For those of us who have cabinets already. I wonder if DreamAuthentics would sell just the graphics for the sides, marquee and the control panel. Either individually or the separately.

You should definitely contact Dream Authentics and ask the question. No harm in asking.

I know they are more than happy to supply the same cabinet and Rick was quite keen on me letting people know that.

Cheers.

Tom.

Pretty decent specs. I take it that you are running it strictly arcade and not doing much PC gaming with the arcade monitor.

Only thing missing is my theme running on your cab T! :D Well that's if I ever get it completed :P Once EVO arrives I'll have to make a GameEx Evolution specific theme to match that cab!

Hey guys,

Thanks for the feedback.

Its purely for old school gaming. MAME mostly but I also have the early 8 bit consoles running at a low resolution on the ArcadeVGA under MESS.

I am not sure of the spec of the controls. Rick will be able to answer that but I can tell you the build quality is excellent.

Ill be honest, it is running the evolution video but I will post a video when it is running the real thing :)

If Dream Authentics wanted to make a cab for someone closer to home I'd be more them happy to drive the 2 hours to Indy to pick one up. :-)

Seriously though, the cab is amazing. Super stoaked for Evolution as well!

Thanks, yeah it's pretty slick.

Its currently running GameEx arcade edition with Groovy MAME and refresh rate switching.

Won't be long until its running Evo though.

Did you upgrade this to 10, or is it still running 8.1?

8.1 I had finally grown to like, in many ways much more than 10.

Yes I did. The PC died too so I got a new and better one. 4790K if I recall, or whatever the top desktop quad core was before SkyLake.

I put an ATI card in for GroovyMAME support recently. Which now supports windows 10. Yay!
