  1. Hi all! This seems like a good place to introduce myself, and show off my project. Feel free to call me "Nuck" if you'd like a shorter nickname. Started off my collection with a Pi4 and RetroPie about 9 months ago, but realized that wasn't going to cut it for some of the 6th/7th generation platforms (PS2/Xbox/GC/Wii) I would like to play. So when Intel decided to release their 11th generation of 'NUC' (small form factor) hardware, I decided to go all in and make a project out of it, primarily for sitting under my TV as a HTPC. Core hardware for my system is an Intel NUC11PAHi7. It's
  2. Just picked up my first chewlix cabinet and I plan on doing an extensive LaunchBox/BigBox install. pc specs: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 GTX 2070 super 16gb Ram 1TB NVMe for OS and software install 11tb media and game drive I have spent over a year compiling games and media and building and organizing. I plan to have two set, a set with everything and a hits list consisting of only my favorite and most commonly played games. I will also be using 2 Sinden light guns for shooting games and I may or may not add a spinner to the auxiliary contro
  3. Decided to have a crack at building a BigBox based arcade cabinet. Will be running PC, Mame and consoles. Not looking at putting 400,000,000 roms, just around 50-100 of the best for each system. Going with MK11 theme, artwork by https://www.mk-arcade-restore.com Layout paper templates little bit of help setting up my saw guide Side panels Control panel coming together Now I did have an issue with the CPO being missprinted, you can see a white stipe along the top that should not be there, and too much image being cut off at the bottom.

    PC Build Advice

    Hey guys, I am in the process of planning to build a PC to emulate up to and including PS2. What are your opinions/advice on this proposed build? https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/RFfPZR Thanks
  5. Just finished up my arcade cab (less graphics which will get done someday) and thought I'd share my builds. All of these builds boot directly into Big Box and use a mix of GFCE, Critical Zone 1.8, and default themes. Arcade Cabinet - First is a wall-mounted arcade cabinet designed from scratch in Sketchup but loosely based on a Donkey Kong cabinet. I used 3/4" and 1/2" melamine, a 2x4" frame and Plexiglas. Everything is modular and can be taken apart and put back together with a screwdriver and a crescent wrench. Controls are Happ Suzzo and a i-PAC2 keyboard encoder. Two USB controller po
  6. Usually I just call my dad if anything needs to be done but I really wanted to do it all myself this time. I have never build anything or did any wood working before, it took me a couple of months to build with a lot of trial and error, but in the end I'm very happy with how it turned out! sketchup_familycade.skp
  7. Hi All, Today I realized ETA Prime has his own Youtube channel and holy crap my mind is blown. I made a Mortal Kombat II Mame cabinet about 7 years ago using an old PC and Maximus Arcade. Today I'm building a wall mounted arcade from scratch using Big Box but still using an old, heavy PC. It works great but after the revelation that single board computers with a little modification can rival and even surpass an old Craigslist computer, my next build has to be with a SBC. Does anyone out there know of good options for SBC that can run Big Box? I'd like something that can run up to the
  8. I've recently ordered the Ultimate Widescreen bartop cabinet from Haruman Customs and now need to plan out my visual aesthetic for the marquee, side panels, and CPO. What I'm thinking so far, since I love the CityHunter theme and will be using that in the arcade cab as well, is to stick with the 80s/retro/cyberpunk style. If all goes as planned, there should be a consistent look and feel with both the cabinet itself and the software. My working title for the marquee is "ROM Runner." I like this because it is a play on Blade Runner, keeping with the cyberpunk theme, and the system will l
  9. Hi guys, A few weeks ago I set out on the task of making myself a HTPC, but I wanted something special, so I shoved a whole computer inside of an original xbox case. Finished Product: Specs (Already had some components from previous build): PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/K4Z7bj CPU: Intel - Core i5-7600 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£201.00 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Silverstone - AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler (Purchased For £0.00) Motherboard: ASRock - H270M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard (£108.16 @ BT Shop) Memory: Corsair - Ven
  10. Woke up yesterday, decided to teach myself Google Sketchup... never worked with CAD like programs before. Managed to get a very accurately designed cabinet made based on a side view outline I made. Glad I did, was able to avoid a few potential issues that would have been missed if drawn on paper. Still a bit to tweak here and there but, for the most part, I have all the braces in place inside, location of the holes for buttons, even little LED strips for the marquee. Just finishing up the back now. For extra airflow, instead of a door or wooden access panel, I'm using a 16"x20" fur
  11. Hi Folks, I'm hoping to get some suggestions for a new PC. Links would be extra-appreciated - but I don't mind doing some digging either. Here are my criteria: To be used as a media center for primarily: LAUNCHBOX (BIG BOX) , Kodi, and some light internet browsing. It should be able to run LAUNCHBOX with all bells & whistles (plug-ins and graphical effects) with no problems. It should be able to handle Dreamcast and PS2 games up to the limitations of the the emulators - not the computer. I'd like to spend under $500 - the lower the better - but not at the expen
