    No way, i didn't know there was one at the Santa Cruz boardwalk. I took a group of scouts there awhile back, must have been gone by then. I wonder how rusty it got being so close to the beach.

    Good luck on your search. Prices keep going up. Last few on Ebay were in the $3500+ range.

    Quoted from Brian541:

    That game has been on my wish list for a long time.Looking good!Played one on the santa cruz beach boardwalk years ago and got to see one again this last year in san francisco.Hope to own one someday for my arcade!

    Thanks! Agreed. Lots of rare games aren't fun but this one definitely is.

    Found out that the start button wasn't original (Atari volcano) so i tracked down the correct button.

    $11. Looks a lot better.

    Will get the original power supply back in a few days. Once thats installed this will be 100% done and have the option of using the original setup or the FPGA setup.

    #68 1 year ago

    two questions .... is that aluminum strip attached to the control panel or just loose?

    where did you find the start button?

    thanks

    #69 1 year ago

    Attached.

    question ..... what did you do for the accelerator pedal springs that look suspiciously like a screen door spring ? reuse the old ones or were you able to find a source for new ones - i looked all over the place and never found anything close to what i have as originals

    also, i installed a return spring on the shift levers to keep them pulled into the forward position - this works much better than the lockball thing originally used - found pictures of this mod some where on the webs and its a good thing

    Looks great. Classic game that upset the video industry with its theme.

    Quoted from PACMAN:

    The controls are super smooth. Plays like new.

    Bad ass.

    #74 1 year ago

    Wait, what?!?! A marine boat RV pushbutton switch? How the heck did you even find that???

    #75 1 year ago

    Used the original.

    Do you have pix of the mod you did for the shifter?

    Same way I find all this weird, rare crap. Luck. Oh and an exhaustive search of the internet

    if you look closely in these you can see the spring - zip tied to the shift lever & an eyescrew attached to the wooden control panel - these are to only ones i currently have of it since this was my back-up control panel & it was sold
