  1. Hello spinners & pinners, My name is Josh White and I've been making some custom Pinball cab designs for members. I started with Dazz's Twilight Tribute HyperPin 2125 at the Texas Pinball Convention in March this year. Since then I've done a few more designs and wanted to offer my services. I'm a broadcast senior graphic designer with 18 years’ experience in design for tv, print & web. I've got my BFA in Art at the University of Rhode Island and started working for NBC out of college. We moved around the country a few times and now our family lives in Texas. I love making design work for people. This venture is a true calling back to my roots as an artist learning about out Art History and making creative design work. TV pays the bills but this is more fun! I’ve been offering a 20% discount for gold members. I charge $25 an hour and send samples throughout the build. We start with the basic concept then get going on the elements needed for the cab. I can design standup arcade machines as well. Marquees, instruction decals, control panels, the whole deal. I'm quick with all the programs designers use today. I run both Mac & PC at home. 2D, 3D - all the Adobe stuff. I have tons of experince in digital design which saves you time and money. I'm working with Bowman Signs in Connecticut, all my designs have been printed by Bradley and we are working on creating some generic design cabs that can easily be customized and made to spec. His shop is second to none and I enjoy seeing his prints on member’s cabs, they look outstanding! Please check out my work and let me know if you'd like to hire me for your next project. Thank you, all the best! Josh
  2. We're very excited to announce that Rec Room Masters has become a partner of HyperSpin. Any Rec Room Masters customer receives a 20% HyperSpin discount! If you've been considering getting a cabinet just take a look at their site here and it'll definitely get your blood pumping! On top of the various cabinet builds they offer they also provide custom art services so it's definitely a good option for anyone dreaming about a specific build too. Happy gaming!
  3. Final preparation

    Well, I'm finally going to have some time to build my cabinet... took awhile, darn career getting in the way of my games! Anyway, I have several issues I'd like to hear opinions and advice on, but I just realized I left all my notes and schematics at work. I'll add more questions and corrections later, since my memory may not be 100% accurate. Basic design info: about 7 feet tall, 36" wide, and 36" deep (without control panel, which I plan on making removable). 4-player U360 with (10) rgb buttons per player, (2) aimtrak, (1) rgb trackball with (3) system rgb buttons. 40" LCD, 5.1 sound, secondary and tertiary LCD's, LCD marquee. Emulating arcade and console games. 1. I would like to have glass or plexiglass over the screen. I like the "depth" feeling from standard arcade cabinets with the monitor behind a protective layer. I think I would prefer glass over plexi for this application. My questions are: (a) is there a material type that better minimizes glare? (b) how much of a gap between the screen and the glass? (c) what angle off the vertical should the glass and screen be mounted, keeping in mind possible reflections from screen onto glass? (d) "smoked" glass looks cool, but does it dull colors or otherwise impair viewing? I will be playing some games in 1080p. 2. I would like to have glass or plexiglass over my control panel's artwork: (a) I do not want any visible screws/clamps/etc. The buttons will hold it in place, but will I need to secure it better (especially near edges)? (b) also, the edge must look good. T-molding to cover both plexi and wood, or any other options? (c) for this application glass has great advantages, but since it will receive more wear and tear, maybe plexi is better? (d) what angle off the horizontal should the top of the panel be (I think my design was close to 5 degrees)? 3. I want hinges to lift the top of my control panel: (a) need to be able to access Ipac/interface and controls for maintenance (a) must be heavy-duty enough to lift the panel with all electronics attached and hold open (b) when closed, all seams/lines should be as invisible as possible 3. T-molding for side panels' edges? (a) I kinda like keeping the wood slightly rounded, smoothly sanded, and painted a relevant color for the artwork, but am worried about the edge of the vinyl artwork looking crappy if there is nothing to butt up against. Anyone tried both and can compare? (b) I had planned on using 1/2" plywood. I'm aware of positives/negatives of it vs. MDF. If I use T-molding, however, it seems that options and varieties of T-molding in 1/2" is quite limited. I thus figured 3/4" plywood would be better for the sides (I was already using some for other parts that needed a little more strength than the 1/2"), but still want to keep the weight down. I guess I don't have a specific question about this, just wondering what other people have done and think? 