You really don't see many of these so I'm glad I managed to save mine:

I had this game on my PC in the early 90s. I didn't realize it was an arcade cab too.

That was an interesting write up. I enjoyed seeing how you used the logic analyser in conjunction with the mame debugger. I don't think I'll be attempting a repair that complex any time soon!

This also made me wish that other modern boardsets had monitor programs with diagnostics accessible via UART access!
