More than one?, hehe.

Yes, but im dosent play so much Mame currectly and is still on mame around 0.7x (yes about 10 years ago). Im should update it a day.

Howover im do mostly moved to mostly playing pinball recently, so im installed the fully legally Pinball Arcade, where im have purchased all dix seasons. The recreation on that simulator is insanly great and play very very well. This is also why im currectly using trackball panel. Its to navigate around in its menus and of course having pinball buttons etc. So the cab have mostly been changed more or less to a arcade pinball simulator, but im do can still play trackball mame games on it of couse (and the mame sign should change to something different).

So of course im using my own frontend too (still).

The right cabinet is just a regular Jamma cabinet, with no plans to mame or PC that one. So currectly its a GameElf 135 to 1 jamma board. Im also have one dedicated game as welll....

Here is a another FE, which looks insanely cool and its even support full VR:
http://digitalcybercherries.com/

The reason is, its could been fun to tryout specific light gun games in that way, which motions controllers would been very good with.

Howover the system requirements is of course quite high, due you require the minimum VR specs and is not a replacements of GameEX and any other FE in a regular cabinets.

But, yes, VR is fun.
