    Talking Cocktail cabinet project!!

    Hi AA folks.


    Hope I'm posting this in the right section??

    I have recently acquired a 3 sided cocktail cabinet which I believe is an Arcadeworx product which currently has a PC inside running a hyperspin build.

    At the moment it's running with 2 controllers when I got it of the previous owner but it does need some additional components, configuration and TLC.


    My aim is to have it working with all 4 controllers and will swap between vertical & horizontal games (hopefully and I know it's gonna take some time to get this right)

    My current plan is the following:

    PC:

    Rebuild the system & settings -
    Install Win7 64bit, Shell this and use Coin-ops Forgotten Worlds build + addons as my all in one solution. I've been using this for a while and it's so simple & well put together.
    I believe it's using RetroFE as the frontend.

    Cabinet:
    Remove PC from case and mount PC hardware inside.
    Add a power switch to turn on PC (as coinops can shut down the pc when finished)
    Source & add a sound system with amp
    Source & add the additional joysticks/buttons
    Source & add I-PAC4 (currently has I-PAC2 installed)
    Rewire/tidy wiring
    Source a nice decal for the top of cabinet.
    Source T-molding - potentially looking at a chrome style but this may change.
    and anything else I may have missed.

    Any thoughts/feedback is appreciated or ideal place to go shopping for parts

    It's been a while since I last played around with cabinets and this is not going to be a rushed build, I'm going to take my time and get this right.

    Pictures of cabinet below. Since these were taken I have removed the t-molding & removed the buttons to the left/right of the cabinet as they were horrible.



    **
    Small update.

    I've taken the cabinet apart a little and mounted the PC onto the back panel. Installed new buttons for the sides and add p3 & p4 buttons.

    I have removed the current wiring and will redo this with shorter length wiring and some need replacing as they were fragile and broke when I took them off rotated some of the buttons so I have better access to the micro switch connections.

    Photos below.
