Title: Sidam Space Ace
Post by: ANY on November 08, 2007, 04:26:14 AM
Hi guys

This is my new toy, a Sidam Space Ace.
I got it in good condition, just without ldp and disc....
I have a disc and a couple of Philips player, unfortunatly none of the ldp i have is working and after I spend aroud 24 hours (in 4 days.....) i give up (for now.... :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:  MALEDETTI  PHILIPS)  and installed a Sony ldp 3600D and a pc motherboard inside the cab, to drive it.
The result is a fully working game.
I have a spare board with DL romset, so just a board and disc swap and I can play the other game.
Later I'll burn a combo romset and install a switch to select the game near the  ldp so I will just need to open the ldp door, flip a switch and swap the disc to do the trick.

Some random pics....

No news on this because it work now with Teo's interface, when i'll have a full spare week i'll try to fix that stupid Philips player.
I'm working on my Space Ace right now, but I've done only the first side (more or less).

See You ANY

Congrats!!  Very Nice Space Ace...   Jealous here!!!  :wink:  :oops:  :D  I would love to have such an unusual looking Space Ace in my collection!!  I think the Sidam design looks more unique than the "usual"!

Great Job!!!!  :spaceace:  :spaceace:  :spaceace:

Hi Bruno,
the video works. It does not work on some PCs for some unknown reason.
Try upgrading your flash web player to the latest version.

What is a sidam style? On this side of the pond, I would call that a cabaret. Same thing, or something different?
