Picked up a Capcom Bowling conversion to fix for a friend. This won't be a complete restoration, but just one to get it working, cleaned up, and reliable.

It's mid-2017 which means walking over the arcade to see what status it's in - what works and what doesn't. Take a short journey through the history of the games I've found and why I like them!

Finally got the control panel installed. Had to rewire the whole harness because I chose poorly and decided to reconfigure the Rampage harness rather than use one of the included Xenophobe harnesses. I figured it would be less work, but I was wrong.

The same eBay seller who supplied the Xenophobe main PCB ended up selling numerous Sounds Good boards as well! For $25, I bought one of those too, completely untested. The appearance was good, but would it work?

Xenophobe isn't the most popular game available in the arcade trading market. In fact, I've seen only a handful pass through eBay. But in order to fully restore the machine, I'm going to need a main PCB. And when six of them showed up on eBay at one time, I had to snag one. For $50, we take a gamble on an 'untested' Xenophobe PCB from eBay. How bad could it be?
