Hello Amiga, and welcome to DLF/ALS  ;)

I cannot read all the texts from you links (what is your language?), but you seems to love 'scratch built mame setup', and according the pictures, all your friends and/or family seems to appreciate it!  ;) Where are you coming from by the way?

Thanks for sharing your 'arcade life style' with us.  ;)

Wow, that is very interesting.
So what about the Arcade scene over there? I presume there's not too much dedicated cabinet? Do you have some arcade anecdote to tell us?

Look I do not have much space in just one small room ... where I want to fulfill all my fantasies, playing the arcade machines in the past.

I have no one machine is dedicated.

For example MORTAL KOMBAT, I can switch panel with and play IKARI. in vertical screen.


The OUTRUN well built machine, I decided to build a panel AFTER BRUNER style.

The bottom line is I'm trying to enjoy the best of both worlds ... If I had a basement or a large room. I stared at my collection
 
Dedicated arcade machines ... ::)

Hi and welcome! :)


Your Racing Cab is great, especially these columns with the controls for Afterburner. I like this spirit to make the best out of the things you can get!!  :spaceace:

Like Bruno I would also like to know more about the arcade scene in Israel. Is there any? Has there been in the golden age (late 70s and 80s)? Are there arcades with racers and shooters these days?

Thanks man

 In Israel, unfortunately, not many people building or collecting arcade machines.
But every mall has a small arcade machines. But new arcade machines ... not something I'm excited about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPn3H1CtDCg&feature=relmfu
I stared like to see old arcade machines.

Well, at least there are small arcades. In Germany: NOPE!  >:(
