When I got my buttons from pa, he didnt have the black centers. So I bought 50 black buttons from x-arcade. Used the extra nuts to keep them from bleeding.

Side note: Rit Dye test number two was a failure. Not only did the parts fail to change colour in the boiling water. the bolts embedded in the standoffs expanded in the heat of the boiling water and cracked the plastic. The insulator for the Quick disconnect had no change from the brown cloudy colour it was after the last attempt.

Meh.  :)

Brian, i just spent the better part of an hour trying to find your build thread. you should add it to your signature.

(Hey! 4 pages, and not a single speck of sawdust action!)
If I knew how I would :-[

This sounds familiar . . . maybe because of this old PM.  :lol

Brian,

Just noticed that your sig pic isn't linked to your build.

Doing so would allow people to click on the pic to open your build thread.

If you want to add that feature, go into your profile and select Modify Profile - Update Profile.

In the Signature block, add the part in red:

(url=http://build thread here](img]http://Picture link(/img](/url]

Substitute [ for ( and insert link for your build thread.   :cheers:

I should edit my old thread or start a new one. I have taken out my clear buttons, the lcd and changed my cp. Now I have a vertical 27" crt and all black buttons.

Dont you people sleep?
When I'm not looking up old PMs or drawing diagrams.  :P

See, i was nice and collected all the code he needed...  :P
You're a gentleman and a scholar, sir.  :cheers:

Scott, any input on the wiring up of that potentiometer?
Sorry, didn't look too close at that since Neph was helping you with it.

Not sure about the schematic equivalent/pinout of your particular double-gang pot and diagram -- it doesn't quite make sense to me. :dunno

Looking at the pics again it looks like it goes audio source > headphone jack > potentiometer > speakers.
Based on that, the schematic should look something like this.


Scott

EDIT: Forgot to include the ground for the headphone jack.

All people are going to care about in the end, bro, is if it can play Galaga.  :cheers:










Good job so far. I like the wiring on the coin lights.

I've been playing with potentiometers with my Jukebox, trying to find the right one. I've used a 100k and a 500k, but still am not 100% happy with the volume adjustment. I have a 10k one that should be here today or tomorrow, and I'll try that.

Don't forget that for audio control you need a logarithmic potentiometer.

Trust me, I know that. I'm just trying to find the one that I think works best. Maybe I need to invest in wooden knobs.

Dude, hammered black.  The only way to go.  Right Maximus?  :P
