Try it as it is. See if you like it.

You can always order a couple of black plungers later without having to rewire everything  :)

the trackball will blind your players, fire the leds from the sides. and your gonna have this nice kaleidoscope on your ceiling.

for the buttons, you could always just use black casing with the clear center plunger, or vices versa clear casing with black plunger so you get the clear ring effect.

I had a bad day working on the machine . I found the time to spend almost a full day on the project . I put the machine together adding the monitor , putting the control label on and start to wire all of the items .

Problems

1. Wiring  the power switch .  I can't get this thing to work it keeps giving me an error .  More on this later ...


2 . My IPac ultimate is not lighting up my buttons . I have power 5v connected and I have my leds  that I made from Paradise Arcade RGB LEDs and they are not lighting .

3 . No desktop .  Im trying to adjust , all my settings but I removed my desktop to early and now it's just a pain in the a** to fix any settings .


4 .  The 2nd monitor causes havoc .
The LCD marquee looks cool but it seems like it's a prototype and not ready for production , every time I'm running Hyperspace selecting games it seems that the cursor pops to the second monitor and then I can't select a game or anything . I have to cntrl/ tab to get back to the the CRT . It happens a lot . My Groovymame settings are not right for the two monitors either . I am hearing audio delays , and a few games don't play right .

It was a frustrating day , I guess I thought once I had everything in my possession , I would just put it all together and it would work . I felt like throwing the towel In today .