4. Casters for movability? (a) Originally, I planned on putting casters in the rear two corners, and solid feet in the front two. Now I'm thinking I will rarely have to re-position the cabinet, so not only will this be unnecessary, but the casters may allow a little more "wiggle" than solid feet, which in the heat of competitive play may be annoying. Has anyone tried this with good/bad results? (b) What kind of feet should I use? I figure I should leave at least a 1/4" gap between cabinet and ground to allow both airflow and the possibility that carpet or soft flooring may affect how close the cabinet really is to the floor. If there are four feet, the cabinet may teeter if they are not adjustable. 5. USB and other inputs? (a) I will put a powered USB hub right below the screen for Aimtrak guns, gamepads, and other needs. Is there any need for 3.0 USB? Is there a simple way to secure the Aimtrak/gamepad cables so they are not accidentally unplugged/damaged during gameplay? (b) Bliss-Box? I read a bit about it, but need more info. I had purchased an NES-to-USB adapter and was disappointed with the lag... impossible to play Tyson's Punch Out... but Bliss-Box looks promising. (c) I also plan on having an I/O for ethernet, TV coaxial, headphones/mic, and power. Are there any others I should consider? Thanks everyone. Just reading through others' posts has been immensely valuable, and I truly appreciate it. I'll post some pictures when I actually start cutting and things look like they are taking shape. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions until then.
  4. I've seen a couple of online stores which sell parts I will need to build a bar top cabinet. I wanted to know if this board has a specific one stop shop for everything or do you all search different sites for different parts? Can you please provide some online stores that you use? that would be great since i'll be purchasing the parts very soon and would like to compare prices EDIT: Admin. If possible please move this thread. it was not meant for Pinball machines but for hyperspin arcade cabinets.
  5. Hi, My husband and I own a small cabinet shop. Recently We've reseived an email from some software developers offering us the app for designing cabinets and calculating the price of a kitchen. It is called Online 3D kitchen constructor http://prodboard.eu/kitchen/ I know that it's a good point that we should use a program to help us in our business, and it seems quite a nice solution, a rental program, by the way, but who knows. So I would highly appreciate if you could give me some advice on this particular software, whether it is worth paying for. Thanks in advance,
  6. Im looking in to building a Virtual pinball machine and wanted to get the most out of the hardware and was thinking about making a 2 in 1 cabinet. Has anyone done this? I've done some sketches of what i was thinking.... just wondering if anyones has got any thoughts.
  7. Here is a link to my build gallery: http://imgur.com/gallery/fer2m
  8. 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 Changed the Controlpanel . New RGB Led Buttons IPac-FS32 + Pacled64 Now the Bezel with Protectglass and mount new Speakers + amp is still todo. And new Artworks. Here a 3D Model of the Naomi Candy Cabinet of the SitDown and StandUp version. https://sketchfab.com/models/5176f1f4aa5e47e68aa879aa4f4d7550 Thats all for the Moment. Greetings uNkeLo
  9. Its in need of a bit of a polishing around the sides, but is now up and running... Yes that is a beer fridge built into the base! Update, bought second hand Xbox 360 remotes (retro joystick just not suited for N64 and Dreamcast) and have stripped and replaced with mod kit to match unit colour
  10. Hello all, my cabinet project is coming to a close, and I'm just starting to post some videos on it. Please enjoy, and let me know if you have any comments, questions, or advice! Part 2: Part 3: I will post more videos to this topic as they are finished out. Thank you for checking it out, JonesyBoy
