Me v'là, me v'là...

Ces temps-ci j'ai à peine le temps de descendre au sous-sol, ne serait-ce que pour deux minutes, alors allumer la Mame, yishh.
Mais bon, quitte à avoir le score le plus poche, c'est d'la vidz alors j'embarque!

I picked up this machine a few years ago in Barrie - it was working and 100% original dedicated - I ended up drilling out the locks and bulletproofed the PCB and power supply components to keep it running smooth. I also put in a coin button in the right lock spot. I love the cocktail form factor.
This is an old pic - I've since polished up the chrome legs with Autosol, and they look great!

An original Space Invaders, it's better ! You are welcome :)

My Mame cab is the CREEPY ARCADE and I'm thirteenth on the virtual league list.

Redrum... Redrum... :twisted:

You still have a MAME rig! Without the forthcoming wooden cabinet it's just more streamlined 8-)

I think all will agree that if you're playing the ROM, then you're playing in the League!

Hey Guys,

I am at work right now and heading to the Habs game afterwards, but want to save myself a spot.

Will upload picks of my cab tonight.

Thanks

Am I the only one pumped for this ? Not saying that I think I have any chance to perform well, but at least it will be a nice re-discovery of many games and a good motivation to dust off the cabinets !!! Great idea ;)

This highly qualified gamer will go to your place over the week-end and watch you play Space Invaders until you reach an adequate level. He will then take a Polaroid of your final score and send it to Max using his hi-tech fax machine. You must provide cherry coke, Doritos and a comfy couch.

Here is my MAME Cab, Old Track and Field Cab, X-Arcade Tankstick customized with the Habs Logo on it.

As much as I would like to take credit for all this, it was purchased of Roudy000 in January 2014

Let the games begin

Tenez, voilà le mien... :roll:
HiScore.jpg

Sur une note plus sérieuse, j'ai joué quelques parties tout à l'heure, et je dois admettre que je vais avoir besoin d'entraînement. Poche je suis.
Pourtant, je suis certain que si je rebranche mon Vic-20, je reconnecte presto avec mes réflexes de gamin et je pète des scores à Avenger (un clone de Space Invaders).

The game is Black and White, and for the arcade game they just placed coloured transparency/film to give the game colour at the different levels.

I guess the colour SIs you see in this thread have been "modded" to reflect the colour overlays -- not sure where this functionality is programmed though.
