Getting Started

If you’re a fan of arcades and looking to add an exciting twist to your T2 Arcade1up cabinet, this guide is for you. The process might seem a bit complex, but don’t worry – we’ll break it down into easy-to-follow steps.

Preparing the Cabinet

Before diving into the modding process, it’s important to prepare your cabinet by disconnecting the necessary components. This includes the PCB board and some wires that won’t be needed for the mod. First, carefully remove the PCB board using a screwdriver and set it aside. You’ll also notice a few extra wires – don’t worry, we’ll address those shortly. Some wires from the control deck can be taped to the side of the cabinet, as they won’t be required after the mod.

Connecting the Controller Board

Now, it’s time to connect the wires to the controller board. Start by connecting the ground wire, which is crucial for the mod’s functionality. Next, attach the CN5 converter cable and the main cable to the top of the converter board. This process follows similar steps used in previous Arcade1up mods.

Setting Up Audio

Unlike earlier mods that required extra components, this mod takes advantage of the built-in amp of the controller board. This eliminates the need for an external amp, making the process more streamlined. You’ll need to source specific parts, and the tutorial provides detailed instructions for this step.

Wiring and Setup

With the main connections in place, it’s time to configure the power sources, HDMI cable, and other components. Some customization might be required based on your specific setup. A specialized power supply setup allows you to control the entire unit with ease, and the mod includes ways to tidy up the wiring for a clean and professional look.

Adding Sensors for Light Guns

The heart of the mod is the light gun functionality. The Retro Shooter Pandora Box comes with guns, sensors, and even foot pedals for games like Time Crisis. Placing the sensors on top of the cabinet enhances gameplay accuracy. Proper placement and securing the sensors are crucial to ensure an immersive experience.

Finalizing the Mod

As you reach the final stages of the mod, you’ll see how all the components come together. Wiring, setup, and proper placement of the equipment ensure a seamless and engaging gaming experience. Make sure to follow the provided tutorials and resources for any additional adjustments specific to the Retro Shooter Pandora Box.

Testing and Enjoying the Result

With everything set up, it’s time to fire up the modified cabinet and test out the light gun functionality. Follow the guide to configure the guns, dip switches, and gameplay settings. Get ready to immerse yourself in classic arcade games with the added thrill of light gun action. That’s it! You’ve successfully transformed your T2 Arcade1up cabinet into an incredible light gun multicade using the Retro Shooter Pandora Box. Enjoy countless hours of arcade fun and relive the nostalgia of classic games right in your own home.
