eh ... he's building an upright cabinet for a gameboy cartridge? Huh?

hehe, yes he is ! hahah

It was my initial idea for the mini zacc that i wanted to use my GB advange SP to make it alive, but i just could not part with my GBA  Grin

Maybe i can do it in the future, i mean, they get cheaper and cheaper second hand...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes idea  arrow  Cheesy

yes, and these games weren't developed by nintendo but by a company called Ikegami:

According to some sources in the early 80s, Ikegami developed a number of arcade games as a subcontractor to Japanese video game companies. Among the games they may have developed are Computer Othello, Block Fever, Monkey Magic, Congo Bongo, Popeye, Donkey Kong, Radar Scope, Sheriff, Space Fever, Space Firebird, Space Demon, Heli Fire, Sky Skipper, Space Launcher and Zaxxon.At that time, computer programs were not recognized as copyrightable material. According to these sources, Ikegami proceeded to sue Nintendo for unauthorized duplication of the Donkey Kong program code for the latter's creation of Donkey Kong Junior (1983, Tokyo District Court), but it was not until 1989 that the Tokyo High Court gave a verdict that acknowledged the originality of program code. In 1990, Ikegami and Nintendo reached a settlement, terms of which were never disclosed.

Guess that also cancels out Sky Skipper.

Paul had that setup, in a red cabinet, one of the earliest model.
I contacted him few months ago, because I really want an other red cabinet ... but it was already sold  oppps...

next in line would probably be radarscope, followed by donkey kong ii (but only if i managed to find a complete silkscreend art package from rich's first run. i'll have a lookout for those no matter what!)
