Still looks great, will it be coin operated or at least have chassis that looks like it accepts it but you don't need money to play it?

Dang, I was following this thread for awhile but not so much lately. I guess its too late now, and maybe it was suggested (I forgot) but what if you placed the 6 buttons on each side at an angle from each other?

Awesome to see this coming along, I can't wait to see the final result!

Not sure you mentioned it yet(if you have, I couldn't find it in my quick skimming), but what sort of specs are the PC that is running the show?
