$60 is $60 and those reptile habitats donít buy themselves.

I'm pretty sure every single post member in this thread is just Chance creating new accounts on different computers to get his post count up for this thread.   ;D

...Uh I mean Great build Chance!  I am building a Star Wars cab and I come here for inspiration.

Do any of you knobs even read the thread?

Could it be the originator of said thread has taken to creating user accounts to continuously bump this 5 alarm dumpster fire and thereby perpetuate the madness?

 :bump

Or are we approaching near full devolution of the species?!

Yeah.  I came to the conclusion that Chance is bumping his own thread last year.

The only way to find out what is going on is to create a new account and ask for the plans.  You'll never know which one is me. :)

Gil quit taking my ideas that I'm too lazy to implement.

Itís funny you say that - a longtime member who hadnít been around for a while PMed me two weeks ago before all the fun just to say ĎďĎSup?Ē and basically stated as an aside that he thought Chance was bumping this thread. I LOLed and didnít think anything of it myself. I guess heís not the only one, huh?

Yeah I actually just stumbled on that thread about a week ago and was thinking wow Chance put in a lot of effort to get all those measurements for the community.  Now he deleted the only useful content he added to the forum...  I reported the thread just to point out its not worthy of being a pinned one anymore.

:lol :lol :lol :lol Good riddance. Iíve been trying to get this coward to leave the forum for years. In the end, it took a group effort to call out this --cream-filled twinkie-- for who he is. He knew what he was doing was scummy, and he couldnít even defend himself.

Today is a good day.

Remember that time he blasted us on Instagram for giving hard critiques on that nasa build? Because we called out his broken aircraft carrier design. Threatening that he snitched us out to the mods because he didnít like the difference of opinions.

The irony of him telling others what is in the spirit of BYOAC. Like being a scumbag and leeching off the community for personal gain is in the spirit of things.







The guy still never got it. While that shape looks (subjectively) cool, itís functionality is flawed. Bad positioning to p3 and p4.
Chance still couldnít really figure out that arcade cabs need to be part form and part function. Not just bling bling.
But then again, he is a poseur.

It really does look cool especially if you haven't really played any cabinets before (under the age of 30). 

I've noticed that 99% of people who aren't into arcade cabinets but like video games want 1 cabinet that plays everything under the sun and lights up like a christmas tree.  They will never build a second one or notice a problem with an 8-way and Pac-Man and they must think there's nothing better than a good 40 hour session of Final Fantasy VI while standing up (because they have to have literally every game available at a moment's notice).  Oh, and it has to be 4 players for the 1 time a year everyone gets drunk and plays TMNT for 20 minutes - but also eff P3 and P4, they get angled controls and a horrible view. 

This build is absolutely perfect for those people which is why it gets so much attention.  Or maybe looks can be deceiving?  I've never actually tried it.

You nailed it.
It has a pile of shiny baubles and bits that scratch all the itches of the uneducated.
For those who don't want to work at it... there it is.

In so many instances I've watched superior marketing and salesmanship make an inferior product outsell the real deal.
What's that watermelon doing there?

I was wondering if he figured out a way to script changing 3228 posts but based on a few timestamp samples he spent at least 4 hours doing it.

Really just goes to show what kind of person Chance is.

After getting called out, he didn't even have the balls to respond, explain, or even apologize, just take his ball and go home. This guy thinks he's above the community, after all the help that people gave him to get him to where he is today.

He turned this forum into his own promotional tool to shill his youtube channel, or rip-off noobs. Really despicable behavior.

I hope Saint restores at least the Nintendo base thread, as a tribute showing that information that we share here in the community is not yours to own and dictate to others. It's for everyone to use freely.  THAT, is the spirit of BYOAC.

I liked Tully.
I only had a brief communication with him on a bomberman cabinet he was working on so i didn't know him as well as the others.
I think i have a good idea why he left but I'm not 100% sure.
I think he was the one who did the Game of Thrones gauntlet built made of carved foam.
but I could be wrong.
I was new to the forum back then.
it was next level.
