Were you able to eventually see the pic based on the URL i posted?

Bartop arcade - to put on a bartop, not necessarily to put drinks on it... LOL

Ya I visited the url. Did you build from scratch? What did you do to print the thing at the base? Based on R-Pi? I assume you didn't buy one of those things people were selling for $100+...

I thought bartop arcade is an arcade cabinet that doubles as a bartop? Not an arcade cabinet that is placed on top of a bartop leh but guess I'm wrong since these bartop arcade cabinets dun have legs to stand on.

hehe, I think those are called cocktail arcade tables, where it also doubles as a err.... table

Yes, everything, well mostly was from scratch. The main side panels were from a table shelf i bought off shopee, which i retrofitted/glued together to form the dimensions i want. My barcade measures 64 cm in length, 62 cm in height and 34 cm in depth.

The thing at the base... i assume you are referring to the panel with the various character "cards"

that one is just googling for a UMVC3 poster art, and selecting some that are higher definition quality to print. I cover every art piece with a hard plastic sheet which i bought from evergreen, especially on the sticks and buttons area, which are prone to more mashing and touch points.

Yes, the system is a Raspberry Pi 3B+, running retropie. I also used Final Burn Alpha instead of MAME as the emulator for the roms.
those $100++ you referring to i think is those pandora's box.. or jamma box... nah, i did not buy those.

overall this was very fun to do, did a lot of sawing of wood, drilling holes, screws. I also put a LED strip behind the marquee

my afternoons now, when i sian from WFH, is spent reliving my younger days - KOF-ing, Metal Slugging etc. I curated 100+ games which i probably will play, and put into the system.

Backside itchy again, so decided to modify the front panel to remove the 2P hotkey (which is redundant anyways) and install a usb port to facilitate on-boarding of games, keyboard and 3P controller for those 3 player beat them ups!

Hope u have fun with your labour of love!

There's this YT video I saw someone did something similar and added a coin slot. If I did this I think it'd be a cool idea as a coin bank or just to dump all the loose change.
