Thats true.. i just got interested on a jukebox software that can be installed to use with Hyperspin. The cabinet will be staying in my garage so it would be cool to play music thru it also...

I just made the powering ready.

Edit: all ok 👍

I only use the white box to ensure future possibilities for 220V and for cleaner wiring🙂.

Some progress again. I divided the door board in three parts to make door itself a bit lower by adding on top and under the door the 2 other pieces.

Fitted the hinges to the door and mounted everything to cabin, also door lock is now in right place and working.
 ->Hinges were so deep that i needed to use sanding roll to slowly make the depth. Only 3mm wood left now on those. The door board is obly 14mm. (Sides are 18mm)

Soon i can start the sanding. The speaker shelf needs some work before that.

Jumped from woodwork to computers for a while.

I got a bit better computer for the project, its almost a bit overrated with quadcore and 8800GTS 2gb. Im making it ready when its on a Chieftek case but almost sure im going to strip the case and mount the parts directly inside the cabinet.

Hyperspin and Rocketlauncher are now running on it, also did allready some optimizing for Windows10 Pro it has as OS.

Its going to run MAME, snes, nes, nN64,metadrive,GB,GC, Different Ataris, ps1,ps2 to start with but main use will be MAME.
Havent tried the Jukebox software yet.

Im also waiting for the trackball to arrive to get CP ready.

Leave it in the case. There is no reason to decase it unless it is a small build and there is no room for the case.

Mike: how about heat - isnt it better for the computer to get more air if parts are on open air inside the cabin?

Ofc i can open the side of the computer too. Then theres ofc the question how to mount the case inside so it stays in place when moving the cabinet around.

Is there any guru here for Hyperspin ? I have few questions (posted these Hyperspin forum too):

1. How can i add new emulators for this compilation out from the original Hyperspin (global) list . Now i have Mame, SNES, Nes etc but if i want to for example add Turbo Engine 16 (added allready emulator for it) - how can i get it to global and choose the emu + romdir for it? This is crusial information, can ofc try to google more but i bet some guru here has a fast working answer.

2.Themes: I just installed the original theme, is it easy to change it without breaking everything else...

3. Trackball - im waiting for trackball to arrive. Im going to attach it to PS2 port right? Can i then from HyperHQ adjust it?

4. Windows10 modification. Any real working experience on this. I have removed the GUI loader but its still showing the Win10 logo on startup. I also want it to log in to HyperSpin automatically, but still i need to get out from there sometimes to windows use - is this possible?

 :D

The PC case is designed to remove heat. It is better to leave it in the case.

Decased or cased.... both work fine. I have never had a heat issue. Never.

Im not that afraid of heating either (never had problems with heat earlier in life when played A LOT FPS games).

My concern is basically mobility for the cab (stays in place if i need to move the cab) and depth. Cabin is under 60cm deep so this pc case wont fit there if i dont put it vertically to the bottom.

Ofc it would save some time and work and i would only have to worry about the 32" LCD heat. Should i leave those holes on the top as passive vents and put one 10cm fan on the bottom hole that brings in air to the cab? Heat goes always up anyways :D?

About coin doors- isnt 1 enough for 2 player game as the same one credit amount is used by both players?

This would mean that one credit button is enough too.

DEpends on the game -- SOme use the 2nd coin input as a different slot since it also selects which player gets the credit and selects that character. ( ie. putting a coin in 2nd player coin slot selects player 2 - while 2 coins in player 1 coin slot just adds a 2nd credit to player 1.)

Thx JDFan!

I thought this over and I think im going to do a compromise here: Im going to add 2 credit buttons under the kb/mouse drawer and maybe add the coin doors later as i have them allready. Also im going to add that computer in the case to the cabin and think a bit about that vent /fan hole that it is going to cover. This way im quite close to sanding phase, just few holes away.

BTW: I had a blast yesterday when i briefly tried like 50 different MAME games on that computer im going to use to cabinet - It brought up many memories from childhood!   :lol

Heres pic with last holes for buttons. Flippers, powerbutton to rear and credit buttons to front.

Next step is serious sanding 🙂

The case fits vertically quite ok, if im not going to decase it.

Got trackball holder today and also the polycarbonate for the margue.

I just almost completed the CP, i really like the carbon vinyl material, some living shape from the wood panel but NO bubbles 😎. T-molding also installed.

I still wait for the joystick stick lenghteners ive ordered, theyll add 1,5cm more lenght as the CP is thick, 18mm. (last image)

Progress. T-moulding done too.

Now working on speaker shelf. It was ready yesterday but the wood was so rough that carbon didnt look good, so im making a new shelf from scratch.

Then hinges to CP etc.

Speakershelf done. Mounted the amp too as i wanted it to be visible. Now its also close to speakers. For mounting plate under the amp frontplate i used a dvd disc. The idea for this just came to me and heck - it worked out quite good and works with my jukebox idea. Cut the hole for the disc with dremel and painted black so it has some special art too 🙂.

I was wondering the same thing.  Wouldn't that be hidden by the bezel?

The TV has a transparent 1.5cm strip around it and lights show thru from that strip. Like i wrote before im still thinking about that bezel as i have to think about confs and also all the use for cabin.

I just had those lights available so had to try :).

Thx. I just mounted the speaker shelf, im quite satisfied with it.

Next step is to attach controls to buttons and test them, and attach CP. Just tried the display with kb and mouse.

Im using Win10, so have to see how to get it to work best way. Its certainly not the best alternative to use on cabs.

Aesthetics aside, I just think that at some point something sticky is going to get spilled all over the CP because drinks are obviously encouraged to be nearby.  This thing came out really nice though.

True, that risk is always near. Those cups are quite deep, so i can make rules that ”only cans allowed”  :).

Im still waiting for Marque art to arrive so making some small staff meanwhile. Today i finshed all the buttons wiring, also power button works now.

Im facing some problems with Hyperspin, the wheel just keeps turning when I try to touch joysticks, havent figured out what causes it.  :banghead:
I tested and started games directly from RocketlauncherUI and fixed setting from mame itself and joysticks seem to work fine there and i can play all mame games that way. Any ideas? Im using latest Hyperspin (from 2-3weeks back).

Also: where can I adjust other emulators controls? Hyperspin doesnt work att all like Retroarch / retropie I use on my bartop. ???

None of those do 16:9 (maybe the spotify thing).  I'm just wondering why the wide screen and not a 4:3 monitor unless there are specific games you plan on playing.  For example, Street Fighter IV and V are widescreen so maybe those?

Hyperspin is just a front end that links to your emulators.  To adjust the controls you would need to go into said emulators GUI or config file.

True, i have also N64 and PS2 emus installed which will be the highest emus and will only have few games unlike Mame and Megadrive with lots more.

Bigger 4:3 monitors are hard to find, I have on stock 2 x 19" 4:3 but those are way too little screens for this size cabin. Ofc the 32" lcd gave me the measures for the build, could have gone with more narrow build with 19".
