I hate watching my old stuff... I also have a hard time watching my new stuff... And I have an even harder time watching my future stuff. Silly....
Go to vimeo page to see a more detailed breakdown of what I did in each shot. Every project is a team effort and I have worked with many awesome people thus I do NOT want to take credit for their work.

Poo aside I could see great potential in this machine and I already loved it.
The very sweet lady who sold the machine told me that it had been in her fast food restaurant many years ago and since then had been sitting in her garage for several years. It is really cool getting the story behind the machine and I like the idea of this being a burger join machine :D.
There was a game connected to the system, that turned out to be a "Bootleg Super Bubble Bobble". However when the machine died it must have done some damage to the board. I tested it and it powers up and gives you the title screen but doesn't react to inputs like start or coin up. I will delve further into this later.
However she also sold me a Neo Geo MVS board with a "Puzzle Bobble" cartridge.
Tested and it works great.
Looking through the parts of the machine I could see that it indeed was all original parts. Question was how many of them were working...
The Jamma harness had been chewed up or ripped apart. Perhaps when the coin mechanism was removed from the front of the cabinet. It was missing pins and some of the power wires had come undone.
I started testing each wire for continuity and began to move each wire to a new 56pin jamma connector I had bought online. It takes some time to solder all those connections but it is well worth knowing that the connections are solid.
Moreover the MVS board uses a variation of the jamma pin out, so I might do a simple fingerboard converter in the near future.

However half way there the seller send me a message saying he wouldn't be home until late that day. Which would leave me waiting some 5 or 6 hours for him to come home. Moreover the online article for selling the machine was reopened now at a higher price than what the first article that I had agreed to....
Pictures to come.
Need a break from this one.
