Good day !

I became member of this site, because i would like to ask if there is anyone out here, who knows more about the electronics, used in the boadgeme 'Omega Virus'. A friend of mine has recently acquired this game, but the computer appears to be not working. Are there any schematics out there, so i can try and fix this ?
Thanks for reading, and best regards from Belgium,
Rob

If you click on the game page, there are a set of forums for people who want to discuss that game specifically. They're probably not very busy, but you'll have the best shot at finding someone who knows the answer to your questions.

    Likely a stupid recommendation, but I'll say it anyway -- make sure you have new batteries in. My copy had good batteries in it and the computer didn't work, put in new batteries and it magically came to life.

Along the same lines of check-first: make sure the contacts are free of corrosion, the batteries are inserted correctly, and the batteries make good contact.

Also, I don't recommend keeping the batteries inside the bay between sessions. Store them in a container with the game. Batteries can leak if left in and the acid will ruin the electronics if it gets inside the case.
