HPR mini projects

Postby HPR Pinball » Sat Oct 21, 2017 11:36 pm

I would like to create this place for small projects collection :-)

First on the list, LV2000 upgrade for the deflection board from my vector game Star Wars.
It's a small board that replace the low voltage section for better reliability.
I lost the monitor a few weeks ago because of the usual failure of the low voltage section.
I decided to make this upgrade to fix this problem forever :)
Thanks to the arcade community, that dream arcade would never have happened without those dedicated people.

This is the lower left section in the pictures, you can see the burned resistor.

Inspiring!

Have to get this done on my Space Duel. Have had the LV2000 upgrade for years but still have picture. But slow monitor power-up and a bit shakey at times!

Another example of what happens when the pinball community contributes to the hobby.
Bought those fantastic Bally siderails from Chnillapoil a few weeks ago but they doesn't fit EBD84 because Bally
used bigger buttons and made the siderails holes bigger.
I brought the siderails to the shop where i work and enlarge them to the right dimension, Et Voilà !! :-)
Another mini project completed !!

ps: It's hard to understand why he doesn't sell tons of them, they look fantastic on the machine

Dragon's Lair to Space Ace conversion.
My great friend Elio loaned me his SA control panel and marquee.
On my side i bought an annonciator board from ebay and i already have in hand the SA laserdisc.

Swap the laserdisc inside the player, install the annonciator, swap the control panel and marquee and after a few tweaking of the control panel and switch cleaning, it work youhouuuu !! :-)

Star Wars pincushion corrector board.
Here's the short story.
Star Wars was manufactured with an amplifone monitor. Because of the curve of the monitor, there's a corrector
included in the monitor to compensate the curve. But because of the high failure of the amplifone monitor, operators changed them for the ealier K6100 vector monitor when amplifone failed. This monitor was used in game like Tempest but the correction for the curve of the monitor was included in the game boardset, not the monitor.

Star Wars + K6100 = no pincushion correction.
The great Clay Cowgill from multigame.com make a small board to make this correction. K6100 corrector board
It's not ''perfect'' but a lot better, geometry of the picture when playing look perfect :)

A really tiny project today. Bought original latest revision A3 roms for Space Ace. Tested and working great :-)
I'm not a fan of the ''enhanced'' version roms for SP and DL. I tried them for Dragon's Lair and the gameplay feel very linear, with the original roms the gameplay feel more various and challenging.

For your roms needs ask Steph. I bought many roms from him, he's THE man: info@hobbyroms.com

Petit mini-project qui me trotte dans la tête depuis longtemps.
Un peu comme pour Fathom j'ai remplacé les ''plastic protector'' que j'avais fait en acrylic pour du lexan et en plus
je voulais faire un style surélevé comme EBD que j'aime beaucoup, voilà le résultat :)
Enjoy !!

Pourtant le pourcentage de paiement pour un video poker est parfois excellent (>99%).

Small repair project !
Problème, 50% des lampes ''out'' sur RFM.
Il y a deux switch matrix sur la game, chacune avec une fuse. Switch matrix A fuse F111 et switch matrix B F112.
Switch matrix B fuse F112 saute en allumant la game.
Pour savoir si c'est une diode sur le driver board ou une lampe de shorter j'enlève le connecteur J106 pour les lampes.
Ca saute quand même en l'allumant.

En regardant le board je voit que la section a déjà été réparer ''a la botch'' comme ca arrive souvent.
Solution, remettre le système d'origine avec les bonne diodes.
Et voilà bingo la belle RFM a repris ses couleurs :)

ps: Il faut couper les bouts qui dépassent quand on change des pièces sur un board électronique, pas dur a comprendre :FP:

Nice job! Mine is still a DL but has a Dexter in it so I can play either. Apparently I can get the Merlin board changed by Sean Wood and it'll play DL 2 as well. I still have all the laser gear but am saving them from wear.

Pas de neige a faire aujourd'hui, it's time for a small project !!
Le mini project d'aujourd'hui est de réparer les scratchs et testé un laserdisc de Space Ace récemment acheté.
Je me cherchais un disque de spare depuis qques semaines et voici ce que la chasse aux aubaines a donner.

Il y encore de bon deal a faire avec le hobby, pour preuve ce laserdisc.
Les gens en demandent souvent entre 200-250$US et je l'ai eu a 63$ sur ebay.
Étiquette scrap et surface grafigné un peu mais rien qui ne peut s'améliorer.
L'étiquette est facile a faire et les grafignes s'enlève au novus.
Donc sabler le tout au 2000, ensuite novus 3 et novus 2 et vous avez un disc qui fonctionne parfaitement ;-)
Testé et certifié !!

Space Ace est une game ''much more'' complexe que Dragon's Lair et beaucoup plus rapide.
Une peu comme Stern Star Wars ca fonctionne avec des options ''choose your path'' que j'aime beaucoup.
3 options de départ: Cadet, Captain, Space Ace et ensuite durant toute la game il y a des paquets d'endroit ou vous pouvez jouer des scènes supplémentaire avec ''l'energizer'' et jouer en tant que le héros Ace pendant une courte période. La différence entre les 3 options de départ est qu'il y a plus de scènes avec Space Ace et Captain et aussi se rajoute les scènes mirroir pour mélanger le joueur encore plus :-)

Donc le plus ''facile'' et plus court est de jouer cadet avec seulement Dexter et le plus long et le plus complexe est de jouer toutes les scènes Ace avec l'option Space Ace au départ.

Wow... le papier sablé sur le disque, c'est nice.
Je savais que ça se fait mais entre "le savoir" pis "avoir le guts de le faire", y'a une différence.

Pas juste les LaserDiscs, ca peut surement reparrer des CD, des DVD et des jeux videos.
Il y a surement des employes de EBGames qui font ca a temps plein.
