Upright Discs of Tron (DOT) MAME Cabinet dimensions?
#283710 - 04/24/12 05:47 AM


hi,

can someone share the dimensions for the panels needed to build an Upright Discs of Tron cabinet.
I'm building a MAME, but want it to look identical to DOT.

Also, do you know anyone who can make the cabinet?

cheers,
Austin, Tx

I've had the thought that such a thing should be a supplement to the MAME (arcade preservation) project. Schematic drawings of arcade cabinets. But alas...


I don't know of anything like this that would have the dimensions of a DOT cab. I could look around on the net, but so can anyone else -if it's there it's there. Approximating measurements from pics could be possible... But in all honesty, that seems like a very ambitious project to undertake (due to all the details, artwork, glass/plexiglass to house the black light, etc.) let alone finding (and paying) someone to make it for you.

Not meaning to discourage you, but perhaps a more reasonable/realistic option could be looked into...?

You have to admire the either naiveté or audacity, I'm not sure which. Propose a wildly ambitious project, and then, by the way, do you know anyone who can build it for me?

AntoPisa has a collection of arcade manuals, so in a way, you're already there. Many arcade manuals include rough cabinet blueprints. Not all, though.
