The Ultimate Guide To Building Your Own Arcade Control Panel For Your PC!

Well, it might be fine to play acrade games using the latest emulator, but why not get the look AND feel of the real arcade machine with real arcade joysticks and buttons, not any cheap PC immitation.  This document will explain how to do just that. 

We purchased all the arcade buttons and joysticks at Happ Controls. They are very cheap and they deliver. 
We purchased all the rest of the items at Radio Shack

Special thanks to Franklin Bowen for the Stargate dimensions, and Greg Bendokus for all of the research.
