Welcome to M.A.R.S. (Mark's Arcade Retro Site). This is my web page dedicated to those who love coin-op video arcade games. There's lots of information and hopefully some entertaining stuff, too.
This has been the self proclaimed "Year of Sega". So far I have created high score saves for all of the Sega vector games, and setup a repair bench and fixed over 30 CPU boards.
I wrapped up my Addams Family Gold project. The pinball came out beautiful, and barely fit in the lineup, so no more pinball projects unless I get rid of one (I'm looking at you, Junkyard).
As for video projects, the last cabinet I picked up was a classic Taito that I plan on turning into a multi Arkanoid, as it's a fun, approachable game.
Time for another update! Been a slow year. All previous projects have been completed. The only thing I'm working on now is a Addams Family Gold pinball that I picked up locally. It had major corrosion issues, but Evaporust, a polishing wheel, and an ultrasonic cleaner have done wonders for it. Should come out really nice.
Other than that, I'm toying with the idea of building some more Eliminator 4-player cabinets.
My troubleshooting page contains links to repair FAQs, sites, tips, and people who can help you to fix your favorite arcade game or PCB.

A great site by a different Mark...he's got the most comprehensive list of video arcade game links I've seen, so instead of replicating them here, I'll just point to his page and he can deal with the maintenance :-)Rick's Game Repair
