Is the internal roomy enough for an ATX motherboard or is that too big?

Should be.  Have dimensions?

She's a beaut.

After almost two years of deliberation I finally settled on the Evo XR as my kit of choice and I'm 90% done with the art package but now I might have to bump up to the widescreen version. That extra wide CP looks super comfy.

I decided to go with the widescreen XR, and Haruman's post convinced to go with a trackball also.

Planning for iL Eurostick joysticks and iL or Happ 28mm buttons and a 3" Utrak.

I think I'll use an ipac-2 for the controls unless someone has a better suggestion.  Initially using a Pi3, maybe eventually a PC.

Got a 24" Benq RL2455 gaming monitor on Black Friday

  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

The control panel is 1/2" thick correct? I'm guessing that means it won't take Sanwa obsn type buttons, especially if plexiglass is used?

For un drilled cp's what's the best way to cut the button holes? I have a 24mm forstner bit but I'm not sure how well that would work with melamine.

What size speaker does this take, 3"? And does anyone have a recommendation on a particular one and a corresponding amp?

How thick is the plexi bezel and how is it installed/held in place?

And lastly: how do you handle lighting the marquee?

without plexiglass you can use the screw in types as I route away .25" from the wood.  Which kit are you looking at?

Forstner bit works great if you take it slow and have sacrificial wood underneath.

Excited about my bartop kit.
 
Santa brought me the IPAC-2 board, already got a bunch of iL buttons and  2 iL eurostick joysticks, plus an ultitrak trackball.

Got an RPI3 all geared up with a 128gb card running Hyperpie.

Got the iPac since I'm using the trackball. If had to get the USB interface cable for the ultitrak with a xin mo or zero delay, then I'd just be a few dollars less than the ipac2 anyway.  And I plan on eventually going with a PC instead of rpi3 if that matters.

Hey HaRuMaN,

Are you releasing the plans or cnc files for your 2 Nintendo barcade cabinets?

I would like to build each one.

No I am not.  However, if you get the files from here:

https://www.classicarcadecabinets.com/donkey-kong.html

And basically chop off the bottom and scale it down, that's basically what I did.   :cheers:

Huge thanks to Haruman (Lee)! Even after he got injured, he still took the time to reply back to my emails about my bartop order.  If you're in the market for a bartop or a bartop the you can customize, reach out to Lee.  He produces an incredible product and he takes the time to answer any questions you might have!

Here's my Haruman customs evo xr2 bartop.
:cheers:   
Thanks again Lee!

Yeah! I decided to get with a HP LP2065 (4x3) 20" monitor. Most of the retro gaming I'll be enjoying is 4x3. However, I'm still lusting over more modern widescreen games like Tekken 7. I'll just deal with the "letterboxing."

Looks great!!!!

Yeah the EVO is set up with 4:3 in mind. 

However the EVO widescreen can do up to a 24" widescreen.

How many of those EVO Wides are out in the wild?   My kit set to arrive Thursday.  Hopefully I can successfully build a bartop and post a finished pic on here.   Though I won't have any artwork.

This will be about the 4th or 5th wide I think?

I'm so glad you take extra care when packaging your products for shipment.  FedEx doesn't apparently feel the same way, but at least nothing inside the box was damaged!

Have one side glued together and I am going to try and get the other side done tonight before I have to leave for a work trip tonight.

They seem be to extra brutal as of late.  I recently assembled a bartop and shipped it to the customer...  luckily the customer had security cameras on the driveway, he provided me with video of the driver slamming the package to the concrete...  after dropping it on another box in the truck and crushing that box. 

Amazingly, FedEx didn't fight me on that claim.   ::)

Our normal delivery guys around here are great, I deal with them a lot with work, so I know them, but yeah, lately, with the seasonal help, they could care less.  We have a seasonal guy servicing our office right now, and we had received a wooden office bookcase that was broken in the package.  We have a return label on it and it sits up front for the delivery guy.  When he came by every time before Christmas, his truck was slammed, wall to wall, I told him wait until it slows down and he can get it then, because it is a big box.  So finally, last week, he stops in to drop off a package for me (which is leaves at the very first open door he comes to mind you, not my office, 30 feet further down the hall) grabs the bookcase box and heads outside...  10 minutes later a lady tells me there is a big box sitting in our parking lot, I go outside and low and behold its the stupid bookcase.  Apparently, when the guy took it, he just set it down at the back of the truck, forgot it, and drove off.  So it's once again sitting at the door, waiting on him.  I have two deliveries coming this week, so we are going to try again.  If he fails this time I'm reporting him.  Our normal guy would have never treated us like this.

OK.   Got my Widescreen EVO XR kit from Haruman.  Took inventory of everything and tried to line everything up using the Ultimate Widescreen instructions.   Think I got the dry fit right. 

Ordered some EZ-Lok press-fit inserts to undermount my iL Eurosticks and will have to figure out how to install the threaded inserts that came with the Ultimarc U-trak. 

Just bought a 2'x2'x 1/2" scrap piece of MDF from Home Depot to practice on.
