Nice link JC!!!
This pic looks familiar since I just got new pups...maybe I could get the statue instead of the pups...easier to clean up!

Next time I get yelled at for my moutain bike hanging from the ceiling in my bedroom I'm going to bring home one of these for the coffee table.
You'll shoot your eye out kid!!!
Actually now that I look at it that would look pretty darn good right next to the beer meister! The moutain bike will seem like a tiffany vase by the time I'm done re-decorating.

How's about his baby?

Anybody need a lawnmower?

Otter, that's the funniest thing I've seen all day!

Classic!! That would look great in my living room window. Nothing like the gleam of electic sex coming through the window.
Are you into old video games? I'm guessing you've heard of Mame32 then, right? If not, it's an emulator that plays the old arcade ROMs on your PC. I have it both here at work and at home. Still can't get past the third screen in PacMan.
As far as E-bay goes, I'm still not sure. I just get leary buying used things, especially over the internet. Has anyone had problems with it, or are the things on there usually all good?
~~Still prefers brick-and-mortar.

Can you find a better truck than this? If we all use this, our gas price will go down quick.
05-16-2001, 12:36 PM
That dog statue is GOLDEN!!! I want one for the living room, but my fiance says no...
05-16-2001, 01:28 PM
Oh yes! Mame32 is awesome! I actually have 120 of the ROMS at home and work as well. I have 4 MS Sidewinder controllers and can hook all of them up at once for 4 player games (i.e Vendetta, TMNT, and the like).
I got hold of an actual Arcade machine 7 years ago. It is an original Missle Command arcade machine that was converted to Street Fighter II. I found out THIS year that I could purchase JAMMA boards off of ebay and convert the coin-op to various other games. I bought 11 different boards and the marquees to go with them. So now instead of just having Street Fighter II I can convert the coin-op to any of the other 11 games in 3 minutes and wallah! a new arcade machine.

Stryker: I used to live next door to a guy that worked on stand ups and pinball machines. I loved to go to his house and play them for free!
Anyone remember Karate Champ?
Or Robotron 2024?
Other old time favs:
Asteroids (had a buddy that had this one switched to Espanol!)
Good 'ol Pac-Man, and Ms.

Those standups are indeed the "older" ones and boy what fun! Those are called PCB boards and are much bigger boards and have different wiring harnesses.
The JAMMA boards are small like todays motherboards and connect with ease by using a single harness.
Street Fighter II
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
P.O.W. Prisoners of War
All DIP switches are set for "Free Play" if not available, I have the key for the ole coin box! :D

I remember that one!! That must've been one of the first that had that type of "hit somebody with a baseball bat" mentality.
Spent a lot of money on that one.
It must be nice to be able to change your games out. My neighbor used to do that also. New glass, new board; voila! new game!
Anybody here play old pinball games?
Me likey pinball muchly.
05-17-2001, 12:36 AM
OMG, Russ. Otter got me laughing, and your "truck" absolutely killed me; That's the funniest thing I've ever seen!
05-17-2001, 12:38 AM
BTW, Russ, did you bid on it?
05-17-2001, 07:39 AM
I spent more time than I care to remember inside of Fun Factory (Bannister Mall) and Cool Crest's video arcade playing video games. Must have spent thousands in quarters.
Probably my all time favorite arcade game was Cliff Hanger. It was part of the laser disc video game revolution in 1983. Loved that game and unfortunately never finished it. I've read that the original developers of Dragon's Lair are trying to purchase the rights to the game to release it on DVD and DVD-ROM for PC and PS2/Xbox.
Anyway, I found this website a while back and is good for a stroll down memory lane:
Mile High Mania

Damn Otter... that looks like electric sex glowing in the window!
Fra-gil-e, must be Italian!
05-17-2001, 08:13 AM
I thought Dragon's Lair was about the neatest thing ever when it came out. The renderings were great. Looked like good 'ol Disney stuff. There was a Sci-fi one, but the name 'scapes me.
I looked on ebay yesterday for pinball machines. A Six mil Man (6 players!) an old baseball pinball game (little players move around in a circle inside the backglass), and a Fireball. Neato frito.
Finally got to see Otter's pic. "It's a major award!" Funny stuff.
Truck made me laugh out loud too.
Great way to start off yer day.

redhed: probably space ace.
Dragon's Lair is available for the PC via DVD...
Here's the website for old LD game enthusiasts:

Of course. Thanks KCT.

Do any of you remember that other animation spy game that wasn't done by Don Bluth. I think it was called Golgo or something. But I pleyed it at the Fun Factory at OP mall all the time when I was younger. It rocked.

May two favorites were Afterburner and Tron. Got Afterburner for Mame but can't seem to find the Tron ROM. I've got "Discs of Tron" but that's just not the same. I've got around 160 ... accidentaly downloaded a couple of Japenese versions. Have no idea what in the hell is going on).
~~Never had enough money to play when young, so making up for it now.
05-17-2001, 11:49 AM
I do not have Tron as well. I have Discs of Tron and Afterburner too. I got most of the ROMs from www.mameplay.net It is a great site and has tons of information as well as ROMs.
The problem is that Mame gets so much flack that the sites go down as fast as they go up! It reminds me of when the first N64 ROMs came out. They had to be found "underground" like Warez sites and such. If I come across Tron I'll be sure to let you know.
~Arcade @ home...all the fun with out the expense;)

I actually bought a car on E-bay about a month ago.
A 73 Cadillac Coupe DeVille w/ a 472 ci engine in it. 57,000 original miles. All power, everything works.
The problem is that it gets 10 miles per gallon in town. I can afford to drive it. But it doesn't make much sense with these gas prices.
05-17-2001, 11:57 AM
My personal favorite Mame ROMs are:
Cadillacs and Dinosaurs
Knights of the Round

If you haven't checked out the link at the beginning of this thread, you really should. The crap that people try to sell had me literally crying I was laughing so hard. The 15000 used teabags was just too much. Seriously, check it out!!!
