    Plexiglass and marquee

    Plexi glass is a bit off… Has lines running through it when lit up…
    Who needs shaders……

    Might need to replace it some time…

    Looking around for a decent retro Marquee… Does anybody know a good site?

    That looks really impressive!

    I wish these were available to purchase pre-made.

    Thanks….
    Here in oz… They have flat pack kits… But it gets pricey… I.e $200AU for MDF laser cut kit vs $30AU raw materials.

    The ATX RASPI and case finally arrived over the weekend….

    Case
    The case is clear acrylic that comes with a fan… And heat sinks…

    ATX RASPI power supply
    This has been brilliant….
    I affixed it to the top of the case.. (Couldn’t fit it inside)
    You need to do a little soldering… But the result is your able to press a button to start and shutdown the pi….This is great when your in Terminal…

    Google / youtube

    Search for DYI arcade..
    Arcade joysticks.. Etc
    This will give you an idea of how to install.

    Your local arcade supplier / eBay will have a 2 player set with a usb encoder.

    Search this forum to see what’s issues people have had with usb encoders to narrow down your decision.

    Good luck.
