(maby because you donīt heat your house like i do...)

Looking forward to V3, so that awsome galaxian 3 could rise again.

Well, I heat both room (I would say ONE room because there's no door between the V1 and V2 Tongue) 24/24 hours, 7 days per week, 365 days per year  Cool ...with the same electric radiator (bath of oil inside the radiator), and it works fine, but it won't be enough for the V3, which should be very huge. I plan of course to put the G3 in it, but also other games I still have everywhere in my/friends/family house  Smiley

I've seen your amazing job on your game room Muerto, congrats  Kiss

Thanks  Smiley

Regarding the V3 build, do you have the space in your back yard, i mean, the G3 is HUGE!...
if you get the V3 build somehow attached to V1 and V2, you donīt have to worry about heating the room  Grin
(this conversation could look like somthing going on between a couple of scientist late W2  Grin  Grin )

I signed up here to say this has got to be one of the all time greatist posts. Had I lived closer I'd ask to come say and see your game room. Simply amazing and great looking.

I spent hours last night reading just about everything.

Two comments, though:

1 - I think you're missing some "snack" vending machines.. on free play of course. Cheesy

2 - Will the town let you build a second floor on it?

It is a nice consideration, but do to the size of most games and their heavyness It would be problematic to move games between floors (I know that because I'm in this situation) so

it is better a ground floor,

Yes, this means more space to build but it is easier and faster (floors building plans require lot of burocratic & responsability approvals especially for kg/mq3)

Yeah I hear ya, but I figured from the looks of things he can afford to install some sort of elevator. Smiley

If I ever have my own little arcade I'm putting   in one of those crane games where my guests will be able to win classic Atari 2600 games and stuff like that.. some of them semi-rare.

If I ever hit the lottery I have plans to build an Arcade and Console Museum. The arcades will all be free-play with a one price admission. I want to have rooms separated by year, so in one room all games from 1981, another room 1982, etc. This way you can walk through the evolution.

The rarer games (like if I ever got my hands on a Beavis & Butt-Head prototype) will only be shown behind glass.

The consoles will be behind glass also. Not for touch or play.

If you get the V3 body somehow absorbed to V1 and V2, you donīt accept to anguish about heating the allowance

Yes, it would be great but I think elevators at the moment in Europe are quite expensive

Maybe in Usa the whole project would work flawless

Anyway soon or later the V3 will come out

Go Bruno!   Twisted

If he's crafty enough to build the whole Lair in the first place then I think him and his father are crafty enough to build some kind of simple elevator.

For people to go upstairs would be stairs, but for games, would be like a "dumb waiter". Google that if you don't know what it is. It's like something you can transport laundry or little things from one floor to another. I think you can build something to safely pull the games up using some sort of leverage and gears. Sort of like when you peddle a bicycle and the gears do the work.

Well, the first lair was an existing garage that I've transformed.
When we made the V2, I didn't want to pay an architect and so we've done the biggest room possible without having an architect.
Of course, It wasn't possible to do something bigger like an other floor for example.
But because the V3 will have to store a GT-6 (aka 'The Theater'  Roll Eyes), it'll be a big room, so I'll have to work with an architect. I've a big area behind both rooms, perfect for a big V3  Cool I'll take a picture to show you  Wink
