I built a new leg as the front left one was missing (but can't find the pictures of it...)
I re-glued the black plastic covering the front left leg that fell off during transport.

Still need to make a new backdoor as the old one was water damaged beyond repair (bloated, bent and chipping) and get a lock for it. Anyone know what size lock to get? I got the cabs without any locks and all the locks I can find locally are just tiny.

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days. WAAAAAAAAAY overdue update...

Due to work priorities, I wasn't able to do the whole project myself. Some was delegated to a co-worker (like the wiring, ugh... will not show that).
Anyway, it's been running for months now even though it's not complete... mostly X-men Vs Street Fighter.

Replacing the marquee light was a pain, the old bulb was dead and the mount was falling apart. I could not find the proper size bulb and mount anywhere. Bauhaus had the right size bulb but doesn't sell that size mount (wtf?). I tore apart an smaller old bathroom light for the mount and ballast and mounted the bulb from Bauhaus (finished pic to be added tomorrow when I get to work).

I've put a coin button in place of the coin door lock as I can't seem to find a lock that would fit. That and the door is a bit of a tight fit so it doesn't open by itself, or easily for that matter.

Andhe cab's new location, the office conference/game room.

This project looks promising:
https://hackaday.io/project/9763-super-low-cost-vga-output-for-the-pi-zero

My *nix driver configuration skills are a bit sub par, but I'm pretty sure that you should be able to set 15khz output in the /boot/config file...
I only have a B model, no B+ or zero to test... Any volunteers?

Thanks guys.
I'm a bit worried the CP is gonna give me hell. Trying to fit a Street Fighter layout on 15.5cm*57cm, it should fit but we'll see how it plays.

@ Q*ris X2 - I actually opted for a mame setup initially but was outvoted (too much time/work roll eyes). There have been complaints to the lack of Mortal Kombat on the board so who knows, maybe we'll ditch it.

I've had these two generic cabs for a while and since I don't have space for them at home, my brother thought it would be an awesome addition to the office (yes, I work for my brother... don't ask).

Anyway, to satisfy the majority, it was decided to convert the empty cab to a multi-game (game elf blue 619-in-1 to be exact).
Since my brother is impatient, the cab has already been moved to the office. (pic #2)


Here is the print company guy attaching the new sideart. You can see damage to the left leg (it's missing) and the black plastic fell off (need to re-glue it). The sideart came out much better than I expected (wasn't my choice but wasn't my money either Ghost). (pic #3)


We ordered a new PSU and wiring for reliability. New Sanwa sticks (they're so wonderfully clicky Grin) and concave buttons.
I'll have to build a new CP as the current one already has too many holes. Since I have literally 0 metallurgy skills, I'm gonna have to make it from wood/MDF.
Also need to replace the marquee lamp and see what I can do about the coin slot lights (the wiring is pretty bad and they don't work).

Will keep you updated on my progress.

I usually lurk (mostly because I have nothing good or interesting to write), but not today  Cheesy

A few weeks ago I went to the local flea market looking for the usual: old games and old audio gear (including records). Most of the time I don't find anything interesting, but I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these two just sitting there! A near mint DK? No way...
I picked up the DK and asked the lady how much? 2 (15kn local currency)? I'll take the Mickey and Donald too!!!

At first I figured I'd sell them, but the DK grew on me real fast (Mickey and Donald not so much) it's a lot more fun then I expected (I usually suck at LCD games).
So anyway, now I'm looking for a case to put them in so they don't get any more scuffs =]

Does this remind anyone else of Back to the Future?

Congrats on the new game.

WOW! Nice fix.
What are these sticks called and where do you get them? I'm sure I'm gonna need them some day.
