I'd really like the plans but will hold out paying for them until the people you owe come forward that things are settled.

I have no doubt you will settle but it would be foolish to place new orders with someone that has outstanding delivery issues.

I order the plans as well, and I received them litterally within minutes of placing the order.  I guess we were just on-line at the same time.  I did comment to him that I was hesitate about purchasing because of his lack of communication, but he assured me that most of the missing correspondence was because of a mistake on his end.

Plans were not to bad.  I suggested to him he include a few more pictures showing assembly of marquee, etc.  Can easily work with what is on the plans.

Did anyone figure out how to handle the PC in this thing?

I mean, it looks pretty sweet and with MAME fever catching and all, I'm like everyone else and would really like one, but I'm a bit cautious about how to really put it together.

Anyone?

Shouldn't be any problem with mini-itx or hacking a JAKKS game

I'm still far too much of a newbie to understand what you just typed.

Translation, please, if you don't mind?

I'm trying to ascertain costs here--from a machine perspective, etc.

Thanks!

Mini-itx - very small PC motherboard

Jakks - those 4 in 1 plug into the front of your TV joystick games at the toy store.

Jakks is definitely the cheaper way to go, though also not as authentic.

I would think that if you can get any motherboard that has your video intigrated onto the motherboard, then you should be good to go.  You may run into space issues if you have to run any separate PCI/AGP cards.  I'm sure a lot of it will have to do with how you mount your monitor. (leave it in the original case, or disassemble monitor and mount it)

Well, I've been out for a few months but I'm back...and bumping this thread because my bartops are available once again.  I now have two styles available, the original Midway style cab, and a new Gyruss-inspired cab:




The price on them is now $149 + shipping.  Due to my workload, the turn-around time is 2-3 weeks.  I have a boatload of extra t-molding in just about every color available, and I will include some with each bartop as well.  The cabs are available constructed in your choice of either MDF or particle board (part. board weighs a lot less than MDF, something to consider for shipping).

I am embarrased to say that I have never seen an xbox in person (bear in mind that I am old, the "newest" console that I own is a PSOne and I bought that used), but I have no doubt that it would fit.  Changing games might be a bit awkward, though.

Not to take away from him, but why not just get this:

You'll hear back from them, it's not much more expensive ($199) and looks nicer.
