My cabs cp is 45cm wide. I think that the 15" inch monitor is too small for 2players cab. But there is ebough space for 2 players.

Sosetsuken i think that the BTTA logo sould be at the first screen of the video.(what you think??)
But if we go for the BTTA logo i think it sould be more bolded .....what you say?

Also what you say removing the reflection effect at the BTTA logo....(also here need your opinion)

Great thread, and a wonderful result.

I am in the process of building one of these too.  Can you please tell me:

* how did you power your lcd monitor?  Off the PC PSU?  Any photos of this?

* did you just use USB speakers?  1W per channel?  Did they work well?

Thanks

Hello my friend and good luck with your project.
I powered the lcd monitor using the psu. I opened the psu and i mounted(if this is the right espression) a cable like this one


I cut it in the middle. Inside this cable are three cables...the one is the power cable the other is the groun and the other is the neutral.
Take these 3 cables and mount them inside the psu, at the three pins.
POWER SWITCH AND AC socket.
If you dont know how to mount them .....go to a electrician....its to easy for him to do that kind of work.
I hope i have help ypu.
Please feel free to ask everything....glad to help you.  :)

oh I see!  Thank you for your quick reply.  :cheers:

Your machine looks amazing.    :notworthy:

 I'm at the early stage, just cutting out the mdf, getting ready to paint.  I've got a 17in LCD ready, a pc for parts, a 450W PSU (hope that is enough? What did you use?), and some new speakers.

What did you use for speakers?

And did you use the same part of the PSU to power the floerescent tube (light)?  That requires 12v right?

Thanks again!

Actually, I've been thinking about it some more...tell me if I am wrong.  Generally speaking:


230v AC --> PSU --> 12v DC --> PC

My monitor has it's own power brick, so its:

230v AC --> LCD power brick --> 12v DC --> LCD


In your example photo above, you're taking your power cord and tapping into the 230v, and then I would be running it through a power brick to the LCD.  That's fine.

So I guess I have two options:

1. 230v AC --> PSU and LCD power brick --> 12v --> PC and LCD
2. 230v AC --> PSU --> 12v --> PC and LCD

If I do 1, I will need power brick, but it's easier to tap into AC like you did.
If I do 2, I won't need power brick, but rely on PSU for 12v DC supply.

I think I might do 1.

AM I RIGHT?  Or am I not making sense at all?   ;D

I love the artwork and the cabinet.  Would you be willing to share the marquee and control panel artwork?  I'd like to do something in the same style, I love the marquee as is.  The control panel I'd need to modify heavily for my config.  I wouldn't know the first thing about creating those flames like you did for the tire trails.  I'd like to have those go direct into a trackball.

wow late response by me... sorry.  are you still willing to share the artwork?  I'm definitely still very interested.  I'm just now getting close to where I can install them on my cab.

Thanks!

EDIT - nevermind, worked up something using the vector graffic here

I am about making a refresh at my bartops look.
I will change the buttons to red and black.
I desperately want to convert my joystick (Mag-Stik S, black) from bat top to ball top.
Is there a way to do that?Any ideas?

here is my joystick

Sorry to resurrect an old thread...

I would like permission to use this image and if possible to get the Vector graphic of it.  I am co-owner of 'The Game Preserve' in The Woodlands, Texas and we are a Pinball and Video Arcade.   I also happen to own a De Lorean and a member of the De Lorean Owner's Club of Houston. 

I am planning on an event where the De Lorean Owners would bring their cars out (10 or more) and have a Back To The Arcade night.  If I could use the image it would be use for our Facebook page, website and posters.

Thanks in advance!

Hey dkssprs,

I was making a BTTF Themed cab, but have decided to take my cab in a different direction.

I have this which you could feel free to use, as I'm not using it anymore.



I have a Vector version of it if you would like it, so you can make it as big as you want.

Nice looking bartop btw :D
