I tested the control panel out at the weekend and….it works perfectly! I have to say, I didn’t expect it to. The i-Pac worked at treat and it appears it is as easy to set up as everyone says. So, I got my first taste of playing MAME using genuine arcade controls. It was fantastic – they even stood up well to a few rounds of Track & Field! I can’t wait to get the whole setup going.
Speaking of which, I also finished routing the cabinet at the weekend so it’s now ready for a lick of paint. Hope to have a go at that next weekend.
