  1. Love this theme! Looks very nice! And just a tip in case u plan to do more projects: if u search for images on google u can filter them on the resolution u prefer ;-D grtz
  2. I think its just a mather of common use of those microswitches, arcade buttons is just one of many uses. In the industry, NC contacts are often used in circuits that need a wire-break safety (example: Emergency stops). If a wire breaks, circuit will act like the contact is open "logic 0" (and not the normal NC "logic 1" status)
  3. i don't have a G-button :-P And i didnt take it as critizism fellow-fuzzy i was just clarifying why i did have it in case it was any use to u in deciding what u want.
  4. I also have 6 buttons per player. The reason i have an Enter button is that (when i was making the plans u are making now) i didnt want to risk having to change the ipac settings to much since i was totally inexperienced noob. But at the same time I really wanted an Enter button for some PC games since they usually use them for menu's. Also i had room enough on my CP to add some buttons more or less.
  5. I have an Escape,Select,Enter & Pauze button. However i almost only use the "Select" button for Mame (brings up menu in Mame that really comes in handy for changing video settings or controls fast in-game). For hyperspin i don't use it and for most console emulators its not really useful in my humble opinion. For example i changed my emulator controls for "NES: Punch-out" since you use "Start" to make an uppercut. So it was more convenient to link it to an action button of P1. For Zelda you need select a lot for example so i have both select and start set as action buttons. So my personal opinion is that in most cases you're better of with a couple extra action buttons then with specific menu buttons who are out of handreach. Just sharing my thoughts but i am quite a noob tbh :-D
  6. Thanks for the comments!! I am quite content about it myself , considering it's my first try. Off course if i would make it again i would do lots of things different, not in the least to make it smaller lol. Since i didnt put in an arcade monitor i didnt really need it to be so big, but i liked the layered design for more depth so i just went for it. As for the Alien on one side and the Predator on the other, i am glad u notest lol. Since i always related the color green with aliens i made all lighted buttons on that side and I thought that red would be nice for the predator side.
  7. U seem to be the master electronics!!!! :-O Thnx for the help, im very interested in getting recoil for my guns to, i'll look into it thanks to you :-P
  8. Greetings, I am FuZZy from Belgium and i am building a cabinet with Alien vs Predator theme. Here's my history: In heart i have always been a gamer, when i was a teenager i entered the world of console gaming. From Santa i got a Nintendo Entertainment System which was pretty popular back then. Switching games with friends was common, unfortunately a lot of them are lost or stupidly sold now lol :-) Off course back in those days arcade cabinets were on every carnival, so i played those a lot to. Over the years i also had a SNES, then switched to computer gaming for many years, and switching back to consoles with PS2, PS3 and who knows what the future will bring. I have always been a fan of what i call 'simple' games. These days gaming is more about (obviously missed) deadlines and the graphical aspect and this sometimes goes at the cost of plain good gameplay, which is the most important thing about a game after all. So it is not a wonder i have grown adept of oldschool games. Having the software for many years i never thought of the possibilities with it. It was when i was curiously searching the internet for a Killer Instinct Arcade cabinet that i came across these hyperspin cabinets. So after many years i decided to build one myself. Off course going from the idea to do it, to actually having a finished cabinet is not a small walk in the park. Thanks to the people of this forum for the help i found here so far and will hopefully continue to find in the future. Now that its nearly finished i can say building a cabinet is not too hard and anyone can do it, but it is also not to be underestimated. As i was playing with visual ideas, the theme Alien vs Predator was soon decided since i had always been a fan of the Aliens and Predator movies. I soon made a 3D build using Sketchup and played with graphics untill i was satisfied with how i looked. Off course i still had no idea yet how to actually rebuild it in real life :-D Then i began building it but let me just state that althought loving oldschool gaming, i am not the one to strive for authenticity in this cabinet. For example: i'm not using real money slots or an arcade monitor, but instead, lighted money slot look-a-like buttons and a PC monitor. Simply for practical reasons. Below i will post pictures of building and how it is now (not finished yet but playable). The CP still has to be shaped and colored. Bezel still to be made. Let me know what u think :-) Grtz From Belgium, FuZZy
  9. Cool grahics!!! And what a coinsidance i am just making my first cabinet and its Alien vs Predator themed
