Title: My first build (four player wall mounted)
Post by: stryker213 on March 18, 2021, 08:00:53 am
Here's my first build. I'm still working out the kinks with Hyperspin. I'm looking to switchover to bigbox. The keymapping are throwing me off.

Here's my build walkthrough: https://imgur.com/gallery/Hqp687m?fbclid=IwAR0uTpTTpLB7-dHq22Gvus0xT1HN-094SHtYy9BrltLbdz8o5Fu53MzgJj8 (https://imgur.com/gallery/Hqp687m?fbclid=IwAR0uTpTTpLB7-dHq22Gvus0xT1HN-094SHtYy9BrltLbdz8o5Fu53MzgJj8)

Looks nice.  I guess its too late to suggest you not angle the P3 P4 joysticks?

If itís done already, I donít even bother commenting on that anymore.

Same.  In 20 years there are going to be so many cabinets out there with this mistake that people will be convinced it is correct, if it hasn't happened already. 

OP did a nice job for a first build although that CP is a bit too big for my tastes.

It's bottom mounted so it could probably be rotated.  But if its like my house there would never be a need for 4 players.  I did drag my son over to play 1 game of 2 player Joust on the new cab...lol.

A few feet, but we really don't use it much. I'll probably move it to another wall

Thanks. The CP is taller than what I wanted, but it's currently housing most of the electronics. If i wanted, I can detach it from the main cab and have a "portable" system
