CPS3 Metal Protective Case/Enclosure.The Capcom Play System 3, also known as the CPS3, is an incredibly popular arcade platform amongst arcade hobbyists. With recent developments such as the Darksoft CPS3 MultiKit and other mods available with SCSI2SD, real arcade hardware use at home and in tournaments has never been easier. I designed the first CPS3 case years ago to offer a nice alternative to the clear acrylic sheet protectors I had offered in the past. The design was simple, clean, and offered an easy way to protect your hardware. In 2021, I updated the case to include:
- Added a spot for the Darksoft MultiKit DipSwitch PCB to be mounted internally and accessible to the outside of the case.
- Added a spot for an HDMI Port to be mounted when used with the CPS2DigitalAV mods and a 2x 12mm pushbutton to control it.
- Made the case taller to support the DarkSoft Multi SIMMS that required more clearance.
- Cold Rolled Steel, powder coated finish.
- All graphics are digitally printed direct to the case. No stickers!
- Supports the DigitalAV with HDMI port and 2 12mm Button Cutouts.
- Supports the Darksoft CPS3 Ultra Simms and has a mount for the dip switches on top/front of the case next to the test button cutout.
- Cart cutout is clean without any additional hardware for brackets/etc. (I am a big fan of removing the cart for transport!)
- Mounting points with access to the SCSI2SD if used.
- Access to JAMMA Edge, Audio Output, and Kick Harness.
- Rubber feet on the bottom.
- Simple two piece design.
- CPS3 System itself.
- HDMI Port (optional). They are a panel mount HDMI connector by Poyiccot. Nothing fancy, but they will work and sit nicely in the case. That’s all that matters.
- SCS2SD (Optional). Here’s the one I use and modeled the cutouts after.
- 2x 12mm momentary pushbuttons (Optional). These can be any you want to use as long as they fit a 12mm circular cutout.
- CPSDigitalAV kit (Optional).
- HDMI cables for the Digital AV Kit (Optional).
