What kit did you use for joysticks/buttons? I would love to get the arcade setup.
I bought all the parts separately on Amazon.
It’s like a time warp every time I play. I just used all the old parts from other PC’s I’ve since upgraded.
R9 380 GPU
8 gb ram
MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX
A single power button with blue LED
In a open back pine wood box
Mame and many other cool emulators
Awesome, thanks for the list! I have a Pi that I can use for it, maybe can snag a spare outdated PC from work too…
That is really cool. I have a pre-usb Happ dual controller I’ve been meaning to rebuild. Seems I can use the usb encoder you’ve linked and manually route over the joysticks and buttons for both players.
Could you speak a bit about your graphics application. More photos of it would be cool as well from the top and sides.
Did you add side buttons for pinball?
Hey thanks!.. As far as the graphics I just printed a bunch of Mascots and logos with our Epson eco-tank and went to town with the scissors then glued them on , Hours and hours and hours of cutting and gluing then 4 clear coats .
No side buttons, but I like that Idea!
What does a person have to make to be a “maker”?
My grandma crochets. I think you just have to make something.
I made this ugly shelf a few days ago to put up in the shop for a router and PoE switch. Secured with Alien Tape haha! We’ll see how well that holds.
Make it a modern art exhibit, 10/10 will pay for itself.
I like it. I added a secret shelving “layer” at my old house, immediately below the router itself. Things would be occasionally disconnected by roommates, etc.
I cut the shelf as three layers…
Smooth thin painted top layer.
Middle layer with sections chopped out to fit a raspberry pi + thin 2.5" disk.
Bottom layer just as you have in your picture.
Leave about 1/2" space along the back for cabling to pass through.
Hell yeah! Maybe hit it with a propane torch then clear coat it. I’m a big fan of what works!
It doesn’t compare to a banana taped to the wall.
It’s only temporary which is why I didn’t properly mount it to the wall. Its in a dusty environment so it should be enclosed. I am thinking I might built a floor standing unit to fit a rack sized device and a couple PCs I use for servers. I’d go with cherry or hickory with linseed oil and clear finish.
You’ve enriched all our lives @Ethanol
Anyone want to buy my art? I glued some of our blueberries to a piece of wood. it’s only 100000.00 you’ll save 20000.00!
In an effort to finally try and manage the cables on my desk I made this extra leaf with a slot. The desk is a second hand dining table that I refurbished years ago. It has a butterfly leaf extension and the cable slot fits on either side when the extension is in use or down the middle when it’s not.
Sure beats drilling a hole in the table top. Needs some oil and a clear coat still.
