Sorry for the recent downtime. Still much to do but we have the site updated, secure and back online. Expect more changes.
Hey everyone. I am an old lurker/new member here and I wanted to ask if anyone has building plans/template for an arcade like Nu-Gen. I want to build one because it looks so nice but I cannot find plans. I would be forever grateful if you could share with me.
Thank you in advance :)
I bought it in 2015 but adding constantly mods and software.
Finally I added extra leds, light guns and a custom integration with HyperSpin described here : https://github.com/cboudereau/ArcadeCab
I also added more and more emulators, updated the hardware and used a Logitech Z5500 digital.
Hi all. very new to this, but a bit handy when it comes to building stuff.
A good friend of mine showed me his bartop machin that he was in the process of buillding and after looking at some of the games etc (running on pi) i was wowed. decided to have a go myself as I was off work over xmas.....so it begins...
Had a look around the web for the kind of machine I wanted to build but nithing really caught my eye so went with a standard kind of cabinet - no sizes or plans, just a little sketch on the back of a used envelope and away we go - only consideration I had to make was the screen size. Popped to my local currys/pc world - had a look, wanted to have 4k - but whch size? once its bought you cant go any bigger so I figured its all or nothing so picked up a 43" 4k LG smart tv.
Everything was build around it, so I only had to make sure the inside dimension of the cabinet was 40" had it all built and working in about 3 days - took another 5 days or so adding bits here and there...speakers and subwoofer, foot rail, hidden draw for keyboard /mouse etc.
all worked out great - still learning config of hyperspin but will get there in the end
Cant wait to build the MK2 now....
video below - compiled from pictures i took while maing the cabinet - all put together by apple iphone lol.
