A friend of mine, Al Kossow, told me about an arcade game dealer who had a Kram machine that he had accidentally broken the marquee on. He dealt mostly in mainstream stuff (Pac, Kong, etc.), so his market really didn't buy the rare collector-type stuff. The PCB in the Kram was flaky, so he pulled the monitor out and was going to throw the cabinet away. I offered to take the cabinet from him for free and, of course, he agreed and arranged a time to drop it off at my office. When he arrived with it, we chatted, and I told him I planned on restoring it, perhaps creating a new marquee, and putting it with the other four games I had that ran on the same hardware (Qix). I asked if he might have a picture of the machine from before the marquee broke so I could attempt to re-draw it. He said he could do one better. He had an old operator friend who collected marquees and had a Kram marquee he could borrow but was not for sale. He offered to borrow it for me to scan. He did and I scanned it and redrew it and it came out really nice. I have since become friends with the dealer and we get along pretty well. The dealer's name is Stephen Beall of "Blast from the Past" amusements. Good guy. I recently found a web site selling a bunch of marquees including a Kram marquee for $20, so I picked that up just to keep it original, even though it doesn't look as nice as the one I redrew.
The game had the typical Qix hardware problems. I patched the code to run without the coin processor, put a PC-AT power supply in place of the flaky OEM supply and replaced the horrid board-eating battery with a NVRAM board designed by Mark Spaeth.
