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.

www.rust-oleum.eu maybe? It seems they have offices in Europe (none in Germany though...).

Thank you so much Matteo  Grin
Damn thing was really starting to worry me.
15  General Chat / Technical Area / Hantarex anode wire question on: June 16, 2009, 12:17:15 PM
I finally got the courage to discharge and clean my 2 monitors and I've found something interesting.

There seems to be a bit of copper mesh (shielding) coming out of the anode wire, completely uninsulated  shock. Now that doesn't seem right to me but it's the same on both of my mtc-900's... Is this normal?

I was thinking of just wrapping it in electrical tape, but with the heat these monitors produce, it would just fall off in month. What should I do?

p.s. sorry about the crappy pic, didn't have a proper camera with me.
