You're a brave man teaching all boys is all I can say - but at least they're not high school boys!
I don't think I'll be able to connect my XBOX 360 as neither it nor the monitor has HDMI, ah well, I'll just leave it hooked up in the bedroom to the 40"
I tell you what, the pinball was a massive challenge but having done a MAME gives you a very good grounding to begin from. The software is a right bitch though, getting 3 different systems to work smoothly is one thing but then you have XML files to edit, DMDs to position and don't get me started on calibrating the plunger! Still, it was an awesome feeling to get it working and some of the tables are glorious such as T2 Chrome Edition. I did it more as a challenge to see if I could so I was very stoked with how it turned out. I have since decommisioned it and parted it out (well, some of it, still have quite a few bits in the garage!) Why I hear you ask? Well while I had heaps of fun on it I just wasn't using it as much as my arcade machine and it was a question of room. Yeh I miss it but what I'd really like to do one day is buy a ridgey didge pinnie. Maybe when we move down to the Gold Coast.
Yes I have an understanding wife too! At one point I had my upright cab, a cocktail and a lowboy in the front room (which is really my man cave). I had to move the lowboy on to make room for the pinball! Now it's just the upright but I have replaced the other machines with a 7.1 surround sound system - so I still win
Oh and of course my corner of awesome with skateboards on the wall and loads of retro stuff. In short, I love my man cave.
I'd definitely be interested in the Wii games, my 360 isn't chipped but it might happen one day. Maybe I should send a drive to you...
