FireSlash Posted April 14, 2011 Report Share Posted April 14, 2011 So last week I picked up an old Fighter's History cab for $100. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but thing wrong with it is lazy wiring (and missing side art) However, the game itself is awful. It's basically a SF clone, and an awful one at that. So, add an old computer, some emulators, Hyperspin, and a lot of creative wiring to produce: EMULATOR CABINET. I just finished it up last night so I only got the Genesis emulator set up before it got a bit late.... But you've not played Genesis games until you've played them on an arcade cabinet. It's a magical experience. So on to the nitty gritty details: I replaced the game board with some misc PC parts I had sitting around, threw windows XP on, and installed Hyperspin to make things a bit easier to navigate. The video card is an arcadeVGA from Ultimarc (Basically a modified Radeon HD 2600 that supports arcade monitor resolutions and refresh rates natively). Input is handled via a J-Pac, and sound is through the original cabinet speakers, amplified with the amp from a Genius SW-V2.1 1250 computer speaker system The setup was pretty easy to wire really, the hardest part is with the software setup and fixing all of the awful wiring in the cab. Overall cost: ~$300 total. Totally worth it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
