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 .

Hey Vince, I have my 2nd monitor working with EDS, if I can help let me know.  One question would be are you using Rocketlauncher?  If not I would highly recommend looking into it as it was designed to run with Hyperspin and pretty much any emulator.  I don't have much experience with Groovymame, but it may be responsible for some of your problems, not sure.  In my setup it's just plain Hyperspin, Rocketlauncher configured with standard Mame and EDS with Hypermarquee and it's running great.

After thoughts of a creating a dumpster fire with this machine I had a moment of clarity . My computer for the machine went down and I was losing it , i could not figure out what the problem was , so I took my drives to work and they were fine . I was still getting power to the computer but it was  not booting up . I went out and got another used computer like the one I had and swapped the ram and hard drives and everything work for a day and then down again . This is when I was ready to give up . I figured it was the video card that failed . I took it out and everything worked fine , so I ordered a new video card , now I have two working computers , oh well it was only 100.00 bucks . I also realized that my wires that power the IPac ultimate needed to be swapped and we now have light!

I made some adjustments to my Joy2key settings, the joystick when selecting games was too sensitive .

I just need to get some of the wiring setup like the trackball , power button , and volume control and I will be finished .

Almost complete. I just need to sort out the power strip /power button situation , and volume knob on the front of the control panel and then I need to figure out how to program LEDBlinky and this thing is done.
