I figured we need a place for everyone to post their Arcade Cabinets. Custom Built, MAME Machines, Cocktails, Straight from the arcade, Whatever!!!

I've seen some really nice cab's here, but it's hard to find them all.

I'll start.

101_0996-1.jpg

This is my Dynamo 20" Street Fighter 2 Cab. Currently houses a PS2 with hacked DS1 pads under the CP.

101_0985.jpg

Up next is my Current WIP. It's a vewlix style cab using T5's as a CP. This should be done in a few weeks.

101_0874.jpg

Last is my MAME setup. Usually going for high scores in Donkey Kong. Had to build the CP from scratch. Pretty Stoked about how it came out.



Alright all, let's see some Cabs!!!

    I got one from a local arcade that was going out of business after I graduated high school for $200 :bgrin:

    The funny part is, I'm sure I spent well over $200 in quarters just playing SFII previous to that :blush:

    I don't think I've spammed this since adding new iL parts and cleaning it up a little. It has a TV in there before I am teh poor. I have it wired up for a PS2/Xbox1/Xbox 360. I primarily play shmups and old fighters/beat-em-ups on it.

    I'll have to take a pic of mine. It's nothing fancy, at all. Just a Neo-Geo in a standard black cabinet. But I dig it. Been trying to sell it forever, but I just can't seem to find the heart. :P

    A shot of the my nearly fully restored trio of MVS cabs at the soon to open Temple Games in Pawtucket, RI. Only thing left to replace is the EL panels on the Revision 1 4 slot to the right. All original carts. No boots or multis here. These things get a lot of use, and are well cared for. :)

    Here's my current cabinet, good ol' Astro City. Currently has an Ibara PCB inside, but I also have a SCART-JAMMA adapter so I can use it with my consoles as well.

    Oh good lord I'm going to have to stay away from this thread or I'll burst... I've wanted a cab since I was about 8! I might start building one, but it's going to look like steaming hot crud compared to these beauts.

    Hey bolt what are you using for that 3rd strike cabinet?The actual original CPS3 board,an emulator or what?I'm looking for one of those compilation PCB that has 3rd strike on it but I can't find one.This one has all the SF games on it apart from 3s.

    Lovely cabinets in this thread,maybe I will get one done in my lifetime at some point.

    no offense shin, but your aero cabinet is a mockery to candy cabinets everywhere.

    also, your ce cabinet looks like a mame cabinet. don't know why but it just has that feeling to it.

    Just so you know, those things aren't really "authentic" arcade hardware. They're glorified emulators.

    Yeah, thanks! At least I have a cab... these were bought off people who didn't know what they were doing or could not take care of them just FYI. Looks aren't everything, my friend. Post pics of your cab(s) Delight us with what you have to share with this thread. This isn't a 'best cabinet' contest or anything. Oh, and did you know that for an '87 cab... it looks a lot better than the rest of the Aero City cabs I've seen and there are hardly any left around. I've seen someone posted theirs, but it isn't original... meaning that they repainted it, replaced a few parts, and etc... anyway... thanks for noticing!

    Yea I read on neo-geo and arcadeotaku that those all in one boards are horrible for fighters. Frame rate drops make FGs almost unplayable.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    So basically the only options for authentic 3rd strike on a cabinet is to hook up a computer with Mame or get the original board?

    whats a repro panel? as in reproduced?

    Im under the impression its a stock new astro city panel. Im not sure as im still pretty noobish to arcade unit ownership so you might want to ask fubarduck, who i purchased it from.

    I actually want another cab though...im currently trying to sweet talk my parents into getting me a net city or an impress for my graduation this coming may. I need to get in touch with matsu...


    Im currently running vamp sav (phoenixed), and I have a puzzle bobble 3 kit.

    I would really like to make a h2h 3s setup but I think it would be a waste considering how shitty the cps3 is at life expectancy.

    so i may settle for a3.

    It depends on how authentic you want to be. A lot of people are of the view that if it's not arcade hardware, it not authentic. Others don't care that much.

    Me, if I made a mame cab, I'd use if for pacman and shit like that. For fighters, it's all about a dedicated board.

    But I'm anal.

    If you were meaning mine - They're JLFs. The big plate on the second cab is a Voltech mounting plates, and the sticks are bottom mounted to it.
