Superman Cab
« on: April 02, 2018, 10:11:54 am »
Im just showing off my Custom Mame cab. Im a huge superman fan so i recreated the 1988 superman arcade cab. Nothing is original. I built it all from the ground up. I've been dying for somewhere to post it online so i hope people here can appreciate it! Its my first ( and likely last...)

Im a new member but I've come here for guidance over the past 15 months of this project....(i never have freetime. Lol)

Comments/critiques welcome!

That looks great. I love the bright colors you used.  :applaud:

I actually like that game and have thought about building a similar cab. 

It really needs a coin door though.

End result looks great, looks like a conversion not a ground up build.

Do you have any "in progress" pictures to post?

I really like the fact that you picked one central theme and stuck with it. A cabinet doesnít need to scream ďOMG! BIDEO GAMEZ!!!Ē

LOLOL

i do like all kinds of cabs but i def wanted mine to have one central theme for aesthetics. Even though there's no coin door people still think i bought an old machine. That's exactly what i was going for.

About as pointless as building a cabinet. If you're good with a board sticking out of a pc with no asthetics, more power to you. I want to feel like i brought the "Arcade life" directly into my home office. So to accomplish that I'll probably get that coin door.

I can see both sides of it. All of my actual arcade games are set on free play. So I could say coin doors on actual cabs can be pointless ;)
Sadly I havent had a MAME cab in a long time, but when I did, it either had a coin button , or a coin up short cut.

So while aesthetically speaking, a coin door looks better (to me) functionally speaking its not really needed (to me). YMMV.

Donít get me wrong, itís a nice cab. And yes, a coin door for some is ornamental (I use tokens on my games, so doors are a must). But if youíre going to do it, do it right! :)

Agree, a nice coin door will really add to this build. Other than that, I can't critique, this is a great cab that knows what it is. I absolutely love it!

I donít know your location, but hereís a nice over/under coin door. If youíre local, you could score a great deal on it:

I just want to repeat how much I like this machine. No unnecessary blinky buttons.

That being said, get a coin door.

Thanks!!!

As much as im hearing it, i think I've decided that i WILL be getting one. After all its a "replica" and its just not measuring up if it doesn't replicate the feel of the original machine, which was that it was commercial and had a coin door. Therefore.....This replica needs a coin door.

Or you could just take it to the next level and build a piece of furniture disguised to play bideo gamez.

I've got a coin door off an Arachnid Super Six you can have for free if you get to Houston.  Would have to weigh it to get a shipping estimate....

Although still far, I am in Texas. I might just consider that. I don't plan on going anywhere super soon though. Maybe my family can go to the beach for vacation. Stop by there on the way Lol

Now that i think of it, gas may be more than shipping.

And are you sure? Free? Because that'd be awesome!!! My budget is shot for this thing. Lol.

The love of this community has me wondering if maybe id like to build another cabinet in the future. I was set on just doing one, but to be apart of this seems to good to just do once and leave behind.

Im not gonna lie....it's crossed my mind....but for now i definitely don't want to tackle that. Coin door is about the last thing I'll do on this one for a while.

Well, turns out I have the door but I donít have the frame or the hinge.  This would be more trouble than it's worth to install.

Yeah, turned out I basically stripped everything out of that cabinet that was part of the wiring harness and junked the rest.  Really need to throw all that garbage away.

That's a hard question to answer. The best i can say is.....as close as i could get it. We did mess upp a spot or two causing it to have its own unique design but to most, its almost identical.

Just wanted to throw in my two cents:

You may as well go ahead and face the facts though, you will be building more.

It could also lead as a gateway to collecting dedicated machines. I had all these multi game ideas in mind when I started, but I find much more joy restoring dedicated cabinets now.

  **NotThatSuperJenn puts on big glasses as to not be recognized.... (Giggle), I would have to agree, I had big dreams for Mame back in the day (Nice job on that one BTW) But got into dedicated and never looked back. anything coin/op really. games, jukes, slots, candy venders....Although Jenn did sell the pool tables a few years back due to space and maintenance problems.

I'm on the other side - dozens of machines over the years. I owned a few dedicated but always went back to emulation. Too many weird issues with real cabinets to justify the differences.

Great looking machine. If I were to change 1 thing, it would be the hardware to mount the joysticks. Use some black carriage bolts. You could also buy some black carriage bolts at home depot and grind off the names, and spray paint black. Minor thing.

I mildly wondered if anyone would ever think about the fact that those are just regular bolts. In person no one has said anything, but you make a good point. I may just consider it.

and on a practical side of carriage bolts, you can be rubbing the bottom of your hand against them while playing. It is going to be noticeable then.

Depending on the size you need, you can often get ones without manufacturers stamps on the end, and some of the arcade supply vendors carry them.

Just an example:

I thought that at first but the right side player has no blue in thier supermans color scheme. Most original machines have red on right to match the red supermans color scheme. There's no blue in his uniform. Look at the start button. It has a pic of each superman by it
