Check out this article I wrote about the game play and a way to open up the Black Ops Arcade zombie's game.
This is the Future Empty Cabinet for my Gameroom. I can't bring myself to Mame one of my Favorite cabinets (my Golden Tee 99) so I decided to get a nice cocktail table for the basement. I wanted to build it all myself but time just isn't on my side lately plus my wood working skills are in the novice range (I wish I took shop in High School)
I will keep you posted on my day to day project with this cabinet. I already have the stain picked out. It is going to be stained pecan color with black T molding. I am not sure what I am going to do about the top. I have a few options I might do. I might get the lexan printed here at work on the underside with some custom artwork or I might go with the stained top and just have a protectly square of glass around the lcd monitor I am going to use.
Yes I am going to use LCD instead of a CRT. I am just not in the mood to deal with another arcade monitor. I want to set this up easy and not deal with a lot of hassle. I am not sure what front end I am going to use either. I might use hyperspin on this one because then I can use hyperpin too but I also might use Maximus Front end seeing that works awesome too. Who know but it will be one or the other. I can wait to get this nice winter project going.
This video is proof that I got 15 under par on Coconut Cove on Golden Tee 99. I eagled the last hole to pull off my best score ever on the Arcade version. This is not a Mame cabinet this is the PCB board. I am pretty stoked and wish I video taped the whole thing but as you can hear in the audio I had my hands full taking care of my girls. Still great stuff
10 under par this past sunday on Coconut Cove Golden Tee 99.
This isn't a mame score this is an actual Golden Tee 99 machine. I have not converted this machine over to a multi gaming arcade machine yet seeing I just can't bring myself to it.
-10 isn't my best score on Coconut Cove but I haven't played this game as much as I use to. My Best Score I think is -12 and my best Score is on Rancho Ranch (i think that is the name) and it is
15 under par. Trackball games are so much fun because there isn't much effort involved. You don't even need to have both hands free for this game. I actually had my one year old daughter in my left arm while playing this game. She really enjoys being held and watching me play.
The newest golden tee machines are so far advance now but I still really like 97, 98 and 99 courses and even 2k. I own two golden tee boards www.goldentee.com and have the Roms for the Original golden tee, 97, 98, 99, and 2k. So it is kind of a pain to switch and swap them out but they all work and being stored safely at this point.
This will be the only way I get on the golf course this year. Good thing it is in my living room.
