Cocktail arcade(TV replaced with LCD, finally!)
« on: August 05, 2011, 07:42:53 am »
Been working on this for a couple of weeks now but since I've been slacking off a bit, thought posting it would help me move it along. Been admiring all of the latest cocktail arcades on this site and decided I wanted to build one for myself. I searched CL for a cheap TV to use (this monster is heavy). So I started working on the frame. (see pic below).

Also cut both sides, I didn't want the base to be plain so I added some curves. As you can see it's higher than most cocktail arcades and that's just what I wanted. Didn't feel like leaning over a table that was too low. My plan is to also put pinmame or future pinball (couldn't wait and dicided to put one of the pinball buttons on the side). Planning on painting it black with chrome t-molding, red and blue lightup buttons, with sound activated blue and red cathode lights on the bottom. As for artwork, don't worry I've emailed Snaake already  ;D.

Let me know what you think.

I really like it.  Can't wait to see the finished product.
If there's bees in the trap I'm catching em
By the thorax and abdomen
And sanding the stingers down to a rough quill
Then I dip em in ink, and I scribble a bit
But if it they wriggle then I tickle em until they hold still
Lemme say it again
In my land of pretend
I use bees as a mf'n pen

Good luck on the project. It's always nice to see a good cocktail build.
Is that a 32" tv? If it weighs anywhere near what my 32" Sony Wega weighs, good luck and use lots of supports.
Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I hope it is a 32"... because I want to see it done before I use my 32" for a similar project...

Thanks for following my threads guys.

Measured the TV and it is a 27", (I originally build the frame to house a 32 inch TV) but came across the widescreen 27. Don't worry about support it has plenty, plus I'll be adding an additional center wheel to hold most of the weight.

Here's the parts I'm planning on using.

From GGG:

LED Wiz 32-port
(2) NovaGem Coin Drop Replacement Buttons
White SpectraLite Illuminated buttons

Trackball (from X-arcade)

(Changed my mind about the white clear buttons so I ordered some from Paradise: Convex LED lighted buttons (red,blue). I'll see which ones look better.

Ebay:
Ion Audio iCUE3 Discover DJ USB Turntable Computer System

Giant Gears of War 3 poster
http://cgi.ebay.com/GEARS-WAR-3-HUGE-2-QUALITY-GIANT-POSTER-ART-PRINT-/250785478090?pt=UK_Arts_Posters_RL&hash=item3a63fab5ca

The poster is just for my game room.

 :cheers:

Yeah, it definitely looks like a sturdy frame that you built. This looks like it'll be a great design for both horizontal and vertical games

Okay, I was able to do so more work yesterday (finally, I know). After cutting the rest of the outer body pieces I clamped everything on the frame just to see what it will look like. I'm happy with the way it's turning out. I still have to cut the pieces for the control panels and I think I need an arch below the CPs to match the sides. I'm using 3/4 melamine, this thing is heavy  :angry:!  (Pic 959 is where I still need to add the arch.)

Thanks for following my slow moving thread  ;D

Hi, first of all, it seems to be a amazing project.
I think that it will be my next project, to put in the center of my living room :P
Congratulations.

Thanks for the comments.
I ran into some problems with all this rain here in Jersey. My basement ended up with about 2 inches of rain. Luckily I had moved most of my arcade related parts to the first floor. Unfortunately the CP pieces I had cut for the cocktail got ruined, also had to remove the carpet (which you can see in the pics).  :hissy:
Moving on. I decided it would be a good idea to add a 5th leg at the center of the base to hold the TV, just to make sure it doesn't come crashing down. It might be overkill but better safe than sorry. Also dropped the TV in the base to test. This thing is getting heavy quick, I might end up using 1/2 inch wood for the top surrounding the screen instead of the 3/4.
I don't have a name for this thing yet, so any suggestions?

Sorry to hear about the rain in the basement!  The project looks great though!  I'm planning a cocktail build in my head and I might try and copy parts of your setup.  Good Job!

As for a name how about "Overbuilt Back-breaker"?   ;D  Just kidding.  Seriously tho, you could set a truck on there with all that lumber you got. At this rate you'll need 4 guys to get that up and down any kind of stairs. 

I think a lot of people under estimate the strength of 2x4's. I wish I could find the pic I had of a building basically burnt to the ground. The only thing left standing was a completely charred and fried 2X6 with a 6 inch metal I-beam draped over it, melted like a piece of plastic. It was quite obvious that the lumber held up much longer than the metal had.

I will say tho that the cab looks really cool  :applaud:

As like many of you, work, life and family have kept me away from my build. But I manage to do a little work. First off melamine is too hard to paint,  :angry: tried sanding off the top layer but the paint still wouldn't stick. Had some black vinyl that I bought from Home Depot, a while back so decided to give it a go. (BTW 8ft x 4 ft black pieces are on sale for $42 in NJ that is). Here are some pics. As usual comments and questions are welcomed.

Here are some more pics. Decided to bring one side in, while the other is still drying, plus I got home late so I couldn't trim the excess vinyl. As you can see I hammered in some t-molding, since I wasn't planning on using the vinyl, the 3/4 inch t-molding I had isn't going to cover it properly. So I'll have to order the next size up.  :blah:  :blah: :blah:
Here are the pics.

