Hi all arcade maniacs
When i was a little kid (now i am 27 years old...but still a kid) i used to believe that the richest kid in the world the first thing that it sould choose for a present definitely
would be a arcade machine like DOUBLE DRAGON
or FINAL FIGHT
etc having it in his playroom and to play the favorite arcade game with his friends. My point is that a kid having an arcade cabinet in his room it was the THE TOTAL "TOY"
.....which i never had.
From the age of 19 i found Mame to play with. I was very excited playing again my favorite Bubble Bobble , Shinobi etc.
But something was missing...something wasnt right...the feeling playing arcade games wasnt the same like before.
The problem was that i wa playing my favorite games but not using the original way.The keyboard isnt for that kind of game and also there wasnt a cab.
So i thought "is there a way to have an arcade cabinet in my room
I went to google and typed arcade cabinet = BYOAC .....and you guys here saw me the way to make my child dream come true.
Lots of hours serfing and gathering informations about the arcade project. I cant remember how many times i changed the project type (coctail ,cabinet , bartop ) but i decided to make a BARTOP project like weecade which i find it AWOSOME http://www.koenigs.dk/mame/eng/index.htm
(many gratz to Rasmus Kønig Sørensen ...pure inspiration)
I hope i didnt tire you but first i wanted to share these memories with you guys. Enough with the talking
... its time for some photoes of my progress
At the end i would like to say a personal Thanks to a helpfull member here in BYOAC who is helping me with the artwork of the cab ,cause i am awful with that part of the project
THANK you thatitalianto be continued....
