Replacement System24 Floppy disks 21-Nov-2013
I can now do replacement System24 floppy disks for the following games:-

DS3-5000-01A [Hot Rod 4player]
DS3-5000-01D [Hot Rod 3player Turbo]
DS3-5000-02A [Scramble Spirits Japan - Hot Rod Bios/Regular 68K]
DS3-5000-02E [Scramble Spirits World - Regular 68K]
DS3-5000-03D [GainGround USA - Encrypted]
DS3-5000-04D [Crackdown USA - Encrypted]
DS3-5000-05D [Super Masters USA - Encrypted]
DS3-5000-06B [Rough Racer Japan - Encrypted]
DS3-5000-07B [Bonanza Bros Japan]
DS3-5000-07C [Bonanza Bros USA]
DS3-5000-09? [Dynamic .C.C Japan - Regular 68K]
DS3-5000-09D [Dynamic .C.C USA - Encrypted]

The cost of a replacement disk is £5, plus shipping.

All disks are done via my custom PC setup and not via the System24 mainboard - the reason being that I write the disks, then read the disks back and perform a CRC check to make sure all data is 100%.

You should backup the replacement disk via the System24 backup method (Hold service on power up and follow the instructions on screen), and then store the master disk safe (away from magnetic sources,dust and small children!).

One word of warning - System24 is fussy on the floppy disk drive - it does not like modern PC floppy disk drives, anything later than 2002 seems to be unstable.

Also I've seen RPM flucations that can cause the sector to become corrupt, I do verify my replacements on my working System24.

The Hot Rod/Scramble Spirits Japan are the worst as the sectors are larger than standard and packed close together, if you get a formatting error then most likely your floppy disk drive is not up to the task.

AGS doing a little for Comic Relief 2013 11-Mar-2013
Hi guys/gals - that time of year where I try to-do my little bit.

For every new Facebook like, I will donate £1, and I will also be donating a % of all income from AGS from Monday 11th to Friday the 15th.

For people who are not in the UK here is a quick run down on Comic Relief.


Comic Relief
is a charity based in the UK that aims to make the world free from poverty. Their mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment, hence the title “Comic Relief”. They’ve raised over £800,000,000 for people in over 70 countries worldwide (including the UK) since the charity formed in 1985, with most of that money being generating during the Red Nose Day and Sport Relief events in the UK. The money we donate goes to projects such as vaccinating children against deadly diseases, providing people with clean running water, and providing expert care & advice to those suffering from illnesses such as Dementia.

The UniversalPC Concept 01-Feb-2013
I've been working on this for a while in my head - I've done a few prototypes as proof-of-concept.

The benefits of this system are as follows:

1) Uses new hardware (not old stock or second hand stuff which is unreliable and has no warranty)
2) Generic you only have to worry about 1 type of main board in your spares/warehouse
3) Cheaper/Less time consuming that buying/finding old hardware
4) Full recovery system using my custom USB recovery device.
5) Rapid recovery time - I am hearing customers who have had there PCBs in for repair for like 6weeks - 6week downtime is a joke - if you had the replacements in stores, you could be up and running in the same day!

Tell me more!

This is how it would work, I'd suggest some certain types of main boards which you can find locally in your territory, you'd then send me a unit and let me know what games you want on the system - I would build USB recovery image and supply you with a master USB drive (from which you can create your own USB pen drives - depending if you want to offer your end user the ability to re-install on site) also you'd buy the hardware (you could buy all the hardware direct from me also, but I'd have to put my % on).

Because you are buying the hardware directly you have control of the budget and do not pay the massive overly priced costs when going to the arcade spares dept in the various establishments, you also kill the middle man repair centre.

But, doesn't this mean you are putting yourself out of business??

Well, no - The pricing would be a one-of fee initially to convert a game to the new PC platform, this would give you the USB recovery system to create replacement PC units of a set game - also you would need to buy authorised blank SSD drives from me - only my SSDs will work with this system, and these SSD will be set per-organisation (so you can not swap recovery images/or clone the images manually) - this also means other people can not rip-off my work (like I’ve seen in the past! Although I am aware nothing is 100% safe, especially when it is Windows based!).

The cost of the blank SSD would be cheap anyway, around £50-£60.

What do you do exactly?

I take the "original" game, remove all the old hardware drivers from the WindowsXP embedded system, and replace with the new mainboard configuration - all the other aspects stay the same - the original windows files, game files, game security (I do not condone/nor endorse removing security from games) and what not - you can't merely install Windows XP vanilla and hope these things will work - most games have there own tailour made XP embedded configuration with the correct drivers for what they need, be it a certain video codec, or a immersion USB driver - once the game is working 100% (sound, video, network, etc then I seal and shrink wrap it for the automated recovery USB system).

So how do I use it?

You build up a PC there, with your bought in main board/cpu/ram - fit the SSD drives you buy from me, and install the USB recovery dongle - on the power-up it will build up the game/windows from that – to work just like the original (the process generally takes from 3-20minutes depending on the size) - then the game will be ready for using - plug in the I/O, security dongle and you'll be away.

Why do you use USB recovery and not CD/DVD?

I use USB for a number of reasons

1) 4GB/8GB USB pen drives are cheap
2) All new main boards are USB2 and USB transfer rate is as good/if not better than CD/DVD
3) It's small and robust!! CD/DVDs are not!
4) Most PCs in for repair there CD/DVD drives are either dead or clogged with rubbish/dust and these are just more hardware taking juice from the PC (especially when they are only used for recovery!)
5) Most people don't have the restore CD/DVDs anyway!

Why do you use SSD (Solid State Drive) for storage?

1) Price, SATA HDDs are generally 250GB or higher – for arcade we do not need such a huge drive!
2) Reliability, SSD do not having moving parts, they generate hardly no heat and use hardly any power!
3) Most PC arcade games use a file write filter – meaning hardly any data gets written to the drive – making SSD the perfect candidate.

What kind of games would work via this setup??

RawThrills - Fast and Furious,Superbikes,Drift,etc
Global VR - NFS GT/Underground/Carbon, Nascar, Aliens, Frightmareland, PGA Golf, etc
Sega - Ford Racing, Sega Rally 3, Grid

Pretty much any PC Game from 2002-2009 that doesn't require dedicated hardware (or locked down via a bespoke linux kernel).

I am looking for feedback and also I am looking for potential investors - email me on andy@andygeezerservices.co.uk

Welcome to the year 2013 - Glad you came along! 02-Jan-2013
Well this will be a make or break year for AGS as I decide if I continue or not, so support is vital! I am working on a number of projects here to save you - the end user money.

New things we are happy to offer to our customers - on most PC repairs - we can offer a USB memory stick restore function - this will restore the HDD to the original state of repair (meaning if the HDD goes down then simply put in a new HDD and plug the USB memory stick in and boot - bingo it will be up and running again) - also this means CD/DVD drives can be done away with (they generally get clogged with dust and cease to function anyway!) - request restore functionality on your repairs for only £15 - (the USB dongle is locked to the repaired PC).

Also I've developed a bespoke mainboard kit for RawThrills/GlobalVR games - why take the risk of using old (bought from eBay - second hand mainboards) - obsolete PC parts that are used are risky, finding then NOS is nigh on impossible!

Also a note about HDDs, if I have to use a new HDD in repair (recommended), then I will be using solid state drives from now - this increases speed to the end user, but also relabilty due to less heat/voltage consumption and no moving parts.
