    Default Pinball FX SWITCH Arcade Cabinet

    Hi Guys!


    I wanted to show you how the arcade cabinet that I made for my switch.

    The idea starts from a Stemage video on YouTube that makes a hackpad to use arcade buttons inside a cardboard box

    So immediately I got down to work and started making the furniture.
    The most difficult part was hacking the pad because I had a lot of problems with false keystrokes and buttons that were continuously pressed.
    It is wonderful to play this game and especially without the software and configuration complications that the cabinets have with a PC inside

    I leave some images, I hope you like them

    Just out of curiosity, what size tv did you use? While I think it looks great I couldn't imagine standing up for hours just to play a table. Great job though!!

    Hey there! I'm going to start building one this weekend, starting with the button setup from that YouTube video. Any chance you could link me to the TV/Monitor you used for your setup? Also what are the dimensions of the side-boards if you don't mind? Thanks!

    That's what bar stools are for. I bought a tall one after buying a real pinball machine, because of that very reason.
