I take it you havenít been reading the other build threads here? Laytheís build is pretty epic.

I have looked at a few threads, I'm mainly here to share what I'm doing though, the race cabinet is an interesting build though. Haven't paid too much attention to whose doing what though lol. Props to everyone putting up a good effort and showing promise though!

Ranger, your cabinet is looking very similar to a jukebox I built back in 2006. I used a CRT (duh, 2006) so I like your monitor mounting solution much more. See the image I attached.

Keep it up!

Image is a repost from other thread, but the blue controls will be used to setup the software for the other joystick and buttons I have.

The second image is me using a SNES emulator controller as a control board for the arcade controls. It worked, but took more time than it was worth, just ordering a control board.

Sorry Ive been absent, been doing this (see my list) https://www.ebay.com/usr/jean-lukelle_0 , which mainly has me selling old computer parts lol. But it is funding the renovation of a building on my property to become a computer/arcade workshop.

Currently up to my eyeballs in orders lol.

Should have an update on my arcade machine's progress hopefully tomorrow.
