    ^ thats a nice tv stand. you could mount a heavier tv on something like that? like a 42"-46" plasma?

    I brought the Stand from a BJ's Ware house store for $150 and Came with a free 6ft HDMI Cable. It can hold up to a 50 inch TV.

    Time to post mine.

    Looks nice, bro.

    Hey, I don't want to be a pest, but keep an eye on your television and sound bar when using your fireplace. The heat and soot is really bad for them. The sales rep that I bought my Samsung from used to be a head rep at SoundTrack and a television repair specialist for the company, nationwide. He told me that the majority of television repairs he did were from soot buildup inside the casings and all over the PCBs. He said in about half of the cases, they would overheat due to this as well as heat damage from rising heat due to having the unit mounted above a fireplace. You may want to make or buy some slip covers for them when using the fireplace.

    Excellent tip, and something everyone should know, but it looks like its a gas fireplace, not a wood burning one. I had three of those in my last place, looked very similar to them. Heat may still be an issue, but it looks far enough from it to survive.

    My very modest setup. Better than using a garbage SD tv though.

    No offense but the last pic with the component rack could use some tidying up with the cables.

    Hey guys, not sure where i can ask but i think this would be the best place to put it since some of you guys have some good taste. I need your suggestion in making my game room neat & tidy so the asian wife wont be so mad w/ my new purchase.

    My gameroom is 12(L)x10(W) Here is my old setup

    When i get my Daytona 2 cab next week, there is no way i can fit it in here, so im going to do a complete makeover.

    Things being removed
    * Glass desk w/ sides
    * Sony 40" Bravia
    * Italian Futon

    Pretty much everything will be gone except the Daytona USA cab & SFII cab...Any ideas on how i should set it up?

    The pioneer kuro,, yes. It looks great via RGB, very vibrant and smooth. It also has a game pref mode so it eliminates all post processing, giving me lag free fighting. Also I have my dreamcast hooked up via VGA running at 480p. Since the kuro is such a good panel games like sonic adventure 2 look almost HD, the game can almost fool you in being a modern release in a way with its sharp vibrant textures.

    I almost got one of these machines for free on craigslist lol.....

    I'll be moving soon and having to re-do my Gameroom. I think the cabs always look better right next to each other like in an arcade.

    Free? Are you serious, was there any problems with the Daytona cab? That would be like winning the lottery!

    Running into more problems, looks like i have to take both cabs apart to fit it in the gameroom. Not looking forward to that at all!
  • EVAWINGZEROEVAWINGZERO Slacktivismist Extraordinaire Joined: Posts: 2,229
    Yes, it was free on Craigslist in the Tampa Bay area. The only documented problem was the left monitor "Flickered". Easily fixed with a Capacitor Kit. By the time I called, it was already gone....... Still kinda bummed about it...

    rcaido, I can't tell the exact dimensions, but if I'm right on my guess, leave the CE cab as it is, and put the Daytona cab where the futon is, that was it's not right next to the window. No sense of risking putting it by the window, even with the blinds closed, there will be that slight amount of glare.

    I think i have an idea on the setup already, thanks though. Well i ended up clearing out everything except for SF cab last night. So the DAytona cab is room ready!

    So my next thing i want to add is 2 candy cabinets. Which would you recommend?

    Not sure about the candies. Im thinking of just getting a Neo Geo cab instead & then build a sit down cab for next gen. I have someone local who has a Neo Geo Cab 4-slot for sale for about $550. Comes w/ Samsho, Real Bout Fatal Fury 2, & Golf game...Is this a good price or should i wait?
  • SNAAAAKESNAAAAKE WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!? Joined: Posts: 13,115 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    why bother with games? I think 550 for a neogeo cabinet is rather high. you could just throw in a $40 original xbox in there and have ALL neogeo games through fba emulator. Id say get an empty cabinet and mame it with an original xbox. muuuch cheaper and use the funds to build the next gen sitdown cabinet. most Id pay for a neogeo cabinet is $300. offer him that and chances are he'll sell it.

    He could probably sell on the 4 slot + the games for about $200 so meh. And I'd go with a PC for MAME over an original Xbox - just preferance though.

    I guess i'll hold off with the Neo-geo arcade. I guess i got all excited cuz the asian wife actually gave the ok to make a man cave arcade room! I always love the Neo Geo cabinets but the fighting games were pretty shitty except for Shamsho. I really want to just get it for the shumps & puzzle games.

    Yeah i already have a modded xbox from awhile back. Has all the emulators needed...Was going to be used for a cocktail cabinet project for my two girls. Its still in the garage unfinished...No father of year award for me...

    I should just focus on Daytona right now, making sure it makes it safe this Thursday. i'll post up pics! Just 4 more days!

    I also have a home theater setup in the same room, but I'm still finishing everything off.

    Hey dash how much did you pay for the Time Crisis 2 cabinet? Is $550 for 2-player a good price? What's the dimension on that motha?

    go new astro city, it's an astro city with better speakers.

    astro city's are the classiest of those you listed and really one of the most classy out there, and the new astro city adds better sound. The Aero is cool if you want something REALLY retro, but they are very old, and more of a 80s feel and less cool than an astro IMO.

    Looks like a no go with Time Crisis, one of the monitors isnt working. I dont want to deal with that, plus its way to big. Any of you guys own a pinball machine? Im thinking of picking one up one of these days..

    Funnily enough the TC2 cab was $100. A friend and I went to pick up the red counterpart for $400, the guy mentioned he had the blue half but it wasn't working so I offered him a bill for it and to my surprise, when I got home, found out it worked perfectly.

    It has a 27" monitor and is pretty big, but not bulky so it fit right in. Luckily I have a 14' ceiling, so height isn't an issue.
