Championship Sprint Arcade 1Up Mod
« on: March 15, 2020, 01:18:00 am »
I love racing games so I am attempting to widen a Galaga 1Up cab, put in a 20" monitor and add spinner steering wheels to play Championship SPrint, Off-Road. Indy Heat, Super Sprint, Pole Position...etc....



"Arcade Enthusiast" is just "sexy motha" with different letters

Gutted it, running a Raspberry Pi 3B+, guts look like a tangled mess. You won't get photos of the back! Widened the cab and ordered appropriate side art. Built a riser with Outrun pedals......

Having a rough time setting all of the games and emulators. SPinners work on some but not others, roms are good with certain emulators but not others and I have completely failed with the shifter on Pole Position. Like many of my past significant others, it may look pretty but it's a train wreck when you look too closely.

Sigh...... at least Badlands plays perfectly

Looks like quite the challenge.  Are you using pi for all your mods?

Looks real nice!

The failures you speak of are exactly what happened with me and my racing game cabinet. It's not a failure as much as a combination of the wrong hardware types and software limitations. I used a 360 degree wheel, return to center shifter, and microswitched pedals. It played only a few games correctly (sprint, badlands, off road). All other games was a weird kind of compromise, or didn't play it well at all. The shifter was the biggest issue since shifting registered as a button press, instead of locked in position to a specific gear.

Your cabinet is great looking. I'd probably have it work with just the games it can work well with. Make a small list for, Sprint, Badlands, Off-road, Demolition Derby and any other games that it kind works for, but quit trying to kill yourself getting Pole Position, Outrun, etc. to work.

When I had my driving arcade game, I put a couple other spinner games on it and people seemed to enjoy it. Puzz Loop, Cameltry and Arkanoid.
