Hello everyone.

I'm Dean from Northants. Owned a jamma cab for a few years, had Alpha 3, Armed Police Batrider, Mexico 86 and some MVS stuff. All sold on about 8 years ago before moving house. I was never *that* into it, just fulfilling the dream of Younger Dean. Continued to mess with Rasp Pi/Mame etc.

Anyway, a trip to Arcade Club stoked the fires again. Hearing Robocop shout "drop it!" from across the arcade, surprising myself by still being able to get to level 4 on R-Type on one life... etc. What a magical place that is.

So now I want back in the game. And after a first-ever trip to Revival and seeing what I now know to be converted Dino King vabs belonging to a couple of guys here, that's what I have my heart set on.

Work at a videogames company in MK.

@Flinnster: On the day I didn't know if the banner on the window behind you was the name of the company that made those cabs. Didn't realise they were converted and owned by enthusiasts at the time. Fair play though, great little machines and brilliant work on the convert. I'm in love.

Welcome on board. Great place Arcade Club and Revival looked very good this year. I've still to start on my DinoKing conversion since buying it last year - far too many projects, never enough time...
