    I have been working on my seatmover and PC:

    Upgraded to a used 10700K/2080S that I found reasonable cheap - and sold my 6600K/1080 for almost the same I paid years ago(!)

    Also bought a used Thrustmaster T300RS to replace my G27.

    My handbrake was connected via an old PCB from a keyboard, so I decided to finally make the button box that I needed for so long. BUT one of the +12v from the lights in the buttons hit a wire and fried the PCB :blush I bought a new keyboard, but it was impossible to solder on the new PCB.. :mad:

    So I used one of these:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Zero-Delay...707961?hash=item4dbcd74b79:g:9e8AAOSwOnlgHmcq

    Its an arcade USB encoder, Windows recognises this as a generic joystick.

    The GaminRoom is in an old barn, there is heating, but not always enough in the winter, so I took a electric heater apart and moved the controls to the sim (the grey turn buttons) Now it is possible to adjust temp and fan :grin The two displays are reused from the old dash, they show JRK and wipermotor temps, they are placed so that they are visible through the nose gap on my Index while playing.:)

    Used both round and square buttons to easier being able to recognize them while in VR. The 3 in the bottom are rotary encoders. (missing the knobs) but the only work in one direction with the USB encoder...:think

    I have been collecting old consoles:
    [​IMG]
    From the left: Super Nintendo, WII, Xbox 360, Sega Master System II, C64 Mini and a Dava-tronic VideoSport! The Dava-Tronic (from Daells Varehus in Denmark) is from 1976 and is from the first generation on consoles with different games built in: Tennis and Hockey - in reallity just ping-pong with a white dot and two white bars :popcorn

    Should have my old Commodore 64 lying around somewhere but can't find it, so the C64 Mini must do the job until I find it :)

    Almost all the gaming merchandise are from Ebay...;)

    The VR stand, made from PVC tubing and a styrofoam head with a batman mask, the usb connectors are build in, so the controllers are charging when not in use.

    The Street Fighter Arcade is home-made from MDF and equipped with a Pandoras Box with 645 old arcade games :cool:
