Terminator 2 Console Conversion DVD Video plus Bonus DVD $19.95 + S&H BUY NOW  

This hour video documents the conversion of an empty Terminator 2 cabinet into a multi console gaming system. You can easily convert your own cabinet into a multi-console system using these methods. I installed an X-Box and a PS-2 with a simple switching system so both are easily used with the same control panel and the same video screen. Light Guns are also used but the new control panel can also play almost any console game including the classics. This is a video DVD which also includes a bonus data DVD with all of the information we could not fit into the video including sources for parts and setup details, light gun calibration procedures and preconfigured calibration files, special drivers, even the photoshop template we used to create the labeled control panel overlay for the X-Arcade panel used in this project.

Sky Hawk Video File

This is an avi file of the 16mm film used in the Sky Hawk Machine. If you can write an emulator to use it let me know and I am sure we can work something out for the footage. The game is very simple, a plane flys by and you shoot at it. If you hit you receive points. There is a time limit.
