Hi Andi

No many collectors seem to look for this machine, maybe like me many don't remember the game but i think it's very cool looking with that crossbow mounted on front

Interesting about Exidy Games, look forward to hearing about those

Not sure where the pictures gone, they were still there 2 days ago

some pics here where it was originally, amazes me how it seemed level on floor one year, year later 1ft or more of rubble under machine, all plaster gone from wall, someone smashed the original monitor glass as i have small parts with arkwork left and Marquee was missing, i managed to get those and more pcb's, gun to rebuild but still haven't had time

I did make new sides, base and back panel, then came to get some sort  finish for chipboard but unable to find anything like that original satin finish so it been on hold, The artwork is printed direct onto the black finish too where the USA is sticker

I also had 3 different Guns, one in picture was Black cast metal stock, the brown one is what was on this machine but cracked, it's plastic of some sort, then you have the wooden one. I believe the wood stock of crossbow is from a real crossbow gun as the shoulder end cap has name and you see similar ones on ebay for sale

Still have all the machine in many parts, the chipboard was so damp by time i got it off that rubble pile and to van it just fell apart, original pcb was still inside though, also i have the exidy 440 multi rom set that was made a few years ago so can play all the games like Chiller

Just as you say, this game was not on my list to collect, it was in arcade before i played games and not heard of it till i was downloading games, flyers, cab images for mame but my first memory of playing arcade video game was Operation Wolf, probably attracted to it by the Machine Gun, so I know if I was older and seen Crossbow it would of played it, when it was sat there rotting away i had to save it as they are rare over here

At same time another collector had been trying to find the UK Electrocoin Crossbow Machine, finally one was found converted to Operation Wolf, he had pcb's, marquee's and the gun from this machine but no time to restore, so I restored that machine for him, another Vac Member had all my missing parts so it was good team effort to save them

Some more photo's of your machine inside would be useful for me and coin box door, I can make missing coin box door from photo of yours now i have bending machine and welder

It's so good to finally see one of these European made Machines.

I prefer it to the USA Exidy one and UK only had Electrocoin Goliath version

I rescued one from UK which fell apart as it was so damp, I have all the parts to restore it, just need time, before yours posted I was unable to find any photo's of this actual style cabinet, see my old post

WOW  :)

At last someone else with the same Ninja Warriors cab  ;D

I've been trying to find info out on this cab, all I had to go on was Negro on the Marquee and I find this thread, so cooool and now I know it's Italian cab too, it's the best design one of them all

I spotted the Deluxe Thunderblade on Marktplaats so joined up and made Sander an Offer for it, It was when I drove over to Amsterdam to collect it we had the chance to go to your Video Game Expo, so it was a double Gaming Weekend collecting Cab and meet some members here and play the machines  :)

I've just bought from ebay Space Ace for IBM PC which is on 5 1/4" disks  8)

Had a copy of this on the Amiga 500 back in the day, this looks to be the same game but IBM Version, Just built from my old parts a Pentium 3 500mhz PC base unit, has Intel PCB from and old Gateway, Awe64 ISA sound card, Creative Graphics Blaster PCI and the Creative DXR3 Full Motion Video Card and DVD-Rom drive, slot type from Pioneer 16x

Still have 5 1/4" Floppy drives I can install, just hope I kept date cable for it. got boxes of 5 1/4" disks too so I can copy them, keep original disks safe, but hopefully it will load onto hard drive, so not like Amiga having to swap disk every 30 seconds

Mainly built this PC for playing the original Alone In The Dark Trilogy, simply my Favourite games on the PC and the reason I built a 486DX33 with Sound Blaster back in the mid 90's just to play the original, I was working at a Computer Company back then Repairing them, Working my way through the games again, 1-3 before I move on to the 4th and 5th as I have never played those ones yet

Also I bought when it was first released, Dragon's Lair DVD-Rom from Digital Leisure because back then I had the Creative DXR2 card and 2x Panasonic Creative DVD-Rom Drive

Pleased we could do deal here

My last Kit for System 1, I will now have all 5 of them  :)

Thank you Toralf

Did you talk to a very handsome fat guy with a red Atari shirt ?

If yes, you have spoken to Luigi

I've corrected that for you  ;D

(but note that I changed shirts around the time the doors closed for the public (17:20)...before I was wearing a black shirt with some invaders guys ;) )


I will see when there are more pictures

But if you see another Fat older one with Goonies T-Shirt that was me

Boothill is amazing game with backdrop, very simple but me and Girlfriend had great fun playing each other
