that's pretty cool. I love 80's arcade games.

Do you guys place your arcade cabinets INSIDE the theatre room? I've been debating whether to do this or not. For now I have it next to the entrance door. I think inside the room, it will look a little out of place.

Having seen your theater, I would keep it on the outside. It would take too much room and look out of place.

Actually, you would be right, but in this case that's not what happened. When I received it it was trashed, and converted to a Double Dragon cabinet of sorts... awful. Anyhow, I restored as much as I could, and then rebuilt the control panel from scratch, and MAME'd it. Sure, I could have restored it to primo Centipede condition (and I still can), but this was not like I took a good working Centipede cabinet and converting it to MAME. That is a no-no!

Thanks for caring though! Would have never done that!

The original artwork was ruined. I bought new artwork, and that is what you see there. It is silkscreened, and it is absolutely MINT!

I was thinking the same thing (I do own 5 games myself, all restored back to the original games), thanks for pointing out that you saved it....
