The good news is that you already have spousal approval -- keep her happy and saying, "You Shook Me" and "I Can't Quit You Baby" rather than, "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You".

Hopefully you can come up with a good sideart theme so you don't leave a barren Black Mountain Side on your cab.

Just keep your spirits up no matter How Many More Times you have to revise your plans.

There will be Good Times Bad Times, but Your Time is Gonna Come unless there is a Communication Breakdown that leaves you so Dazed and Confused that you can't finish the build.

For the light in the drawer, consider using a roller microswitch that engages with the back right or back left side.

Design steps:

I did  feel spaced out this morning.  I don't remember typing my last post on this thread.  So AJ is capable of possession.  So there's that.   :D

That CP shape is known affectionately in some circles as 'The Aircraft Carrier'.

LOL, yeah, but when you have a 32" LCD, there's a lot of real-estate to cover.  :bump

-IL Concave RGB/LED buttons (black tops, lit rings) (As seen on the Two-Headed Beast)
-Molex QD on all LED harnesses (Also thanks to Nephasth (you bastard, thanks for the expensive ideas... ;) )

Glad the Beast can still be a source of inspiration! I can help you out with lowering the cost on the Molex parts. PM coming your way. :cheers:

Now, ethical question: Looking at all these nice bartops that are being CnC'd is it a sin if i forgo most of the standard fabrication of the cab and have the technical bits plotted out on a local woodworkers CnC?

If you have the resources... Use them!

You might want to check with HaRuMaN on that aircraft carrier. I think he might be able to help.

No biggie -- just let Saint know that you like it, but it would be so much better if we could get the logins working again so we could update the contents.   >:D

It's almost time for another monthly bump over in the Wiki Discussion sub-forum.   ;D

I came here to post this.  Simple is always better, IMO.  It's OK to not be able to play every single game known to man.  That's why you build cab #2!

I am super jealous of the spouse approval.  Someone should write a wiki on how that happens.  I'm almost there but I think I'm missing a key piece of information.

1.  Come up with awesome idea to build arcade cabinet
2.  Tell wife
3.  ???
4.  Everyone is happy!

I've just found that more buttons leads to more confusion - the less clutter on a CP the more people seem to enjoy it.  My first cabinet tried to "do everything" and it led to 500 questions every time I had people over to play.  My DK gets played a ton more and no one really ever asks me how it works other than how to switch games.  Of course, it only has a 4-way and one action button so it's not that tough to figure out but still.  The DK has about 30 games and the other cab had about 300 so you would think that the cab with more games would be played more but it just didn't (so I got rid of it).  I don't know - there's no right answer but I was just sharing my own experience.

Most of us that are "Anti-button evangelists" speak from practial experience.

What kind of coin door are you looking for? I have a brand new one I don't need that I was thinking of offering for sale.

If Yotsuya doesn't have the kind of door you're looking for, check out Divemaster's site here.

The second option on that page matches with the link you posted -- PM Divemaster127 if you want to confirm.

Since this is bigger than a flat rate box, I'd definitely suggest that you not order direct from Happ.
