    Great news on the sponsor! I looked at a bunch of them after first finding this log. I'll be real interested in how it works for you, real world testing. Keep at it and throw us a bone (post) when you can. Looks real nice :D

    This will be seriously awesome! If you manage to get somekind of wiimote control running you absolutely must find a compatible version of operation wolf :thumb:

    Can't wait to see this in action.

    i am drawing up plans for a back panel that will hold the open power button and speakers dvd drive and 10inch lcd screen.
    i am also working on a marqee and programing the custom dash and menu.the control panel is wired up and hinged on to the cab works perfect.i played a few games of xmugen and it is awesome on this huge screen you really have to be there to do it justice.picked up the stools today will get to customizing them last they were donated by home depot.
