The 2001FP uses an external  power brick so you could move that bit to the bottom of the case.

I'm a little concerned that a case meant to hold something like a 5-15 LBS load may not hold this build very well. You may need to add straps or something.   

So would you know if the 2001FP is positively lighter than the 2007FP? I need to make a decision soon on which monitor to get and I can´t decide because I´m missing the 2001FP real specs in weight and depth. I asked like a dozen of ebay sellers that are selling it and everybody gave me different specs, I think most of them are ballparking them.

I'm not a huge 4 player control panel fan so when I first saw this, I was like "whatever"
but this thing is freakin' cool.
nice attention to detail too

Any suggestions on 20" 4:3 very light monitors with good angle viewing and response time?

JDFan has a 2001FP you may want to PM him. I'm in Tanzania and my 2007FP is in the US but I'll ask my mom to put it on a scale. I'd think the 2001FP screen would be lighter as the power supply is in a brick out side the monitor. But thats just my best guess.

According to the Dell PDF file HERE ( http://www.dell.com/downloads/emea/products/snp/UltraSharp%202007FP_EN.pdf )
the 2007FP weighs in at 6.9Kg (15.9 Lbs.) without the stand

And Hardware canucks ( http://techwiki.hardwarecanucks.com/product/1MzEyNTUzNzk/Dell-2001FP-LCD/ )
lists the 2001FP at Monitor Flat panel only (VESA Mode) 5.45Kg (12.0 lb)

So the 2001FP is slightly lighter but that does not include the AC adapter that you would need to find space for also which they also list as ( Power Supply Brick 0.47Kg (1.03 lb))

Hey Guys, after more than half a year being really busy and traveling a lot for work I have been working on the project again. I got a FP2001 monitor and as you can see in the pictures, the thing is coming up all right.

Just one thing... the top lid weights 13kg (29lbs) in total with everything it needs to have on it and the bottom lid with all the components around 17.3kg (38lbs). I´m afraid the monitor weight and the gameplay shaking might tip the thing over and it might fall backwards.

I feel dumb for asking this, but has any of you have any idea or mathematic formula to calculate how much does the base has to weight in order for the top lid not to tip back? The angle of the top lid when open is around 95-100 degrees.

Imagine a Nintendo 3DS (angle of top lid is different though), how much force (weight) does the base has to have for it no to fall backwards?

Thanks! I will do my best to finish this sooner than later.

Why not just go with a laptop screen, like the one in the Alienware 18 r1 ? That is an 18.4" screen... while smaller then the one you had planned, is much lighter. Or are you just planning on tearing apart the dell screen from the housing? Guess I missed that part... But still SWEET project.

Getting there... Picture 50 refers to a counterweight of 4kg we did to avoid the case falling back. Maybe it was not needed. Case is super sturdy when being open, does not even shake...

Almost there... Math will save you.

These are the scribblings of a couple of friends... an architect and a mathematician, trying to help me figure it out if once assembled the thing would not fall backwards... I was very nervous.

What do you think? The pictures at the bottom show how the power cable and a small bag with the joysticks and dust washers inside, will be secured in place with industrial Velcro to the bottom of the top lid. This way, you can transport everything inside the case without pieces moving inside. Gotta keep that monitor safe.

Still a lot of programming to do with hyperspin and rocket launcher... and still need to wait for an L shaped power cable adapter from china in like 40 days to be able to juice up the speakers.

But it is getting there...

Let´s do a survey, should I put all the arcade games stickers as stamps for a traveling suitcase? Or would it end up looking too tacky?

Like these?

very impressive.  Personally, i'd skip the stickers, i like the clean look.

i have no need for something like this at all, but you've made me want to build one (i'm not going to, but i want to)

good job :applaud: :applaud: :applaud:

+1 on no stickers. It looks to nice as is.  :cheers:

I'm a little concerned a box design probably under 20 LBS of equipment is going to holdup to the 77LBS.

What's the total what's the weight of this build. I'm a little concerned a box design probably under 20 pounds of equipment is going to holdup.

If that 35.45k scale readout is the total weight, he's looking at ~78 lbs of "portable" arcade goodness ;)

Hey there, thanks for the comments. No stickers then :D

The only added weight I put on it was a 4.3kg tube on the front. To avoid 4 players furious drunken gaming making the case flip back. The top lid weights 13kg alone. The bottom one without added weight around 17.3kg.

I put some industrial velcro strips at the bottom, so I can use a heavy duty keyboard base for it. You can see the sanding of the case for the velcro stripes in pic 46.jpg

I think the case does not need the additional 4.3kg, but I´m leaving it there just in case. It should weight around 31.2kg at its minimum using these same components.

Case seems sturdy enough, does not give away any hints of being falling apart. If it does in the future, I´ll let you know.

Cheers!  :)

Yes but, that case was probably designed for a bow that weights 5 LBS with probably that much weight in equipment so (10-12 LBS). Just saying that he may want to be careful walking around with his very nice build.

Btw, the 2001FP is beautiful in every angle. Colors are vivid and has no player visibility issues. It was the correct choice!

The struts do not interfere the line of sight neither.

Height may be an issue, since you need to hunch if it sits too low. I recommend a table 90cm in height. It seems the most comfortable for me. I´m 5´9".

 ???

Hey there guys. I find myself wondering if you could provide me with some help.

I'm trying to get MAME to run with scanlines at 1600x1200 res on the dell 2011FP. But all the scanlines options appear too small. I tried one called triad3sl.png too and that actually looked bigger and more like the correct size but it makes the image less brighter and the colors less saturated

Scanlines75Dx4.png and equivalents appear too small too.

4:3 Monitors at 1600x1200 users: What Scanlines Effect do you use? (No scanlines generators since I'm using HDMI to connect to the monitor, nor HLSL since the MB would not be able to handle it)

Thanks!

I would assume that's because the joysticks are not angled.
