    • Portable 25” Arcade Rig

      After playing ST on something like this for EVO, I decided to build my own custom setup. Its essentially all arcade guts condensed down to a portable package, with a 25” K7000 monitor and the undamned usb adaptors for control. There are switches on the back to allow Street Fighter: the Movie to be playable, and it has kick harness’s setup for namco, midway, and Capcom and is essentially plug and play. It’s also portable. It also may or may not be a fire hazard lol.

    • I saw setups like these at Combobreaker.
      Some were more done-up than others.
      Like yours...


      And one that's a little countertop w/ t-molding and all.
      I liked this design the best.



      Yours seems to make sense for simplicity and portability.
      I'd clean up those hanging cables though.
      Just so while travelling with the rig, nothing snags, and causes failure, or a short.
      Other than that, looks great duder!!!

      Thanks man! I believe that first photo was the one I played on at EVO. The only thing I didn’t like about them was the little 19” monitor, the fact that the screen was flat, (as opposed to a slight angle) and that the controller inputs were on top. I saw a lot of people having to wrap the cables around the handles, so I decided to make it more user friendly. I just need to Figure out what to do about that damn wiring though :/

      Aww EVO. Promoting crappy Arcade1up cabs and trashing arcade monitors.

      It's not like EVO can afford 1000s of Dynamo cabs or something. I mean, those are BIG money.
      luckily no one plays on Dynamo (FGC-wise, anyway) anymore lol. I think reusing old Monitors is probably the best way to go about keeping the authenticity of the old games whilst kinda keeping up with the times. Also, according to the burn in I saw, a lot of those monitors likely came from slot machines
