  1. Thanks, that's reassuring. I just always see everyone installing PC's right into the cab, so I thought I may have been overlooking something.
  2. I'm working on designing my first mini cab. I have a BG monitor and some light woodworking skills. My goal is mostly to play FX2 and Pinball Arcade, but also want the option to throw on VP9. I plan on using a 360 controller and mapping the buttons to it, and using the left analog stick with plumb bob to simulate analog nudge. I feel pretty good about the plan. My thought was to just create the cabinet with monitors and controls first, and connect it to an external computer (at least for now). Has anyone else done this? I would think it would be as easy as running the cables out the back.
  3. Thanks for the tips. 360 controllers do not have any shock detectors, so it will have to be purely off of the analog stick. I plan to give this a try, I'll let you know how it plays out. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  4. I was looking into this one: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VS239H-P-23-Inch-Full-HD-Monitor/dp/B008DWITHI/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1366691239&sr=1-4&keywords=U2312HM Anyone have any experience with it? Critiques? Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 2
  5. I'm starting to plan a mini-virtual cab. I've found a lot of helpful information on Hyperspin, but it seems most of the info here revolves around Future Pinball or Visual Pinball. The software I'm most interested in running is FX2 or Pinball Arcade. I'm very much interested in incorporating a analog nudge (not digital like buttons, mercury switches, etc). My thought was to cannibalize a 360 controller, and map buttons from the pcb to leaf switches for the flipper buttons, etc. Then I wanted to weight the joysticks with a plumb bob. I thought that doing this with a usb-wired 360 controller would make it easy to use with a PC. I haven't found a lot of documentation to note how well this works. Has anyone tried it? Although I'm really interested in those 2 pieces of software mainly due to physics, I'd also like to utilize the breadth of tables available on Visual Pinball and the like. Will the 360 controller offer hurdles for setup?
