That's actually pretty cool, since A1UP machines don't require quarters to work. However, given the "quality" of A1UP, I doubt these things will last long.
I worked somewhere that put some in the break room. They didn’t get used that much (we never had time, heh) and they still ended up with issues. These were the very first batch so maybe they’ve improved but having spent a lot of time in laundromats, there’s no way they are going to last more than a few months.
Just thought I'd share that I moved into a new house last weekend and one thing I discovered is that the crazy person who lived here before me had Cat8 ethernet wired to every room in the house. I don't know why anyone would ever do that, but the good news is it will only take 5 seconds to reinstall Civ6 after I uninstall it in disgust, which happens on a weekly basis.
I used to work somewhere which, among other things, did security systems and in-home networking. We had a customer who was a typical small business tyrant, except his business was run out of his house. Oh, and he was extremely paranoid, even more so than these dudes usually are. He had every inch of his house, inside and out, covered with cameras and would call us the second any of them so much as blinked out for a second.
But yeah, he had a setup like this apparently. I never figured out what he did other than monitor his cameras. We speculated the real issue was he didn't trust his wife as he was away on business often, leaving her at home in the Truman Show. We didn't set this up for him. He'd burnt through two other IT companies by the time he got to us. And yes, after a while (too long, if you ask me) he was requested to find someone else to service his IT needs. Luckily, I only had to deal with the guy on the phone but my co-workers had to make the trip out there. I guess his network would have rivaled office buildings we'd worked on. lol
Re: lag. I have the Arcade Legends cab and after living with it for a while, I'm really surprised more people aren't mentioning the lag in the newer games. I'm not the most critical gamer, but for instance, I was trying to play Boogie Wings the other night and I had to double check that I wasn't playing a streaming game (which I've found to be unplayable). I'm not sure what's under the hood, but it's really disappointing they couldn't have given it a little more horsepower. I still think it's worth the money, but I'm using it with a retropie and enjoying it more that way.
