Few weeks ago, I went to the new Pat's GameRoom. He works on it since maybe one years, and now... at least ... it's time to bring games into it  Smiley

Last month, Pat got its very first games... have a look at this post  arrow  http://www.dragonslairfans.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=265

So here's the situation before the new load of games :



He asked me to come in order to 'supervise" this arrival of games, and also help him to configure a mame computer  Smiley

So for the moment, his family can play two games :

World Cup Soccer pinball :



Namco's Soul Edge :



This is the D-Day for him... 4rd of april 2007   arrow

 arrow  It'll be christmas in august for the childs  arrow



First gift ... an authentic Babyfoot  Tongue



The gameroom is at the first floor...



See how to bring it upstair  arrow



Fortunately, it has an elevator to load until 400kg :



...does the passage will be large enough for the babyfoot ?



No problemo  Cool

Ok, now a quick inspection of it :



All is fine... Next toy  roll eyes  



The next toy is ... a pool  shock  Shocked



...ouch... quite an heavy thing...  Evil



The first idea was to use the elevator, like we did for the babyfoot...



... but because of the size of the pool, we were a little bit affraid to damage it... so, for the moment, the pool stay in the garage few days...



OK, there's no more 'toys' in the seller's trailer... let's move It ... By the way, I would like to have a similar trailer.. .very usefull for Arcade Warehouse & Roadtrips  roll eyes     arrow



The next one is ... a pinball :



NO FEAR  Tongue



It looks very nice ... Pat is not really a 'die-hard' arcade game player, he loves pinballs  



...same technique than the babyfoot... very easy  Shocked  :



Don't try this at home  lol  lol   arrow



Few more steps... and it'll be 'on location'  Cool



... the last part from the 'NO FEAR' pinball :



It's not finished... one more game... Kids don't know what it is... but they are attracted by it  Cool  Like we were when we saw an arcade video game or a pinball for the first time  Shocked



...it's a pachislot... it's not plug yet, but the kids are already pushing on all the buttons  lol



It's a wonderfull King Camel pashislot...





Ok, go back to 'work' on the babyfoot...



...while this time, the NO FEAR pinball is adopted by all the kids :



An other game that should be in all Gamerooms : Darts  Cool



That gameroom is really huge... but don"t forget the pool to come soon  



Ok, it's time for me to work on the mame computer.

In order to keep all the Soul Edge original parts, I'll configure a computer  with an ArcadeVGA graphic card and use a JPAC... so the only thing I have to do on his cab is ...
Disconnet the original jamma pcb and connect the Jpac, like this :



... I'm 'working'....



... like others have some fun on pinbals  lol  lol



...this Gamerooms still looks very empty ... for the moment  



OK... the work is done... Mame is now working fine... the Kids will have more games now  roll eyes  
It's time for me to have some fun  Tongue



These two pinballs are really fun to play... More I play on pinballs, more I like them... I NEED PINBALL(S) for my gameroom too !!!  Tongue  



While we are playing on pinballs.. the kids discover classics  arrow  GHOSTS'N'GOBLINS  Tongue



Don't be affraid about arcade games for the futur...  Kids will still loving them'  arrow



It was a great day... the born of a new Game Room  Shocked  Cool  Cool  Cool

More games to come here... so stay tuned  roll eyes

wow!! check out that duplex garage conversion, it's amaaaaaaaaaazing!!!!!!!!!!! check out the double height doors, you probably need a giant to push them open if they were thick and heavy!!

are you sure the winch has a load of 400kg?? it looks very haphazard to me!! looks like it was put together with a bit of wood and some old rope/ belt.  shock  think you did the right thing not to risk death with the pool table.

the conversion is just gorgeous, have i said that already?? i'd be a bit concern with the dart board though mixed with the kids. it's just so open and airy, lovely windows letting in plenty of light, and the feature wall in orange. i know nothing about interior design but i have to admire what your buddy has there.

now where's that worship/ i'm not worthy smiley?!?!

YoP Vib,

Well it should be able to carry a load of 400kg... but ... we won't take a risk with that beautifull pool table... now on location    arrow

i'm trying to figure out/ understand the layout of this room?!

when i'm looking at the room i see a doorway at the corner, but the photos you show where you are winching up the machines over the parked cars, the upper floor has exposed brick work.

so am i right in thinking that the games room is off to one side and not directly over the cars?? is the bit over the cars unfurnished?
