Well it is finaly finished. I bought a dvd-r and a ps2 yesterday hooke them up and started playing with all my friends. Swaping between ps2 and supergun is way to easy. I also bought a s-video signal spliter from radioshack so I can have my dvd-r hooked up with out it causing any signal lag. Here are the final pictures.
see you all at evo!
It is finished. Every thing worked with out any problems. I only have one pic for now but I will be taking a few more after work. Thank you all for the kind words and I hope to see you at evo. Im sure no one will have problem figuring out who I am.
Well after finishing off the other cabinet and sending to my friend I began work on my cabinet again. Today I have finished the Japanese stick and button controllers and ps2/snes pads for it. I am still working on the supergun part and the american stick and button controllers. I should have it done by next weekend.
Here are the pictures.
I will post more after I get my supergun working and the american sticks in. But so far it plays perfect!
Oh I cant wait for evo!
I knew I was a little nutty. But today I went over the line. I have had it in my head the last month to make a controller that no one will be able to beat. I have been making sticks for close to 10 years now. I made my first one back in '96 and it is still played on today. Here are a few pics of my day and the controller I made in 10 hrs.
Just kind of stupid. I unloaded the wood. Nothing special.
This pic is the first I took. I cut the sides out and then attached the top and put the bottom in to place. All though I have to admit that the bottom only happend like that cuz I cut it 1’’ to short for the back side.
I jsut cut out the access door for the back. I plan on getting a barrel lock and installing it in the door. Now I just need a hinge that screws in from the inside.
I installed shelfs in the cabinet beacuse I plan on having every thing self contained. There will be a PS2, SNES (yes a snes), VCR, Audio/video Reciver, and a SuperGun all self contained. I also plan on having the audio on the cabinet as well. I will mount 2 small speakers on the top and cut a hole in the front by the feet and put a sub woofer in.
On this one you can see that I am almost finished with all the roughf work.
Here is the main reason I am building this. I plan on taking it to evo. I know im insane. But I live 4hrs from Vegas and Im driving. I made this to be able to alternate between Jap and American setups. Each side can be Sanwa or Happ set up and the switching will take only 30 sec at most. In this pic you can see an American setup on the left and a Jap on the right.
It was a long day but im done for now. You can see it finished here. I flush cut all the joints and then use a 1/4 rounding over bit to take the edge off. I have lexan for each controller and the custom art is to come. I am painting it a dark Burgandy Red sunday.
Let me know what you all think.
Thanks. And I will update with progress over the next few weeks.
Just an update. I have only painted and sanded it so far. I have the 2 Wico P360’s that I will be using in it. These were given to me by John Biaon (sp?) Ex-Manager of SHGL they came out of a SFA3 cabinet back in 99 or so. As far as I know they only have about a month of use on them so they should be in good shape. Plus to have a piece of SHGL in my cab is just kinda cool. The color came out a bit more purple then I wanted. But it looks good. The pictures look more pinkish then it really is. I will be ordering the parts for the sticks and buttons this week and should have it done in the next two weeks.
I have been working with my friend and we have come up with the controller art. Granted its not as flashy as some of the stuff I have seen on here. But I am a simple guy. The art for both sets of stick will be the same except on the jap sticks there is a flag for Japan and Us has a US flag. When they are placed on the seam for each stick will be exactly between the V and S in the Vs. That way if p1 has US sticks he will have a USA flag and if P2 has jap sticks he will have Japans flag. Plus I have the side art as well for the left side.
