I made a 2 player panel before this one but it was very minimal with almost no wiring at all due to using a jpac.


















That's it so far. It will all be rgb lit and red ball top sticks when it is complete, but i wanted to play it, so there it is.

In case any ones wondering about the layout of player 3 and 4..They work great. Plenty of elbow room and very comfy.

Shouldn't the joysticks for player 3 and 4 be rotated to the same angle as their buttons?

Wouldn't that make them have to have their hands in a strange position?

You ruined a perfectly good Mortal Kombat 4 cabinet just to--

I'm just kidding. I don't care for MK4 at all (UMK3 all the way!)

I did alot of research on joystick placement before. ..if you do the same you'll come to the same conclusion. I first had then angled but am very glad I didnt keep then that way.it doesn't change hand position because once the art is covering the bolts you just do what feels natural and thats where having them straight comes into play.

Snark much?

Looks like a comfortable setup for 4 players.  The CP size may be an issue if you live in a 400 sq foot studio apartment. Otherwise who cares and why the needless ridicule?
