Wall Mount Arcade games

Postby IG-88 » Tue Jan 27, 2009 9:18 pm

Hi all. I am looking for some inspiration to build myself a couple wall mount arcades and wanted to see if anyone had some pictures I could look at. Plans would be fantastic but I really don't expect any. I have a few pics I pulled off of Google of course, was just looking for any others I may find.

thanks.

Are you talking video games here? And if so, is it going to be jamma or a unique dedicated cab kinda thing.

Sorry this took me so long to respond too. I must not of had the settings turned on correctly.

What I will probably do is a dedicated vertical mame cab or something similar. Heres a pic of what I'm talking about. I really like these for some reason.

Hey, any updates on this? I think it would be amazing to mount an arcade game into a wall, but also not easy. If you have the talent, go for it!

Yes and no. I kind-of put this on the back burner until I got some more details. I did however receive alot of pictures and measurements over the last several weeks so I have a pretty good idea what I want to do.

One thing that has been eluding me is getting small enough CRT's to fit the cabinets. I really don't want to go the easy route with LCD's as I don't like the looks of them. PC's really only go down to 15" and those are a little too big (front to back) and while small TV's will work the interface from PC to TV is a little more complicated and expensive for just basic games.

I haven't given up tho! I will probably pick this project back up later this winter when I finish some currents ones. :running:
