Thanks. There are a number of reasons for a 1player only:

- It's a 24 inch screen so the cabinet is not actually that wide; a 2 player CP would be a little cramped. The decision to go 'Slim' was based on space constraints of my gaming room as I have a number of other project builds to accommodate.
- I don't have any friends who are into the types of games/fighting games I play on the cabinet so a 2 player panel would be mostly redundant.
- My son, who I do play some fighting games with, prefers to use a pad rather than a stick - had he been interested in learning, I would have thought about updating to a 2 player panel.
- If I do end up moving to a new house with more room, I'll build another one for the hell of it along with a more traditional style cabinet.


The original Vewlix often comes as a single player version:

Thanks very much for the feedback, it's appreciated!

I'll be sure to post my current project when it's finished. I'm working on a VR Space Sim seat at the moment. I will wait to decide which headset to go for.

Here are a couple of pictures:



The seat paneling has been scratch made:
