Hi Bruno !

Yep, someone who was there just posted some more images on our site... I took them and put them here, too Smiley !




Not much, but I've just translated a forum message from the same guy who made the pics...
Cheesy

"
Hello boys! Here are some considerations...

- in the 1st pic Sandrino observes 'the Master MACDLSA' as he juggles... hemm... the colorful balls (!)

- ... and in the 2nd, after he have finished with the 'big brother', here it is Sandrino with the customized mini-cab, going on for hours and hours !

At the end thanks to:
- MAC for organizing the whole party.
- MAC's wife for the various food.
- Matteo 'Italiandoh' for the valuable info and the fact of not understanding how Sandrino could handle the Sidam to the end with the 'double move' Shocked !
- Alessandro F. for his 48 years well spent behind a Pengo;
- Lukezab for the bargain which he did by taking the Yaris Japanese import and for the fantastic prosecco wine kindly supplied to us !
- The blonde girl at the pizzeria, sitting behind me, who has made ​​AleF. fool (and not only him...) and the balconette breast of the waitress that came to our table...
- The night spent sleeping in the van and in the Yaris.
- AND ... to Polybius ... Shocked Shocked Shocked
"

Funny, isn't it ? Wink Cheesy !!!

Days ago I decided to make my mini-cabinet independent from wife's eeePC.

So I decided to threw a "classic" computer inside the cab.
By chance, I could use my old "Monolith cabinet PC", with a Pentim 4 H.T. 3 Ghz, which was recently replaced by a powerful Intel Core-Duo 2.8Ghzx2 based machine Smiley !

[ WOW ! Now I got a 100% -STABLE- of speed with Firefox-MAME, while before it arrived at a 80/90% -NOT STABLE- maximum  shock !!! ]

__________________________________________________

To complete the job, I took a 9" LCD monitor/TV ( at the beginning I thought to use a 10" CRT, but the tube is too deep and it would have ended up out of the rear panel of the cabinet  Cry ! ) and a pair of "easy" mini-loudspeakers which are powered by the 5V of the USB connector Smiley !
And, at least, I put a 12V (taken from the computer's PSU) led-strip for the backlited marquee.

Here are some pics:













And a clip Smiley :

Nice to see such a vibrant Dragon's Lair community here. The first time I saw this marvellous piece of technical achivement live was on a 3-weeks language learning trip in... Brighton. I only knew it from pictures in german magazine TeleMatch before then, I think. It must have been 1983 or 1984 and I also saw a Punch-Out and a M.A.C.H. 3 for the first time. But the game I remember playing most was Tempest  Smiley
So here's to 31 years!

Looks like anice party.... You needed only 3 days to build the min DL  Shocked well done.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

I even would look that way if you would need 2 weeks for something like that!

Does the scoreboard work?
