Every game that I sell gets an "off frame restoration". I put a lot of time, effort, and energy into every game that I sell, and I take pride in every game that I sell.
So what's the big deal?
Most Megatouch games that you will see have spent most of their life in a bar or restaurant. Many of them show that by the condition that they are in. Lot's of people will just pull them out of a bar and list them on eBay. The problem with this is that there is no telling what problems the game may have that the owner doesn't know about. Also, many times they are in physically poor condition. However, the operator has made his money, and he just wants to get the game out of his way.
The games that I sell are NOT like this. If you purchase a game from us, you will be getting a machine that is as close to new as possible. In every game that is sold, you can rest assured that your game works now, will work when you get it, and will continue to work for years to come.
Megatouch games are very similar to Vacuum cleaners in that they suck in a lot of dust, smoke, grime, etc, but they don't spit it out. Therefore, one of these games that has been on a location for a year or 2 can have dust bunnies the size of your fist trapped in them. After the game has been disassembled, we clean the inside of the game. Next, we go through the game boards. we check the fans to ensure that they are functioning properly, and if they are not, they get replaced. we clean the gold plated connectors, as they can have small amounts of corrosion, and cause problems on down the line. If the game is CD Rom based, I install a BRAND NEW CD rom drive, so that there is one less potential problem for the new owner of the machine. Next, we perform a factory reset on the disk drive, as well as clear the memory. Since the game may have problems that the operator doesn't know about, doing this will ensure that the game is operating properly, and quite frequently, I update the software. After we finish the cleaning/hardware verification of the inside of the game, we will generally start the reassembly. Most of the time, the cabinet needs something. It always gets new T-Molding. Sometimes, it will just get a good cleaning, but more often than not, the old side art is removed. If the cabinet isn't in good shape, it will get brand new, professionally-made sides. Then, after everything has been cleaned, checked, and put back together, we will make final adjustments to the monitor, calibrate the touchscreen, and install new side art (if needed).
From this point, we leave the game powered on for 24 to 48 hours to make sure that there aren't any problems with random lockups, or maybe something that isn't caught before. Then, the game gets packaged, boxed, and ready to ship. This process usually takes between 10 to 25 hours, depending on the game, and what is done to it.
Now, you may find another game that sells for cheaper than this, but you will not find one that has been given as much attention to detail as mine have. We appreciate these games, we love what we do, and can still sit down in front of one and play for hours. we have nearly all the parts available for these, as well as provide tech support for as long as you'd like (and even past then). we have quite a few repeat buyers and they have come to know that when they purchase from us, they will be getting a great game, in great condition, that works, and will continue to work for a long time to come. Look at my auctions. We work to make every transaction go as smoothly as possible, and help our customers out in every way that I can. we have done this many many many times! we are experienced and have literally gone through hundreds of countertop games. we will guarantee that if you buy from us, you will not be let down.
