Man, that made me laugh my ass off. It's ture, some people are just plain crazy. I made an arcade cabinet around a year ago and it always baffled me why people take the time and effort to build a cabinet and then stick a 14" monitor in it (usually right up in your face).
By the way, if your considering building a cabinet, I wholeheartidly recommend the ArcadeVGA card from Ultimarc.com. Having a 15Khz output means that games run incredibly smoothly on screen and if you have SCART (europe only) then the picture quality is incredible (split into RGB for true a arcade picture).
Skillz on the post!!!
My random thoughts;
Sometimes This guy is a little harsh though. I could see why someone would want a cab like this; http://www.wickedretarded.com/~crapmame/19.html , that way you can easly swap out steering wheels, trackballs, etc, without haveing to make some weird hexogonal rotating thing.
God people, if you cant aford a big enough monitor bite the bullet, and buy the cheapest, at least 20", tv that still has rca ins; http://www.wickedretarded.com/~crapmame/27.html
And man.....some of those can NOT be comfortable to use;
My neck hurts just looking at this; http://www.wickedretarded.com/~crapmame/15.html

Not that I disagree, but you can swap controls without having to compomise. I have modular panels and you'd never know it unless you went right up and saw the screws. Maybe the guy was real tired after building the cabinet? I know half way through I was ready to just finish it. It took *forever*.Originally Posted by Yodaporn
That was some funny stuff. I loved the ones with the 9 inch monitors. Those are damn hard to find and I would bet are more expensive than a 19 inch because they are made for commercial use. How could you even consider that!
I have a rotating monitor, it's a lot of dang work. Probably was the hardest part of building my cabinet. Well worth it though. Centipede looks AWESOME when using the whole screen.Originally Posted by WorknMan
Man, I laughed so hard at this... funny funny stuff.
I specially loved the cabs with the "trackball in England"
My favorite ones are:
Yeah, of all the crap cabs, this one was the most normal one.Originally Posted by Yodaporn

Its clear this guy could have put together a great custom control setup.
