Finally the Bartop Arcade is complete and WOW… what a beauty! Rich (Rich Bartop Arcades) has done an awesome job at designing these to be completely universal, but with top quality!
First I must say, I have not been paid in any way for a review of anything here. Rich has kindly donated one of his cabs me to get my hands on and see what its like. Some other companies and people have also jumped in and would like to see their products featured too… more than happy to. AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT MIND MY HONEST OPINION ON IT!
Now I can feature you guys:
– Raspberry Pi3 Image with Attract Mode HyperSpin Build
– Android Emulation Build. All media and games in 1 box1
– Mini PC, bang it in a cab or behoind your TV for a tiny fully playable Emulation machine with full front end configured!
The cab itself is a doddle to make. The main cab itself will take you less than an hour, if you add art and finishing touches a few hours total.
But to get this finish… you can get this. This video and pictures do not do this build justice. The wood weighs more than I would expect a full size cab. Its treated, so waterproof, solid. It has a finish on it which means you have no sanding, painting or any treatments before you add your art.
In the guide coming soon – I will go into it in EXTREME detail on the build… but trust me guys. This is the best quality cab I have EVER had the pleasure to play on. Its professional quality as you would remember in the Arcades.
So here you go then, some gossip on where I am up to and whats to come 😀
