    My control panel paint has started rubbing off already.

    To order the deck protector in Australia email enquiries@hunterproducts.com.au with a photo of your receipt, the type of cabinet you have, your name, address and mobile number.

    I emailed them on a Wednesday and had the parcel by Friday, pretty happy with that.

    So, do these use dedicated hardware or are they emulation like the playstation mini

    Emulation. Nobody makes dedicated hardware any more. The R&D is too expensive.

    Uses a somewhat custom ARM board (so you can't just bang Raspberry Pi software on there).

    There are a few people developing hacks for them to add different games, but honestly, you're better replacing the internals with either a cheap PC or an RPi if you want to customise things.

    Started work on Rampage cab, added 3 blue buttons but please note if your retaining everything as stock as possible you will have to have the extra buttons in non matching spots due to limited space, Suggest to chalk outline from inside cab to know how close to the sides you can go. Got caught out on Player 3 pushing front of cab but lucky its pretty bendy. Was able to nudge off wiring for the joysticks straight to the the xinmo controllers and ground sit in tight squeeze. The buttons have each separate ground wires so will have to rewire and daisy chain to ground on xinmos. If you havent seen ETA Primes video on the Rampage cab check it out and shows you what hes done.
