  1. Please tell me you are going to leave the ACE marquee......lol Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  2. Honestly the one pic of him looking over his shoulder would be enough.....great theme though..... Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  3. My internal is a WD Red. No slow downs at all....just make sure your pc and video card are up to the task. At least 3.0 ghz and a modest video card I am running a gtx 650......butter.... Also buy a bigger drive than you think you need......I started with a 4tb, 2 years ago....I now have a full 6tb and may be upgrading again soon. Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  4. Buy a WD red or black internal.....buy a wd mybook for backup. (You will thank me) After your first crash or the day that hyperspin magically forgets and deletes files needed for operation......Or while downloading from a somewhat questionable website and catching a virus. Dont mean to sound like a jerk but...do it right or dont bother doing it at all....the small savings is not worth the loss of months/years of work. Just sayin....... Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  5. If you do it you will be on your own here.....make a backup of the drive. when something goes wrong....and it .....will you will have a back up. In the meantime after the kids go to bed....study Simply Austins vids on youtube so at least you understand what went wrong and where to look for it. Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  6. A new cp is the only thing I can get away with before the move. The full sized cab I have is in storage right now. My bartop is going in my office and the full sized will be for kids/company. The full sized cab will be a stripped down version of my bartop. Arcade only, no adult titles. The wife says she wants the bartop 2 player......so a complete redesign may be in the works.....I guess it might not be a bad thing. This way I can fix the design flaws I made with my first bartop Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  7. Btw...no. No room at all to add anything else. The only other option would be to design a box that sits beside the cab with the trackball in it ....plug in when needed. Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  8. Friends yes.....lol.....but when I explain what I have built they dont seem as exited as I am...most own an xbox 1 or ps4. You would think 1 system capable of playing anything up to the wii would be impressive....guess not everyone shares our vision. For as supportive as my wife has been, she likes mostly one player games. I dont think the player 2 joystick is even broken in yet. Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  9. My bartop has been finished for a few months. However there are quite a few systems that require a trackball or at least a mouse....I am not doing a whole rebuild (widen cab etc) but I had thought about doing away with the 2nd player controls and adding a trackball. Thoughts? Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  10. 6 drives.....all 2 tb + all wd redsSent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
  11. 6 to 7 tbs will give you more than you will ever play....unless you want everything.. Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk

  13. Lags a bit on some of the more current systems...despite the specs on the a10...amd seems to have issues multi tasking where video is concerned. Honestly a good video card is never a bad idea no matter what you are building.... It doesnt have to be anything crazy. I have a gtx650.
  14. I have the same exact APU....go with the FX chip....or get a decent video card.

    Mame Bartop

    Ebay? Just kidding....most people here are kind of do-it-yourself people. If you are looking to be pointed in the right direction with plans or help with setup...you are in the right place. But most are not selling anything.
  16. Better to have it happen now before you got married, bought a home, had kids etc. It sucks right now. But time does heal all wounds.....or was that Jack Daniels?...lol Keep a stiff upper lip brother...it does get better.
  17. (Bows)....If anyone wants to build one just ask....I will tell you where I screwed up. lol.
  18. Done..... Flint's Arcade Hyperspin cabinet: http://youtu.be/Vg161RSlX2w
  19. Make sure all bios are updated...direct x etc.
  20. My dog runs every time I power up my cab....lol
  21. Has anyone by chance found a way to lock in mugen controls? I can set them by title while in game however when I close out I lose them Honestly I could set them as I use them but it is the only emulator that I cant set the controls permenantly.
  22. I guess my only question would be....the computer I am running at this moment needed an additional video card to get it up to the task and the specs are almost double on the system as a whole....Im wondering which systems will be excluded from the final build....or are you just using mame and cart based systems? By the way....love the katamari music
