Okay, I've got two new scratch build ideas coming that Id like to finish before summer 2017. Life needs to settle down right now...and its pretty ambitious for me, but Id really like to see them come to fruition. I'm just going to put both builds in one thread, to save myself and this board trouble.
Originally, I was going to just focus on DT this upcoming year....but 34K and I were talking the other night over a Robotron project we are working on and he really got me excited about the Mega Man idea. Also, for the last few months I've been messaging with BYOAC Member Sokignano about the concept, and his enthusuiam and ideas for his own Mega Man project. I figured aid give it a shot as well.
First off, I know Mega Man and Duck Takes are Capcom games....and not Nintendo created games. However, I don't have very many memories of NES a growing up....but DT and MM were definitely a part of what I do have. Those games, plus LOZ, Mario Brothers series, and Rush'n'attack were really the only games I remember playing a lot. So....Duck Tales and Mega Man will be going in custom Nintendo cabinets.
Not sure what I'm doing to run the games. I have the colors and designs in my head already. I have already produced a roughed out speaker grill for Duck Tales. It's is a really far off departures from the Niintendo slotted speaker style....but I like it....plus I think it'll be fun. I started cutting wood for the speaker grill for Mega Man today....but have not settled on a design, I would love to hear concepts for ideas for the speaker grill. Sokignano and I thought maybe a Mega Man helmet? I could so the standard Nintendo 7 slot....but that's kinda boring.
Both cabs will recieve custom paint...and I have a pretty solid idea for art for both of them....but as all works in progress goes...I'm sure it'll evolve.
So here we go.....hope these don't take 18 months! Atleast I have the winter to design the artwork.
