Title: Retro gamer exhibition in Budapest
Post by: Belike on April 03, 2011, 10:19:28 PM
A few weeks ago the organizers of this event asked me to show some of my cabs on this event, but after a lot of hesitating, I decided to say NO to them. :twisted:
However, I was curious about the exhibition, so we visited it today and it was real interesting.
There were tons of handhelds, retro consoles, computers, etc..
I made some pics with my handy, sorry for the bad quality:

Never played on the A8, but can't wait to try it out. ;)
This event had a very bad publicity, this was the 3rd time they organized it and I've never heard of it.(they called me about the cabs).

Looks like a nice exibition,

by the way , i love your T shirt !  :spaceace:

The logo was made by "Awesome Chris", originally we designed it to Eurocade, but I was unable to wait wearing it until then. ;D
A second one is waiting for my Zaccaria Brother of course, just send me the measures. ;)

Exact measures in centimeters please! ;D
(http://www.asapshirt.com/images/tshirt_size.gif)
I would like to make one also for your little assistant, so catch him with a tape measure. ;D


Title: Re: Retro gamer exhibition in Budapest
Post by: Etienne MacGyver on April 04, 2011, 11:03:13 AM
I am not familiar with that kind of measuring, so i took out my current shirt  :D

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/shirt1.jpg)  This says 68 Cm.

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/shirt2.jpg) And this says 70 Cm. (although i would not mind if that is going to be 72 or something)

I will try to catch my little helper tonight ! (if he does not run away  ;D)

EDIT:

i have catched the little rascal  ;D

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/shirt3.jpg)  This says 46Cm.

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/shirt4.jpg) And this says 34 Cm.

and he is growing, so maybe 50 x 45 will be a better size ?

thx for the report, bela!

out of curiosity: why did you decide against taking a cab there?

Post by: Belike on April 04, 2011, 01:58:11 PM
thx for the report, bela!

out of curiosity: why did you decide against taking a cab there?
The reasons:
-My cabs are not tested in a continous 12 hours run (X2 for 2 days)
-Most of the cabs don't have freeplay and I didn't want anybody to touch anything inside the cabs
-In Hungary most of the people have much lower intelligence to take care and respect these beauties
-I didn't hear anything about this exhibition earlier, I wanted to see it with my own eyes first

However, I had very good impressions about this event, maybe I will change my mind until the next one. ;D

And the Shirts are in !

Thanks Bela (Again  ;))

I used the shirt on sunday, and after i came home, my little helper went upstairs, and came back with his shirt in his hand,

Dad, i want to wear this shirt too, then we have the same !

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/zaccshirts/1.jpg)

So i took the opportunity to photograph the 2 zaccaria guy's  :D

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/pics/zaccshirts/2.jpg)

They really fit well, i was not familiar with the measuring, i just know "S - M - L - XL - XXL"

I love the shirts !

Grandma, Grandma, i want to wear this !
It's my "Games shirt", its the same as daddy's !


he was so proud with his shirt that he wanted to show grandma this  ;D

So my mother helped him dress, and he said;
No, no grandma not the small logo in the front, i want the big picture in the front  :D

After i came home, and listening this story, i could not resist to take some pics  ;)

This little freak is the best Arcade-Freak ever !
I'll never forget how we played both the Star-Wars Cockpit ...
He was so upset about all the games and what was up there in Ridderkerk ...
I remember my own son .. but now he is "too old" for those things .. (little idiot) ..
You are NEVER to old for having fun !
