Evening folks.

I've taken on a mini arcade project for the winter.  I've played with the idea before, but I just locked the notion in by purchasing an old dell and resurecting my ipac and other peripherals from the pile of what once was my first and only mame cabinet.  Lucky me, she was an organ doner.

Anyway, I have next to no room, so I'm going small scale... and I've found a small part:

If my mm to in conversions are correct, that is one small joystick; and it would fit nicely on my small CP.  Only problem is I have no idea if it is possible for it to be connected to a pc..  I have a USB Ipac, and the joystick says it comes with the wiring harnesses.  Anyone have any ideas here?  Also, is it absolutely necessary for this to be mounted on sheet metal?  Don't know where I can have a sheet metal CP made.

Enlighten me.

  • What Me Worry?
The wiring harness just give you 4 directions and a common.   Easy to wire to your IPAC.
