Thanks guys for the nice comments so far. It was great meeting you all, a few for the first time but most of you for the second time or so. And amongst you were quite some good friends, at least I like to think so.

I had a blast today, everything went smooth, the weather was great, the armosphere was very special and the games were fun to play. And you guys rocked. The high score contest on Donkey Kong, delivered a winner, who already collected his price. More info about the results of the contest will soon follow.

There was only one disappointment, when getting back to the hotel at 1.15 am a few of us discovered that the hotelbar was already closed! Bummer.

I wish all of you who are still driving (Muerto), or who will drive back home tomorrow, a safe journey and I hope that we will meet again soon.

Well, decided to pull a "EC11" and drove all the way back, my phone id blocked due to overdraft, because my carrier sucks, so writing this on my labtop in the livingroom, before moving upstairs for a couple of hours of sleep - but this cant ruin anything atm!!!!  :)

Thanks to the EC crew for making this event even better than last year! ... .. . Nighty night!

Super, Super Event (evenement)!!  Hey, you guys should do this every year!  :P

Was great seeing familiar faces again, and meeting some new ones... gonna have to check the list of names and forum usernames again for the who's who of Eurocade  ::)

Thankyou for bringing all your games and thanks to Everyone for (re)creating an amazing Arcade Atmosphere in Ridderkerk!!!  My Brother Quent, my Mom, and Bas also had a great time and a lot of fun, and we really appreciate you letting them join in on this cool experience!

Darnit i forgot to try a few game of Moon Patrol and Berzerk, but at least i got to play Ice Cold Beer for the first time... I wanted to play Mad Planets, which i played in 2008 in Philadelphia, very very cool machine, but it was not switched on...?

And what a simply awesome Eurocade Crew, all the Guys and Girls are!
André + Crew, I really appreciate the invitation, and the opportunity to try to break my current record on your Galaxian machine... it played great once again, it was perfect, but unfortunately i was not ;)
And Thank You Guys once again for the incredible Picture Frame you presented me after my record attempt!!
I was really surprised, flabbergasted  :shock: and very honoured by it, it looks awesome and i was amazed how you got the score in there so quickly lol.  I don't know where to hang it yet, because it's gonna look good everywhere :) 

THANKS!  ;D

Wow, what a great event again! And indeed better then the year before, apart from the lousy Chinese food, that seemed to be the same or even worse hahaha!

Anyway a big thanks and congratulations to Andre and his league of extraordinary men for pulling this off again and even better!

Thnx for everyone, especially Robin for helping me out with all the boards I had brought, sorting them and taking some home for repair and further investigation.
Thnx to Bencao for bringing all his incredible stuff for an incredible great deal, those SLG's are going to come in sooo handy at our Arcade!

Thnx to Bruno for making me feel like a kindergarten gamer on Galaga! Next year I'm gonna eat your score for breakfast  :twisted: I'm already in training as we speak  :spaceace:

Thnx to Michael for demotivating us to ever play Ice Cold Beer again, or maybe to get one and practice the hell out of it, if we can get our hands on one of course!! I sooo badly want this machine!!

Last to everyone who brought their wonderful cabs to the event (Space Zap is high on my list!)

Too bad that Pacwhiz didn't break his record, but that doesn't make him a lesser hero to me, what an Arcadegod this man is! Not to mention his skills on Pacman, he makes everything look soo easy!

Untill the next!!

You are very welcome Aart !

I think you really deserve this piece.

For the people that was not there to see it live, here a lowres image of what i have send off to the printers and framed it for Aart:



I have made the vector of this galaxian bezel, and i contacted my friend bas from Laforma if he could "create" a monitor in the file and some positioning of the items i gave to him.
(text, picture, arcade font, scanlines for over the monitor part and some buttons)

It came out really nice and after his attempt i combined the numbers that i had separate, and i could paste the score in there.

It was my pleasure to make this possible Aart, and again, you totally deserve it.

Maybe not the world record, but still an amazing accomplishment.

What an awesome gameplay ! just wonderfull !

Congratiolations on your score Aart !

(ofcourse i speak for all the Eurocade crew !!! )

just arrived home from eurocade - after travelling 1490 kilometers and almost being killed by that gamecube demopod during unloading...  :P

thx for a fabulous event, guys, perfectly organized and an awesome setup - even better than last year! unfortunately, the mad planets i had brought must have developed an issue during transport (we had to load and unload it three times before setting it up on location which obviously didn't do good to the game). i think there were two winners (gamewise) judging from the games getting played at this year's eurocade: ice cold beer (which fortunately i'm not such a huuuge fan than the rest of you guys) and space zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzap: that game really rockzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and i definitely need to have one, but wait a minute ... ;) 8)

thx again to everyone who made the event possible (again), i wouldn't wanna organize something like that!

and last but not least thx to chris for his hospitality and for being my wingman from belgium to the netherlands and back again. i really enjoy talking to you and moving stuff around in your gameroom! ;D
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!
