    I'm just about finished building my consolized MVS into a broken AES.

    Some time ago I bought a broken AES, which had a hole right in the center. I made a tread, where I asked how to fix and paint this: http://assemblergames.com/l/threads/broken-aes-shell-fixin-n-paintin.55100/

    After fixing the hole I discovered that the AES actually worked perfectly fine. So I was unsure wether or not I should use the shell to house a MV-1C as originally intended, or if I should just fix the hole and keep it as an AES instead. This made me put the AES on the shelf for a long time, but I eventually came to the conclusion that I did not want to start collecting for the AES, as the prices for that system is insane compared to MVS, which has 100% identical games (if you use a Unibios).
    So a little over a month ago I bought a MV-1C and started gutting the system, and today I picked up the shell after painting it a few days ago. Everything has turned out pretty well I think :)

    Painted and assembled:

    Here's a picture of the inside:

    - I tried keeping everything as neat and tidy as possible. The system can be taken apart without having to desolder anything, which is always nice :)
    Caps were replaced, Unibios installed, White LED light added to the reset button, and a new rechargeable battery was added.

    I just need to add the Dual Frequency Oscillator mod, so this thing can run in proper 59.94Hz rather than the obscure 59.18 it does by default. I have all the parts already, I'm just waiting for the PCBs I ordered :)

    Here is a video of me powering it on:

    Let me know what you think :)

    Also, Hole in one! :O

    The edge connector? You mean the Jamma connector on the MV-1C? It's just covered with electrical tape. It's still there ;p

    Way out of my league but very inspiring work nonetheless! Kudos! Is it connected via a Framemeister? The image is very crisp.

    Yeah it's running through the Framemeister :)

    So, what did you do with the innards of the AES?

    Still have the motherboard. It's completely intact and working. Not sure what to do with it though :)

    You could make it into an AES arcade cabinet.

    I have no interest in the AES. It's far too expensive considering you can get the exact same games on the MVS usually for far less :)

    I'm probably just going to sell it.

    That internal shot is a thing of beauty, socks included.

    Very nice! What values are you using for the RGB voltage divider, as I can't tell from the picture? I don't have this version of MVS, so I'm also wondering if the RGB tapping point equivalent to the JAMMA card edge ?
