Grounds 4 Divorce
« on: December 11, 2013, 11:32:05 am »
My first build is finally complete after 9 loooonng months  :applaud:

Thanks to Griffindodd/Maximus for inspiring me with his awesome Marvel v Capcom: Revolution cab, also to all you talented guys here and over on the HyperSpin forums (especially Djvj) that have helped me along the way.

Very slick finish  :applaud:

What frontend are you using for the Pinball and arcade games?
I'm testing HyperPin and looks good, but it can't play mame games on it.

Is running HyperSpin ( 2screen setup) the pinball the same as HyperPin or is that just for Desktop tables and HyperPin for cabinet tables?

I'm using Hyperspin as my frontend and I have Hyperpin launching from inside it (Via PC games wheel)

Very nice looking, and possibly the best name for an arcade cabinet ever.  Well done!

So once again, we find that evil of the past seeps into the present like salad dressing through cheap wax paper, mixing memory and desire.

Thanks :)
Yes the lower monitor rotates, I also have dual aimtraks (not in the pics) which are for use with the upper monitor. At the moment the guns are resting on top of the cab when not in use, need to sort a better storage solution.

Very nice build.   Be sure to have it considered for a 2013 UCA award.

Not sure it's good enough to join the elite but sure it'd be fantastic to get recognition for my blood, sweat and tears :)
How do I nominate my cab?

Intel i3-2100 sandybridge
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650
8 gb ram
1tb hdd

I'd recommend a better processor tbh, that seems to be a bottle neck on my setup.

The 2012 UCA Nomination thread is here for anyone wanting to review last year's rules.

I assume the rules for this year's UCA will be very similar, so start reviewing the builds of 2013 to see which ones deserve recognition.

The beauty of the UCA is that you can't nom your own, that aside this is a great homage.

I was going to say that in my earlier post, but I don't see where the 2012 rules address someone nominating/seconding their own build.

Might be wise to clarify this in the 2013 rules.   :dunno

Always glad to assist as others have assisted me -- pay it forward.   :cheers:

EDIT: Found the "can't nom your own" reference in reply #8 of the 2012 thread.

Really love the look of this cab! Im in the planning stages of making my own and I really like your set up of being able to do pinball and arcade as well.

What are you using as your monitor on the horizontal? Are the bezels included in the output from the program and you just set them up?

Really awesome job!
