Oh, I almost forgot: Thanks to Liquidx for posting this one, and special thanks to Atarimania who has been translating back and forth between the seller and me.  Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace for Franck !

So, if anyone that is a bit closer is willing to get this PP, it's available !!! I hope it get's rescued by someone, it looks really nice (I got 4 pics if anyone is interested).

unfortunately, it's as far out from my place as it is from yours, so too far for my blood (because i'd need a trailer or a van as well). but why not post those pictures here anyway just for archive purposes or to set a trail for someone else  Wink

Sorry to hear that André, I know you really wanted that one  Sad
I will of course post on this forum if I hear anything regarding a PP cab close to NL (or to Germany for Ully).

Yeah, thanks again for that Etienne !!!!!

Actually, the "puzzle" did help me a lot, and that was preventing a road trip of 1700km and discovering that the PP wouldn't fit in the South of France....!!! Now THAT would have hurt even more !!

About the space: well, I will need some space for the Video Pinball anyway so that's a good thing !

I have to give a lot of credits to the seller too, he was very reasonable about it (although of course also disappointed). We handled it as gentlemen and I paid his E-bay costs, which of course was the least I could do...

About Alpha1's Jap cockpits: Well, apart from probably costing (about) the same for the trip (and I think Olly may want a bit more for it then I had won the French PP for....which makes sense) I'm going to be honest here and say that I think the Namco version is not as nice looking as the Atari is. I really like the shape of the Atari much better. I also like the "cockpit" better, that is the steering wheel (even though the Jap steering wheel is more realistic, I really like the over-sized American styled Atari wheel). But the entire dashboard looks a bit.....I don't know, just not my style....

BUT I am first to admit that they are cool _because_ they are the original Namco version.

About PP: as usual, I do a lot of "homework" when I know that I am going to buy/get a new machine. (I already knew the main problems with SW before I even brought it home Smiley )

If you are a bit interested there is a load of (technical) documentation from the Irish factory right here:
http://www.alsarcade.com/Andy/arc/atari/index.html

Scroll all the way down and there are some great docs about PP there.
Interesting stuff, lot's of problems with the hardware (as we already knew).

OK here are the pics:

The machine has been in a medical center for a long time. They moved the machine and then it stopped working.That's when the seller took it home before it got trashed....
It's blowing a fuse on power-up.  (There's some hacked on diode-bridge visible on the power supply, I wouldn't be surprised if there was simply some wires shorting.....)









Replacing the plexi is easy enough, if needed I can help provide a repro.

that seems to be in pretty good condition - really a shame that it is so far away and can't be transported in a normal car!
