Anyone else own a Star Warrior cocktail by Potomac Mortgage?

Recommended Posts

Picked one of these up in near mint condition about 3 months ago. A bit of Atari in the table style with a bit of Galaga in the game except you can move a bit more other than just straight across. Enemies don't seem to have any real formation. Cool as hell though. Don't seem to be many around.

If anyone can find some info on the game I posted above I'd appreciate it. Value, history etc. All I know is its a galaxian hack.

We have a computer museum inside our shop on Cape Cod.

 

I acquired Star Warrior (cocktail) a while back as a donation. It's in rough shape, but the game runs.

Needs repairs to monitor adjustment potentiometer and some grounding issues. Presently it zaps players (extra feature?)

 

Pics coming soon.

As it turned out, "Star Fighter" (Potomac Mortgage Company) DID see release apparently, though the cabinet art looks quite different from the flyer.

As "pbj" said, the photos ended up on the wrong KLOV entry.

For his side-art / control panet / PCB photos, see the following KLOV entry for Star Fighter (Ace Vending) where they are mistakenly linked (as of this post): http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=9757

 

Also, wanted to add that all Leisure Time Electronics games (so far as we know) are dumped and in MAME:

Of Potomac games, only Star Warriors is dumped and in MAME so far: http://www.progettoemma.net/indice.php?manu=1560

To continue this long running thread, I just came across a Moon Cresta 'Potomac Mortgage Company' Table Top. Was it determined that these were illegal knockoffs, or were they licensed somehow? Does this affect what little value this table top might have?
