I have. The results are here...
Since this picture, I got a nice transparency for the sign above,
It's a 4 player set up + 1 trackball + 1 spinner (sadly the spinner
stopped working, and i've yet to have time to figure out why)
the trackball and spinner are USB devices. The buttons all
go through a device that connects to the PS2 port. A standard
PS2 keyboard also plugs into the device.
So the MAME cabinet is the "kids machine". They use it in MAME
mode a lot, but also use it for general purpose surfing, etc.
