    How does the virtual versions play versus the real deal @aldiode?

    I tempted to make a virtual version of this machine, I have so many left over arcade parts laying around already

    The VP version made by mfuegmann is very realistic. If I were going to build a virtual ICB cab, that is the way that I would go. Nothing beats the real thing of course.

    I’m going to keep looking would be much easier to do if I had my hands on one but should be fairly easy I think

    Of course it would be easier, but where’s the fun in that?

    Your original question: its not even close to an even trade so glad you aren’t doing it (and tell your wife to slap you behind the head for even considering it).

    I know but seems a hard machine to find! And I want/need one. Lmao

    We need a POP front end signature!!! Or no?

    Let’s frame this question another way.  If someone offered you $3,500 cash for FT would you take it?  $4,000?  5,000?

    I’ve not seen the insides of an ICB but it looks like they would be super easy and cheap to make.  I mean what’s the thing got in it other than a couple of joy sticks, pulleys, a couple of drive motors, sensors for the correct holes, a few seven segment displays and (for a modern version) a raspberry pi to keep track of balls and scoring?  There’s no plunger, pop bumpers, slings, targets, kickers, roll overs, fancy lighting, ramps, toys, expensive control boards…  Just compare that to BorgDog’s Nobs table and I think you’ll see that building one would be pretty easy in comparison.

    If I wanted one I’d definitely build it, it would be a fun project and I doubt it would be close to even $1000.

    Yeah…ICB is one of the games that is awesome with two joysticks in a pincab!  ;)

    You should keep a build log on the site. It is a project I’d be interested in eventually.

    Looks like a fun build to do, need a bigger game room first though, still need to do laundry.  What you going to use to run it? Is it coded somewhere already that can interface with real hardware?  Thought I saw a real build somewhere sometime….

    was hoping i could use a Arduino Mega but i have seen nothing available sketch wise. I have seen several people start a scratch build but never seen anything finished :negative:

    Well ive always wanted a CNC so i ordered one today to cut the playfied out. I think it will make it much easier then by hand, plus i can make whatever i want down the road so well worth the money! FYI i could have bought 2 ICB by now if we are comparing cost! LOL!

    Yeah ive always wanted a CNC but figured they are cheap enough now and i will use it for many things wood, plastic, aluminum or even vinyl cutting.

    Many to choose from but i decided on a fairly cheap Shapeoko XXL kit with cutting surface of 33’x33′ 3′-z should be plenty big for anything i would need and seems heavy enough to mill aluminum without to much trouble.

    here is link
