Meh, seems like a waste of time to me. I understand the draw, but otherwise, don't see the purpose. Much easier to just install MAME and other emu's on your computer, and just pipe it through your TV. There's plenty of joysticks, gamepads, and converters for console gamepad/joysticks out there, to get just the right level of control that you want, without having to hack old arcade boards together.
But then, I never really saw the point in going to the arcades to play games, when I could play the same games at home or at a friends.
