I noticed in another post (and didn't want to hijack it) that at least one other person here besides me (BrenR) has built their own Arcade Cabinet (M.A.M.E. for me)...

Anyone else done something like this?

Please post pictures too. I will try to get a snapshot of mine tonight..

Like a video arcade game?

Funny how you bring that up. A few years back, I bought a stand up Stargate from an ex Electonic Arts programmer. He was moving and had a Ms Pac Man table and full size Gauntlet. But he wouldn't sell those...

My Stargate video was broken so I've decided to start trying to fix it this week in hopes of selling it. Then I see this...I'd like to keep it but the WAF is VERY low on this...

Anyone know where I can get an operational Defender (I not II) and an operational Robotron arcade unit?

My wife loved Defender and has mentioned loving to have one to put in our gameroom in the new house...

My favorite was Robotron.

In reply to:

Ms Pac Man table



i would kill to have one of those.. the old school kind, that had a joy-stick on each side, and the image on the screen would 'flip'.. that way you could play 2 players without having to get up. plus, you could put your coke and frito-pie right on the top. !! OH, the memories!!

i checked a few years back into getting one of those for our gameroom/bar, and the cheapest i could find was around $1000 bucks. i found a lot of broke ones for much cheaper, but i want the dang thing to work.. not to mention, i have no idea how to fix one, or how much more it would cost to fix one?

i would also kill to get one of the old 'Black Knight' pinball machines.. it was the first pinball game i had ever played that offered a 'multi-ball' mode. it also was one of the first with a dual-level gametop, and was one of the first with a magnet to catch the ball from going down the poop shoot.. i spent many rolls of quarters getting good at that game!!

Nick - here's the arcade cabinet (all handmade from 11/16ths MDF - I didn't just gut an existing machine) and you can see the M3s/SS24s in the background. Seems like a cool thing to do, but honestly, I never play it. Occasionally I'll fire it up when we have company.

I'll post more later, busy day here.

Bren R.

Your's looks like the standard Defender style cabinet. I started with LuCiD's Defender plans, and customized the front so that it is not a flat front where the coin door is, but is shaped like this \_/ with angles. I also made the marquee area a rounded, almost half-circle shape. (like the old Robocop style)

I don't play mine much either, but it is fun when people come over.

Wow, you have a Stargate? Do you have a DHD? Where did you get it? From the Russians? (Sorry, Stargate SG-1 humor.)

I cant help you with the original cabinet versions but there is this
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000AHOYR/103-9505077-9393439?v=glance
Defender was my all time favorite, and this has it exactly the way you remember it except for the Game cube or PS1 or 2 deal.
It also has Robotron plus many other great old games like "Marble Madness", "Joust 1&2""Defender II", "Spy Hunter". I still spend hours playing Defender.
Another good one is this http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/index%3Dvideogames%26field-keywords%3Dnamco%20museum%26results-process%3Ddefault%26dispatch%3Dsearch/ref%3Dpd%5Fsl%5Faw%5Ftops-1%5Fvideogames%5F3112760%5F2/103-9505077-9393439
I have about 30 games for my Gamecube but spend 99% of play time on these two.

I might have to start watching Stargate when Enterprise dies... I have all the Battlestar Galactica's Tivo'ed (new and old) but haven't watched 'em yet.

There's a company that does a "MAME" type of machine but in tabletop format. THAT'S COOL, but it's like $3.5K.
