Tempest-ish Spinner Project
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:49:08 pm »
Got the Warlords finished to the point of waiting on art.  Was so impressed with the Turbo Twist 2 spinner tests I figured it would be a good time to build a Tempest-esque shell.

Gonna try a 15inch lcd mounted horizontally this time which makes the whole cab less than 17in wide.

I'm in Iowa so you get X amount of time in an unheated garage before it gets too cold.  :)

Going the distance!

Mounted horizontally? I did a Tempest Bartop with a 17" vertically mounted LCD. It was one of my favorites. I think it had a 15" width. Good luck with yours. Mine is in my signature if you want to see how I did the CP. That was the only real tricky part.

cool. i will check it out. thank you.  :)

i mostly wanted Atari Avalanche on it which is a horizontal game.
Tempest looks and plays adequately for my needs from it, and it is hard to predict what game I might run across in the future.  Always tinkering.
