I just moved my multicade to my vacation house in anticipation of my new arrival. Snagged a "grail" game I have never seen in person. I'll post some photos if it gets here safely. It was on the top of my wish list and something I thought I would never get. More to come...

You have piqued my interest here. Any hints?

#3609 51 days ago

I have been working on a project Pooyan and have been looking all over for a 19" whole monitor with low to no burn to complete the whole thing. Anyone have one they would consider selling? It came with a Japanese chassis that looks pretty junked, a burn free tube, and no frame. That's why I am looking for the whole thing. Please PM me if you have something decent you might sell. Thanks.

Ok - we can play that game.

First clue: 1982 release date.

#3611 51 days ago

Anyone local looking to trade something? I have an ugly Arch Rivals and nice Crystal Castles (factory conversion in a Missile Command cabinet) available. Kind of open to anything but I would prefer 80's things I do not already own.

Has to be Black Widow since it's one of the best machines ever created.

Quoted from snyper2099:

Nope but that is a cool game.

Second clue: hard to spell

Tutankham? Xevious?

#3616 50 days ago

I can only think of Popeye that is blue, without cheating with the internet! Lol

We have a winner. Now it just needs to arrive safely.

Just threw up a recent quick walkthrough of the garage setup.

Quoted from Gumby510:

Super Jealous.... Wonka CE, Paperboy, and 720!!! Everything you got is cool, but those is what caught my eye. Man, 720 is such a fun arcade game.

Also, glad to see the repurpose Garage in NV!!! You crazy? How do you keep that cool during the summer?

Even with insulated door and 2x6 exterior walls you have a dedicated A/C?

Yes I run a mini split dedicated AC setup. Attic and garage doors are insulated. When I did the AC I also had them add another 20amp breaker to run everything safely.

It's in great shape and works 100%....

I'm super fired up to link it to my upright R.D.

I have a Maximum Force (plays blind) and a pretty new cabinet that had a Contra in it for sale. So the empty cabinet you can use for a multicade or whatever. Both for $500. Shipping is fine. Located in Midlothian, VA.

It would be great to take that Contra and put a Contra board in it again and restore it to it's original glory. The cabinet looks like it's in great shape.
There's one on eBay going for $3879 currently:

Yeah, you don't see many 25 year old cabinets like that that have labels and control panel overlays in that good of shape.

Quoted from Zartan:

Very nice! Congratulations!

Thanks - I love the Midway MCR games. Some of the best arcades ever made in my opinion. Kozmik Krooz'r is a little more of a novelty but still pretty fun. Does anybody have one of these things? Is the ship turning if the game is on? Mine does and it seems like the few others I've found on the web do as well even when the game is sitting idle. Seems odd to me but I guess it just goes with the game.

I don’t have the game but I just watched a few videos and it looks like it’s supposed to turn?

The original is always best, adjust it to perfection... if you still don’t like it, try out groovygamegear pac pro, it’s a modern take on the original, but with micro switches

Only arcade at the moment…..

Picked this up yesterday to add to my black and white arcade game collection (which is one of my main collecting areas).

Tora Tora
Its basically the attack on Pearl Harbor as a video game.
Similar game play to Space invaders, only the moon bases are a row of US battleships and your being attacked by Japanese zeros in groups of three.
There’s even a single plane that comes down that’s a kamikaze and crashes into your ships.

Very excited about this one.
Really friggin rare.

Wow!

I dont say that often, that looks amazing, I’ve never heard of it, and I’ve heard of and played almost everything

This reminds me this email I got this morning...

“ For military members deployed during World War II, familiar entertainment from beloved musicians was hard to find.
Enter V-Disc, a record label created by the American military during World War II to boost soldier morale while abroad. From 1943 to 1949, many popular artists recorded with friends and acquaintances at rival record labels. By the end of the decade, however, the masters had been destroyed and any existing V-Discs at military bases discarded.

Luckily, the Internet Archive’s Great 78 Project features a large number of these V-Disc recordings, which range from military marching songs to love ballads, and big band to swing. Below are just a handful of the V-Discs available to browse–but you can see the full collection here!”

I would think this would not be very popular among WWII veterans, which may attest to why its so rare today.
I can only envision a Pearl Harbor vet walking into an arcade and bowling alley and being like "What the flying F......?).
This came out around the same time period where games like Death Race was being removed from arcades for violence because the cars were running over people. I love this sort of stuff and its one of the major things I collect.
Going to open her up and do some work on her this weekend.
I took the lower back door off to tuck in the power cable before I moved it. and its pretty dusty inside.
She plays, but needs cleaned up and the monitor re-capped.
Also, Its a mirrored game, but either the bulb or starter is burnt out.
I asked the guy if it had a colored background and he did not know.
When I had the lower back door off, I could see the edges of the black light reactive background, but couldn't tell what the art looked like.
Can't find a video of it online either.
Guess I will find out this weekend.

Some games are definitely done in bad taste. This one is no exception, I love it for the history. But yes very poor taste. I’m really excited to see what you find as far as the inner design, space invaders was so cool when I first saw it had the UV reactive display on the inside of the cabinet, I hope the interior is in great shape

#3649 35 days ago
