  1. Nice, you could play most modern games on that rig nevermind emulation! I've got a couple of gtx 460 hawk editions gathering dust which I'm hoping could be put to use for something like this. Keep updating with pics as the build moves on
  2. Looks good. What spec pc you running? I'm looking to make a similar size one after my bartop. The vertical mame idea is a good one.
  3. Hey blacketj Thanks for the quick response, looking again at the circuit diagram, it make sense to use 2 diagonal pins like you said to complete the circuit. I'll try with a piece of wire tomorrow like you suggested. I presume this approach should work with any monitor with a similar switch? I have another monitor of the same model to decase and then a smaller Dell. The load sensing power strip is also a good idea, I should be able to find one of them in the UK.

  5. Hey guys Just decased a hu196d monitor I got off eBay to measure it up for my bartop. The PCB is a little more complex than I had anticipated and I am not sure how to wire up the power switch to an arcade button. The first pic shows the push to make buttons - the middle one that sits higher than the others with the led next to it is the power switch. When I flip it round, the switch has 4 pins solders to the PCB, when I was only expecting 2. The 2 pins closer together are for the led. My initial guess is that a run wires from each of the pins to my arcade micro switch, connecting a matching pair from each side of the push to make switch to a single pin on the arcade micro switch. It is but a guess though, and I don't want to balls this up and have the monitor blow up on first play through! My end game would be to have a single arcade switch on the back than when pressed fires up both the PC and the monitor, and my assumption is that I can simply connect wires from the monitor and the PC to the arcade micro switch without needing anything extra - again, this is an assumption, so please correct me if I am wrong. Any help and wisdom would be greatly appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  6. Hi Looks awesome - I am considering doing something similar as I have a few spare pcs and square flat screen monitors. What are the dimensions of the control panel? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk - now Free
  7. Jumpstile Have you had chance yet to set up the recoil kit? Would be very interested on hearing your verdict
  8. The shells look to be near enough identical to ps1 gcon-45s - would it be within the realms of possibility to pick one of these up off eBay and gut the trigger mech? Hopefully, ultimarc will update their product range and sell a gun that includes the recoil built in.
  9. Wouldn't it be possible to buy the new shells, the recoil kit and aimtrak OEM electronics kit for $87 dollars in total? I don't know much about these things, so I could be wrong. Light guns is one of the main reasons I am looking to start building arcade cabinets.
  10. Hey, no worries - this is the sort of pedal I was talking about: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CFS-01-Foot-Switch-Momentary-Power-Pedal-FootSwitch-1NO-1NC-10A-w-900mm-Cord-/290619799233?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item43aa4a36c1#ht_4360wt_1111 I know time crisis has an industrial metal kick plate - it could be possible to get a small sheet from a DIY store and mod one of these foot switches.
  11. Fair point, and the large flat base will spread the pressure so any carpet squash would bounce back up pretty quick. Do you find the widescreen monitor to work well? I've hooked my pc up to my plasma and wasn't decided on keeping 4:3 aspect where required or stretching to fill the screen.
  12. Really like this cabinet. One question, have you got it on castors so you can move it, or is it fixed? Slayer are awesome \m/
  13. I had considered using an existing gaming pedal and fixing this to the gun via the jack method. For some reason, I am drawn to buying a couple of industrial pedals off eBay (they are like £4 from Hong Kong), making sure they are momentary switches and then wiring them in as a button through the iPad and mapping this to right control in the emulator. I also have massive feet so an existing gaming pedal may be a bit small, lol
  14. Does anyone know if Ultimarc will be selling guns that have the recoil built in to them? I am thinking of ordering one soon once I have worked out how to make a reload pedal
