Shocked
Default LANs, arcade sticks and big TVs

Just flagging some antics at .DiscO !'s LAN this weekend just gone... featuring some non-stop retrogaming in amongst the usual TF2, COD4 and so forth.



And in case anyone was unaware, I'm better at Gyruss than Inya Woodfire.

Had a blast!

Well, it was indeed awesome fun, and Shock, keep living the dream pal. My cabinet is now fully stripped, I am picking up a 68cm CRT to go in it this week, have rebuilt the PC to power it, am just about to duck down to bunnings to get some checkerplate (It lives in my shed, I have to "Man" it up a bit) and your score shall fall!!

I also have a 21" CRT to go in my MAME cabinet, but it wont fit as i built a 'petite' 2 player tallboy for my first attempt, once i polish off the last little bits it's on to version 2.0. It may be time to start a thread on home built MAME cabinets, unless someone has beaten me to the punch

Well I'm not going to build a cabinet, but I am going to grab the dual controller and run mame on the old box here... will drag out to the big screen tv on special occasions (i.e. when kids are not around), but the dell 24inch tv aspect monitor I have will suffice in the mean time

That setup of Disco's was very inspiring... curses!

Just piping in to say I bought the arcade-x dual controller (X-Arcade Dual Arcade Joystick, Relive Thousands Of Arcade Classics!). Put MAME on and also bought SF4. I'm in arcade heaven now. I can't recommend enough the playing of arcade games on one of these proper stick setups!

Thanks to Disco for the inspiration!

Seems Disco has cost us all a packet.

I now have a new 68cm screen running at 15khz (Genuine arcade res) so will look nice and authentic. new coin mech, lots of new bits in the cab, blah blah blah.

End result is ALOT of time in the shed building it all, followed by even more playing it

It does however seem that MALA is far harder to understand than i thought, looks amazing when running (Thanks to shock_ for getting me hooked when i witnessed his lovely set up) but is causing me much confusment
