  1. This site has some interesting tidbits about Williams arcade machines, including a multi-game cabinet that runs real (not emulated) versions of Joust, Sinistar, Robotron, Splat, and Bubbles. http://www.seanriddle.com/willy2.html#pics Why do this? Well at the time (and possibly today as well) there were slight differences in blitter operations between the real machines and the emulated versions. Here's an excerpt: In older versions of MAME and in several xx-in-one boards, blits happen pretty much instantaneously, unlike the real games where the Special Chips have a maximum throughput of 1 MB/second (not counting the time it takes to write to the registers to start the blit). This results in games that appear normal at the beginning levels, but become much harder at the later levels. Robotron can have so many enemies on screen at once that all cannot be moved in one video frame. So the game moves as many as possible, then moves the rest in the next frame. With an "instantaneous blitter", all the enemies can be moved in one video frame, making the game play much faster. ... About 13% of the blits had different results in MAME than on the real game, and about 11% of the blits took a different amount of time in MAME than on the real game. I'm sure that these blits represent a very small proportion of blits done in actual game play, but they may still contribute to game play anomalies. http://seanriddle.com/blitter.html ​ Defender and Stargate are included in the cabinet too, although those two don't actually implement blitter code.
  2. From the album: Custom Arcade

    This was our first arcade. It has the 60-in-1 on the left, a 108-in-1 in the back, and a modded XBOX with all the fixins with an X-Arcade compatible monstrosity. It was too big to move out of that room and was later disassembled and scraps and electronics were used to build the "Big Play" cabinet.

  8. This is more or less for the locals, but I have a sit-down Neo-Geo MVS cabinet I am looking to sell. The monitor works and the MVS board includes a 120-in-1 multicart. Both joystick panels work (Player 1 stick and buttons were replaced with new parts; new parts will be included for Player 2 side in case you want to install them). Includes cash box, but there are no locks on the coin door (cheap fix). I'm looking to get $300 for it (firm). If you are interested, send me a PM. I am located in Fairfax, VA. I live on the second floor, but this is pretty lightweight and I can easily strap it to an appliance dolly and take it down on my own. Will probably be willing to trade towards console video game items, but cash is nicer.
  9. Hello, I'm new to the forum. I recently completed this project. Built it from scratch. I've converted gutted arcade cabinets in the past, but I never did anything like this before. I think it turned out well. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!

  12. After years of hunting for a maching that the price is right for it's condition, AND is close enough to not cost a ton to move it (as much as I like my car, there is no way my poor little Hyundai is moving a cab) I found one. I paid someone $10 to move it for me, and that's it. I was happy, they were happy they didn't have to pay to get rid of it. The machine is in SAD shape. It's been stored in a carriage house for years, and took on some water damage. The plus side to the water damage, the back was easy to pry off, found just shy of $30 in quarters! The cab gods want this machine to live! It's currently an off-brand billiards game. There's stickers all over it from small cab maintenance & sale companies. It's changed hands several times, and I think rebuilt each time. After studying it for a few days, I've come to the conclusion it started life as an Atari Berzerk Cabinet. Since It's been gutted so many times, I think I'm just going to go all-out on a MAME cabinet I don't see ANY potential collectors' value. After a inspecting wiring (and disconnecting the original transformer which was still getting power for some reason, just not outputting to anything) I gave her some juice! The light came on, but nothing else. I double checked a few failsafe switches, and fed it come currency hoping I could get a noise, and prove the screen dead, but nothing nothing. It think it's the new power supply. However, I don't have a comparable replacement available. I'm really torn right now. I want to fix it, just for the experience. I'm really uncomfortable working around the CRT, and would rather just gut it, and sell the boards. (Or trade/gift the boards since I can't verify condition) Thoughts/opinions? I'll add pictures when I can. If anyone has any useful links ot MAME threads, that'd be appreciated too!
  13. Hi guys. I am a new member here, but I wanted to give the AtariAge members first dibs on this Kiosk before I list it on eBay. I have looked through the forums, and it appears the last Kiosk sold in 2014, but I don't see what price it sold for, and one in 2013 for I am assuming $750. I don't think one has popped up since then. This kiosk does not have the built in brain board. I purchased this from an older couple who got it from a K-Mart in 1986. It has been sitting in their basement ever since, and does show some signs of wear, but nothing major. Most damage as you will see in the photos is along the front control panel laminate. There is some moisture damage on the underside at the base in the rear, but you can't even see it when up against a wall. Also, it appears to be missing two of the bottom shelves, but a piece of MDF would suffice in replacement, it is pretty basic. T-molding all looks pretty decent, plexi has some scuffs but not too bad. Around the control panel there is some staining from what looks like Pepsi or something, but not too bad. I tried to clean it the best I could but with a little extra work I'm sure it could be restored further. The controls work great. In fact, it makes playing 2600 enjoyable lol. The paddles might need a shot of electronics cleaner, but they both still function fairly well. It is currently stationed in my garage, up on pallets. The featured photo shows it all decked out with merchandise (and photoshopped into a nicer looking room rather than a garage, lol) - sorry, games not included. Please click the imgur album link to see more photos. Included is the kiosk itself, the gnarly Sony Trinitron, and the 2600 console. I am in the Springfield/Dayton area in Ohio, and I assume most of you would prefer to pickup so you could see it in person first - but if I can get close to my price I might consider doing a delivery, make a weekend out of it. It would be delivered disassembled of course (assembly is like 12 screws). Here is my eBay user account if you'd like to check my feedback/whatever; http://www.ebay.com/usr/poisongoomba Link to imgur album with more photos: http://imgur.com/a/auJBu Please feel free to ask me any questions about it. I don't have a lot of room to store it, and I would love it to go to a good home where it can be preserved. Thanks! EDIT: I currently have a standing offer for $1500, the buyer wants to meet me in September. So I will put a hold on until then.

