That turned out really nice.  The drawer for accessories is a nice touch.

Iím not usually a fan of front drawers, but you pulled it off nice and it serves the right purpose. Very nice cabinet! Impressive... most impressive.

I doubted about the drawer for a long time, but I'm really glad I've included it since me and my kid use the controllers and light guns a lot and it's a good storage solution this way.

Like it. Drawer works well - good gun stash.

Where did you buy that foot pedal for games like Time Crisis; and does it plug into mic input or is it usb? Thanks

I bought the following things from arcadeworld.uk and arcadewinkel.nl (seller depending on price & availability):

- Coin door with two mechs
- 2x Sanwa ball top joystick
- player 1 and 2 startbuttons
- black admin buttons
- blue illuminated action buttons
- red illuminated action buttons
- i-pac 2 with wiring
- red T molding
- router T molding cutting bit
- 28 mm drill for button holes
- lock for the service door

I haven't got a definitive control panel layout yet, but I think I will go with eight action buttons for each player in case I might hookup my Xbox360 or PS4 in the future.


Did you purchase the coin door from Arcadeworld.co.uk? That was pretty expensive right? Looking for a nice coin door but 120 pounds + shipping from UK is quite a lot compared to the ones from Arcadewinkel.nl (who unfortunately have yellow buttons).
Nevermind, I just ordered a coin door from arcadeshop.de. :)

This is the pedal I bought, the Acorn FP-1, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acorn-FP-1-MIDI-Foot-Switch/dp/B003ZTV7B4

I simply cut of the jack connector and connected the wires to my button encoder/i-pac.

I bought the coin door with mech from arcadewinkel.nl. At that time it had the best price and availability compared to the other shops.

Hmm, it seems they only have the ones with the yellow return coin buttons (and out of stock).  Eventually the one from Arcadeshop.de is complete and with shipping only 5 euros more expensive.
