    Default Pinball FX2 VR + VR pin cabinet = best virtual pinball experience ever!

    So for the past month or so I've been tinkering around with building a VR pinball (+ mame) cabinet controller. The cabinet was made locally by someone who makes professional grade restoration pinball and MAME cabinets, it's made exactly to the specs of the first 10" of a real pinball cabinet. I primed the cabinet, sprayed it a metallic blue color and then clear coated it. Wiring up the buttons wasn't too difficult and thanks to the Teency-LC with PinSim software installed the whole thing is plug and play once everything is wired up. Below are links for the cabinet instructions (thanks Jeremy @ Tested.com!), the buttons I used (recommended by cabinet maker, they work great) and the type of wired I used for wiring up the buttons.

    I did add a few more items to make the cabinet feel more like a real pinball machine. I added a real lockdown bar and coin door. I also plan to add side rails using some old side rails off of one of my real pinball machines.

    This morning I was able to give the cabinet a try in Pinball FX2 VR. Just wow. Pinball FX2 with a VR cabinet controller is easily the best virtual pinball experience I've had. I can't wait to try more tables once they are released.

    That's really, really cool! I'm curious, would it be possible to rig up an actual plunger that could mimic the in game plunger's movement?
