    #11 - ION mod idea by evil-98 #1

    My idea is to have a standalone MAME emulator arcade stick. the MAME will be run off of the ION, which i believe is powerful enough to run. built in speakers, mouse, and for any keyboard issues you can use the on screen or just plug one in.

    This is just a basic layout before i get in to more detail.

    7-15-09 Render;

    Need to get a feel for it size and how my basic layout works together. decided to move the button and joystick center to the distance between the mouse touch pad and the on button. now it feels more even. im going to be doing overlay on top of this render to get a feel possible graphic design as well as design placement. (ie speakers, USB ports, headphone/mic ports)

    Just wait till he busts out the renders lol...

    Just for the record--I know Rocky so I guess maybe I am not supposed to select his design/s?

    I wonder how that is going to work because ALL of us know a lot of the guys who hang out in forums...

    Maybe some way to submit on the QT?
