    Not sure how I feel about that...all I do know is Rah Digga looks frickin OLD.
  2. Having installed both budget and funnyplaying, have to say the funnyplaying screens are far superior. However their customer service...not so much! We had some teething problems with the GBP version but I've installed a handful of the DMG ones too and they are stunning.
  3. @Stejay if you are nervous about drilling the holes for the buttons I would strongly recommend you put them in the location I've used. Reason being; the control deck is much thicker, more visible and not reversible so if you make any cockups you are screwed! Where I put them, it's a really thin piece of MDF and reversible so if you get any splits on either side when you drill through, you can turn it round and use the 'good' side. I used a wood drill bit to match the button, maybe 22mm bit? The power and volume I followed some instructions I found on Reddit I think. Will try and dig them out. Power was easy. Volume was slightly trickier to follow.

    I was going to post about this last week sometime and then forgot. In fact, I was going to post and say something like 'I know Cal will already be on this'. It is definitely Madlibs Donuts. It's EXACTLY what I thought after the first few listens through. It's a timeless piece and it is absolutely designed to be listened to in its entirety.
  5. RPis are the ultimate tinkerers tool (ooh matron). Weirdly having mine in a cab has made me less inclined to piss about with it. It's probably the best gaming related thing I've ever done, though. Witnessing the absolute pure joy my two biggest lads get when they are slaying footclan on TMNT is just incredible. And them reenacting all the cutscenes etc. It's pure gold.
  6. Another mouser here for the DE10 but then I bought everything else from AliExpress.... Loads cheaper than Mister site and it hasn't blown up... yet.
  7. Fair enough! I kept it stock as SF2 for a good 6 months after I bought it (mainly whilst waiting for modding components to arrive from China) and let the boys have a good blast on street fighter, then when they were kind of getting bored I BLEW THEIR MIND with a 128gb worth of games They love the TMNT arcade games.
  8. Yeah it works out much cheaper than buying it all seperately (cab, monitor, decals etc) It was a toss up between MK2 and SF2 but SF2 had standard button layout whereas MK2 has a weird configuration...but granted it has better decals!
  9. I wasn't too sure where to post this, couldn't see a 'bodged arcade machine' thread Arcade1Up SF2 cab with Raspberry Pi 3B. I kind of followed a hybrid of different guides because I wanted to keep the cab as stock as possible. So it has the original sticks and buttons. The only external addition I had to make was to drill the two holes for the 'Coin/Select' buttons. Because I kept the stock sticks I had to cut the cables and resolder them to the USB encoder wires. I also managed to get the built-in speaker running straight off the LCD controller by soldering the speaker cables to the underside of the board. No dodgy car amp needed. Finally using the GPIO pins on the Pi and some clever code I've got the on/off switch operating perfectly and even the volume 3 position switch! Goes from sound off >25% vol>75% vol. Great 128gb image too. Well happy!
  10. I think that's fair comment and tbh was my initial instinct.
  11. I mean would it be ok to advertise on forum for cex cash price? It feels uncomfortable but I'd rather it go to someone decent for less than scalpers.
  12. If I were to sell mine what's an acceptable practice? I genuinely bought it for myself but practically it doesn't fit in my setup...I mean physically rather! It takes up a cupboard space that leaves no room for my series S. I'm going to wait for the slim version in a few years or so. I don't want to 'scalp' on eBay because it was never my intention plus it doesn't sit right with me. Cex will give me £625 cash but I hate those bastards. What a weird dilemma!!!
  13. Set mine up last night. I can't fall in love with it on looks and feel. Massive ugly hunk of plasticy tat!!! A can't believe how massive it is, it's actually making me a bit sad

    'Sample' is pushing it. He's literally looped it! But still a beaut.

    Can you fucking believe this shit? Genuinely devastated.
  17. Sorry probably slightly off topic but I can't stop laughing at this and didn't know where else I could share the lols. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254722579607
  18. The suggested location is by the IR sensor but technically you can put it anywhere. But yeah, if you put it there the IR sensor still works.
  19. IPS are £28 on AliExpress. #Aliexpress £27.92 38%OFF | IPS Full Screen LCD Backlight kits for Nintendo Gameboy Color ips backlight lcd for GBC Game Console LCD screen with glass lens https://a.aliexpress.com/_d88Ynlx
  20. Don't get ripped off on retrosix! I've probably got some knocking about I can send you for cost of postage.
  21. Retrosix are massively overpriced. It actually annoys me. I understand they are trying to make a living from it but they are bordering on ripping people off with their mods. All the other bits they sell you can easily import from AliExpress for next to nothing too.
  22. He's not working at the moment. Can order parts but not doing consoles. Plus any of these sites (see retrosix also) put on a large premium. Personally I think their builds can be a bit overpriced but I appreciate it can be more reassuring than taking a punt on eBay.
  23. @sir stiff_one go for the one I linked. Mid July is only 6 weeks away and I couldn't guarantee parts would arrive in time. AliExpress give up 50 days in normal circumstances. The mod he has done is exactly what I would do. Looks like an original shell too rather than a cheapy Chinese replica. When it arrives just check for responsiveness of buttons. Some early ones had issues with protruding shell parts hitting the replacement PCB which meant you had to trim it down otherwise buttons wouldn't respond properly unless you mashed them hard. Or message him and check he's aware of that issue.
  24. @sir stiff_one I literally just sold one on eBay!! Posted it yesterday, d'oh. Depends how quick you need it. I could build you one but parts from China are taking quite long at the moment. There are some decent guys selling them on eBay. They charge a few quid more than I would (as this is probably their business as opposed to a hobby!) but basically this is exactly what you want: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133402099818
