  1. Has anyone built a cabinet out of hardwood? Leaving the natural wood look? If so, can someone post pictures? Also, how much wood was needed for the build. This will go in my living room. Thanks in advance everyone
  2. Just looking to see if there is someone that could build a hard drive with latest version of 10 to put in an existing 3 screen VP machine. Willing to pay for time and materials and donations to the programmers. In need of about 50 games on the hard drive and some guidance to set it up to my existing machine. Thanks!
  3. Most of you will remember the guide that i created about 2 years ago which was a good overall general purpose guide for Virtual Pinball. We went Full Throttle in this 2nd version. We made a few modifications in the format. We decided to host the guide on our website instead of a PDF as we will keep updating it and this was not possible with the PDF version. We are restoring a 1975 Williams cabinet and will equip it will all the bells and whistles available. ( Addressable LED, Shaker, Gear, Chime, blower fan, dot matrix etc.. ) we have documented every section and will present it in a Youtube Video series released twice a week. As the Youtube episode gets released, the section covered by the Video will be unlocked on the website. ------------------------------------------------------- The complementary sections of the guide will be found on the website http://www.mameinabox.com - Pinball History: https://www.youtube....h?v=yvS6slWbBh4 - Parts list: https://www.youtube....v=pPA0OhFuBBg - Cabinet restoration: https://www.youtube....h?v=ikYdxunVAE8 - Cabinet Priming ,paint and repairing front coins door: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEiOHisq_Xk&t=23s - Removing rust from Pinball parts ( The easy way ) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3NnLbISG5U - Self adhesive vinyl installation ( Decals ) : https://www.youtube....h?v=mnNZZ1BQM0A - Installing cross supports and contactors: https://www.youtube....h?v=EAT64hAlM-g - Installing components mounting board : https://www.youtube....h?v=8l3vYTZgX8U - Building the DMD with a CNC machine : https://www.youtube....v=TxMS4UInSm4 - Setting up Addressable LED ring in speaker grill: https://www.youtube....h?v=-zvSngqQz24 - Setting up Dual Monitor in the Back box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qekSVIv0QlA&t - Installing Diode on toys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyzH1pVlWX0 - Wiring contactors, Fuse holder, power step down https://youtu.be/7Lx1n6cJ-g8 - Installing buttons in the cabinet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVnDZkJR4sg - Installing a digital plunger kit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeLVIH5NPjM - Computer hardware and software the essentials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkDcCitfKJY&t - Direct Output Framework ( DOF ) setup: https://youtu.be/qbfe12eL9_Y - Led-wiz: https://youtu.be/cxieZfF1lrQ - Sainsmart Board: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj8qWDqQhgI& - Setting up Visual Pinball: https://www.youtube....v=SN3S6RtTko0 - Setting up Future Pinball: https://www.youtube....v=itsxm2E8vQQ - Xpadder: https://www.youtube....v=2Kohl6KHP80 - Pinball Arcade: https://www.youtube....v=mYqM8jRhF08 - DOF Config Overview: https://www.youtube....h?v=OR-CX1Xbu7U - Roms: https://www.youtube....?v=Y3GHdaueCMY - Pinball FX3: https://www.youtube....?v=xf2kafUfNGc - Setting up Pinball X: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRhNhlpiq_o& - Future DMD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7_vA8CHoNk - Setting up BAM ( Better Arcade Mode ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcF4SphaBW4 - Connecting a Gear motor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6o5fRiqQGg - DOFLINX: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BwxsyvU-Y8& - Installing a shaker motor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMwRbsBr_oM& - Installing a Knocker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XLD2l4DlE0 - Setting up Ultra DMD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-igS-TuwVWQ& Enjoy!

This leads me on to ay why dont we do a Dad and daughtre arcade build...Daughter is learning kids code on raspberry pi so we get a monitor i have an old x-arcade dual tank..and were off. I start to do some research when i can...I work away a lot so time is hard...and i see virtual pinball...were both hooked...that leads onto what about a pinball cab...which leads onto arcade (mame) pinball cab....then i see pinkadia...wowed by it.....so i have an amazon (look into my eyes moment) and have landed with this: Vizio 43 lcd - main screen Vizio 32 lcd - back Dell17" - DMD gigabyte gaming 7 mother 32gb mem 4 ghz intel latest CPU EVGA GTX 980 ti samsung 950 256gb m2 - OS/apps 1tb western SDHDD roms-others creatve speaker sub combo on back order plunger from virtual pin button pack from virtual pin MS Kinect V2 have a vive on order and rift so looking to use this pc with fx and usbs out of the cab.... need suggestions on board for buttons/joy - i was just going to strip the x-arcade and use that swapping the buttons Software: have them all..and not manged to get it all work..hence reaching out....:-) OS wins 10 (needed for VR) would like : PinballX front end - have moanged to get the screens correct now Pinball FX2 - have account and table working on main screen only Future Pinball - can only get two screens working Visual Pinball - not treid as want to get others working first Steam installed also MAME working on screens via mameini display changes and each game- horizontal/vertiacal BAM installed I have futreDMD installed cant get it working on Dell monitor I have managed to get Pinball FX working with two screens. im at a loss now just getting the software right and monitors...i have searched and tried various suggestions throughout the forums...

  5. Hello everyone! I want to share some pics of my current pin cab build in this forum. I had a lot of inspiration from different threads so i also want to share my work at the cab. For the play field i use a Samsung UE46f6170 and for the backglas a Toshiba 32" Tv. The wood work was really easy for me, i did some changes so the Tv fits perfect also for the back box but overall its basis is the wide body plan. Its not finished yet, the hole cable work is left but this should not be a big problem... . I allready want to thank cyclemat and his awesome arduino project (http://vpuniverse.com/forums/topic/927-lwclone-on-arduino-mega-2560/) Also Sven from the http://www.vpin-shop.de who helped me a lot and anwered all my ridiculous questions . Of course also all who shared there cabinet builds and gave me so much inspiration and motivation for my own cab. So lets start with some pics... First i started with a quick sketch to see if everything fits... In my spare time i also like to work with photoshop, so i created a artwork with my favorite pinball characters... The black frame should "hide" the side rails... As i sad, wood work was fun for me (i´m a joiner), against the most builds i decided to cut the edges in 90 degrees. I don't think its necessary to cut in a 45 degree angle. Unfortunately i had to make the coin door again, like you can see in the picture, because i replaced the usb connector to the right side under the gun (this fits better to the artwork). The Artwork is a high quality print, normally used for traffic signs... (no bleaching and also water resist)
  6. Hi all, this is my first Pincab, it is near ready: http://www.digisystems.at/pages/pinball2014 Also included a Joystickset with 3 Buttons (for MAME, and Baby Pacman Pinball), Coindoor and Coinswitch, try a real Plunger with a Microswitch, all other basicly on a I-Pac32. Screens: Backglass 19", Playfield 27", Cab is Wood, all Designs are selfmade, i get only some ideas from here, the Internet, and sure from real Pinballmachines. I hope i can Play next Days/Weeks, i think in 1-2 Weeks.
