hmmm let me think for a while ..... hehe
i think i was 12 years then back in the days, when a friend and me wanted to go to a arcade.
so it was the first time i was in a arcade, we started to play some games.
the we seeing a bunch of ppl around 1 cabinet, so we wanted to know what games it was, and yea it was KI.
so we waited to see it and also wanted to play it hehe after a long time waiting i finaly started to play.
and from that time i started to go to the arcade more and play KI more.
i started to go ones every week and from ones a week it became almost every day after school.
i also became one of the best KI players of my town (there where some ppl better then me).
so after a year or 2 after my first day the local arcade owner told me there conna be a new KI next week.
i was like what really ..... when when when what day and what time its gonna be here.
so that day i went back just when they opend, i was looking around but no new KI
i ask the owner, wheres the new ki ? oh it will come later today.
so after a few hours ther was a truck stopping in front of the arcade, they opend the back and there it was KI2 not 1 but 2 of them.
i stick verry close to the cabinets hehe and when with them to to place where they gonna put it.
and i was the first 1 in my town that was playing KI2.
so years been passing by.
after +-4 years they desided to move the KI2 cabinets to a other arcade far away from where i live.
but they KI was staying
they had it like for 10 years.
now my friend wanted to make me jelly, so he did buy a cabinet from KI (but the game was not working).
yea it was cool to see the cabinet in his room but it was not working.
so he took out the harddrive from it and whent to the arcade with it, they wanted to help him,
and first thing they did was putting it in there cabinet -> power on -> there cabinet whent dead also
also from that time the arcade over here went down a short after they closed.
so years with no KI to play anymore
last year my friend and me decided to repair his cabinet and game (i just wanted to play again)
so i whent looking on the internet for parts (also got my hand on some KI pcb board) and i really wanted to have a cabinet for myself to
so i started to make some plans for to build my own cabinet (and last winter it hapend
i got my own working KI arcade machine now at my home)
(btw we still need to finish repair my friend's cabinet hehe, just his cabinet his KI game is working again to)
and here's my cabinet.
