Thanks guys  :)

Regarding the dedicated DariusburstEX website, I've used a template(initially done for an other purpose) done by a friend. It has be created in CSS / PHP. I've never worked with these languages so far!

So during these 4 last days (more than 12 hours per day :oops:), I had to learn these languages enough to :
- 'reverse engineering' the job done by my friend to understand how CSS & PHP work
- get enough knowledge of css & php languages to do something nice (I hope it is)
- figure out how to modify / tune the code to create what I have in my mind for this dedicated DariusburstEX website
- create all the graphic chart, taking pictures, photoshop...
- all these domain names, servers, host, url forward, dns, registars and other boring stuff...
- to write the road trip report

So there are still few bugs in the website, but I wanted to publish the road trip asap!   :)
I will correct them in the coming days, be indulgent  ;)

I can't tell you how I'm happy with this game. This time it's not a matter of 'collecting' a game, it's not a matter of restoring a game... it's a matter of PLAYING a game! And it's been a long time a new arcade game didn't catch my interest so strong!

Great link Oliver!  8) I've found my cabinet in its original location in Japan, thanks to the serial number! ;D  It was located at the Plaza Capcom  :arrow:



Note that the seat on mine is the fully 'skinned 'DBACEX red one'.

Did you have the English manual by the way? Or the English description of the service mode menu? I'm trying to reset the high score for example...

I have a PDF of the English manual. It isn't very good though..

I am trying to find the original toppers. They seem to all be lost!

Wow - How big is your game room, Bruno???

The one in Casino (arcade) didn't have the tall bit on the seat as far as I rememeber.  I think it went off to the Middle East when it was sold...

HAHAHA!!!
I knew it, I knew it!
I could hear your pulse accelerating at Eurocade when we played that monster :)
Great report and really cool that there's another serious alien to blast in the Lair!

How big is your game room, Bruno???

3 rooms for a total of 140m2, external dimension, so a little bit less inside... but definitely enough for that new monster  ;)

Did either of you guys get the big Pop card on top of the cab?

Not for me  :-\... but yeah, that sign would be awesome on the top of the game. Maybe finding the file and print it ourself?

cool that there's another serious alien to blast in the Lair!

THIS. IS. INSANE.
I see that you bought it at Rklok storage hall, I already went there once to buy my Blast City, this guy really has cool machines, and puts nice bonus in his containers to fill the empty space.
When I saw that you bought it in Netherlands, I thought it was the one I had the chance to try when I went to the Psykick's storage place, where I bought another cab too. He lives near Rotterdam, and has a reaaaaally cool collection of cabs (owned by him and two friends), this was the first (and only) time that I could try this cab, and it made me a very strong impression, the sound, graphics and general experience were really a great moment in my gamer's life. This reminds me that I still have to relate this roadtrip  ;)
By the way, great buy Bruno, as always!
