After seeing Cigarbob’s rig at the first EVO World in Las Vegas in 05’, be and my friends were inspired to do the same thing for 06’ with Neo*Geo hardware:
It has a Neo*Geo MVS four-slot hooked to (MVS-style) JAMMA harness, video-out (RGB -> S-VHS) is provided by a Neobits converter.
The final result was a bit rushed, we juuuuust bairly made it there for the last day of Evo World 06’. The top CP and back door are jankey, and need to be re-done. I don’t like the paint-job, and I want to sand it off and re-paint it in the worst way. Fortunately, everything that I think is crap is fixable. It was a good first-attempt, considering my realitive experience-level working with wood at the time, and the tools I had available (all hand-tools: a Circular saw, a handdrill, a saber-saw and a Dremel).
The next year, for Evo World 07’, I threw together the blue:
Again, it has a Neo*Geo MVS four-slot hooked to (MVS-style) JAMMA harness, video-out (RGB -> S-VHS) is provided by a Neobits converter.
I skilled-up and tooled-up a bit, and the results came out much better. The CP lid is jankey because I couldn’t find the right type of hinges, and again, I don’t care for how the paint-job came out (although, it looks good in pictures, and in-person too, unless you look reeeeealy close).Once I get the right hinges, and re-do the CP to my satisfaction, I’ll be done with it.
I got a bunch more pics, of the internal guts and stuff that I can put up if anyone asks, but I really want to see other people’s stuff before I get started on supergun project #3.
