...Tears of joy I would hopeSmile Thanks.

Another update or another weak attempt at bumping this thread, you decideWink

Last week we had another small gathering in our arcade and we had three guests visiting, I´m sure that you recognize some of them by know.

We had to do some repairs on some of the pinball machines (nothing big though). We (Ulus and me) also watched a soccer match; SWEDEN vs HOLLAND, which (we) SWEDEN won (no surprise there Annoy )

So, these are some pics from the evening:

Today I bought a game called GO BY RC / RC DE GO, it came as a complete kit with the TAITO G-NET motherboard, the special controller and some other stuff that you can see in the pics.

I didn´t own this system before so I´m quite pleased that the motherboard was includedSmile

Ha, that video is of the PS1 version. It'd be interesting to see how the arcade version compares to it. The game itself looks pretty awesome! Kinda like a more modern take on old isometric racers like R.C. Pro AM and Rock 'N Roll Racing, which are both games I absolutely love. The PS1 version actually was released in the US and Europe (surprisingly, they didn't even change the name) and it's very cheap so I'll definitely pick it up soon.

Of course, that won't be anywhere near as cool as owning the actual arcade game with real RC racer style controls. That just looks insanely awesome. When you get it hooked up let us know how you like it.
 
Murikov
RC DE GO looks actually pretty awesome, Priest! I like the gameplay idea of chosing the chassis and the car body of your RC racer. Especially the camera viewpoint simulating the view of a RC operator looks great as well. That's why we love Japanese Arcade Games so much. Smile

Yeah, RC DE GO is a lot like RC PRO AM / ROCK´N ROLL RACING like you guys say. Thats always a good thing and the controller brings something extra to the "experience". I likeThumbs Up

A couple of weeks ago we had visitors in our arcade again, this time it was "SwedishMeatballs" (SMB ) with wife and kids. "SMB" seemed to enjoy Kiki Kaykay / Knightboy the most (he even beat our Kiki Kaykay HS) , while the kids seemed to prefer to play Crazy taxi.

The wife of "SMB" enjoyed sitting down chatting hours away with "JFG"

It´s really fun to see even the youngest of the kids enjoying playing pinball, the one standing on a chair playing pinball.

Yup! "SMB" and his wife both have done a great job thus far in raising the kids into enjoying "real" games and not "only" first person shootersSmile

Some pics from the visit:

The youngest of the pinball players this day:

It's really nice to see all these youngsters enjoying these jewels from the Golden Gaming era! I really feel ashamed seeing all the other kiddies going under with all that Halo/GoW/CoD garbage from nowadays... Anyway, great pictures and impressions! Thumbs Up

Kiki Kaikai is actually an awesome game, I enjoyed it very much on MAME. I think the SNES adaptions (also known as Pocky & Rocky 1 + 2 in the US) are even much better imo, really worth a play if you never gave it a go.

You´re right about Kikikaykay, its really a great game...and pretty hard too. Pocky and rocky is also a good port of the arcade game

Great pics Priest, good to see the arcade being fully used, and everyone having a great time! Thumbs Up Crazy Taxi machine looks awesome too. I've only ever played on one of those once, and that machine has gone now:(

Do you think you will get a R360? people will travel from all over if you could get one of those.

I had both of those on SNES, i still have the first one i think, yes great games! I have a feeling you could get one on the PC Engine too but never played that.

I played that one via emulation a while ago and I thought it's a pretty good port of the 1986 Arcade version. The PC Engine itself was nonetheless famous for having some splendid Arcade ports.

However, I still think Pocky & Rocky 1 is the best one. Smile

Priest what you have achieved is fantastic, great to see young ones enjoying classic games as kids from that generation will probably never get the chance to play the genuine articles. You are like a gaming Jesus spreading the love of games to all.
 
Wonderboy
Nice. Keep up the good work. It's hard explaining the difference between arcade and home console games to the current generation of gamers, as STE C hinted. But it looks like you're doing your best to recreate the experience for a few of them.

A bit of an update on my cab restoration project for those that may be interested.I have fabricated a new control panel for my Simpsons cab as the old one had been converted from a 4 player cp to a 2 player 6 button fighting game at some stage and as such had extra holes drilled into it. The good folks at www.arcadeoverlay... have supplied all the new overlays,marquis and cabinet art(not fitted yet),i highly recommend them to anyone who is restoring or tidying up a cab as they supply excellent products and excellent service also.

