Hah, I know what you feel ;)


GREAT pics Bruno !! Again, thank you SO much for bringing my holy grail (the working one ;)). Totally enjoyed playing it, although I need loads of more practice :)

I saw a nice picture where my son and dad where at the Pole Position II , nice :)

Banner looked great, but I hate the curtains there even more than I already did, man they are ugly !

One of the few things (I think) we could improve: tape off the windows with black foil to get that arcade feeling during daytime too :) Never gave it a thought really...
Once the sun was down, that real arcade look (and sound) was all over the room :)

Yeah...that MB is next on my list !!! I HAVE to use that paint you had mixed for me soon...don't know how long it can survive (I do shake and turn it every now and then...) but than MB will become DK !!

Holy crap!  How tall are you?!? 
Or is that Q*Bert really small?

Both  ;D
André is tall & that *european* Q*Bert cabinet is smaller than the US one.
In addition, I would say my camera increases the perspective...  :P

Well, I'm not a tiny fellow, but there were some guys around that I had to look WAY up too !!! I'm 1.86 meters tall. But indeed, the angle of the picture increases the effect.
GREAT pictures so far Bruno THANKS !!! (esp. for not missing the "hallway" area, great pics of my Atari machines (and the rest too of course).
I see some pics with my dad and my son at the Pole Position II, very nice !

Something we forgot Bruno, we should have taken a picture of your Q*bert and the generous gift I had the pleasure to receive next to each other to see the differences !!!!


LOL.  I'm 1.80 Meter tall.

I did not realize that the Q*Bert in europe was smaller.

By the way...  i found that joystick...  need to make sure all the hardware is on the CP.

 ;D

Great news on the joystick :)

I never knew there even was a European version of Q*bert until I read about Bruno's. In fact, do we know of another Euro-bert still exists ?
