  1. Finally got around to finishing everything up (Minus some programming still to be done)
  2. I finally got around to drilling out all the holes. Turns out like others said bondo does NOT work on a metal control panel. If bondo was in the middle of the hole that I was drilling it tore away like wet cardboard. Luckily the plexi is stong enough to hold everything in place. The art will cover all the holes, and maybe I will use some bondo to fill those now that drilling is done. Word of advice to anyone who may use an old cabinet for a hyperspin cabinet. Stay as far away from metal control panels as possible. I would have saved myself so much trouble if it were made of wood!
  3. I use an encoder like that one with my cabinet. (The blue and white wires, not the LED style). Your setup looks the same as mine, the blue as the ground wire.
  4. Made some rough mock ups for some artwork ideas. I have not fully decided on a name yet, but I do like retrocade. The dark gray in the design will probably be black, but for contrast reasons I left it dark gray. #1 - The bezel is a sort of mimic of the original NES game boxes #2 - Very rough bezel design. Thought it might be cool to have "cords" running from the CP up to the NES marquee #3 -Combo of #1 and #2 I am playing with the idea of throwing some character on the front edge of the control panel, but I may like the solid light gray better And a coin reject insert I made up. Maybe this or a coin from Super Mario? Let me know which # you think looks the best! I may not even do a bezel since I have tinted glass and don't really need one, not sure it's worth the $41 gameongrafix charges.
  5. I am sure the ipac is much better, but I actually have not had any issues. Maybe it is more work setting these up, but so far with joy2key profiles I have not ran into any problems, but then again I still have not fully set every system up yet because I wanted to wait until I had all the buttons on there.
  6. I had some fun Arcade times with friends, and game nights with the High School youth group, but I have decided that the four buttons is not going to cut it anymore. I decided to get back to work on the cabinet. First step was to get that control panel overlay off! Crappy Neo Geo conversion overlay Turns out this was at one time a Vendetta, which explains the even more holes under there! Pretty cool artwork This was a very tough task to get this off of here. But this method worked really well! (Would not recommend on a wooden control panel! haha) I am still in the process of scraping off the goo left behind from this! I bought some bondo and am going to try and fill in some holes, and then drill some new ones. I hope it all works out! I also had some new plexi cut at Home Depot, so that should also help strengthen things a little bit!
  7. It has been a long time since I updated this! Life has been real busy between the Navy, having another baby, and serving in the High school youth group at my Church with my wife. I decided to buy a $2 fence post from Home Depot and cut it down to mount the monitor I had a real hard time trying to figure out power. I ended up wiring a regular power strip to the original power switch on the cabinet. I just popped out the switch on the power strip, and had a friend solder some wires to the cabinets power switch. My PC is mounted in the cabinet, and I have a push button wired to the pins that start the computer, However the settings for the PC power make it so that once I apply power via the power strip it automatically starts! So as long as that keeps working I will not need a second button to start up the machine! I got curious one day when I saw white peaking out behind the black paint on the side. I took a little nail polish remover to it and discovered this was a Space Duel! It makes me sad to see that someone painted right over the beautiful side art. I had played with the idea of recovering the art and going with a theme to match it, but I think I have decided against that now. I am in the process of designing some artwork for the cabinet.
