tidbits :

 

TECHNICAL :

You must have +12v and -5v hooked up post-onboard-regulator stage otherwise you only get an inch wide playfield. The video circuits use strange amplifiers and stuff to stretch and scroll the playfield, they use the less than normal voltages, nothing else :)

 

PCB pictures :

  PCB #1 - fully working
  PCB #2 - garbage on bootup - came out of the actual machine, needs fixing.
