the adhesive atari misses only you

I am of it' creating one for poing  
does it interest?  


Great Igor  Smiley

Once you'll finish the Atari logo, the idea would be to print few of them and of course share them with the community

What a job, Bruno!! Your hands turned that old crappy cab to a factory new Space Ace! Simply stunning!  shock  lol

The electronical solution you used is quite similar to the one I choose for my (still WIP) DL repro cab: autostarting Daphne with real laserdisc (mine is with MPEGs).
This make me think a pair of questions for you:

You (like me) don't want a Cinematronics score leds display between your speakers grilles, or an annunciator board under the control panel (european pride!!  Cheesy ) . So, I suppose that this time you (like me) are forced to play SA using the USA ROMs, and without being able to see your score and your remaining lives (no fat blue screens  Sad ).
Daphne 0.99.8 will probably support Euro versions of DL and SA, but to have the overlay emulated, it will be mandatory to use MPEGs (this was the first reason for me to choose not to use real LDs) . If you are going to convert your game to the Euro version in the future, which approach are you thinking about? And how do you select the skill level this time?

Congratulations again for the great work!


Igor: era per me la scansione dell'adesivo? Grazieee!!!! Continuo a non sapere come avrei fatto senza il tuo aiuto!
A presto!

Hi there

For those who still don' t know ... I have to inform that the "newest" upgrade of the Daphne.exe allows to play Space Ace EURO !!!!!!!! ( Mpeg)
The mighty Mark Br. made this REAL !!!!!!!
Also DL "EURO" (ATARI) and "Italian"(Sidam) are completely playable !!!!!!
And if you still don't have a good "PAL" Mpeg you can "simply" convert the NTSC captures with some ... "good" video converting/editing tools !!!!!!
( if I was able to do those conversions , then ALL of you could !!!!!  hehe ! )

Good playing with the FABULOUS "Euro" DL & SA !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back on this (I know this topic is very appreciated, thanx  )

I got this cab' with me three month ago in an exhibition / Pinball Collector close to Paris [France].

If you didn't see the post I've done about that exhibition, have a look at this post.

A lot of pictures of this Space Ace  Smiley It's good to see game back to life... on location ... with players on it  Kiss  Smiley

Got your stuff Marco, thanks  Kiss Kiss Kiss

It's time for me to switch for the US version into ... the EURO one! Yes, the one I used to play back in the Days!  Tongue
Hahh, it's good to finally see that menu back  Grin  arrow



...and more interesting... to see the score...at last!  arrow



On the first games, I'm not very good... I'll have to check if there are some timing differences between the US and Euro version?



Anyway...what a great job done by the Daphne team!  Kiss



Ok, one more thing is missing to make this cabinet complete... the Atari logo! Still no reproduction available somewhere by the way?

I'm glad to hear that, Bruno !
And I'm also happy to see your cab running "my" Space Ace - Euro !

Notice that:
*the attract mode is 100% the same as the one played by the VP932, so withOUT the very first trumpet of the beginning "fanfare"   Cheesy !
*the left-sided 3rd scene "Dodging the beams" (the one that begins with the StarPac landing on Borf's ship in the left side of the screen) begins with a shorter Dexter's scream "Ah-Haaa! Borf is here!".

CHECK and GET those differences between the EURO and the U.S., and you'll see I'm right  Wink Cool !

*The timing is slightly different from the U.S. revision A2, and it's basically due to the fact that A2 has an "incremental" difficulty in the moves timing, while the EURO revision has NOT ! It's a matter of 1/10 sec. only, but even if it really is a "small" difference Dex could easily die in this situation if the player is used with the EURO game and not with the U.S. one, so he could do a move too late Wink.
Vice versa the U.S. player could die playin' on the EURO making certain move too soon...  Grin
Finally, EURO Space Ace is considered less difficult than U.S. A2 !

AH !
... an Atari Logo ?

Regarding the Atari logo, already have it (see this topicWink ... but ... a little bit lazy to find someone who print it on the right material  Roll Eyes (you know that sticker seems very heavy and much thick than normal sticker). So maybe already available in the right material for sale somewhere? ... but I don't think so confused

Well, I cuold ask to Igor &/or Teo to know something more about the specific material.
When we know exactly what it is then we could do "something"...
Wink
There's an italian photo-works site that could print almost everything onto every known material...
I use to make them print for me repro-boxes for my VCS loose carts, banners, posters and even adhesives...
Maybe they could help Wink !

And what about the other adhesive(s) attached just under the loudspeaker grill(s) ?
Teo's cab has also this/those and if I remember well they're all written in german... just like in the very first Atari cab I saw 26 years ago Smiley !
