Built a single player cab

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.

Thanks guys, sorry I havent been too active on the forum, life is busy at the moment.

To close the panel I put one of these on each side. Not that exact one, but you can pick them up at Home Depot in the hinge isle for $1 each, works very well.

i see my Goldenaxe theme inthere, you need to go into my ftp folder and grab all the themes there and do an overwrite. Hyperspin doesnt like the strobe effect used in that theme so it won't show the characters. the theme in my folder is updated

Thanks for the info, I had never noticed. I will get on that soon as I get back into the states. Work has me in Ireland for the next 2 weeks..

The marquee is plenty bright but right now it is printed on thick card stock. Once I get it printed on some proper paper it will light a bit better.

      Bonjour a tous et toutes , voila je suis nouveau dans ce monde qu'est hyperspin, j'ai 47 ans je baigne dans le JV depuis mes 6 ans ,j'ai reçus ma bartop il y a quelques jours et je voulais modifier les tailles d'images (elles sont bombé pour faire croire que l'on joue sur un CRT avec scanline etc... ) 
       
      J'ai trouvé (via TAB) le menu de reglage des images (video slider) , je regle l'ensemble a ma convenance mais lorsque je sort du jeu et que j'y retourne je me rend compte que rien n'est sauvegardé !! 
       
       
       
       
      Comment faire ?!?!?
