    I have no idea, what are the specs for sf4?

    I do know that currently it cannot run tekken very smoothly and has some small hiccups with killer instinct.

    And guys I'm not really too concerned about criticism. I knew my cab wouldn't be the best as this is my first try. I actually welcome constructive criticism, you never know, I might be able to improve it still.

    My only concerns and I think I achieved it was not to have a "crapmame" worthy cab.

    there! theres my constructive criticism :p :p

    and yes ive seen plenty crapmame cabs and i almost wanna throw up because of the raw materials wasted on a huge cab with 15" monitor.

    Hah, best first post ever. Obviously you didn't make a "muuuuch better" one if you have to stroke your ego with a post like that.

    the red is very mortal kombat so is the blue

    i like the green though as long as you got some matching lightbar graphic or side graphics.
    blue matches your house though, though you wont be keeping it in there right?

    man, that cab is neat and perfect!

    Blue, Red, or White all look great. I prefer that Blue... but Torx is right about the MK. :D

    I got a little more done today. I created a switch for my cab and now it turns on with one button. I basically took a plug and switch from a broken power supply and created a panel for with goes into an electrical box.

    I remember all the cool kids knew where the reset button/switch was on the old arcade games. They usually booted up with atleast 5 credits. :)

    Torx is a "cool kid" :).

    I'm talking 80's though. I remember every machine being different as far as the switch locations. Most were in the back but in different spots. I remember sticking my grubby little hands back there and feeling the hot exhaust on my face as I peeked behind. ;)
