Welcome

Welcome to the new Cambridge Arcade Repair arcade game and pinball machine tech center and online store.

Long ago, this site existed as rgvac.978.org, but when the hard drive on my webserver crashed, the data went with it, and all I was left with was mirrors that other arcade collectors and web spiders had made. Various people have been bugging me for years to put a website back up and make up a list of available products. Thanks to some hosting and content management advice from Adam over at onecircuit.com, this beta site has gone live.

Please be patient as I (slowly) populate the store and tech section. The store and cart should be fully functional but payments have not yet gone live, stock numbers have not been entered, and shipping estimates will likely take some time to sort out, so if you need something, feel free to contact me at cambridgearcade@gmail.com.

Daphne USB Scoreboard Dongle

$60.00

This board interfaces to the 16-pin Dragon's Lair scoreboard connector to micro-USB to run Daphne on newer computers that lack a parallel port.

Open source patches to Daphne are available along with pre-compiled binaries for Linux and RaspberryPi. Both ports require libusb and libftdi1 to be installed to operate.

A Windows version is not yet available due to difficulties getting Daphne to build on a recent version of Visual Studio, but one may be available in the future.

Space Ace Conversion Annunciator Board

This board installs directly onto the scoreboard connector of an original dragon's lair PCB, and it used to illuminate the LEDs on the start buttons for a Space Ace cabinet that was converted from Dragon's Lair.

Price: $50.00

Space Ace Dedicated Annunciator Board

$75.00

This board installs in the speaker panel of a dedicated Space Ace Cabinet to illuminate the skill level being played.
