So with the arcade cabinet nearing completion, I've made a start on the mini digital pinball cabinet.
Progressing well so far. Most of it has been by hand; the only power tool that I've used is an electric drill. Will continue with it today and see if I can get the backbox built and both monitors installed.

Main playfield is going to be an old Dell 24" widescreen and back monitor is an even older Philips 4:3 17" with inbuilt speakers (had both lying around for ages doing nothing).

Good stuff mate! If you need any help setting up the software just give a holler. It's been a while since I did mine but I'm sure I'll be able to remember most of it!

Cheers Big. I've currently got Future Pinball running on the machine and I had a play around with HyperPin on another machine a few months back. What are you running on yours?

I had Visual Pinball with Hyperpin running the front-end. There is a bit of a learning curve but once you get into it things become logical. I have some tutorials around somewhere which are helpful, let me know if you'd like them.

I say 'had' as I decommissioned mine. While it was a hoot I just wasn't using it enough so I put the various bits and pieces to better use. I kind of miss it I must admit but one day I'd like to buy a real pinball machine. I'll never get rid of my arcade machine though!
