Super nice video, I enjoyed it a lot.

Man, like Sonic 1992, I wanna do another road-trip. Last one is 3 month ago, picking up 3 *cough* pinball-machines. 3 more month to wait till my brother and I can even make a start with his games-basement.

Enough about me, Bruno, I know of a guy in the south of the Netherlands sitting on 107 (!) sit-down-race cabs (yes, that's one big warehouse he's got there). I promissed to alert you if I saw something that even resembled an Out Run PCB of some sorts. On the photo's the cabs look really good.

Please drop me a mail since I seeem to have lost your e-mail adress, when switching to a new PC a few weeks back. Sorry for being off-topic.

Yop, don't forget to post few pictures  ::) ;)

I agree with you... Doing a roadtrip is great, I mean it gives something special on the cabinet itself... that make it more *special* and it adds a story on it. Hours & km on the road don't matter... Fun & 'ArcadeLifeStyle'... all the way  :P ;D

Who'll do the next roadtrip here ?  ;) 8)

I don't want to give myself bad luck by posting ahead of time (look at what happened with that Professor Pacman I thought I was getting!).
When the games are in my house I'll post all the pics.
The only clue I will give is that they are pretty big games (not as big as the Galaxian Theatre though!!).

It was in 2005... it was the last time I've seen this beautiful R360 (and of course played it)  :'(

It was in London, at the trocadero in the funland arcade :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/preview2008/ext13.jpg)

It's a great game... it is in the 'must have list' of many crazy collectors  :P ;)

I have no clue about a R360 to sell yet  :'(

See ya Andrea

Is it Daytona Special ?  :arrow:

(http://img1.uplood.fr/mamu/4quv_dscf3003.jpg)

So we both played the same game :) The only R360 I ever seen was at the Trocadero ;)
The first time I've  "tested" it was in the 1997 or 1998.
As for the Daytona I'm fine with the 4 players version too ;) Lol!!!

See ya Bruno

Waahahahaha, amazing they kept it that long !!

I played that very machine too. It's a miracle it is (was) still working after I played it :P

I guess it was around 98 for me too.

...and back from hell!  ;D

For some reasons, the specific yoke overlay for that game is not available! Tried many shops at the time but no luck! (it was on TOG in the section 'future product' looong time agon... but finally didn't happened as far as I now?!)
But I badly need it, see how the yoke on my cabinet looks like  :oops:  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/jedi/return_of_the_jedi_yoke_overlay_1.jpg)

Yeah... a lame black sticker has been applied on it!

Well, I still had the hope that one day the 'jedi' overlay will be available.
Fortunately, Atarimania found years ago a NOS! He scanned it, and Etienne vectorized it!
I totally forgot that story ... until Etienne gave me a gift during the last Eurocade meeting  :-*  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/jedi/return_of_the_jedi_yoke_overlay_2.jpg)

After cutting one, here's how it looks once applied  :)  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/jedi/return_of_the_jedi_yoke_overlay_3.jpg)

Well, I was a little bit lazy on this... I didn't remove the back adhesive already in place, and because the print provided by Etienne was printed on a 'not as thick as the original', you can spot few micro bubbles, and it's a little bit shiny, but guys, it's really anodyne!  8)  :arrow:

Anyway, who cares? Here's the game room in 'play mode'... too dark too see...  ;D  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/jedi/return_of_the_jedi_yoke_overlay_4.jpg)

I'm joking! It looks really great now! :-*  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/jedi/return_of_the_jedi_yoke_overlay_5.jpg)

Me happy... and got some motivation to play this game again!  ;D :spaceace:

Nice !

I know its just printed on standard vinyl, but at least untill there is a print on the correct material is available, this looks way better than a black yoke  ;)

Funny thing was that it was already waiting one year here, and i forget it last eurocade  :D ;D
