I'm a newly divorced guy, more then likely starting my midlife crisis…
Ive decided im going to man cave my new little apartment, and build my self ( or buy ) a small arcade, including but not limited to, A pedestal arcade controller, a stand up arcade machine, and a pinball cabinet. example 1 – example 2 – example p
What im wondering is if some one can put up a few images of their pinball table collections.
for some reason im having a problem understanding the pinball front end(s) and the systems. it seems all that this amazing arcade site is missing is a pinball section :)Â Â atleast in the front end image section…
What do you think, am i alone in this?
You're not alone best bet is to torrent a Pinball complete build with all DLCS
One day soon i will build that Virtual Pinball Table, everything is so cheap and easy to find, a couple of not to old tv's LED FHD, not UHD
i5 8g ram & semi descent video card should be enough for 2 screens
I think the site sponsor GameRoomSoultion's will have info or links as they make/sell pinball cab's
if not,and i hope its ok to link to other site, but here , i have been learning
We tried a bit of pinball stuff, but never really had a great response, will speak to the powers that be, see if anything is floating around , problem is most images are gonna be pretty defunct as the pinballer home builders tend to mod the shit out of them, will see if there is a "basic pinball table image/build" to get going ?
I've seen on the net a 4/5 screen system where for the score on a pinball is a screen in the normal way which then can be used for arcade games like street fighter that are horizontal then a scren thats turned 90 degrees & then laid flat well at the same angle as the playing field in pinball where your flippers are then that screen used for playing arcade games like 1942 that's vertical. similar to this video but the top screen for the score / horizontal arcade games like street fighter wider. screens 3&4 the same set up as this video then screen 5 thats on top of your screen for the score / horizontal arcade games like street fighter for a looped video of e.gÂ camster35's Arcade but also for the arcade games side of where it's the screen for choosing your game in the 2 screen set up i think for play-choice 10 & another 2 screen arcade games set up which i forgot what it's called.
The 5 screen set up is they way i would go if i was building a pinball/arcade games set up it's basically the same as this video except another small screen on top. This way you would get a full arcade experience of the choice of playing pinball or arcade games. As for all the buttons for this the pinball buttons for flippers would be 1 on each side for left/right flippers & again 1 on each side for tilt & 1 button on the front of your pinball/arcade cabinet for shooting your ball & possibly another button on front for tilt both sides at once if thats supported then usual buttons for players coins ect where ever you wanna put them. As for controls for playing your arcade games side of things first use what ever you choose for controllers e.g. Â x-box controllers or for the full arcade experience some sort of 2 player set up that fits at the bottom of your pinball/arcade cabinet.
Heres that video of the 4 screen set up but it doesn't show playing the arcade games side of it but there is a video on the net somewhere of it.
Hope you go for the 5 screen set up i've described & if you do please send us some screen shots & game play
