What you have planned for the burgertime controller looks good. Mario brothers would be cool as well. I am interested depending on price of course.

You once told me Arcade controller was not ideal for you
So I guess you will vote NO, anyway

you can clearly see what this project looks like in one my videos on youtube where I show the Mario Bros Arcade Controller
I mean, what else needed? Just take a look at your favorite arcade game, check the control panel and you got the idea

Aaah, that's what I was waiting for. :)

Pretty cool idea actually. That Mario Bros one looks awesome. :D

My question at this point would be: Would it be difficult to have an Arcade Controller with interchageable cover plates or overlays?

I watched the video where you show the mouse trap controller and pepper shaker buttons for a burgertime one. The mario controller looks great in this video. I can't vote from my phone but I will later at home. Anyway I am very interested.

It would .... But most arcade use different control layout
Could be done with some like (DK, DKjr)

But honestly, I would not to that

Yep, those are planned .... Well, for me at least, if there is lack of interests, wich seems the case

It's Thanksgiving here is the States, so I'd give it a little more time to judge interest. I'm on the fence, but will not delay my vore for too long.

Watched the video to refresh my memory and while that Mario Bros. controller looks incredible, I wouldn't be interested due to the probable high cost and the fact that the Arcade Quality Controller is plenty good for me. Although, I do like PixelBoy's idea of Overlays if something could be figured out for use with the ACQ you produced.

I'm the same, if the controller could be more flexible with overlays for specific games then I'd be interested.  This would be best combined with more buttons to cater for a wider selection of games.  Alternatively, how about simply producing an adaptor for the X-Arcade to connect to a ColecoVision and then producing overlays for the X-Arcade?

Would this be a two player control panel or a single?

In this case, it'll depend on the original controller itself
In example. Donkey Kong would be a one player panel while Mario Bros would be a 2 players

But judging by the lack of interests (wich I understand)
I will not go on with this project

I will do the regular CollectorVision AQC , maybe a 2 players version this time ;)

Having studied in woodworking (mainly Tenon-Mortise assembly) .... This kind of project would be a walk in a the park
Although, my main concern is the molded plastic part wich I would like to be an exact replica (using vaccuforming)
Artworks has already been done for a couple of years now, Thanks to my friend Mike for providing me some good pics

For now, I don't have any space to work and on top of that, I already have Arcade cabs in my living room and I really need a house......... So I can put much more cabs ;)
Otherwise, I would seriously pissed my wife ;) :P



EDIT: This's one of the projects I was doing when I studied in woodworking

Ok, for the 2nd batch of Arcade Controller, I've decided to make 2 Players Controllers only
Half of the batch will be Arcade games based.... In example DK, Pacman
The other half will be like the first batch but in 2 players version , while only 1 keypad will be present on the controller

The Arcade games based controller will NOT have keypad but you can easely plug a regular controller in the back of the Arcade Controller

You will also be able to have exact arcade game based controller replica
In example, you want a reproduction of Mouse Trap arcade controller, wich is pretty unique BTW
Or let's say, Burgertime featuring the two pepper buttons
Those controllers are for the hardcore i must say ;)

Finally, you choose! Microswitch, leaf switch , 8 way joystick, 4 way joystick, well.... Your choice!
If you are interested to be on the reservation list, post your interest here
