You are wrong about the control panel not being original, although it is painted and hacked to use a spinner. I think I might have a picture of how it looked before on an old harddisk.


Arch, you'll make me happy if you share this photo after/before, info on dimension and other details about the cab on the forum, not oly in PM.

That Cab it's a revisit version of a regular Model Racing general purpose Cab....and, yes: it's difficolt to find info about this Italian factory. It's the less documented.

Anyway: that "mini" (or Cabaret?) version came out from Gilberto Corretti's pencil (Italian designer), during 1982. In that periord MR was in business difficultis, and was try same way to solve it. The mini cab, was less expensive than regular one.

It is probably a physiological decline.
After years of fantastic thread products, the forum's leaders are quiescent now.
This for several reasons... one was exposed by Bela: saturation!
Unfortunately, we can not all be like Bruno: we will arrive, sooner or later, to no longer accommodate Cab in our space ... not everyone can move house or enlarge it only for the hobby.
Then, there are other variables reasons, as mentioned by Etienne and others: personal situations, family problems, works busy, lack of time (also to document on the forum).

The most important capital of DLF is the repertoire of the old topic, from which get inspiration for their work.

..since few time, I started to read "Arcade Lifstile" from last page. Always I find news and good ideas for my Cab work, without having to create new writings.

I'm putting in order my PCB.
Some of that (double or more lay PCB..) lack of standoff, other need to replace it.

Any tips about?
... better silicon or metal?
For a general ("quite universal".. Roll Eyes) use, wich measure do you suggest?


22  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: not yet ZAC OFF LIMITS on: July 12, 2016, 01:13:54 PM

On the 2nd floor: OFF LIMITS design, tons of PCBs, never used "SUPER OFF LIMITS" marquees (a new version of OFF LIMITS never produced or produced in very small quantities)


 Shocked

..the pics tell more about an abandoned house than a old Electronic Company Headquarter...

..It's a pity that the bigs Italian arcade factory (ZZZ, Model Racing..) have preserved nothing like this small T.B.M. have done..

...Great found!

As (..other great game for '80 Home Computer..) "Boulderdash", first borned like a Home Computer Game.. a unique strategy (as chess style...not too close to Arcade gamestyle..) game,
but never ported in the "coin machine world"..


Actually there was a Boulder Dash arcade cabinet from Exidy. But that was a bit like the NeoGeo-cabs I guess. Still cool cab.

Yes, I konw..

<<.."a unique strategy (as chess style...not too close to Arcade gamestyle..) game, but never ported in the "coin machine world" >>  it's refer to Archon.. Italians sentences use the "tacit subject"..sorry...


  
24  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: Computer games which deserve an original dedicated arcade? on: July 09, 2016, 01:28:41 PM
But this cab is a butchered Wizard of Wor for sure.

..okey, Tyrem you win  Kiss.

But, my personal ans to : "Computer games which deserve an original dedicated arcade?" remain : ARCHON

As (..other great game for '80 Home Computer..) "Boulderdash", first borned like a Home Computer Game.. a unique strategy (as chess style...not too close to Arcade gamestyle..) game,
but never ported in the "coin machine world"..

I'd like very much a ARCHON porting, to play it with the powerfull of Arcade's performance (..the time past and now play the C=64 game it's more for nostalgia than satisfaction..):
.. for me ARCHON deserve it.

For completeness, (ideally) I say, the PC Game (..so '90 game) that deserve a original arcade is "The Lost Vikings"... but I prefer to stay in the '80...so: ARCHON


25  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: Computer games which deserve an original dedicated arcade? on: July 06, 2016, 03:22:28 PM
Holy fuck. As much as I like the idea they butchered a Wizard of Wor for this?!

Probably not.
Archon it's a mix of action and strategy.
It's a real "chess battle" (..perhaps it's ispired the PC game..) in arcade style.
..I spend many afternoon when I was child in first '80, to try to win a game against C64.... really hard I remember..
 
26  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: Computer games which deserve an original dedicated arcade? on: July 06, 2016, 09:15:35 AM

Yes... that was C=64 ver. ...Have you never play it?
27  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: Computer games which deserve an original dedicated arcade? on: July 05, 2016, 01:37:24 PM
Archon

28  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: MAN VS SNAKE released 24th of june on: June 24, 2016, 06:02:48 PM
Thanks to "Arcade world" revival, about 25 later, now I know the epical record of Enrico Zanetti, not so far away where I live.
