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 !
