December 2007, in a dealing room... somewhere in Luxembourg...

...I'm working... and suddenly... a reminder is coming up ...  Oh no... another meeting ? another urgent task to do  Huh? Embarrassed

But hey... wait...  Roll Eyes ...



Hey... this is 'road trip' time  Cheesy ...and for this one, a very special team-mate : Patrick... just in front of my desk  Grin  arrow



Ok, let's start the serious work  Grin

Patrick founded a good timeliness... and because he knows I'm in the 'Arcade Scene', he has decided to share the treasure with me... Niiice  Kiss
He's looking for pinballs. His wife has access to the old stuff for an old game room in an amusement park.
He asks me to visit that place together and see what we can find... I like that  Grin ... 15 minutes to drive... and here we are... in that old amusement park depot. Because his wife is working for that amusement park (in fact, it's now a zoo), she was already there, with a van... and waiting for us  Cool

Hey...Nice find : a dedicated Atari's S.T.U.N. RUNNER  Cool Of course, I won't let that baby longer here ! Let's load it immidiately :



Opsss... the game is too high for the van... We have to remove the topper  arrow



...maybe we should have removed it *before* trying to load the whole cockpit  Undecided Grin



Done  Smiley



I'm happy for today  Tongue Now, let's make Patrick happy too  Wink

He gets this fabulous Bally's FATHOM pinball... first  Roll Eyes Cool



Let's prepare it for loading :



Hey... it's me... I can also 'work' on roadtrip... and not only taking pictures for stories  Grin Grin Grin  arrow



Get ready for the travel number 1  Cool



Only 25 km to drive to reach the Patrick's house... in France... but close to one hour to drive (traffic jam grrrrr  Evil Ghost).



At the Patrick's house, we unload the pinball in his living room  Grin

...and what about my S.T.U.N. RUNNER ? Well... No more free space in my house... so Patrick accepts to keep the game in his garage  Kiss Kiss  arrow



Go back to the depot, in Luxembourg... another pinball for Patrick : Eight Ball Champ  Smiley  arrow



...and this time, Carine is more efficient than us to remove the pinball legs  shock  Wink  arrow



Travel number 2 : go back to Patrick's house ... he is now the proud owner of two pinballs  Cheesy Welcome to the fabulous world of arcade & pinball @ home Patrick  Tongue And thanks again for keeping the S.T.U.N. RUNNER in your garage... until my new gaming room will be done  Wink



Good luck for the pinballs restoration  Wink

PS : Carine would like to have a Racing game now  lol

And...................................................... back on this! Grin

This cab' has never been plugged since I got it  Tongue
As you can see, it's not a small one  arrow



I know nothing about that 'cockpit'? ... Is it working or not ? What about the monitor ? PCB still inside and ... complete ?  Huh?

Let's check BEFORE plugging the game for the first time ...



Still a lot of dust as you can see...  oppps ... but I prefer to see if it's working or not *FIRST*, before cleaning all the thing!

Let's check the identity  arrow



Let's open the back door. Hey, it looks very clean inside...



... the board looks very clean too, and nothing seems to be missing at first sight  Cool  arrow



Ok... so ... it's time...

POWER ON


...





...





...






Holy Jesus... it's working  Tongue Shocked  Kiss  arrow

Beware, bringing in dusty or dirty games to your lair.... SILVERFISH.....    shock

If you know of these bugs, they will destroy any paper items such as posters, sidearts, collectibles in packages etc.

Once they're in, it's damn near impossible to get rid of them!


If possible, use an air compressor and clean out the games somewhat before bringing them into the lair!

I went to crazy lenghts to make sure no silverfish were moved from the old house to the new game room.

Silverfish like moisture. If you have them there's bound to be some water or moist surroundings involved somewhere. Haven't seen any of them in my cabs. I've seen others though like spiders in my  Centipede (no, really !) and a (dead) lady-bug in my Galaxian Cheesy

Yes! A good surprise  Smiley Well, the game was in storage since almost one year, without any access to it. When It came inside my game room, I was already working on many others projects with a highest IRQ number  Wink

Beware, bringing in dusty or dirty games to your lair.... SILVERFISH.....    shock

Yes, in fact... I've removed the WORST before entering the game inside the game room.
...but I really need a true workshop for games to restore  Undecided

Sometimes I wonder if there are weird powers amongst us. I think it must have been 10 years ago since I last saw a silverfish, and today, while I was working at a customer, one was running across the desk I was working on !!!

Yugh.


2nd time he wasn't so lucky. He's in silverfish heaven now. Sorry, I hate those little creepers.....

By the way, what a GREAT addition !!!! LOVE IT !!!!

I've only played S.T.U.N. runner on my Atari Lynx and it's a pretty good game on that little machine, so I can imagine how it is on the real thing !!! Whooohooo seriously nice score my friend !!!

 Grin

...but regarding the sound... well... this is the *bad* part of the story yet : The game has some sound problem  Angry

I can hear the sound of the ship, sometime a part of music when you select level, and something the female voice... but there is problem with other sounds/voices/effect. I've just compared with mame...

I sure wish I would have ordered that T shirt back in 1989!!!   

...A T shirt? huh... OK  Smiley ... understood  Grin In the game menu settings arrow



Man, this one should be a true collector now  Tongue Regarding such game contests... back in the DayZ.. what a motivation for the player, wasn't it ?  Smiley

I'm still in the menu, let's take a ride ...

Statistics :



Average Time/coin: 91 sec ? Expensive game  roll eyes

ERROR COUNTS : Does it supposed to help me?  Grin  arrow



Let's see the High Scores  arrow



Do these high scores are good? I'm not (yet) a S.T.U.N. Runner player... so I can't tell  Roll Eyes Tongue
