31st of August 2012, D-1 before the ...

(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/news/EC2_transpa_banner_BIG.png)

The cabinet I will bring to the 'party' will be PLEIADS by Irecsa (Spanish version 'licensed' of the game).
After moving few cabinets in the V1 game room, that Pleiads shouldn't be too much difficult to extract by now  :roll: :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_1.jpg)

But.. why to bring this specific game?
First, there's is a kind of 'love' story between that Pleiads and the Netherlands.
That cabinet was operated in Belgium at the beginning of its live. At a certain point of time (early 2000 approx), this game was purchased for the Video Game museum in Mechelen, still in Belgium. The museum no longer exist, but there are sill few pages available here (http://soc.kuleuven.be/onderwijs/pop/videogames/museum.php).
When the museum closed, some games (including Pleiads) were purchased by a collector in... the Netherlands.

In 2008, I was looking for a Space Wars cabinet, and finally found one on ebay. The seller also mentioned a Pleiads, I game I really enjoyed back in the days!
I cannot resist to take that one too!  :P  :arrow:

(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/news/swpl.jpg) (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=454.0)

So the game is mine since 2008, and It has been restored to his full glory days since...  :arrow:

(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/news/pleiads-done.jpg) (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=489.0)

I thought it would be funny to bring back once again, for one day, that Pleiads, in the Netherlands...but this time, fully operational!  ;)
...oh, and the second reason for this choice was ... the cabinet was not too far from the game room exit, and it's a small cabinet, easy to move!  ;D

Ok, you know all now! Here's the beast before loading it in the car :

Once loading, I see the restoration wasn't totally finished!?  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_3.jpg)

My first WIP in a car  ;D  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_4.jpg)

Oh, and I'm also preparing the DLF/ALS, ready to be displayed for the second time  :)  :arrow:

1st of September 2012, this is it!

Departure in few minutes...

3 hours to drive? Pfff... let's say close to my house!  ;D  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_7.jpg)

No traffic jam, easy road, nice music... and here we are already!

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_8.jpg)

Preparation of the European Game Room of the day still in progress. After a warm welcome with the team/collector already there, we put my Pleiads in the row of games! We also fix the official ALS/DLF flag on a wall.

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_9.jpg)

Suddenly, the police enter the place?!

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_10.jpg)

I don't understand NL but I think Ckong explains them that the guns from the Wester Gun are not dangerous!  ;D

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_11.jpg)

...and we don't plan to ride that bike on the road!  ;D  :arrow:

Hi & Atarimania installing the Warlords  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_13.jpg)

On the other room (the bar), there is an impressive setup for the 'climax' of the day...

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_15.jpg)

Aart van Vliet, official World Record holder on Galaxian will attempt to set a NEW WORLD RECORD at Eurocade 2012here, today, @ Eurocade 2012  :o :-* !

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_14.jpg)

He is really kind. I took this opportunity to ask many questions about Galaxian, which is in my TOP 3 games all time! He showed me few tricks, this safe spot for instance :

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/Galaxian_Safe_Spot.jpg) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaViTEoF4Wc)
(click on picture to watch the video)

Watching him 'mastering' the game is totally incredible! Each shoot hits a bee! After practicing so much the game, he knows how the enemies react! How they move, how they become more aggressive! They are so much things to say about Galaxian, wooow!!! Awesome!  :-* :-* :-*

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_16.jpg)

He also watched me playing...but after my poor game, I felt like these guys  :oops:  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_27.jpg)

Ok, I let him quiet... His new WR (he's already the WR owner!) attempt will start l8ter...

Still in the 'bar area', the famous mini PONG  :)  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_22.jpg)

Very well done, and perfectly playable!

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_23.jpg)

Congratulation of this great job, Etienne!

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_24.jpg)

Belike vs Darth Nuno ...or Darth Nuno vs Belike?!   ::) :P ;D

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_25.jpg)

Back in the main room, new cabinets in the place... ChrisChris got with him my future cabinet his JUNO FIRST...

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_17.jpg)

...he also got with him SuperUlly who got himself with him MAD PLANETS ...

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_18.jpg)

...but unfortunately DOA (Death On Arrival)  :'(

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_19.jpg)

Some sounds problem on the JUNO FIRST  :? ...but repair on progress?!  ;)

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_darth_nuno_20.jpg)

Yeah! Sounds are back... it would be a shame to play JUNO FIRST without the sounds... they are so amazing!  :-*

Wow, I didn't expect to see a fully Hang On DX working again! Last time it was at Fun Spot USA, and before that, it was when I had the same age than the kid on it  ;)

At the entrance, the Donkey Kong for the high score contest :

The cabinet is connected to this power protection unit...maximum precaution!

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_2012_nuno_16.jpg)

The game is recorded via a camera on a tripod, but also broadcasted worldwide on the web, via a mini USB camera located in the speaker hole of the cabinet.
A giant screen shows us what's on the screen. So we don't have to disturb Aart while his game.

Back on the main room...and the terrible addictive "Space Zap" :

Back from the hotel...Aart is going well :)

... 864480 PTS so far!!!  :o :o :o!!!  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_nuno_1.jpg)

We stayed a long time with Hi & Atarimania, watching him doing his score! He was in a kind hypnotic trance! Galaxian is not an easy game! You've to take risks all the time if you want to score high... mostly each time the yellow flagship diving with its 2 red escorts...and that's he did... man! So focused he was... but unfortunately ... it ends at 1.455.530 PTS

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/meeting/eurocade_2012/eurocade_nuno_4.jpg)

Phenomenal score! Incredible performance, thanks for this demonstration, Aart!  :)

Great pics Bruno ! my son lost the first game we played on Western Gun but he totally smoked me later that night ! They learn fast ! :):)

And isnt it brilliant how a game that was new in the year that I was 7 years old, is still fun to play now that I have a 10 year old son..... :spaceace:
