MAME cabinet, control test-fit

Took a while longer to get the button layout sorted out but who cares.. Almost starting to look like a cabinet, yay! \o/ \o/

Test mounting some of the buttons and a joystick

As you can see from the picture above, I decided to use a mirrored configuration. Not sure how this will actually work in practice, but the idea was to allow for both left and right-handed playing. If there are two people playing who prefer the same configuration, I guess it just boils down to a wrestling match! :).

The space between the joysticks/buttons is reserved for a spinner. The red buttons on the side of the console will either double for insert coin (black button) or buttons 1 & 2 (maybe usable for flippers?). Next up though, I’ll focus on the end pieces for the controller console.
