    anyone ever build an arcade cabinet?

    I am looking to try and build one of these bad boys in the next year or so, most likely a MAME cabinet, but traditional controllers and all that jazz. Does anyone know of some particularly good online resources for arcade building?

    My friends and I built massive PS2 arcade controllers, basically a large stand with ps2 controllers wired up to arcade parts. I tell you man its so much fun. But I don't really know of any resources to check out. I would recommend though, most arcade machines seem to be built for people that arent that tall, since you're making your own build it up to a good comfortable height with a nice incline to rest your hand on.
