This thread is an education, so many great projects I didn't know about.  Artifact and Deep 6 very nice!

Agreed, Sometimes flipping through the threads can be a bit intimidating. Nice to have a set location for referencing. I would not have seen a bunch of these. Artifact is dead sexy, I won't lie, I drooled a bit.

Ask me no questions I'll tell you no lies. Besides, writing another book would be a lot of work...

More HOF candidates anyone? :)

May I suggest a possible sticky for the time being?

That way folks who are new, or looking for inspiration can easily find the thread. Especially in case it falls off the front page? Not that I think it would any time soon.  But still as a showcase of noteworthy projects I believe the thread should be stickied up there much like the Control Panel Database in the main forum.   ;D

Nice job on the roll call, Ond..

Hmmm. You know, brass that up a bit, put some rivets on the letters, and replace the font with Peake, or Acadian, and that might be something I could use   :)

OK one more - waveryder's Bubblegum Betty.  This is HOF material for candy cabs.  All the artwork was custom.  Came out perfect and most importantly.... it's PINK!!!!   ;D

Xcelerator - by theCoder
- Epic driving cockpit cabinet! Probably the best on the board IMO. The documentation is wonderful, and his attention to details and driving "feel" is commendable.

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=57479.msg689689#msg689689

It's an honor to be include this list.  I learned a lot on the Xcelerator build.  I played it regularly and got pretty good at Need for Speed and Forza.  Unfortunately, after over $1,000 invested and countless hours on the build, I had to fire sale it just 2 days before my move to Austin TX.  $250.  Such a shame.  The move has worked out great though.  I lost my gameroom, but gained a 13 x 22 ft. dedicated woodshop. After the dust settles on the new home, I'd love to make a bartop pin.  I've got some ideas brewing...

I'd contribute to the list but every project I thought of has already been mentioned.

My favorite upright is Martijn's for attention to detail and overall fit and finish.. first class all the way.
Martijn's Streetfighter


I second that. It's the most impressive build i have seen. Such a slick design, so well executed. Beautiful!



Or what about his no-mess control panel. It's laminated (all wires and PCB onder it) with PS/2 connections cut out. That's innovation!  I am going to steal that idea:

Hello All !
   I normally participate in the Audio/Jukebox/MP3 forum.
Got the itch for a cab project and I've been viewing some incredible arcade builds :applaud:...Still haven't decided which cab is my favorite. But I thought I'd show off my Jukebox that I completed a few months ago for those who may not visit the other forums.

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=98605.0

Congrats to all ! There all great builds!  :cheers:

I can't find any links, but i recall seeing the cabinet about a year ago...

Basically I think it was a kit build (Mameroom's Ultimate Arcade II, maybe?) cabinet.
Light Guns, maybe cup holders, trackball, don't recall the joysticks.
The artwork was this custom artwork he had drawn up for him. Kind of a collage of comic book styled images, iirc. it was like a blue vs red of comic books.

The artwork really made the machine. Everything on the machine was kind of so-so for HoF material, but the artwork... whooooooo!

I remember reading through that thread a few times before I found BYOAC.  Even though it is a kit I really learned a lot from this build.  It is very well documented and a great place for a newbie to read about the evolution of a project from start to finish to revision.

I agree the artwork is fantastic.

OMG - no one has mentioned ARTIFACT yet??  C'mon guys!!!   ;D

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=68794.0;all



Thank you!!! I was inspired by so many GREAT projects here as well... I learned so much from all of you... It's a snowball effect.
I hope the SketchUp CAD plans are useful to some too!

My family has enjoyed it for a few years already. I've been 100% happy with the way it's designed, built, and works: wire coin return button to the motherboard's POWER switch, Smart Strip to turn everything else on, Mala on boot, DEAD EASY no keyboard/mouse. Those were vital to make the experience end to end and pleasant IMHO. A nice machine should make you forget that it's a computer inside.

It's been wonderful for teaching my son (now 8 ) about the evolution of technology, game design, aestetics... He has an appreciation for the SIMPLE things that have changed so much over the years. He usually DOUBLES my points at the old favorites (Galaga, Donkey Kong, etc) which is surreal to see.

:)

I second the earlier nomination of Pixelhugger's Mission Control.  It's not done, but it is an amazing example of what can be done with enough creativity (and time :) )  One can learn more from that project thread than many others combined.

That must be one of the reasons I haven't received my nomination yet.  Everybody's trying to figure out if I have any skills to actually build what's stuffed inside my head.

Remember, Pixelhugger finished his mark-I build of Mission Control, which by rights should be in here anyways. Such an amazing styled cabinet, wonderfully shaped, and professionally executed. Period. Besides, the work he has done so far on Mark II is worthy.  :notworthy:

I was actually thinking about nominating your wife. Seems like giving you permission that was quite the project in itself. ;)  :lol

Cocktail and Other
Sega Dreamcast Cocktail table (Michigan theme) - by deadpool18
- This cabinet inspired me for my Canucks cabinet. I thought he used the sports theme very smart, not overly done or in your face. Also, a cocktail that runs off a DC is awesome in my books.


Thanks for the mention!  It's still going strong  :cheers:
