  1. the board width was 28in, the cabinet width was 29.5in (28in + 3/4in + 3/4in for the sides). Hope that helps.
  2. Yes. I made mine pretty close to the dimensions in the first post and it's great for stability. You could mock up a unit to test making it wider. Only thing for me is that it slips forward on my carpet so I need to figure out a way to make the underside sticky and not damage the carpet. When mine is under the couch, its tight enough to not slip... I guess it depends on your couch height, but I would try to wedge it under there with a towel, blanket, carpet or something like that... Ours is tight enough to stay put, but loose enough to push forward and get out without busting up your knees.
  3. We don't drive manual much so its mostly there to control the game. I originally wanted to mount it on the side somehow, but never got around to it... Would love to see ideas. And glad I inspired others, however originally I took this idea from someone else
  4. I finally took the time to finish this project and it turned out great. It took so long, the walls and flooring are completely different from the original pics.
  5. Here are the pics so far of the build log
  6. Version 2 is on the way. Main Changes (so far) are 27" Playfield that fits perfecting from top to bottom and 19" Backglass Screen. Also mostly glued together and Adjustable legs to keep it to scale or raise it up to a comfortable playing height. Rick
  7. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to see it to finish. It sat at my workplace and someone came in and made an offer on it (As-Is) and I took it.
  8. Around $1600 easily after all is said and done, if you are buying everything new, plus labor. However, I had some of the parts available, so out of pocket, I was just under $1000. I documented some early costs in the second post.
  9. It's in the settings.... Preferences, Video / Rendering Options, Playfield -> Set FullScreen, Arcade Mode, Wide Screen and Rotation. If you want to save time, look into BAM, this will save you tons of time as it gets the tables close and you can adjust and save them while you have them running.
  10. Seems like a lot more work fixing up an existing cabinet vs. building one from scratch. Here are the latest pics with the final piece cut and placed.
  11. If anyone would like the 19" touchscreen CRT monitor that was in this machine for FREE, its yours. It is working, and NO I will not ship it. It comes with the touchscreen module, bezel, and original game hard drive. Either message me here or just stop by Aurora Computer Center: 425 Third St., Aurora, IN 47001 (40 minutes outside Cincinnati). I will remove this message once it has been picked up.
  12. Latest Pics: Will update once the PC is installed / Wired Up / and Marquee-Speaker area completed.
  13. Finally made some progress on the pac-man conversion. I made some changes to the original design: Marquee will be much smaller height-wise, and the control panel and screen are now on a single piece of MDF; Lots of work on one piece of wood. Will update with pics as I start the assembly (Monday or before). I am going to assemble it completely, then disassemble it to prime, paint and decal. Then reassemble the final product, add the lexan over the screen/control area, and add the chrome t-molding last.
