I know I'm still too much of a sissy to try at this point!

Bueller...?
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

Nothing for me but I started dismantling the automated cabinet. I needed to make room for a Mandalorian Pinball machine that is due to arrive in March. Thanks for all your help with the cabinet Ken but I just went too far with it. If I had designed the cabinet from the beginning to do what we hoped it would do, it may have worked. I do plan to do a pedestal build. The only automation planned for it is the 4way to 8way joysticks using servos and your joychoose.  I was thinking about having the light guns rise up out of the control panel but I think I'm just going to keep it simple. Look out for the project announcement, I'm working on the control panel art right now.

Bummer man, but that project was a big challenge.
Mandalorian Pinball? Man that sounds great! Be sure to post pics when you get it.
Good luck with your pedestal build. Joychoose is still broke for the newer releases of Mame. Try Control Choose instead. I think it will work for all versions of Mame (but of course I could be wrong).

I'm keeping all the old software running on Windows XP, everything was working so no need to change.
