The King in the main showroom (instead of in his own room).

Depending on the store size, sometimes if there wasn't enough room to put The King in his own separate room he would be put into the main showroom opposite the balcony stage (and later C-Stage).

In these smaller PTT locations they would have some kind of special circuit (someone who knows more about it can elaborate) that would make sure that The King would not come on when the main balcony show was playing (and vice-versa).

Examples:






I just love the idea of being able to look to the right and seeing a balcony, and then looking left and seeing The King. :)

King characters were moved into showrooms with the addition of the early Cybervision system. Some stores just cut window openings in the wall between the adjacent room (Simi Valley). I assume there might have been stores that just expanded the main room into the adjacent lounge as well.

The Cyber system would start the King using the old coinbox/button feature of the King computer. The King would play in a main stage intermission if a Birthday show was not selected. The system was called a "Combo" system and the King E-PROM provided random movements.

Ah, okay I pretty much stopped going to CEC by the time Cybervision/Cyberstar was being phased in. My PTT had King in a separate room running on his own Cyberamic system (I assume...). This would have been before the S-VHS tapes when they were using reel-to-reel tapes.

King actually never had a video/cyber star controller of his own. Until the end, he used the reel to reel tape and original show computer. The last show was 'King 95'... and it was on a 7inch reel.

It's just so crazy how they never programmed him to his full potential.
Not even talking about how they could have easily added more movements.
But with what they had, they couldn't take a bit more effort and program him more.

SO much more potential, my King proves that.
I'll never understand that.

Oh well~~!
BYEBYE Past hello FUTURE KING!
