Title: [Lazy Road Trip] - 6 classics games

Special Road Trip this time for me, the biggest one (6 cabinets) and the fastest (0 km).

As Paul uses a "cheap" shipping company it was cheaper for me to receive them than going to Germany to pick up them (van renting + gaz...) so let's start!!!!
 
Step 1:

The beginning, 3 big and heavy pallets:

We had to move them quickly in the house as it started to rain but...

Jesus Christ... This is it... 6 cabinets from Paul... I already know some of them, but I don't know what are the six games you got   :P

I'm waiting the pictures... and I'm already ready to cry (jealous mode=ON)  :P ;)

First problem: the cabs arrived faster than I thought and I still had on the gaming room a Hard Drivin' cabinet that I want to sell (very large and heavy cabinet), so I had to put this cabinet outside near an old gaz pump I found few month ago, good place for a driving simulator  ;D :

Yes it is "almost" working, there is a problem with the wheel, don't worry it is protected from the rain (for the moment).

Now I come to think of it, this thread is a bit of a bummer, as I was expecting 6 roadtrips, but I get none.  :'(

Well, these games were located few weeks in Germany, but now... they are in France  :P
But following all the cabinets imported by Paul, the European arcade community will change a little bit  ::) ;D

Great cabinets! Waiting for all those beauty to be delivered (i mean, the exact day of the delivery) should be a pain :)

did you sleep the night before?  :D


Title: Re: [Lazy Road Trip] - 6 classics games
Post by: SeTTleR on September 13, 2010, 12:37:42 PM
Wow, nice catch! I really love those Nintendo Cabs. And of course all the rest of your cabs  :D Impressive collection!

Wait, are we December 24 already? drool... drool... drool...  ;)
What a collection! congrats! (+I also spotted a gorgeous Crystal Castles cab in the background of one of your pic).
Let us know about the restorations, I can't wait to see the inside of those beasts.

Post by: gyruss on September 13, 2010, 06:40:14 PM
Let's hope you will get all your games running soon. I don't really like the bulky design of the I-robot cabinet, but it's very cool to own the first polygon game ever. Never played it though, must be a blast!


Title: Re: [Lazy Road Trip] - 6 classics games
Post by: atarimania on September 13, 2010, 08:42:11 PM
Yes I was very excited to receive them :)

Next step (this week-end I think) :
Open all the cabs and test them.

I already know that the frogger is working fine, I started the DK Jr. and the I, Robot, they start but the I think that the PCB are faulty as the games reboot...

I, Robot is one of my favourite EVER games. It is simply an AMAZING game. It is up there with Gravitar, Major Havoc and Starwars for complete awesomeness.

One of the best games ever made. It's in my top 5.

Nice tribute to a game not really 'mainstream' :-\

I also spotted other Atari games by the way... cannot remember now.
