- Product Details
The System 1 board is a plug-in replacement for the original Gottlieb System 1 CPU.
The new Mark ll supports all of the games in the platform series, and provides considerable diagnostic capability for the technician when troubleshooting where a game may be malfunctioning. The entire game software has been re-written with an emphasis on maintaining the timing and compatibility of the original board, however with quite a bit more functionality added in.
Key Benefits: Direct replacement of the original System1 board. Enhanced switch input circuitry preventing damage to the board from playfield wiring issues. 3-month warranty.
All game code completely re-written (with some minor original Gottlieb glitches omitted!)
Text based diagnostics menu system that allows operator settings previously done via DIP switches to be entered via front door switches.
Tests that cycle repeatedly (until timeout) to help isolate faults.
Enhanced use of high reliability surface-mount components with off-the-shelf thru-hole components at the edge for ease of serviceability.
Display test to exercise all digit segments (numbers), and to strobe each digit independently to check for display (UDN6118) shorts.
Solenoid test that exercises each coil including lamp controlled coils (when DIP switch configuration set for such a game)
Enhanced switch test to identify stuck switches.
Power-up code revision and game setting displayed for quick diagnostic configuration identification.
Switch test that detects dirty switches on the playfield.
All 16 System 1 games are included on one board with no ROM swapping required.
Original MPU functionality has been closely duplicated and adds many optional features including: Free Play game mode Updated game options for many games to allow add-a-ball mode (multiple free-balls awarded during a single ball) where the playfield challenge is completely reset once after scoring the free-ball / special. Menu options to disable add-a-ball (for operators who requested it!) Automatic scoring threshold adjustment. Ball Save! Million point scoring. Idle mode animation. Skill shot option. Four high scores memory. Restore factory-settings option for quick reset of settings. Open-collector output logic with zener diode protection for all solenoid circuits and lamp select lines to prevent CPU damage from a damaged driver board. Battery-less operation - all settings and high-score data are stored in FLASH with >100,000 write cycles. Designed for low-cost component repair and maintenance on I/O sensitive components (exposed to bad displays / bad driver boards, etc.) Stuck switches are ignored and do not impair the rest of the games operation, including the slam switch!
Eighteen years in business with thousands of boards sold internationally.

All parts purchased through this site are under warranty. For specific warranty information please see the product categories below. K’s Arcade recommends that all boards and electronic parts be installed by a professional. The installation of these parts can cause damage to your game or part if installed incorrectly or there is an underlying problem that has not been addressed.
Please note: The installation of any part in your game may not fix the problem. It does not mean the part is defective. Often there is either a known or undetermined problem that is not alleviated by the installation of a new or refurbished part.
If you believe that your part has malfunctioned and is in the warranty coverage period, please contact us before sending it in for authorization via email. We will help to determine the next best steps for your particular part. We always try to work with a customer first before recommending that they send in their board for testing/warranty. It is best to contact us via email. Please be sure to provide the following information: Your name, the type of board, the game name (i.e. Black Knight), and what the game is or isn't doing. A technician will reply promptly to your email.
IMPORTANT WARRANTY INFORMATION: There will be a $35 testing charge for boards that are sent back to us under warranty and are tested with "no problems found". Because all boards that leave our facility have been game tested, those that come back and that have legitimate warranty issues is less than 1%. In most cases, there are other undiagnosed problems with customers' games which may cause the appearance of a malfunctioned board. Most boards that come back to us have no problems whatsoever. The testing fee has been implemented to recover the time it takes to test the board. There is NO testing fee if we find problems. We fix the board and send it back at no cost to the customer.
NOTE: Parts that are returned to us damaged due to power surges or other external sources are not covered under warranty. If we are able, we can repair the damage at a reasonable cost at the customer’s expense.
New boards purchased through K’s Arcade come with the manufacturer’s warranty as described on the boards detail page on this site. If for any reason the board malfunctions please contact us immediately and we will direct you accordingly.
All refurbished and new old stock boards are game tested and come with a 30-day warranty.

- Special Shipping Details
Standard or typical shipment:
Parts will likely ship within one to two business days. All orders over $100 will be shipped with insurance to cover loss or damage and may require a signature. Below is information regarding the shipping of non-standard items.
Due to the unique nature how we package transformers, they may take up to two or more business days to ship. In many cases transformers and transformer assemblies can be shipped within the United States using a Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate box. If that is the case then K’s Arcade will refund the difference in shipping to the customer. The website calculates the shipping for a transformer as though it ships in a standard Priority Mail box to accommodate all shipping scenarios.
If other items are purchased along with the transformer the other items will likely ship in another package to prevent damage. If multiple packages are require to fill an order, the customer may be charged for additional shipping if necessary. This is our policy for both domestic and international customers.
Boards with ROMs (CPUs/MPUs and sound or display boards):
In many cases these items require ROMs to be programmed and installed prior to shipping, therefore it may take up to two or more business days to ship.
Boards with Lithium batteries:
These items require a Lithium wafer battery which K’s Arcade provides and installs prior to shipment in order to be in compliance with Federal shipping regulations.
For international shipments: Some countries prohibit the shipment of any Lithium batteries. In this case, no Lithium battery will accompany the board and the customer must provide their own battery.
K’s Arcade uses UPS to package and ship back glasses due to the fragile nature of these items. We coordinate the drop off of the glass at a local UPS store who then packages and ships the glass with guidance by the customer. Customers can choose which level of shipping they desire and pay for the shipping directly with UPS. We have successfully shipped back glasses this way all over the world with a 100% success rate. Back glasses can also be picked up by the customer and must coordinate with K’s Arcade to do so.
New Stern games can either be picked up at our location or drop shipped to the customer. Shipping is additional and dependent on your location. Please contact us so that we can give you a shipping quote. Shipping is through a freight company who we have used for years with great success. In most cases we do not stock new games so there will be some lead time for order processing and shipping.
Pre-owned games can also ship, via freight, from our location to yours – again, at a cost to the customer.
