Where can I get exact plans/dimensions for an MK cabinet?
09/12/2004 10:15 AM EST
I found the MK arcade cabinets to be the pinnacle of arcade machine design (as far as aesthetics go) and am going to build an arcade cabinet (probably gonna put UMK3 in there)

anyone know where to get plans/dimensions?

I have an mk4 cabinet and the the boards and manual for all the rest. They dont actually list the dimesions of all the parts.But there are some isometric assembly views that could help you out. However I do have dimensioned layouts for the joystick and button locations. If you want to PM me your email address Ill try to help.

You can get the sideart from ebay sometimes.
The Mk kits came with sideart decals that are about 1 ft x 3 ft If you want the full size sideart I have no idea. You would probably have to buy a dedicated cabinet.

With all the arcade game emulations, plus things like Tekken and Street Fighter on PS2,
I'm going to build a black cabinet, put on some blue T-molding....wire all blue control buttons/joysticks to some PS1 circuit boards, put a TV and PS2 in the cabinet and have a super arcade system that can play DVDs

I'm in the process of doing something very similar.

When something better than UMK3 comes out, I'll let you all know, because it still hasn't happened yet.

Is it possible now in 2020 to build once again a retro cabinet for playing Mortal Kombat games once again like the old times? I read this old article and now the components are much easier to find and assemble the cabinet. Can someone send me some tutorial on how to do it any video or similar would be nice?
