I'd buy an arcade game but whenever anyone comes over all they want to do is get drunk and sit in front of the projector anyways.

I finished off this project just yesterday. Here's the final result, joining two uprights on the gaming side of the HT:

Who, me?

Here are the uprights. I did not make the short one...it's a a BJs special I got cheap because it was damaged. But it did start me on this journey.



I was under time constraints for the upright cabinet (needed to be done for my kids BD party), and so I opted for a pre-made X-Arcade Tankstick. For the cocktail, that's totally from scratch..

Missed this before. Not sure if you were serious, but seeing as your in OH and I'm out in MA I don't think it'd work out for us

For those searching for the dictionary definition of sick, he mean feeling ill, regurgitation, might need to go to the hospital, pneumonia, or just short people (i.e. stunted growth).

Alright, I've got a question on one of my cocktails (Frogger).

I recently picked up a Frogger cocktail that turned on and looked good, but I had no sound on the machine. I found out what was thought earlier by me to be a bolt sticking out of the bottom of the machine was actually a volume knob all the way on the other side of the machine. I turned up the volume and unfortunately found out why the previous owner turned it off... It emits an annoying high pitched interference sound out of the speakers instead of the regular Frogger sounds and music. Now I have to find out why it's doing that.

I traced the volume control (cord) to a spot on the rom board where it plugs in. A cord with the white plug on the end is it and plugs in to a six-pin spot sticking out of the board. Taking out the plug cuts off the sound.

So, after seeing that the high pitched sound goes away (in fact, no sound comes through the speakers at all) if I unplug the white connector from the six-pin connector on the board, am I to assume the wire is bad? Or do I possibly have a bad chip on my board? I don't know anything about this stuff at all, so please bear with me if I don't use correct terminology and such.

Please help! I desperately want to hear the Frogger sounds and music on my machine! Thanks!

Someone help this man!

If you do not get help by christmas, mind if I buy you a mame cocktail cabinet so you can play ANY game including Frogger?

I say get one! I have a stand up MAME cab and have had it for like 3 years and still play on it at least once a week. They definaltey don't make games like they used to for sure. I LOVE digdug and it has to be one of my all-time faves

Can't get a cocktail cab becuase I slipped a disk in my back and can't arch over like that so just be aware of that as I know it can be an issue especially if you are playing it a lot.

Please post your pics - I can't wait to see what they've got. *jealous*

I'm near 6'5" so I'm with you on that one. That's why I designed the "island" (see above) to be taller than your typical cocktail. I can actually stand up at it.

It's turned out to be a big hit at parties too. People can switch off really quickly, and it allows a lot of people to easily huddle around the machine to watch the action. The ladies really like the island-cocktail. They play it all the time during parties, but rarely do I see them at the upright cabinet.

I'm still looking for more affordable solutions. Anything hovering aroudn 1K is affordable for a MAME cabinet to me...

How did this guy do this?

I can't figure it out, are these graphics? If so they are wicked:

Looks like a marbleized vinyl, or Formica.

how difficult would it be for me to apply that to a kit?
post #119 of 127
Well, speaking out of my @ss b/c I have no experience with that kit...but I'd say it shouldn't be (too) difficult at all. The vinyls are usually self adhesive so they are easy to apply as long as you go slow and take care to avoid bubbles. Formica is a bit more complicated as you have to work with contact adhesive, and then use a flush trim bit in a router to trim the excess to the contours of the panels.
