Long time Launcboxer with my Tankstick.  Recently bought a Legends Ultimate, and, for what it is, it's great.  For my needs, its the perfect size, screen, controls etc. 

BUT - it's no Launchbox!

Has anyone converted their Legends Ultimate to a Launchbox, and how did you do it?

Thanks!!!

Thats really cool! Sorry to not give the best answer here. I don't have one of these cabs (or any cab lol) but I do know that Launchbox needs windows to run. I don't believe this cabinet runs windows. I did see a video on YouTube just now where someone booted into that coinops front end through a USB. Maybe you can set up a windows thumb drive to somehow boot from and install LB on it. Good luck man!

 

See if this helps you idk

Hi! Did you go through with this? Did you find a solution? I'm considering buying this myself, but launchbox and a beefier machine is a requirement :D

As I fired up my ALU for the first time in weeks to play the built in Frontline, I thought again about how to do it!

So no, nothing yet. 
 

I would want it to be purely native (not run through the ALU system at all. 
 

I was thinking today to perhaps built a duplicate controller to the same dimensions as the controller/computer portion of the ALU to simply drop in. That way, reversible. 
 

I really think the ALU has pretty much nailed the controls you want (joysticks, spinners, trackball). I have a Tron stick on the right, and I would want a “firable” spinner like Frontline or Tron on the left. 

Would also have to figure out how to connect the built in monitor to a PC. May not be worth the effort though.

I’ve never built a controller from scratch, but that’s what I’m thinking. 

What are y’all thinking?
