HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Re: An interesting NES...

What a brilliant gift from your grand-parent' s friends. When I get the chance I'll have a look to see if we have them on the shelves at the museum.  It may take some time to check the cartridge though as we are in the middle of moving the software library into a different room (we needed more space for the VR machines).

I'm looking forward to been there on the Sunday, only sorry that I'd already arranged to take my son to a University open day on the Saturday.

ARCADE / Mortal Kombat secret that was hidden for over 20 years

Just found out about an Easter egg hidden in Mortal Kombat for the last 20 years.

That's got to be worth a try the next time I get to the museum and play with the MAME cabinet there.

GAMING EVENTS - OPEN DAYS 2016 / Re: OPEN WEEKEND - 6/7th February 2016

I've just heard Andy giving an interview to Johnathan Lampon on BBC Radio Leicester, to say this guy liked what is saw would be an understatement.  That should bring along a few people this weekend.

David

You can hear the interview online for the next few days on

it's about 8 mins and 10 seconds into the Johnathan Lampon show

RCM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Re: We did it . . .

Give me another two weeks and my back may have just about gotten over it.  But apart from aching in places I did not know I had places, I have to admit to feeling very proud of what we have managed to achieve. Although I wasn't always sure we could pull it off.

After the first weekend when so many wonderful people came and helped putting everything in to boxes and taken them to the new building, we had huge mounds of computers, software, books and magazine that seemed to completely fill every room.  At that time we still hadn't moved the Virtual Reality machines or all the systems that were out on display for the public to play with.  I must admit to thinking  we could never find enough space to fit in everything and still have space for all the new features that Andy wanted in the new building.  Yet thanks to a lot of help, and the experience of a couple of veterans of previous moves, by the last Sunday somehow the mess you can see in Andy's Facebook video that he posted on Thursday the 14th has transformed into rooms fit for the public. I don't want to prematurely announce all the exciting new things that make the new building a better place to come and visit compared to our old building, I'll let Andy do that when he's ready, but I promise you, it's definitely going to be worth coming to visit Leicester for.

OK, so we are not quite there yet.  For example the magazine collection still needs sorting and the software room needs more shelves.  You can see Andy's appeal on Facebook for Billy bookcases from Ikea, and come to think of it, a few more Hejne shelves for the storage area wouldn't hurt either.  But, we're getting there and it's looking amazing and really very exciting.

So I would like repeat Andy and say thank you so much to everyone who gave up their time to help, I hate to imagine the state my back would be in now without all the help we had to share the load.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hi Eddie,

Welcome to the RCM.  Have you seen the repair logs posted on this forum by Womble? The man is amazing.  They include a couple of TMNT repairs you may find interesting. Search this forum for 'TMNT repair log womble'.  Then when you have a bit more time to spare time read some of his other repair logs, you will be blown away with what he does with a Vindicator.

Hi Stu, you're right that it's going pretty well and by the weekend moving out of the old building will not the issue. But there is so much work to do sorting out the mountain of stuff that we need to find a home for, that we still need all the help we can get. We have to get the new building fit for visitors, the first event at the new building is next month.

Unfortunately my wife Diane has to go to the GP tomorrow (Thursday) so has had to withdraw her offer of help and she is uncertain about Friday.

David

Update: Diane can not make it but my friend Jason has agreed to help.

Don't worry, your family must always come first, hope he's feeling better now. If I'm honest, we did missed your shelf condensing skills today as we have managed to fill another 7 shelves.

My wife Diane has just offered to come a help again Monday morning, Tuesday afternoon, Thursday morning and Friday till 3.

ARCADE / Re: Another Namco Pacland Repair Log

I should have realized your reply would have been as detailed as your repair logs. Thank you. Have some more kudos.

Would you have documented a Vindicator bonfire as well everything else? glad you didn't.

My wife Diane has just confirmed that she is not going to be working on Saturday the 9th and has offered to help out. She may be available for some other days but can not sure due to her 0 hours contract.
