Thanks, I'll give that a try.  Guessing I'd have set one time for the retroarch/libretro emulators and then separately for ones like advancemame.

Can you access the volume control on your amplifier? Or can you control the volume thru software buttons?  I've built a similar Haruman kit, and also have one of those Lepai amps, but I'm not sure where to mount it.
I mounted it in a way where I *can* access the V if I need to, but as other have said I use a software solution using my controller's 'shift' feature for volume.  It works well!

Set it to a good volume and forget it.

Almost there.  Been working with Malenko on some custom-ass art that looks pretty fantastic...



Final details are in the CP/Admin labels - I could use some help.  Check out this thread in Artwork:

Nice work Malenko... more pics with (nearly) completed artwork coming soon.

REALLY happy with how this is turning out.

Finished the art install yesterday.  Pics below.

A few notes...
- The light in my kitchen made this thing look like a glossy, fingerprinty mess in these photos.  It looks MUCH better in person.
- The plexi on the CP is totally necessary with young kids.  It also looks great with the translucent white Ultimarc buttons.
- I'll need to make some custom dust covers for the joys.  No biggee.
- The admin panel will have white Goldleaf buttons.  They're not installed yet since the art needs to get tweaked to fit the CNC holes.
- Still trying to decide on what color of ball top to use... see below.

Thanks again, Malenko! 









Any votes on the balltop color?  The first is a near-perfect match for the blue on the art, but the second gives a little more contrast.

I really like this style. Very nice artwork! I just wouldn't have added the secondary functions of the buttons in the art. Looks weird to me.

Thanks, Malenko!  You killed it on turning my over-complicated Word Doc ideas into this artwork... couldn't be happier!

Other updates, sans pictures:
- The refurbed PC I got for this works great.  It's got an i3, and it runs Hyperspin great.  I'd love to upgrade to an SSD, but I don't see that happening before next fall. 
- Speaking of Hyperspin, I have dozens of hours into messing with this thing.  There's a learning curve, but it's not too bad.  Just need to invest the time.  Everything runs slick now - menus, videos, animations, LEDBlinky... bring it on!
- I backlit the marquee with 12v bright white LED strips.  I used a separate PS, but used the 1a terminals on the UIO like a relay, so it can be controlled by LEDBLINKY.  It turns on when HS is launched.
- Most of my MAME Roms work and are dialed in, but I have a few romsets that aren't cooperating.  I'm using an older version of MAME (1.77 I think?), so finding working replacements has been an issue.  Don't want to risk upgrading, though... because then I'll have to replace ALL my ROMS.
- Other than MAME, I'm also running ZNES, Fusion, FCEUX, and Stella (Atari).  Yes, I'm STRETCHING (  :hissy: ) the images on the 22" monitor, but since the ratio isn't drastically different than 4:3, it's really not a big deal.  I think it all looks great!  Playing with different filters and scanline generators to get everything dialed in.
- My 5yo daughter is having a blast with it already.  She calls it the 'cade, and she's learning to love the classics! 

I can totally see the appeal of a bigger cab, but a bartop like this is a great compromise if you have limited space.  Again, the Haruman was a great way to do this.
