I am so happy! It will be an expensive piece of history when I finally have it in my hands but it's worth it.
So glad I settled for nothing less than original.

Now, maybe it's time to get me a DK board instead of a computer :)

Question for Scr33n or Darth Nuno,
if I use a computer, could you point me in the right direction about using DOS AdvanceMAME? Installing etc?
I have a Windows XP computer running MALA frontend with MAME in my Sega Astro City.
But for this DK project I think I want to try DOS AdvanceMAME. Allready have a homemade VGA->Scart cable like you two build them :).

Thanks to Sonic 1992 I was able to buy this coin door. Seller ships the door to Sonic 1992 in the USA and then he will ship it to me in the Netherlands :) Thanks Barry!

Hi, if the photo you take is of a Nintendo coin door, sell it to me :)
However it is a good thing you post a picture of it anyway, so everybody know what you are talking about.

Thanks for the replies.
No I haven't tried KLOV and Arcadecontrols forum yet, will do that.

After a few months of not working on my scratch-build DK cabinet, I finally picked up this project with which I am busy for quite some time now,
Last week I finally painted the cab blue. Cabinet is almost done now. Just one final coat of blue and a final coat of black and the painting is done.
But I just won't settle with the Happ Coin door I originally bought for this cabinet.
It just wouldn't look right :)

For anyone interested, take a look at my progress so far -->

For my scratch build DK cabinet I am in desperate search of a Nintendo coin door. None on Ebay at the moment, and when there is one they won't ship to the Netherlands most of the time.

Thanks for looking!

About rotating like Level42 mentions,
that probably doesn't fit. I tried it in my DK cab with a round wooden board just like that website shows.
Maybe if your monitor is smaller than 21" it will fit. My screen is 21" (55cm) and that doesn't fit.

But rotating in you cab can be done very easy! (manual).
If you make the wooden board which supports the monitor SQUARE, you can just rotate it 90 degrees and you have a horizontal display!
That's how I have done it.

I see you used L-brackets for mounting the wooden support panel, that would take a long time refitting after rotating.
I used two wooden beams attached to the sidepanels of the cab, and the wooden monitor support panel slides and rest OVER that.
Drilled 4 holes for fastening the monitorpanel to the beams with bolts. They don't need to be tightend very good,
it must just hold the monitorpanel in place.

Look at my pic:

Awesome work so far Scr33n!
About the bezel retainer, you can see how it is originally mounted on this picture:

This guy at is restoring a DK cab, doing a good job and taking lots of pics!
Which comes in handy for replica builders.

Good luck and I follow your progress with great interest.

Thank you! :)
Yes I am building a DK cabinet as well. But been busy with it much too long though :(
Other arcade related things keep me busy as well. Like a Sega Astro City japanese candy cabinet.

Scr33n is doing a superb job. If I could do it over, I would definetly change a couple of things.
for instance, never screw from the outside of the cabinet! :(
I had to fill all the screwholes multiple times. And still not perfect.

Scr33n is right about the Jakobud plans not being to faithful to the original cab.
Some things are missing in the plans, monitor support, speaker grill is not exactly original, top-front sindpanel corner (at marque height) etc.
But you find out those things while building and comparing to original DK cab photo's.
Maybe we have to adjust those plans and send comments to Jakobud.

Good luck on the cab Scr33n! You're doing an outstanding job.
Your previous cabs were spot on, this will too.

just got my first candy cabinet last weekend! a SEGA ASTRO CITY! ;D
absolutely love it. still have to clean it and such, it's been used for over a decade in japanese arcades i guess.

i also love some of the classic wooden cabs,  such as the donkey kong and pac-man / galaxian.
(have a 90% complete scratch-build dk cab as well)

i am up for:
- donkey kong
- street fighter 2



wrong thread for this question probably,
but about connecting jamma pcb's.

since i don't have a jamma harness or jamma cabinet to start with, can i use a normal pc atx power supply with these boards?
or does it sound really stupid? :) and what is the right way to connect these jamma boards to a scart tv? if possible.
i am familiar with the vga-scart connector (using it now with arcade-vga and mame setup). but i need to add transistors or something?

can someone help me out? thanks.
