  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Hello,
        Curious if anyone has done this.. I know you have to change the cabinet id's so they are not the same, my question is, at this point do you simply make a crossover network cable and plug the 2 computers together?  I finally have a couple machines that will play the game well enough that I thought this would be fun to try, hoping others may have done the same.. I have gotten into the test menu of the game, when I goto the Network tests, does not matter if I have a network cable actually plugged in or not, the testing cable thing says OK, did not know if that really matters or not. if anyone has tips to share or can just confirm it does not work, kindly let me know.

I have not had any luck..
First PC Settings
IP: 192.168.0.1

Cabinet ID 1

Second PC Settings

The only authentic arcade machine I own happens to be one of these so if having a look in the service menu for any useful information would help please say so.
I'm not familiar with the networking aspect of them but it might be worth a shot if no one else can help out.
