Super, Super Event (evenement)!!  Hey, you guys should do this every year!  Tongue

Was great seeing familiar faces again, and meeting some new ones... gonna have to check the list of names and forum usernames again for the who's who of Eurocade  Roll Eyes

Thankyou for bringing all your games and thanks to Everyone for (re)creating an amazing Arcade Atmosphere in Ridderkerk!!!  My Brother Quent, my Mom, and Bas also had a great time and a lot of fun, and we really appreciate you letting them join in on this cool experience!

Darnit i forgot to try a few game of Moon Patrol and Berzerk, but at least i got to play Ice Cold Beer for the first time... I wanted to play Mad Planets, which i played in 2008 in Philadelphia, very very cool machine, but it was not switched on...?

And what a simply awesome Eurocade Crew, all the Guys and Girls are!
André + Crew, I really appreciate the invitation, and the opportunity to try to break my current record on your Galaxian machine... it played great once again, it was perfect, but unfortunately i was not Wink
And Thank You Guys once again for the incredible Picture Frame you presented me after my record attempt!!
I was really surprised, flabbergasted  shock and very honoured by it, it looks awesome and i was amazed how you got the score in there so quickly lol.  I don't know where to hang it yet, because it's gonna look good everywhere Smiley 

THANKS!  Grin

Haha that's funny, especially since my cat's name is Poesz which i pronounce "poosh", which is how most Dutch people pronounce the english word "push"  Cheesy Tongue

Hi Art, welcome here  Wink
Thx!
What was the name of that game with all the red flags, I had never seen that one before  Roll Eyes
It's called Bubble Bobble hehehe Tongue
It was incredible to watch play (while talking) while you were blasting those aliens with seemingly no effort at all.
It's like there was a bee magnet on your rockets and they were all drawn to it screaming "please, Art, kill me please".
(exactely the opposite as when I play actually).
Okay i confess, i was using the secret heat-seeking missile mode.
I liked the fact that there was crowd gathering behind you to watch you play... I had'nt seen that in years, nice old school luna park feeling.
There was a crowd?! Shocked   I saw 2 or 3 ppl i thought that was all.  I didn't really see, i was trying to shoot all the aliens before they probed me. Smiley
I myself had the time to watch your game for a moment then try every single cab around twice, check in at the hotel, have a relaxingtime in the sauna, read the whole millenium trilogy and come back to watch a little bit more of your game and count the extra lives  Grin
Thanks for being there and congrats again!
Haha! You sure know how to make very efficient use of 1½ hours! Wink   Was nice to meet you, thankyou Chris(Chris)!


... Hey is it possible for someone to make a short list here of all (or at least most of) the ppl who were there, their nicknames, their names, their country or region, and their cabs at the event? Like for example as far as i could figure out, Muerto / Michael / Denmark/UK / (Gravitar?)?

That should be an easy job to do for André.

yeah, André told me that you actually had to do some math at the end of your game to get the nice endscore of 555.550 shown on the screen. Amazing.  roll eyes
"Moest nog even rekenen" ja... Smiley Well it wasn't calculus, but when you get to within for example 150 points you have to be careful not to shoot a purple and green in-flight, because that's 80+60 and you can't get 10 points.  And a red 100 + green 30 is no good either, coz you can't score 20!  Tongue   Math is actually a fun "exercise" to try to do while playing, because apparently (at least for me!) when you are playing a shooter or maze game and using your brain to avoid enemies, the part of your brain used for mathematical calculations is (partially) "occupied", which can make even simple math hard to do during a game!

I miss playing the cabs already lol

André congrats on your (holy) grail cab!! Cheesy

Hi guys!  Finally got signed up to DLF...

Thankyou ALL for a VERY enjoyable day at EUROCADE 2011!!!

André thx very much for inviting me!  I enjoyed finally meeting you!  It was great meeting everyone, and i'm happy to see that among other things the "Arcade & Pinball scene" is still so very much alive!  Special thanks to the organizers of Eurocade 2011, André Pieter Robin Etienne Erik simply excellent job, nice location, good food (next time a bit more plz lol), and what more can you say except that it was  Hot as Hell Twisted in Arcade Heaven!! 

I think it's absolutely great that you guys brought your cabs, pins, et al, from all around Europe, especially those who live so many hundreds of km away from us...  mucho respect, and thanks for letting everyone play on your games!!

Also to the girls behind the bar, thankyou for all the drinks & food!  I definitely appreciate ppl who volunteer to do such a job & especially all day long!

To everyone who was at the event, my compliments to you, you are what keeps a little bit of the Classic Gaming Era alive...  Wink

André your Galaxian cab is awesome and it played *superbly*, thx for letting me play on it!!  Also Ms. Pac-Man and Pac-Man played very nicely Ghost I love playing Galaxian & Ms. Pac-Man on an arcade cab!  You were right tho that the joystick on Pac is definitely better than the one on MsPac.  I won't comment on the few things that went wrong because there was so much that was perfect!    Robin i forgot to tell you yesterday Big thanks for your Namco Galaxian board so that i could play that final game; you're a great guy and i had fun talking with you!!  André when we both have some extra time i will definitely come back to your place for a record attempt or something, thanks for the invite!

Erik (ckong), thanks for your kind words - was great talking to you as well, you're a fun guy!
I actually died twice by accident, and twice on purpose to get that final score after 1½ hours. Grin
It's unfortunate that the flags stop (showing) after wave 48, i too would have liked to have seen what flag 50 or 100 would look like Tongue.  My game yesterday was around 150 flags total, and my personal record is 540 flags.

Hey is it possible for someone to make a short list here of all (or at least most of) the ppl who were there, their nicknames, their names, their country or region, and their cabs at the event? Like for example as far as i could figure out, Muerto / Michael / Denmark/UK / (Gravitar?)?

One final Thankyou, to André's wife, for driving me to the train-station!  I was so beat, my feet were sore and i was getting a bad headache, and not looking forward to walking 10 min. to the busstop and waiting for the (last?) bus; so i am very thankful to André for asking if i would like a ride to the station and to his wife for driving me.

All-in-all the feeling is that i didn't pay enough entry-fee & that i donated much too little for the event...
I think 4x the current entry-fee would still be a good deal  Cool  Sry i didn't have any cabs to bring with me (would have looked funny in the train and bus), and i do apologize for forgetting to bring drinks or snacks  Undecided 

I hope that this event can indeed be repeated annually, and that over the years it will grow!   Smiley

Damn, i forgot to ask for that doggy-bag  Tongue
