Best Ultimate Tech Talk Hang Out Loud Edition 2K

So I was going through the attic & found an abandoned project:

A Capcom Power Stick Fighter (SNES) with Sanwa OBSF-24 & JLW stick.

 

I'm thinking of finishing the mod, making it PS3/4 compat (Brook Fighting Board?) & giving it away to an old friend/community leader.

 

Problems:

The JLW has no spring or switches

I've never added LEDs alongside buttons

I haven't soldered in a while

 

Should be a piece of cake. Springs and switches easy to find. LEDs are no problem as long as the pcb you go with has a place to source power from. If you don't want to mess with the PCB at all, just solder the LEDs to a battery box and hook the battery box up to a switch. Then you can keep the lights and the electronics separate from each other and have the added bonus of being able to turn on/off the lights separately!

80% of a Super Guns price is labor.

They are very tedious (but not difficult) to wire up.

 

If your going for Neo Geo or CPS2 consider a consolidation instead of a Super gun.

A Pico PSU and using an external video processor like the OSSC or XRGB is probbily the easiest way to go.

 

Full on Superguns are best with boards without interchangeable games or support for a wide number of arcade boards.

Funny thing, it actually has a battery box built-in! Might use that so. 

Going to plan it out & then order. 

 

Since I'm not in a massive rush (I want to have it ready for August) I'll use Akishop & take advantage of the Yen again.

That's what I did when I used the Tekken 6 wireless shell for a custom stick.  Battery compartment was built in so all I needed was a couple of wires to make everything work.

Hacked a Tiny Arcade Pac man

I had the on board jumper removed and soldered in a  4 position switch.

This allows me to play all the Tiny Arcade games and instead of the one preset on the Cab.

 

Here is a demonstration of the other games I got to come up

The Four games are Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man, Galaxian, and Space Invaders

I always wanted a Mini arcade machine ever since I first saw those old Coleco Mini arcades in the 80s with their vacuum fluorescent displays.

Those things are primitive by today's standards, but back then they just seem so cool to have a mini arcade machine.
The Tiny Arcade is Smaller, and the screen isn't all that good. But I saw the hack and felt I had to give it a shot.

Power button app?

 

Every time I buy a new computer I format the thing and install vanilla Windows on it.

Yep, power button app.

I want to just go uninstall it but I want to do some research behind it first.

Let me self know what I am getting into.

The app pops up when I hit the power button too. 

The normal, Sleep, Restart and shut down works fine in the Start Menu.

By the way I use classic shell for the Start Menu, as I don't like the Metro Start menu brought in by Win 8.

That looks like it's just a setting for managing what the power button does.  Windows power settings let you change these options anyway.  I highly doubt you need it.

It actually overrides whats the Power options do in the control panel. And Disabling it does not break the OS, but you get a  hard off instead of the OS shutting down to off. 

But I found a work around, going to the power options in Windows, making the setting for the power button to shut down.

Then in the app, notice how it said "Perform this action (Sleep) automatically and don't show me this message again" 

(Sleep) changes to (Shutdown) with that adjustment with Windows, and then I clicked the check box so the App does not come back up. 

I Don't need a sleep button as the laptop set to sleep when the lid is closed anyways.

I went ahead and installed a USB-GDROM and Pico PSU, Aftermarket clear Shell and LEDs into my Dreamcast
Even have my first foray into 3D printing, didn’t came out as expected but it works for what I want (the bottom part of the tray did not print).

Nice!  I've been thinking of putting a USB-GDROM in my Dreamcast as well!  I've heard the mod causes the console to heat up a lot though -- can you confirm?
