not that much, i'd say 1h and a half as a maximum.   Tongue

In fact I was overall coming to see how you were fixing your sony 29" into your cab as I am concerned by the same problem.
You as me "come, I will show you, when do you wanna come ?"
It was 23 of december evening.
My only answer : "do you do anythhing tomorrow ?"  Grin
So, fate was sealed.

You know my friend, It's always a huge pleasure to come and visit you, even if i was a bit scary to disturb your X-mas night.
So much game to see in this V2 release.
As I've seen, since the time we came, you took a new start in your cab restoration. Glad to see that our visit have maybe got you the motivation to go forward with fews of your waiting cab.
There are so many, it's a real big river to cross. "Were do I begin ?", when there are so much work to complete.

A big thank to you and your wife for your disponibility and your kindness...
So much lights in the eye when we go back home.
You know how much it's priceless.

Zebass was like a child on the way back, speaking over and over again about his experience of the afternoon  lol
Isn't arcade what it is about ? Sure !

I could make a full range of thanks that it wouldn't reach how much all this counts for me.

Thank you again.

I hope I could join one road trip in a near future,
As we already missed each other in our overbooked schedules.  shock

See you, mate !
Keep it up as you do, you're a model for everyone of us.

You're crazy enough to show us how crazy we should be.
Without you and all you road trip, reports and work in progress topics,
for sure I wouldn't own any arcade game at home.
I'ts just insane, but who cares ?
Is life worth living without a bit of "clean" insanity ?

Pierre, the one-handed player.

Great story guys.  Grin

If I ever travel that far up north, I'll have to try my luck on your vectors (SW/Starblade).

It's a shame I don't live anywhere near anyone that has a single arcade machine... I'd even settle for a pinball!

Hum, hum,

I don't have any pretention in making high scores, even on my beloved game : rolling thunder  Kiss
So don't worry Dazza, there's no chance for me to compete with you.
If I remember well, I didn't even pass 1st stage during that session  Shocked

That said, Bruno, Rolling Thunder deserves a better access, I'm not that fat but playing tablet isn't good conditions
allowing high score perfomance   Tongue

What ? What do say, bag masta excuses ?
definitely  Grin

Picture with game over make me laugh a lot...
good picture for an avatar  Grin

Pierre, Rolling looser.

Hey, welcome here my friend  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Glad to see you really enjoyed your trip in Belgium, inside the Lair  Wink

I hope to come back soon and test dragon's lair II
Shame on you that this cab wasn't always pluged on Wink

As you've seen, the games inside the two rooms are not in their best location, for example the socket behind the Dragon's Lair II wasn't easy to access... but next time, you'll enjoy Dragon's Lair II  Kiss Kiss Kiss

no the cabinet was there before, the house was built around it and then Bruno started to collect dedicated cabinet as offerings to this arcade idol.
believe it or not, Bruno is the guru of an arcade worship sect.
