Thatís kind of what I was thinking as well on the number of games for 4 players. And other than the wiring, cutting a new cp will only take a couple of hours plus prep/ paint so itís not the end of the world if I end up not liking it

Made some progress this weekend.  Got the main cabinet pieces primed and the big cabinet, and cp painted with the first coat.  So far, so good, but I AM TIRED OF SANDING! lol  I'll post some pics when I get a little farther.  Painting will probably take all week.  I'm limited to a couple of hours in the evenings after work, and I'm working with limited space in my garage.  The dang paint I bought takes 8hrs to dry in between coats as well.

Here's some pics after priming and the first coat of blue.  Haven't started on the orange yet.  Hopefully the rain will pass and I can work some more tonight.

Wow that is a large cabinet.  Are those 4 holes behind the CP for the cupholders?  Can you comfortably reach your drink?

Nice calendar by the way.

"TAMU and Tiddies"-LMBO sorry guys- didn't even consider the calendar on the wall. 
Didn't mean to offend anyone.

Yes, those are for the cupholders, and yeah- even the center ones are easily accessible.  Go big or go home, right?

Nothing exciting to post lately.  Still working on painting and sanding.  Will post more pics when something exciting happens.

In the mean time, I wanted to ask if anyone here has ever bought one of the "pre-configured/Pre-loaded" hyperspin drives?  I get the legalities behind it, so I don't need a lecture, I just simply want to know if anyone has bought one and if it worked.  I found one I can buy that is not much more than the storage drive the info is sitting on.  It's an 8TB drive so it would hold more than I could ever possibly need.

Why not decide what you need and go from there? Why get 1000's of roms and emulators you won't need? Doesn't look easy to navigate through that?

(And watch out for viruses...)

Part of the fun is curating your own game lists.  There are plenty of "best of" lists floating around to get you started.  I find that trying to include "everything" actually makes it harder to use the cabinet.
