Pinball Dreams (32" 19" )

Recommended Posts

Looking good so far..

Nothing wrong with budget builds ( from the man whose pinball project costs more than most people spend on a car :P ) sometimes they are more of a challenge getting the parts you have to work, and probably far more rewarding.

The black screen issue might be down to the video card, a gtx 610 is not the ideal card for a pinball ( vastly underpowered), also the 2 gb ram probably is not helping

I think it's to do with screen resizing when it switches from the program it goes back to black screen then it's fine I'm crossing my fingers for RAM solving the problem

Must be my lucky day I found this "broken tv" at a job I was on

And after changing the power supply fuse it worked ?

And I fitted the new screen I had to decase it but I'm really happy it's like it was made for the back box

6d1eda1875ded6e93e3d8ad4e4caa0ce.jpg

I had to adjust the screen using the scroll lock is their a option or a config I can copy to all table?

And the dreaded screen flicker is still around when the game starts after the ball drains any thoughts ?

Well flicker problems still around but except the plexi glass and artwork I'm done with the back glass

Removed a metal part of the monitor and cut a T-molding for these spare pieces I had.

And added a few more coats of paint

Woooo I figured the screen the flicker the monitor was not set at the right resolution so it kept having to change !

Once I set it to the exact size

It made the game speed up and looks even better than before

Lol.. I just find vp is a more realistic simulation..

There are a couple of stunning fp tables, but I just stick to vp now.

If you can pickup an ssd you will find it runs far better.

You can squeeze vp, fp and hyperpin onto a 60gb disk (my install of the three runs to under 20gb) just don't go to mad on the number of tables you run.

Monkeychunkuk,

I am planning on building a pin cabinet with the same size screen as your play field screen. I really like how your cabinet has come out so far and was just wondering if you could post the dimensions for your cabinet? I saw that you had a few dimensions in your first post, but I know that you cut it down a bit after that. The dimensions I am most unsure about are the front dimension and the back dimension (front as in height of the cabinet itself at the front of the play field portion and the height at the back of the play field portion). Also, the back box height.

Thanks in advance!

So I normally I use a ipac 2 for the keyboard encoder but with them still at £32 I was looking for a alternative,I've had hit a misses with the Xbox controller

So I thought I'd bust open this

Ps/2 pin keyboard,

I know this isn't great for full arcades because of ghost key presses and limited to 6 keys at once,but for the pinball I'm only using 2 keys at once

So I ripped the keyboard apart

And I ripped this off

And did a shitty job soldering onto the connection

8e9dacb6a1f75138c74c74a69d9d97b9.jpg

Very tricky as the connection where lead covered so I scratched it all off to get something to solder to

And then I coverd the sins with my glue gun ; )

c079b30ad4abe53730ebbed0db175ae5.jpg

And amazingly it still works

All I have to do is figure out the wire cross connections to get the keys I want

It's really slow work

BUT dies it look likes its running smoother?

has this got flicker/ball jumping or am i just seeing things?

the different hdd wont affect the game once the table has loaded. it will only affect the loading times of the tables and front end videos etc..

Just wondering if you were able to get some measurements of your build? The rough measurements are ok too. Hate to bother you again, but wanted to get started this weekend.

Thanks

Here you go sorry it's a bit crap and in inches but google will convert for you

So a few things to take in count measure how wide your play field screen is after decase mine is slightly wider because it would not trim done any further,and I've got a job ahead if me to hide it

The part of the machine that sits under the back box I would adjust to match the actual size so in my case 8 inches

Notice my back box is equal all the way up

Most increase as they get to the top like wedge shape maybe consider that for your build ?

The room between the bottom of the play field screen is very tight on my machine " it has a inch from the top of the graphics card and buttom of tv that's not great so maybe add a few inches to yours?

Mine is based on original plans my advice would be layout all your components and change to suit your setup

Hmmm maybe decision time I was just comparing FPS

with my gaming PC and the pinball PC

And it's miles apart, is it time to go back to my original idea?

The games take a while to loads on the pinball config

And I'm noticing a slight effect on game it's a lot smoother on the arcade but nothing "game breaking
