Hi, I found an original Attila the Hun Parts Catalog, 2 Field Service Bulletins, and pages explainging the game options and accounting functions.

If you would like these, I would be happy to mail them to you for $5 to cover the large envelope & postage.

Send me a pm with your name & mailing address and I will reply with my paypal email address. Thanks! Jim

I finished up Sharp Shooter II this afternoon and got some solid game playing time in!

First the display issues: With them all pulled out I tested the transistors on all 5 display boards and they all tested good. Moved on to the 74LS379's and compared some readings to the working Old Coney Island displays and they were different, so I gave it a shot and replaced the 74LS379 on one of them and everything was working perfect in game and test mode. I ended up replacing that same chip on all 5 displays (adding a socket obviously) to fix all 5 of the faulty displays. I've got no idea what happened to this thing before I had it that would have taken out that chip on all 5 displays, but its all good now!

Here is the break down on the display issues in case someone has something similar happening:

Player 1 display - all digits out and shows nothing, replaced 74LS379
Player 2 display - all digits out and caused mpu to not boot fully, replaced 74LS379
Player 3 display - only showed 1's on all digits all the time, replaced 74LS379
Player 4 display - only showed 4's on all digits all the time, replaced 74LS379
ball/credit display - only showed 0's on all digits all the time, replaced 74LS379

After installing a new ball, rubbers, lights, doing some switch cleaning and adjustments, and cleaning up the drop target bank so it resets properly, we are good to go!

Another project done..... on to the next.

Where is the cheapest place to get the 11000uf caps for the power supply? I checked a few places and they were around $30 for the screw terminal style. Also, is there any reason you can't splice on a radial lead variety? They appear to be much cheaper.

I thought you all might get a kick out of this. Here's an original invoice direct from Gameplan when my family's former Hi-Fi business bought parts for it back in 1987. That battery also was likely the same one that exploded causing me to buy an Echo Lake MPU about 20 years later.

Hi All -

I want to purchase some colored star posts for my Andromeda. Can someone link me the correct post/size? In the parts catalog, it doesn't specify what type of posts they are. Would the Titan colored posts work? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone sell new spinners that are Game Plan compatible? I ordered replacements from PBR and the arms are bent in the wrong place. Yes, I went through the lots trouble making those replacement spinners for my Cyclopes and didn't pay attention to fitment first...I tried bending the arms flat and forming them to the right curvature. That resulted in breaking the arm.

Anyone have some Cyclopes pop bumper caps for sale? Need one but would buy more for backups. Thanks!

I don't. However, I got plain caps from Pinball Resource and made some. I found a pretty close paint match, off the shelf. I printed out new decals which can be found here- https://www.ipdb.org/files/619/Game_Plan_1985_Cyclopes_Bumper_Cap_Scans.jpg
