Forgive the potato quality, but here's a pic of a system I just completed for a customer:



I took some pics with the system running and all the LED's working, but the marquee only showed white in the photos. Bummer. My Nikon was out of batteries. Great timing.

He just picked it up, and is super-stoked about it. It's a gift for his employers, and after he had placed the order, they were at a local bar with a small bartop and commented, "Man, I wish we had one of these!" Suffice to say, my customer was happy that he already had this gift in the works.

:D

Got it! Thanks!

Just some quick eye candy for you all. What's been keeping me busy lately...





Got a number of new products in the works, and should be presenting some prototypes in the next week or so. Can't wait to get back to producing the new stuff! Stay tuned!

Hi Rick -

Really love your work and was wondering if you have any interest in adding a "slimline" cabinet to your offering:



http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=89163.0

I really love the design and as you can see the author hasn't been active.  I've built my full size cabinet from help here 15 years ago and now I'm thinking these slim cabinets would be perfect.  I also remember all the work the build was for the "carpentry challenged" like myself, so having a kit option would be so awesome.

If someone else is doing this type of kit already, please let me know! 

Thanks!

I've always loved this cabinet configuration. I am presently working on a cabinet similar to ChanceKJ's recent work, and do have plans to introduce a slim design shortly as well. I do post everything new here, but you can also subscribe on my website for the latest info first!

Thanks Rick....I signed up for the newsletter as well.  Look forward to seeing what you come up with.  I think what I like best is the shallow design that can be attached to the wall, so hopefully you'll have that option...

No sir. All of our renders were created in blue, simply to meet the colour scheme of the website. I'm reconsidering the colours, in favour of a 'wood-grain' render, just to stave off confusion in the future.

  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
I am interested in a Cubic.  I sent you an email through your site but didn't get a response.  I had a few question before ordering.

1. I am interested in the Cubic 20" but with the 2P CP like you did for Michael Boutinís cabinet that you have on the website's gallery, but I would go with the curved ergo layout. Would that be ok?

2. Can the front edge of the CP be straight instead of curved.  I think it would look better, but not a big deal if not.

3. On your site it says to choose materials but, but I see no option for that.  I was hoping you offered a white or even black melamine so that I wouldn't have to paint it. I would prefer white because I plan I going with chrome t-molding and chrome button rings.

4. Is the Control Panel cut out for Sanwa JLF joystick, and what buttons can I use?

5. Are the prices shown on your site Canadian?

My build will be as follows:
Monitor 19" 5:4 HP LP1965 S-MVA Panel
Motherboard: Abit P35-E
CPU: Intel Q6600 QuadCore OCed to 3.0Ghz
Ram: 4gb DDR2 800 (The max this board can handle)
Videl: 8400 GS (might upgrade it to GTX 750ti)
PSU: Antec EarthWatts 380w
Amp: probaly some Lapei 2ch amp which is what many people seem to be using
Speakers: Some cheap 2-way 4" car speakers


The cabinet theme will be White with chrome accents (t-molding, button rings, ...).  Player one will be Blue with a clear blue ball top and blue led lit buttons with the lightest switches.  Player two will be the same but in green.  I will also get the blue and green aluminum bat tops from Paradise Arcade in case I want to switch them out.  And to finish the look I will get the ggg coin drop buttons.

Thanks for the message. I'd like to apologize - it's been really busy since before Christmas, and I've also been having some trouble receiving some emails since I changed web hosts as well. I am looking into it, and hope to have everything back up and running properly, as soon as possible.

1. I am interested in the Cubic 20" but with the 2P CP like you did for Michael Boutinís cabinet that you have on the website's gallery, but I would go with the curved ergo layout. Would that be ok?

That's absolutely no problem. I have a 20" two player template available, and can create any custom design you may wish to have.

2. Can the front edge of the CP be straight instead of curved.  I think it would look better, but not a big deal if not.

I can do that, no problem.

3. On your site it says to choose materials but, but I see no option for that.  I was hoping you offered a white or even black melamine so that I wouldn't have to paint it. I would prefer white because I plan I going with chrome t-molding and chrome button rings.

At present, we do not offer melamine-covered particle board as an available option. We have had limited success cutting it on our CNC, as it will leave a minimal number of 'chips' on the wood on the finished edges. We have made the appropriate changes to the machine configuration, used the proper (and expensive) bit for dual-sided melamine wood, and unfortunately, I believe that the poor quality of wood supply may be a factor. I have attempted to source better wood, melamine covered MDF with a thicker melamine coating, and have found a local supplier, however, they cannot deliver to my location due to the fact that I do not have a dock-level receiving bay, and I don't have a vehicle which could be used for picking up.

4. Is the Control Panel cut out for Sanwa JLF joystick, and what buttons can I use?

I can definitely cut the pockets in the control panel for the shorter-throw joysticks. As for buttons, I cut a 1.15625" hole for joysticks and buttons, which will accommodate HAPP-compatible and other standard button sizes.

5. Are the prices shown on your site Canadian?

Absolutely. Now, and forever. :)

I too sent an email last week and didn't get a response--so here's another shout out--maybe he's on vacation or something and forgot to update the website or set up his out of office reply  :dunno

I do apologize, again, for the lack of timely communication in the past few weeks. I am going to try and find any missing emails that I haven't yet replied to, but if you haven't received a response from me shortly, if you don't mind, could you please PM me your email address so I can search for anything that may be amiss? I'd really appreciate it, if so.

As it is right now, I'm on my way out for a bit of minor surgery. (To add insult to injury, on my hand, no less. Yay.) I will be back later today, and hopefully, will get the majority of these communication issues cleared out then.

Normally, it's a LOT quicker than it has been. I apologize for the delay. I'm in the process of packing your order right now for shipment, and will send over tracking details via email. (I've also sent you an email detailing this as well.)

Thank you for your patience!

Thanks Rick.  No worries, I'm in no rush.

Hi all,

It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to post on the forums, but we've been really busy preparing for a huge change, and I am excited to post here...

The Arcade Shop at Gameroom Designs is MOVING!

We are presently moving the entire operation to a commercial space, where we will be better suited to provide our customers with high-quality arcade systems, kits and parts. (For those who are local to us, don't worry - we're planning on remaining in the Durham Region, which is easily accessible within the GTA.)

Our plans for the new location are underway. We're going to have a showroom, including fully-functional models of every system we sell, as well as a huge inventory of in-stock parts, so that orders can be shipped within 24 hours. We're also planning on adding two additional CNC machines, to reduce the wait time on cut orders, and have a professional paint booth for finishing fully built systems.

We're just cutting the final sheet on our CNC today, to fulfill current orders, and then I'll be disassembling, and transferring the machine to storage until our new space is ready.

Once we're setup in the new space, we're going to have an open house, and hope to see some of you there!

Thanks again for all of the support you've shown us over the past few years!

Rick

LOL. My wife thought that was hilarious.

We are actually selling our house and moving into a rental property, and using the equity to invest in the company, as the housing market is really great right now. It is, however, very, VERY exciting to not have the machine running all day within the house.
