#23

Now the butt of this thing looks sliiightly better


#24

If I ever get it I may do a bartop just by the inspiration from this


#25

I almost wish I wouldve gotten my hands on one of the Arcade1up cabs before starting this project haha. who knows maybe I still will sometime. but the one I have now is for another project :eyes:

I’m gonna try finishing this one sometime soon. its starting to get cold haha.

Thank you! (and iv lowkey thought about buying that)

Ok. So. I might be changing directions with this thing. So might have to change the title of this.
I stumbled upon something that wrecked my world view.

The arcade1up cab.

Original plan for this was to just have it to where I could hook up to the TV I have. and put it on some legs. But after tinkering with that tiny cab my aspirations have grown. I wondered if I should just get another 1up cab and convert it like my other side project I’m working on along side this. But it didnt make sense financially to throw away the work I’ve done.

So what if. wat if.
A custom sitdown Primal Rage cab???

basically with what I have, the hardest stuff is done. I just would have to make the base, and upper half to house the TV and marquee.

Maybe you can make something where you can slot it in and out so you have a choice between using it on tv and a cab. If I were you may want to look up blueprints for a cab instead of buying an arcade one up just to mod. Better quality wood for cheaper, you can put the screen you want to in it, and you dont have to worry about a board and cheap arcade parts that you have to figure out what to do with or sell or throw away. That’s just my opinion though.


#30

Yeah I mean with this I basically have most of the unit ready to go (CP, art, etc) I just gotta have the rest of the wood and finish it out lol. I thought about the slot idea. I might think of something.


#31

Yeah, I dunno about retrofitting an Arcade1up machine, since you already have the awesome stock CP already.

I’m going to second the “slot” idea, it’s something I sort of use for my custom arcade cabinet at home: the entire joystick and CP section is fully modular and slides out; controller PCBs are part of it as well as Neutrik ports, so it can be used as a standalone 2-player joystick set up.


#32

Yeah! Use the original panel!

BTW it looks SICK with Sanwa Buttons!


#33

I’m getting a whole flippin Cabinet and 2.3 revision board working for $125! Dude has too many other projects so he is selling it super low!


#34

dood thats the deal of a lifetime!! even a number like 300 wouldve have been great, congrats to you (:


#35

Thank you :smiley: What supergun do you have to connect this to the tv? Unfortunately the cabinet doesnt have a monitor so if I can get a tv on a black Friday deal I may just do that and pull the video signals to the suoergun/video converter to the tv. I think it needs a new subwoofer too. I may just get the supergun to play it until I can get the cabinet clean and new monitor, amp, woofer and decals.


#36

Holiday Sale* not Black Friday


#37

Any updates?


#38

I have a video converter to s-video from my Jamma harness. The regular composite output doesnt look that great with the converter. Theres also ones for VGA (the most common) and HDMI. You could find a decent computer monitor.

If you already got all the guts like the jamma harness connected to the buttons and pcb and working power supply you just have to convert the RGB output to something a TV or PC monitor can receive. you can go the crt route (probably harder to mount inside), or the PC or hdmi route.

And no updates at the moment BUT i do have some Primal Rage conversion kit sideart now so theres that :eyes:


#39

That’s cool cant wait to see the artwork. Unfortunately I dont have the room (or the money for that matter) to get the arcade machine. I think he has unfortunately sold it. If I could’ve just found it a bit earlier than Christmas time x.x
