Last Updated: November 4, 2005 FINAL UPDATE
Project Status:  Complete/Sold


Well it seems that my obsession with weightlifting had gotten the best of me in Early May of 2005. I really wanted to set up a home gym in my house, so as a result  I sold Demoncade 2. I do regret it at times, however as I found out moving into my new home it would not fit into my basement or den as it was too wide!! It took a lot of money and work to finish it, and I am very proud of what I had done with it.  I sold it on ebay for maybe half the money I put into it :( but I think I had more fun building it then playing it :)  I live in Canada and sold it to a guy in Indiana.  He advised me it got there with only minor damage to the rear kick plate.  He is enjoying it. If anyone sees it around at BYOA.com or elsewhere let me know!...I still will answer any questions you may have about it or any other projects I have done.  I am almost certain that there will be more projects ahead..just that I am working on finishing my home gym first. I am a workout freak! Once that is done I may look into future projects again. If anyone has any ideas let me know... I was actually considering making a table top next, however I want to make it unique someway so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb..oh if your interested in weight training etc... check it this monster.. http://www.conanline.com   thats what I bought!!!

This is the second update to the website and a huge one! The cabinet is finished! It turned out pretty good and I am very proud of it. There is only two things left, I have a small bubble in my bezel so Scott at mamemarquee.com is sending me a new one! He is great, if you need some art go through him.. you will be very satisfied. Other than that I have to just update some software.

For those on Arcadecontrols.com you will know I fried my pc, trying to wire a neon light for inside the glass near the screen so I have a new system in the cabinet! It's specs are below. I hope you enjoy my site and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me. I will try to help you out as best I can.  I have updated the site with all sorts of pictures etc.

As for software I am running Mamewah with custom made skins that match my cabinet.. If any interest I will post them on screenshotarchive.com.  Pictures are below!!

For anyone interested I am building a new mini cabinet for my nephews for Christmas, I should have it done in a few weeks. I have made custom Fire Department style artwork... I will post my progress on that project called "Game Station".
