Standing Arcades

Manufacture and sale of a Nu-Gen Arcade (Update 03.01.2020)

[ Continuation of this article: link to the 2nd part of the article ]

It’s been a while since I wanted to redo a Nu-Gen type arcade machine to sell it.

Slightly smaller than the first arcade machine made in 2018, the dimensions are 1.61 m high by 90 cm wide, 75 cm deep at the foot and 23 cm deep at the screen.

I added buttons on the top, 7 buttons for general control: :

  • “Load” : To load a saved game (with the “Save” button)
  • “Save” : To save the current game.
  • “Rewinding” : To go back, the Retroarch emulator manages this function which allows you to rewind the games, magic!
  • “Pause” : To pause the game
  • “Reset” : To restart the current game / rom
  • “Next Disk/CD” : To change the CD / Disk of the current game / rom, useful for multi disc / CD games
  • “Exit” : To quit the current game / rom

For the other buttons, it’s classic, each player has 8 buttons for the game, 1 “Coins” button and 1 “Start” button. I also planned to put a trackball, useful for certain games or certain emulated computers (Commodore Amiga …)

Regarding the screen I plan to put a 32 inch 16/9 (may be an AOC Q3279VWFD8).

Here is the article of the first model I made

Here are some pictures to show you the progress:
