ARC - Smash TV 25" Conversion
« on: January 14, 2019, 04:36:32 pm »
After a couple of iterations of building completely custom cabs and parting with them, I decided I wanted a cab again, but lack the time or motivation to build one totally from scratch.

I obtained a 25" SmashTV that was converted to Tekken 3 for $175 locally.



I'm converting this to drive GroovyMame via a PC mounted inside, using a WG K7000 25" chassis and a donor tube.  The tube in the cabinet was consistently blurry, and even after a recap of the k7000, I couldn't get it to converge. The plastics on the tube were brittle and broken, and the convergence rings were broken as well.  I found an RCA donor tube and did a tube swap, and have a MUCH, much better picture now.

Some details of what features the completed cabinet will have:
  • Custom Artwork
  • 2xUltimarc ServoStik auto-switching 4-way/8-way joysticks
  • 2xUltimarc U-Trak trackball
  • 25" k7000 Arcade Monitor
  • Custom PC running GroovyMame + CRT_Emudriver
  • *Maybe* multiple control panels

More to come....

Man it would have been cool to see that converted back to a Smash TV. But that game gets old quick. Good luck with the build. Will watch!

Small money! Big prize!

Good job. Those kinds of scores are getting rare.
