I have a golden tee 2016. Buck hunter HD, NASCAR drivers with need for speed carbons in it. Just picked this NBA jam with WWE and 2 on 2 hockey boards. up over the weekend
Just picked this up over the weekend. Spent 100s $ on this back in high school. Monitor was bad , some of the controls did not work. Control panel burnt up. I order all new decals, I put a 26” HAPP LCD, fixed the broken wires for the controls and all is working. Ordered a flat screen bezel.
Just picked up a arcade legends with 263 games. As got a guitar hero arcade. Picked a crane up also
So far it is good,only game that doesn’t play right is Tempest because there is no spinner. Have not played all the games yet. Pacman ,Donkey Kong, Robotron all seem good.
Started restoring my super off road. Converted to a 26” HAPP lcd , installing all new decals. Control
Panel is all burned up. Monitor was not working.
Got control panel mostly done. Cabinet is sanded down. Lcd bezel came today. New t molding .
Quoted from Goalie:
Thanks, I'm terrible at soldering. Would it be better to switch to an LCD? I know it's more expensive but the video quality and flat screen would be an improvement, no? Can it even be switched to LCD?
I just converted a super off road to a LCD
I used a 26” HAPP. It plunged right in to the factor plugs.
Quoted from Nexyss:
I think CRTs look way better than LCDs on games that were designed to use them. It is easier to go LCD though, so a lot of people do it. More resolution is not always better if the games were designed to be a bit blurry (ie, pacman looks like a circle because the image isn't clear enough to see the blockiness of the pixels).
Also, if you think you might sell it later, most collectors would want the original CRT instead of an LCD.
Your right most game don’t look good with LCD. I put one in my MK2 and it looked terrible. Put one in Pac-Man also looked horrible. So I fixed the CRT. Put one is super off road and it looked better then the CRT.
