Denver?
« on: November 19, 2012, 02:28:36 am »
I had a great meetup with some fellow shmuppers on some candy cabs a few weeks ago and just got back from King of Kong II here in Denver.  Who else here loves this hobby in the arcade rich city of Denver?

It was really cool!
I think the guys who put it on are KLOV scene guys.  That being said, two MAME guys won 1st and second.  I know being able to save states has helped me with some of my classic gameplay.

I took a couple of pics:

Walter Day and knucklez are super nice guys.

I was in Denver a week before the Kong Off.  The 1UP and 2UP are great arcades.  Really wish we had something like them around here.

I think I can declare an official BYOAC meetup in Denver has been held now, 2 people counts! ;)

I met up with Sharpfork last night at The 1UP barcade in Denver. My first time in an old school arcade in fifteen years! We talked shop, I learned a lot about the different variety of cabinets, and of course we dropped a lot of quarters. Seeing Space Invaders in the wild, complete with a thumping base and a well maintained cabinet was a treat. I forgot about some of the mechanical aspects of coin up amusement that were still to be found in cabinets of the eighties, like the knocker in QBert when you fell off the pyramid and lost a life).

All the cabs are in pretty good shape at the 1UP, and the controls are well maintained considering the abuse they get. The displays were also in good shape for the most part, and only 1 machine was out of order (Spy Hunter).

For the Galaga/Pac-Man titles, rapid fire/ turbo mode was active, and max lives were given. Awesome settings! I remember it was rare to find a turbo Pac in the arcades growing up, and certainly not set to max lives. Operators weren't making money off beer like at the 1UP, so no incentive to make the game any easier ;)

Titles I played last night: DK, DKjr, Pac, Ms Pac, Baby Pac, Galaga, Popeye, Qbert, Dig Dug, Satan's Hollow, Off-Road, Pac Battle Royal, BurgerTime, Space Invaders, Joust, and Marble Madness.

There will definitely have to be another meetup in the near future!

I plan on checking out the 1UP and 2UP when I'm down for the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown in April. I feel a little guilty not having visited either yet, even though I'm only 100 miles away.

I'm down for sure. 
Exidy who has alot to do with the games at the 1up and 2up chimed into the Shmups forum Denver meetup discussion.  Maybe we could cross the streams a bit and see if klov, Shmups, and byoac folks would want to meetup on an afternoon and maybe Exity could talk shop a bit.  That might be a post Feb meetup kind of thing.  Maybe April for the pinball show...

That would be great to get a good cross-board meetup going. I'm actually in the process of buying a MVS cart & pcb from Exidy over at Shmups. Small world, he messaged me about the items I was looking for, and from a link in his sig I realized he was a tech at 1up. What day of the week works best for you guys, a Sunday, weeknight, etc. ? I'm pretty flexible since I work from home. This week is shot though, but any other week this month I'm open.

I'm 50/50 at this point, my wife had something come up and I might have the kiddos.  Maybe we should try to push it out a week?

Sorry about your grandpa Furry131, that sucks.

We are having company over for dinner at 4:00 on the 24th so I would not be able to come for long.  Any room for a bit earlier?  They open at 11.

It is pretty messy down here in the Ranch with the wind, so I have to skip out on today. My schedule is wide open though the next couple weekends to try again.

I'll propose some days/times over the next couple of weeks after I sit down with the boss and see what she has scheduled for us.  ;)
Too bad we couldn't meet up but at least we get to go sledding.
