Beautiful, I look forward to seeing it complete. Please add more screens as you progress, it looks amazing (particularly the buttons and sticks), very exciting. :)

I know how that is. My friend and I played through Demon Front. Little did he know he was the second person in the world to play that game on an original xbox. lol

Hell of a lot of fun button mashing and blowing shit up.

Looks great!

 

Cant wait to see some color on it, maybe a nice design on the side...hmmmmm.

 

1 suggestion though. buy 2 speaker screens and drill holes to place the speakers facing down, then place a Marquee to hide the speakers with a light behind it for flashy-ness.

well, it's hardly even finished... but yes, that is the plan.

 

Make sure to add a scan line generator for the classic look. You can build http://www.mmmonkey....a-scanlines.htm

or buy one http://godlikecontrols.com/ (in a month or 2 when they are back in stock).

 

will these work with an xbox?

From the pictures I assumed you were already upscaling/transcoding to VGA, so if you are, then yes it will work. I used one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/CGA-EGA-YUV-TO-VGA-arcade-video-converter-US-Seller-/320849107333?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab418d985

 

I plugged my systems in through component set it to 480i/480p then into the the SLG then VGA out to my plasma. Worked great this way with PS2/Xbox/360/Wii. There was no lag that I noticed. I sold my set up to a friend of mine, so I have to order parts again. This will even take RGB from SNES,Genesis, etc. and upscale to the VGA and SLG will give it a great classic look.
