Title: [Gaming Room] My Little arcade
Post by: retromax on January 07, 2010, 01:59:05 PM
Ok so seeing as i'm new on here I thought id post a bit of info on my cabs :)

First we have my Dedicated Namco Time Crisis machine that pretty much speaks for itself

(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/timec1.jpg)

my Electrocoin "Spectrum" Jamma cab which currentley has my "Final Fight" board in it (the Silverline Jamma cab on the left I no-longer have as I got rid of it to make room for another cab)

(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/spectrumff.jpg)

My "Radikal Bikers" cab that basically now has a PC inside it (as I got it quite cheap as an empty cab) it now runs MAME, Model2 Emulator & PC games.

Running "Super Hang On" on MAME

And Sega "ManxTT Superbike" on the Model2 Emulator
(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/AJmanxxtt.jpg)

Then we have my Converted "Cruisin' USA" cabinet that also now houses a PC and runs emulated games like MAME and the Model2 Emulator as well as PC titles like Crazy Taxi and Outrun2006 (Outrun2SP) amongs others
Here it is running Chase HQ
(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/chasehqdc.jpg)

and here running Crazy Taxi (before I modified the control panel with another shifter on the left)
(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/crazyusa.jpg)

Then we've got the first cab I got in 2001 my MAME'ed Electrocoin Xenon which I bought as an empty cab and converted it to run MAME, it's had quite a few revitions over the years!
(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/xenon.jpg)

Then we've got the cocktail cab that I built from Scratch that Runs MAME

(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/pacman-1.jpg)

(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/aj1.jpg)

then the minature MAME cab that I built for my little boy

(http://i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu10/retromax/36.jpg)

and finally my latest project is my Electrocoin Taito "Chase HQ" cabinet that I also got as an empty cab but it now runs Chase HQ via MAME from boot and nothing else.

Thanks all!.... I do try :)
It's all great fun!,
The flyers are all printed on A4 paper and then laminated, I also love ManxTT superbike and it runs great on my cab via the M2 Emulator, I've always loved Time Crisis too since I first played it on holiday one year.

If anyone cares to read about the conversion of the ChaseHQ cab you can read about it over at the retrogamer forum here:-

bruno is a big fan of older era classic games, i bet he is just joking that a true arcade must have some 'classics'. though of course classic can mean different things to all of us ;)

Nice game room! I like Chase HQ A LOT! Maybe you can find out an original PCB for that machine  :pac:

Thanks!, I have got a Chase HQ pcb but it needs a lot of repairing doing, there is a bad ram or something, no sound and something wrong with the colours and that's just the stuff I know about!. I'd also need to get hold of a 20" monitor too, I do have the wiring loom though ;D

Oh and the way I have things right now is great, to the untrained eye you can't really tell as i've got the patrol light's working exactley as they should and I don't have to worry about a 20 year+ year old board breaking down, I can do any repairs to the pc components myself if they broke down probably from stuff I allready have and as I own the original board....... technically it's all legal :)

That's no Radical Bikers, I have the PCB (and a cage and some other heavy stuff) but not cabb. Maybe we could work something out?

That is a nice Pizza delivery game. I'd sure like to have the cabb to put my game into.

I won't be getting rid of it thanks!, but just out of curiosity where are you?, I know someone near me that I think has one :)

Just another one of the games that inspired me to do this cabinet.
