Final Burn isn't MAME - it's a different Arcade Emulation project altogether.

They're also working on integrating laser-disc games like 'Space Ace' and 'Dragon's Lair' into the next build of MAME.

Think that might be a reference to Derek MD (?) - a well known name of an originals supplier on the scene. Yes, it was.. If you read the scroller all the way through, he pissed off the Pompeys and their mates somehow.. (I think he rang them and acted like a wanker or something.) They refer to him a...

Back in the day I had an external floppy drive for my ST that had a Euro plug on it - I had a 'shaver plug' adapter for it that broke, so I ended up jamming an (insulated) screwdriver into the earth pin hole on the UK socket to open up the 'live' points and shoving the europlug in that way... :oops:...

York for myself as I lived there for 6 months and it's the closest to Preston, where I'd be based in the UK as it's where my folks live...

Probably won't be able to make it anyway due to being part of a family here now and can't take the time off work, but yeah, York'd be my choice..

Quick tip for Jens: If you fly with EasyJet ( http://www.easyjet.co.uk ) you can get a cheap flight from Hamburg to Bristol, which is only a short distance from Gloucester. You can also get a fairly cheap flight from Koln to Liverpool, which is only about 90 minutes drive from York. And EasyJet fly ...

There were a few Psygnosis ones there, but Baal was Psyclapse. (I think it may have been an eariler or offshoot incarnation of Psygnosis though..)

Yep, it's on Automation 132.

Didn't realise they were the same game.

If you like that one, try Conflict Europe on Automation 204 as well. :)

Yeah, Naseebs after a night out at Raiders is always a good call. I used to like Raiders (well, technically 'The Warehouse', but to the locals it'll always be Raiders). I like the 80s floor and the top floor. (Getting on a bit for the Thrash Metal floor these days.. ;) ) I started going in Jalgos (...
