D.I.Y. Nintendo Arcade Machine

Posted by TurtleGirl On August - 24 - 2009

Fancy building your very own Nintendo Arcade machine, well now you can with the help from Instructables, who give you details on everything you need. Pretty cool, huh?.



 
Things you will need:
1 sheet of 4′x8′ 1/4″ MDF
1 sheet of plexiglass
1 set of joystick and arcade buttons
1 posterboard
several cans of spray paint
an older PC
an LCD monitor
1 USB keyboard
soldering equipment
nes controller ports (ripped from a four score)
DB-25 connector
2 cases of Diet Coke :)

 
diy-arcade

 
Inside is an old PC and a 17″ LCD monitor. The back of the cabinet has two USB ports and two NES controller ports. You can connect regular, un-modded NES controllers and play with those or use the joystick and buttons on the control panel.

 
The front end is a simple VB program that auto loads when the PC boots. You never need to connect a mouse or keyboard to load your games. The VB program gives a list of games installed. Using the joystick, you can select the game you want to play.

 
Also, you can connect a keyboard and mouse to the USB ports in the back and use the set as a regular PC. It has wireless internet built in.
