Space Duel Arcade – Atari Cocktail (1982)

Space Duel is one of my favorite games! It is an extremely rare breed of color vector monitor game. Vector monitors use a different technology to normal raster monitors. The result is a beautiful crisp color image that has much more intensity than a raster. This unit came in with a variety of problems. No picture, and no game sounds was our starting point.

After getting the board working, we hooked up our monitor to discover that further issues persisted. Complete collapse of our picture!

We got into repairing the deflection board of our Wells Gardner color vector monitor and got a partial improvement. dug deeper and got our full picture back.

The completely repaired product looks and plays fabulously! Such a cool unique machine. And it came with a really neat keychain tag we had to show off.
