Progress pics. I've decided to to do the backbox back and top in black instead of the purple. The back of the main cabinet was black so this makes sense to me. I guess I could have done the back of cabinet in purple so the two matched but I like the look of black. It can always be changed to the original color if I decide it needs to look more like the game originally came. Tumbled all the parts from inside the cabinet.

Thought about getting them but decided the original faces were good enough. Although I didn't realize the cpr faces came with the ball guides, had I known I probably would have got the faces from them. I got the plastics and mini playfield from cpr.

Any chance you remember what color you used to touch up the light blue on your playfield?

Custom color automotive paint that I mixed and eye matched.

More progress, the playfield is nearing completion. This game was missing the gate/switch for the entry on the heart ramp I'll have to find or make one of those. It was also missing the wire form for the ball redirect near the spinner. The mounting bracket for that was also broken, so something else I will have to find/repair/make.

Still a few things to do but a before and after pick of the populated playfield.

Is a snake's asshole close to the ground?

#263 8 months ago

Its come a long way and looks great. Any plans to replace the yellowed lane guides on the face or they staying as is?

They are staying as is for now. I don't want to take apart the face mech again at this point. I didn't know that new ones were available. Now that I do I will will get some and replace them in the future.

#265 8 months ago

Cleaned up the boards and reinstalled. New lock and backglass trim. This thing is getting very close to a point where I can turn it on and start to test everything and make the game function properly. New gates for the heart ramp and the pop bumper entrance/exit have been ordered so they should be here soon.

It's alive! First time I turned it on I had an issue with the 5 volts. So the only thing that came on when I turned it on was the modification to the game. Ha! The light up flipper buttons.

It took a little while and some help from friends but I was able to track down the issue with the 5 volts. The bridge rectifier was bad at BR2 so I replaced that, still nothing. The capacitor at C5 was suspect so I replaced that. Still nothing. The issue ended up being the trace between the the rectifier and capacitor so I ran a jumper and this resolved my issue. Now just need to test/adjust/repair everything to get this game playing properly.

Played my first game on it tonight. Put up 8.7 million. Took notes on things that need adjustment. The face is rotating and finding home properly but the eyes and mouth switches need to be adjusted, they are not registering properly. No sound but I assume that's just wiring as the speaker wires looked suspect.The lights on the left side of the helmet are not working. And the kickout to the shooter lane needs adjustment as it doesn't always feed the ball to the shooter lane smoothly and sometimes requires a few attempts to get it there. But considering I just got the game to boot yesterday I think the list of things to do to get the game playing correctly is fairly small. I should be able to get this playing good soonish.

Wow. Amazing job. Thanks for posting the progress for us to follow!!

#275 8 months ago

Re-flowing solder joints on a few of the boards mounted to the bottom of the playfield resolved some issues. Switches on face mech adjusted and registering correctly. Sound issue was easy, just fixing bad wires and new connectors. Left side of helmet lighting was just a bad solder joint, fixed. Game is functioning near 100%, just needs more play testing. I put up 12 million tonight.

Where did you get the cabinet decals?

#280 7 months ago

I only found them available from two places. The place in Germany (which appeared to not have any of the Williams logos on them). And the eBay seller (which is classic arcades). These were the only two options I found that were available. I asked around but that never led me to any other options that were available. Given those two options I went with the classic arcades set because they were cheaper, shipping was cheaper and I wanted the Williams logos on my game.
