Barcade Hyperspin Build (SO FAR)!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have spent the last year building this Barcade. I have browsed this thread for a while now looking for inspiration and have yet to post anything on my project. So here it is! (so far...)

The idea behind this build was to have a fully functional bar with a retractable arcade screen using a linear track actuator. I wanted to tie-in all my AV into the bar and of course add some hidden doors. I also wanted this thing to be mobile, so I added casters. I will update you guys later with more pictures, however here are some teasers for now. I am not done by any means and this is still a work in progress. If you have any suggestions, questions or comments please let me know. Thanks for looking!

MSI Litho printed me design on the glass for me. Cost ~$40.00. (Thanks Mike!) http://www.msilitho.com/

Here a Video / Quick tour

If you are coming through Northern Cali.. for sure. However... You might be tricked into setting up an emulator. :beer:

      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.

      Taken this morning after fitting the footrail. pretty much finished now  hope you like!

      Hola como estan?
      estoy teniendo un problema con menu, baje un pack de n64 y cuando lo instalo el dibujo de anterior/siguiente juego no aparece abajo en el medio sino que esta en todo el centro de la pantalla y no se como acomodarlo (Adjunto imagen del menu al que me refiero)
      El otro problema que tengo es que cuando instalo los juegos del pack famicon de 550 juegos solo me reconoce 79, es la primera vez que me pasa, rehago la database y solo reconoce 79.
      Muchas gracias por su ayuda

      I use rocketlauncher to start mame64 games in hyperspin but the first game on a fresh windows startup takes 20 seconds to start.  After closing this game the next game will open almost immediately. I know others have asked this question but I can’t find a solution. I have no anti-virus running, no windows defender, no rocketlauncher fades or bezels. I updated the mame64 version to the 209 no nag from 197 no nag with no change. Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!
