    Wow, that is impressive! What do you do for a living MK Source? Has to be gaming related to have a collection like that. I have three cabs myself. Slowly but surely growing the collection.

    Play Crimzon Clover, or go to hell.

    These are all nice. Do you have Shinobi? I thought you had MKX in a cab as well...

    VH238H it's basically an updated version of the original "evo" monitor. LED panel instead of LCD.

    I got 2 arcade showcase cabinets a few months ago for $300 one with virtua fighter 4 and empty tekken 3 cabinet that I still need to pickup. I donated the the virtua fighter(red one) to my local arcade. I might just donate the other one too because its alot of cabinet and my dorm room isn't that big

    It will eventually have a 70" tv wall mounted behind it.

    The first thing that I've noticed was the seamless transition between the control panel and the false front for the display/speakers; almost like the Corian products in those interior glamour magazines.
    Elegant, space-saving solution; pretty nice. How did you assemble the parts - contact cement?

    My wall mounted cab, made w PVC:
    Drew it in illustrator & cutted it w a cnc table Bended the curved part with a heat gun. It runs a Raspberry Pi 3B w AM.

    Amazing!

    @FreudlosPsyD , yeah it is seamless. The front, from the marquee down to the button parts was cut in one piece, I then molded/bented it with a heat gun and put pressure on it, let it cool down and stiff. I put a backlit vinyl behind the speaker curves/holes to keep the theme white. There are some generic pc speakers inside. Evertything is assembled from the inside, hidden. LOTS of glue / Mac10 paste.

    Technically this isnt a cabinet, so feel free to delete if against rules. But my latest build sorta lands somewhere inbetween a cab & a fighstick: Raspberry Pie 3B, Retropie w AM:

    Everything looks sweet until you open it up. The screen is way too small & button layout is just weird. You should use one of those quick release JLF. That way you can put a bigger screen. Do you have a blog on how you did it?

    @The_Dipkid I quite like it. But why did you choose that button layout? did you drill the holes into the plexi upside down?
  • The_DipkidThe_Dipkid Joined: Posts: 8
    @ProgressiveBalance Its based on the Hori V3 layout, (with like a 2-3 degree angle adjustment), it never occured to me that it was a super weird layout?

    @The_Dipkid
    Can you take a pic of the controls directly from the top? Maybe it's the camera and angle that's distorting it, but to chime in a bit, the button layout looks too angled and too spaced out (ie, the buttons are too far from each other). The "Hori V3" (you'll have to be more specific; not sure if you're taking about the Hori RAP V3, or the Hori FS V3) uses a standard Vewlix layout (or close), hence the "V" designation; it's just that, from the pics shown, it doesn't look like a standard Vewlix layout on your controls.
    Current at-home stick: Hori VLX Kuro (LS-40-01 + PS-14-K)
    Current portable stick: Mad Catz TvC (LS-40-01 + PS-14-KN)

    Cabinet: custom "Resistor" cabinet (32" LCD, X360, P1=LS-32-01 + PS-14-KN, P2=JLF + OBSC-30)
    Previous sticks: custom Happ CvS2 Double-sticks, custom Happ Hitomi-stick & Xenosaga-stick, custom Sanwa/Seimitsu Neptune-stick and Sylvia-stick, modded Mad Catz TvC, modded Mad Catz Brawlstick, modded Hori FSVX, modded Exar Exaprize

    Looking for:

    @FreedomGundam I meant the old ps3 hori v3 fight stick. I think thats what its name was. And youre probably right, i have made so many changes on my illustrator plans thru my different projects, its likely i spaced out the buttons at some time. Dosent matter to me though, can snap a pic when im home from vacation.

    ASUS 32" 1440p

    Was just looking for a 32" monitor, low input lag (of course), VGA input to run DC if I wanted too. That's really it lol.

  • jopamojopamo Stuck in Silly-con Valley Joined: Posts: 1,252
    Wow. I didn't know ASUS even made 1440p monitors in that size. Nice!

    mini 3s themed cab i built for a buddy this past fall. mix of american and candy cab styles. running a Raspi3 + recalbox.

    Did you mod it in order to allow Shin Gouki and Gill if it's an arcade board?
  • jopamojopamo Stuck in Silly-con Valley Joined: Posts: 1,252
    It's a Raspberry Pi running games on a version Final Burn Alpha on Recalbox OS.
