Using Clay Cowgill’s 24in1 Multi-Pac Kit
Description of game:
Nice little Pac-Man Plus cabaret cabinet. Worked great, but I thought it could use a Multi-Pac kit!
Different games that this cabinet plays:
- Pac-Man (original, fast, plus, plus fast, Puckman, Hanglyman mod[ified], Pac-Man After Dark, Namco (Sil), Pacmini2, Pengoman, Pac-Man 3D, and Piranha)
- Ms. Pac-Man (original, fast, plus, plus fast, Ms. Pac Attacks, Ms. Pac R.I.P., and Ms. Indy Pac)
- Crush Roller
- Lizard Wizard
How I got it:
Finally a Pac-Man! This is one of my must have games. Slowly starting to get the collection I wanted. At the time, I really wanted a Joust, Tempest, and Ms. Pac-Man! There were a few games that are must have’s for me, and it is nice to find a good deal on another one. This one actually looked like it had an interesting life. It started as a Pac-Man, was converted to a Pac-Man Plus, and ended up a Ms. Pac-Man. I also seem to be doomed to only find Pac games with those stupid speedup chips! I ended up purchasing a Multi-Pac kit for it, so I didn’t have to worry about the speedup chip. There was a weird square button on the control panel. Not sure what it was there for. I actually saw one of these on eBay with a button similar to it. Must have had a purpose a some point. The PCB works great, but the neck board on the monitor is broken in half. I decided to give repairing the monitor a go. Glad I did. I was able to repair the neck board with a ton of solder and short wire splices, and it works! Since I was already monkeying with it, I decided to also do my first cap kit. I was pretty nervous discharging the monitor. I was especially nervous when I DIDN’T hear a POP. I guess it is one of the models of monitors that discharges itself. Anyway, the monitor turned out great. There is still some Pac-Man burn in, but it will have to do.
What it still needed when I sold it:
It needs a CPO or another control panel because the one installed is a bit worn.
Who has it now:
Sold it to a friend of mine. It’s now sitting in his parents’ basement gameroom.
I’ve wanted a Ms. Pac-Man for years. Finally had one. Just ended up that I needed to sell it to continue working on some of my other games. I knew I would get another some day. I really wanted a full Upright, and not a cabaret cabinet.
KLOV Multi Pac
Clay’s Multigame.com – No Multi-Pac references there any more. Must have been Namco/Two Bit Score pressure.
Mike Doyle’s 96-in-1 Multi Pac – This one is still available and also really good!
