    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    This is soon to be my new game room! I'll have room for 12 machines. Complete with a bar! We close on 4/11 and move in 4/14

    Wow, congrats- beautiful home!

    That's beautiful! Have a pic of the upcoming gameroom?
    Your driveway has to be fairly lengthy, but your soon to be neighbor
    up above has to have a pretty long winding one.

    Looks beautiful. I love the floors.

    Best friend gave me a Bally X's and O's to add to the collection! Its in decent shape and plays great! Can use a flipper rebuild, and need to get a new upper right plastic for the PF. Not sure if CPR planning to do the plastics.

    LED beer sign over the kegerator is from the fiance! Whoo!!

    #8358 2 years ago

    wackybrakke pardon for the question and if you don't want to answer I understand, but how much is that place costing? It looks outstanding.

    Your game room looks like fun. Seems like you need a better translite for your Whirlwind, though.

    Love the Slim Jim shark advertising. Whats the story on that? Don't think I've ever seen one.

    Super vibey setup... what neat DJ lightshow are you using that covers your entire ceiling like that?

    #8376 2 years ago

    like to have a variety to play......the Mario karts are always a hit......bar size pool table in the adjoining room
    whirlwind is my current project.......already have a new translate

    slimjim shark head was on the counter at the local shell station filled with slimjims...bought it for $20

    the lights on the ceiling are just regular track lighting with GIANT barrel of monkeys hanging from them

    Thanks man. The pics are from last month, so I have to take some new ones.

    I have it mounted in the corner above the mounted flatscreen TV. If I point it down a little, it actually covers the entire gameroom but it gets somewhat distracting when you're playing a pin...especially after a few IPA's.

    Totally ordering one, thanks!

    #8379 2 years ago
    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    This is my game layout plan

    so looking at your plan the pins need more room since the head is bigger than the bottom cabinet or is that with the head width included? and I usually leave a little extra room in between so I can wiggle in to open the backbox?

    #8380 2 years ago
    Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:

    Totally ordering one, thanks!

    Definitely...no prob. You'll have to play with placement a little to get a good location for it and optimal effect. The tripod it comes with is dinky, but actually works great if you can tuck it in a corner and have no obstruction to the ceiling surface. It's a nice little touch...not too much, and just enough. Drives my two boxers friggin nuts though. LOL.

    I can tell you how to light up that arcade sign with battery operated lights if you want the info and if any one wants one already done for 125 bucks plus shipping let me know, that arcade sign is no longer being sold and fetches 75 by itself on ebay.

    Very cool, runs on batteries ?
    Could I send you my exact sign as new condition for a swap program and a bit cheaper for yours ?

    The rectangle represents approximately 2 extra inches on each side of the head, roughly

    (1) Not a bowling fan and (2) I didn't like those little lamps installed in the middle of the letters at the arcade sign...

    Not really a gameroom pic, but it's something I made for my gameroom. I didn't want to start a new thread for this, yet I still felt like sharing it on Pinside. Maybe someone will be inspired.

    Conscious of the fact that Medieval Madness is, both, out of my budget and out of my capacity (I only have room for 4 games, apart from the basement, but it's damp and floods often, while also being tough to get the games down there, so I don't want to keep them there. I've got a TZ, TOTAN, picking up a CFTBL on Thursday, and the last one will be a TAF), I still felt like I want it in my gameroom somehow. I remembered that I have a MM mini-translite, and I've come up with this:

    IMG_1032 (resized).jpg

    Basically, I've called this a minibackbox, which I intend to hang on the wall of my gameroom. As you can see, I also have the mini-translites for TOM and AFM, which will also be used for minibackboxes as it looks rather nice. The project is not finished yet, I'm looking into some solution for a "miniDMD", or at least a way of having the title screen showing up nicely. The speaker panel "grille" also needs installing. It works pretty much like a normal backbox, in that I can remove the translite and access the stuff inside (I intend to put an Arduino board running a very basic lightshow in it. Considering either standalone 9V batteries or powering it up through a normal socket). A short description of the project for anyone who wants a read:

    I started off by measuring the backbox and scaling it down to fit the translite. The scale factor was x0.388. I assembled the backbox by cutting it out of 6mm plywood pieces cut to match the individual pieces of the genuine backboard. They were glued together using both hot glue and standard wood glue.
    After that was done, I created the DMD/speaker panel in Google SketchUp using the same scaling. I exported the SketchUp file to an .stl file for 3D printing and sent the part off for printing. I was extremely happy with the results, and also happy with 3D printing (it's the first time I've done it and it's something I'm looking into for a TAF project I intend to undertake over the summer).
    Next, I found the backbox decals for MM. There was a problem with them since they appeared to be cropped slightly, so the backbox decal on the minibackbox isn't identical to the real one (it's stretched to fit the wood). I also made a Williams logo decal, since extruding it in SketchUp was an absolute nightmare, and it would stand out 0.5mm, so it'd be barely noticeable anyway.
    Lastly, I cut a "trench" in the inside of the top of the backbox for the minitranslite to slide in like it does on an actual game. I've attached two pieces of balsa across the length of the inside of the top to keep it in place. When all the woodwork was done I sprayed 5 layers of black, then I glued the speaker panel with hot glue into the minibackbox once the paint had dried. After that, I applied the decals. The last step of the manual stuff will be to get a layer of clearcoat onto it. I applied very little hot glue since the panel fit in snug, so it'll come off for the clearcoating. When that gets done I'll create all the light-related stuff and program my Arduino to perform a very basic lightshow.

    IMG_1034 (resized).jpg

    As a finishing note, I'm really happy with the way this came out. For someone like me, limited by both space and money in a hobby I love, this is a very elegant solution to supplement a game room with games I most likely won't ever have (unless I win the lottery or something...). Sorry for rambling on and on like this, I'll shut up now.