Project is on hold until I get the right size t-molding. Didn't really calculate for the vinyl adding that much but now the 3/4 inch chrome molding is a bit short.

In the mean time here's a street fighter x Tekken stick I've been working on (didn't want to start a new project thread since I didn't take many pics). At first I wasn't sure on the white t-molding but I think it works. Also the buttons will light up as well as the balltop. Let me know what you think.

Still trying to get things done. Haven't abandoned my cocktail arcade, just ordered some 13/16 t-molding but  :angry: still doesn't cover both sides on the vinyl and wood. Guess I have to go with 1 inch.
Here's some pics of two fight sticks I've been working on. (they'll probably be x-mas gifts for my brothers since I don't have a PS3). Street fighter Tekken stick is finally all wired up as you can see button light up when pressed. The street fighter zombie stick will have one of Vigo's encoder's inside. Not sure why but the new batch (at least the one I ordered) didn't have the PS3 button layout on the back so I just used one of the encoder's I had ordered the last time from Vigo. BTW the Street Fighter zombie art was put together by Snaake. Great job buddy.

Let me know what you think.

Street Fighter Zombie Stick has been finished, we actually tested this weekend. All working with no issues. Here are some pics.  PIC 1106 shows the bottom of the stick (wanted to add a little something) and pic 1111 shows the cool screw cap plugs I found at Sears.

« Reply #23 on: February 02, 2012, 08:46:49 am »
Back again (project is still going, just very, very slow). Progress so far has been:
Sides of the cocktail arcade have been bolted on the frame (not just clamped on)
cut out the both control panels (without button layout yet)
came up with my own (ghetto looking) pinball plunger

Got some questions for any cocktail arcade owners. Before setting the button layout I was wondering if I can get Mame to split-screen fighting games (like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat) so each person can view their own screen.
I know more cocktails-specific games like Mr. Do and Mrs Pacman have that flip screen option but I can't figure out if I can split screen other games. Since my cocktail arcade is only 2-sided I don't want to add 6-buttons on each side if I can't play fighting games.

Here's some pics (sorry for the low quality)

Yes you can, mame has a 'cocktail mode' option that does exactly that.
Kludged together a MAME cab 10 years ago, it got a makeover January 2012

Cocktail mode on mame will take care of the whole head to head screen flip like how you may remember Pacman and others on cocktails.

For what you're looking to do for fighters, etc. Yes that is also possible.
Check out Louis Tully's fine Star Trek cab, that is what he did.

I'll look into it when I get home today. The only thing I found was to turn the screen clockwise but that didn't fix the fighting games. Glad to know it is possible.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys  :cheers:

Okay was able to work on the arcade a bit this weekend. Did the following:

-drilled holes to mount the joysticks.

-also cut out the bezel. (was going to have artwork covered by a plexi) but decided to save a little money so I will just put black vinyl on the bezel.

Pics show joysticks installed, bezel clamped while waiting for glue to dry and finally placed over TV for a test fit. I glued on the black vinyl on the bezel and under the CP panels but left it in the garage drying. Want to make sure I give it enough time to dry properly this time.  :blah:

Re: Cocktail arcade(laminated bezel/need art suggestions)
« Reply #33 on: February 24, 2012, 07:34:21 am »
Small update:
            after 2 days of letting the glue dry, I was able to route off the extra laminate. I'm very happy with the results. (tip: for anyone who is dealing with laminate, it's a good idea to tape off the border so when you route off the sides you can avoid scratches). Panels under CPs were also laminated and trimmed.

Need some suggestions for artwork, Was thinking of putting player 1 characters like Mario,  Billy Lee..., on one side and player 2 characters like Luigi, Jimmy Lee for player 2's CP. Not sold on the idea so I welcome any suggestions. Other ideas for art are just circling the buttons and adding arrows around the joysticks with a base color, and the last idea I had was to use those SF characters with the "Tron" theme as the art, figure the light up buttons would really bring out the characters.  :blah: :blah: :blah:

Here are the pics. Let me know what you think.

Please do not ruin your awesome cabinet with clip-art. 

Are you planning on dropping some smoked glass on top of the monitor?  It looks like it is sitting a little low.  I find that black matteboard (with a black core) makes an awesome bezel for an LCD monitor.  Keep it going!   :cheers:

Thanks for asking LT. Yeah, still lost on the artwork/theme (haven't been playing it  :cry:) .
Working on trying to light up the pinball plunger balltop, and ordered some more parts (1 and 1/2 inch T-molding). Think I'll go with Javeryh's idea and get some smoked glass for the top.  (Maybe this will get me moving again  :banghead:)

Been trying to stay busy since some parts are delayed. Here's a couple of side projects I've been messing with.


 :cheers:

Starting to work on my cocktail arcade again. I was stuck for a long, long while deciding on the art but finally came up with something. Here's where the idea came from. Before anyone asks the characters will not be on there (just the hexagon patterns and outline for the buttons.

I contacted Snaake and he'll be working his photoshop magic on this. No extra art on the sides, just trying to give it that nice sleek look.

Will keep you posted.

Nice project ! Look good :applaud:
But you don't be affraid with your TV  who lay on the bottom ? It's not really a heavy part...take care if you move the cab !
You should throw away the plastic frame and fix the tube on a CP wood frame.
