Hi guys

This is my new toy, a Sidam Space Ace.
I got it in good condition, just without ldp and disc....
I have a disc and a couple of Philips player, unfortunatly none of the ldp i have is working and after I spend aroud 24 hours (in 4 days.....) i give up (for now.... Twisted  Twisted  Twisted  MALEDETTI  PHILIPS)  and installed a Sony ldp 3600D and a pc motherboard inside the cab, to drive it.
The result is a fully working game.
I have a spare board with DL romset, so just a board and disc swap and I can play the other game.
Later I'll burn a combo romset and install a switch to select the game near the  ldp so I will just need to open the ldp door, flip a switch and swap the disc to do the trick.

Some random pics....











And a Video  roll eyes

It was find in Novara (If i remember well) 2 years ago with one (Sidam) Dragon's Lair and one more (Sidam) Space Ace Wink

I'm quite sure it was not the cab you have played in the past... Smiley

I still need to repair the Philips Ldp, but other thing was around my house this week.... see my new post  Tongue

Thanks Bruno

No news on this because it work now with Teo's interface, when i'll have a full spare week i'll try to fix that stupid Philips player.
I'm working on my Space Ace right now, but I've done only the first side (more or less).

See You ANY

Hi Bruno,
the video works. It does not work on some PCs for some unknown reason.
Try upgrading your flash web player to the latest version.

What is a sidam style? On this side of the pond, I would call that a cabaret. Same thing, or something different?
