SO I picked up a Bride of Pinbot last week after seeing it come up here in the afternoon. I called the guy, left an email, and called again. Got a couple pics of it, PF pretty rough and downright chewed up in a couple of spots, some inserts lifted, standard breakage on the Shuttle Ramp plastics near it. Flippers wouldn't work, game wouldn't run through diagnostics. It was short a ball but did boot up, ran slow. Loading the head for metamorphosis would just plain take a long time. Several lights out and when I can get through the light test some don't work and others flash multiple lights they should not flash.
Having just completed several repairs on my Bad Cats, shopping and repairing a Space Invaders to 100% operation from probably 85%, and working out the last kinks of a very hacked Rollergames (though it is Diamond Plate and the PF is in pretty good shape), all in just about 2 months, I think I'm ready to try and document some of this. For the time being my main goal is to get the game playing 100%, as clean as possible and then restore over time, unless a better one comes around I can afford, then I'll just get it clean and 100% functional. My long term goal is to do the P-ROC mod and likely use some of Dutch Pinball's software, but perhaps modify it as I'm not really into their music choices, etc.
Unfortunately I have already missed some photo opportunities to start with, but I'll try to get some as I go along. To begin with, I think I'll start with just the CPU as it obviously had battery damage and was never cleaned, neutralized, etc. It's kind of surprising it workes at all, though it isn't too bad. I happen to have on hand some lm339s, the ULN2803, and most likely all the resistors and possibly caps I need. I won't have a BOP manual for a few days so the CPU schematics are out of reach as they are not in the ipdb pdf. I would love if someone could do a good scan of the CPU schematic so I am sure of some of the values. I'm ordering the PPS repro manual from PBL tomorrow but would love to get this thing put back together tonight and tomorrow.
