Amazing build! You should be quite proud of this cab Chriz..

Could you please tell me what the measurements of the playfield's depth are? From the top of the monitor to the top of the cab's side panels. Also how do you think a regular LCD screen would go being lowered in a cab? Would you say it's best to leave it for LED panels only?

Thanks dude.

playfield depth is approximately 4" rear and 3/4" front. a regular LCD will not fit in a standard widebody cabinet, because they are too wide. only the samsung UE LED series (so far) has the perfect size to fit in the routed slots of a widebody cabinet.

@Chris ... I'm just getting started in my plight to pinball doom. You have a lot of great resources out there and I've been skimming and reading in my spare time.

I have a quick question on your latest post though ... the TV ... I cannot find online that model anywhere ... I'm not sure if they are the same, but do you know if the UN versions are the same? Samsung UN46D6000 ? I would hate to buy a tv ... decase it and find it doesn't fit ...

ALSO

I was reviewing the Layout dimmensions that you posted, and comparing them with the ones from MAMEMAN... and they are fairly different from each other. CAn I ask which plans you went with for this project? (the ones in that PDF that MAMEMAN had or the ones referenced in your FAQ)?

Thanks!

You might also check the Toshiba UX series which is also less wide than a standard 46". It'd be interesting if you could measure the diagonal on your set Chris as for a 16:9 46" TV, I think just the VIEWING area is too large to fit in a standard widebody cabinet. These must be a bit shy of a full 46" diagonal.

UN and UE should be the same (just different model names for different markets, like europe/usa). I think mameman uses the UN46D6xxx (newer D series). I use the UE46C6xxx (older C series). Both should fit.

I used mamemans widebody layout plans as a base. Are there differences to my plans?

thanks for the toshiba model, it looks good!. now we just need some volunteers for testing :D

what do you mean with the diagonal of the 46"? each 46" screen should have the same "viewing" diagonal.

As far as the plans, yes they are a bit off in each area (for the most part).

Your plans here:

http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showpost.php?p=76476&postcount=278

vs.

http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8239&highlight=mameman+plans

Example ...

Back Height - 60.5cm vs 595 mm (off by 10mm)

Backbox lenght - 18cm vs 150 mm (off by 30mm)

Length - 130.5cm vs 1310 mm (close ... but off by 5mm)

Width body - 62.5cm vs 594mm (off by 31 mm)

Pretty much all the dimensions (with few exceptions) are off a bit here and a bit there...

With respect to everyone else who has build really awesome cabs, I really dig your latest build and want to emulate it as close as I can ... but I wanted to clarify which dimensions you actually used, as the difference in width could potentially mean the difference between fitting the 46" tv or not. If you built it off of Mamemans plans, then no biggie, but if you build it off of yours I'd like to do the same.

Thanks!

@kronic24601, you need to pay attention to the measurements and how the cab is built. My 594mm width is the width of the bottom of the cab which fits inside of the 2 sides. So you need to add another 36mm to that to account for the sides so total width of the cab would be 630mm as I show on the plans if you look at the front panel. This pretty much matches chris's 62.5cm

Similar with your other observation.

Hmm ... I see. I'll have to do a closer comparison with the diagrams and the actual build ups. I'm guessing that complete accuracy must not be needed ... as I'm building this in a 3D Google sketch-up model and not everything lines up with the provided numbers ...

For example 3/4" plywood is actually only 11/16" or 17.4625 mm ... so technically adding the two sides of plywood to the width would add 34.925 mm to the total ...

Once the 3D model is done I'd be more than happy to share it with the community, I'd just want to make sure it all matches up ... I'll post some questions on your thread about your model

Hi Chris

Incredible build. What are your thoughts of changing the vp tables inclination and layback to maximize the depth effect?

thanks jp!

you have to check the inclination thread at vpforums. there are some awesome possibilities with inclination/layback (check out funhouse, attack from mars and totan)- it's the right way and it looks fantastic in the cabinets.

@Chris

Quick q ... Reading your forum I see that "Darkfall" has referenced using the LCD at 6degrees and the glass at 8, but I never caught what you did. Do you recall? Just checking the angles ...

UPDATE: ... hmm while reviewing your images it doesn't seem like Chris's playing field could possibly be @ 6 degrees .. or if it is, then the whole playing field must be down farther... which means the buttons would be as well, etc... now I'm really intrigued.

