Have dropped by these forums a lot, but never posted, so apologies for being such a lousy lurker. However... for my first post I present 'arcadiMac'
I guess this is a case mod... mods - please move this if I've posted in the wrong spot.
Finished last night - still a bit of tidy up to go but mostly there...
iMac 233MHz running OS9 and MacMame. Uses iPac controller for arcade buttons/joysticks etc Unsoldered & rewired start button on iMac to arcade switch. Built cabinet (obviously) - not a kit. All functions controlled from joysticks via QuickKeys Total cost less than $200. Hurrah!
OS9 runs surprisingly snappy with most roms except NeoGeo. Sorry - the images appear to be a bit big so are getting clipped on the right hand side.
Took quite a while, but only because I would do a day or two on it here and there then leave it for a month, plus also didn't have much of an idea in the beginning, so lots of time spent on research.
I'm actually getting together all the parts for another table - will be similar in that it will be a side by side cocktail cab again, but I'll have an actual plan this time, and I will do a proper build how-to for that and post it here.
haha - sure. There's a little bit of tidy up left to go especially with the wiring but I'll put something together over the next couple of weeks. There's also been some interest for a how-to from some guys on MacTalk and AussieArcade, so I'll send them all here when it's done too
