New Hive13 Project – Meltdown

November 26th, 2009

This is another project initiated by PlayerTwo.  This is an older arcade game called Meltdown.  The way the game works is the game will move a goal box up and down a center tube.  Inside the center tube is a radioactive sample that the gamer must keep centered inside the goal box by adjusting the flow of the air through the center tube.

The main problem at the moment is that the goal box is on a cable that keeps getting snagged and is a bit stretchy so it slips.  Once this problem is worked out there is a bit of surface work that needs to be done.

    It was indeed a pleasant surprise to see the Meltdown project on the site, today! Everyone was incredibly helpful at the meeting, offering suggestions and just plain diving into the guts of the machine to help get it going, again. Jim Dallam even took the time to come up with a listing of materials and suppliers that might be able to help us make the machine work properly, long-term.

    Hey, I own one of these machines also. But I don’t have a manual for it. In the picture it looks like there is one on the floor of the machine. Any chance I could get a scan / copy of that? Much appreciated.
