My Mame - SF themed cab

Post by TeamTEOR » November 12th, 2009, 1:29 am

I have been working on this cab forever, but it is getting close to being done. It does get a fair amount of use for its current condition. I am planning on making a larger control panel for it. Presently the current control panel lifts up and out with out any fuss. I am using a KeyWiz, so detaching is simple. just two PS/2 cables.

I got the cab cheaply since it had a fair amount of water damage, here is a before pic. There was about a week of bondo work needed to bring it up to par. During that time the diamond plate was ordered as well.

Here is the empty but fixed pic.

Here is the after pics with it running.

The monitor is a BilLabs 25 inch through an ArcadeVGA card. The PC has a 2ghz proc, and 2 gb of ram. I use Maximus Arcade 2.10 as the front end.

There is an interesting story about the artwork. The artist is someone I met in person, and she had given me full permission to use this artwork on my cab, all I had to do was send her pics so that she could show her family. When we did finally met up at a local Comic Book Convention she and her husband greeted me with open arms, and as if I was family. Needless to say, my wife was stunned at how I was greeted. While visiting with her, I purchased some more of her art work as well, and periodically we still keep in touch.

Welcome to Mameaddicts,

I am loving this cabinet. One of the best looking cabinets I have seen in a while. The artwork is great, and I especially love the huge marquee area. You can probably put a small lcd in there and have countless Mame marquees displaying as you run individual games.
Great job!! :clapping: :clapping:

Man, that thing is freakin sweet. It makes me want to make an arcade like that. I don't know what I'd have for artwork though, I'd probably have to dig up some SNK vs. Capcom artwork because I like both companies equally.
