I managed to amass enough cardboard to build a big block of what the cabinet will look like. I made the dimensions roughly the same size and erred on the side of being slightly larger. I just needed to make sure that this cabinet won't overwhelm my small apartment infuriating my GF any further.



Cool! It fits throw the hallway out the door.

Oh... yeah... that's HER bra alright... I mean why would it be anyone elses. No one likes to build cabinets in lingerie right? You're talking crazy go nuts.

So I got more tokens this week. Probably enough to cover what I would like to do with the cut out artwork. I was sad to find that the bag of random tokens didn't include any from Aladdin's Castle which was a staple of mine growing up. Not as much as Fun N Games but enough to want to include it.





Hey look! Someone in my building is throwing out a perfectly good cardboard arcade machine.

REBOOTED.

A friend of mine is now helping me with the wood working.

I have a bag full of Electric Ice buttons with leaf springs.

Noticed they now have something called Helio9 which sound brighter. Anyone have any insight?

I got a coin door this week. Not crazy about it. Since it's not going to function and is purely for aesthetic purposes I might keep looking around for another in my price range. I was outbid on a lovely williams pin coin door on Ebay. Blarg.

Ha... That's crazy. But he's right, 90's Russia was SUPER mob driven.

The name The Machine is temporary until the final CP design is decided upon. I hoping to cut it tomorrow but I'm auditioning a lot this week so I haven't had a lot of time. I like a 4 hour window to work in the garage. I also need to get more scrap wood. I heard back from Andy and confirmed that USB connection is fine on the encoders so one is being ordered.


Also, I found a picture of the first thing to wet my appetite as far as putting a cab in my house. It was in a issue of Nintendo Power. I think they were either giving it away or someone was showing the magazine what they had done.

Either way, I remember thinking "I need to make this happen"

You know, for all the trouble of amassing all the controllers and building this dedicated Nintendo Shrine, the guy doesn't have that many games.
Yeah that was a long time ago. It was published in a very early issue of Nintendo Power, so there were not very many NES games out at the time. I remember being very envious when I first read that issue. If I remember correctly this cab was recently sold on eBay.

Spinner on order. Seriously considering upgrading the lighting to the Helio9's from GGG if I could find a video of them in action.

Need to decide on how many buttons I'm going to have on the control panel.


Specifically for the front end. I'm playing around hyperspin but I'm also going to look at maximus. I have a strong enough chip so resources aren't a problem. I want it to be slick but functional.

After the months and months of tweaking, I'd like this cab to eventually be keyboard free.

How many buttons for navigation do you recommend. I've been looking over the CP data base and it varies signifigantly. 

I will be using Electric Ice buttons and GGG has some nice inserts.

P1,P2,P3,P4, Credit, Pause, Esc, Enter, GO,


Are these all the function buttons I'd need?

Some people have Arrow buttons. Some have nothing at all. (I'm assuming they use their keyboards)

For "arrow buttons", use P1 joystick.

Not sure if you'll need the Enter or Go buttons.

Many people configure the FE so P1 Button1 launches games.

Make your game/emulator list and install/configure your software so you know which admin buttons you want/need before you drill your control panel.

:cheers:
Good idea. I didn't even consider having the joys work that way. My previous machine had mame32 on it so I have no real experience with a slick front end. I was previously just using the track ball.

I suppose the EI buttons could light up indicating what buttons are active while in the front end as well.

Welp, I'm going to have to really pick and choose a front end now. My roms and emulators are in a bunch of different places.

I'm thinking I should de-case my computer. I have this old Antec case that, while functional, is very large. I've been trying to see different solutions for mounting the mother board in a cabinet. Seems that many mounts are just DIY stand offs. I've seen a few others who have really nice acrylic test benches but they are really expensive.

Is anyone aware of any builds showing little more detail than a photo of mounting mother boards? 


I'm also looking at speakers right now. Some have dedicated amps and speakers while others just use just above base model pc speakers and bass units.

Got the last of the arcade specific CP parts in this week.   

Thanks Randy and Andy...you're dandy?

Can anyone recommend how to holster the Aimtrak guns to the side of the cab? Has anyone ever painted their Aimtrak guns? Single coat spray with clear coat afterward? Considering matching it to the T-molding which will not be blue, red or black. Possibly.





Looking forward to the frankenpanel comments.

My spinal tap cab has face-mounted holsters on either side of the coin door. It's a pretty slick system.

When I read the title of this cab I thought it was going to look like Scrooge McDuck's money tower for some reason. Anyways, for the coins, can't you just toss them into a jug of vinegar for a few hours? That's what we used to do with pennies for some reason.

The pickling action makes them taste better and extends shelf life so you can have them out of season I believe.

I find it's best to add a touch of dill. Helps with the metal taste.

I live in Southern California so I'm using cilantro.

Has anyone ever cracked open the ball top on a GGG Leaf Pro? I'd like to know what the internal shaft is composed of.
I want to replace the ball top with something in a different color and texture. If it's a straight shaft then I hopeto use epoxy and permanently mount a different ball top.

