If you're making jerky, I want some.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

You bring your wares, he brings his, and we have a true BYOAC/ZapCon Sausagefest...

I've got two acolytes making cider now.  The second one brought a sample over last night and it was damned tasty. If the three of us can do it, anybody can.

But enough about that, I want to hear more about the jerky.

I was planning on going but... fortunately my wife is due to give birth to our first child April 11th. We have been working on getting prego for years. We are super excited.
Congrats bro!  Better build your projects NOW. You won't have time later. Trust me...

DeL

:) Thanks man! I know it.... I am trying to get it in while I can. My buddy just picked up on the hobby so if anything I can always bum off of his builds to keep me sane from time to time. He just picked up a Sega Turbo, and tomorrow we picking up an Operation Wolf.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Will do. The Marriott people seem to be a bit disorganized so that code doesn't seem to come out until close to showtime.

Mexican, you've been kicking the tire so much it's shaped like an oval now. Until we bro hug on the show floor, I'm gonna put you down as a perpetual maybe.

Making an effort this time. Looking forward to meeting Yots, HBM (harveybirdman for you nubs), Haruman and Mal if he can make it. Ond too, but he's traveling a hellava lot more than the rest of us so I'd understand if he doesn't go. Pbj could prove fun, and Howard_Castrated could be deliciously awkward. Couldn't care less for the rest of you, but who knows I might be pleasantly surprised.
Kinda disappointed that Ark isn't a --cream-filled twinkie-- in person, I'd rather meet assholio Ark than the boring incognito nice guy brit Ark. I've met a lot of "nice people" in my life, these days "real people" only interest me. I mean, why hide behind a keyboard? Just own it. I'm coming as my elitist ---uvula--- self, love it or leave it...I've made my bed.
I'll own up to anything I've said on these forums IRL, you wanna confront me about it, so be it. I stand behind my words.

But why all the spy games, Ark? You think you're James Bond or something?

Like I said before, people in this hobby are two faced.  One minute you are a --cream-filled twinkie--, the next minute you are with people you would invite over for drinks.  It is all very peculiar, but I find it is best to be one of the crowd, then center of attention.  That's a job for Yots.  Since the start of this thread, there has been glaring examples of this peculiar behavior early on.  One would think it was in jest, or a derivative of some chemical imbalance.

I have a few other hobbies that have a social element, that are more welcoming by the individuals hosting.  That says a lot about this crowd, but there are notable examples that are the exception, and probably due to them being the mods in here.  So incognito I will stay and enjoy the setting without the disappointment of social entanglements.  I definitely do not want my day out, to enjoy some arcade nostalgia, to be shaken or stirred.  Thanks.
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

Have fun hiding in the shadows. You can lurk there with Grey_Area. At least he made an effort to talk to Vigo.

See what I mean?  He means well, and I should not steal this thunder when making plans for the next event, like I have that much sway on this board.  I do like his father-esque approach throughout this thread as it is rather quaint, and ridiculous at the same time.  Like a modern day Don Quixote.

If this whole thread is to plan your activities why not post this in the Meet Up section of the website.  You guys have started something related up there already.  How about we ask the mods to move this thread up there?  I can ask some friends of industry to help you fund next year's Zapcon, if that is not beneath you.
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

Clearly you have never been to ZapCon if you think the event needs any sort of funding. It does quite well on its own, and has for 5 years now.

I don't think thus thread needs to be moved, I think you need to kindly stay out of it unless you plan to participate. The purpose of this thread is to network with those interested or committed to going and who want to have some fun as a group. It's also meant to inform people who are not familiar with the event but would like to come. Since you are not interested in that, I suggest you find other reading materials.

I really think there is no place in this forum for Ark. He is just a troll. Mister ROM policeman that completely reversed himself. He has a lot of nerve calling anyone two faced.

We should do some team events at ZapCon 18.

The last arcade event I was at we shook things up a bit and teamed up with the gameplay. Here are some examples:

- Blind Frogger - One person wears a blindfold and plays the game while their teammate calls out the moves

- Robotron - One person controls movement, the other teammate controls shooting

- Street Fighter - One person controls movement, the other teammate controls attacks. (4 total people on SF...so get comfortable)

- Pinball - One person controls the left flipper, the other teammate controls the right flipper.

You get the idea. It's fun and even draws a crowd. Keeps it social and everyone gets to know each other pretty well. Requires you to develop a strategy and makes you play the games in a whole different manner.
If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

Yeah, I saw that VW. I'd like to pick your brain on that and maybe even get some related badges going! Thanks!

Fine. All I can do is offer.  It seems that you have informed me of my qualifications to attend.  I was going to bring my whole company and family down to your venue.  Thanks for talking me out of it.  It now sounds like a place not to bring children to.  Way to go brother!   :cheers:
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

I'm done engaging you in this thread. You are more than welcome to attend. All are welcome with open arms (except K). But unless you are planning to interact with those us excited and planning to have a good time, I'm not interested in discussing anything further with you.

So anyway, for those of you that have come before, I've got an idea for the Friday night meet up which is a bit different than years past. I'm going to pick your brains via PM to get some feedback. Stay tuned!

Sorry I got the thread side-tracked.  It was probably a long shot that I would have got to go anyway, but it might be best if I don't attend.  I seem to bring out the worst in people anymore for whatever reason and I'm just tired of fighting.

Don't be silly - we have a great time together. We're there for a love of classic games and a sense of community. Plus, the only rule, and I've said it before the last two times - no beefs. You leave that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- behind the keyboard. There haven't been any issues. When I saw DeL and Malenko take a selfie together two years ago, I knew we were on to something special. I refuse to let any guest, especially someone who comes from out of state, to feel unwelcome.

You'd have a great time, Howard - I hope you make it out one day.

You are a good guy Yots.  Not a lot of those left.

I think we all are. I'm not kidding when I say I'd really love for Steve to make it out. I think he needs a kind of joy and camaraderie in his life.
