Not exactly Mame related but certainly arcade related!  Just thought I'd share a few pictures of my completed project, after months of tinkering.  If anyone wants to read the full blog of the entire process, here is the link!

That looks fantastic!  Just in time for the new Black Knight Stern release.

Great game, impossible to keep running correctly.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Wow, that is awesome.  I spent many hours playing this at the mini-mart on my way home from school...

That was a fun read. I can't believe the level of detail you did to that thing. Beautiful. I hope to get a pinball machine some day as I feel you can't really emulate those. It gets close but won't ever feel like the real thing IMO. Great work!

This surely is a lot of work to do but looking at it now I feel like its new. I have checked your blog and have seen that the insights component to run the device was burn but you did manage to replace it with new components.  :notworthy:
You did a magnificent job!
