I tried to link the image here, but couldn't.... anyhow, I decided to upgrade my Tekken 5 cab to be (hopefully) a Tekken 6 cab. I don't have a noir cab, but this is damn close.

If need be, this cab can be converted to sit down, as well. Thoughts?

Did you replace the screen or was it like that when you got it?

Those are decent cabs. They got good space on 'em for 2 grown men to play.

Isn't that kind of a big screen to be standing like two feet away from?

I am in the process of adjusting the marquee up about a quarter of an inch. I also have to make my own mount from monitor frame to the vesa mounts on the back of the tv. Will take more detailed pics when done.

And yeah, it is big. But not a great deal different than playing on a sit down high def cab....

Edit: the cool thing is I took the power from where the previous monitor came from, and it powers itself up and on when you turn the cab on. So there is no need for doing it separately.

I like that, looks really good. And you can never be to close to a screen, that whole burning your eyes out thing was stuff my parents told me and now I tell my kids even though it's not true for the most part.

yo that looks sick......i dont know what the stock one looks like but i like this. id say just do sumpiun about the logo on bottom but looks like alot of room for 2 to play next to each other. im too tall to play comfterbly standing infront of my big red and also its too cramped playn wit someone. theis looks better.......ps tekken 5 is way better than 6.....just my opinion

good job

how did you get a reg tv to hook up to a cab if u dont mind me askin

I said I want to out tekken 6 in there. It is 5 dark res, right now. When I am done, I will get more pics.

As for how I connected it, the audio is connected via the old speaker connections to a pc connector on the back of the tv. The video is vga.

If you leave it arcade I will send you a Double Dragon 3 PCB for free if you pay shipping just so I can see that ugly as fuck game on something that nice.

If I were to change mine I would sell my system 356, going for about 600 on ebay and but in a modded xbox 360 with a tb HD loaded with all the fighting games, I saw a system like that somewhere online and I was jealous. I will probably leave mine stock, but if I did mod it, that is what I might do. My son is such a purist he will not let me mod or update any of our games.

Can you adjust that monitor to vertical easily? It would be nice for shmups. Very nice setup!
