    Description of the game:
    This game is in fantastic shape aside from a scratch along one side that I touched up. Centipede and Millipede are two games that really make the trakball shine. Personally, I just like the artwork and overall cabinet design for Millipede better than Centipede so that's the cabinet i've chosen to keep. To this day, I vividly remember staring through the lock gate of The Gold Mine arcade watching workers remove the game from it's shipping crate. I was the 2nd person to ever play it in my local arcade! This game was not working when I got it, but thankfully it was only two rams away from being up and running!

    Restoration Process:
  • Replaced the Marquee overlay
  • recapped monitor
  • replaced big blue
  • replaced 2 bad rams
  • touched up the scratch on the side
  • rebuilt the trak ball

    I can't get my trakball to work properly. Took it apart to check and oil and now i can't control it. Connect one way and no up and down, another way and no left to right. Can't figure what I did. Is there a site I can use. Thanks

    Try that's a great page about trakballs. Just make sure you don't over oil the bearings and get oil on the rollers..
