now that i've "let off some steam", i'm trying to get back on track and perhaps something will help me do so that i've been trying for six years now: FINDING A FREAKING DRAGON'S LAIR!!!

the guys who were already there a few years ago (how many of those are still around?) might remember our really young impatient member GermanCoasterBoy. he had found a dragon's lair cab in germany which he restored with the help of his father, but never got it working. here is the original thread! he didn't have the patience (and the knowledge) to get it working, that's why he decided to sell it. first he wanted 2500 euros for it to get himself a CONGO pinball, but of course he didn't get that amount of money. he then put it on ebay (but in a wrong category) where it sold for around 600 euros if i remember correctly. i think it was matteo from italy who bought it eventually, but it took him a while to send the money, so i got contacted by our beloved GermanCoasterBoy telling me if "the Italian dude" hasn't paid by tomorrow, i could come pick it up for 500 at the weekend. of course i wanted to give matteo the chance to do so, because he had rightfully bought it, but i was ready to jump into my car and head out - especially because the seller's location was pretty close by. unfortunately (for me), matteo came through and got the cabinet for pretty cheap. good for him, bad for me ...

to cut a long story short, this was the closest (and the cheapest) i had ever come to owning a dedicated Dragon's Lair. i had it running once with an original laserdisk and an amiga using software and an adapter from a small german company (here's the link to their flyer, but it wasn't what i was looking for eventually.

with that being said: john did it, so why can't i ? Tongue

please help me find a dedicated dragon's lair cabinet (best case: running on original laserdisk hardware)! i don't mind doing roadtrips, i don't mind dropping a few bucks, i don't even mind that andré thinks the game sucks Cheesy, i just wanna have that FREAKING GAME!!!

enough said, bring it on guys!!! Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

Don't click this link.

No...I mean it.

Seriously, this is worse than when the dad shot yellow dog on Old Yeller. Scarred for life.

Some positives though, I bet you can have a bitchin' game of TMNT on this baby ;-)

Speak to a guy called Maverick in Italy. Matteo might know him. He has maybe 4 or 5 DL and SA cabinets.
