Well, typical "bullet proof" mods for Pac-Mans are repinning the edge connector, replacing the fuse holders, rebuilding the power supplies on the PCBs, and capping the monitors. Do you need to do all of that? Probably not.

For Nintendo cabs, typically you just have to cap the Sanyos. The original PSUs are typically pretty reliable.

Once you cap that CRT, it's gonna last forever. Especially in a home situation. Don't worry about it.

Have you looked at Phoenix Arcade?

I agree that original is better, though.

That's a cool game! I tried that in MAME before. I like it. NICE SCORE>

Yes, the MAME roms should do it. They were dumped from the original PCBs.

Laws? Are there laws against selling digital or TOS created by sellers like Steam?

If you're REALLY interested in starting with the basics, then getting a FANTASTIC understanding of what's going on within these CRTs, sink your teeth into Randy Fromm's 4 part series on CRT Monitors:

Agree! I watched every minute of those videos. I learned a lot!

Awesome, Sonny! THanks for joining.

Silent Scope is pretty bad ass. I never see those in people's collections. VERY cool. That game blew me away the first time I played it. Welcome to the madness.

Hi, is there anywhere i can get a download of the Johns Arcade logo so i can print it on my 8 year olds T-shirt? Hoping to see John in the UK this month and i would love my boy to have a T-shirt, there is no time to have one posted and i guess i cant get childrens size either, i wanted to have it printed locally on an existing T-Shirt. I did email John but i know he is super busy. Thanks

I e-mailed you the .AI file. Did you get it? I replied.

Post photos. I am sure it's a conversion and was originally something else.
