Hello,
I present you the transformation of a VB in Arcade (I took the idea on a fan of VB who has already done that).
The experience of games is really better with the fact of playing standing with arcade controllers, I rediscover some games.

I remember this project https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EDHtZ-zBEDk !
I think yours turned out really nicely, and itís very close to the source material.

OMG that is gorgeous! I wish I had the wood and paint skills to make cool cabinets like that! I want one for the VB and the Jaguar, my 2 favorite systems!

That looks really cool! I can imagine the joystick setup would be pretty awesome to play in some games!

Good job!

Very nice! I'm glad you were able to get the controller wiring figured out

The only thing I might change is the white T-molding. It doesn't really go with the VB color scheme, and it's a bit garish. Probably looks wild under a blacklight, though

Question: does having the buttons under your wrists make it hard to play any of the games? I suppose there really isn't a better layout without making the cabinet wider, though, huh?


PS: The Game&Watch cabinet is pretty cool, too!

Looks great! Really like the thin cabinet you went for.
