YouTuber Simply Austin smashes out a soon to be extremely popular video entitled “The Easy Budget Build” this is what us Arcade Punks love, cabinets, arcades and builds! Hats off to the master he has done it again…..
Here is Part one of my New Series: HOW TO BUILD THE ULTIMATE ARCADE MACHINE! In this part we are focusing on a easy to make high quality Bartop. This means it can go in anyone’s home and is very simple for us to start off on.
We will be updating this in the future adding more extras and upgrading. But for now, this is the minimum of what you want to be looking at.
The Bartop cabinet is from Arcade Punks very Own Richs Bartop Arcades – mention Simply Austin for a 10% discount!
Parts lists for everything I used down the bottom!
Complete cabinet builds from start to finish with all links, tips, guides and where to get them from, including links and downloads!
Complete programing and software guides. Tech and wiring, control setups, where to buy and who to avoid. Making this the go to source of information on all the parts you need and where to get them.
If anyone has any bad experiences from sellers or from parts, let me know. Lets not just show who and where to buy, but who and what to avoid. There are lots of great laces out there, but as always, people trying to make quick bucks selling tat!
These arcade builds will be split into logical builds, parts, features and systems. If you would like something featured, please PM me and lets see if it will suit the builders. If anyone has any requests for this type of series or are struggling on something, let me know in the comments.
