Control Panel Finished

I did complete the control panel overlay install last night. I notice a few minor details I got wrong, can't really fix them now, but I learned from it.

After playing a few games, it is clear I assembled the joysticks a little wrong, so I need to go back in and fix that tonight.

Control Panel Overlay

The Control Panel Overlay arrived from GameOnGraphix, I think they did a great job. I started the install last night and should have it completed today.

Even More Mame Cabinet Progress

The bezel is finished, I'm letting the paint cure before I install it in the cabinet and put the glass on top of it.

Sadly, I think the bezel really makes the monitor look small. I'm wondering if some sort of instruction card mounted along the bottom would help?

It isn't that big of a deal, something to worry about once the rest of the cabinet is done. Cool

I also completed the small wood panel I'm going to mount inside for the power button and volume control. I'll try to mount that inside tonight.

New stuff from the Flynn Lives campaign

I received a pair of pins from the Flynn Lives group, the Tron:Legacy ARG (Alternate Reality Game) promotion for the movie.

With nearly a month until the release of Tron:Legacy, I expect the hype to really pick up.

Jeff has asked me to post some of my Primisti campaign content on the RPGWeekly podcast blog. I'm going to try and post every Monday and Friday, I think this will help prompt me to do work on the game world documentation.

Cabinet Update

I've added the second pair of clamps to the control panel so it can be secured when slid into position. You can see the paper version of my control panel overlay in the photo too.

I mounted the catch plates for the clamps on the crossbar inside the cabinet.

You can also see the DVD drive mounted in front of the lower coin door and the wood braces I put in place to hold the computer case and sub woofer.

Cabinet Update

Still at work on this project, I ordered my CPO from GameOnGraphix, although the receipt doesn't say they have associated my purchase with the file I uploaded. We'll see what I get...

The original cabinet came with a particle board & glossy black cardboard bezel. I've taken some wood trim and worked it into a bezel around the 20" LCD I'm using for the cabinet. The trick is to prepare the bezel so it doesn't look like a hunk of wood painted black.

I installed some wood pieces to hold the PC case and Subwoofer in place inside the cabinet and created a wood frame to hold the DVD drive in front of the lower coin door.
