Show us your CAVE gaming setup!
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:49:36 PM »
Post some pics of the current gaming setup you use to play your CAVE games. CRTs, LCDs, cabs, superguns, consoles, portables, PCs, iOS devices, whatever!  :righton:

I'll start. Here is how I play most of my CAVE games. You can see the Sigma AV7000 supergun in the corner there, connected to the Sigma 9000TB controller on the desk. The Sigma supergun is connected to an OSSC 1.6 via 21 pin RGB > SCART cable. This outputs to HDMI into the Dell U2414H 24" monitor I use. My Japanese Xbox 360 (under the Sigma on the shelf) connects to the other HDMI input on the monitor. I use a Dell soundbar placed under the monitor for sound for both the supergun and the X360. I store all of my X360 CAVE games in the drawer next to the X360, and I store my X360 arcade stick (a Hori RAP EX-SE) in the large closed shelf below the X360. I like a minimalistic and compact setup so this suits me very well.



Not pictured is my PS4 which is connected to the 40" LCD in the lounge. I play Dangun Feveron (and soon Ketsui) there.

Fantastic setup EOJ! No room for a CRT?

Not much room for a CRT. But even if I had the room I don't think I'd buy one anymore. I love the look of my games through an OSSC, and my monitor has basically no input lag.

I would like to get a cab some day, but I've never done good scores on those, for whatever reason (I think I do better on smaller screens). So maybe it's not for me.

Very nice. I would probably go for a similar setup if it weren't for my cabinets cat and laundry storage.

EOJ: Add a scanline generator for that crt feel.  :righton: (Or maybe the supergun has that allready?)

My setup:
Nanao monitors, Seimitsu sticks, Sanwa buttons.

The OSSC unit generates the scanlines. They look great! I guess you can't see them very well in that picture.

I always love seeing pics of your awesome home arcade.  Maybe some day you could take the same picture but with each cab running a different CAVE game. =D

@Monouchi: didn't you have one in which you fit a 27" LCD ?

EOJ: As you wish.  ;)



Xygax: Yes, the modded bezel and 27" LCD is in storage, it can be changed in about an hour if I need a LCD for gaming.

Looks absolutely stunning. Bit confused how you use this stick with the 360 tho. Unless you don’t?!

What stick do you use on the PS4? I am considering modding a stick (in fact, Sega VSHG) with the Brook Fighting Adapter, for Switch and PS4.

Thoughts?

Pics of setup will follow in due course.

I use the Sigma 9000TB stick with the Sigma supergun. That's it. I use the Hori RAP EX-SE stick with the X360.

I don't have a stick for my PS4 yet. Currently using a Hori fighting commander pad, which is pretty nice.

Nice.

I am looking at modding a VSHG with a Brook Converter for use on PS4 and Switch.

I think I have a very similar DELL monitor to yours, that I also need to get over to my place. Nice setup :)

Yeah, monouchi's setup is amazing. I think he sold the SDOJ PCB a long time ago, though.

Absolutely no idea where to post this, but what button config do people run in the CAVE games, on a 6 button arcade stick?

Sorry if I derail a little this topic, but EOJ your 9000TB arcade stick amazing.
I am going to ask a price for having a industrial replica produced. When you have time, would you take measures (height, wide and deep and also, distance from stick hole to left and up and down borders) to design a similar stick for consoles and arcade, based in this project:

https://github.com/FeralAI/GP2040

Looks promising

Thanks

I no longer have the 9000TB stick. But plenty of other people do, so maybe one of them can help you out.

Thanks for your quick reply EOJ, let’s hope somebody more in the forum has it and is able to help me.
BTW which is your current setup? Mine is very contained nowadays, as yours. A Nec tateable flat screen, a MiSTer FPGA and some consoles with it’s arcade stick.

Still using the same monitor and Japanese X360. Also have a PS4 hooked up to it.

For the supergun, I switched to a Sigma 1AV + 3TB stick.

EOJ would you mind taking measures of your 3TB arcade stick considering it’s nearly identical to a 9000TB?
It fits what I am looking for. Nowadays I am using a modded Hori Fighting Stick VX

If you really want to do an exact replica (not sure on the legality of THAT) you should just buy one:

https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=5967

Note they are quite thin and you cannot fit regular-size Seimitsu or Sanwa quick-connect buttons in the casing due to that (only Seimitsu PS-15 fit in there). If you solder the buttons in then you can use regular-size Seimitsu or Sanwa.

Tops lists the dimensions as:

Width: 32.0 cm
Depth: 22.0 cm
Height: 10.8 cm

Thanks again for your reply.

It seems that it has the same measures as the Hori Fighting Stick VX I am using nowadays.
Don't worry, I am not interested in an exact replica or selling a product. Just to produce 2 or 3 units of sturdy, comfortable and contained measures stick for my use. Also to be able to change Seimitsu/Sanwa sticks easily

Enough with the thread derailing, friend...

Here's my setup (don't mind all the crap lying around, I know my attic is in desperate need of tidying):




I built the cab with a friend a decade ago and it still holds up. Got an old stereo and two ridiculously oversized speakers connected to the hacked Xbox running the Cave games so I can pump Mushi Futari's wonderful soundtrack at 130 dezibels.
