This is a great thread, really useful! I have just bought my first Picade and I'm really keen to make some of these brilliant mods, however I'm a complete DIY and electronics noob! I would really like to mirror @Luis mods, i.e. Single power source on button, 12.1" screen and some theme changes.
I've bought the 12.1" screen and power board, the step down voltage regulator, also the ATXraspi board and momentary switch. Just need some guidance on wiring it all up!
So first basic question what wires and connectors do I use for electrical wiring? Do you know where I can get some? Also I'm unsure of which DC female connector to use for the cab, as they all seem too short to fit through the side panel and be fixed against the inside?
Regarding the theme, I'd love to have a super mario themed cab but don't know where to find the artwork and how to get it printed to size, I particularly like the artwork surrounding the screen @Luis! Any guidance?
Once I've got the above sorted which I'm sure will take me a while I'd also really like to add some led buttons. Found a good thread which led me to the Seimitsu screw in buttons which look great https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/products/seimitsu-psl-30n-5w2-5v-illuminated-screw-in-arcade-button.html However I have no idea how to wire these, or whether I can still use the original wires provided with the picade?
Sorry for the basic questions, but just starting out with arcade cabs and electrics and any guidance would be very much appreciated! Been looking around on forums and this is one of the best threads!
