    Nice mock up! I see a stern punch me button or whatever they call it.

    I expect you want more rounded edges after a while. Except for that. :good:

    This is just a test for button positions etc.  I did round the corners on the lock-down bar but I’m not concerned with the rest until I build the full cabinet.

    During testing with the mock-up cabinet I concluded that I need some sort of D-pad for menu navigation in other apps like Pinball FX3.  So I started with a heavy sheet of brass and made this.  The buttons are 1/2″ square on the part you press.  The disc is about 3.5″ in diameter.  I will mount this on the lockdown bar at the right side above the ball launcher… or maybe in the center where the transparent button is now… not sure yet.

    the machine brushed looks cool…
    I dont know about other programs you might play on this but VP, FP, FX2/3 these all cant run right from your frontend…. no special buttons needed

    Unless you want to change settings, or if you quit a game without finishing it and then launch it again later.  Then you need to use arrow keys to navigate the options.  I’m running primarily VP, but I also have a lot of Pinball FX3 tables as well as Pro Pinball and Pinball Wicked.

    Here’s my test rig set up with the finished backbox  I also cut the plastic handle on the shooter rod off, tapped the rod and attached a brass knob that matches the one on the coin door I built.

    I updated the D-pad with a bigger round button rather than the square one I had.  This button is my launch button for tables that don’t use the shooter.  I’ll get some nice brass screws to use on the actual cabinet.

    I redesigned my vacuum tube lighting system to put out a lot more light and to run using the DOF undercab lighting outputs.  I had everything working and looking awesome and then inadvertently shorted out the pacled64 board and fried it…  grrr… I hate when that0 stuff happens.  Now I have no lights at all until I order a new pacled64.  I know better than to let things like that happen but I guess we all make mistakes… still… grrrrrrr.

    Someone needs to invent a magic smoke re-injector.  I know I could have made use of it many times.

    I definitely let the smoke out on this one, I saw the little puff, pulled the plug, and said “shit”.  ‘Bout all I could do.

    I finally got started building the main cabinet – Here’s where I am right now.  I used a router to rout a channel on both sides of the cabinet for the monitor to slide in from the back.

    Nice work so far. Coin door looks good and of base cab looks half as cool as your back box it should be a very cool build