  11. Hello Everybody, I'm turning an old royal Video (Neo Geo) Cabinet into an modern design Cabinet. I bought this cabinet 10 years ago and left it at my parents house. It has been dead for a few years so i decided to make it a hyperspin cabinet. I want it in the livingroom but my wife wasn't very happy about that. To make her a little bit happier I want the cabinet look like an eames design chair. Wood on the outside and and black. So i bought black buttons and removed the bezelart and tinted the glas over the monitor black. Put in an old 22" crt vga monitor i got for free. A xin - Mo decoder and new black buttons. I bought a secondhand pc with a i7 2600k 3.2Ghz Processor and a nvidia GT530 2GB.2 external USB ports on the outside and extra buttons on the side for pinball. I made a new marquee of plexiglass 5mm printed with black and white with the hyperspin logo. Next step is to make the joystickpanel black with vinyl and but the black buttons in and i ordered wood vinyl for the side of the cabinet. I wil post new pictures when i'm done. Regards Leo (CenobiteNL)
  12. I made a couple of various decals for my cab and I just wanted to see if there's any intrest in them. I work as a graphic designer at a print shop so I design and print these badboys by myself. I just wanted to check if there's any interest in them? I am currently building a webshop for them. I can take preorders right now and you will receive a discount. A full set is priced at 99.00$USD. Prices are including shipping without tracking. The material: The decals are printed on on solvent printer/plotter, the material is high quality vinyl, "JAC 8110" to be precise. It's high gloss and easy to apply, especially if you wet apply it. The ink is water proff. The decals come precut and have about an inch of bleed on the edges for easy fitting. The art is high resolution for a high quality print, no jpeg artifacts here. A full set includes the following: 1. Left panel (48X60cm with bleed) 1. Right panel (48X60cm with bleed) 1. Control panel (52X23cm with bleed) 1. Front panel (52X16cm with bleed) 1. Back panel (52,5X54cm with bleed) 1. Marque (47,5X11,2cm with bleed) My personal cab: They can also be resized if you give me the measurements of your cab. The themes I have made so far are: Metal Slug/Neo Geo: Street fighter: Mortal Combat: Sonic/Sega: Mix and match the way you like. A couple of more themes are planned. Post any questions here and I'll try to reply to them as quick as I can. I accept payments trough paypal, or if you live in Sweden you can pay me directly to my bank account. Detailed view:
  13. Took far longer than I expected and I'm easily 60+ hours invested. Over 110 games are represented. The rules were: -Every game/series shown must have had an actual arcade machine at some point. -Use interesting art instead of game art whenever possible. -No CG art -All games must be iconic, classics or be important to me in some way. Obviously this is a low quality file. The actual image is 73" tall almost 40" wide, 300 DPI and over a gig in size. Time to have it printed! So what do you think?

  15. Latest project pictures: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi all, since I was a kid i've been facinated by arcade machines. Once I grew older and got a job I've always wanted to buy an original arcade cabinet. However, time flew by and money was short so I never got to buy one. Recently I discovered hyperspin and the urge to get myself an arcade cabinet got bigger and bigger. As time whent by I met myself a girl and got married. She doesn't like the looks of an arcade cabinet so the final option I've got to get my dream is to build one myself that my wife doesn't find "ugly". I will be posting the progress here and when I'm finished I'll try to make some tutorials and maybe even a new global theme. Since I'm a graphic designer and not so good with hardware and powertools I might also be asking for some advice along the way. Last week i've sketched something in Adobe Illustrator that was inspired on some designs I found on the internet. It suits my needs and also my wife's. I've also learned how to use Google Sketchup and started to draw out the cabinet in Sketchup. Doing so lead to some questions. But before I ask them this is what i've got so far: I ran into one issue whilest designing this cabinet in sketchup: since I'm using angles and have no miter saw for big boards (70cm x 18mm x 90cm) I will be having gaps. I was thinking to fill them with woodfiller then sand and paint them so they look like one part, would that be a good idea ? Cheers and untills soon.