Hi Chris,

I have a small question for you regarding the mercury switches you're using in your Pin.

I have difficulties to find them in Germany, and I remember that you've mentioned a web site where to get them a long time ago, but couldn't find your message...

Any recommendation for me?

Thank you in advance.

And again, congrats for your amazing cab!

Thank you Chriz,

These switches will go in my WIP Taito Cab, Lokesen Style.

I was hesitating a lot between building a Pinball or an Arcade cab, but space is not unlimited in my flat, so I've decided to go for the Arcade for the time being.

But the compromise is to be able to play my favourite tables in the Cab, so I'll see how the switches will react in the cab. Not sure if this has been done before, let's see...

Also, you raised the bar so high that I'd prefer to practice my wood working skills on something else before building the Pin :)

Cheers!

RETURN TO YOUR HOME... A STORM IS COMING!!!

I always loved the fan on the whirlwind pin - now it's time to integrate this awesome feature in our virtual machines.

140mm fans from scythe (with 120mm mounting holes) are the perfect fit for a standard wpc95 speakerpanel. These black fans are nearly invisible and the "force feedback" of the wind gives a really nice experience!

2011-10-23%25252018h47_45.png

I am thinking of original whirlwind fan emulation and other cool custom effects like some wind when the rocket hits the ufo on Attack from Mars or when the old bookshelf on Addams Family rotates.... unlimited possibilites with our rom controlled ledwiz!

do you see the fans? :D:reddy: there is also no problem with the speaker behind fan... the sound gets simply through

It depends on the fan you use. There are different models with different speeds. I use the one with 1700rpm/92.4CFM/157 m³/h

it's no hurricane, but you can feel a cool breeze. just enough for a little surprise :D

      Hi guys! I recently finished my newest project and thought I would share it. If I can figure out how to upload photos here  I will do that too.
       

       
      As with most MAME projects, the majority of the time is in the software. We had a difficult time getting both guns to work in MAME, and after pulling our hair out for a couple of days we found a thread mentioning that dual light gun support is broken in the newest version. We got an older version and BOOM. 
      There is still some software work a head. I have not tried to tackle dual light guns in M2. I may not bother. 
       
      I used the Ultimarc AimTrak guns. They had the best reviews in my research. They function very well. While it is impossible to get them optimized perfectly for every game, after some long hours in the individual game calibrations, I have the happiest medium I think I will find. Some games work much better (and more accurately) than others. 
      For example the hunting games are dead center at the middle of the screen, but end up about 2" off at the sides. I don't know if there is anyway to correct for that. Also some games play better at different distances. Overall, I am very please with it. There are probably a handful of games that play terrific, and the rest have their issues. 
       
      We used 2 nanoLED USB controllers and LEDBlinky to automate.
       
      The holsters are 3D printed.
       
      The original speakers are being used along with a super cheap 5W amp and a 100W yamaha subwoofer. 
       
      We used a Windows 7 PC. I hate the load times, but sadly the aimtraks only work with windows.

      Playfield Cabinet

      The front and back corners are cut at 45 degrees, with miter splines for strength. I also used wood bracing on the inside corners under the leg brackets. The leg bracket holes were drilled at 25/64" which gave a little wiggle room to tighten fully. One problem I ran into: I cut the slots for the side rail plastic channels at 1/16" with a router and Harbor Freight slot cutter set, but after painting they weren't wide enough to hammer the rails down into, so I had to redo that. Slots for the TV were routed to 1/2" leaving only 1/4" thickness. I was worried about this in back with the weight of the backboxes so I made 2 bracing pieces to reinforce. The TV ended up being slim enough to install (fully cased) from the top, if I had realized that earlier I would not have routed the slots all the way back. Because there is a Samsung logo tab sticking out on the bottom of the TV, it sits slightly off-center to the right in the cabinet despite the routing, it is only about 1/8" off though. The remote works fine (needed for switching to 3D) as the sensor is on the bottom right of the TV so ends up near the buttons on the left side. 3D does work, check out the thread by toxie for more info. Because the Samsung UN46ES7100 is active shutter, you need two pairs of glasses turned sideways for it to work and not see black bars. This does make it hard to see the backglass and DMD, and the resolution is cut in half to achieve 3D. I don't turn on the 3D very often but it's nice to have, I did angle the TV downward anyway so it gives some illusion of depth though 2D.

