Can you actually slide this along the side of a cabinet and then stitch the artwork together?
I've thought about a scanner for artwork reproduction, but I would imagine that there is a bit of color correction to do before printing.

Thanks for sharing Ian. Your repair logs remind of the Pinball Ninja site, where I've probably learned more about troubleshooting than anywhere else.

Finally got my hands on a second Midway Vegas board. Have been trying to get my NBA Showtime /NFL Blitz cabinet going for the longest time. Actually picked the cabinet up for free, but have sunk hundreds into it (U5000 chassis rebuild, new power supply, PCB parts, etc). 20171206_115515.jpg 20171206_...

I attended Pincon 2017 and was really just a spectator.
For 2018, I'll happily bring a couple of machines and volunteer in any way that can help... (tournament, setup, basic tech stuff, etc)

Had a great time and totally looking forward to PinCon 2018

Re: Anyone have the G.I. pinout for a WMS Shadow handy?

I want to do some troubleshooting before I rip the entire board apart and rebuild the GI pins. Second question should I see the same voltage on every GI pin? I believe I should but I just want to make sure, if so how many volts? Hey man, pretty sure this is what you're looking for : http://mirror2....

Did my first tube swap yesterday. Was never happy with the monitor in my Killer Instinct cab. Found a suitable 25" donor tube from a 2002 Sharp TV. Horizontal/Vertical yoke readings were very close to those of a K7000, so I did the swap and kept the TV yoke in place (I know there are debates on...

Dave W: many thanks for offering that radio. It appears to be a 1929-1931 highboy broadcast receiver, unsure of the brand. Thanks Sylvain for the insight on the year it was made. My father was born in 1940 and remembers it being in his house throughout his childhood, but he had no idea when it was ...

Not the model you're looking for, but my father has a late 30's model in his garage. If you're ever interested, let me know. He'd love to see it go to someone who would appreciate it.

Good news for owners of Konami boads | Konami ‘052535’ reproduction

When custom Konami ICs failed, the only choice for most collectors was to harvest an equivalent chip from a donor board. This guy has basically reproduced a custom Konami chip and is working on doing the same with others like it. Great to see creative people keeping these original games alive! http:...

Can you converge a monitor without a test pattern generator? The blues and reds are off on my Donkey Kong.

Are there test pattern generators available locally?


I do it with just the color bars available on many games... not as accurate as the test pattern though.
