Alien Syndrome Restore
« on: August 30, 2019, 10:31:52 AM »
So back in April I was looking for a project and was offered an Alien Syndrome by HighProtein.  It was working but looked pretty rough, and I decided to go for a full-on restore.  Still looking for correct joysticks, but considered finished well enough last weekend.

Some before and after pics:

Thanks for the kind words.

I guess the joystick from the Speedlink Comp Pro controller is an exact match.

I looked at the photo and immediately remembered my childhood. It was very cool. It is a pity that time does not return ...
