Looking good , the tech is the easy bit ,but get the wrap real good . The marque and the Button gfx .
Ect . Try to stick to a theme rather than a cluttered every retro game icon montage .
IMHO it screws up the aesthetic , think of the best cab art work that made your tummy flutter as a kid and run with that .
Don't forget to do a progress diary, with pics ,I'm sure lots would be interested ,
iv grown out of it but iv had many vids and pinballs and a few themed fruit machines
If you need any sources for parts or any help get in touch .
If I was to do another one I would base it on Sega hardware
The NAOMI (New Arcade Operation Machine Idea) is an arcade system released by Sega in 1998. It was designed as a successor to Sega Model 3 hardware, using a similar architecture to the Sega Dreamcast.
The NAOMI was succeeded by the Sega Hikaru and Sega NAOMI 2 boards, though having out-lasted the NAOMI 2, Hikaru and Sega Aurora. The Sega Chihiro, or possibly even the Sega Lindbergh, could also be seen as successors.
These have been hacked and can play some of the best games to grace the late arcade scene .
And you can pick one up quite cheep in a net city candy cab for reasonable cash .
For some games you you need the net card . Tokyo drift being one , so worth remembering
