  1. More importantly you want a tv with game mode. That reduces the refresh rate to 60hz and puts focus on fast response time. So more then 60hz is overkill. But what what ever you get, make sure it has a game mode.
  2. The transistor is q1, to the left of the r30 resistor
  3. Amazing look to your cabinet. Good choice with the walnut.
  4. Here's the one that I tried. http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=44_563&item_id=057646 There's a bit about it in my build thread. Page 8 post #79 http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?30147-MORTAL-(pinball)-KOMBAT-a-build-thread/page8
  5. I didn't have very much luck with a USB-hdmi converter. I ended up buying another graphics card.
  6. That little amp should be fine. You would connect from the headphone jack on your motherboard to the green aux input of the amp. For 4" speakers any should do, car speakers are 4ohm, that will work. Might as well get 40watt ones to match the output of the amp.
  7. Why can't you cut a 1cm slot in the cabinet sides and leave the tv in its case? Should work, and look great
  8. Back left of cabinet. With USB volume control at front left
  9. I haven't looked into splitting up the sound, but enjoy my build using just a sub and 2skrs in the DMD panel. I like the idea of splitting up the ball noise and rom sounds, but haven't progressed that far yet. There's always room to add to my build later. This isn't the cheapest option, but instead of running a car audio amp to power my speakers, I used a home subwoofer amp. This way I'm not pulling more juice from the 12vdc power supply. This panel amp is a one shot deal. Just plug it in, hook up the speakers, set your levels for sub volume, sub frequency and satellite skr volume. There's lots of power to give you night club bass to fill the room, if ever wanted. https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-mca2250e-21-channel-class-d-plate-amplifier--300-771 The only draw back is controlling the volume level of windows. For this I got a USB device, although an inline volume control (like a headphone wire) would have worked fine. This vol knob looks awesome. It lights up all pretty inside the cabinet so that it's easy to find. I plan to mount it inside the the cabinet by the tilt switch, so it's all authentic looking. It turns the volume up and down, and it never falls out of sync with windows. It's great when the kids go to sleep. http://store.fusioncontrolcentre.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=62&product_id=61 A third thing to remember with volume is that each game rom will be set to a default level when you load the game for the first time. So you will probably want to turn up the games volume. Usually it's done by pressing the END key to "open the coindoor" then it's the (7+8) or (8+9) keys to vol up, vol dn. There's many choices with audio. The most inexpensive would be just getting pc speakers, I don't recommend this, although it could have good results if done well.
  10. I had a horrible time with a USB-VGA adapter, ended up not using it. This is what I had. http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=44_563&item_id=057646 I go into it a bit in my thread.

  11. I've ordered from Germany before, it wasn't that bad coming to Canada. http://www.bestofpinball.de/catalog/index.php
  12. It's a very happy day for me. There has been a good quality FS version of Dungeons & Dragons released on vpforums. Awesome. D&D was my last real pinball machine before I built my vp cab. In fact, I sold that machine to begin funding my virtual build. Very happy. My software woes are almost done. I haven't installed my ledwiz yet, but other than that I'm almost done. There's a problem with b2s back glasses loading on screen 3 instead of screen 2 (although it looks right on the settings) and then a problem with hyperpin freezing when I exit tables with b2s backglass'. I'm paying some bills, then going to work on the cabinet graphics soon. But the next step for me is to remove the playfield screen and wire up the lights for buttons (start,exit,coin,ect).
  13. My volume knob arrived yesterday. Just have to say it works great. Does what it's designed to to. Turns volume up, turns volume down, no set up required. Looks great too. Highly recomended.

  14. That's a great game. How badly is it broken? Might be worth fixing. If not, then at the least it will provide you with lots of useable parts. Like legs, coindoor, siderails, glass, and even cabinet if it's in good shape. The playfield and electronics could be sold to recoup costs of the tvs and pc
  15. I've ordered one of these too, it looks like a great product
