I painted the arcade terminal with a gloss paint, i bought a 32 inch display (2560 x 1440 AOC Value-Line Q3279VWF). Please note that there is no vesa mount on this screen, so it’s a bit complicated to fix so that it does not move.

The downside is that the RGB buttons are expensive, very expensive. On the Smallcab website the RGB button is at € 9.90, while a standard luminous button is at € 1.98, or € 1.60 on Amazon. On my Arcade, there are 27 buttons, which makes € 270 if I buy them from Smallcab.
[ 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 […]
The choice of system for an arcade depends on the time you want to spend there, the financial cost, and the games you want to launch. A PS3 or CPS1 game emulator does not require the same resources.
