Here are our projects of arcade and game consoles renovation!
We contribute to the safeguard of our gaming heritage.
A bit more of experience, a bit more of budget… let’s do it again with a “new” carcass.
The latter is in a quite appalling state. It will have to be restored before we can deal with the system.
A carcass from 1993 in a quite appalling state, with missing pieces…
But with elbow grease and motivation, it’ll be alright!
A MVS slot with a 161 in 1 will complete this new project!
After experiencing quite everything on the European market, it was time to get to the root. I needed the Arcades’ Royce Rolls. I needed a Japanese one!
What happiness! Everything is perfectly optimized… We notice very well the quality work.
I decide now to try the Queen of the Japanese Arcades, the NAC.
A TOSHIBA monitor (Nanao MS9), so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes.
I fit it with a MVS slot and with a 161 in 1 which really is one of the best of such cards.
Namco arcade from the 2000s, with a Naomi motherboard, it’s obviously JVS wired and has a 50” triband frequency overhead projector…15-24-31 Khz.
You can imagine my wife’s face when I brought it home…
La borne est de 1995, de NAMCO sur system 22.
Rave Racer is a race video game launched in 1995.
The monitor and the overall condition aren’t great…I want to do it up!
I couldn’t let my stepfather not having an arcade: through getting to know the environment, he succumbed…that is when a René PIERRE arcade rose from its ashes…
Ah! Family and friends…but I love doing that!
We often mention the “Wow!” effect. Concerning the arcades, there is the “I want one!” effect.
This is how it happened with my brother…here we go again!
One more “I want one!” effect with my buddy Frakasss.
We went to get the carcass together, and I get to work again: “sanding, resin, painting, etc etc…”
I left it to him to finish with the brand and the bezel…
I got a Vewlix arcade in good general state but with a LCD screen close to the end of its life…
I decided then to renovate it… and change the screen, which is no easy task as the screen fixation system isn’t a simple VESA!
The Game Boy DMG-001, called FAT, is a legendary game console: it’s robust, massive and its hand grip remains unforgettable.
But it didn’t favor clandestine gaming in the evening under the quilt!
I’ll put that right!
The Game Boy Advance console is the best of the collection thanks to its exemplary ergonomics.
Howeveeeer! Its screen is far from being as good as the one from the GBA SP consoles that are equipped with the excellent AGS-101 screen…
We are going to make it PERFECT!
