Spyridon only states a fact. You are parting out a perfectly nice SW upright.

I didn't have very warm feelings about your decision to mame an original Star Wars cab (which is fine if you find an empty shell, like Bruno did, but sucks if you have a complete one).I already let that know on the BYOAC forum. But, since you were very determined and other people would benefit from the parts, I helped you with a link to this thread.
Next you try to sell the parts in a way that most people in this hobby just don't like, sending undisclosed "best offers" above your minimum. That's a not-so-cool way to get as much money for a part as you can.
If you'd been cool, you'd have named your price and sell it to the first person who says he wants it. That's how it goes in this hobby. It's not a money making show.
Even putting it on e-bay would have been more fair because everyone could see what the offered price was and then decide to bid more (or not).

So, it's Spyridon who is cool, not you. He sent me a Pac Man joystick for absolutely free because he knew he could help my Puckman cab project with it and, as Spyridon says, has a lot of valuable information from my restoration threads and help in his projects on the BYOAC forum.

I don't see the problem in Spyridon mentioning what you did. It's a fact, and many members of this forum are also member of the BYOAC forum and the KLOV forum. It's a small community.

I did sell every item I had to the first and minimum offer with the exception of the boards which was too low.  EVERY ITEM on the list.  It's your hobby, don't expect me to understand how you guys think when it comes to cost of this stuff or the "proper" way to sell it.   How am I supposed to know what the "right" way to sell on these forums without a pissing contest?  I have every right to sell my own stuff to anyone who wants to buy it.  In fact 4 of your good friends on your forum were happy to buy my stuff - and I hope they bring to live some of thier machines with the parts.  You can't have it both ways.  Without people selling like me, where are you going to get the parts?  I'm sure if you needed these parts and bought them you would change your tune.  And I do appreciate the link you sent me, it was very informative and put me on the right track for the next part of my project.  If I find more of these parts and want to sell them you are not making it easy for me to help any of your hobbies out.

This thread is a good example of an appropriate cab to mame.  It is well done and keeps the outside of the cab looking stock. 

...so let's just get back on topic.

Hi DN,

I've just completed the dual strike hack, and wondered if I could pick your brain (hope you have that saying in Belgium).  I was wondering, do your trigger buttons actually register as joystick buttons in windows, or do they register as hat buttons?  Mine are currently hat buttons.

Cheers,


Unc

Well, I would say 'hat buttons' if I remember well, but it wasn't a problem, because you can easily assign them in the mame key configuration setup menu (via TAB key)  8)

Cool :)  Thanks for the info.  I thought I may have missed something and wire the thing up wrong.
