I would have liked to see a sit-down much like a Kraylix DIY cab but you made a good looking stand-up! Appropriately designed with core colors and the right arcade parts!

@thephantomnaut: I went though many different designs of arcade machines, including some sit-down designs. Ultimately I went with this design because its the one I have the most nostalgia for. And really this thing is only for me so I figured go with what I'm happy with.

stupid question but how were you able to link the buttons and joystick for the 360 to read? my guess is you used some form of premade board, soldered the button /joystick wires to the appropriate pins and that is connected via USB?

@optix12: My guess is that he either pad-hacked or just used a PS360+ board to hook it up solder-free.

Close. I bought 2 PS360+ boards, put those in my Madcatz fightsticks so I could use them on 360 and PS3, then put the original innards of the madcatz sticks into the arcade.

Really nice work!

I'd love to build a cabinet one day, but it's not all that feasible while living in an apartment.

I like it, despite the color scheme looking a little bleh to me. Good job, dude.

I'm curious what you don't like about the color scheme. It just the game in general or more my color's specifically?

Ah I see, I assumed you bought all those parts separately and worked them in with a PCB but I guess using a madcatz controller is much easier.

That is so awesome! I think for the hell of it you should put coin slots on the bottom front of it. Cause right now it looks strange to me without a coin slot on it.

I agree. I'll probably do that last once I'm completely satisfied with everything.

@jeanluc: I want to fuck you.

I mean, uh, so those fightsticks work with the PC too, right? So if you wanted to play some MAME games, you could put a computer of some sort in there and play them too, right?

uhhh... yes, they do work with a PC as well. I could and probably will at some point re-purpose this for a different game.

Fantastic piece of work.

No, It has fans in the back that vent the heat.

I don't know how to tell you this... Yukiko is my least favorite character. I'm sorry, I hope we can still be friends.

First thing I thought of too when I saw that. There's fans in the back of the cabinet you mean? Can't see em but good thinking.

Anyways looks fucking rad man I hope to someday own a cabinet.

That's ok, I felt the same way until Persona 4 Arena where my opinion completely flip flopped.

My college owns a large HP printer that they use for events. They let students use it cheap.
