« on: June 30, 2018, 10:18:53 pm »
How many cabinets does one need that plays old games?  X + 1

Anyway, knocked out the sides and cut the t-molding slot today.  Not sure if Iím cutting down existing artwork or buying opt2not a new pair of silk ankle socks.

Smoothed out that bump on the top.

Framed and glued. Best I can do when it's 102 in my garage.

I will be following this. I got one of those jakks which has pacman, galaga and one or two more games.  (Or maybe Ms pacman.).
I need some sort of cabinet to put it in, so I may steal your idea.

Jakks Pacific? Something like this??
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ms-Pac-man-TV-Games-Plug-Play-5-In-1-NAMCO-2004-JAKKS-Twist-Control-Joystick/382506653973

Yep. As a matter of fact that one. I bought it off ebay a couple of years ago, been gathering dust since then. It works, but missing the battery cover, and I think I had to re-solder a broken wire on the video cable, it kept cutting out. I drug it out of my hoarder collection and took a picture of it:

We used to have one of those.  It was surprisingly fun.  My oldest took it to college and the kids on his floor played the crap out of it.

Yeah, its Ok. I was thinking of putting it in a small bartop cabinet, but when I took it apart, I could see some problems getting it to all fit in a cabinet.
The joystick is a spinner too, so I figured I had to use it, and not a standard joystick. I think thats what threw me for a loop.

Im anxious to see how PBJ pulls this one off.

Yeah, I will have to get creative with the joystick spinner.  Couple of options there... use a real joystick and rig the Jakks one to a spinner knob.... modify a real joystick....

I'm a little more concerned about the marquee area.  What can I say, you start losing your mind in 102.  I'll come up with a solution that will annoy me but nobody else will ever notice.

Weecade?

No.  :bat

It's a weecade.

It's worse than a weecade, its a Junker putting together junk stuffed with more junk. He may even snazz it up with free crap gift cards to claire's boutique.

I love it! I can't wait to see the end product!
