  2. As stated earlier, it was for showcasing its flexability, its not going to be in the final product. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  3. There is a little activity going on in the linux (and windows, and, osx) world. Heres a couple early developmental videos being worked on by yours truely. Im calling it puddle-fe. All of this is funning on a old 1.6GHz samsung Netbook (single core). All videos are to only show proof of concept. It is not showcasing the final product. It is just showing a few things that the fe is capable of.

  5. What kind of things are on your BOM? What kind of processor are you using? Will the firmware be open source to make any additions or enhancements to the existing firmware? (I am not asking from a reselling standpoint or anything, I am an embedded software engineer at my "real job" ) This looks sweet! It really has the potential to be a competitor in the hobby MAME market. It is possibly even kickstarter worthy. Sent from my Galaxy S4 using Tapatalk HD
  6. It's a little outside your price range (I think it equates to 60 pounds) ; it's a great entry level router. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-R163K-Fixed-Base-Router-R163K/203325690#.UkbTA2go7GU This was the first router I bought and I still love it! The router has now become my most frequently used tool. It can be used for so many applications.... I cannot imagine living without it! Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  7. Those look great. Nice! Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  8. I love your respect for console gaming. Looks great! Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  9. If mounted horizontally you will always notice the borders to a little extent. Try taking some cardboard and rest 2 pieces along each side. Play with it for a couple days and see if it doesn't bother you too much. Another thing to consider is to mount your monitor vertically (like mentioned above). I did this to my Bartop and don't regret doing it. It is really nice playing vertical shoot em ups and pinball on the beast! Since you have not purchased your monitor yet, that might be difficult. What kind of games do you plan on playing? That might help you hone in on a 4:3 or a 16:9 screen. Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  10. That looks fantastic. It's nice seeing a vp in a different frame. You kind of inspired me to a keep one myself Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  11. +1 on the happy competition joystick. I love it. Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  12. Are they LEDs for your pushbuttons? If so, just grab yourself a LED wiring harness from paradisearcadeshop: http://www.paradisearcadeshop.com/en/jamma-harnesses/677-ez-led-wiring-harness-085574200677.html Hook them up into a molex connector so you can just use your computer's power supply. You can find those 4 pin molex connectors for dirt cheap (or cut an existing one). Keep in mind that you might also need resistors for your LEDs. You might want to ask the vendor where you bought your LEDs from to ensure they already have resistors. Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  13. Absolutely beautiful! Sent from my Galaxy Tab 2 using Tapatalk HD
  14. In all seriousness, I like how you faded the artwork a bit to give it a classic faded effect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Along with the cigarette burns, don't forget to break the microswitch that allows you to move right with your joystick Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I love the marquee monitor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. So retro...I love it...the 50s style tile; the neon (Canadian) signs, the pinball machine, arcade games... Thanks for making my mouth water
  22. I normally order from these guys unless l need a product that they do not sell. They are quite stellar in my book. They were very friendly. If I recall, they typically post a notice on their site when they won't be around for a while. There are many positive reviews about their online store if you check out the BYOAC forums.
  23. Your cab looks amazing so far. Where did you purchase your speakers and amp? They look pretty sharp. Also, what kind of techniques did you use to route out your speaker circles and holes in your back panel? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
