Art Work sent off to Souldraw.com
Going for an orange base
This is the Control Panel and Marquee.

Looks great! Did you check how the CP looks with joystick and buttons on it? E.g. don't they interfere with the images?
Spent weeks on the artwork, some buttons will cover bits here and there but have got it the best I can
  :applaud:

Souldraw.com looks like a very cheap alternative for GameOnGrafix. They have backlit material for marquees and "Non Skid Decal - Frosted Vinyl Floor Sticker" as alternative for GoG's polycarbonate laminated CP's. Do you (or anybody else) have experience in their quality?

Price wise there was nobody even close especially in Australia, I was looking at triple the price for next cheapest. It's definitely worth the risk for me, others have recommended them so I will try them out
I'm very curious to see the result  :o

Polycarbonate sheet bent for control panel:



Went to a local plastics factory and they were able to put the bend in for me.
Tried do it myself on some off cuts, got really close to being able to get it right but kept getting some burn bubbles in it, I was going to make up a jig and try and do it myself but was not worth it if, especially if I damaged it and was not happy.

Shouldn't the edge be more rounded? (both the CP and the polycarbonate)

great to see this build coming along - sorry i couldn't reply earlier - looks like your got this project by the ball bearings  :applaud: 
My art is always free for you to download and modify as you see fit...
Why?... because I could never find any art I loved on the net. So I played around with Photoshop and wish to share it with the arcade community.

Well here's mine too, I have no idea what question it will answer but since we are tossing pics of own builds in threads..

Did you guys not know?

EMDB = Emulate My Damn Build

Maybe next time just toss in a link to your build so it wont steal this mans glory  :cheers:
There's no need to get rude. I just want to help and yes I use quite often pictures from my own build to visualize my response. This build is even based on the same design as mine. Very childish to "If you post yours I will post mine".

I will not waste more time on your response...

Point totally missed here, sorry you got your feelings hurt  :dunno

If you plaster your build in someone elses thread its called a blind hijack (or a hey look at mine), apparently you do this often.  I just mentioned hey post a link to your build and let him go see it, that way your finished build doesnt take away from his project.  I posted mine just to poke fun...Lighten up  >:D

Anyhow dont see how i'm rude and childish, we all know your proud of your project, we've all been there done that, LOL, stop tooting your own horn man.

This convo bores me...... on to better things...

KICK ASS build my man, keep up the good work......CARN the Hawkers, shag the woman, Eat at Joes!!!!!!! :cheers:

Did some work on my start up panel and audio. The Start up panel will be hidden under the control panel.

First Button turns PC On/Off. This was quite simple have hocked up a LED to come off the PC.
Second button turns LED TV On/Off. Spliced into the Standby rail of the TV so I can now Turn the TV on/off very easily. Was also able to get into the Service Mode of the TV there was a option that allows the TV to turn on from AC. This means when I turn the main cabinet switch on the TV comes up automatically.
Third Button turns the Audio On/Off. Was able to swap the original switch and found a 5v rail on the amp and connected an LED to it, so that now comes on which is good.
I disconnected the Volume pot and extended the wire slightly, so now am able to control the volume quite easily.
Lastly I put a USB connector connected to the PC

I mounted the Amp PCB and Power Supply to the side of the cabinet and stuck a power board to the back of the unit.

Art Work has arrived.
Finished off the Control Panel, used 12mm MDF for the bottom and a 3mm Polycarbonate for the top.

Vinyl has arrived from Souldraw, and was really easy to stick on.

That looks fantastic. The portraits on the front of the panel really work well.

Why didn't you tilt the top of the CP a bit?

I'm happy with the layout, had a few test games and feels really comfortable plenty of room as well.

The artwork on the front looks great but the only two characters at the top are completely disrupted by the sticks and buttons and almost all space around the controls is "empty". I know Positioning the artwork around the controls is not an easy job...

Cool looking build...   Not to nitpick, but just wondering a couple things.  Why did you go with JLW sticks?  I mean, its a good stick and all.  I use them myself on my 4 way cabs, but if you are going 8way and in a fighting cab the JLF's are so much better!  If you plan on staying with the JLW's I believe they sell longer joystick shafts for under mount situations like yours, so that your joysticks are not so stubby.  Also you are running a widescreen monitor on a computer powerful enough to run USFF, why not add 2 more buttons per player for a total of 8 each so you can play that game in all its arcade edition glory!  Jus sayin'!

Lookin' pretty sweet, man. I dig it.  :applaud: :applaud:



Damn you people with your fancy wiring.  :D

Tru dat LT.  My first wiring job looks like...well its crap.  My second one looks 100x better. 

FR - Watch the front edge of the plexi glass.  I've knicked myself a couple of times on my weecade.  I see now why people bend plastic over the whole thing.  Something you might want to consider down the road.  Either way it's a really sharp cab.  Good work.

Love the control panel. Been looking into ordering from souldraw.
What kind of vinyl did you go with?

Thanks.

For the Control Panel and Sides  used the Vinyl Sticker (Black Adhesive)

and for the marquee used Backlit PVC Film

I can't be happier with the end result it has come up exactly how I wanted it. The angle of the photo does no do it justice.
Ken and Chun-Li face's are visible which is what I wanted and the buttons blend into the rest of the head, absoultly rapt how they line up. And the VS graphic in the middle fills out the rest of the panel.
Will post a better top view pic soon.

Hi
I am honestly not a massive fan of an over crowded CP, I like the 6 button layout. I have left enough space for extra 2 buttons in the future but don't think I will be using them.
For the joysticks, this is my first build so all trial and error for me. Most if not all the game time on this machine is going to be for 2 players so as long as it's fair for each I am happy.
The only things I want to change is get red and blue dust covers and handles if any one can let me know were to get?

Thanks, I have just tried as hard as I can to draw some blood, no luck  :). Edges on this product are not sharp at all, infact the material is very soft and easy to work with the drill bit was going in like it was butter, but on the flip side it doesn't seem to scratch easily cause I haven't left any scratches on the surface.

This is the product I used, bought it from Bunning's

Awesome build and artwork! :applaud:

Sooo I was just looking at souldraw.com and... are those prices for real? it's like a $1.50 for a 17 x 10 CPO and 80 cents for a marquee on backlit pvc film. The shipping and processing is 14 bucks for each, but that doesn't seem right. GOG is 5 times that. I'll have to research more before I order my artwork to see where to get it from.

Email him for a price, my postage ended up more then what was quoted on the website but it was still reasonable.
I can't compare quality cause I have never physically seen anyone else's work, but looks ok to me. The vinyl could have been thicker but u get what u pay for I guess.

Doesn't look like a big deal, but rapt with my coin bucket, been searching for days for something that was the right fit and that was some type of metal.
I ended up finding a peg box from the Reject Shop that fit perfecty, painted it up and add a pieces of foam to the bottom.



Had to set it all up to make sure it worked and to hear how it sounded when the coins dropped in,  :applaud:. Rapt with it sounds just right.



Coin Door with final paint job.

I've seen these pinball covers that look good, but can't seem to find arcade cab ones.