I have.  It's a ---smurfing--- hassle.  Better to replace the whole stick.  I built a replacement stick out of a long bolt, only thing is you need a shaft cover, I was going with a colored one so it didn't matter but you can find some chromed pipe the right size in plumbing supply and cut a sleeve. 

IIRC the top is reverse beveled metal and that ball is ontop of another ball which is ontop of some adamantium.  ---smurfing--- hassle.

Hmmmm... I'm curious about what's in there now. I might break one and attempt to replace it. I like the leaf feel vs the old micro's I had on my last cab. Randy informed me that they kept costs lower by not making it swappable but they might change that later on. A buddy of mine has access to a machine shop. Or he used to. I'm going to see if he can reproduce the joy shaft with a threaded top that would accept the hard candy ball tops I'm interested in.

No luck at the machine shop.

Started playing around with button layouts on some study cardboard. Too cramped. Probably going to make the CP a little wider.

So I finally got around to booking some time to work on this cab I've been stop starting forever.  :banghead:. I found a local workshop in LA that fit the bill. It's been a while since I cut wood and worked with these kinds of tools so today was all about cutting and seeing if I could fumble my way around with simple stuff. I got some cheap ply and started throwing together what I thought would be the CP. It's been a slow go. My measurements were on point but I caught a LOT of mistakes before I made them. It's only a matter of time before I mess up irrevocably. I'm looking at this as practice on ply. I had my old layout that I cut into cardboard and I used that as a rough estimate of what I wanted to do. I didn't get very far. It was slow going and I had to get some instructions on some of the tools I've never used in the woodshop.

So, I started getting into the CP more and realized that it's not going to be wide enough. I started laying everything out and I found that there wasn't enough room for resting hands as you play. I'm going to add an additional 5 inches. The depth is OK but I might not like that either.  So the board is basically scrap. Which is fine because I figured I wouldn't get it right out of the gate.



SO, I went ahead and drilled the holes for the buttons anyway but I center balanced everything. So the buttons would be the proper distance from the left and the right sides and I'd eventually run out of room in the middle. As you can see, the buttons on P1 ended up overlapping with the trackball housing. Next I cut the board right down the middle. This way I use it as a rough template on the longer board. I'm going to practice with the router on the board and see if I can set up a jig to cut out the joy mounts next.





The wood was splintering pretty badly. I was using fostner bits. next time I don't go all the way though and flip the board over. I think that will help???

Put a piece of scrap board under your control panel when you drill with the forstner bit. That will prevent splintering and blowouts.

This. 


If you don't have scrap wood to spare, you can technically do the thing where you drill partway on one side, and then flip it.  Just make sure you drill a small pilot hole for the center of each hole.  That way, you stand half a chance of the hole being straight and not zig-zagging its way through the wood.  Truthfully, I recommend drilling the pilot holes, regardless of the method you use.

I didn't have a lot of time so I worked on using the router. I literally haven't handled one since shop class. Which was also the time I broke it. (Took WAY to big a cut). So, after some cutting of scrap with a plunge router, I  worked on creating a router jig. I saw a sticky on how to do this so I started squaring wood and tried to make one. Seemed pretty easy. I'm going to be back there tomorrow to glue them together. I might make one for the track ball, flight stick and ultra stick as well. In cutting on MDF I realized that I hate the dust it makes. SO much dust. I was considering an MDF CP top as it seemed like it would be more sculptable but hand cutting it was a mess.

Sooooooo after some trial and error and more and more error, I officially outsourced the lion's share of cutting and building this cabinet. My lines were never straight enough to meet the design I planned out and it started getting expensive constantly starting over. In the end, I would have been more pissed at the sub par finished project than I am that I can't build the damn thing myself. Oh well.  :-\

I found a local guy in LA that does nothing but custom cabs and sent him my pitch. He said he only takes on a few projects he's in interested in building. He liked the concept and has been working on it for a few months off and on. I'll post more pics as i get them.

I still don't have a name for this thing yet either. Coin Arc?

Help with LED WIZ
So all the construction is done but we are running into issues with wiring. Can't seem to get it to work. Here's an email I got from the guy putting it together

"Hello Jim...about your arcade I been struggling very much with the led wiz and can't figure it out. I have tried so many options but nothing seems to work 100%, I got the buttons to light up with a version of mame called power mame and the lights started to work when I used with ledblinky but not for everything. The software from led wiz won't work with power mame which means I can not load a lot of games that other versions of mame does, like all the street fighters they do not run on this version and then on the other systems like Nintendo and segas can't get them to work is a bit frustrating for me because normally is easy for me to learn something fast but this is very confusing and lacking on support and tutorials most of them are for pinball machines. Is there any info, doc, or tutorials on setting up LED wiz on multi platforms arcade cabs?"

Interesting color scheme.  Damn that's shiny!  Sorry, but I use Ultimarc and LEDBlinky.  Not sure about the Wiz.
