Looks great! What are the specs of the rig in the cabinet?

No worries, I think it's important to show support to people and encourage them! I had to ask about the specs, as I know people will be curious. That Rig's not to be sniffed at...it's got some poke to it :)

Funny how music can do that, isn't it? I'm more of a "Hokuto No Ken/Fist Of The North Star" man myself. Here in the UK, the dub got a dark and sinister Drum and Bass soundtrack to it. "Cyber City Oedo" dubbed has an awesome Rock soundtrack. I've seen the Jap originals and do prefer the dubs...not because of the language but the different music just fits so well!

Hey Guys i wanted to start a new project so followed the video here by arv got halfway through and cant open rocketlauncher as it says this software is not compatible?? is it because my laptop is 32 bit and the software is written for a 64 bit system only - this app will not run on your PC - anyway around this???, thanks

Even a 64bit OS should run 32bit apps. Might pay to re-install and also make sure you exempt the install location in your Anti-virus.

Could try running it in compatibility mode, Windows 7 should be fine.

Ok, I think this is officially the slowest project on the Hyperspin forum.... 

I'm taking care of the paint job, I will go first for a full black paint then I will put stickers. Here are the step I will be using :

1) Only for exposed side of MDF panel. I'm using a 50/50 mix of wood glue and water to close MDF pore. 2 coats and sanding at 180 between each coat.

2) For control panel and bezel, i'm using the same 50/50 mix of wood glue and water to harden the surface. 2 coats and sanding to 240 between each coat.

3) For the outer panel. I'm putting 2 coat of a primer then 180 sanding between each coat. Then black lacquer (i don't know how much coat i will need to put....)

3) For the inner panel. Spray painting black.

1 post a year!!! Yeah!!

Painting of the cabinet is almost finish!! 

Slow and steady wins the race ;)

Bit late now I know BUT here's a little painting tip. Put the paint tray inside a rubbish bag. When you're finished painting you can remove the paint tray which will still be clean and just throw away the rubbish bag :)

It's starting to look like an actual arcade cabinet...

Since i can't have a nice paint finish on the part where wrists will lay, i'm thinking about putting some t-molding on it.

Try my channel out, it may not be as professional as avars (I’m not getting paid by hyperspin) but I think mine are better ha
