Arcade cabinet for the 8x8 Game System

Post by sdudley » Sun Mar 28, 2010 11:37 pm

I built a small arcade cabinet to house the 8x8 Game System. At this time it is currently an empty cabinet because I haven't the time to work on it. I will post more as time permits.

And I also have the one that you sent me :)

Which at this point is empty just like yours! I am sure that we will get around to putting something in them one day :D

I was going to post photos of both but didn't know if I should place the picture of yours here or in the LEDBoy page.

Sorry, I meant to tell you how I did it in my last email.

When you use the Img button to get the image tags, you need to make sure that the code inbetween is actually a direct link to a picture. The link you had in there was a link to a page that contained the picture.

Ideally I would like to just have an image upload facility on this forum.

I guess thats one more thing to add to my list of jobs!

It's okay :D you just need to make sure that it ends with an image extension like .png or .jpg etc...

Hi, it is running on an older version of PHPBB with a free theme by olate that I have modified quite a bit to suite the style that I was after.
