Make sure you use CRT for display

Playing KOF XIII / SSFIV with CRT is not exactly a good idea.

If you are thinking of real arcade + fighting games then you can't escape those low res games. Of course if you are thinking of making a cabinet based on consoles, current gen to be precise then LCD shall do the job nod.gif

Well I'm trying to give it a shot with building one. I have been scouring the web for good arcade cabinet and I believe the two I mentioned would suit me well.

I'm already at early stage of designing and hopefully the carpenter can use the measurement to cut MDF wood the way I want.

I saw some blue prints before, and even some materials available for sale on ebay, but those materials are for table tops instead of cabinet.

Very interesting. I can actually take apart the 3D model of the arcade unit that was already available on the web. The measurement seems quite accurate.

Probably will use this to help build the arcade cabinet!

You tried to compare an old gen cabinet with a newgen. Susah lah like that.

The old one has been made for pure retro. CRT, always the bomb for that. But if you're thinking forward, then the Viewlix would've been the one that mattered most.

That being said, i do wonder when I'm actually buying the X2.

I actually just want to find the cabinet with the proper control height so one can sit comfortably while playing games. The Windy cabinet feels nice when sitting down. I have not come across a Vewlix cabinet around Miri so I worried the control position might be a bit too high for my taste.

Hopefully I can get the measurement needed and assign contract work to carpenter.
