I'm familiar with the XL's. I also know better than to say that "Arcade1up has no intentions...." because they've surprised me already a few times.

They could still do better with the risers. The boot option is ugly.

Refined the front and back lower panels, rounded off front and back edges too, might need to give it a quick sand with some 240 grit before it's wrapped.

Maybe getting ahead of myself but I've wrapped the bottom panel, installed the grill and fan, have put it one side as i won't need it till I'm ready for the final push  ;D

The wrap is "contact paper" which as a slight texture to it, had it a while, wasn't a lot of money for 10m (eBay) think it was about 9 delivered. 

The line you can see is not my wrapping skills, said i was winging the design, had to add on about 18mm to the panel as i changed my mind with the rear as i was going to recess the panel but instead flushed mounted it, only realised after i had cut the panel, it's going on the bottom so won't be seen anyways  :angel:

Again a long way to go but still moving forward.

@JayBee,

Great project - especially for those in Countries that don't allow even imitation guns to be sent in the mail like Australia :censored: I've been wanting guns for years and this may indeed be an option.

Just FYI, given that your firmware is based on https://github.com/samuelballantyne , in some countries you are likely legally required to provide the source code and/or have a license with the original author in order to distribute. Having said that, I'm not a Lawyer :P

I think maybe it's time they just offer up full sized cabinets.
I'm really starting to dislike the look of the cabs with the addon pedestal underneath.
it breaks up the flow of the cabinet.

the street fighter big blue is the tallest cabinet they have, and that has a riser also.

that is the only way they can package the item into a space that can fit in a flat pack
on retail shelves.

they have no intention of making standard full size cabinets. it's a licensing issue also.

You got to think outside the riser....

I've always agreed that the "boot" look isn't the best, so all my A1up's I've modified cleaned up those lines as much as possible. They can make it sleeker looking, like I did with the Tempest:


that comment was from last year.

now they are including a new segment on some cabinets that makes them taller.

see the new mortal kombat legacy, golden tee XL, nba jam shaq, tron, etc.

Thanks I checked and I am unfortunately out of the return window. It took me a while before I could get it installed

Well I guess for now I can enjoy the games that don't crash

I never glue my cabinets and I think many of them are just about bomb proof.   The method I've finally settled on is to put 2x2s in the corners of joints to use as a surface to screw into... works great.   Gluing does add a lot of strength, but it becomes a pain if you want to change something or repair a damaged area.

This is what I was planning on doing.  Technically it's how I built my first one except I glued and screwed the blocks in. 

Assuming your happy with your original OG Mame build (and don't plan on moving anytime soon) an alternative might be to widen the door entrance. My brother purchased a 80 inch monster TV set for movie night back in the day and widening the doorway was the answer. A bit of drywall, frame remove/replace was all it took. Of course, If your looking to update your cab that works too. Just another idea ;)

I removed the door and frame to fit a Area 51.  Now if I wanted to widen the door farther then that I would have to move wall studs and some of the kitchen cabinetry as my arcade room is technically a dining room off the kitchen.

I have hi-res PNGs of various stickers. I've reassembled them by hand so they're not absolutely 1:1, but hopefully these should do.
