  1. I hack xbox 360 pads. :slight_smile:

I actuall built a ps3/PC arcade machine so I coup actually help with this. My first suggestion is to build a JAP style sit down cab instead of an American stand up. It took 4 sheets of MDF to build mine so it’s like 250 lbs. Also I have to sit in a stool which is less comfortable than a chair. Also a back to back machine is much better than side by side. You won’t bump into each other. If you want some pics PM me of if you have a any questions.

Who says sitdown’s are better? Nothing brings back the memories like standing in front of a Neo Big Red or a Street Fighter machine with that nice gray straight across control panel.

I converted an old standup arcade cab into a SF rig, and I really would prefer to have a sit-down, like the vewlix-style one posted above.
The standup is freaking huge, it’s much more comfortable sitting down, viewing angles are more annoying, and finding the perfect barstool is proving very difficult.

Mostly a preference thing I guess, but I can’t really think of advantages to a standup. If I started again, I’d definitely go sit-down.

No mine is a stand up. But when I built it I didn’t know there were sitdown machines. Now that I have a stand up I want a sit down. I’ll post a link to the gallery in a minute.

i would make it a sitdown, and give it a flat screen monitor for HD resolutions.

This is my PS3/PC cab. Nothing like having a full cabs weight under your stick.
