My Bucket List
« on: November 15, 2021, 08:57:57 pm »
So this is not like a regular project topic, its more like a personal thing im going to do. And in order to make it public somehow, i chose BYOAC forums so perhaps someone else gets inspired. Seing alot of people gone this year, made me realise we can go pretty mch anytime. So before i kick the bucket, i would love to create a list of projects i would like to build. Lately i  had an idea of building , mini arcades of the games i really use to love, the idea is to use 14inch crt monitors, and a pc with groovymame and emudrivers, i would love to use fpga hardware but im not very familiar with that stuff at the moment. So ill be modifiyng this and the list as i please. So my first projecthas to be, Circus Charlie. I have to admit it, Circus charlie has a special place in my Heart. I use to play it and fell a special thing inside me. the music and the levels are so nice. I had a hard time finishing all levels once you finish the what? 5 or 6 times for the same level? Anyway, heres mi list.

Mini Circus Charlie.  (bartop wall mounted type with crt and a pc running emudrivers with groovymame)
Mini Pacman
Mini Ms Pacman
Mini Mikie
Mini Sinistar
Mini Robotron
Mini Gaplus
Mini Kung Fu master
Mini Kicker
Mini Yiear Kung Fu
Mini Mr Do
Mini popeye
mini punch out
A vpx pinball machine, for me...
More to be added.

So if anyone cares on a cheap way to make a single  game with fpga that outputs 15khz, i would apreciated that.
Thanks for reaindg and stay tuned. Construction should begin In a week or two.

This might be the most ambitious post Iíve ever seen on this forum.  I like mini-cabinets if they are modeled after the originals.  This would be very cool if it happens - I hope you follow through!  Good luck.  :cheers:

So the hardest part would be getting 13/14 inch crt monitors, so i found out some tvs are easy to rgb mod and use them as arcade monitors. So that being said, i just found me a samsung tv 14 inch just like the one the 8bit guy moded for rgb, so it was just simply following his video instructions, andddddd i got me a circus charlie monitor, YES... i need to find me a remote control to fix the horizontal width but judging for the image i might keep it like that, its not much that is missing, so tomorrow ill start drawing the cab plans based on the monitor size and i will see how i get from there. I love the bright colors and crisp picture, camera dont look good but in person looks awsome...

Why is everything flipped backwards?  Do you live in Australia?

You must have a generous person funding this arcade you are constructing.
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.
