The Arcade Designs and Builds Thread

Post by Sahadd Prawser on Wed Sep 13, 2017 12:01 am

This is a place where you can post resources on how to build your own arcade and concept ideas for finished products. I have most of the parts I need to set mine up but still have to build the box. I'm looking at a "pedestal" style arcade for space reasons. In the future you can always add a box and screen to it later so it is a nice option but for now I will hang a tv on the wall. I have some resources put together on my home computer with websites that offer measurements, blueprints etc and will get to posting those later.

Here is a link to a pedestal build:

And here is one you can just buy ( I'm not affiliated with any business or get any incentives to promote anything) :

At least this confirms that you can use USB devices for flight games and racing games. I just need to know what he means with "modified".

I dunno, I still like mine better, I still have a dynamic marquee and a controls screen over that guy. He has no spinners or coin slots on that!. I have wired guns with kickback (why they are not wireless) I have the steering wheel and foot pedals, but I don't want to connect it to my control panel and scratch my cp plexi Wink

I didn't want o put led lights everywhere because I wanted it to look like an arcade cabinet, not an amusement park..

I put mine into the cabinet build forum on here.

Slagcoin is a lifesaver. Anyone who wants to build their own project has to have that bookmarked for sure.

I saw this video years ago, the "modified" part is his amazing controller he built that does LED light + Rotary + TopFire.... incredible. He also did a super cool gun mod that looks legit.

I tried msging this guy, would love to see his work how he did the custom stuff.
