Popeye CRT Nintendo Bartop !!!! FINISHED !!!!!!!
« on: April 05, 2013, 06:39:09 am »
Hi there,

I'm new to this forum so this will be my first w.i.p. trip here.

After 2 VerticCade ( Koenigs.dk) I will go for a classic cab theme in bartop size.

This one will have a crt and a xbox .. so 2 things I'm new with... before I used the Lcd an pc stuff...

So, I hope to see you soon and I insert some pictures from my prev. build

Greetings

First I have to deal with the Xbox to softmode it and get al the games working....
So if that's ready, I'm going to build the cab that I have in mind for it....

So, nothing special going on right now, but we keep on posting ;)

It is usually a good idea after discharging a tv, to wait 20 mintues or so and and then discharge again, just to be sure.

Nice to see you to Tony.

I softmode the Xbox yesterday, so now I have to put coinops on IT.
First I wanne try to put some games on the basic 5gb harddrive. Maybe a lite version of coinops?

After struggle with usb sticks to softmode the xbox, I had to order a memorycard for it.
When it was arrived, I made a action replay card, to solder a usb cord on it.


Now the softmode was done very quickly   

Yesterday was a struggle with a harddrive to replace ... the whole process worked fine, till a error came up at fatx format of the 30 gb drive.

I checked the compatible list of harddrives and I order 2 drives ( 40 and 80 gb  for a total 12,50 euro   still a Dutch basterd

So I did also the Coinops5 reduce to a level that it will fit on a 40 gb drive... and delete the psx and other console stuff.
When I can pickup Tuesday the harddrives, I can finish this and finally starting with the building part...


greetings.

So finally I past the test on Install Mame and some roms, to test things out.

You can see that a Horizontal game looks better than a Vertical game on this small tv.
But I like it to be a small cab, after two big screens ( 15 and 19 inch   

I'm just not sure if I only put Mame on the cab or the whole deal with Coinops5 ?

It's gonna be a classic theme bartop... so, i think that only arcade games suit the best?
What do you guys think?

Keep the game count low and groom it well for the bartop.  It will be much more enjoyable that way.

Bigger harddrive installed and Visionary 2 up and running.

I think now it's time for ACTION  8)
Only thing I'm struggle with is.... How many buttons ? I want keeping it simpel, but, if you wanna play all the games, maybe I don't get enough buttons....   :banghead:
I was planning to use 3 action buttons... the original theme has one button, so I have to redesign the cp a bit..
Now on my MameCade I have 6 buttons, and I don't even use them all....

As you can see in my prev. pictures I took, I love the popeye theme.
So this will be my next Bartop build and Nintendo cab transform into a Bartop model.

Small crt vs small bartop I hope  >:D

Lots of ideas for this one.
In my mind it's 99% done, but the only thing I'm not sure of is the controlepanel   :banghead:
Specially the buttons layout  :hissy:

I just depends on what you want to play.  I just got done with my DK machine and I used 3 buttons.  I can play about 99% of what I want to play on it.  I think one of the shmups uses 6 buttons.  I don't play fighters though and I have a NeoGeo cabinet, so I don't need to play those on it ;)

That's the same thing I was thinking about.
My first cab had 4 buttons and I used only 3  ::)
My last one had 6 and I never used them all, because I don't play fighters, But I got a lot of questions on the first build, if I got one with 6 buttons....  :banghead:

So I think that I go for the 3 button setup, NeoGeo games are mostly played with max 3 buttons, so this cab can handle that to...  :cheers:

Hi,

Which buttons do you like? the first cab with the 4 button layout or the 6 button layout?

A little update here:

Scale the whole thing down to Height 75cm .. but it has to be a little bit bigger ...    :banghead:
The crt is to big for it, so it's gonna be a big bartop    :hissy:

Tomorrow I make a bigger one, it's almost a full cab   

What do you guys think of the concept, I like the shape this way, but do I need to cut the bottom part a bit? Last 2 pictures are cut at the bottom..

both, and try to not do multiple posts in a row, you can answer everyone's question in one, cuts back on wasteful and longer threads than needed.

Sorry, I'm not so use to it  :dizzy: I'll keep it in mind  ;)

First cab: These are from a dutch website.

Second cab is from a german site:
These are the small menu buttons:

These are the Action buttons:

I printed the text and icons on glossy paper.

No such thing.


Love the scale down Superfrog. Keep at it.
Can't wait to see more pics.

Too bad Konkey Dong's no longer around. Creepy build, yes, but an excellent Nintendo bartop. It WAS LCD though...

I would, but the head Konkey Donger himself, Pinball Jim, deleted all his posts and simply disappeared. He basically built a Donkey Kong bartop using the top half of a DK cabinet. It came out really nice, except that the theme was somewhat....rapey.

I thought the proper title for PBJ was the King of Dong.   :lol

Not to be confused with the King of Kong.   ;D

Here are a few Nintendo Bartops

These guys did a great job!

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,122793.msg1310811.html#msg1310811

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,94311.msg992012.html#msg992012

And there are the three that I made a few years back...

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,85596.0.html

Hope these help.  They were a blast to build and even more fun to play!

It's a combination of the 2 side concepts.

In my spare time this week, I have one side done.
Compares to my MameCade, it's a BEAST    >:D

I love the shape already    8)

I thought about doing a nes bartop with a playchoice 10 control panel. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

Looking on the last picture, we can easily compare the width of a LCD Weecade design to a Nintendo themed bartop...
I'm amazed that both have almost the same footprint.

I was wondering that what really counts is the table space, or even a stand space. And the footprint is the most important measure here...

Damn... I still couldn't decide the design of my first cab: if I go to a ultra slim full height, or a bartop vertical weecade or a nintendo or galaga themed bartop...

BTW, congratulations for your design...

Thanks,

I made a copy of the Verticade,  I like that more than a weecade... And there are plenty of weecades already  ;)
My first build was a 15inch Verticade, than a 19inch Verticade and now the nintendo Because I like the shapes of it.

So go for the shapes you like the most and size depends on whats type of monitor you gonna use.

Good luck

Small update,
I didn't had the right size for my router, so I had to jigsaw the second side and after sandpaper a lot ( I'm very accurate  :angel: )It was finally done.
I had a lot in mind for today, but it was more time consuming then I had planned.

Thanks,

Me to, I like the cab and the game. First time played the game on a Philips videopac.
2 blocks of white sprites Where popeye an 2 big green sprites Where brutus ( BLUTO I think its in us )

I feel always bad that popeye cabs transform into donkey kongs... That's why I do a popeye ;)

Here a picture of the stunning graphics back in the days where I had to deal with, but what a great fun and gameplay .
