It cant be dead it was close to being finished... sure the software side seemed like it was just starting but he had all the physical stuff done.  :dunno

Yeah, but his last update was over a year ago.  It looked like his hardware was near completion, and SW shouldn't take more than a couple weeks to get a partial-runner.  At first I was, "No effin' way", then it was like, "damn, he might do it", and then it was, "I had a heart attack and died, see ya".

Damn. Monolith is like the cab equivalent of Matthew Smith and Sid Barratt.

Is there a repository of portrait mode vertical bezels as shown in the Streetfighter image posted on page 1 of the thread?

I've recently discovered the Full Single Screen pinballs, and was early in the process of building a pinball cabinet, but am tempted to just go with a new vertical option.

hey guys, I thought the interest was long gone on this build. it has been ages since I updated. I was going to finish it off quietly and then do a final update. Funny thing is I just gave a talk about this build at work as part of a presentation on the maker community.

so to update on the current status: since my last update post, I moved 3 times, which sucked. I hate moving lol. also travelled overseas a few times. things are more settled now and the arcade is, for the most part, assembled but without the electronics. Now seems like a great time to finish off this build. I'm really glad I designed the cab to be pulled apart in sections because it helped a lot when moving. all my crimping tools and supplies arrived as well.

On a side note, I also bought some 3d printers and a laser cutter to add to my arsenal of tools, and I spent some time learning and making things with them which was a fun distraction. One idea I messed around with was a coin sorting tool.

Thanks for the support guys. it really is unexpected. This is a really farout there build.

Jan is still a busy time for me (its summer here in Aus) so I'm hoping I can knock it out in Feb.
I'm still trying to decide how I'm going to create the harnesses for easy disconnect when moving or repairing, and ideas?
If I need to order things from china it will take about a month to get here. in the meantime, I can get all the crimping etc done

"Aus" as in Australia? Christ - considering that it is made from a rainforrest's worth of timber - I'm surprised it hasn't caught fire yet.

If there is one thing I have learned from the Aussie folk, is that they're a little more thick skinned than most and know how to take and make a joke. That said, my heart goes out to them all... Beauty country and a damn shame to see happening to good folk, much less anyone else.

Also glad to see this thread come back to life... Made my week!
