    I appreciate the replies! Sorry for the delays, this is a hobby of course :)


    Just a Windows 7 desktop PC running emulators and steam games. With video out going into a TV - currently S-Video...

    Thank you for your advice, I can see this is a super helpful forum.

    My cabinet has so many entry points for geckos, because I didn't design it with that in mind, and addressing all of that would...
  3. Wow that covers most everything, thank you. ...

    Wow that covers most everything, thank you.

    Then if I am putting a back on the cabinet to enclose the entire cabinet (and hence, the CRT), does it follow I need some sort of heat ventilation at...
  4. De-case CRT TV to fit inside cabinet? (And gecko protection...)

    The replacement TV I found for my home made cabinet is a little bigger than the old one - slightly too big due to the speakers on the side. So the plan is to "de-case" the TV (Panasonic TX-29FJ50A)...
  5. Hmm ok, I will try that!

    Hmm ok, I will try that!

    buttersoft Thanks. I go back to your original big post from time to time to think about which path I want to go. I have to make a choice of 3;

    Hahah cool, you found my thread Fusion916 (and I only mentioned "Aussie Arcade forums" by name!) Thanks for the info.

    I was thinking of testing out crt emudriver 2.0 by installing it and then...

    Thanks buttersoft. Yep I totally understand the difference between a device that is doing a neat real-time conversion vs something that is doing some processing that will add artifacting and lag.

    buttersoft Thanks again :) Dammit I was waiting for an email notification, and I must have missed it, it's been a week since your reply. Came back to check manually (I have this actual thread page...

    buttersoft - I'm back again :) you can expect me to be dipping into this when I have time & when it frustrates me not having it. I have a new reason bearing down on me - the very cool retro 4:3...

    buttersoft Thanks man, that's awesome news, I look forward to enabling this for all my emulated games...

    Ok, regarding the cable, how do I know which one has that resistor? Which one should I buy?...

    Just an update - I got the physical switches from OzStick (thanks again for the link, Homepin) and I had a wooden design made up, but I also found a 3D print on Thingiverse. This is made for...

    Ok since there is unanimous support for the microswitches I'll go with that.

    Any suggestions for a physical design that's guaranteed to trigger the switch? I just need to see a concept... how the...

    Serious?? Wow ok. See, I assumed optical would be simpler because doesn't matter how light the token is, so long as it will roll through the sensor it will trigger it.

    With my little plastic...

    Thanks guys. Appreciate the Ozstick link too, my usual go to is in2amusements, but they don't seem to have such a thing.

    I'm going to consider both options - does anyone have an opinion on going...

    Heh that does seem like a good idea, but what's it called? So I know what to search for...
  17. Sorry for the late response. Wow ok, I guess...

    Sorry for the late response.

    Wow ok, I guess it's possible there's something "wrong" with the composite setup. I did as you said with the multimeter, and it stayed at 100% resistance (1). I'm...
  18. Optical sensor for simple coin/token detection

    Hi guys, I just thought I'd run this by you all to see if there's any advice... I'm looking to build a custom "coin slot" for my 4 player arcade cabinet, using this part ...

  21. Xbox 360 controllers always in wrong player order on my Arcade control panel?

    I have hacked apart 4 knock-off Xbox 360 controllers I got from eBay ($15 each!) and soldered the connections to my arcade buttons. I highly recommend this as it allows you to not only play emulator...

  25. Clean resolution & refresh rate on CRT TV using HDMI out?

    EDIT: I have more options; My video card has HDMI or DVI out, and the TV has Component, or S-Video in. Whatever best converter goes between any one of these, let me know.

    My custom cabinet is...
