Hey Chance!

Woow! Awesome build with real big love for the detail.

I've already downloaded the 2.0 - file from your earlier posts in this thread. This will be a big help for building my own one.

I'm not sure which additional information is in the "plans" everyone keeps asking. But if there are more infos inside it would be great to get them.

very thankful for your thread!

This build is FANTASTIC!!

I just received spousal approval myself.. "Honey, the kids will love it".. and have started doing research. It's going to take some time  :)

Would you be willing to share the plans that others have asked about?

I joined the forum just so I could compliment your build and ask for plans (can't PM yet as I'm too new). I'm planning on building something very similar with my son and have only recently realized what a tall order that is. Your plans would go a long way towards helping. Of note, I'm planning on making the cab somewhat modular so it can be taken apart and moved more easily. I'm happy to send back my adjustments if you're interested. I've got a homemade CNC, so I plan on doing everything up as vector files.

Hey Chance..... Im probably one of many who copied your design and built a Mortal Kombat themed cab in 2015 but cheaped out on the buttons and used single color LED buttons originally.

Well my job closed because of this stupid covid crap and so have a bunch of time on my hands at the moment and I am building a new PC for the cab and doing a facelift on it and just ordered Ultimarc rgb buttons and 2x ledpac64's......

 Anyway, I originally had led lit balltops on my sanwa jlf's but decided to replace the balltops with white bat tops and stiffer springs and am thinking about just lighting the joystick shaft holes like you did. I ordered clear dust covers and rgb LED's with pigtails and connectors already installed, they will plug right into the pac64's and plan on just doing what you did with acrylic or polycarbonate tubing but have a question.....

Do you think a single RGB led would illuminate the clear tubing piece good enough if i scuffed the tubing up good to make it diffuse? I think you ended up using 2 per hole but I think you did some testing with a single rgb led at one point and wondered if you thought a single put out enough light to look decent?

I also thought about just angling a single rgb led up at the dust cover and just sanding the bottom of the dust covers to make them opaque/diffused, did you ever try that?

Thanks! :cheers:

Yes, I definitely did some testing, but it wasn't on the count of the LED's in the stick, It was pretty much planned from Day 1 that I was going to have a pair on each stick and have them light from the left and right sides. Not really sure why I made that decision, just did. I'm sure you could use one LED, but I'd recommend positioning it between the player and the shaft of the stick, pointing away from the player towards the stick, and not from "above" pointing back at the player.  I'd also recommend scuffing up the plexi tube to help defuse the light better.

I never did try scuffing the dust washers, as I had planned for them to have the player number on each laser etched into them, plus I wanted to see down into the hole, and have a good amount of light come up and hit the smoke ball tops.


Ok, Ill have to do some testing. I think today im going to pull the whole control panel off and try to get my cab upstairs in my room  :dizzy: Im tired of it being used as an intable in the living room lol.

thanks for the quick reply!

Hi Chance, your project is awesome. The detail is incredible and I really like that it doesn't take up an insane amount of space. I've built a 2-player cabinet which easily fits through a standard doorway and looking to do a 4-player with removable control panel that will also be relatively easy to move.

I just created an account so can't DM, yet. Are you able share the plans via DM?

Thanks a bunch.

Hey! I've been following your gallery and Deez's updates on Reddit. I'm hoping to find the control panel plans if possible! Everything else has been amazing and really got me going. Just looking at everything has been inspiring and really got me wanting to do the wiring (my favorite part) and learning the woodworking as I go!

My last question is I have a 47" TV that has been retired, would this work for that as well or would your recommend sticking to 32" to reduce bezel space?

Thanks again, this is truly fantastic work!

Been a lurker following and loving this thread and it's development.  The spousal approval has just been given after she finally got to see this thread, so I joined up to reply.  I'd love to give this a crack myself.  MayI also join the long list of PM's for the plans? 
Thanks again!

Hi Chance!
Awesome job - this 4 player cabinet is incredibly impressive!!!
This spring once the snow melts I will be starting on my journey to build my first cabinet which has always been a dream of mine - and with your permission I would like to base it on yours, as the shape and size is exactly what Iím looking for!
As I seem to be unable to send PMs yet, as a new user, would you be so kind as to PM me your plans which would greatly help in my voyage?

The main thing that would help would be the dimensions of the wood including shelves and control panel, if possible!

Thanks!!

Love the build.  Attention to detail was great and as someone is interested in building a 4 play cab, I learned a lot going this thread.  Would appreciate the plans if possible.

Why don't you just post the plans in the thread?

Then people don't have to prostrate in front of you to get them...or is that the idea?

Then no one would bump the thread and this well crafted poorly designed cabinet would finally disappear into the ether.
If you're replying to a troll you are part of the problem.
I also need to follow this advice. Ignore or report, don't reply.

So wait, let me get this straight: the dude comes to this forum, asks for help/tips/tricks/advice from the community here. Promises to "give back" to the forum... by charging people for the plans that he got help to make?

That is some scumb-bag stuff right there. 

Well, I hope you'll all enjoy the horrible mess that i'm about to make. Hopefully i'll be able to get some tips and tricks along the way and contribute back to this place at least something since i've received so much great advice just reading about your builds thus far. Well, that and in hopes you'll bring solutions to me instead of me having to spend hours more using the search function on the site! ;D
