  1. Better late than never Jeg bor i Vejle. hedder 1up på spille-maskiner.dk og playright.dk
  2. Thanks for the replies! Had some fun with the cabinet this weekend and decided to shoot a video
  3. I finished it already but wanted to show it here too. It's a Weecade cabinet with Hyperspin frontend and I call it the Hyperwee It all started as an abandoned project. A guy I know who sell these as flat packs got one back from a customer who wanted a refund. The cabinet was already assembled, painted and had a monitor and speakers installed. It had minor scratch marks here and there but I got it for a very fair price. This is how it looked like when I got it: It came with a control panel plexiglass, the previous owner had cut himself, but NONE of the holes lined up?!? If you put in the buttons for player 1, nothing else fit. I decided to just add vinyl and call it a day. (lousy job...) Ordered the parts I needed and installed them: And this is how it looked before installing the PC: Got my hands on a old used PC for free, but no harddrive. I had an old 2,5" hdd laying around from a dead laptop, all I needed was som molex to sata cables and the installation began. I had a tough time installing windows 7. My keyboard would register keypresses so I could go to the bios, but when I had to press a key to boot from DVD nothing happened. I tried putting the hdd in another computer and installing windows 7 on it but it turned out to be a mess. Tried to install from USB but that didn't work. Finally after 4 hours of messing around I found that I had to enable additional USB options in the bios Now it worked and I installed windows 7.... only to find that there were no damn drivers to find ANYWHERE for the audio. So I formatted the hdd and installed good old Windows XP. I already had a working Hyperspin setup already setup with the games that I wanted so that was the easy part. I drew a marquee and a control panel strip that I got printed at a print shop. Real simple stuff inspired by the Taito Vewlix artwork. glued on the artwork onto the control panel and put the sticks and buttons back in: Installed the pc into the cabinet with a hot glue gun. Very easy. Setup the controls to work with the frontend and tested it out: Installed the back panel and a small power button in the top center: And here's the end result: Also made a video to show it running (danish language, good luck understanding that )
  4. Triforce is basically GameCube hardware, so it should run great.
  5. Man, that is great news. I was able to play Mario Kart GP and Mario Kart GP 2 in an arcade last year. Very fun. This also paves the way for F-Zero AX.
  6. looks like super sprint or champion sprint
  7. yea, thanks for the reply, much appreciated I just got the impression, from what I read, that there was more on the FTP than here in the download section? Oh well, looks like I will be doing some themes for SNES when I get the time
  8. Ive been searching all over for info on what exactly is on the FTP? I have a few questions. is this FTP and the emumovies FTP the same thing or do I need to donate to both? Is there a complete set of themes for MAME? How about themes for SNES, N64, DC and all the other consoles? Are there complete sets? if the videos are on this FTP, are there only HQ videos or are there also SQ videos for low end MAME cabs like mine? thanks
