Naomi Universal Candy Cabinet rebuild to Mame Cab

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought for some months ago a Naomi Virtua Striker 4 2006 Cabinet for 220€.

Wanted to rebuild it to an Mame Cab.

The first job in my todo list was to change the CRT

I found a used rarely Philips 29 PT 9521 73,7 cm (29 Zoll) 4:3 100 Hertz PIXEL PLUS with 720p/1080i for 50€

But i was disappointed about the Video Quality.

For Games it was ok . It wasnt pixelate but for configuration of mame in windows mode at 1080i or 720p it wasnt sharp enough.

So i decided to change the CRT with an LCD.

I bought a used 26" LCD with guarantee and 720p<for 110€. SAMSUNG 26" FLAT TV LCD ,HDMI, 16:9 , Chinch, Scart, VGA, HF, OSD, HD Ready ...

It was easy to fit the LCD between the Front and the Legs of the Naomi Cabinet.

Here some current Images .

I emptied the Cabinet from Triforce and Powersupply, Sega i/o and all the Looms.

Bought a little ShuttlePC XPC for Hyperspin etc for 60€.

Shuttle XPC GLAMOR SN95G5B Athlon64X2 3800+ 2GB

Nice work. Was the PC really only €60? Got yourself a bargain there!

Yes but some days later i found a 70€ ~ with 4gb ram and dualcore 3ghz Shuttle and better vga :-/

You must wait and check every day ebay ,-)

damn dude.... those cabinets are soooooo sexy. i wish those were easier to find in america

I know its exist a wood naomi cabinet in america. have it only seen one time.

the european and japanese models are plastic and metal. and need relative small space in room.

but with crt is weight over 120kilogram ^^

i took this naomi because its cheaper than other candy cabs like egret ,astro city or viewlix

Some ppl prefer sitdown variants but i am not o good in chop these metal legs :-|

so i will look for bar stools.

im pretty sure there was a parts kit that came with shorter legs. I could be wrong but im pretty sure that existed

You're right, and pretty costly that kit was too. Or you could do the chop yourself, which is what I did a couple years ago (and since, have made very little progress now it's playable....)

unkelo, nice thread, I think I'm gonna go with a horizontal mount LCD in my other machine so it's good to see this one fitting.

Thanks mattedsmith i like your chopped Naomi and the new black color.

The leg kit is to expensive like the real sega replacement kit for 29" crt with a lcd.

So its better to chop it by myself but i must disassemble all parts . thats much work ,-)

      Hello my friends.
      I am a long time Mame user and just recently finished my Verticade home made arcade cabinet.
      Download HyperV which worked immediately, spend a few hours figgering out tweaking it (add Scanlines, spinner, favourites etc.) and it just works fine, like it.
      It has 1000+ games on it and it starts up with my ~120 fave games and is working with just the buttons, very happy.
      So now I am building my Horizontade mame cabinet with my favourite horizontal games.
      So then I downloaded a Hyperspin from punkarcade with 400 top games which looks really nice. The whole menu is working, starts up in full screen and I can start up any game. But when I start up the game I get two things that I don’t like. 
      1. Mame does not startup in full screen mode and has two intentional coloured bezels left and right, how can I fix this? When I start up this mame version directly it starts up in FS without the bezels.
      2. When I use any HSL setting (like scanlines) the games run at 30-40 procent, extremely slow.
      When I start Mame myself directly I can use any visual HSL setting and all games run at 100%.
      How can I fix both these annoyances? Any help is appreciated!

      Some of stuff you can do
      create hyperspin or nointro dat from rom folder
      create mamlist.xml from rom folder
      copy roms listed in nointro or any supported xml\dat\xml format to desired rom folder
      rename your roms from any supported xml\dat\txt file and copy them to desired folder
      merge two supported xml\dat\txt file even info will be merged
      copy rom media file with game list from compatible xml\dat\txt
      much more
      compatible format are
      nonintrodat.dat (parent\clone xml) or standard 
      gamelist.xml
      hyperspin.xml(there is custom one,you can generate one as hyperspin_retrofe.xml)
      retrofe_include.txt (simple txt file with rom names)
      mameinfo.dat (only works in extract function)
      mamehistory.dat (only works in extract function)
      mamelist.xml

      So What is this?
      convert from compatible xml\txt\dat game database format to xml\txt\dat game database,
      extract story files from gamelist.xml mamhistory.dat or mameinfo.dat
      combine or merge two compatible xml\txt\dat and get one file with updated games and info
      copy rom listed in compatible xml\dat\txt from source rom folder to desired folder\rename and crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files
      scan and create xml\dat\txt from your roms folder,crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files 

      Requirement:
      Tested on windows 10 x64,should run on any windows +7 os (might run on win xp but not tested) 
      you 'll need at least one xml\txt\dat compatible file,check below in Note section
      How to use
      Simply choose the function from drop menu,click on input\output buttons,choose file type from filter drop menu in openfiledialog window,remember always provide the right file type,hyperspin need hyperspin file,nointro.dat need nointro dat file .......
      click doi it
      combine function explained:
      this tool is created to merge info from compatible xml dat xml database format.xml based on name or crc tag,the result is xml\txt\dat file with updated info added roms name and info from both file
      Associate function explained:
       associate function,input1 button should be any compatible xml\txt\dat,mediaroot should be the root folder of your rom media,example: nes media folder contain folders like snaps,title,manual,video snaps ... etc,this function will copy these media according to the name(or crc) in input1 source file
      Some Tips:
      Combine Nointro.dat+gamelist.xml=>resultfile saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml
      combine resultfile.xml+hyperspin.xml with rating tag=>final_result.xml saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml
      put the final_result.xml in RetroFE\meta\hyperlist rename it to your prefered system,make sure the name is matching the collection name in retrofe collectio dir
      delete meta.db from retrofe dir
      launch retrofe and have fun 
      ]NOTE:
      Important don't choose the wrong file always feed the right one check compatible file format above for more info
      the combine function priorties the info from input1 button when using crc as comparation,that means if you have the same game but the name in the first is different from the second input file,the first will be considered
      how to get gamelist.xml
      use scraper to get gamelist.xml for your prefered system(mame,sega,snes...) can be found https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/scraper
      put scraper inside your roms folder,ru cmd or use bat(recommended) put these commands:
       
      scraper.exe -add_not_found -console_src="gdb" -use_filename=true -download_images=false -no_thumb 
      PAUSE
       now copy the generated gamelist.xml file from your rom folder to the program folder
