Holy cow! Nice setup. This is going to be one hell of a machine.

You actually hacked apart a PS to power the speakers :dizzy:

Nicely done.
Where are you gonna mount the speakers, top or bottom part of your cab?
Are you gonna go with the stock CPU cooler?

Looking sexy as :)

I bet it will sound awesome :)

When I built my 1st mame cab I had some 6x9's and a car amp. I just hooked that straight up to the 12v from the atx psu, I presume thats wrong?

OK, I was only slightly annoyed before but now I'm legitimately pissed.  This is so incredibly awesome that the rest of us may as well quit.

Man you have some serious talent.  I can't wait to see how this turns out.   :cheers:

Holy kick-ass DIY Batman!

The paint (primer?!) finish on those pictures... looks like commercial molded plastic or carbon fiber or something...  :dizzy:
 :notworthy:


This is a fantastic-looking machine, luckily with well put-together electronics and internals. It will look like a factory finish once done, and I totally get the 'retro-futuristic' look you are going for - kind of what people in the 60's and 70's would consider futuristic (like looking back at Star Trek now - all spangly and shiny but basically just clever moulding and trickery). This reminds me a lot of a 'Computer Space' cabinet.

Couple of questions though - How are you controlling the volume/bass of that car sound system? Is there some kind of controller module that would mount nicely on the shell to adjust these levels, like the ones you sometimes get with 2.1 PC speaker systems? Also, how sturdy is the overall design? I know from in-car builds that wood, filler and fibreglass builds often crack with heat or over time as the chemical compound of them shrink and dehydrate.

You mean 600W computer power supplies? That's just... insane!

I guess I'm just used to my Mac mini, VIA C3 and intel Atom mini-ITX computers... all under 100W total including the LCD monitor.

I just read this entire thread from the OP, and I have to say:

Ond = Tony Stark. 

Seriously... you are Iron Man. 

... and you obviously have Stark Industries-level funding.  :o  Would you mind posting some pics of that holographic rendering engine you used to build the Mk.1 suit in the movie? 

Ridiculously amazing work.  Looking forward to the final reveal.

I don't know why I didn't get involved with this project sooner.  OND you've made it evident
over and over that you don't know what you're doing.  Here is a simple solution to your bass
punch problem.  Boy do I need to design this whole thing for you.  A duh just build a stool.

Personally, I think he should just hot glue the sub to the bottom of that cp.

Problem solved. And you get gut punching bass, literally.

Dude, in real life you don't happen to be Norm Abram do you? He has nothing on you, and I didn't even see you break out any fancy tools with lasers ect.. If you can pull this off with with crappy Ryobi routers and the like, well that's just insane! This thread also makes me want to track down and buy a few dozen cases of that spray putty (which nobody carries locally near me for some reason). Wow! :applaud:

LOL at the comment in the flyer... "Most competitive and fastest action of any video game ever". Well it would be wouldn't it? This was the very first wasn't it? Even before Pong?

on a side note, why isnt Computer Space emulated in mame?

If I had to guess, probably for the same reasons Pong isn't.

"The driver for "Pong" was pretty much an ad-hoc attempt at simulating the circuitry of the original machine, and it wasn't following any tracable path from the original circuitry to the driver (in other words, the writer "played it by ear," so to speak). The "pseudo-CPU" used for timing purposes was a kludge, also. Because MAME's mission is accuracy, and since the Pong driver wasn't sufficiently accurate, the driver was dropped. I've been informed that, should one actually attempt to properly simulate the circuitry (like using the video clock as a timebase), then it would be accurate enough for inclusion in MAME. However, simulation of discrete circuitry involves a jump of thinking over regular emulation programming (involving as it does the simulation of electric components normally overlooked in regular emulation--diodes, transistors, etc.--as well as the emulation of any ICs that may still be present.), and I don't know of anyone who has made such a faithful attempt yet."


Space war is in Mame, and as I understand it, is pretty close to Computer Space, so I just play that.
