Were here I am getting ready for EVO 06. This is the first of my new style of cabinets. I have streamlined them a bunch and made the controller swapping ability much easier to do.
I will update this as I go.
Here are the first set of pics.
Here is the over all size of it.
44" wide 25.5" high 27" deep. This is slightly smaller then my original cabinet i build back in Aug 05.
One of the main design changes i made was to make it easier to swap out the joystick. I was able to accomplish this with out much of a prob. Each stick will have a lip that will slide under the side of the cabinet to secure that side down. On the other side it will have a chamber lock that will lock the controller to the cabinet. I think it is the most efficient way i could do this.
Here you can see the lip was was talking about.
Here you can see that i added a cubie hole to hold the arcade board. This will make it much easier to swap games on the fly.
And the last change was to make the controller panel much smaller. It is 12" x 7" now.
Here you can see the size difference.
I would consider the Version 1.5. As there are still a few bugs to work out. But for the most part this will be exactly what you will see at evo from me. I will have 4 at EVO 06.
Well this is finished as well. And i took some pics before the guys comes to pick it up.
Here is a pic of all 8 pcb’s. And you can see the Jamma harness in this as well. It is quite the mess ill tell you.
The color was not my choice. But it looks ok.
Here is a pic of the US pannel. You can see that there is a lock on them now. Ive made it so the pannel just sits into a cubby hole and is surounded on all 4 sides and does not move. After it is in place you just lock it down.
That is about it.
