Yes I agree on that too, despite familiar faces I'm interested in what happened.

Video Craze was so bad I felt embarrassed for the people on the screen...
Maybe we could invite the guy in the Pac-Man costume though  ;)

Looking for Dragons Lair 1 or 2, Space Ace, Double Dragon, Robotron and yeah... a Shinobi would be cool, too!

I see there is a arcade game contest to vote for the best restored cab as "each of the games is fully restored into original condition inside and ouside"

I wouldn't consider my Hyper Olympic in that condition ;)

I wouldn't consider my Hyper Olympic in that condition ;)

That wasn't announced here and in fact, has been dropped. Although it was a cool idea, "general visitors" will not know where and what to look for in a cab restoration. In fact, it probably would turn into "what is your favorite cab" contest and that would miss the goal.

The idea was that instead of always the best players (record players) getting the spotlight, instead now letting the best restorer get into the spotlight and win something.

The second idea behind it (of course) was to get people triggered to bring their nicest machine .....hahaha....yes what a mean idea huh ;)

Although a cool idea, we feel this is more suited for a competion "among collectors". So for now, this has been dropped, sorry guys.



We've added the games offered by Rinus (thanks !)

These are:
- Special Criminal Investigation Sit Down version (!)
- House of the Dead II
- Carnevil


On a more sad note, it looks like Computer Space won't be making it this year. We've had some chances to fix the TV inside of the cabinet but regretfully some essential parts were not there in time because of reasons out of control of the Eurocade team.

Also the machine still has the player ship spinning uncontrolable, another issue which should be solved. However, because of other busy work around RGE/Eurocade and summer holidays we fear there won't be time to get the CS ready in time, sorry.

So, we would really LOVE to have that other early 70's altnernative machine, the one every one remembers as THE machine to launch the video arcadegame madness.......anyone ??
