My conversion of Dunk Shot to Tehkan World Cup is going fairly well.

Firstly the external work on the cabinet is complete and ready for the artwork.

Here is a picture of where things are currently at:

The cabinet has been painted and has t-moulding fitted. The coin door has been coated and re-fitted, and the control panels have been mounted and screwed into place after also being coated.

After the artwork has been applied, the next steps will be to work on the internal parts of the cabinet. Fitting a monitor, power supply, game board and trackballs etc. Luckily I now have a working game pcb to mount in the machine:

I’ve been busy working on a reproduction Vs. Goonies/Gradius daughterboard for the Nintendo Vs. system.

There were complexities to this PCB because it uses a custom VRC chip, which are not easy to find, and there are no schematics for this board so it was a case of tracking down an original PCB, and mapping out all the pinouts. The great thing is that this PCB will be a lot less than an original PCB, so it makes it cheap and more available for the people that would love to own it, like myself 🙂

This is the circuit diagram I produced using Eagle:
