My TIME MACHINE is almost done, just need to upgrade shelf 2 and put my graphics on below the monitor!
Everyone who has looked at the pictures all ask if the monitor is to high....but all who have played then say its perfect. A co-worker who helped me build it is like 5'6, and he said it was perfect. The reason I put my monitor up higher is I am going to make the void area, controls, plasma ball (flux capacitor), LED lit fans (red and blue), digital clocks and gauges. When finished it will be my very own time machine!
Yes, I wanted to put them on the inside as well but, I routed grooves that my monitor slides into. If I had put the arms on the inside the width would have been to wide for the monitor.I am sure it could have been easily done with a few changes but I decided to go outside and put black caps on the bolts.
Yes, I have, you can email me at email@example.comI will send the art to you
I can send you or help you with your own artwork if you wish.
THANKS for the idea and instructions. I made mine 30 wide. CP is 30 x 14. Thans again for the instructions.
I used pi on mine but have a softmodded xbox also. Can u possibly give me some info on how you hacked the controlers so I can use the xbox with the mamma mame joysticks and buttons?
The one I just posted pics of is a 27" monitor. 2 player. Pics doesnt show controls yet but they fit nicely, 2 js, 16 buttons plus 2 on front
Thanks for the great ideas! Buddy and I started one on Saturday, 30 wide, 6 feet tall. CP is 30" wide by 14 and 36 from floor to top of cp. Monitor is mounted by routed grooves and slides in, but also added shelf so if that monitor needs replaced in the future a monitor can be sat on the shelf if needed. Just gotta sand, paint, and wrap. Have a raspberry PI B+ setup with retropie, and, I have an xbox modded with XBMC I will also put in bacj or under front. Gonna put usb ports also so PS or xbox controllers could be plugged in in leu of sticks and buttons if a player preferred. Thanks again for all the ideas!
