SO you say you have 2 player action on the way as well? And you just use a PS controller mapped for the different systems? And how do you output from the G4 to the TV?
That was sort of the reason I made this. I have about 18 gaming consoles, and my TV area was getting a little tight.
2 Player isn't actually working yet, there's a few problems with that, that I have yet to work out, but one player works great the the moment, and yes, it's just a PS2 controller mapped for the different systems. It works really well. Actually, given the fact that Bannister does most of the emu's, the setup with Emulation Enhancer is quite awesome. Some of the emu's are a little funky with the way it's set up (Handy, Snes9x, Stella) but overall it's pretty seamless.
The video output is just S-Video out to TV. I'm using an ATI 8500, and it works pretty well. I did a bunch of comparisons of some of the original systems and the Emulated versions via S-Video and the latter actually look better than the originals!
