Control Panel Graphic Install


The other day I received my control panel from Game On Grafix, and I got around to installing it which just about completes my MAME cabinet. I also picked up some joystick surrounds.

First, I had to remove the buttons and joysticks from the panel. This, and replacing them, is probably the worst part. (I really need to get some better cable management) After I got all the buttons off and removed the panel from the rest of the cabinet I sanded it down a bit to smooth out the hole filling I did prior. Then, I cleaned it up a bit so I didn’t have a bunch of dirt and hair stuck under the graphic.

MAME Marquee and Lighting


This is just a quick update. A few days ago I received my marquee from Game on Grafix and installed it. My marquee installation was pretty easy because I already had plexiglass since it is a conversion cabinet. All I had to do was trim the marquee a bit off the sides and I taped it to the back of the plexiglass. Then, it was just a matter of sliding into place and replacing a few screws.
