    For those using existing wiring on joysticks. My rampage cab had ground as Yellow wire. Only realised in boredom pulled apart joystick and looked at its PCB.

    I picked up a Rampage Cabinet a couple of weeks ago for $149 at my local Aldi's in Warragul, VIC. The lady who worked there said that there was 2x Street Fighter and 2x Rampage Cabs when the price dropped, they went within a couple of hours. Haven't seen any since :(

    Works done, added just below controls a pretend coin button (set in MAME to do all coins for all players) and a Dual USB Round car plug so can connect keyboard and 4th controller any time required.

    In terms of Bar Fridge closest ive seen in Australia to the NerAir Fridge shown in Reddit is Husky 50l mini fridge which is about $230 on ebay. Width and Depth are perfect for cab. For Height cab will need to be boosted roughly 170mm -240mm if you want to retain Rampage/Gauntlet Image.

    Aww, I drove to my local Aldi determined to pay whatever price they had on the two cabs they had sitting there for ages ... But alas they had been sold.
