My custom arcade cabinet – “Rainy Days”

admin September 28, 2012 25

So, after countless hours of work I have finally finished my 2nd arcade cabinet which I have decided to name “Rainy Days” (after all, it’s on rainy days you want to stay inside and play arcade games, right?). 🙂 This is a custom 2-player arcade/MAME cabinet with 7 buttons for each player, an arcade spinner, a 3″ arcade trackball and a dedicated 4-way joystick for classic games like Donkey Kong, Frogger etc. The cabinet features a 27″ Wells Gardner D9800 arcade monitor and an ArcadeVGA2 graphics card for authentic retro gaming. The complete worklog (with tons of pictures) can be viewed here: — Your comments will be appreciated a lot.

    really awesome cab(and music!)
    but why you decided to bring a real arcade monitor?we europeans have rgb scart tvs which can do the trick(soft15khz+vga to scart cable)
    didnt you know that?
    also for the 4way joystick in the centre you should change its handle to balltop to be more original
    no offence,I really like your cab anyway 🙂
