80: The Black Panther?







April 2019

We are back in the studio for ep. 80 and while we might not be as epic as our namesake MCU counterpart, we certainly think we bring it back home this month, if nothing else in the number of commutes for this episode!

There’s been much to catch up on and we run the gamut this month, discussing everything from updates on gameroom audio setups, pinball art blades, Texas Pinball Festival, a Neo-Geo MVS pickup, oscilloscopes, the new Coin-Op Carnival book release, rebuilding G07’s and the K4600, spend some of Brent’s money, discuss Black Knight Sword of Rage and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and…..well… you get the idea. 🙂

We also add in a ton of feedback and it generated some great discussion, so thanks to everyone who submits and keep it coming!

All up, we do our best super-hero podcasting for over 4 hours and this is all we have to show for it…CORRECTION – we do have a new mascot, but you’ll have to listen to get the backstory on that!

Atari ARI/ARII OverVoltage Protection Add-On Board & Remote Monitor BoardTools"As these games age there is always the risk that components will fail. On the ARI/II the most common failures are in the LM305 +5V discrete linear regulator section where several components may incur an over-voltage condition on the +5V rail. The voltage, theoretically, could rise to just under the unregulated 10.3Vunreg input voltage. This voltage would exceed the standard TTL 5.75V spec for most ICs on the logic board.

This product is a plug and play solution which will remove the +5V (and sense) if the +5V exceeds a pre-defined over-voltage threshold. 

As time goes on, Atari logic boards now range between $100 to $1500. This device provides protection for these boards, protection your investment and ultimately provide "peace of mind". "

    You two are awesome together and this podcast was very informative. I loved the “grandpa” comment for Whitney as well. You both are “retro” on a grand scale!