  16. This is my final result for my arcade cabinet i built. Let me know what you think. Thank you.
  17. Based the design off the WeeCade but hand drew it onto the mdf(3/4). Was going to go with a strictly classics single player cab with six buttons for things like MK2 and SF2, but I got my hands on a free computer with a PhenomX4(only 1.8Ghz) and 4Gb of ram, so I decided to do more with it. Running Hyperspin with hand selected MAME games (around 110 so far), SNES, NES, Genesis, N64 and Computer games. I threw this one together for ~$200 between buying Tmolding, paint, primer, sandpaper, acrylic, misc cords, fans, speakers, amp, etc. I had the buttons, computer was given to me with the 640gb hdd. and I got the monitor(17") at goodwill for $25, also had a few misc items lying around. Audio amp from Amazon, small form factor 300W PSU. Soldered in a power strip to the C-14 outlet. Also the back of the custom button inlay Custom plexy speaker shrouds. Still not sure if I want to seal them or let the light shine through. I kinda like them how they are Mixed blue and white buttons and a Sanwa Joystick. Had an old leaf switch joystick in there, but it sucked. Wires and oldschool ipac that I had bought from a cousin last year USB and audio out for headphones. Fan exhaust and custom power button. Standard arcade button was too long and wouldn't allow the door to close so I cut it and put a smaller button inside and hot glued the crap out of it. Works great and is recessed enough that you cant accidentally bump it. Did the same with the USB port. The paint finish turned out AMAZING. Used high gloss rattlecan; primed x3 with wet sanding in between, then 5x coats of gloss white with wet sanding in between. you can see your reflection in it.
  18. I just wanted to share my arcade cabinet and the final results. The actual build took about two weeks and the last three to four months I invested in getting each and every emulator to work properly. The first boot was somewhere in December 2013 configured with hyperspin 1.0 and hyperHQ. In march I updated to HyperlaunchHQ. I just love the old arcade games via Mame and are now completely hooked to pinball (FP). Used I-Pac for the buttons and Pac-Drive and LedBlincky (registered) for led support. Ever since December the cabinet is used every week and even my wife is now hooked . This week I will install some custom Mortal Kombat side art and consider this project finished! I learned a lot from all you guys out there who build their own cabinet and shared their experiences and knowledge via this forum. I thank you all . Up next is my pinball cabinet which I plan to build in the upcoming weeks/month(s).
  19. Hey guys! I'm working on getting everything needed to build my cabinet and was just stuck on once piece of the puzzle. I'm not too sure how the wiring of the internals should work if i want to connect the bartop to the wall outlet using a single plug. I mean i know i could use a power bar and have a switch in the back to turn it on and off, but i dont think constantly cutting the power to my internal PC and monitor would play out too well in the long run. As well, I've been looking for methods on mounting the motherboard inside my cabinet on the threads but couldn't find anything concrete. I know the board has to get in there somehow but i'm not sure how exactly. Like do i just screw it into the base of the cab, or do i attach it to a metal case then place the case on the bottom. I know my question's pretty vague but anything helps.. THANK YOUU
  20. MAME Cocktail Cabinet setup

    Hello All, I am looking to build a cocktail style cabinet. Just 2 players (joystick on each end...not along the side). My question is regarding joysticks. Is there a list or spreadsheet (or a way of searching MAME) to find which roms use a 4 way joystick and which ones use 8 way? I currently have an upright acrade that uses the Mag-Stick from Ultimarc...that switches between 4/8. This works fine, but i would like to use just a 4-way joystick if possible...but not sure how many games i will sacrifice if i choose that option. Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.
  21. Hello. Sorry if this might soon like a noob's question. I'm currently working on a cabinet with a friend. So far we haven't decided on anything specific, and are still in the planning stages. I'd like to add a screen at the top of the cabinet, which could display a few things, like the name of the system used, or the game, or both, or even an artwork of it. The main problem is, I have no idea of what I should look for, both for hardware or software. - Are there any small screens that I could buy somewhere to act as a second monitor and put on top of the cab? - Or should I go for a LED display, if so which would be best/offer the most configuration options? - As for the software, how does it work? What should I install/buy ? Do any Hyperspinners here have a working solution already, if so what do you use? I have a lot of questions on the matter, thanks in advance for your answers.
