It's actually really simple.

Basically , all I'm doing is building a computer into that arcade game case.After that , it's simply a case of wiring in real arcade controls into the computer , and fortunately , there are companies that provide 'off-the-shelf' solutions.

I'll be starting with 2 of These...
Each joystick can utilize 8 buttons as well.

I'll also be getting a Spinner and a trackball...

All these controls just plug in via USB.


The coin slots already put a quarter in, it clicks a button.....After that it's all software , and MAME will do it.
