lecture: Preserving arcade games

Cab6

Old-school arcade games were so protected that hacking is the only way to preserve them before all boards are dead, and the games are lost.

- an overview of famous old-school arcade games
- their incredible hardware
- the permanent piracy
- the awesome protections (designed to commit suicide !)
- what was required to preserve some of them from being lost for ever.

This talk is a homage to Michael Steil's Ultimate Commodore 64 presentation at 25c3: you should watch it, it's inspiring in content and quality !
