Here is a small update to let people know how easy it is to get ripped
off. The cabinet was sold on Ebay at the end of July for $1800. The guy
came and picked up the cabinet and paid with a money order...or so I
thought. A month later, the bank calls and says it was a fake, and they
take $1800 out of my bank account. So I do a little research (okay, a
lot of research) and find out that apparently this guy had ripped off
other people as well, so tracking him down was not hard. The
Indianapolis police arrested him and charged him for numerous thefts.
It has now been over a year and I still have seen no money. When the
police went to confiscate the cabinet back in september of 02, it had
already been sold again. If you happen to be the current owner of this
machine, please drop me an email. I'd like to know how its doing :)
Finally getting around to updating this page. Also making
some minor grammatical corrections. The plan is to sell this
machine by the end of the summer, so if you are interested, send an
This page will detail the construction of our second arcade machine
which currently remains nameless. You may notice references
to our previous machine, but this page is devoted to the new machine.
The project spanned about
4 weeks working mostly on the weekends and occasionally at night.
It was constructed and
funded by 3 students from the Ohio State
all of us being engineering majors. We primarily used our
front porch and small yard as a work area.
Hopefully this page will
help anyone who is thinking about constructing one of these bad
boys. Contrary to what you may think, this thing is a chick
magnet. We have sorority girls, football players and other
students over here all the time playing games and commenting on how
great it is.
I strongly recommend you
and participate on the message board if you are seriously thinking
about undertaking a similar project. Look at as many examples
as possible. If you rush to finish something, you'll always
wish you did it a different way later on (I found this out after
finishing our first machine).
