Suggestions Needed For 2 Cabs
« on: January 12, 2014, 06:39:45 pm »
Alright ladies & gents, I picked these up in 06 hoping to make these into mini-cades for my little girls, but the years have went and I have had these sitting in storage since.  I was thinking about making one into a jukebox but I already have two of those.  My wife suggest putting them back to back, throwing a monitor in each going to one PCB and making them some kind of 4 player game like Dungeon's & Dragons, Gauntlet or Battletoads.

Any ideas?  I value everyone's opinions on here so it would mean a lot for some suggestions.

My suggestion- a "linked" MAME setup. You could play classics like Bomberman and also the new (indie) revival of local co-op games, like Samurai Gunn and Towerfall (the former just got released on PC, the latter will be soon).
Completed projects: Pac bartop (Plug & Play), 30th Anniversary Pac cab (MAME), Point Blank (PS1), Centipede (arcade hardware- light restore), VS. Super Mario Bros (arcade hardware- light restore) Tetris Cocktail (SNES), Arcade Classics upright (60-in-1, then MAME), Multi-Raiden (arcade hardware). Pac Man vs.(Gamecube),

Working on: Pinball Re-theme, Homebrew arcade arena shooter

I really like that back to back idea, it's begging for a hockey game setup.  A lot of the hockey games are 2 on 2 four player:
Hit the Ice, Hat Trick Hero, 2 on 2 open ice challenge

Or you could do a basketball theme if that's not your thing for some NBA Jam

Yeah the 4 back to back 4 player sounds like a cool idea.  Those Indie games are awesome too!  Towerfall looks super sweet.

This.  Hockey or NBA JAM for reals.

After debating for a month, my kids won with their arguments and I am making one of these a "mini" Ms. Pacman and the other will be a Bad Dudes & Battletoads combo since the kids like those two games the most.

I'll throw some pics up as I go.  Kind of have like 5 projects going at once.





Mini Ms. Pacman

Awesome use of Battletoads

I don't share many ideas, but I always thought a Battletoads v. TMNT cab would be cool.

Cool deal fellas.  I'll post pictures as soon as I start working in these.  I thought about doing the TMNT & Battletoads but the kids win out everytime.

Looks like it should be a nice double build.
I look forward to seeing the progress.
