Batchman Posted March 10, 2021 Share Posted March 10, 2021 I actually bought approximately half the controllers for a cab I eventually wanted to build, but I have no wood skills, and the friend I was hoping would work with me to build a cabinet for each of us ... my research and planning, his woodworking skills ... never had the time to do any work on it. (So I've got a box with 5 joysticks, a spinner, a wheel to fit over the spinner, and something like 32 arcade buttons, among other things, still sitting around somewhere.) But what I was looking to design was pretty much the Legend, but with only one spinner, and adding on a dedicated 4 way joystick and Tron joystick. So what the ultimate Legend offers to me is like a dream come true for the price. Throw in a pi game machine for anything that the Legend can't handle, itself, like one person did in that thread, and you have a pretty great over-all system ... as long as it's not too difficult to put together a collection for it. (And if it is, again, throw in a pi system, as well, and get around all the hassles!) If I had unlimited money and room, yes, I'd put together an entire game room with 7 or 8 different machines to provide a multitude of perfect play experiences ... but at this point I can *maybe* afford one cabinet, and have room for only one. But if I win the lottery, I'll have a perfect Tron replica that will play only Tron, an X-Men 4 player machine (set up to play all similar games), a Q-Bert machine for diagonal games, a basic 4-way joystick and 1 or 2 button game for all that style of games, and so on. But the Legend cab could do -almost- everything pretty darn well, it looks like. (And while I can understand why some people hate to see a real cab 'diluted' to be not real ... to me it is still a case of more, rather than less.)
