      My understanding for bartop pinball

      From a deal for two 19" Wide LCD monitors one left for free.I have wood panels,plexiglass,buttons,PC that just sits on the shelf so I decide to make a bartop pinball that will use Pinball Arcade machines.I like this emulator.The graphic is nice and it's not so heavy for PC resources.A quad AMD,2 or 4GB DDR2,VGA at least with 512MB(mine is 8600GT).DX9 version plays very nice.
      My understanding for bartop is to sit on stool and to play.Like Arcade bartop cabinet.But from what I look at the web many or almost all of the bartop pinballs are not exactly bartop because they are made with cabinet like real machine put on the table.But you must play it stand up.
      The first thing that I tested was the software of the emulator if it play nice on vertical position.And it's good,so left to build the cabinet.
      It will have door at the back on which will be place the PC's motherboar and HDD.
      On the bottom will be PSU.
      On the roof will have two 120mm fans which will keep inside not to be hot.
      Already made the control panel.The good part is that you don't need to use mouse to go trough the menu of the emulator.You can use keyboard.
      I just used a joystick with USB that will remap it's buttons to keyboard keys.For that I use JoyToKey.Very nice program.Use it very often.
      Of course the buttons that are on the panel will be different at the final product,only the middle big circle one will be left.It will be for ENTER key and Ball Launch.
      Around this button will be place directions buttons-left,right,up,down.It will have one button for ESC one for BACK.And two for spare I will decide what to do with them.
      It will have on both sides buttons for the flippers and by one addition for nudge left and right.
      And also will made left and right directions buttons on the control panel to be flippers too.So you can play it from front or from the sides
      Already made and the cabinet sketchup.

      Yes,this is the ideal.We will see what will happen.I hope to be exactly as I wish,because tested many times with different ideas.
      This was the final decision.
