Thanks, just what I needed


Those cups are pretty sweet!! Might just get a pair for the cocktail arcade in progress.

That thing is looking sweet! Just a suggestion, you might want to paint the inside of yellow sides. I see it's still white. Once you put the legs/feet on it will show more. (I could be wrong  :dunno)

Keep it up!

You have an eye for detail! You're right, the inside is still white. Forgot to paint that...  :banghead:

But it's the part where the steel legs will attach, so you will not see that part.

Disney Quest, I spent a good day in there playing everything they had. (Don't let my Bro know about the place though, I won't get him out of there for 2 weeks).   The build is looking good and I am truly looking forward to seeing it in action especially with your own version of the software running.

Today, the 32" screen for the cabinet arrived. It's a LG 32LK450. I placed it on top of a cocktail cabinet for reference.

Thanks, hope to have this 95% finished within 2 weeks.


Found an interesting site on how to use the hotel mode on the LG screen. It's now setup to automatically switch on when the cab is powered on (no need to use the remote control) and automagically switch to the RGB PC input.

Not taking the thunder away or anything. Thought this would be an interesting look over. Not only does the "small" cocktail style look great, so does the monster brethren.

I saw that one at Disney Quest and it's very impressive (and very big). Does anyone have the plans/blueprints for that one?  ;)

All we care about is your version of Battle Royale

Here I was thinking that you guys really cared about me   ;)

Working on the software. I've got a simple version running (just players that can move around and bump into each other). Players look like blocks now as does the maze because I haven't started on the graphics yet.

Viewing angles for the players are perfect. When you get further away, the screen loses some of the brightness, but that is also because I use grey tinted glass. It's basically what you see in the video for all sides.

Very cool. I'm curious, what are you using for game creation? I'm going to do a homebrew (eventually) using Game Maker.

Awesome work! Can't wait to see more pics. Were did you get the tinted glass/how much did it run you? I need to purchase something similar for my cocktail arcade. (finally going to start working on it again)

I use Visual C# Express with the XNA 4.0 framework and HLSL for the shaders (the glow around the pacman and other glowy stuff)

I got the glass at a local glass/windows retailer. It was about 80 euros (or $100).

It's not running software yet, it was just a youtube video op pac man championship edition dx. I'm going to run mame on it and my own version of pac man battle royale...

This is looking awesome. I would love to build a cabinet like this, but very few games can be played upside down on the opposite side other than PMBR. Can't wait to see how your "game" turns out!!

Looking really good. I just seen this cocktail cab on the net about a week ago for the first time and thought I had to make one, it was between the cab im working on now or the pacman cab. Ill prob make a smaller version of one with a 22" screen sometime.

I wish my memory was that good  :D

I mostly used pictures of the cabinet that were on the namco website. And I took some pictures of the cabinet myself (for the warning label).

Your work looks spot-on. Kudos to you for attempting this project, especially the game design aspect. I can't imagine the hours of programming it will take to recreate this game.

That gets me to thinking about Toru Iwatani's design of the original Pac-Man, particularly the ghost AI:

"When you play the game, it might seem as if the four ghosts are actively chasing you ... Instead, itís only Blinky, the red ghost, who doggedly pursues you throughout the game. Pinky, the pink ghost (naturally), simply wants to position itself at a point thatís 32 pixels in front of Pac-Manís mouth. The blue ghost, Inky, is seeking to position itself at a similar fixed spot. And Clyde, the orange ghost, moves completely at random."