  17. I've been absent from the forums for a while now, but I've still been working on projects. I thought of a crazy idea when I bought a new flat screen 25 inch tri-mode CRT monitor and I knew a welder that was out of work. Build an aluminum arcade game cabinet of course! Unlike traditional arcade cabinets that use heavy particle board as both structural components and covers, the aluminum arcade cabinet has an aluminum endoskeleton frame that provides all structural support with covers being just covers. This allows the side covers to be made of almost anything. This arcade cabinet weighs about half what a traditional particle board arcade game cabinet weighs. Plus it's on wheels. I still have much to do: all wiring add shelf for mounting arcade PCBs and electronics add hinged door for access to electronics and PCBs cut and mount remaining aluminum diamond plate side covers mount stereo 2 way 4 x 6 speakers somewhere buy, cut, and mount lexan sheet for the upper side / rear / top side covers. Cut and mount a bezel surrounding the screen add lighted box for adding marquee (optional) add coin door (optional) I'll keep updating the progress.

  23. Costo is now carrying an arcade cabinet for $2500 Canadian. There is a functioning model on display. Has a lot of great games (Berzerk, Frenzy, Robotron, Ghost'n Goblins, Bubble Bobble, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition) as well as a few stinkers (Double Dragon 3, about 30 versions of Golden Tee). I played for like an hour. Managed to make it up to M. Bison as easily as I remembered, and came within a few pixels of victory, but he can get pretty cheap. One thing that was odd was that the sound seemed different than I remember. But maybe that's just because I got so used to the SNES version. Not sure. Sorry for the unsteady camera, but you should still be able to make out the list of games in the pictures at the links below. 1. http://oi60.tinypic.com/302s31w.jpg 2. http://oi62.tinypic.com/jpjteg.jpg 3. http://oi62.tinypic.com/a431p1.jpg 4. http://oi61.tinypic.com/feqo12.jpg 5. http://oi57.tinypic.com/2k11ft.jpg
  24. http://youtu.be/tpUaw4cooc8 We document our building and renovating a cheap stand-up arcade cabinet into a death metal black MAME arcade machine for the Game Room! The original cab is a Centipede machine, front end for MAME is Hyperspin and the controller is the X-Arcade Dual Joystick I don't like being called the "Beer Bitch"... But I won out in the end.
  25. I've wanted to build a MAME cabinet for a long time and finally got started. I intend it to run mostly MAME, atari800, and stella. It'll be powered by a Raspberry Pi and use a 19" 1280x1024 LCD monitor. It's going to have a modular panel, like the one Rick Reynolds (here on AtariAge) built, and another one with smaller component panels. It's going to be styled like a Tempest cab; I have a sketchup based on the original dimensions, but modified a bit to make it a bit easier to cut out and build. The control panel is going to be 24" wide, and will have a bunch of smaller panels that can be swapped in and out. There are panels with 4", 5" and 7" widths, and this is a mockup of the control panel section because I wanted to experiment since I'm still not quite sure what the best way to lock the panels down securely will be: Each of the little panels has a quarter inch plywood tongue on the bottom that locks into a groove on the front of the cabinet, and another tongue at the back that I think I'll try to lock down with a hinged board that will lock into place, holding the top of the panels. Here's a view with one of the panels removed: and a closeup of the two panels I've built so far: So, I'm sure this build will take a while, but maybe by posting my progress it will help keep me motivated.
