The link is asking me for password, am I allowed to see the pictures? if yes, then what is the password?

I've tested this from various PC's (other than my own) no password required.

Yes it asks me for a password as well
This is a Private Album

Please enter the password from album Ond_photos to view this private album.

Private Album Password:

I think if you click on the direct link you will be switched to the photobucket page and be prompted for a password as you say.   If you click on the play button in the video player applet which should appear in my post then the video should play just fine within the current page i.e. this thread.

If you can't see the player applet then  :dunno .  Could be a browser issue.  I've tried accessing the player applet from various peoples PC's including at work and it seems to go OK.

Wow, been ages since I've posted here, but I was searching for some info on my cab build that I knew I had in a post here and came across this thread. Very belated thanks to everyone who had nice things to say about my Deep 6 cabinet.  :cheers:

It's still running great, haven't done anything new to it or started any new projects, hence my absence, but I couldn't have done it without this community!

Its funny your not the only one to mention "rabbit" during the build, had to budget for batteries , at least she was smiling :) also used the "giant invisible rabbit" i was pet sitting for all the sawdust in the livingroom, note to future builds USE DUST SHEETS!! :)

I think it's safe to say that Ond and Pixelhugger are both in TOTAL agreement with this sentiment.   :laugh2:

I fail to see why this build is HOF material. It's a kit build with a disproportately sized monitor. It's a great first outting but isn't earth moving IMHO.

To be fair, the real Captain Caveman wasn't big on subtlety either, what with shouting his own name loudly before pounding the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- out of stuff...  :laugh:

The real question is, has he built his own Swiss Army Club like Cavey had in the cartoon?

Now that would be impressive.

I hearby officially withdraw my entry to the hall of fame  :laugh2: , I WAS genuinely tooting my own horn , had literally just connected the last wire and it worked first time, so i was buzzing and chuffed, so i entered it for a joke/laugh/bit of fun (few options to look up on google for some "He's just tooting his own horn and trying to get attention on a mediocre kit build.  Im glad you came out and said it, I was trying to be reserved." there`re few judgmental sentences that invoke pity for the judge but you got it spot on, there`s someone out there for you honest :) ) I mean seriously i can tell its a turd rolled in glitter but i had a go, it turned out ok and as i`ve just joined this forum thought there`d be humour in saying i`m the greatest :) , i mean now i know i can do it maybe i`ll splash out on expensive vinyl, huge screens and controls the size of a nasa space launch centre, but i`m glad some of you saw the funny side, no swiss army club, the teen angels are giving me grief and i`ve been banned from playing with heavy blunt objects and power tools  :badmood: , have fun people, big respect for you all, was glad to be a part of it  :applaud:

a comment was pointed out to me "I fail to see why this build is HOF material. It's a kit build with a disproportately sized monitor. It's a great first outting but isn't earth moving IMHO"  the only thing about my cabinet that was a kit was an arcade builders kit which was a bunch of buttons , a mini-pac , two joysticks and a coin mech the actual cabinet is ALL my own work made from an 8ft x 4ft 18mm mdf and a 12mm 8ft x 4ft mdf board some baton and a shed load of screws and vinyl just wanted to clarify that, and i still know it isnt HOF worthy but credit where credits due.  :cheers:

Thanks guys. Those indents on the CP are so you can comfortably get to the pinball buttons without having to reach around a lip.

Gotta say Griff... That is some sexy looking artwork... I noticed the 2 screens as well. Can I get a point to the build thread of this? I'd like to see how you've used/setup your dual monitors as I'm struggling right now with what to do with mine   :dizzy:

Its great seeing all these beautiful machines in one thread and I'm honored to have mine included.
 
I really love rockyrockets Tempest(ish) cabaret. I think its one of the classiest builds ever and g-rock26's Project Morph is very cool and innovative.
