Megaman 2 player Bartop with trackball and spinner!
« on: March 05, 2017, 11:42:44 pm »
This is a DIY kit using 3/4 melamine with a custom control panel using an Ipac2.  Using 18" long led strip for the marquee.  Trackball glows a light blue with a green trim around it.  Spinner is a Spintrak and trackball is a 2" ball from holland computers originally for a 60 in 1 jamma board.  Powering the speakers im using a PIE audio amp and the speakers are just regular 8ohm.  A BIG shout out to Retroactivearcade.ca for all the hard work, parts and building of the machine.

I actually was going to paint the "grills" but everyone said it looked better that way.  I still may though.  As for the PC it's an I3 2120 (i think), 8gigs ram, 512Gb ssd, Nvidia 750Ti and windows 7 pro.  Sticks and buttons are sanwa with silencers.

Paint the grills. Whoever told you exposed particle board looks good did you a favor. You can now safely disregard any advice they give you in the future on any subject.

How is that little trackball? Do you think it could be mounted in a metal panel? Does it work well? I might want to use that model in a future bartop project.

This looks cool. Surprised you could fit all those controls on a bartop. Doesn't look too crowded either. Nice job.

I think I'll paint them this weekend. The trackball itself is 2"amd the whole thing is under  4" square.  It was cnc'd out to fit snug with 2 small bolts. It works great!!

You did all that work to make it look good. Painting the grills will make it look complete. :cheers:
