On the last play on NFL Blitz?! What a shocker.

Quoted from Mudflaps:

I built a bomber themed cab that now resides elsewhere. I missed it but didn't feel like going through all that ass pain again so I purchased materials from recroommasters.com and a Tankstick from X-Arcade. Coupled with a cheap flatscreen and a modded XBox, I'm in business again.

Mudflaps, What Xbox did you use? I've had a modded original for years & was thinking of doing the same as you using that, but I also have a 360 that I could use.

#158 4 years ago

I used a modded original. Upgraded hard drive with CoinOps, Visionary, and a bunch of other stuff. Works great and super cheap.

#159 4 years ago

How'd you connect to the LCD monitor? Just composite?
Was it a PITA configuring the Tankstick? Do the games have to be configured independently?

#160 4 years ago

I just used a regular HDTV with component cables. Tankstick is idiot proof and connects directly to the XBox. Every game is mapped the same, so essentially the Tankstick works like a flattened XBox controller. No configuration needed.

#161 4 years ago

Sweet. I'm going to have to get a tankstick & try it out. Maybe making the cab will be a winter project.

Upgraded my computer. 4 TBs of games in an external hard drive now running the newest version of Hyperspin with a great graphics card. Plays all the arcade games plus NES, SNES, 64, Sega, game cube, dream cast and two dozen other systems. I have an Xbox wireless receiver and four Xbox controllers to play systems like the Dreamcast, PSP and GameCube.

Been playing around with Rainmeter for the display.

Have a hdmi splitter to play the MAME games on my den tv using the wireless controllers.

We are putting in led buttons next.

Looks great! Did you do RGB LEDs or just single color?
I'm making a new MAME setup from an used showcase cab. I'm gonna start with just 2 player setup with 1 gun, then add a second gun later. I'd be tempted to add couple more stick (4 player) later down the road.

Do you have any guns? I'd love to get feedback on them.

#166 3 years ago

I went rgb on players 1-4 buttons and color matched for each player. I'll prob go led joysticks next.

I have two light guns. Bit of a pain to set up but work great now.

I just swapped out the speakers that came with the arcade:

It's coming along nicely. Got a kickass intro video loaded for Hyperspin and I'm messing around with LED Blinky:

bumping thread, been getting requests for builds when I get back from deployment. This thread has a lot of good examples of systems people may want in near future.
