second new addition – since i had some spare buttons kicking about and in various states of working, i decided to put those to use. Not going for the full-on pinball door so instead I have made my own utility panel for tweaking roms and settings. RECOMMENDATION – i originally had the back / quit buttons in popper mapped to ESCAPE (as many would…[Read more]
sooo…. Big old chunk of work done, in fact I am nearly happy with the hardware side of the build finally! I had hoped to couple this update with a video but some power gremlins remain in the build – things not getting enough power recently: the 24v contactors sound a little quiet after the improvements, as do the chimes and the webcam is…[Read more]
A jump to 120hz at 4k also assumes you have a high-end beast gaming computer enough to run at that framerate. 60Hz is fine but you want a solid 60hz – no drops during gameplay. 4K 120hz monitors arn’t really a thing yet at 43″ (or basically anything tangible above 60, believe me, i looked)… There was the wasabi mango (korean brand) which is…[Read more]
Ok, have been working on the cab (as per usual)… few updates behind here since I wanted to include pictures. Will be posting those over the next week or two… finally close to being “done” with the hardware I think (until a time later when i might want to upgrade a few bits)…
Last thing first, been working on the arcade panel this week……[Read more]

Hopefully some tracks from the album “puritanical euphoric misanthropia” in here ;)
Catching up on a few hardware updates, very happy with how it’s all coming together still!
Moved the gear motor closer to the player, it was getting drowned out by other sounds in the cab and you couldn’t really feel it moving before. It still could be worth upgrading this toy (or doubling up on them) at some stage down the road. Still its a…
Another friend was asking me about the matrix, I’m planning on doing a short video showing how i wired and mounted it when my filthy assistant gets back from her trip in Canada Until then, here’s a quick paint explanation of it…. Although you can set it up with the 1 data out doing the whole cab, I still think my way is t…[Read more]
Chime unit now in the cab and sounding sweet. Also adds a nice rumble to the thing when it really gets going… it’s making me want a shaker but not sure that I have space left for one (I will have to re-arrange some things and do some obvious tidy-up).
