This One......http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,135455.0.html

 :soapbox: you know what I love?  When somebody posts their own build in the HoF thread because they think it will drum up positive response over on their build thread.  L.O.V.E. THAT!

Seconded. If your project has been around for a few weeks with only one comment (and that comment isn't about the quality of the build), it's probably not HoF worthy.

Also, I don't like your artwork. The way you have Chun-Li folded over like that just looks odd. The vagina speaker doesn't help, either.

I will give you credit for this line, though - it made me laugh:

Cant blame him for trying we all dream to be here, my goal is to eventually be in here if i don't make it with my current rig (which i doubt will as its my first)
my second machine will be!

It has been some time since we have seen a HOF machine though.

Make the cab for yourself, and your needs, not for the validation of others.
If your cab ends up in here, great, you did an exceptional job and had processes and techniques that should be examples to others. At the same time, your cab's theme was well executed, and is one that people would love to own for themselves.
But the bottom line is, promoting your own to get into the HTF is kinda low. If people think your project is exceptional, it'd be in here.

Yeah totally get that it is to promote your own was just saying that alot of people would love to be in here.
On the note of building the machine for your needs my machine isn't actually for me, i am building it as a birthday present for my daughter.
I hope to un-vale it next year on her birthday.

(which i doubt will as its my first)

You never know. The SHMUP was my 1st cab build ever and it got listed. It took me 3-4 months to get it where I wanted it and when I started I was asking the community here for all kinds of input. When it was all said and done it turned out to be well liked by lots of folks.

My favorite is one posted on here years ago called the green machine or something to that effect, but I can't find it.

Most of these are so perfect they look computer generated...

I'm surprised no one has posted this one. Simply the best Bartop ever.

That is a real beauty

I think I would like to nominate Blip.  The elegant retro design, the hidden swappable cp, the LCD marquee, the LEDs for the game controls. 

 :applaud:

Nice work

It's usually considered poor form to nominate your OWN project for this thread.

I'm sure I saw this cab on here, it had a LCD mounted vertically to maximize on screen space between pinball and mame?  Vs rotating a screen?

Looking back through some of the builds in this thread, I'd say all the 2015 UCA winners deserve a spot here.
