I still plan on posting all of my arcade PCB repair logs here on AP, but I wanted to collect all of my video game repair logs, YouTube videos and other written materials from here and elsewhere into one self-hosted website so I know that they'll always be available. I'm sure AP is on solid ground, but you never know what could happen in this modern world when third-party systems can be bought out or go offline without warning.

Check out https://shootthecore.tech and let me know what you think!

I'll share on another post - not wanting to take away from the original post :)

I got mine here: (Warning: Wall Of Text is an understatement. It's a Space Elevator Of Text, almost 10000 lines. No pictures and more often than not I didn't even note the IC positions. No index either. They get updated from time to time, but I group similar machines, so have fun finding out what's new. No dates. The first logs date from around mid 2015)

Here's a short version. It still weighs in over 100 kilobytes.

Btw. these were written on anything from a 286 to a 486 (and not necessarily in that order). Of course that means you can read those on any machine that can display plain text files.
Did I mention I don't just collect antique computers but actually use them? Same goes for technology - I still record videos on VHS (sometimes even from Youtube) and record audio on cassette tapes. I don't have a flatscreen TV. Looks like I literally am retarded.

If you want some kind of index, the file is structured in the following sections (separated by a line of underscores):
TTL graveyards (no CPU)
Arcade games with CPU
Other stuff (mostly home games consoles)
Pinball MPUs

I tend to shy away from anything newer than early 90s but then again pretty much everything I have access to is from the 70s and 80 so most of what I fixed (or attempted) is from that period.
