STAINLESS Mortal Kombat 11 Arcade Build

Recommended Posts

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

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. I let them know at https://www.mk-arcade-restore.com and they immediately reprinted it and sent a new one. Very impressed with that.

Hired help at work once again, laying the re-printed artwork.

Mounting the pc with the front of the case exposed, so i have full access to the power/reset, usb and optical drives.

Looks fantastic, almost there by the looks of it. Are you going for an illuminated perspex graphic for the marquee or full on LCD monitor?

Damn son, you are not a half-asser are you? Looks great!

Can you explain your reasoning for the button layout? Does it help when playing console games? I was thinking about using my arcade buttons/stick for console games, but ended up opting for an Xbox One joystick since it makes hitting the left/right bumpers more natural.

Thanks man.

As for the button layout, it works for the 5 button cross format for mortal kombat with the run button at your thumb.

the last 6 buttons also work for the street fighters.

 

But if your asking about why i have what button where, it was purely for Mortal Kombat 11, but I changed my mind and now need to print little stickers to stick over the button labels.

its now

LB, X, Y, RB

LT, A, B, RT