      Upper Backbox (A bit taller and wider to fit screen)

      Also routed to 1/2" to recess the decased screen as much as possible. Routing on all sides presented a problem, how to get the TV in there? I ended up leaving the right side unglued so it is removable, the hole in the bottom is large enough to get a screwdriver in there and tighten with pocket screws. The top trim piece is not glued in as it would cover the screw holes holding things together.

      Lower Backbox (A bit taller and wider to fit screen)

      For now, I am using the HannsG instead of a real DMD. (I wanted to use custom color settings and not have the intense reflection on the playfield glass) It is routed about 1/2" and wedged in there tightly. I had to make the box taller, which I justified by having the combined height of the backboxes be the same as a Williams widebody. Theare are 2 pieces of plexiglass with a paper bezel inbetween.

      Stencils

      Ideally a spray gun is the way to go with stencils, but I like the control of using a foam roller, although it requires a lot of touch up. 2 coats of latex Kilz2 primer, and then latex Glidden Satin Interior, 3 coats blue (Rhapsody), 5 coats yellow (Sunny Side Up), 5 coats pink (Passion Flower) The black was done with 2 coats Zinnser BIN primer (spray can) and 2-3 coats Rustoleum Satin Black (spray can). One thing I re-learned about spray paint, if you're going to do more than one coat, don't space them out too long, I did a second coat of black the next day and it puckered, had to redo it. Another coat should be applied within an hour.


      Bally Coin door/Cash box

      I took the coin door completely apart and used a wet sanding sponge (up and down for uniform grain) to buff out scratches, it worked great, used the same on the trim. For the coin insert panel/coin mechs and chutes I used steel wool. I wired the lights in series to the PC, using an extra molex to SATA adaptor to splice the wires. #161 bulbs are the correct voltage. I put the shooter rod/knob in the drill and spun it in steel wool, shined it all up, did the same for the coin return button. You can use steel wool on the cash box, but it takes off the zinc coating, leaving it clean and shiny but different than the original.

      Sound

      The integrated sound on this motherboard is from Realtek, nothing special but you can route seperate audio streams to front and back outputs, which is now a feature in visual Pinball. (Doesn't work in Future Pinball, sound only comes from the primary backbox speakers) I have the Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers on the back outputs, and the Logitech S220 2.1 speakers on the front headphone jack. So backbox rom sound is separated from cabinet mechanical sounds. I am missing authentic force feedback, but I can control the volume of the whole cabinet. I copied the small bottom vent holes in the original cabinet, and the speakers are placed nearby. In the lower backbox, the speakers are facing toward the bottom hole that overhangs the playfield. I like that the speakers aren't right in my face, and without a speaker panel all 3 screens are blank when turned off.

      Logitech Z506
      Logitech S220


      PC

      The playfield cabinet is not as tall as a Williams widebody, so I could not fit a shelf for the PC above where the legs attach. Because of this I just kept the PC in its case, which could technically be pulled out the back if needed, a tight sqeeze though.

      Buttons

      Coin return button=cabinet on
      The PC momentary switch is in the first coin mech, I just cut off the square top of the switch so it works. Not all coin mechs fit this method, I had to use a metal one from a Ms. Pac-Man. The PC is plugged into the Control Outlet on the Smart Strip and automatically switches everything else on.

      R Flipper Back=secondary R flipper/magna save (shifted=Exit)
      I didn't put in any analog nudging, maybe if I improve at pinball I will, because the above shift settings are not very functional.

      Ventilation

      I replicated the original backbox vents, which I wouldn't recommend as most projects have large strong fans. I routed out a long air intake under the cab for the PC, and there's also the speaker hole, which was done with a router using a makeshift jig. I ran a 92mm case fan up into the bottom hole of the lower backbox, and another for the upper backbox, so it has upward airflow. I didn't notice excessive heat in the lower cabinet, the upper backbox (NEC LCD3000) gets hotter though. I covered the routed area in the upper backbox with thermal aluminum tape. I was still a bit concerned about airflow so in the end left the back slightly unhinged and have a small desk fan route air out the back.
