Thanks Ully & Vnera!
...maybe it was just a teenager issue: back in the days, I was just afraid to play with a teddy bear in front of the cool chicks at the arcade. Cheesy
I might have a second opinion on the game itself when I'll play it a little bit more in the privacy of my livingroom (which is not exactly crowded with cool chicks at the moment).

Indeed, congratulations are in order. This cab seems to be in very, very good condition, you must feel very lucky. And although I don't get the gameplay either, the cab is stunning, a very nice sight in every gameroom.

I think I left a sock in your SW cockpit, could you check when you wake up?

Very cool catch, Crystal Castles has one of the nicest cabs ever, though the game sucks  Grin

or does anyone have other information, or a cc cab with a label from ireland?

Hm, I'm pretty sure that ours is irish built, but I'd have to check to be sure.

Atari Ireland did not make any Crystal Castles cabinets. They were all imported from the USA. You will see they were built for Europe however and have the correct 220-240 volt markings on the serial sticker.

I knew you were going to say this  Grin

No way, after all the hassle we had with this game I will take it to the grave with me.
After all, bad gameplay is alright, I hardly ever play the games anyway  Grin Grin Grin

Not possible, I hardly ever open the roller shutter Cheesy

And I decided not to go near that bloody damn PP of hell since the monitor decided that he'd have enough and started spraying funny sparks  Tongue
Not because I am afraid of the sparks but because I am afraid to rip the game apart with my bare hands  Angry Grin

Fortunately I just managed to repair our Speedway, so who needs PP anyway  Grin http://www.marvin3m.com/arcade/cspeed.htm

Took a look, US built indeed, never noticed this. The sticker also looks different, it's not a silver one, looks a bit like a xerox.
I wonder why they didn't bulit them in Ireland? Interestingly the manual speaks of irish built machines for some parts.
Maybe noone except Ully was interested in the game so they thought it'd be cheaper to ship a handfull of machines over the pond  Grin

Mad isn't it. I have noticed only Lunar Lander and Crystal Castles are like this so far. There may be a few others, but nearly everything I have checked since Asteroids onwards was built in Ireland also.
