After one long ass weekend, here is the current state of the Flackening.
Completed the deal for the Multi-Williams 19-in-1 yesterday. Got rid of 6 cabinets ... that leaves me with 10:
Road Riot 4WD
Super Off Road
The first four machines on that list (720, MAME, 48-in-1, Multi-Williams), I'll be keeping. 720 will have to live out in the garage for the time being; the other three are coming inside and going upstairs.
Of the remaining six, three (Commando, Centipede, and Rampart) are working and ready to sell, while the other three (Road Riot 4WD, Super Off Road, and Road Blasters) all have issues of varying degrees.
With the six machines I got rid of yesterday, that made it to where all the machines I own will now fit in my garage. It's been an unbelievable non-stop weekend, my knees are throbbing and my shins are beat all to hell, but I have now completely emptied out my storage unit.
I brought the Multi-Williams in the house earlier, just to get it inside and to let it warm up. I got to playing it and, although the emulation is a little wonky on some of the games ... I had fun. I actually had fun playing an arcade game, and it's been a long time since that happened. I also rubbed the paint off in a couple of spots while moving it and I'm actually looking forward to patching those up. I've been so overwhelmed over the past several years by having so many projects that I'm actually looking forward to working on this machine a little, and I REALLY can't remember the last time I felt this way. It's a good thing. A good, good thing.
(That's not its final resting place ... but that's where it's staying for the night.)
