At this stage of the game, would it not be easier to get a coffin and a $200 TCL and build the rest yourself?

Are we not BYOAC or what?   :w00t

So, is the question: is it easier to build a cabinet or buy one and put it together? lol

BYOAC = Buy Your Own Arcade Cabinet? ;P  Some would say we haven't been building arcade controls since we quit hacking keyboards for encoders and mice for spinners. For what it's worth, I enjoy the build, I enjoy playing, but I don't enjoy working harder if I don't have to, which is why I use ipac or Zero Delay encoders.

it depends on if you have the tools, enjoy building stuff etc.

this opens up the market for virtual pinball fans, the same way that arcade 1up has sold millions of cabinets already.

it won't sell that many, because less people are into pinball, and the pricepoint is higher.

but there will still be tens of thousands of sales of these.

Well if you don't have the tools and enjoy building stuff then why are you on this site?  Seriously that's kind of our whole deal here. 

What I will say is pinball parts are expensive, so you have to keep that in mind.

Well I am not saying to go out and buy MDF and make your own (you could) but lets start out simple and buy a few parts a pinball Duo, mod it for the PC [/url], cheap monitors from goodwill, spare PC from the basement.  Done.  $350 and you can do what you want - blank canvas.  I'd go for the extra $120 for graphics.

Which would be better?  Locked in with awful blah SW tables for $550.00 or $350.00 neutral black cabinet with PinMame+VPin.  BYOAC the rest.  Legends Pinball is $700 and you get Gottlieb pinball games....

So far, that hasnít been the trend. Buying and modding is the way of the 1upper. At least, for most of them.

I really do think itís not a one to one comparison, configuring tables, front ends and what not is a lot of work and know how required.

No it's not because those star wars tables suck, where you can get recreations of real tables via vp/fp.  ;)   Sometimes the extra work is worth it.

This.

What wouldn't need replaced on this machine to make it decent?

I would argue that video pinball is a poor substitute no matter what you throw at it. For me, video pinball is a non-starter. Make it as nice or crappy as you want. It isn't in the cards for me.

If the question is, how does this video pinball machine stack up to other video pinball cabinets? If history is any guide, it will be easy to acquire, build, configure and use. It won't have near the bells and whistles, durability and will not offer a lot of configuration options. If the question is if it is a good base for upgrades to get it to a level you would enjoy? No idea - your call.

One of the reasons would be the ability to move a video pinball around than a traditional one. 

I've decided to order one of the mid size table kits from GRS.  Their customer service is awesome.  Not sure about coffin artwork, so I am going for the standard look.

I hope I won't get any grief asking questions in the Pinball thread.  :lol

i take it you're talking about the arcade 1up ones.

the atgames one, has tons of options, configurations, online play, and bring your own tables,

which most of the prebuilt ones don't even have, and if you built it yourself, you still wouldn't have
all these options.
