Wow... it seems that I've made a mistake posting in this forum... I thought you guys would be cool and all but... wow...

Get a sense of humor. You won't last long around here without one.  :lol

True... though in all fairness, new members should be eased into being the butt of the joke a little more slowly.  The poor little fella had to endure a 35 post jabbing right off the bat...  His confidence is probably shot.  :)

OK how would this fare? I got a 1.0 Ghz pc with 128mb ram, Intel Pentium III processor, 40 gigs hard drive. I think I gotta boost the ram a lil bit. Oh and I'm trying to build the control panel, it's freaking hard getting the buttons all lined up in a correct way. Any advice?

You could layout the controls on the computer and print them out on paper (full size).  Tape the paper to the control panel and drill away.  If you can't do this you could try using a ruler and a pencil for marking where the stuff would be.

Rulers, measurements, draw markers and start the holes with precise little center holes before you try to drill the final large hole.

By the way, 1.0 ghz is fine for 80's and some 90's game but you might have to use DOS mode. Neo Geo games should run ok. Anything newer/more intense you won't get full frame rate. You also will have to turn off all filter effects and anything else like that.
NO MORE!!

I started drilling holes in a piece of wood for the cp. That stuff is very hard! It's not the final product it's simply a beta. Also i took pictures of my keyboard hack too.  The keyboard hack is a lil messy but it works. It wasn't difficult, but you gotta take your time.
