  1. Thank you ! I have a bartop Vewlix design in the works. I also have built some fullsize cabs and joysticks. Check out my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/multigamesystem
  2. Need to organize all the photos I took into some sort of build gallery. My faccebook https://www.facebook.com/multigamesystem and instagram https://instagram.com/robertdunnart/ have lots of progress shots.
  3. Thank you and it took careful planning and lots of shaping. I have been scratch building stuff all my life everything from model sail boats to cosplay armor. So many of the tricks I learned over the years got put to the test on these two builds. Also lots of filler and primer
  4. Thanks buddy as do I. I'm thinking about working on a bartop style Vewlix and possibly other candy cabs.
  5. Its been awhile since I posted up on here but I have been busy building mini versions of Japanese arcade machines. Particularly the Sega Astro City and MVS-U4. I designed everything on the computer paying close attention to scale and proportions. The cabs are mainly mdf with a bit of apoxie sculpt and shaping. Inside both units is a micro atx system. The screens are 4:3 15" HP LCDs. 1024x768 resolution. The Astro has a scanline generator in it. Note I'm still finishing up the marquee for the Astro. Check out my Facebook page for more projects and info. https://www.facebook.com/multigamesystem **UPDATED SHOT of completed units** 8/25/2015
  6. Yeah I was diggin the white and was thinking of doing a black frame around the screen area. An inlay card setup would look cool under the screen.
  7. Just sanding and filling and I used a spray gun to spray the primer. The idea was to make it not look like wood.
  8. Well I have been reluctant to share my work on here since I find forums to be hyper critical but I figure its about time I show this thing off. I started this project last Feb. and am nearing completion. I wanted to build something unique but still very Japanese and also practical. It comes apart into two pieces at the base of the screen. I designed the thing in Adobe Illustrator working to scale. I'm still debating on what color to paint it. I really like the way it looks with white primer but a semi gloss epoxy paint coating would be nice as well. Let me know what you guys think. The latest thing I worked out was the backlit custom marquee at the top. Making the sticker mask and painting that was way more work than I wanted it to be.
  9. Well when I say events I mean raves. So its not exactly like a con or something. I know people are setting up working coin doors on here. I am aware that its illegal but so is owning all these roms right? I guess I am on my own with this one. Thanks anyway. Well here is a gallery of my progess thus far if anyone is interested. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151660541429017.1073741826.552819016&type=3
  10. It seems you guys generally frown upon using hyperspin for any kind of profit. I spent lots of time and money building this cab and what like to make it worth it for me to bring it out to events. Im not expecting to make bank but at least some money for gas and my time. I was wondering if it was possible to control the loading of games in hypserpin with a coin door. I know arcade games work with credits but how would I control console games and pc games? Here is a progress shot from a few days ago. The cab is semi taken apart here.