Some pics of the work done on the Simpsons cab:-
i5.photobucket.com/albums/y167/magnus11/restorationcabs005.jpg
i5.photobucket.com/albums/y167/magnus11/restorationcabs006.jpg
And some pics of the TMNT cab,i have gone with the custom TMNT cp overlay as well as the custom marquis just to make the cab have a different look to the standard TMNT cabs. The original TMNT sideart looks like crap IMO so i have changed that also,it is based on the same art used on the control panel and looks great(just not fitted yet also).
i5.photobucket.com/albums/y167/magnus11/restorationcabs003.jpgi5.photobucket.com/albums/y167/magnus11/restorationcabs002.jpg
Hopefully i will have these two cabs finished over the coming holiday season and i will post some final pics.

Good to see your arcade pics Priest,i must get there one day for a visit.I have another 3 pinball machines arriving in time for christmas and will post some pics as soon as they are here.I am now making replacement siderails for all the older pinball machines as well as the top bars that the glass slides into....i have now made close to 200 sets of the different siderails and have orders coming in from all over OZ. It's good to have this sideline to help support my arcade game habit but it is also very time consuming which goes some way to explaining my lack of posts recently as well as my lack of progress on my own machines.

Supergrafx: Looking goodThumbs Up A question though: On the Simpson cab there are square player select buttons are these original or should there be round buttons?

In the unlikelely event (?) of you ending up in this part of the world, you are more than welcome to contact me for a visit to our arcadeSmile

Yes priest they are the original select buttons,the 4 player cabs from Konami were all the same design(Simpsons,TMNT and Sunset Riders)with just different boards and cabinet graphics.I have new select buttons for both cabs that i need to install but i have been unable to find a new purple select button for the TMNT cab as it's not a standard colour.All of the joysticks and play buttons have been replaced with new sanwa's and happ buttons as well as new speakers.I've even replaced all the steel nuts,bolts,screws etc with stainless steel ones(a bit over the top i know).All i have left to do on both cabs is replace the T moldings and put the cabinet artwork on and they are finished.With a bit of luck they should be in my own arcade by the end of January.

A visit to your part of the world will happen sometime in the future so i'll certainly call in for a visit.The same goes for you should you ever be down this part of the globe.Headbang 2

Thanks for the answerThumbs Up

I apreciate your "invitation", right now AUSTRALIA is pretty apealing. SWEDEN is dark and cold (and it gets worse before winter is over).

I´m not really sure if this is the place to post this...

We´we had another visit from the local newspaper (MVT), they wanted to do a follow up article on our arcade. Sorry but I don´t have an english translated text but here´s the article anyway...

From left to right in the photos (click on pics and article to magnify...if you dare, that is Wink ):

Nice appearance in the papers, Priest! Thumbs Up

I tried to OCR the article and furthermore Google translated it. I think the result is not the best (its not 100% complete), but at least it gives us an idea what the newspaper wrote.

Boys are never adults. Or: The boy in us adult is there, always. MVT (the newspaper) stepped in a boy-dream this week, when we visited the Motala arcade hall in the old Luxorfabrlken. It's a fun thing and fun to be in this together, says Daniel Monresson, nice to have a room. The games take place at home of course, says Jan Gustavsson. You just have to come and play if you want. Just get in touch, says Magnus Larsson. Thuresson, Gustavsson and Larsson have everything in common. They have never grown from playing games, these games the adult grown up with. These physical games in a way, always will will be more fun than computer games, not matter how good (nowadays) computer game's graphics are becoming. There is something special about pinball games when the ball physically bounces. There is something special when playing the first "Donkey Kong " Arcade, just like these standing in the snack-food banknotes in the 1980s. There is something that sparkles in old "Shooters", or that tune around San Francisco in a classic game with a steering wheel, accelerator and brake (Crazy Taxi).

Instead of syniöte you can got to do something like this; says Jan Gustavsson. Thuresson, Gustavsson and Larsson has been reached through online forums, forums for arcade enthusiasts. In this way, they have begun organizing itself, and then one year, the Motala arcade was complete. There are a dozen old Pinball machines and more than 20 more Arcade games. It seems there is also a workshop where Games can be repaired. There is a sense to play these games.

Playing on the computer is not same thing, says Daniel Thuresson. These games are otherwiseof endangered species. There used to be Arcades in Varamon and also in central drum, but nowadays it seems only Jack Vegas machines are set up. It's too expensive and complicated to get a permission for operating Pinball machines. It becomes not profitable, says Magnus Larsson. There is currently no public LIG room with these games in the town. Motala arcade is actually not open to the public, only for trusted Friends. The town of Norrköping still has some arcades. Then there are games at Liseberg in Gothenburg and at Heron City in Stockholm. So they remain until now, but they are rare, says Daniel. Playing games is not about being a boy or signed can printer-man. To have fun is just as fun, no matter to "revisit childhood" age by playing the classic titles like the first "Donkey Kong"...
