              I couldn't love it any more

              I've wanted an arcade machine for my whole life. Building a MAME cabinet had been on my list for decades, but I never committed. Then when a MVC CPS2 cab with ridiculously low usage, and with MiSTerCade in mind, I finally made the move. Before hooking the MisterCade up, I read through the instructions twice thinking it was going to be a big project. Then I plugged in the JAMMA and Kick harness, held my breath, powered the cab on and.....It just worked. 100% plug and play for me. I've made tweaks in the last 2 months to settings, and overhauled the cab with a spacious control panel with proper buttons/sticks and lots of miscellaneous touches here and there. Since I don't have a secondary machine (praying for a candy someday) the MiSTerCade also allows me to place a secondary monitor, for which I built a housing, over the CRT for tate games! I can switch INI files on the fly to go from horizontal CRT to vertical LCD in a couple minutes. With the V2 Remote and the SNAC/X adapters, its amazing to play Duck Hunt and Time Crisis again! I couldn't be happier with this and all the other products I've picked up. I could gush for hours about it, but I'll say that if you are on the fence about the MiSTerCade, hop off and get one if you have the need. This product is genius and has allowed me to secure customize my absolute favorite toy. Some before/after pics included (I'm pretty proud of this thing).

              MiSTercade Remote V2 LIGHTGUNS!!!!

              The remotes for the mistercade are great! Makes it so much easier to coin up, mess with the menu or adjust the volume.

              BUT V2 is where it is at!! LIGHTGUNS BABY!!

              Ignore my poor aim in the video, not the setups fault... just hard to record and aim :D

              Loved it so much... I needed to get two! :D

              I absolutely loved my first mistercade so much I needed to get a 2nd one! One for horizontal games and the other for vertical games!
