    Arcade Dreams Cabinet Project

    I went through it and painted chalk black (well it turned out grey actually ? ) . We'll see how it will stand the test of time (and my nephews...). I am quite happy with the results and the stealthy look of my cab is now restored. Eagle eye viewers will spot the bezel art that I've installed. ?

    Latest update here... Eagle eye viewers will notice the new working coin mech. Took me half a day to install it. Would have finished faster if I made the hole bigger for the coin return mech that, of course, I didn't take into account. No matter. I am thinking of painting it black though. The silver stands out too much on my build and spoils my stealthy approach. Maybe a chalk finish for the ultimate rustic effect that I am going for. What do you guys think? Edit: You can see it in action here
  5. Hey buddy, nice to see that you are starting your own build! I have to agree with F8lbyte on this one. A core 2 duo will do just fine. 4gigs of ram and a decent gpu, like a gtx 460 or better and you are golden.

    Funny thing is you do need a lot of space to build this thing. Once it is done however it doesn't take that much space. At least mine doesn't Latest update is that i bought a bar stool, here is a pic

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Indeed it was a labor of love, and I am really proud of myself that i went through with it. Is it perfect? ... No!, Would I change some things if i had the chance?...yes, but they are really minor annoyances. As far as T-mold is concerned, I thought about it, but it is not necessary, the cab sits at least 5cm above the ground so there is no fear of damage really, and since i don't have a router, I wont mess with it and F it up. Some specs of the build It rans a dual core intel CPU 6600 if im not mistaken, with 2GB RAM, and a GTX460 2GB VGA. It runs fine almost all games I am interested at the moment, i.e. Rocket League runs perfectly fine. The systems currently used are Mame, Amiga and Steam, with a couple of Mugen games. Here are some more pics of the final build. Tell you the truth it looks better in real life ;)

    I know I havent posted in a while, well everyday life chores and problems kept me away from my project and i've only had 2 weekends to work on it. So here is the (booooring) sanding and staining part. The stain is water based. Gluing the drawer some more work done Almost there and reassembly. Something worth noticing that ive found the "hard" way: when the wood is stained, it swells and i mean quite a lot. It changed the measurements and i had trouble fitting some of the pieces and passing the screws through the drilled panels. Now its time for the electronics, but thats a work for another weekend.

    Oh yeah i knew that. But i had to see it in full with all the buttons etc. I designed the cabinet so that it can be disassembled and reassembled at will so now i completely took it apart for the staining. As far as the Marquee goes it will stay like that for the time being. I want to finish the staining process asap. I am also considering cutting wooden letters. We ll see.

    Drilled the cp. Ive decided to follow titchgamer advice and go with the 2 row-4 buttons layout since i found ready templates at slagcoin.com. Also ive drilled holes for the speakers and added a mesh And put it all together. The cabinet is pretty much complete at this point. Now for the dreaded sanding and staining of the wood.

    The monitor is attached. The plan changed since the AOC monitor is not available at the moment. So instead ive used a samsung 24 inch
