OK, so the longest cab build in history has finally started. I've cut out the majority of my frame and routed the sides. I was about to get started on the control panel when i realised that i still don't have any artwork finalised.

This is partly because i don't know what i want and partly because i don't have any talent in this area. :???:

So...what can you guys come up with?

Something that might help point you in the right direction....
1. I'm pretty sure i don't want a 'single-game theme' and was looking more at a generic/mame theme...but am open for ideas.
2. I was planning on doing a black cab with red t-molding....similar to Bigs design actually.
3. It is a 4-player cab. Based on the TMNT/Simpsons desion. Each player having a different colour
- P1 - Blue
- P2 - Red
- P3 - Green
- P4 - Yellow
4. I am looking for a control panel theme and a marquee theme.


What ya got?

I'm hoping for something very similar to Dludes CP but with the MAME theme instead. That blue is so farkin' sexy! Add some perspex and you'll be cumming on it in no time...lol

P.S. - Dlude....remind me not to go near your cab... :o

Just hopping on board in the hope I can get something also as I think your design description Krudds, is very similar to my thoughts aswell.

Sorry for hijak.... :roll:

You looking for a MAME style theme krudds or a combo of games - in other words, do you have any preconceived notions floating around in that head of yours?

Nothing really set in stone...but i wouldn't mind a mix of some old favourites i guess. Something like the marquee on your upright. Heaps of characters all thrown around together.

Some favourites would include...
Galaga
Pacman
Mario
Donkey Kong
Streetfighter (Ryu)
Mortal Kombat (Sub-zero/Scorpion)
TMNT
Simpsons
NBA Jam
etc

Don't worry Soda that's what the perspex is for......wipes straight off!! :lol:


Krudds good idea getting your theme thought about and finalized early in the build. I originally was set on going red and black like Bigs cab
pre ordered my (red) joysticks, (red) t- moulding and (red) buttons and then worked out what pic I wanted to use and it was blue!! :(

I had collected a few vectors and started a few different cp designs, I'll see what I got and show them to you.

Cheers Dlude.

Not sure how 'smart' i was getting this done early as i've pretty much done the same thing as you. I already have all my buttons/joysticks and have my red t-moulding too. :oops:

That certainly has some potential Dlude

@gameroom...
Thanks danny, i've had a look through a few things like that before, but they are only 1-game CPs and artwork which isn't what i'm after.

I second that!

Dlude seems to use a modern vs retro design which I love. Has a similar ring to it as his Tron theme, just red instead.

I know who I'm gonna ask for my artwork now... ;)
