Q. How big is the arcade unit?
A: Dimensions: 34"H x 24"W x 15"D. Weight: ~45lbs
Q. What is the recommended wall mounting height?
A: This will depending on your target users. For average adults, we would recommend around 72" from the top of the unit to the floor. The wall mount is 5" down from the top panel so the mount would be mounted around 67" from the floor. This would put the control panel at about 42" from the floor and the bottom of the unit at around 39" from the floor. This gives enough height to be comfortable standing, or use bar-height stools (32") to sit and still have leg room. You may want to put a piece of painters tape on the wall to see where things feel comfortable for you.
Q. Where the does plug come out from and what's the best way to hide the cord?
Internally we use surge protector and hang the power cord through a hole in the bottom of the unit. There is also a general purpose hole in the middle back of the unit for maintenance access and you can also run the power cord through here to completely hide the cord, even with a standard, non-recessed outlet, you could still completely hide the plug behind the unit as there is a cavity for the plug to sit.
Q. How is the build quality
A: We strive to make a solid product and use many of the same parts used in commercial arcades. More info here.
Q. How many games can the unit play?
A: The system can potentially play thousands of games! The game files are called "roms" and we include a curated list of about 5000 games. You can also add your own games in case we missed any of your favorites. Game roms are easily found online. To add new games, unscrew the bottom panel, take out the drive and place it into your computer. Inside the /storage/roms/ folder for the system the game is for, you can see the break down of each system. From here you can find games online and add them.
Q. What if something breaks? How do I repair?
A: While we certainly hope nothing goes wrong, we have designed the unit to allow for fairly easy customer maintenance. Most issues should be easily resolved following our repair guide. Replacement for all parts are readily available through our parts store, or from ebay, amazon, etc. Most parts are easy to install yourself using our guides.
Q. Do the LED buttons and Marquee lights turn off?
A: Yes, the unit has a switch through a hole in the bottom panel that controls the marquee, monitor, and LED buttons lights (if you purchase the LED Button option).
Q. Does the computer have an on/off switch?
A: The computer we use has a lot of power to play all the games, but uses very little power when idle. It does not need a fan and therefore makes no noise. The power consumption is similar to a phone charger, and is actually powered by a simple micro usb plug like most phones. They are designed to just stay on, similar to a VCR or microwave clock. So there is no need for a power button. Technically, like with all computers, they aren't meant to be turned on and off unnecessarily as this wears down the reading/writing of the operating system disk. There is a switch to turn off the lights but this won't affect the computer power.
Q. Is the listing on Etsy any different than the one on this site?
A: No. It is the exact same unit. The listings might look a little different because of the limited options on the Etsy site. There are more options and variations available on our direct site.
