Thanks! Yeah that one cost me 700$. A bit higher than I wanted to play.. but it came completely all-original with a rebuilt Wells Gardner monitor. Also, my girlfriend really loves the game and wanted it.

It's kind of finicky. I've replace the fuse-holders as many recommend to do, but I've still got a little more work to do to get the rest of the quirks out.

This has been great - it's been really nice seeing something like the new Rampage movie coming out and then bringing the nephew over to play it and see what inspired it.

Nice. I was playing Moon Shuttle, Pepper II, and Cloak & Dagger on mine last night after doing more work on Ms Pac.

Right? You have now told me about Pepper II - I have heard it whispered for years, and now I can just go play it.

Jiz, have you ever played "Preppie"?

Pepper II is great man. I really dig the sounds and the music.. even the "zippity doo dahhh!!" when you clear a maze lol

And no I have not played Preppie but after reading about it I'm going to. Looks pretty funny. I never knew there were Frogger clones like that!

Ok, I realized the reason I don't play this more is because with 1,000,000 games on it, you'd spend more time scrolling than anything else.

Does it support a favorites list?

Depends on what front end you're using. It looks like to me the default front in is Attract-Mode, which does support favorites lists. It looks like Button-A + Button-B toggles a game as a favorite, and then there's a game selection tab of just favorites.

I have been trying for months to find documentation. MONTHS! Where did you find this precious info? Can you share your findings!

Show me the receipts, Flack!!!!

The way things are, if any game becomes successful, there will soon be clones out. Maybe not even successful, maybe just heavily publicized. I seriously think if the developer hadn't dumped (almost all copies as) unsold inventory in a New Mexico landfill, we'd have seen clones of the game ET:The Extraterrestrial. All I can say about the potential developers of a clone of a game like that is, "may God have mercy on their soul."

The specific info I found is in the second link. The only hurdle is that it's spelled "favourite" which made finding it in Google a bit tough.
