Wow... more than three years and half later  Wink

Ops, I don't remember what was wrong with that monitor. It has been repaired but I got new problems with it, and it has been changed by a brand new TV CRT  Wink

Regarding the roms, I had the idea to get a lot of Tron spare parts, and one day I got the opportunity to catch that set of roms, of course useless for that ram error  Undecided

Back on this one.

There is a special door on that Tron model (in order to have access to the coins) but I didn't find an other one yet  Embarrassed
So, I'll hide that HUGE opening until I'll catch the real door.  arrow



A simple plate of metal will be fine :



Let's paint it + make holes :





On location  arrow



The back door have to be black of course.

Oh my god, back on this topic  Roll Eyes Tongue

OK, following this post : "Disney starts Tron publicity in a _really_ nice way !! ", I got the Comic Con International: San Diego Exclusive Flynn Lives t-shirt!!!  Kiss

Here's the story :

The t-shirt was obtained after finding Flynn's Arcade by taking part in a scavenger hunt thru Downtown San Diego.
The arcade- filled with working games from the 80s- was recreated to promote the new Tron Movie (Tron Legacy) due in theaters next year.
After playing the video games, the back wall of the arcade opened to a hall which contained design sketches and a life-size replica of a speeder-bike prop from the movie.
Shirts and posters (used in the scavenger hunt) were given out after the viewing.

Too bad I wasn't there, but I got THE T-shirt  Cool  arrow



Can I beat the 'spirit' of Flynn???



Arghhh no! Flynn is a programmer... and even better, the TRON programmer  Wink

And here's one of the two hidden codes written on that t-shirt... only viewable under a black light  arrow



S LASH
? What does it means ?

Wow, thanks for that picture, Oliver  Kiss

It's the first time I see the same model than the one I own.

In order to be complete on this topic, and just in case you've missed it, I got this cabinet with me in an exhibition :



Surprisingly the game had a lot of success : Tron 'the game' is not a *mainstream* game (it's not Pac Mac or Donkey Kong), but people there were very curious to try the all-famous Tron cabinet  Kiss

All the story on the following topic  arrow

It's awesome the merchandising around the new Tron movie to come  Kiss. It's so 'arcade' oriented... what's better than that Roll Eyes Tongue

Ok, so what's this on my cabinet?  Roll Eyes  arrow



7 new coins from the FLYNN's Arcade  Grin  arrow



And this?... glowing like hell  Roll Eyes  arrow



It's a special pocket where you can put coins before going into the Arcades  Wink  arrow





Can't wait to see the movie Tongue Tongue Tongue

Nice story. You once said that you would send off the original game PCB for a repair job. Did you do that, or is the cab still running on Mame?

Yes, I know it's a Zac' version, but I didn't know it was rare.
I will check the size and ask if one of our Zaccaria fans can help me to track that lower door  Cool

Old thread, i know.

Question Bruno, do you still have the boardset somewhere ? (with Original roms).

I know somebody who is looking for a dump of the Original Zacc Roms (if there are ofcourse) or are they all midway roms ?

Did they ever do theyre own version, or was it all midway boards that they used in those zaccs ?

the zacc hyper olympics used the Original konami board AFAIK, and i think there where more zacc games that used OEM boards instead of custom zacc boards.
