Yes, similar but not the same. I found a thread which shows the difference well.

Decided to redo the sides of the scoring area, made the top part too large and didn't like the sharp angle as a real skeeball game has curves, had to design the curve and use my way too dull flush trim bit which caused some burning but game out pretty good.  Still need to sand them smooth and looks much more like the real thing.  Also cut the circles out for the scoring area lighting as well as installed the red beacon on top of the game.  Found some spare red oak that i used for a different project and made them the side supports to hold up the scoring ring backboard.  Put it next to the lane and was glad to see the beacon is still below the joists in the basement, yay for tall ceilings.  Tracked down some more plastic rail covers including the ticket dispenser cover which is awesome, now to work on the ball return under the scoring rings and work on the ramp.

Cyber Sled... Cyber Sled.... CYBER ****ING SLED HOW DID I FORGET YOU?! :banghead:
Glad you remembered it before you got too far in the build process.   ;D

EDIT: Almost immediately after posting this I took to Google again and actually found a scan of the Cyber Sled operator's manual, which has a section on maintenance of the joystick potentiometers, thus answering my question. If my recollections are anything to go by, I could probably make microswitch sticks work, but it's probably best to just get some analog. *looks at the UltraStick 360FS price* Oh, boy, this is gonna sting.... But it'll be worth it.
Have you considered using a USB Playstation2 controller (or similar with two analog thumbsticks) for Cyber Sled?

Emulation for Namco System 21 games still has some rough edges, but there have been some recent advances IIRC.

Pretty sure you'll need to use a networking connection for a 2-player game, but I'm not sure about the current state of network emulation in Cyber Sled.   :dunno

I was intrigued anyway but now the acrylic has me really antsy to see the finished product.

Hope your weather improves!

Cheers bobbyb13  :cheers:

The weather isn't too great at the moment but at least there are some dry spells - even if it's grey out there.

I've managed to drill the holes in the CP and check that everything lines up. I need to trim a couple of mm off the side panels and then I can glue and screw them into place before sanding it down and filling it.

Dry assembled:


You can see the chamfered sections to act as guides to make slotting this in as easy as possible. The middle chamfered piece has a threaded insert to allow the panel to be attached to the base section.

I've left about 1mm around the perimeter of the acrylic to allow for the layers of paint.

Also - my kids and I enjoyed the film. It was fun, and the appropriate length. 90 minutes is where it's at.
Amen to this.  Whatís with every new movie going almost 3 hours these days?  Drives me crazy. If itís good enough I will barely notice but most of the time Iím checking the clockÖ

Why is my computer saying the GUI provided by Nuexzz has a trojan virus in it please

It's almost certainly a false-positive virus report.  That explanation has already been offered in this thread.  Threat can be assumed for unrecognised/unpopular software that interacts with file system.  It it works for you then please submit a false-positive report to Windows Defender to help Nuexzz reputation.

You must have a generous person funding this arcade you are constructing.

And hereís the loose cart inside a very special temporary loaner case flashed with the SF2 enhanced rom that fixes the colors and voices.  PCB drops right in and fits correctly.
