Back to the Arcade

Category: Journal,Mini Mame

It is close to a year that I last abandoned the project and now it is time to get back on it. Having been fret with hardware issues I lost drive on the project especially when the weather started turning for the good and yard work was calling.

This weekend I got back at it and decided to tackle the cabinet itself as this might help in deciding on some of my hardware replacement choices and a few last hardware pieces. I did some research on some cabinets and found some of the aspects I like about some of the best ones and wanted to mix in a few details of the classic tabletop Coleco games I played so much as a kid.

After spending a few hours playing around with a couple of drawings I cut out all the pieces and built this cardboard prototype. I am really happy with the result but might increase the height about an inch to allow for some more room for the buttons and joystick.

Next is playing with the button/joystick configuration.
