I have a Defender that I would like to convert to a Multi Williams. Can I
use some of the boards or do I have to have newer boards from a Robotron or
Joust?? Was thinking of the kit from Phoenixarcade.
Does anyone have any experience from dealing with them??
And hows the artwork??
Should I look for any other source??
Is there a do it youre self model anywhere??

TIA

Rich-
It wouldn't make sense to get a Jamma one if he has a working Defender.
The kit that Clay has would be a much, much, better option. Though, I
think I'd keep the original Defender artwork except for the control
panel.

My mistake. I was thinking that Defender worked with the multi kit.
I'm not sure there's a really easy way to Jammatize that cab. You're
in a tough spot. When I got mine, the cabinet was empty, so I just
wired it as a Jamma Defender....much easier.

The artwork is great! They are out of the kit though and won't be
restocking. I tried to order one last night. You can get the kit directly
from the maker here:

He makes these up by hand, so you'll need to email him about when the next
batch will be ready,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "not sure there's a really easy way to
Jammatize that cab". Defender is a cabinet like any other. Simply remove all
of the original main wiring harness. Keep the isolation transformer, on/off
switch, speaker and flouroescent wiring. Install any jamma harness into the
cabinet attaching the appropriate wires to their locations and you're all
set. Simple as any other jamma conversion. The fact that it's a Defender has
nothing to do with anything. You're not in a tough spot at all. Good luck
with the conversion! ;)

I have the early model of defender cpu and I assume that I need a newer for
the conversion??
Does anyone have a cpu that would work with Clays multi game for sale

What "appropriate locations" do ou wire to? No Jamma kit is going to
match up to a williams coin door connector and he'll need to wire a
control panel. A Super Jamma kit isn't plug and play in this cabinet.
You can probably do it in a day, but it's not an easy process to
jammatize it. You're right though, it's not much tougher than most
other games. For some games though, you can just snip the edge
connector, add new split pins, put them in the right places in a jamma
connector and you're set. You'd just have to take the buttons and
joysticks out and put them in the new panel. I'd hate to ruin a
defender harness like that though.

By appropriate locations, I mean the coin 1 wire goes to the 1st coin slot,
the coin 2 wire goes to the 2nd coin slot, the up wire goes to the up on the
joystick, the down wire goes to the down on the joystick, etc, etc. Once you
make the decision to jammatize a cabinet, you'll have to rewire the coin
door as well. You'll also need to rewire the control panel. Sure, it's not a
quick job to do, but it is easy and relatively simple. I always remove the
complete main harness from any game I jammatize, so a Defender job is no
different that doing a Ms. Pac or a Donkey Kong to me. I don't cut factory
harnesses.

Hell...

Just go to www.jammaboards.com and buy their full jamma harness for $15...
it's a fully wired labled connecter WITH 0.18 disconnects already on the
ends of the wires... for 90% of the connections it's just follow the wire
and plug it in.

Hell... for $15 I'm never gonna crip again!
