I will show you how I made a awesome gaming machine that you can play
racing games with a steering wheel, guitar hero games, and emulator roms.
I named mine "The Machine" and it works awesome and is a lot of fun to play on.
I will write more in detail in a week or so.
This will give you a good idea of what to do but some of the wiring and software
that I did I will have to add later.
The camera I used to take pictures makes the lights look super bright for some reason.
They are not that bright. lol
Step 1: Step 1 Tools
Price can vary from ($100 to $800)
You will need:
frost spray paint
game pads( wired Xbox 360 controllers works well)
Xbox 360 drums and guitar
steering wheel and pedals
lots of games (emulators and others)
Step Up & Down Transformer ( for led lights)
time and patience
Step 2: Step 2 wood work
You can go on craigslist and find free wood.
I used 2x6's and 1/4" plywood.
I can't give exact measurements because it depends
on the size of the screen and computer tower.
I measured a standard door way and made sure I built
it so it would fit threw.
My machine is about 3 feet wide.
You also want to give enough room for two players to be
comfortable so your not bumping elbows.
My setup is for a standard sized computer tower and a
23 inch lcd flat screen.
Make sure you make the height comfortable to use the joysticks as well.
Mine was about 4 feet from floor to joystick level.
