sugestion for book three
« on: March 07, 2011, 10:33:17 am »
A section on console cabs!

There are quite a few interesting projects that use xbox, dreamcast and other console cabs.  I know there are a couple that are integrating their xbox 360 into cab format (like me!) 

It would be a neat add, especially considering all the great gun games on the ps2, the arcade ports on the dreamcast, and all the great arcade style games on the PS3 and XB360 (SFIC, SSFIV, Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam...)

Let me know, I am making my cab a dual xbox 360/mame cab.  Have a KVM that switches the sound and video, externally mounted the dvd so the xbox is completely hidden  Considering all the great arcade style games coming out, fighters, nba jam, lego star wars... its like having an old school cab and a new school one.

At the rate of my progress, I figure I will be finished right around the time a book three will come out, and it will be timely too, because they will probably be on the xb0x-1080 and 360's will be like 10 bucks on ebay...

More options would be good.  Single or swappable panels are all that's discussed.  No mention of Doc's Modular MAME :cry:.

How about an electronic version that is accessible only to this site.

You pay a subscription and then you have a permanent living document that you can base your next books off, or specialize like what Don suggested.

I'd pay for a subscription to a volume that would help me in future projects.

Also I would cap off your back-end forum database, and archive it, and make it searchable for last years content only.
"I really do feel pity for those who go out of their way to perform a personal slight, than taking the effort in joining the conversation and creating some useful dialogue which would benefit the persons' perusal of this topic.  Yet where would we be without the persistant antagonist?"
