So, next I started thinking about what I want to do with this controller… I’d decided to keep a dedicated controller even after I build a cabinet, so I wanted to do something special…while keeping my original design in mind.

I’m thinking sort of go with the Neo Geo MVS-looking control panel overlay…but without the stripes, and add a bunch of extraneous stuff like measurements and crosshairs and angles and stuff…sort of like a blueprint. And put ‘NEO-MAME MAS TEST FIXTURE - UNIT x’ on them.

On top of that, I want to sleeve the cabling with black nylon cable sleeves and UV reactive red heatshrink tubing, and make the majority of the housing out of transparent red acrylic. (I’m also trussing up all the wires with UV reactive red cable ties.)

I also figured out what to do for the control panel overlay and stuff. I found a place that sells self-adhesive inkjet-printable white polyester for signage, and sheets of self-adhesive velvet finish lexan polycarbonate laminate. (The latter being exactly what I wanted to finish the CPO in.)

That’s it for now. I haven’t finalized what I’m going to do for wiring, what the housing is going to look like, the CPO art, anything… So, more after I get the parts at least.

A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
