  2. Awesome setup. I have a buddy who hacked his original xbox and used a video input card into his PC and then uses network commands to launch and close games as well as a crazy control setup that allows him to switch his cabinet controls over the the xbox. He spent months figuring it out and it is one of the coolest setups I have ever seen. When i watched your video I thought wow this guy has figured out how to do that with more modern consoles. Only to find out it was all PC games the whole time. TOTALLY MY STYLE waaay less work lol. That is so awesome man nice setup!!
  3. This is awesome thank you very much for the links and the work you put into it
  4. I just have the weight on the bottom and I replaced the topper the thing spins really well. I don't think you need both but I really wanted a different topper than what it came with. Never payed attention to the joystick animations how do I go about changing those? Thanks 3 kids keeps this thing used constantly
  5. Regarding the black buttons next to the temperature control one turns on the LEDs that light up the wiring when the top is up. The other one is a spare for future I was going to do some undecab LEDs later. The star wars game is Battlefront I have the controls for flight mapped to the arcade so you can fly an xwing on the projector. Thanks for all the positive feedback guys!
  6. Thanks for the positive feedback guys. I added some wiring pics since I always appreciate looking at what everyone else does to manage all the chaos underneath the buttons.
  7. Pedestal Super Arcade 100” screen LED Buttons I moved houses and sold my old arcade cabinet. This time I decided to go with a pedestal build. I have built a hyperpin cab and helped friends with some smaller 2 player builds but I wanted to go all out on this so I started with a new design I worked on digitally and then worked from there. This post will show the progression of the design and build: Specs: Computer: Gigabyte mobo Intel I3 16gigs of ram 500 gig ssd paired with 2 Terabyte hdd EVGA GTX 580 card from old PC Running Win 7 AC Infinity cabinet fan and temperature control system with Tstat LED Buttons and Joysticks all custom animated Optoma HD27 Projector 100" Screen Can link with smaller 2 Player arcade controller and 2 Xbox 360 controllers for 8 Player Bomberman Other Details: Step 1: Planning and software Software basically ported everything I had from my old setup on an external HDD Upgraded with adding some new systems and getting rocket launcher Rocket launcher is awesome when I first started with hyperspin with the exception of my Mame artwork I had to manually re-label my entire art video and rom library which took part of my soul now everything is so much easier so big shout out to all these guys Step 2: Construction I used a basically table saw router jig saw circular saw and drill will get you where you need to go I highly recommend lots of large wood clamps and pick up a forstner bit and a step bit For the trackball I needed a hole saw For the sides I clamped the 2 boards together and used a jigsaw to cut them both at the same tim to insure symmetry the rest of the pieces with were square cuts for the base For the CP I cut the plexi and the wood together slowly with a plexi specific bit using the jigsaw Anything I didn’t know I would do a test run cutting plexi, routing for the tmolding drilling buttons etc I did it a few times on a test piece before I worked on the main project Step 3: Finish work graphics and Paint Not much to say take everything apart and spray paint it Put it all back together and apply the vinyl graphics For the vinyl use blue tape to secure it peal up one side and cut the backing off then stick that piece of the vinyl down pull of the blue tape and fold the entire piece back with the exception of the Step 4: Wiring dear god so much wiring Step 5: Finished Playing and debugging What went right: Extremely happy with the overall look and graphics Very happy with the plexiglass since this is my first time really working with plexi Also first time using t molding trim There are no screws that go from the outside of the body in everything is internal (yes I could have used bondo etc) I wanted a perfect smooth surface for the graphics The AC Finity temp sensor and fan control system is awesome I highly recommend that for any cabinet it keeps things nice and cool Things I would have done differently: Include a sub inside the the cab (still might do that down the road) the system uses external in room speakers off of a surround sound receiver so no need but standalone it has no sound The plexiglass has a 16” reveal above the tmolding if sitting in front of the panel and with your hand at just the right angle that can get a little irritating Vinyl that I used to print the graphics was a little thin and not as easy to work with Might have planned to go with smaller wheel casters Want to add an analog flight stick Links to Misc Products I used: Projector: Optoma HD26 Projector

  8. That is awesome! I have always done big projects I wants to start working on something small like this. Really cool man!
  9. love love the artwork that is exactly what I want to do to mine
  10. DONT BUY THESE....yet anyways. Alert I just purchased 2 of these bad boys through a reputable EBAY seller. They came in and worked really really well for 1 day. On day 1 the trigger broke inside one of the guns. I opened up the gun to see what was going on and found that the piece of the trigger that presses the button inside the gun had broken and was no longer able to push the button that actuates the trigger press in MAME. On day 2 the same thing happened to gun number 2. I contacted the seller and the Manufacturer has taken responsibility for the defect and supposedly are shipping me 2 new guns with the defect permanently fixed..... we shall see. 3 week wait to find out. For the brief time that they worked they were awesome wireless with laser sight, the recoil is pretty cool, they are really accurate once you calibrate them, and eliminate other IR sources, aside from some minor driver issues, I had not gotten both guns to work at the same time in MAME but had not worked on that problem for long. Really bummed out. Don't buy these until you hear that the issue is fixed. I am not the only one with this issue as well. http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=114592.40
  11. Lord Hiryu,

    I understand that you created/ provided art for ext2K I am searching desperately for artwork for the pinball cab I am building. It would be awesome to just get what he is rolling on his cab Pinball Fantasies. If you can help me out that would be awesome! Let me know thanks in advance.
