Arcade cabinet with rotative CRT monitor and real amiga inside project

hi guys,

Since 2 months, i am working on new project : an arcade cabinet with rotative CRT monitor.

- 2D/3D schematics are finished (using VariCAD tool)
- MDF structure are finished, built and painted.
- rotative monitor system is done (motorized now 06-2017)

I have to finish the wiring and find a motor powerful enough for the rotation.

The goal is to get a pixel perfect render for arcade games and a real amiga.

If people are interested, I will released the 3D technical schemes on this thread.

- D├ędicated Win7+ATi GPU+Groovy mame for pixel perfect display
- Cabinet 2D/3D schematics
- Cabinet built and painted
- monitor rotation system (rim + roller whells...) using CRT PHILIPS 21PT5408 tube and PCB
- front glass painted
- front panel with switches and wiring built
- CRT rotation motorized with limit switches calibred (06-29-2017)
- retro lighting for marquee (with switch on front panel between monitor and x arcade) added
- marquee designed and installed (x10)
- X-arcade , Trusmaster steering wheels support
- amiga inside with common monitor/keyboard (mouse possible but not connected because i use mouse/joy automatic switch)

To do:
- add twice light guns support (working but not installed)
- to make a X-arcade tank/DB9 adaptator

Finalisation: june 2017

- I use an mini ATX PC with Groovymame and ATI GPU for perfect pixel render for arcade/Megadrive/(SNES), etc
- I want use an real amiga for amiga games of course (but x arcade adaptor to do=>using currently joy/mouse hidden in hidden drawer under X Arcade)
- it's designed for Trusmaster steering wheels support (replacing X arcade)
=>both computers can be placed inside cabinet.

best regards.
