:

Unfortunately the marble madness can I got from the raid is still in storage trying to dry out. Pretty sure the cab is not salvageable as too far gone. I have transplanted the game pcb and control panel to another cab so the game still lives.

As regards the Jamma cabs they all have faulty monitors which need to be sent off for repair.

Always looking for a bargain.

I got the taito asteroids table and the Taito Zun Zun block.

Since receiving the Asteroids it I have managed to locate a very rough Taito asteroids PCB. Next step is to start working on the PCB.

The Zun zun is even worse.  I need to try and find a Bezel for it as it has an aftermarket Galaxian conversion bezel.  If anyone can help me locate one that would be awesome.

The little Isis jamma cab is fully restored with a new monitor and some cosmetic work I did to it.
It houses Scramble and Time Pilot at the moment with a jamma switcher and I play it most days.

The Battlezone cabaret I got hasn't had much work done on it. The pcbs obviously didn't work and Phil Murray has those to fix when he gets some time. I have made a back door for it and tested the monitor. It does partially work but needs so e attention to get it working properly. I would really like to have this playable - but it needs some time yet.

I got a little jamma which is all cleaned up beautifully and running a multigame setup, The Moonwalker is actually an exceptionally rare Alien Storm cab, which incredibly I managed to find the original marquee and missing cpo artwork for. The monitor is fixed, and I've just repaired the damaged monitor and control panel mountings and started vectoring all the artwork from it.
