In Topic: Any way to remove light paint scuffs from consoles?

That's a bad spot. If you could find the right shade of permanent markers, you could color over the scuff...

I appreciate the advice guys. I emailed X-Arcade people a few weeks ago stating I bought this second hand and they offered a full set of replacement rollers and bearings for $15 which is fair but I really don't need the whole set. I'll call them when I get a chance and see if if they offer any other options. If not I'll take Tombstone up on his offer for one of his spare rollers. Thanks again.

Does anyone know what brand of trackball X-Arcade uses? Happ? Imperial?


Are they all the same? Ebay has them for $7.69. I could go that route.

Best part is when you completely slaughter them in a game without even looking at the screen.

...And they yell at you! You're cheating!

That's correct, Missile Command does not work. From the games you have to work with, I would choose Dig Dug to get things calibrated.

I'm not suggesting you try and play the game with a digital stick. Just calibrate the pots by putting the crosshairs in the middle of the screen.


Dig Dug is a good choice. Once he stops moving you are good. Though keep in mind each game might have a slightly different sweet spot for each pot.
