This is another machine I got from Gaymond Lee. I didn't even know there was a sequel to Joust until I saw Gaymond advertise it in 1996. I made arrangements and drove from Northern California to San Diego to pick it up. The condition of the cabinet was very good. The game works and plays great, but there is a kind of loud hum that comes from the speakers. One of these days I'll get around to figuring out why. Cosmetically, the only flaw was a 1.5" x 1" gouge missing from the front of the CPO.
Around 1998 I found someone who had a NOS Joust 2 control panel overlay. Whoa. You don't see those everyday. I agreed to trade a spare Joust 2 PCB for it. I really hate removing old CPOs and mine was not really in bad condition. It'd be a shame to pull it off when there's other people with CPOs in much worse need of attention. I did a little searching and found someone with a trashed CPO. I suggested a trade where I give them my whole control panel for their machine and in turn, they apply my new CPO to their bad panel and give that to me. I think it worked out well. Now this machine is really beautiful.
