Has anyone here ever built one of these? Looking to build one from scratch and got a few questions, found various plans for the cabinet, got a spare pc to build it around.
Main questions are:
Is LCD monitor or CRT best? my thinking is CRT as this is like the old machines had anyway so keeping it authentic, also more kiddy proof.
and, what did you do about controls? Seen some keyboard hacks but they are beyond me and my soldering skills, seen some adaptor harnesses that connect via PS2 port on the PC and have terminals to connect to the buttons and joysticks, but for this and the buttons looking at around £65 (eBay prices), is there a cheaper and/or better option? (bearing in mind my soldering skills are poor.
