It's been too long since I've been back on 2O2P! Anyway, just wanted to post up a link to my new project. I'm calling it a Williams design inspired custom Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition arcade cabinet. I didn't really like the design of the original SF2CE cabinet so I went with what I like. So far it's coming along pretty well. I have a few items left to get done before I can get it painted: rear doors, some internal bracing, hinges for the console & doors, cut in the wall plug plate and a few other small things. All the major work is complete. Suprisingly it hasn't taken very long. I started on it Saturday morning around 10am and worked until about 8:30pm. Sunday I only spent about 2 hours on it. Not too bad. I'm still not sure about the monitor though. I wish I could find an original 25" crt but, coming across one has been a bust. So for now I'm going with the 19" NEC. I have a feeling I'll be going with something like a 27" widescreen and cropping the image into a 4:3 format using the screen bezel lol. After this one is complete I'll probably keep it...at least for a while. I still have a Splatterhouse board that needs a cabinet and I'm also designing my own MAME cabinet. I would like to have 4-5 arcades total. My "to have" list includes - Altered Beast, Mortal Kombat 1& 2, Splatterhouse, and I'm still considering the SF2CE. I played it quite a bit as a kid and think it might end up staying and not being sold. Who knows LOL! Anyway, let me know what you think about the cabinet. And what would your favorite arcade game list be (or currently is)?
