Starting my cab but need help/advice
« on: April 24, 2003, 07:30:39 pm »
Ok I am starting the conversion of a Dynamo cab with a 27" monitor. I want it to have a 4 players, 4 way joystick, spinner, trackball with buttons. I will use the I-PAC4 with Opti-pac and ArcadeVGA, and oscar for the spinner. (Yes I know this will be big)

But I really need help designing a theme and the art to go with it. This is what truely seperates an ok cabinet from an exceptional one.

Orignally I was going to do a black with yellow accessories theme but something this big needs more colors. I was thinking some thing like this maybe crossed with

I basically wanna copy zinfari's design but I have (NO, zero, none, nada) computer art skills. I was thinking that I would change the colors a little and make the characters 2 SF chars in the middle and 2 old school chars on the outside.

Could some one help me with the panel overlay? Free or not...

Any other ideas for a theme are welcome.


Pictures soon to come at

You must contact Zakk at Massive Mame. He made my marquee (based on one of his existing designs) and didn't charge me. He's a good guy.....