  22. And so it begins!

    I have been talking about building a cabinet for years and finally have started. I will be building a 4 player control panel style that hooks up to any TV with an HDMI cable. One cool thing about my cabinet is that I designed my own controller. I want to be able to light all my buttons and joysticks with an RGB LED and configure my buttons and joysticks as keyboard inputs, mouse inputs or joystick inputs but there was no controller that could do everything an it would have cost over $250 to get what I wanted and required 5+ circuit boards. I am an Electronics Engineer so I said screw it and I designed my own! So the Howler Controller was born: Here are what the specs WILL be for my controller (Hardware 100% operational, working on firmware now): 4 Joysticks (each with RGB LED drive) - Each joystick consists of 4 inputs and 3 LED drive outputs (for RGB lit joysticks). Inputs can be configured as buttons if joystick operation is not needed. - Each joystick can be configured as a USB keyboard, USB Digital Joystick, USB Analog Joystick, USB mouse (for spinners and trackballs) 26 buttons (each with RGB LED drive) - Each button consists of 1 input and 3 LED drive outputs (for RGB lit buttons) - Each button can be configured as a USB Keyboard keypress, USB Joystick button press, or USB Mouse Button press Other features: - Each LED has 255 levels of brightness for 16 MILLION color combinations! - Working on config program which allows unlimited configuration combinations of USB Keyboard, USB Mouse and USB Joysticks (multiple). - Requires only 1 USB connection per circuit board. - USB controller is powered from USB and LEDs are powered with external supply (+3.3V to +12V, whatever user chooses) - Total number of LEDs that can be individually controller (255 levels) is 92! 3x as much as other controllers! - Working on command line program to set LEDs so that it may be integrated with Hyperspin to set button/joystick colors for each individual game. (NES games will light up 2x RED buttons, TMNT arcade will light up each controller as the original arcade did (purple, blue, orange, red!). I will be posting more pics of my cabinet as it gets built. If anyone is interested in my controller, let me know!
  23. First off I need to throw out some thanks to a few people before I get into it. Winsor Plywood for their free rough-cuts and great prices. (Perfect cuts I must add) MemoryExpress for their computer parts that work! PladiumStore for a one stop shop for all my parts (Canadian) Home Depot for everything else! My dad for his help! My best friend Dave for his guidance when I was frustrated. Last but not least, hyperspin forums for all the information and helpful users. Well it's been a long 3 weeks or so! I started this build Canada Day weekend. I based my build off of the cabinet plans ridicrick included in his origonal post (HERE) I had to make some changes as I went along as there were some angles and measurements that were unclear. The hardest part was cutting the sides and having them not overlap each other! Man was it tight. But once I had the carboard template ready I was set! I have to tell you, melamine is not the easiest material to work with. It's great for some things, and touchy for others. All I have to say is make sure you have a good quality dewalt ratcheting skrewdriver! They are the best! (stole my brothers) His wood routing with the template bit idea was essential for doubling the sides. The only thing I was missing was the T-Moulding cutter which I bought at GroovyGamerGear. It would have costed me more money to buy it locally than it did online with shipping from the USA. Ok so I have lots of pictures and attachments for reference and I will do my best to explain them. I also have a couple video's that I took when I got the PC working. I'm not "DONE" as I still have to get vinyl for all the white surfaces, the control panel is still kind of a mess and I need to get seating. All in good time though! Day 1 and 2 Summary: Day 3 Summary: Weekend 2: T-Molding Time!
  24. Hi Hyperspin Community, I will start here my Custom Build of a Tron Legacy Theme Cabinet. 1st i am thought is better to plan and build it in cad/3d programs, to see eventually mistakes. So i show at the moment only some scratches And from Time to Time i will post here the progress of the work. I am not so fast because i need to spare some money for some of the stuff. Now here some Pics http://www.3d-artworks.de/view?uID=12&id=8d766f4b88462cf07a2339a22e26fe6a Sry for bad texture , i am not so good in it. Greetings uNkeLo
