I've had a Force II sitting on the back burner for years...Long enough I don't even remember where I bought it from or how much I paid for it! I was always waiting on finding a replacement backglass, as both the ones I have are in very poor condition. Until today I had never even plugged it in. I told myself, I'll just plug it in and see if it boots. Well the CPU boots but lots of issues that prevent play. First thing I wanted was to tackle the GI circuit it was out on the PF. Turns out there is a short somewhere. So i start my removing all the plastics to get to the bulbs/sockets.
2 hours later I have a mostly bare playfield and wonder what the hell did I get myself into? What is with this hobby??
ps - BG Resto has the artwork now for this machine.
Force II is a very underrated game. Lots of fun.
