This short roadtrip is official over!

PS.
When i was there i spoke to Dean about eBay, and bad traders... and i must say, he tops the list!!
Long story short, he normally only shipe to England, but a guy in Austria?? had been buggin him about 2 PCBīs, and after a week Dean shipped 2 fully working PCBīs.... 1 week later he was contacted by the buyer, that said both PCBīs warent working... so Dean said, send them back, ill pay the postage and refund your money..... then for i cant remember how long he didnt hear anything from the guy, he then opens a case on ebay saying he didnt return the PCBīs after he send the money back..... then, you wonīt believe what happens.... the guy send a parcel back to Dean, so he can get a tracking number, that he can show to eBay, so they can close the case believing everything is fine....!!!!! hereīs what Dean received:

(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bs/bs 014.jpg)

Yes! a box with an empty wine bottle in it!

So, donīt trust this guy:

You better watch out, in Holland the politicians have plans to give fines up to 25000 Euro to people who show pics on the internet of criminals that (f.i.) broke into your house !!!
Yes, because it's a "crime" to violate someone's privacy !!!!!
Yes....politicians are the smartest people in the world as we all know....  :twisted: :evil: :twisted:

Anyway, back on topic: The UK "scene" better watch out, there's a viking hunting your grounds, and he's looking for some fresh blood !  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Cool catch !!

anyway, congratulations on your first uk-based catch. i personally don't know that game, but it looks huuuge in your transporter. must weigh at least a ton, right?

Good looking beast, congrats. ;)
Btw. that jerk also ripped me off, I bought a "fully working" Crazy Kong pcb from, but it has no sound and never responded to my mails. :-\

So, donīt trust this guy:
(http://www.opdenkelder.com/muerto/arc/bs/bs 015.jpg)

Indeed, don't trust this Austrian guy. I once bought an as original advertised Phoenix PCB from him. Except .... it wasn't original, it was a German bootleg!! He had put up a false photo on Ebay.

He told me to piss off, the game was working, wasn't it? Since then I trust Austrians even more less than I already did before.

But nice catch Michael, great looking game.

I suspect the Spanish to be behind the riots, because if we would win from England (which can't be that hard really) and the Spanish would loose their practice match, we would be the nr.1 football team in the world for the first time in history. :D  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;) ;)

They should have played tonight at Wembley....alas...

Seriously....don't like what's going on there....I won't comment further on them here because I don't want to derail your thread ! :)

Ah, cool. And the Neo Geo looks sweet! Do you have a multi cartridge?


Title: Re: [Roadtrip] Battle Shark - my first one in the UK
Post by: Muerto on August 11, 2011, 05:15:18 PM
no, not yet..... iīm somehow in doubt...
Of course i would like to have a 150 games in 1 cartridge, it will make it a lot easier, but then again, i rather have the original cartridge, and just swap them out when needed.....
