Sunday December 20th is Arcade Night. This is were anybody who is interested in fixing up arcade machines or building your own game system or augmented reality game should come and collaborate! Starting at 5pm on Sunday show up to help out or start your own project. We will be fixing up several standup cabinets as well as the rather large arcade units.
Note: This is not a night to play arcade games but to build/refurbish them. Although we will always need to test our final products, of course…
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.
