It’s finally done.

More pics of the mystery cable

Arcade Art

Here is my customer MAME Strret Fighter II Edition marquee and control panel overlay. I designed these on Photoshop back in 2005! you can download them from AracdeArt.


Minor setback…

I was cleaning the inside of the cab after having completed one side of the control panel. While cleaning, I accidentally knocked loose this mystery cable and now the display doesn’t turn on. The display is a Phillips I think and the model number is shown in the picture below.

My Arcade Project

I decided to start posting my progress mainly to show off but if anyone finds anything here helpful, useful, or at least semi-amusing, then all the better.

I started this project about 4 or 5 years ago, but never saw it through to completion. It has always been a dream of mine to own my very own street fighter 2 arcade machine and now that it’s summer time again, and seeing that I have no life outside of being a total geek, I decided to try and finish what I started so long ago. This blog will serve as living log of my progress and as a constant reminder to myself to get things done.

I got the cabinet for free from a guy who was working at a pizza place in UC Berkeley. He was renovating so this arcade, along with 4 or 5 others, had to go. My friend actually came back the next day a took 2 more machines. Needless to say, we were pretty stoked.

The cabinet had the Wells Gardner display intact but was missing the Street Fighter pcb. It didn’t really matter too much because I already knew I was going to be installing MAME into it
