You cannot make registration more difficult, with a basic question to answer like "what is the main color of the virtual Boy" ?

It would be awesome.

A little head-to-head cabinet looking like the Sega Versus City or New Versus City, running two copies of Hyper Fighting would be a masterpiece. It is easy to make a hackpad to create a standard arcade panel with a joystick and 6 buttons per player.

I'm dreaming ^^

Thanks for your posts !

@TheForce81, I used a glulam bracket, and the metallic mounting part from the stand (the part above the plastic one wich brokes every time). I didn't modified it so the standard stand is still complete if I want to use it.

Homemade VB cabinet

Hi there,

As you may not know, I'm a member of a french association whose goal is to preserve old videogames, restore them and eventually present them in an annual show near Paris.

As I said a few days ago, I made a cabinet to allow our visitors to discover the marvels of the VB: we have 3 VB, but two years ago someone broke one. Since then I used to stick the bipods with some duct tape, but it was not a serious way to deal with the problem.

Here are some pictures of the cabinet near finished. I based it loosely on the famous "arcade cabinet that never existed" so all the good ideas belong to him, I'm only responsible of the mistakes :D I choose a bartop design because I don't have much place left in my tiny gameroom and it's more comfortable to play at home during a few hours, sitting in front of the cabinet.

The plan (in centimeters):

Open in new window


Work in progress:

Open in new window


Open in new window


Open in new window


The marquee features an "infinite mirror" effect. Thi part is yet to finish, I have to buy a glass panel cut "to mesures" (is this how you'd say in english ?) and stick the one-way-mirror-effect film. Here is a preview test on an old acrylic panel:

Open in new window


Open in new window


it's much more impressive in reality !

And now, ladies and gentlemen, is roughly where I stopped for now:

Open in new window


Open in new window


Since this last photo I only added the T-molding to cover the edges.

Remaining steps:
-replace the white power cord by a black one,
-finish the marquee,
-create a control panel with two sticks (I can switch the existing one with a standard controller, depending on wich game is proposed).

I'd be happy to know your feelings about all this, thanks by advance ;)

You lucky boy ^^

I just finished a homemade VB cabinet to allow the visitors of our show to discover this console in best conditions. French people are always really surprised to discover the console, furthermore with the Hyper Fighting demo running on it (until now, only 2 people knowed of the game's existence before coming to visit us, and the 2 never seen it running on real hardware).

Before I completed the stand, visitors had to try the console without security, and a VB had been broken by a visitor so I decided to build the cabinet (I'll take pictures as soon as it is in the gameroom).

Now my dream is to let them discover the full version of the game. Maybe one day I'll find a complete copy ! It would be so grateful to present them such a quality homebrew.

Unless someone contacts me first wanting me to make graphics for him, I don't think I'll need your converter soon ^__^'

The 2D to 3D image converter sounds awesome.

I'm part of an association, and each year we organize an event during a week-end to let people discover good old games.

Last week-end, we organized the 4th edition of our Retrogaming Days, and I'm proud to say that we attracted about 1700 visitors, our greatest amount 'til now !

Here is a photo of one of them, discovering our beloved VB with Vertical Force during the saturday. Sunday, visitors have been able to play the Hyper Fighting demo, and hundred of people agree that it's one of the best versions of SF2.

Thanks again for this piece of art.

Hello One Punch Man, and welcome to this fabulous forum ! I'm sure you will discover all you could dream about the VB, and much more ! Being myself a french resident I wonder where do you live in France ?

I'm near Rouen, 1 hour west from Paris, following the Seine (it's fun to see those names in an english text ahah)

See you soon on the forum ;)
