Hi guys, I wanted to post up my progress to gain a little encouragement and possibly get some good ideas from you all. I started building a MAME cabinet 1 week ago, cos I was stuck at home from work cos I caught the flu. Anyways, here are some progress pics, along with prices (AuD) and where I got the gear from. 24 inch LCD monitor - - $320 Logitech sound system - Harvey Norman - $270 Fluoro light tube - Bunnings - $30 Exhaust fan for kitchen or bathroom - Bunnings - $26 Cabinet, made out of pine sheets from Bunnings - 1829mm x 609mm x 17.5mm - $35 each From behind A view of the bottom of the control panel, once removed from the cabinet - you can see the right angle rods that hold it into place A view into the cabinet with the control panel removed Again, but from behind through the doorway The sub in place - the holes were cut with a jigsaw, so not so circular, but it shouldn't be visible later because I'm going to put a ring thing around the edges of it - I can't tolerate viewing such imperfect circles The ventilation fan The fan viewed from below The setup thus far: Where the marquee will go From behind Things I'm buying from here: http://www.ozstick.com.au/ include: I-PAC-4 Keyboard encoder These illuminated buttons I'm getting (from left to right on the control panel) 4 yellow for player 3, 8 red for player 1, 8 blue for player 2, 4 green for player 4 And these rectangular illuminated buttons, 1 of each colour, for the "player 1 start" and "player 2 start" etc I'm getting 4 of these Sanwa joysticks with the bat design, not the ball one. And getting them in black I'm not going to bother with the coin mechanism, will just use this button instead to simulate a coin drop So there we go guys, my progress in the last week. The reason I joined up to these forums was because I saw a great thread by Abom, as seen here: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=99144 I really like the artwork that he has done: I love that artwork and must admit to being very envious of those buttons Cheers, Matt.
