If Depeche Mode reschedule their gig(s) in Latvia, Estonia or Lithuania, I'm sure I can be persuaded to pick another one up :)

That would be cool. Just hope they reschedule there gig now  ;D

Always great to see familiar faces and meeting new people. Didn't get to speak to everyone, but will hopefully catch up with those I didn't at the next meet in November (when do the tickets go up for sale?! ;))!

You can't make it to Console Combat in two months time then?

Oh yes, definitely going to Console Combat! Already bought the tickets for that and Retro Reunited.

I was just thinking ahead about the next RCM :D

Nice one Rinoa! I can't make either of those! Im away on holiday with my lovely family for CC and for RR I am at a Demo Coding Party way down south in Budleigh Salterton! :)

We will certainly have a presence at RR as I know for a fact that Vinny will be there - not sure who else though! but . . .I will see you all at RCMs next event and look forward to that!

I loved it, really did have a great time. So many nice people and plenty of games to play on. Many thanks.

Ditto that, I had a great day. Thanks to Andy and all the other organisers for such a well organised and enjoyable event!

It was good to put some names to faces, play some systems I'd not tried before and natter about games all day. Look forward to seeing some of you again at Console Combat, Retro Reunited and all the other upcoming events!

Cheers
Jon

Just thought I would thank all that obviously took great time and effort to produce what was a very intresting day out. Nice line up of machines and even a few that made me go Ooooooo !!!.. C116 & JVC MSX come to mind.

Only wish I had known earlier about the event and I would have brought some cabs and bits of my own, though the Black Acorn Atom I nipped back for seemed to cause a stir, even more when it worked....

So, looking forward to next meet in November for sure and Andy, you have my 100% support on any mad ideas you might like to implement but I aint luggin the triple screen ridge racer !!

Well done all, and very nice to meet people for the first time.

Thx

Oh, I did not know a date had been set for the next one already.

Where can I buy a ticket?  :)

What a cracking day. Many thanks to you & team for all your hard work and effort getting everything set up and for the many more that contributed. Bring the next event!!

Highlights for me were-

1) Not getting lost on the drive down.
2) After years, finally getting my mitts on a Vectrex...i'm scouring eBay now.
3) Thanks to the chap with Bartop mame cab (yellow t-molding) for answering all my Ipac related questions.
4) Thanks to Andy's father - we had a right old natter about Digital cameras & was trying out each others lenses.
5) Xenon II on th A3000.
6) Seeing how the ZX+3 modificatiions worked.
7) Superb carrot cake.

I'll be uploading most of photo's to Flickr tomorrow. Here's a sample

Cool, glad you liked that.
After speaking with many people, it seems that my A3000 is very popular.
A lot of people seem to prefer that I bring that to events rather than my A1200 that I normally take :o

That would be me! :)

Good luck with your cabinet conversion. You might find this article I wrote about mine of interest:

Thanks again mate, bookmarking it now.

I've had my cab for a while now and plan to finish it off this year. I've got all the bits i need, just need to wire it altogether and hunt out my configs for MameWah.

Once completed I like to start on a cocktail cab.

A few photo's are on my Flickr page.

Yeah, those were exactly the kind of 'hardware porn' shots I was referring to when I suggested a while back that each machine on the RCM site should have a set of 'sexy' photos...
