That would be a lot of fun but a little too far away. Look forward to the pictures people post around.

I have to say how impressive that setup is by the AA guys.. I mean, that's proper professional looking, could be a retro event on its own lol.. Awesome work guys.

Yeah I was surprised by that too. There was a guy over at AA converting ST games to the Jag and Gauntlet 2 was one of them. I assume that's what this is but I'm not sure.

It's on a cart, so it may be a proper port.

That looked like one great event. AA's setup was phenomenal.
Thought I'd spotted some custom controllers in all those pics. :113:

I'm looking forward to more info on the Gauntlet II carts! Is there sound on the rom that you have? I thought I read that there wasn't any, but that was a while ago.

Yes, definitely has sound. Have it loaded up in VJ right now (and forgot to turn down the volume)
It's the version from here.

Looks like Gauntlet II on cart and possibly other games could become a reality over on AA. If so, I'm excited about expanding my collection with trios of each, if possible :113:
