So close to the end now on Dracula. Time to check the final things off the to do list and get the game ready to go home. Something worth doing on all your games is replacing the batteries on the main board with a remote battery pack. This means any leakage will be kept away from the board and you’re only need to replace a $3 part. I build these myself, with all parts purchased from Bunnings (for the wooden dowel) and Jaycar (for the rest).
My work on servicing Counterforce is now coming to an end. It’s great news because now I can actually play and enjoy it! This project has gone quite quickly compared to my others (just over 2 months in length). First task for this update was to clean the legs up a bit. They are old and have some rust, but I’ve certainly seen worse. I have a two options I can consider. First is to clean them up and the second is to clear off the rust as much as possible and spray them. I guess a third option is buy a new set – but these legs are still good and I think a clean will do. New legs on a machine with faded and scratched cabinet art won’t look right anyway. Each leg was placed onto my work horse to have the rust cleaned up. This was done mostly with a wire brush attachment for my drill.
