Here is my design for a bartop arcade with modular control panel. The plan is to make the control panels modular. I would wire the ipac/jpac using rj45 couplers and cat 6 wiring. That way you could switch out the control panel on the fly. Saving the individual control settings and loading them as needed. Would make it so, I could create different control panels depending on what I wanted to do. They would slide into the main arcade and snap in. Maybe along some guide rails at the bottom... I haven't fleshed that out yet.
Based on a design called "Mike's Mini Mame" and using a temporary marquee by kyoke over at BYOAC. I used kyoke's "R-Cade" marquee, purely for reference and would not, use it as the actual marquee... as it is their's and as such they have a right to their originality. #arcade #bartop #control_panel #mame
