Post by modder420 » Sun Aug 29, 2010 10:45 am

well i decided to put a cab in my living room so i decided to go with a sit down type cab kinda like a vuwlex cab but with my own style and design.the goal is to run a original xbox modded with xbmc and emulators i love xmugen =)...i also plan to run my ps3 wii and jtagged 360 all from the same cab.it will have a 2 player six button layout with ro arcade controls 50inch plasma screen wireless 3rd player controller remote power wireless internet and a 10inch monitor built into the control panel and a few extras here is what i have done so far.
