nice to see some classic games out in the wild again. this is going to be interesting to find out how much they get played in comparison to those plastic boxes cabs

Sega Aero City cabs are solid steel  :spaceace: Don't be such a hater  ;D I dare you to lift one  :o

Very likely I will be at the expo tomorrow afternoon/early evening (after work).
I'll have to bring (and fix...) Rob's Centipede trackball there ...

And some other stuff. I'll be working in 020 anyway so it's not too much of a problem :P

Good, then you can tell us if it is anything good and if it is worth going there.

Was there late afternoon. Installed the Centipede trackball. Works fine.
The monitor was out of sync though, fixed that.

Played Vanguard (for the very first time on a real arcade version !) and have to admit I was a bit disappointed !!!!
Love the voice and the sound though...

Played Badlands for the first time to: great !

While I was there, the Ms.Pac Man died !!! It showed a flashing "BAD" on screen (maybe a bad ram or rom ?)

Anyway, by Rob's request I had brought along the Ms.Pac (converted to Super Ms.Pac, or something like that) board that I had lent from him so I installed that one instead.

So, this shows exactly why I don't want to put my machines up there.....although of course they may also die "at home"....

The HUGE Jet Rocket wasn't working (notice the line around it).

The IKTAG stuff wasn't working when I was there, did get a pic though. Entrance is 5 Euro.

There were a good number of people considering the time of day.

It was good to see my Centipede Hi-score is still on Rob's machine, let's see if someone can beat it :D

shame the photographer took a picture of only the face and hands of people playing, instead of a person playing a clear visible arcade cabinet, f.i. from the back.
